Spa on the Green's beautifiers relax and freshen epidermises within a two-story ranch-style house filled with soft natural light, plush furniture, and the green accents of potted palms. Aestheticians coddle expression makers with a 50- to 60-minute spa facial, which rejuvenates normal, overactive, or acne-prone skin. Deep cleansing removes accumulated dirt and caked-on pie residue, and gentle exfoliation rousts out rooted impurities, leaving faces glowing and soft.
Sounds of breaking waves mingle with the crackling of a fireplace in this ocean-themed studio that owner Veronique Clement turned into an idyllic haven for massage. The licensed massage therapist rubs the skin with organic oils, and soothes tension and stress with a primary focus on light and medium strokes. Her nine massage services include cold stone, aromatherapy, and bamboo massage. She also offers refreshments and snacks such as gourmet tea and chocolate.
At Agawam Massage & Bodyworks, licensed massage therapists Kristin Held and Nichole Hines join forces to help liberate bodies from chronic pain and promote healing throughout the body. Craniosacral therapy is one of several specialties performed inside the duo's warm, private treatment rooms, relying on gentle pressure to stimulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the spine, ease restricted nerve passages, and realign bones. The team can also relax bodies with traditional Swedish massages, release chronic tension with deep-tissue massages, and keep tight muscles from being swept away by the wind during hot-stone massages.
Inside this beautiful Victorian home-turned-muscle-molding-studio, certified massage therapist Sheila Maleckas has created a soothing and tranquil space for her clients to unwind both mentally and physically. Massage sessions take place in a quiet, private, dimly lit room where Sheila will administer one hour of traditional Swedish massage techniques, transforming tension-riddled body cots into soothed and snuggly sleeping bags. Utilizing a luxurious lineup of oils, lotions, rolling, and targeted percussion moves, Swedish massage is an ideal way to relieve general aches and pains, banish stress, stimulate circulation, and restore mental clarity lost after years of listening to auto-tuned newscasts. Clients suffering from a superabundance of spinal tension can also use the value of today’s deal to upgrade to 90 minutes of posture-improving, joint-revitalizing, knot-unknotting therapy for an additional $25 fee.
Licensed massage therapist Heather Dexheimer of Simply Serenity Massage draws on more than a decade of experience as she tunes up tired physiques with the long, fluid strokes of Swedish massage and the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Heather has worked with many athletes, including the Orlando Magic Wheels wheelchair-basketball team, and aims to rehabilitate old injuries and enhance flexibility and athletic performance while kneading muscles. During sessions with Heather, clients can request hot stones for deeper relaxation or for building temporary lean-tos, or pamper appendages with the soothing wax of paraffin treatments.
Owner Gina Scully and fellow bodywork experts specialize in Ashiatsu Oriental massage, during which they hold onto parallel bars on the ceiling for balance while using their bare feet to apply deep pressure to the body and its muscles. Beyond their acrobatic skills, the therapists can blend together other massage modalities to meet each client’s therapeutic needs. They also perform traditional Chinese cupping treatments that use suction to help unwind tight muscles and quickly set backs for tea parties. If desired, clients can choose to add a scent to their session with one of four aromatic blends designed to clear minds, relax the spirit, manage stress, and relieve headaches. Working alongside Gina, aesthetician Deborah Watson promotes health and beauty with facials, chemical peels, body treatments, and waxing services.
