At Nirvana Reflexology Spa, a team of certified reflexologists uses the ancient therapy to relieve ailments and reduce toxins. During reflexology treatments, pressure is applied to specific areas of the feet and hands that are believed to line up with many of the body's internal organs. The treatment, aside from inducing general feelings of relaxation and well-being, has been shown to positively impact everything from migraines and back pain to insomnia and anxiety. For additional soothing, the therapists also administer an herbal tea bath for the feet, since coffee can often leave toes jumpy, and they also work out tension in the neck and scalp, adjusting pressure to each client's comfort level.
The team at Bliss Reflexology blends natural and traditional holistic treatments to increase patients' circulation, strengthen their joints and muscles, and help them rehabilitate from injuries. During reflexology sessions, therapists apply pressure to the feet, hands, and ears in order to stimulate corresponding zones within the body, aiming to improve the health of the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems. Similarly, acupressure treatments help clients relax and boost their energy by applying physical pressure to trigger points along the body without resorting to flipping the bellybutton's emergency off switch.
The bodywork experts at Massage Spring Spa pride themselves on creating a calming environment for visitors. Amid earth-toned walls, they assess the levels of stress hiding in the shoulders and back before uncoiling knotted muscles via massages or harp renditions of Enya songs. They target specific points with acupressure therapy and employ hot stones to release emotional and physical tension. The aestheticians on staff similarly soothe the senses during facials tailored to the unique skincare needs of each client.
While some day spas spread themselves thin performing a multitude of services, Silver Swan sticks to its specialty?massage. This extra-sharp focus on relaxing, pain-relieving treatments ensures clients receive ample attention on sore spots. The massage therapists offer four treatment options, including classic Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage, and foot reflexology, which attempts to balance the body's energy more effectively than swallowing a scale.
One step into Timothy?s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy?s is known for.
But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here too, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts and aestheticians who apply permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy?or chi?from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa?s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body?s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.
