TrackStar Wellness Spa's cadre of dedicated therapists sets clients afloat on a lazy river of relaxation, their soothing services bolstered by spa amenities such as on-site showers, complimentary water, and relaxing music. Strive to hydrate and rejuvenate dry, cracked skin with a full-body scrub. Epidermal deserts are first treated to a dry brush exfoliation that whisks away dead skin cells, as well as microscopic tumbleweeds and cartoon roadrunners. An organic body butter is then applied to the skin. Guests can choose from five different scents for their treatment, including ginger, lemongrass, and green tea. Following the scrub, bodies are kneaded with a Swedish massage that uses long, flowing strokes to relax exhausted muscles. Tired tootsies can opt for the Thai foot-reflexology option, which applies precise thumb and finger pressure to reflex points on the feet that may correspond to different parts of the body. Through these anatomical connections, foot reflexology can help improve circulation, stimulate toxin removal, and silence toes' incessant squeals for roast beef.
New York Dominican Beauty Salon evokes big-city glamour in its cozy Randallstown salon. After haircuts, stylists can blow out hair into flyaway-free ’dos and add all-over color or highlights.

Relaxing Moments consists of a registered massage practitioner and a foot-care specialist. The former relaxes bodies with Swedish massage, relieves aches and pains with deep-tissue massage, and assuages expectant mothers with prenatal massage. The foot-care specialist practices Thai foot reflexology, which balances and de-stresses the body through massage techniques and inverted tap-dancing moves performed on the feet.
Not everyone has the dedication to complete 500 hours of instruction in a field, demonstrate a mastery of the skills they've learned, and pass a standardized exam. But that's precisely the challenge that James Montgomery undertook to earn a soothing stamp of approval from the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork. Today, his extensive knowledge helps him pursue his personal mission to improve each client’s well being. He employs deep-tissue, Swedish, prenatal, and myofascial massage, among other styles, to impart a range of health benefits. While James works out of Catonsville Wellness Center, he can also bring his services to his clients’ homes or to the fallout shelters they haven’t left since that false alarm.
The therapists at Mommie Massage Center focus their skills on mothers, expectant mothers, and other women who endure their fair share of stress. Their specialty—prenatal massage—relieves tension in the lower back and hips, where moms-to-be tend to experience the most pain. The therapists also offer foot and leg treatments that can alleviate water retention and reduce the appearance of varicose veins. Often they rely on special add-ons—aromatherapy scents, hot stones—to make the treatments that much more relaxing. In a bit of synergy, Mommie Massage Center is located inside of Little Bo Peep, Inc., where sonographers create 3D ultrasound images that tell mothers if their babies will in fact be born in three dimensions or will simply exist as a straight line on a sliver of graph paper.
