In malls across South Florida, Massage Haven and My Happy Feet dole out doses of pain-relieving kneading for busy shoppers. Their signature treatment is the chair massage, which has the benefit of targeting common problem areas caused by desk jobs. But they also offer more specialized services such as foot massage, sports massage, and ice massage for a soothing panacea after injury. Thanks to the mobile nature of their massage chairs, the therapists can take their muscle-healing act on tour, and may be booked on-location at offices, homes, and party venues across the Tri-County Area.
At Elements Massage, it's OK to put your own needs first. In fact, it's encouraged: each of the center's holistic healers makes it their mission to provide care personalized to your specific needs. In order to find out what those needs are, the massage therapists listen closely to clients' descriptions of any problem areas or health conditions. Then, they set to work alleviating aches and pains with custom massage strokes.
The treatments at Elements Massage span a wide range of modalities to meet every massage need. If you're experiencing everyday stress, the therapists might suggest a light relaxation massage. Alternatively, if you're plagued by chronic pain, muscle knots, or tenderness from new wings sprouting on your shoulders, you might benefit from a deep-tissue or trigger-point massage.
Upon arrival at Myra & Company's multifaceted beauty emporium, guests are warmly greeted and ushered into either a tranquil treatment room or the state-of-the-art Pilates studio. Body-buffers can relax and unwind as an expert scrubber sweeps away dead skin cells during the 30-minute invigorating body scrub. Choose from one of seven specially scented scrubs, such as Sacred Earth, a mixture of vanilla, cinnamon, and shea butter, or Transcendent Sun, a holiday spice, cocoa butter, and superheated-ionized-hydrogen scrub. To loosen, strengthen, and lengthen the body, opt for a quintuplet of Pilates Equipment classes, an exercise system based on balance, strength, and flexibility. During each 60-minute class, students target a variety of muscle groups using a system of floor exercises and innovative Pilates equipment. Or, combat stress, aging, and the negative effects of the environment with a rejuvenating collagen and vitamin C facial. The 90-minute hydrating facial employs a bevy of antioxidants to stimulate cell growth and fight free radicals and beauty-ambushing wrinkle guerrillas.

Over the years she spent treating athletes and working alongside chiropractors, Patricia Delgado learned to appreciate the physically and mentally rejuvenating effects of massage therapy. She now shares her expertise with a wider range of clients, helping them live healthier lives free of chronic pain and discomfort. Instead of relying on invasive medical procedures and prescription medications, Patricia utilizes the power of human touch to both locate and relieve sources of withheld tension or deeply rooted injury. She accomplishes this by employing a range of specialized massage modalities, including everything from relaxing Swedish strokes and focused deep-tissue pressure to myofascial release and craniosacral therapy. In addition to increasing circulation and improving joint flexibility, these treatments can help heal soft tissue and leave muscles feeling more relaxed than the jelly beans that the President ceremonially pardons each Easter.
Under the direction of chief medical officer Dr. Hugo Romeu, the med spa steers patients toward their most confident selves with a range of treatments.

Licensed massage therapists use deft strokes to untangle knots during Swedish or deep-tissue sessions, leaving muscles as loose as a buttered doorknob. To fuel at-home pampering, the spa stocks their shelves with a full line of Derma Skin professional products.
