At Red Rock Massage, certified massage therapists and skilled aestheticians deliver a range of relaxing spa treatments. Swedish massages reduce tightness and improve circulation with a combination of gliding, kneading, and friction strokes, and deep-tissue techniques dig into muscle tissue to excavate stress and fossilized car keys. With Swedish strokes and volcanic basalt rocks heated up to 120 degrees, hot-stone massages soothe the last shreds of stress from a long day of asking coworkers about the location of Carmen Sandiego. Staff members massage necks, heads, and shoulders and rub scalps with scented aromatherapy oils during a moisture-minded Wax and Relax treatment, which also washes away tension from hands and feet with a warm bath of paraffin wax.
At Petra's Massage Spa's brand new, bigger studio, the licensed massage therapists at Petra’s Massage Spa daub bodies with rejuvenating techniques tailored to soothe each client's specific muscular ailments. Patrons relax in chic private rooms while therapists’ dexterous fingers help coax tightness and stress from muscles with the flowing motions of Swedish, deep-tissue, and couples massages. Treatments such as sugar scrubs and facials from licensed aestheticians further cultivate relaxation and cleanse skin. Soft beds, light-filtering drapes, and a soothing atmosphere embrace comfort seekers, transporting them to sublime planes of relaxation not experienced since their last slow-motion pillow fight.

Communication is key at Massage Mantra, where a team of seven licensed massage therapists encourages clients to describe their pains and stresses and listens closely in order to structure treatments suitable to their needs. Once they have taken your input to heart, they stretch out their nimble hands and begin to soothe muscles with one of six available bodywork modalities, from reiki treatments that calibrate the body's energy levels to sports massages that methodically extract hockey pucks lodged between muscles. A roster of skin-specific facials complements the massages’ inner healing with infusions of nourishing vitamins that promote a healthy outer glow.
Minska Massage specializes in services that relax and transform the body. The staff of attentive massage therapists performs its healing art in every environment imaginable, from offices to homes to the comforts of three spa locations. Massage services help soothe pains caused by athletic activity or knot-inducing office work, and lengthy sessions can help bodies release toxins locked deep within muscles. The team of aestheticians perfects bodies’ appearances with body wraps, saunas, and other services designed to reduce cellulite or trim inches off waists and thighs in time for beach season, high-school reunions, or National Leave Your Pants at Home Day.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
Sabrena Wicker had a light-bulb moment as she received her first massage: her career calling was to become a massage therapist. Wicker enrolled in massage school, earned a degree, and opened Tinker Massage and Day Spa Studio. Within the spa's softly lit treatment rooms, massage therapists practice several modalities and perform spa treatments for singles or doubles. To enhance bodywork sessions, the therapists incorporate elements of nature—heated stones infuse heat into muscles, essential oils perfume the air, and a charm of hummingbirds creates a relaxing breeze.
