ASAP Therapeutic Massage & Myotherapy’s therapists stay true to their center’s name, taking a fast-acting approach to pain relief with massages that help myofascial aches from chronic and acute pains from day-to-day life. Though they’ve been around since 1985, the staff needs only an hour or two to treat each client with gliding Swedish strokes or a targeted sports massage designed to improve flexibility. Therapists take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way, taking time to make sure every muscle gets the attention it deserves. For a hard-to-find massage experience, try the center’s specialty trigger-point myotherapy, which tackles myofascial aches and heals necks sore from painful 360-degree rotations. ASAP boasts a staff including multiple therapists and a full time receptionist, organizing the appointments in their four fully-equipped treatment rooms.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
The therapists at Genuine Massage & Spa blend treatments from Asia and the West to help clients achieve ultimate relaxation. Using natural marine and herbal ingredients, they tease backs with more than 15 varieties of enhanced massages, including the Royal massage, which complements traditional Thai techniques with therapeutic touches such as bending, stretching, and pulling. They also boost their menu with a variety of treatments to address skin care needs, from waxing services to purifying and hydrating facials.
From rehabilitating muscles after an injury to giving a stressed client an hour of instant R & R, Neva Massage Center’s licensed massage therapists are led by certified therapists Leonid–trained in both Europe and America– and Iryna, a medical doctor in Russia. They tailor a range of modalities to every sort of need. Their classic long and smooth Swedish massage shoos away stress lingering between muscles, like a vacuum cleaner shoos away a dog that loves a good dirty carpet. They apply deep-tissue therapy’s concentrated pressure to injuries or points of chronic pain, whether in the head, neck, or back. Neva's therapists can also target muscle spasms, insomnia, edema, and depression with their meticulous kneads. They take relaxation a step further with hot stones, warm towels, and therapeutic scents, and they lengthen their clients’ “me time” with 90-minute extended massages.
Body & Sol Tan Spa wields the power of indoor sunshine with three types of UV tanning apparatuses. The standup Sundome booths and Ovation beds with UVB-free facial tanners bronze skin for a fresh-off-the-beach appearance, minus the messy sand and arm-floatie tan lines. Alternatively, the salon's airbrush technicians emulate the sun's skin-darkening effects with UV-free spray tans that can create a weeklong bronze in mere seconds with a tinted mélange of ginseng, rosemary, and aloe vera. Aside from tanning services, the staff facilitates head-to-toe relaxation with therapeutic massages, full-body scrubs, deep-tissue, myofascial release, and sports massages.
