Give backs a wicking and limbs a tickling with a soothing massage that lasts for sixty golden minutes inside Nailphoria Day Spa’s stress-melting confines. Kick back and extend out, offering extremities to the graceful hands of a skilled muscle molder that will provide an informative consultation before and after kneading body dough. Opt for the long, soothing strokes of a Swedish massage, the focused, tension-blasting pressure of a deep-tissue massage, or the muscle-rejuvenating touch of a sports massage. A foot-reflexology massage transforms stiff soles into loose and limber shoe-fillers, similar to squirrels snoozing in a pair of fermented pumpkins.

Applied with light to medium pressure, Swedish massage stimulates nerve endings and boosts circulation with broad strokes in a gentle session that's well-suited to first-time massage recipients. Aching kernels of connective tissue unravel under an hour of intensive pressure during deep-tissue massage honed by turning terra-cotta statues into malleable mounds of play-doh. A gentle dry brushing begins the hot-stone massage's muscle and vertebrae therapy before warm oil and polished rocks plucked from the sun's cobblestone streets radiate healing heat waves into their blissful target.
As you might expect, students at Barefoot Movement aren’t required to bring footwear when they take part in up to 40 weekly yoga classes. Yoga classes range from vigorous to restorative variations, and also include sessions for pre- or postnatal moms, barefoot bodywork sessions, and training for prospective yoga teachers.
The Network Wellness Spa's experienced skincare specialists employ botanical extracts and natural products to refresh and exfoliate tired mugs. Aromatherapy scents such as jasmine, rose, and ylang-ylang swirl through the air during muscle-melting massages, facial steams, and pre-pedicure foot soaks, and aestheticians customize three kinds of facial to clean pores more effectively than a doll-size vacuum. The spa also caters to men with a shaving treatment complete with hot-towel service.
Jesse Blazo and Dan Eng underwent formal training at Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago, but their backgrounds stretch far beyond the Windy City. Jesse discovered traditional Thai styles of massage while teaching English in Thailand, and the catalyst for Dan’s appreciation for Chinese culture was his time at Harvard University, where he studied Chinese philosophy, culture, and language. Their interest developed into passion, leading them to study the ancient healing arts in depth.
Today, Jesse and Dan offer an array of services designed to holistically heal the body of all sorts of ailments. They perform acupuncture on guests of all ages, using slender, feather-light needles to unblock energy flow and treat stress, depression, and headaches. They also carry out astrology readings, detoxify bodies through qi nei zang and tui na massage, and prescribe Chinese herbal medicine.
As their name implies, at Angel Feet Reflexology, they specialize in one thing: reflexology. Their specialty treatment is a foot reflexology session that includes a complementary massage of the rest of the body. The treatment begins as clients dip their feet in a Japanese foot bath before a therapist begins to focus on the upper body including the head, face, and neck. They then turn their attention to the feet and legs, using the ancient art of reflexology to stimulate self-healing and energy flow. Sessions finish by focusing on the back, waist, and shoulders with acupressure massage or with a deep tissue treatment on a massage table.
