For more than 26 years, Hands on Therapies has been helping sore backs find reprieve under the skilled hands of therapists well versed in a variety of massage techniques. Clients can stop in for a soothing Swedish massage, spasm-conquering trigger-point therapy, or tension-melting hot-stone massage seven days a week, or book a couples massage to enjoy stress-abatement side by side with a friend, spouse, or hard-working stunt double. Beyond the therapeutic kneads, Hands on Therapies also brings balance to bodies with life-force regulating energy work, and offers hypnotherapy to help guests quit bad habits, overcome fears, and build confidence.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Licensed massage therapists are fluent in an array of kneading modalities, allowing them to cater each table session to address each client's specific concerns. Among their repertoire of specialized treatments, the myofascial-release massage focuses relief on the body's connective tissues to improve flexibility and circulation. Alternatively, Swedish effleurage uses light to medium pressure applied in long, even strokes to melt away mind and muscle tension, and sports massages help runners, cyclists, and rodeo clowns enhance their overall performance.
