Everything about Embrace Massage Wellness's private suite facility screams relaxation. Or rather, whispers. From the warm-colored walls to the soothing sounds of ocean waves that flit through the air, Embrace was designed with serenity in mind. Massage therapist Roni Spillane doesn't take walk-ins. Her appointment-only scheduling ensures that her massages take place without the distraction of other guests, loud noises, or strobe lights that rolled away from a nightclub. In addition to massage, she pampers guests with bodily treatments and scrubs, specially designed spa packages for men, and facial- and eye-treatment add-ons.
Kristin Stewart knows a thing or two about relaxation. A licensed massage therapist who specializes in Swedish, Thai, and deep-tissue massages, she's mastered the human body to the point where she can quickly find and heal sources of chronic pain. But why stop at the human body? Kristin is also a certified equine sports massage therapist, which means she can travel to barns or stables and perform relaxing massages on horses. Whether she's treating a person or a horse, she always makes sure her client feels comfortable and has plenty of salt to lick.
Operated by the Gupta Institute for Integrative Medicine, Zenquility Medi-Spa offers both total relaxation and therapeutic pain relief. In a room with heated massage tables, a backlit waterfall, and flameless candles, couples de-stress together as a certified massage therapist loosens muscles and softens skin with a chocolate-peppermint- or rose-scented body butter. To ease chronic discomfort, staffers customize sports and prenatal massages, and they perform a medicated massage with a topical formula created by board-certified pain-management physician Rajan Gupta.
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.
Swedish massage's five basic movements yield a bounty of benefits. Find out more about the massage's kneading technique, petrissage, with Groupon?s introduction.
Kneading, rolling, and squeezing?this, in a few words, is petrissage, a type of Swedish massage technique that focuses on compression and release. Working in combination with Swedish massage's five other movements, these deep-reaching motions are designed to lift soft tissue away from its underlying structures, effectively stretching muscles and other soft tissues and promoting circulation so all your blood doesn?t pile up in your elbows. Specific maneuvers include kneading with the whole hand, using the thumbs to apply pressure to thinner tissue, and rolling skin between the fingers to prevent it from adhering to the fascia (that is, sheets of connective tissue) below and causing stiffness. Massage oil or cream is often used to help these strokes glide smoothly and avoid pinching the skin. Petrissage, like Swedish massage in general, often results in increased muscle mobility, improved peristaltic, or bowel, movement when performed on the abdomen and, of course, a sense of noodly relaxation.
