Relaxation. Pain relief. General well-being. These are just some of the benefits massage offers. At Nails and More Spa, massage therapist Chyanne Perry nurtures these benefits with Swedish and hot-stone massages. By lighting scented candles and using essential oils, she creates an even more tranquil experience with aromatherapy. A master of many muscle-melting modalities, she's also an expert in reflexology, alleviating aches throughout the body by manipulating trigger points on the feet.
At Charm Salon & Boutique, Laurie Weber, a licensed massage therapist focuses on chronic pain, stress, and injury. Laurie has long been devoted to helping others heal. As an adult, she became interested in holistic therapies, earning the status of reiki master in 2008 and incorporating meditation into her own routine.
Today, Laurie offers several modalities, from hot-stone and Swedish massage to reflexology—all in an effort to pamper you and provide another chance to defend your status as top break-dancer this side of the Cuyahoga River. Many of Laurie’s clients claim her techniques not only help with physical aches, but with emotional well-being, too.
Lava Massage Studio owner Laura Pacanin helms a team of licensed massage therapists, all of whom share her belief in massage’s unique ability to relieve stress and stimulate the body's natural healing processes. At sessions held in your home or in one of the studio’s private rooms, the therapists draw on their knowledge of Eastern and Western healing modalities to dissipate buildups of tension. Their signature Thai massages incorporate elements of yoga and acupuncture to balance the body’s out-of-whack energies; hot-stone massages take it a step further, combining Thai strokes with the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones. Among the modalities more commonly seen in a Western spa, sports massages help the body recover from injuries incurred while slam-dunking or arm-wrestling with the opposing team’s mascot.
Laura and her crew supplement their bodywork treatments with add-ons such as exfoliating foot scrubs and migraine therapy. After your appointment, visit the studio’s shop to stock up on unconventional beauty products such as goat's-milk soap and housemade sugar scrubs.
