Touch of Pure Joy Massage & Day Spa situates itself as an oasis for physical relaxation, and has relaxed clients with its signature therapies since 1999. A one-hour hot-stone massage gives stressed clients the opportunity to unwind and enjoy an utterly unrushed experience as aromatherapeutic oils perfume the air and stones send warmth deep into muscles. For those experiencing chronic pain or the discomforts of pregnancy, deep-tissue, applied kinesiology, and prenatal massages forge a truce between muscles caught in a tug-of-war match between the office chair and that recliner in the office lobby. When they've explored the spa's extensive repertoire of relaxing massages, clients can extend their day spa mini vacations with a skin-perfecting facial, or bid adieu to sandpaper skin with hand and foot salt scrubs.
The massage therapists at Horizon Massage and Wellness have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
The beds at all seven Cancun Tan locations boast a variety of amenities to evoke a relaxing day at the beach, with headrests cushioning necks, body fans creating cool breezes, and stereos constantly playing the theme to Baywatch. Clients who prefer UV-free shades can step into the VersaSpa booth, which evenly mists a sunless-tanning formula all over the body and dries quickly to avoid any discomfort.
Tell us about your business.
I have been an esthetician for 3+ years and I've now opened my own suite. I love to make people relax while I give them the skincare that makes them feel fresh and beautiful. I use all-natural products because it is better to know exactly what is going into the largest organ of your body.
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
There are magazines to read outside of my room, and I like to give water for when the service is over.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
I keep it calm and relaxing in my room, I always tell my clients to be as comfortable as they can, and if they fall asleep then I have done my job.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
I was told that I have healing hands. They said that I bring comfort and take away the stress from the world and that I helped them to forget their problems while they were with me.
