Jody Tulloch and her team of massage therapists address tension on all fronts with massage therapy and invigorating spa services. Clients recline across heated tables that are cushioned by layers of padding as a therapist gently relaxes stiff spines, using coconut oil and grapeseed oil to glide their trained hands over areas of tension and harnessing essential oils to boost relaxation ease tenderness. During hot-stone massages, toasted basalt river rocks send heat deep into muscles, allowing tendons to warm up their vocal cords and quietly yodel. For those with TMJ, headaches, and sinus problems, Tulloch herself uses specialized techniques to ease the pain of these stubborn ailments. Body scrubs soften skin while infusing it with scents such as raspberry champagne or chocolate, and airbrush spray-tanning sessions tint bodies with a summery hue. Once clients emerge peaceful and relaxed from their private treatment rooms, they can prolong the experience by purchasing custom-blended essential oils to take home.
Amazing Hands translates the complex body language of its clients with a diverse selection of massage styles and techniques expertly deployed to suit each body’s aches and tensions. At each location, a team of licensed massage therapists harnesses eastern and western techniques to oust muscle tension and detoxify tendons as clients relax on heated tables. Therapists specialize in helping to heal shoulder, knee, and back injuries with a combination of invigorating massage strokes and deep-tissue pressure, which can also help break up scar tissue. They use up to nine essential oils to stoke simultaneous mind and body relaxation, much like practicing yoga or sharing a hammock with a hypnotist.
Fully intending to pursue a career in physical therapy, Jeremy Miracle began to study various massage modalities as a means to an end. He realized quickly, however, that he needn't go any further—he had discovered his passion. Believing in massage's therapeutic benefits and its ability to cultivate a pain-free lifestyle, Miracle founded Nautical Massage.
Instead of asking clients to decide on one modality for the entire treatment, Jeremy begins every session by asking them to describe their discomfort, expectations, and Twister-playing habits. Based on this information, he administers a completely custom mélange of modalities that can include salutary deep-tissue work, relaxing Swedish techniques, and neuromuscular therapy. He also welcomes feedback throughout the entire session, constantly altering his game plan to accommodate each client's unique needs.
Surrounded by calming, neutral-toned walls, the treatment room gently reverberates the sounds of soft piano music. Clients can also bring along their own music or band of singing whales if it will help them to fall into a relaxed stupor more easily.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
As a doctor of Oriental medicine, Lisa Maharajh brings holistic and drug-free therapies to her patients. But in addition to the acupuncture and homeopathic remedies she performs in her private practice, at Trinity Laser Like Lipo, she performs noninvasive slimming treatments. By harnessing the power of LED light and studying her clients' metabolisms, she is able to help them shrink their physiques without surgery or trips through a hot dryer. Sessions on the whole-body-vibration platform bolster downsizing efforts by stimulating muscle contractions and improving lymphatic drainage.

Meanwhile, massage therapists pamper clients with relaxing, therapeutic sessions, employing Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques.
