At Elysium Therapeutic Massage, a licensed massage therapist helps patients overcome stress and tension with customized treatments. The repertoire of modalities includes Swedish, deep-tissue, scalp, and prenatal techniques.
Serenity Now's owner and certified massage therapist Ruth Ann Fallon offers modalities of massage that range from relaxation to treating persistent pain. Many of her massage options are tailored to the needs of specific groups, such as athletes, teens, and mothers-to-be, each customizable with add-ons such as hot towels and hydrating skin treatments.
Quality of Life Massage & Wellness is a destination for those who suffer from issues such as chronic pain, anxiety, and fatigue. Licensed massage therapists loosen muscles with deep-tissue massage, swedish massage, and a slew of other modalities.
A seven-circuit labyrinth sounds like the setting for a Greek myth, but at Branford River Resort and Spa, it is a concrete place patrons visit to practice meditation. Relaxation is not reserved for the labyrinth, though?it pervades the spa and resort as a whole, helping to earn the establishment one of 2012?s Patch Readers? Choice awards. Visitors can bask in the healing milieu of its infrared sauna, lounge in the onsite gazebo, or unwind during diverse spa treatments.
The spa?s treatments encompass a vast array of facials, which can combat acne or aging, soothe with warm stones, or draw on the healing power of crystals. Massages range from traditional Swedish effleurage to the Shiradora indian head massage, which incorporates kneading upon the back and herbal oil conditioners, just like a cat clinic held in a soap shop. Body wraps ensconce physiques in materials from Dead Sea mud to mylar foil, and a complementary suite of salon services beautifies visitors with custom haircuts, highlights, and nail services.
To be a successful massage therapist, you don't necessarily have to have worked in the medical field for more than two decades, but it can't hurt. As a radiological technician for the more than 25 years, Pam Butler possesses a deep understanding of both the musculoskeletal system and ways to turn hospital gloves into balloon animals. Today, she is a board-certified massage therapist working with Studio B Brow Bar and Body Studio and an arsenal of modalities at her disposal. She uses indulgent treatments such as Swedish and hot-stone massages, as well as more-targeted techniques, such as deep-tissue and energy work, to help bring about a variety of benefits, both mental and physical.
Licensed aestheticians at Art of Aesthetics Skin Care tailor each skin care treatment to their clients' needs. They believe in diagnosing and preventing skin issues instead of finding a quick fix. They also enhance their custom facials with specialty mask treatments such as the Myoxy-Caviar mask to fight wrinkles, and the soothing rosacea treatment packed with green tea, chamomile, and licorice.
