Joe Linn wanted things to change; after dealing with the stress of working in a kitchen for 17 years, he'd grown weary of the daily grind. While he pondered his next move, he continued pursuing one of his favorite hobbies: massage. It only took a few more amateur bodywork sessions for the light to go on. With skilled hands and a drive to learn more, Joe realized he could turn his pastime into a full-fledged livelihood. The pieces fell into place soon after. Joe enrolled in a formal massage training program, studying the nuances of Swedish massage. That was back in 2002. More than a decade later, Joe puts these lessons into practice as a licensed massage therapist, soothing aches and pains during mysofascial release, prenatal massage, and deep-tissue work.
Though Maya's Massage Therapy’s team of licensed therapists is more than proficient in traditional treatments, such as hot-stone and pregnancy massage, its wheelhouse is therapeutic massage. The unusual massage modality pulls techniques from other styles, including deep-tissue, Swedish, and sports massage. This allows the therapist to fully customize therapeutic massages to accommodate clients’ needs, trouble spots, and whether they have one head or two. Sessions can also be bolstered with therapeutic-grade essential oils, which are meant to enhance the healing properties of the massage while also pleasing the olfactory system and moisturizing skin.
The spa's private treatment rooms put guests at ease, with subtle décor and soft lighting that evokes the comforts of home. But it's the spa’s soothing treatments that really make a difference in clients’ wellbeing. Reflexologists aim to eviscerate tension by honing in on specific pressure points in the hands and feet. When the back needs attention, massage therapists use Swedish and deep-tissue massages to gently knudge knots into loosening.
At Perfect Day Massage, certified muscle menders customize massages to each client’s desires and corporeal cues, enhancing treatments with aromatherapy and gliding hot stones. Sessions may cycle through a number of modalities, from the stress-relieving strokes and kneads of Swedish massage to the therapeutic techniques of deep tissue and reflexology. Clients can choose from a number of all-natural essential oils, each equipped with fragrant aromas, distinct cleansing, and curative properties that can help clear respiratory passages, soothe irritations, or wash away lingering bacteria and clingy personal assistants. Therapists then skate soothing hot stones across sore backs, softening taut tendons. Upon request, sessions can conclude with tips on easing everyday discomfort through simple life changes, such as drinking tea or cushioning insoles with heaps of cotton candy.
Royal Tan And Spa's staff bronzes bodies with modern tanning beds and services and offer a variety of spa services such as body wraps, massages, and facials. A series of Royal Gold sessions gently browns customers with 40 souped-up, full-body lamps. The futuristic bed of lights keeps clients cool with adjustable fans while evenly bronzing faces with four high-pressure facial-tanning lanterns and offering up to five gradients of an overall golden glow. Patrons may also choose Mystic Tan sessions held in a private room with the automated Mist Applicator, which evenly and gently gilds skin without exposing it to harmful UV rays. Mystic Tanning is available in three levels, so customers have the choice of looking as though they just returned from the beaches of the Bahamas or the sand dunes of Mars. The technicians can even apply custom airbrush tans at the spa or at clients' homes for a sunless solution that lasts up to 10 days.
Licensed massage therapist Honey Jo Senter delivers large helpings of relaxation to attention-starved muscles in a wide range of massage modalities. Lavish in the gentle motions of a relaxation massage, or opt for attention to subterranean muscle colonies with the deep-tissue massage. The opposite side of pregnant tummies can indulge in a soothing prenatal session to ease the side effects of motherhood's rigorous hazing rituals.

In addition to muscle kneading, the skilled masseuse cocoons customers in an all-natural body scrub, before removing the polish and their dead skin cells with soothing hot towels.
