Date nights or daytime getaways become all the more memorable when couples head to HandsonSpa. Here, licensed aestheticians and therapists treat pairs to chilled flutes of champagne and chocolate truffles before they undergo side-by-side massages and facials. The rest of their services—including manicures and pedicures—are just as relaxing and can be paired with a light lunch for a complete spa day, fulfilling the staff's mission to make their clients' lives more peaceful.
A combination of chiropractic adjustments, massages, and physical therapy helps patients find relief from both chronic and new pain. The staff also works preventatively, offering lifestyle counseling and nutritional advice that introduces more healthful foods to your diet.
Chi Spa’s more than 20 licensed massage therapists are experts in their craft and can easily pull massage techniques from Western and Eastern modalities and seamlessly integrate them into a single session designed to address their clients' problem areas. The therapists owe their versatility to their training in Thai massage at the Wat Po Buddhist Temple in Bangkok, Thailand. The look and feel of the distinctive Thai relaxation retreats followed them back to Chi Spa, which is decorated with elaborate woodcuts and statues imported from Thailand. The treatment rooms preserve a modern feel; some even have private showers in which guests can rinse off before or after their treatments. In addition to familiar modalities such as Swedish and hot stone, therapists can knead muscles with barefoot ashiatsu massage or the 200-year-old Thai Ceremony massage, originally intended to relax returning warriors who’d carried their horses home.

Point Pleasant Wellness Spa's highly trained staff, including two practitioners knighted as certified master pedicurists by the International Pedicure Association, performs medical-level treatments to cleanse and care for human hooves. Powered by thousands of atom-size socks and carpets, an electromagnetic device imbues the saline water of the aqua detox footbath with positive and negative charges. The treatment runs anywhere from 25–50 minutes, affording ample time for the body to oust toxins through the pores and into the surrounding H2O.
Mark Lohmann's interest in health began when he witnessed its absence. As a child, he saw family members struggle with debilitating disease, and he began to wonder about ways he could restore their health. When he grew older and hopped on a track to become a yacht chef, Lohmann explored nutrition and often massaged his own shoulders to cope with "the long grueling hours spent on [his] feet for some two decades." When his parents' ailing health called him home in 2003, Lohmann began formally training in bodywork—starting with Active Isolated Stretching—before opening Planet Massage in 2005.
Lohmann's team of more than 10 licensed massage therapists tends to patients with medically based bodywork, often combining multiple modalities and products. The muscle masons further coddle clients with foot massages, heat packs, and Biofreeze, a paraben-free gel designed to relieve pain and make portrait subjects sit still for up to 20 hours. Planet Massage's crew can be dispatched for mobile massage appointments, and members also lead classes and workshops that guide clients through basic kneading techniques.
