The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Jennifer Niesel talks about massage with the kind of reverence others might reserve for a priceless work of art. From the first stroke of any of her custom massages, it’s clear that practices what she preaches. Her artistry extends to specialty modalities such as her hot-stone massage, during which warm stones become extensions of her hands as they render muscles more malleable than a bar of gold Play-Doh.
Jennifer counts Swedish, prenatal, deep-tissue, and trigger-point massage among her other talents. She prides herself in her ability to educate and provide tools to clients to ensure that their muscles stay limber between visits to her studio.
The premise of Advanced Physical Medicine & Rehab is that it takes experts in many different fields to truly heal the human body. Chiropractic physicians, licensed massage therapists, physical therapists, and clinical psychologists work together to ensure patients' minds travel the same road to health their bodies do. The office has onsite x-ray, a full gym for performance training and physical therapy rehabilitation, and fully outfitted massage therapy rooms. Beyond chiropractic care, the doctors and therapists design custom treatment plans that are tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
Various wellness services are offered under the same roof at Wellocity Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Physical therapy places an emphasis on facilitating mobility by using specialized techniques to increase joints' range of motion, strengthen weakened muscles, or improve coordination and balance. Acupuncture sessions aim to restore a sense of balance by clearing energy-blocking elements, such as balloon animals clinging to clients' backs. The center even offers physician-supervised weight-loss programs, which use a combination of nutritional counseling and recommended exercise regimens to help individuals meet their goals.
The staff at Spa Vargas Wellness pampers bodies and minds with luxurious spa services that deploy the spa's own line of naturally sourced products. Moving to their new location, the team at the Pheasant Run Resort outfits clients with cozy robes and slippers before inviting them to relax in an aromatherapy waiting room, which is more fragrant than a dessert buffet at Strawberry Shortcake's house. Nimble hands can exfoliate skin with a sea-salt or mud scrub, and the spacious Moroccan-style Vichy shower rejuvenates skin during hydrotherapy treatments. The calm-inducing crew passes on kneading know-how to up-and-coming massage therapists and play-doh sculptors at Spa Vargas University.
Therapists at Allure Massage Spa treat aching backs and muscles to a host of massage modalities designed to relax bodies and administer therapeutic aid. During hot-stone sessions, a therapist makes rocks do jumping jacks to warm them up before placing the toasty stones on specific points connected to pent-up tension. Firm pressure helps a deep-tissue massage to untangle buried knots hidden in connective tissue, and Swedish massage employs long, flowing strokes to alleviate pain without an uncomfortable amount of force. Allure also offers specialty styles such as Thai, prenatal, and reiki therapies and allows pairs to practice sighing side by side during couples massages.
