At TherapyWorks of Jacksonville, relaxation is only a side effect. The therapist-s main goals for treatments are more medically minded: treatment of injuries, pain relief, stress reduction, and improved quality of life for their clients. Founder James R. Lehman leads the team of licensed massage therapists and physical therapists, whose services cover common massage modalities, such as deep tissue and Swedish, as well as more specialized neuromuscular and orthopedic work. These therapists personalize each appointment to address a number of rehabilitative concerns, including relief for chronic neck and back tension, automobile and sports injuries, and the weight-bearing aches associated with pregnancy or watermelon smuggling.
All three TherapyWorks clinics strive to craft goal-oriented regimens for their visitors, focusing on concrete outcomes rather than merely suppressing symptoms. They also accept most insurance plans, provided patients have a physician's prescription for treatment.
The bright treatment rooms within Skin Deep Studio & Day Spa evoke sun-drenched meadows of the Italian countryside, tricking clients into believing they've escaped to Tuscany for a European vacation or an anniversary screening of European Vacation. This warm, welcoming environment helps visitors feel at home as they receive skincare, massage, and nail services from a team of talented aestheticians and massage therapists. The staff also performs makeup applications, waxing services, and spa treatments designed specially for men.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Flickering candles softly illuminate Alpha Beauty Clinic's numerous private treatment rooms, where clients relax during services ranging from soothing Swedish massages and firming seaweed wraps for the entire body to specialized facials, such as the Cleopatra 24 Karat Gold facial and the Japanese Pearl facial. The unusual treatments easily attract new clients, yet the spa's welcoming, skilled staffers help to maintain relationships with regulars who've been stopping by since Alpha Beauty Clinic first opened in 1987. The treatment menu isn't the only thing with international flair at Alpha Beauty Clinic. Team members hail from around the globe, and many boast more than a decade's worth of experience. The multicultural staff can speak and recite slam poetry in an assortment of languages including Hindi, Spanish, Italian, and Tagalog.
A lobby decked out with leather chairs, stained wood, tiles, and flowers greets visitors to Massage Bliss & Day Spa, preparing them for a spa visit that melts away the stress and responsibilities of the modern workday. Soft, low lights and gauzy curtains hang over heated massage beds, and two candlelit couples-massage suites surround pairs in a sensual glow during romantic anniversaries or ill-advised first dates. Deep-cleaning facials flush out clogged pores and stimulate blood flow with natural ingredients, such as apple pulp and flaxseed, and aromatic salts and coconut oils soothe digits during spa mani-pedis. The day spa's arsenal of sophisticated technologies beautifies and rejuvenates bodies, with its infrared sauna detoxifying and purifying skin and its TriActive laser smoothing out dimpling and cellulite.
The tinkle of wind chimes announces clients' entry into Healing Waters Therapy, where licensed massage therapist Kristi B. Gabriel relieves muscle tension with health-minded massages. A graduate of the Coastal School of Massage Therapy, Gabriel uses her specialty in deep-tissue massage and neuromuscular therapy to prevent injury during treatments that take place in a space replete with peaceful flourishes—candlelight filters through an intricate wooden-lattice screen, and optional aromatherapy repels people who walk around setting off fireworks so they can enjoy the smell.
