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.
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 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.
Staffed by a team of trained massage therapists who have experience working with Olympic athletes and the Detroit Lions, SowGood Pamper Lounge performs over ten different types of massage. During signature warm Swedish treatments, bodies are draped in chamomile-infused hot towels that help loosen muscles and melt away the ice that forms around the hearts of those working in customer support. Deep-tissue, sports, and hot- or cold-stone treatments can help relieve back pain or chronic aches. In addition to standard massage treatments, the staff also specializes in lypossage, a noninvasive alternative to liposuction, and offers personal training.
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.
A person who ascribes to a dynamist worldview sees the universe in terms of force or energy. At Dynamist Massage Therapy, dynamist healers increase the presence of positive, curative energy by practicing a range of ancient and modern massage techniques. Relaxation and Swedish-style massages diminish stress, and therapeutic massages address specific complaints with a custom blend of techniques. During hot-stone massages, warmth from heated rocks penetrates aching muscles. In contrast, cold-therapy massages activate sluggish nervous systems with chilled stones, ice packs, and readings from Ernest Shackleton's memoir. Therapists also specialize in reflexology, which activates pressure points in the hands and feet. Stress-reducing, traditional Japanese reiki healing techniques stimulate circulation and energy flow.
