Licensed massage therapist Deborah Hunter's massages are so revitalizing, they might make you want to take her everywhere you go. That was especially true for one client, who loved her treatments so much that she flew her out to Tuscany to provide massages for her house guests. This effect might be due to the fact that her skills in the art of bodywork combine with a natural intuition, thanks to her social-work experience. She uses that dual knowledge to ease customers' aches and knead away stress during Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages. Fragrant aromatherapy oils bolster relaxation without attracting bees, and hot towels melt tension from muscles.
Get your hair ready for fish-teasing season with a haircut and style ($35+) from one of Salon Urbanity's innovative stylists, or artificially infuse a sun-kissed look into your 'do with full foil highlights ($70+). You can also freshen up for an upcoming passport photo with a microdermabrasion treatment ($120+). Salon Urbanity's skilled technician will peel away the years by exfoliating the top microlayer of facial skin, leaving it looking refreshed and young enough to earn double-profiles from airport security, and an indulgent French manicure ($22+) will spiff up sorry fingernails. And if your new career in plantain farming has made your muscles tense and tightened, opt for a relaxating relaxation massage ($60 for 60 minutes) and feel troubles melt away like a dropped ice-cream cone in the Sahara.

Filled with abundant plant life and natural light, Ascension Massage and Wellness, LLC radiates a feeling of zen before the therapists even get to work. And once they do, they expand even further on this sense of serenity by applying aromatherapy oils, hot stones, and flowing Swedish strokes. But the massages here aren't just about relaxation; the staff takes a medical approach with some of their modalities, gearing sessions to help relieve headaches, back pain, or muscular injuries. Clinical medical massages provide a deeper and more long-lasting relaxation of the musculature in order to address body issues and improve overall health.
