At Melody’s Massage studio, licensed massage therapists harness the therapeutic techniques of ancient Hawaiian healers during traditional lomi lomi massage sessions. Pain and stress head for the getaway car as long, gliding strokes ripple down backs, with practitioners delivering nurturing kneads with the aid of deft hands, elbows, and forearms. Two therapists team up for the tandem massage to jointly manipulate in balance the body's left and right sides for clients with extra muscle tension and problematic lumps of coal. Faux island getaways unfold in one of the studio’s private massage rooms, where warm incandescent lights ease tired eyes, cool sheets enfold bodies, and an active volcano quietly warms the therapist’s dinner.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas. Amid these cozy accents, guests may partake in a mélange of beautification services, ranging from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to waxing and makeup consultations. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
All About Massage and Wellness's licensed therapists unburden weary physiques and consciences with a slate of soothing rubdowns performed with eco-friendly products. Six kinds of massages and an online inventory of bath products and lotions help clients experience spa-grade treatments in their own bathtubs as well as the center's two locations. Four types of aromatherapy can compliment massages or infuse lotions with ingredients such as ylang-ylang or eucalyptus; these blends help unwind tense muscles or boost immune systems without having to disguise vitamins in a plate of orzo pasta.
Assign your face to the friendly sheath shepherds at Details Salon Spa for the corrective facial, a 60-minute customized landscaping that restores your visage to its natural vitality. Recline and unwind as an expert aesthetician analyzes each of the frontispiece's contours before carefully treating your pores.

A soothing hot-stone facial massage and scalp kneading will shake off lingering tensions. Afterward, the application of a fine-tuned custom mask––with refreshing ingredients that don't include Tupperware powder––seals the freshness and fitness of your face for prolonged radiance.

Licensed Acupuncturists Sydnie Bryant, Jessica Fritz, and Daniel Johnson, who hold masters degrees from the AOMA Graduate School of Integrative Medicine, balance the bodies and minds of their clients with deft acupuncture expertise. Invoking the ameliorative properties of the 5,000-year-old treatment, a knowledgeable needler will assess clients’ health by feeling nine pulsations at each wrist and observing the color and form of the face, the tongue, and the body before beginning the pin-cushioning process. During the one-hour session, guests are invited to relax as each gentle needle insertion spearheads stress and deflates tension, inducing a mellow mood that can help to alleviate ailments, improve immunity, increase fertility, and bend spoons.
With a commitment to cleanliness, Wholistic Acupuncture uses only sterilized, stainless-steel needles during the treatment, which are promptly donated to prematurely shedding hedgehogs after a single use.
