If a massage therapist is lulling their clients to occupy a relaxed state then they should be in that place of relaxation too. At least that’s how the owner of Miami Foot & Tea Bar feels. His staff of reflexology specialists not only takes care of their clients, they also take care of themselves with healthy lifestyles, ongoing massage training, and calm demeanors. “I can tell you, from knowing them personally, they have zero stress,” he says. They do have drive¬¬––each has studied with internationally known instructors to learn the intricacies of true reflexology. “Just by massaging your foot, they can tell you what your [health] problems are, and they can also help you heal,” he says.
The reflexologists on staff are not the only ones striving to promote holistic health. Tea specialists preside over a collection of more than 20 teas, each specially selected for its healing properties and its ability to calm screaming teapots. Based on consultations with clients and their reflexologists, tea gurus recommend brews to take home, including organic verbena mint, Taiwanese green, or Darjeeling black.
Named after the Greek word for me, em?na spa centers on the individual through a bevy of complimentary amenities, soothing d?cor, and pampering services. The doting staff stays true to the spa's namesake, ushering clients into one of six private treatment rooms for a revitalizing microdermabrasion or detoxifying peel accented by organic products, cutting-edge technology, and aesthetic know-how. Stylists at a full-service salon and nail technicians pore over features with attentive services that elicit youthful beauty. For full-body enhancement, massage therapists unearth tension through four modalities as licensed physician's assistants target unwanted hair and skin blemishes with GentleMax laser technology.
Sometimes family can drive you crazy. Other times it can provide relaxation, rest, and beauty. For more than 15 years, the family that owns Cuerpos Care Medical Spa has done just that for their clients with therapeutic massage services, facial and body treatments, and chemical peeling. Various facial services get creative with the use of electric currents, oxygen jets, and platelet-rich plasma harvested from the patient’s own blood or stolen from a mosquito’s rainy-day fund. The staff also administers microdermabrasions and acne treatments to undo facial imperfections, and Botox injections help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Through the concentrated use of infrared light, LA Tans & Aesthetic Center helps clients reach their health apex through internal cleansing treatments. Take a seat in the sauna, a steam-free booth filled with infrared heaters waiting to saturate the skin in radiance as powerful as the sun's, minus the damaging ultraviolet rays and obnoxious ego. The infrared heat targets fat cells, lifts them head over heels, and shakes their pockets loose of contaminants in the form of perspiration. Infrared sessions are thought to increase circulation and stimulate tissues, which may be useful for treating arthritis or limbering up for a strenuous jazz-hands performance.

Named Best Plastic Surgeon with an Artistic Streak in 2010 by the Miami New Times, Dr. Jose Perez-Gurri keeps up appearances with face-lifting Botox treatments and more than 25 years of doctoral expertise. Each nonsurgical facial enhancement uses a purified natural protein to smooth the lines in skin sands like a gentle wave. The in-office treatment injects small quantities of the protein into specific problem areas, blocking nerve impulses and reducing the muscle activity that forms wrinkles. Botox treatments are quick and require little to no downtime, ensuring that sessions are easily squeezable into lunch hours or after politely excusing yourself from a dinner date. Like invisible-ink tattoos, full results can take up to three weeks to appear, and results last up to six months. Dr. Perez-Gurri is expert at addressing any patient concerns, and he and his staff can do so in both English and Spanish.
