Inside of A Touch of Inspiration Wellness, Inc, licensed therapists use imported products and diverse massage skills to placate the weary cries of both body and mind. Sports, trigger-point, and Swedish massages all eradicate muscle tension and soreness with targeted strokes. Similarly, body wraps coat surfaces in rich, aromatic oils designed to clear away toxins and transport the mind to a deserted beach populated by butterflies and infinity popsicles. Exclusively for established clients and spa parties, the staff also offers mobile massage sessions complete with soothing water fountains and scented candles for an authentic spa-like experience.
Gigi Mompremier studied massage therapy at Florida Career College, but she went beyond the course requirements and took prenatal massage classes as well. Now a licensed massage therapist and member of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals, Gigi eases aches with modalities such as Swedish, hot stone, and sports. She also offers deep muscle therapy, which was invented by Freud.
The veteran staff at The Happy Human Center facilitates a transformation of guests' minds, bodies, and spirits. Relaxing massages, reiki sessions, and reflexology treatments are just a handful of the methods here that 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 their partners' muscles. In addition to massages, the skilled staff performs facials and body treatments —which pamper and nourish the skin with salts, essential oils, or herbs —and waxing services that evict unwanted fuzz.
Under the leadership of spa president Sandra Vascones, the corps of therapists and beauticians at Doors to Heaven keep clients looking their best with aesthetic skills that they regularly brush up in continuing education classes. Body-buffing services include waxing and cavitation, which helps patrons shed pounds by dissolving fat. Those looking to unwind can opt for massage, which deploys modalities as Swedish massage and deep tissue massage to dissolve stress that has accumulated in the body after too many nights spent shouting at nearby owls to be quiet.
Mark Lohmann began formally training in bodywork?starting with Active Isolated Stretching?before opening Planet Massage on Las Olas Boulevard in 2005.
After almost a decade at that location, Planet Massage relocated to a historical home in the SOLO district that has more than three times the space of the original location. But the ample space isn't the only upgrade; Planet Massage's new urban oasis is even more equipped to relax clients with its lush outdoor bamboo and mango gardens and free parking. Plus, the house is located on a tree-lined neighborhood street, blocks from the beach and within view of the Downtown skyline and any monsters trying to destroy it. All of this has not gone unnoticed by customers; TripAdvisor awarded Planet Massage with the Certificate of Excellence in 2014.
The new spa still soothes bodies with medically based bodywork that often combines multiple modalities and products, as well as with foot massages, heat packs, and pain-relieving Biofreeze treatments. But it also has added a variety of new pampering treatments to take place in the new treatment rooms.
