The therapists at Medical Massage Professionals don't simply point and push. Instead, they tailor their services to each client's needs—something they've been doing for the last decade. Founder Marian Sotelo-Paz has more than 20 years of industry experience under her fingers. At three locations around Miami, she's built a team of similarly seasoned professionals. All that experience is reflected in the team's versatility, which allows it to offer massage services for pain management, injury recovery, simple relaxation, and a variety of other ailments and issues.
A full-fledged day spa, Massage by Design offers much more than its name might convey. Here, massage therapists practice uncommon modalities, such as Tian Di bamboo massage, in which smooth bamboo sticks are rolled across the back help improve circulation and alleviate musculoskeletal pain. Custom signature massages blend many modalities, including Swedish and deep tissue, to treat each individual's most pressing needs. But beyond the physical manipulation, aestheticians revitalize complexions with anti-aging facials and microdermabrasions. Mani-pedis beautify nails, lash extensions create lavish looks, and waxing gets rid of unwanted hair in a safer manner than leaning over a campfire.
Guided by aesthetic intuition, the technicians at Touch of Life Med Spa use scientifically refined procedures to improve their clients' skin texture and tone. A Candela laser system bombards dermal blemishes with controlled pulses of laser light energy, helping to hide the appearance of stubble, spider veins, or acne scars. Additionally, the center's chemical peels and facials can leave countenances looking as youthful and as hydrated as an ice sculpture of Dorian Gray.
As the resident spa at AB Sport Club, Relax Spa attracts clients who have active lifestyles. To account for muscle aches and strains, the staff offers pre- and post-activity sports massages, stretch-heavy Thai massages, and bamboo massages, where the massage therapist kneads with a bamboo cane instead of a mannequin's hands. For more cosmetically minded services, they also schedule ultrasonic cavitation fat-reduction treatments and waxing sessions.
Niks Wellness founder Lisa Jolley doesn't forget about skincare during her time off. That's when she does some of her most important work: speaking on behalf of her nonprofit organization, Jolley Faces. The program sends her to local schools, women's shelters, recovery homes, and other locations to explain the importance of proper skincare—and how to achieve healthy, glowing skin. After all, she's an expert. At Niks Wellness, she and her staff perform custom facials, body treatments, peels, waxing sessions, and massages.
Heavenly Therapeutic Massage's licensed technicians help soothe chronic pain and melt away stress with a wide range of massage styles, from relaxing Swedish and scalp treatments, to deep tissue and shiatsu. Far more than a simple tool for relaxation, soothing muscle manipulation can improve range of motion for those with physically demanding jobs, and flush toxins from the muscles. Massage therapists also treat hardworking feet to reflexology treatments or pamper skin with exfoliating wraps and scrubs. And for customer convenience, the spa's mobile teams of technicians travels to homes, offices, and in-home spa parties.
