Riverside Massage transcends the script of standard spa services by theming their massages and facials around one of the world's most relaxing spots: the ocean. Tropical fruits such as papaya, lime, and coconut sweeten refreshing facials customized to each client's skin, and masks made from Dead Sea mud cleanse pores by absorbing oil and sebum. Inside private treatment rooms, licensed massage therapists administer sand dollar Swedish massages, angler deep-tissue massages, and the jellyfish shiatsu.
Within their spacious, newly renovated riverside space, Elite Body Spa & Laser Center's capable staff embrace a multidisciplinary roster of fitness, health, and beauty treatments. Lasers banish unwanted follicles and fade spider veins, while the well-trained hands of a massage therapist work away stress, tension, fibromyalgia, and shoulder pains from excessive high fives. Extremities lounge in the soothing warmth of paraffin wax dips or glamour of mani-pedis, and above-neck areas shine with expert makeup applications and hairstyling.
At A Touch of Therapeutic, nationally certified massage therapist Jon Devlin helps free frazzled muscles and release the body’s full potential for movement. A student of advanced myoskeletal-alignment techniques, Jon customizes body treatments to the needs of the client while drawing from a broad array of services. Deep-tissue and myofascial sessions treat chronic muscle tension, and neuromuscular and craniosacral techniques help calm and restore balance to the body.
For the last 15 years, A Unique Miracle owner Darlene Torosian has rebuilt clients' haircuts from the ground up and relaxed tense muscles with deep-tissue massages. Amid sleek wood floors and earth-toned walls, Darlene helps bodies slough off dead skin using salt scrubs crafted in-house and gives hair golden highlights bright enough to stand out in crowds and ruin crowd scenes in black-and-white films.
A soothing wellness center for stressed souls of all ages, Serenity Massage houses owners Seren Elizabeth and Bethany LaBelle and a team of licensed massage therapists who specialize in mollifying tensed musculature. Patrons can pick their one-hour massage from a total of six options: Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, hot-stone, pregnancy, and Thai-yoga massage. The Swedish massage promotes basic relaxation, using subtle pressure and unsubtle bribery tactics to coax blood to better flow through veins, and the deep-tissue massage penetrates deep into muscles to break down tense sinews. Athletes can call time-out with a sports massage that helps improve flexibility and range of motion, and stressed-out curling-iron jugglers can take a break from the daily grind with the calming hot-stone massage. Take a load off before loading up on diapers with the pregnancy massage, designed to handle neck tension and pregnancy-related sciatica, or take an active role in your relaxation with the Thai-yoga massage, which incorporates floor-mat stretching and rhythmic movements. Benefits of massages include improved posture, injury prevention, stress relief, and reduced muscle tension.
Within Moksha Spa & Wellness Center's 5,000 square feet of tranquil, Asian-themed space, staffers inspire well-being with holistic therapies. Reiki healing aims to clear blocked energy pathways, and shirodhara—an ancient ayurvedic technique in which herbal oil flows over the forehead while a staff member massages the face, scalp, neck, and shoulders—calms the body and mind. Couples enjoy candlelight and a rose-petal bath in the massage room, where therapists wrap bodies in organic exfoliants or detoxifying clay. The spa radiates with color, from brilliant oranges and yellows in the reception area to vibrant red sofas with metallic accents. Cheerful lime-green walls surround the pedicure room, where guests ascend to a cushioned and tiled throne for foot pampering and scepter filing.
