Creative Body Therapies's Aileen Ferraro kneads, strokes, and pummels away aches and pains with a wide variety of stress-abating techniques. The therapeutic-massage treatment subjects muscle-borne maladies to an hour of customized Swedish and deep-tissue methods. Sink down into the plush massage table as nimble hands use long and gentle strokes to sweep away tension and intense kneading to untangle tight knots. In addition to relieving discomfort, each session can ease the mind and, like jogging up and down the theater aisles during a horror movie's scary parts, stimulate the flow of blood.
Founded in 2006 by plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah Pan, Esana Plastic Surgery Center and MedSpa was voted best medical spa by Connecticut Magazine in 2010 for its wide variety of aesthetic services, including facials, peels, laser skin treatment, and full cosmetic surgery. Evict pesky body bristles from your upper lip (a $525 value), chin (a $525 value), sideburns or cheeks (a $525 value), underarms (a $750 value), or traditional bikini line (a $975 value) with three laser hair-removal treatments. Relying on the cutting-edge technology of the Lumenis LightSheer Diode Laser System, the friendly and trained staff of skin smoothers zaps unwanted hair and removes it for long-lasting results. The safe, FDA-approved lasers emit specialized light to damage hair follicles, reducing or eliminating continued whisker growth while still inciting contented purring from clients. The nearly painless procedure should be repeated five to nine times for optimum results. Additional treatments are half off the menu price with the purchase of this deal.
A graduate of the Rolf Institute of Structural Integration, Rachel Felson helms New Haven Rolfing, where she performs the specialized service in an effort to release built-up tensions and adhesions in clients of varying ages and backgrounds. During Rolfing sessions, Felson manually loosens connective tissue, or fascia, by kneading the labyrinthine network with her fingers, hands, and elbows. After roughly one hour of the holistic bodywork, visitors may notice an improvement in their health, observing higher levels of elasticity in their tissue and a greater feeling of balance on tightrope commutes to work. Among its myriad benefits, Rolfing boasts the ability to improve individuals’ posture, decrease anxiety levels, and amplify energy for long-distance pogo-stick marathons.

For patients who still feel the jitters, the doctor offers oral-conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to take the edge off without going under.
