A cozy massage table. Dim lights. And, most importantly, a therapist that tailors her massages to needs of each client. Sarah J. Long's treatments range from relaxing to deep-tissue, allowing her to accommodate both emotional and physical tension. Each kneading lasts a full 60 minutes, meaning she doesn't count the 10 minutes it takes to get comfortable beforehand as part of her hour-long service.
At Indigo Lotus Massage, a licensed massage therapist can ease clients' aches and pains in 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions. Visitors can opt for soothing Swedish or intense deep-tissue strokes?or amplify the relaxation with a hot-stone massage. Those looking to switch things up can try one of the studio's reiki or aromatherapy sessions.
Whenever she mends a set of muscles or deep cleans oil-prone skin, licensed massage and skin therapist Antonette Fay draws from more than 12 years of experience.

Skinsations Health & Wellness Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services.

Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.

The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.
