There isn't much point in relaxing at a spa if the drive home is going to make you tense again. That's why South Florida Home Spa is completely mobile—their team journeys all over Fort Lauderdale to dole out soothing spa services and savory feasts. Massage therapists may travel to offices and administer 10-minute chair massages, or set up a massage table in a living room to perform customized, full-body therapy. They can even transform a couple's home into a romantic getaway, serving fresh fruit and champagne to pair with a soothing bubble bath before massaging couples side-by-side amid soft candlelight.
South Florida Home Spa also specializes in another form of therapy: food. Personal chefs step into home kitchens to cook multi-course feasts of such dishes as blackened salmon drizzled in a pineapple and cranberry alfredo. They'll even teach diners how to make the food for themselves so they don't have to subsist on pictures from the night as nourishment.
Licensed massage therapist Maryuri Velazquez––or Margie––began her career in the accounting field. Day in and day out, she suffered from debilitating migraine headaches, until a chance session with a massage therapist uncovered her innate passion for healing. Today, as a nine-year graduate of Educating Hands School of Massage, Margie relieves the tension of others with own custom bodywork.
Though Margie deftly tempers aches with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, her specialty is lymphatic massage. With a certification in Lypossage and the high-tech Lymphstar Pro, Margie administers manual and electronic stimulation to release muscle spasms caused by exercising too often, experiencing too much stress, and sitting still in a plastic bubble for 30 years and then suddenly playing both your guitars. Clients may also purchase Wellness Center's Pink Horizons skincare products, which are made from all-natural organic botanicals.

Rejuvenate Doctor's board-certified physicians help individuals not only treat the signs of aging but also prevent and even reverse them by focusing specifically on hormonal health. Following the idea that "we age because hormones decline," founder and medical director Dr. Tina Miranda and her med-spa staff strive to tailor anti-aging treatment plans that will stop that decline faster than you can say, "Stop declining, you stupid jerks!" The team uses complimentary consultations to devise a plan that may combine hormone-replacement therapy with nutrition counseling, exercise, and sleep techniques. As part of its restorative treatments, the team also works to reverse aging on the outside to help patients both feel and look younger. The staffers use cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Restylane, laser skin peels, and time machines to imbue even the most timeworn and wrinkle-riddled hides with youthful radiance.
The friendly, veteran staff at The Happy Human Center helps their guests discover fulfillment through wellness, facilitating a transformation of the mind, body, and spirit. Relaxing massages, reiki sessions, and foot reflexology treatments are just a handful of their methods to help clients unload stress, remedy aches, and reduce the efficacy of Tin Man impressions. Couples can take part in an instructional massage session, sending them out the door feeling both relaxed and empowered to remove future knots from the muscles of their partner. In addition to massage services, the skilled staff perform facials and body treatments that pamper and nourish the skin, as well as waxing services, which evict unwanted fuzz.
Although licensed massage therapist Merla Joseph tailors each session based on an initial consultation, she continues refining her approach throughout the entire appointment, adjusting pressure and technique based on how each client's body responds. This approach applies to every modality that Merla uses, including Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and reflexology massage. She can also enhance sessions with foot treatments, aromatherapy, or by showering clients in $100 bills. Beyond massage, Merla's experience extends to facials, as well as detoxification therapy comprising a steam treatment and an ionic footbath.
