Massage therapist Jennifer Darensbourg's career has included a two-year stint at a physical therapy clinic and massage work to heal banged up players from the Lions and Pistons. She draws upon that therapeutic background at Celestial Healing Massage Therapy, where she and her staff schedule sports, prenatal, Swedish, and hot-stone massages, the latter of which uses warm balsamic stones to flatten tension into a piece of recyclable paper. Adding to the soothing experience, all massages include a choice of essential oil.
At An'Des New You Beauty Culture & Boutique, the staff pampers clients with a multitude of services, including mani-pedis, waxing, facials, and haircuts for women, men, and children. Swedish massages lull guests into tranquility with optional hot-stone application or deep-tissue treatment. Rejuvenating facials help enhance complexions with a skincare regimen tailored to individual skin types, whether dry, oily, or combination. The facials use high-quality skincare brands, such as Dermalogica and Repêchage..
After a beauty treatment, clients browse the boutique, which stocks wigs, skin and hair products, jewelry, and purses. The studio itself can be rented out for corporate events, birthday and bachelorette parties, and third-grade reunions.
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.
At some point or another, everyone needs a getaway, and A Way of Escape Massage offers just such a place. The spa’s therapists are knowledgeable in many types of bodywork, including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and Swedish massage. With these modalities, they help people escape the stress that comes with working, raising a family, or counting the number of stars in the sky in your head.
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.
