As the owner of Luxurious Essentials, Demetria understands the plight of busy professionals. She and her team of therapists do their best to work around hectic schedules with services ranging from a succinct 10-minute chair massage to an extravagant 90 minutes atop a warm massage table. Her unique style of Swedish massage utilizes traditional light strokes as well as deep stretching of the limbs to help to alleviate joint pain. Therapists lubricate each massage with a liberal application of olive oil, which soaks into skin without the potential allergens or glow-in-the-dark side effects found with many moisturizers.
The soothing scents of lavender and soft, earthy tones greet clients as they enter the spa. In private rooms, guests unwind from busy lives while listening to the strains of Asian music and ambient noise such as running water, chirping birds, and the angry protests from stress as therapists massage it away.
At Le Serenity Day Spa, the staff of trained muscle melters doles out massage treatments in modalities determined by client needs, be they anything from pain relief to general relaxation. Soft strokes highlight the Swedish massage, which focuses on tensed up tendons, and massage therapists employ deep-tissue treatments to target hidden knots and aches residing far within the musculature depths. For an alternative to dates spent at the movies, dinner, or the podiatrist’s office, massage therapists can treat couples to tandem treatments that incorporate both therapeutic and romantic aspects. In addition to bodywork, Le Serenity Day Spa also offers hand and food scrubs, mani-pedis, facials, and special spa packages that combine several pampering services.
The highly trained therapists at EB3 Therapeutic Massage improve range of motion in squeaky human hinges through specialized bodywork sessions that range from gentle prenatal massages to intense sports massages. In private rooms, muscle whisperers soothe chronic aches with the firm pressure of deep-tissue rubdowns and ease overall stress with the long, flowing strokes of the Swedish modality. Hot-stone massages call on the heat-retention powers of natural rocks to promote blood circulation and reduce tension. Aromatherapy enhances sessions and makes clients feel as though they're snuggled in a field of flowers and docile bumblebees.
You can't cage Image Studio 3's savvy aestheticians: not only do they perform an extensive selection of spa services in the confines of their studio, but they also travel to beautify their clients on location anywhere in Oakland County. During their signature waxing treatments, a deft wax tech pulls away unwanted hair from faces, chests, backs, and dorsal fins. For a more relaxing session, the beauty-giver can dish out one of eight facials or six types of massage.
Schooled in styles such as Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal, Natural Touch Massage's network of local massage therapists work out all manner of ache. The team soothes muscles and boosts flexibility during 30-, 60-, or 90-minute single or couples treatments. Situated throughout Detroit, the therapists' mobile services set up convenient sessions in homes, offices, or hotel rooms. They also host guests at the Natural Touch studio, where complementary muffins, bagels, tea, and juices await visitors before and after appointments. Along with massages, aestheticians beautify patrons with a slew of spa services such as facials, manicures, and foot scrubs, available for individual customers or large groups such as wedding parties or biker gangs that don’t feel as pretty as they used to.
At Loose Massage Therapy Plus, every massage—whether it's a Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, reflexology, pregnancy, or trigger-point massage—is a hot-stone massage. It's also an aromatherapy massage. That's because owner and certified massage therapist J'nai Porter augments each session with circulation-increasing hot stones and stress-reducing aromatherapy at no additional charge. Porter's generosity only improves her massage therapy's already ample benefits, which may include alleviated pain and deflated anxiety.
