Ojas customizes its Body in Bliss massage session to the needs of each individual client in order to drain the body's tree trunk of its stress sap. The massage technician will start by speaking with you about your aches, pains, and anxiety dreams and will then use that knowledge to set his or her hand phasers to "relax." From there, simply lie still and bliss out as your tensions are massaged, stroked, kneaded, and occasionally garotted away. Body in Bliss incorporates a serenity-enhancing blend of essential oils that massage the nose as much as the body and uses warm stones to stimulate circulation and draw deep-set tension out of the body's muscles, joints, and field of glandmines. You'll leave Ojas's premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
For more than 20 years, Integrated Bodywork Associates' mission is to help individuals overcome pain and discomfort related to tension and limited range of movement. To that end, they employ massage therapists that practice a diverse number of modalities such as Swedish and hot stone massage. Meanwhile, therapeutic methods—such as deep-tissue massage, acupressure, aromatherapy, and myofascial massage—target specified complaints such as injuries incurred while playing sports or volunteering to stand in as a volleyball net.

DK's spa services specialize in making your body feel like a newly constructed bliss temple, helping skin look its healthiest and bodies feel like the bodies of younger humans. Have your overgrown hair-garden cut and cleared of snogging teenagers ($65+ for women, $35+ for men, and $25+ for children), blow-dried ($40+), and relaxed ($85+). Otherwise, shock new life into distressed tresses with the protein-infusion treatment ($60+) or give it a custom coating of nutritious food with the banana and virgin-olive-oil mask ($35+). Neglected nail beds and compromised cuticles, meanwhile, will appreciate a spa manicure ($30+), spa pedicure ($50+), or a dip in the warm waxiness of a paraffin treatment ($35 for manicure, $55 for pedicure). A deep-cleansing facial ($100) evicts delinquent dirt and grime from your pore apartments and pairs well with an eyebrow waxing ($18), bikini waxing ($30), or sideburn waxing ($15) for the retired Elvis impersonator looking to start over. For a more full-body bliss-out, melt away muscle maladies with a 60-minute Swedish massage ($80) or prep for a day at the shore with the bronze and glow ($85)—a treatment that consists of a salt-glow body rubdown followed by an evenly applied self-tanner.
When licensed massage therapist Dhanushka Gamage sees the body, he envisions a vertical line that runs down the middle of it. It’s this line he to which he attempts to realign the body in order to better stand up to gravity and maintain posture. This technique, called structural integration, is one of eight different massage modalities from which Dhanushka draws in alleviating soft tissue ailments, release tension, and recover from injury.
The massage therapists at Vanity Wellness perform two kinds of massage: reflexology, which targets trigger points in the feet in an effort to affect the rest of the body; and body-relaxation massage, which combines Swedish and deep-tissue strokes with stretching to inspire a sense of calm. Aromatherapy oils can accompany either service, treating noses to more pampering than 1,800-thread-count tissues.
