Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
EMH Healthcare’s team of therapists and medical professionals began treating patients in 1904; in the ensuing century, their system of compassionate care steadily expanded to serve the greater Cleveland area. Today, that system includes Exhale, a day spa that sets its advanced medical treatments within a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Though its plush massage beds and warm, earth-toned decor seem far removed from a medical clinic, Exhale doesn’t forsake the medical credibility that has become synonymous with EMH Healthcare. State-licensed and board-certified therapists administer all spa services, which include pedicures, facials, and cosmetology treatments to cover up blemishes and exposed circuit wires.
Each person's pain is different, and the staff at Elements Therapeutic Massage
believe each massage should be, too. Every therapist here is skilled in multiple styles of massage, so they can easily blend multiple techniques such as deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger point to create a completely customized treatment. What's more, they also tailor the amount of pressure to suit the client's preferences. Level one, for example, is best for those who prefer a light, relaxing massage, while level four is better for those looking to work out serious muscle knots or to pick up some bread-kneading techniques they can use at home.
Although each massage therapist has his or her own technique, most have the same end goal: the well-being of the client. With Shannon at Body and Soul Massotherapy, clients should see massage as a tool of healing, whether they are recovering from injury, need to unwind from tension, or have been walking around with their elbows pointed outward all day. Shannon and her cohorts expunge stress with a range of modalities, including soothing relaxation to more-intense deep tissue.
