Dressed in plush robes and spa sandals, guests of ME SPA drift from changing room to treatment room, where they unwind during pampering services such as facials, Swedish massages, and body scrubs. The whole experience is tailor-made for relaxation, right down to the silent cell phone policy. The tranquil quiet the spa remains unbroken by the sound of ringtones or a screeching wail of howler monkeys, allowing enough peace and quiet for stress to evaporate and the senses to be soothed. Upscale extras such as warm oils, hot stones, and scalp massages may be added to gentlemen's manicures, organic enzyme and peptide facials, or full-day packages for enhanced relaxation.
Auredika Mosbach, A Touch of Auredika’s owner and a licensed massage therapist, instills tranquility and limberness in her clients with a variety of massages and body treatments. To combat stress and tightness, she draws upon the long, gliding motions of Swedish massage. Alternatively, deep-tissue work brings relief from chronic pain and tension, and hot-stone massages combine the benefits of both by utilizing the careful placement of hot basalt stones and acupressure. Auredika also continues her education in order to better serve her clients by offering more specialized massage treatments, including prenatal massages, ayurvedic head massages, and reflexology. In addition to massage, she also specializes in body-contouring wraps, which diminish cellulite and lead to slimmer waistlines, and body scrubs, which exfoliate dead skin and leave the body emitting a radiant, reenergized glow and that new-baby smell.
Dr. Tony Maghsoudi saw plenty of strained backs and sore muscles as the chiropractor for the Polish Soccer League. Now, at the Naperville Rehab Clinic, he continues to specialize in treating sports injuries, though he also gets to trot out his training in acupuncture. He and his staff even offer lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling so clients know which foods contain important vitamins and which are just jars of rubber cement. It's all part of the center's prevention-based philosophy, which emphasizes treatments that stop injuries and pain before they even occur.
When devising Hands-of-Faith's service menu, owner Z. Faith Darby wanted to account for all the ailments a client might experience that would lead them to seek a massage. To that end, she made sure to cover the big three treatments: relaxation, therapeutic, and medical. The relaxation massage is a straightforward Swedish massage that entails light-to-medium pressure to combat stress and worry. The therapeutic massage is more specific?the therapist curates a session using deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques in order to relieve chronic pain and symptoms of injury. The medical massage is anatomically precise and patient-specific, and targets physician-prescribed ailments such as whiplash and sciatica. These, in addition to raindrop therapy and hot river rock massage, make the service menu comprehensive and able to accommodate clients with a wide assortment of complaints.
The healing doesn't end with massage, though. Z. Faith is also a certified hypnotherapist, and Hands-of-Faith offers hypnotherapy to unlock that box in the subconscious where bad habits dwell. They also offer reiki and Bellanina face-lifts, an anti-aging treatment that incorporate the tenets of acupressure to help tone the face and render it younger looking. Z. Faith sees healing as a social responsibility and so she dedicates her free time to volunteering at The Edwards Hospital Cancer Center in Naperville.
