Serenity Massage, Body & Beauty's licensed staff of specialized pamperers customizes their treatments within textured, landscape-bedecked rooms to ensure optimal relaxation. Treatments begin with an over-the-phone consultation to minimize in-office paperwork and test each client's potential as a radio jockey, so spa-goers can hurl themselves into luxury as soon as they enter Serenity's cozy, scenic halls. With the 60-minute massage, a seasoned muscle mender will chase stress away with the long, flowing strokes of the Swedish massage or dig tension out from its roots using deep-tissue techniques.
During 60-minutes of kneady bliss at Chimaera Massage, one of the studio's experienced therapists will soothe the worries from the nooks of muscles and the crooks of connective tissues. In a full-body Swedish massage, light- to medium-pressure kneading stimulates the lymphatic system, relieves physical tension, and melts stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. The deep-tissue massage delves beyond surface tension to ameliorate distraught muscles with direct pressure and friction on the muscle grain. Chimaera Massage's therapists allow customers to customize the sunflower, apricot, and sweet almond massage oils with healthful aromatics, including bergamot, chamomile, lavender, and the distilled fragrance of fruitful topsoil.
The Middle Path unties knots from tightened muscles, combining different therapies to pamper stressed-out clients with a twofold massage. The 90-minute treatment starts with a full hour of Swedish-style massage, during which the practitioner kneads out bodily tension using a technique inspired by the ancient practice of meticulously rolling meatballs. For the remaining 30 minutes, a trained, experienced therapist conducts energy-facilitation techniques, lavishing attention on specific muscle areas sore from overuse, sports, or break dancing on a floor of marbles. The session, designed to help relax the body, loosen stiff joints, and soothe the nervous system, leaves guests feeling rejuvenated from head to toe.
Within a private home studio, Achilles Healing Massage and Day Spa’s licensed massage therapist relaxes patrons and treats back pain with a range of different bodywork techniques. During deep-tissue massages, firm and targeted pressure chases pain from its musculature depths and helps alleviate chronic aches by loosening tense muscle tissue. With softer, gentler strokes, classic Swedish massages can shake up tepid circulation and thumb-wrestle stress into submission. After each 30- or 60-minute appointment, thoroughly calm clients return to the outside world with a new skip in their step, freeing them to return unworn pairs of pogo-stick sneakers.
Helmed by yoga expert Andrew Eppler and his team of experienced instructors, Ashtanga Yoga Studio affords everyone from beginners to seasoned yogis a diverse array of yoga classes. Students can learn Ashtanga's classical breathing techniques and movements in the Intro to Ashtanga class, or step up the intensity as they acquire the skills to breathe with the precision of an underwater opera performer in the Primary Series class. Hot Vinyasa flow is held in a room heated to 90 degrees Fahrenheit to help exercisers improve flexibility and sweat out excess pickle juice during a challenging sequence of flowing postures, and Yoga Therapeutics soothes aching bodies with gentle stretching. The studio's class schedule offers several classes every day of the week.
