At Foot Spa's locations in Plano and Richardson, the precise application of controlled pressure figures into every holistic treatment. Reflexologists stir mint flavored salt into soaking tubs, immersing clients' feet in the infused water before applying a therapeutic massage to the feet, hands, and ears. Acupressure massages are similar in spirit to acupuncture, except therapists use their fingers to target specific points along the body that stimulate natural healing processes and save their needles for hunting wild balloon animals.
With multiple hairstyling stations and private treatment rooms at its disposal, the team at Plush Salon & Spa offers a variety of beauty and wellness services, including haircuts performed by stylists who receive quarterly Toni&Guy training. Body treatments include everything from facials with all-natural Astara skincare products to a French green-clay body wrap designed to balance the skin, draw out impurities, and help bodies blend in at Hulk conventions.
The mind is ripe with untapped potential. At Hypnotistaz, therapists use focused relaxation to unlock that potential by opening the subconscious, all with the aim of uncovering and overcoming stubborn obstacles that prevent clients from positive personal growth. Through the technique, clients have experienced all manner of benefits, including improving their eating habits, quitting smoking, or reversing lycanthropy. For folks more interested in the metaphysical rather than physical, the hypnotherapists even deal with past life regression.
Since overall well-being is the goal, Hypnotistaz also provides hands-on treatments, such as reiki and Bars de-stress sessions. During Bars sessions, they gently touch a series of 32 trigger points on the skull that cause endorphins to flow and tension to leave the body. Although that particular therapy requires in-person appointments, the adept mesmerists can perform hypnotherapy sessions via Skype.
The client truly is the boss at It’s All About You. After her guests arrive at the studio, massage therapist Michele allows them to dictate which modality they prefer, which areas to focus on, and which areas to avoid. Once this has been determined and sealed with an aromatherapy-oiled handshake, Michele begins her work. A member of the Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals group, she maintains a client-centric practice in more ways than one by basing her pricing on the massage’s duration as opposed to its type. During this time, clients are encouraged to keep an open dialogue so Michele can fully customize the treatment and deliver benefits such as decreased anxiety and enhanced sleep quality.
Stay Healthy Institute?s holistic health practitioners help soothe mind and body with Thai therapy and reflexology sessions. Patrons remain clothed while the Thai therapy combines stretching, palming, and pressure points to help open joints, increase range of motion and flexibility, and soothe muscle pain and tension. Thai therapists are certified with more than 5000 hrs of combined training in Eastern Therapeutically Relaxing Body Medicines including reflexology, acupuncture, thai yoga, and tuina massage and personalize a session accordingly. Likewise, reflexology stimulates the reflex points on the soles of the feet, which can help boost circulation and improve mental clarity along with serving as a powerful stress reliever or strategy to overcome hyper-ticklish feet.
Quick, cookie-cutter pedicures don?t exist at LoAnn?s Nails and Spa. Instead, the salon schedules rejuvenating treatments in 45-, 60-, and 90-minute intervals to ensure no detail goes overlooked. To amp up the indulgence, the professional technicians can follow nail and cuticle grooming with a variety of foot-massage techniques. Stress melts under the application of hot stones, mint masks, and Tiger Balm?an ointment designed to relieve aches caused by wearing uncomfortable shoes or playing footsie with an actual tiger. Clients can also match their fingers to their toes with a spa manicure?featuring standard or chip-resistant gel polish?or pamper their skin with a deluxe facial.
