The stylists at Shear Madness are equally comfortable sprucing up hairstyles with cuts and color treatments, waxing away facial hair, and misting exteriors with airbrush tans. But unlike Icarus, who flew so close to the sun that his wings got all sweaty and gross, they know their limitations; they pass clients over to an onsite massage therapist for bodywork sessions, which range from 30 to 90 minutes. Ever accommodating, the staff welcomes walk-ins during most business hours and on Saturdays, and they also schedule appointments for after 5 p.m.
After more than 13 years in the massage business, Marta Vishy closed her practice to focus on being a mother to her newborn son. Now her decade-long hiatus has ended, and Marta has returned with a new wealth of life experience to draw from. In the comfort of a cozy room, guests can seek her expertise for flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation or request deep-tissue pressure or trigger-point therapy to relieve lower-layer aches.
Whether performing a Swedish massage or energy work, licensed massage therapist Mary Glimpse customizes every treatment to suit the client. No two massages at Healing Touch Massage and Wellness are exactly alike—Glimpse may supplement a Swedish massage with a stroke from her deep-tissue repertoire, or she might simply sprinkle the back muscles with a touch of paprika.
MassageLuXe provides a soothing spa environment dedicated solely to the art of the massage. Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal styles are all effective techniques for soothing sensitive soul sacks. The Swedish massage, the most popular type of massage, melts your muscles like beeswax, erases tension, improves blood flow, and awakens the lymphatic system. Opt for the deep-tissue massage and give your body a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct muscle grain pressure. The prenatal massage is ideal for kneading away the back pain that stems from carrying around a person on your person. All three options include a 15-minute session on the HydroLuxe dry water massage bed, where warm hydro jets push against the underside of a rubber bed, creating a calming massage experience without the annoyance of having to take off your gigantic T. Rex mascot costume.
The team of aestheticians and massage therapists at Port Salon & Day Spa mix and match elements from classic spa treatments to rev up relaxation levels. The spa offers a variety of massages which span from deep tissue to aromatic Swedish massages. During signature manicures and pedicures, nails soak in customized herbs before a paraffin treatment seals in moisture. Hydrotherapy sessions are held in Austrian moor mud or milk baths, which nourish the skin. After conducting a complimentary skin analysis, licensed aestheticians administer facials with ice-pack masks, noninvasive light therapy, or hot and cold basalt stones. For intensive moisturizing, clients can choose a collagen facial, pumice peel facial, or pumpkin peel facial which also helps to decrease fine lines. Personalized consultations also precede hair treatments, which can leave tresses newly colored or done up for special occasions.
Within DeJa'Vu Salon Spa and Boutique's walls, expert stylists and massage therapists treat guests to relaxing spa treatments and makeovers. They lead guests to spa chairs for manicures and pedicures, or lead them into serene, private rooms for customized massages that aim to unknot back muscles.
