Seven days a week, the therapists at May's Foot Reflexology massage specific points on clients' feet, stimulating their nervous systems to boost overall health. The treatment can help the body recover from strain and stress, improve sleep quality, and even prevent issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and a resurfacing childhood fear of "This Little Piggy." For female clients, the therapists include a free upgrade to massage lotion infused with shea butter, jojoba oil, and other skin-softening ingredients.
Through teamwork, skin, hair, and nails all get a chance at a new look at J. Michaels Salon and Day Spa. Stylists play offense to render haircuts, dye tresses, and condition locks to achieve the best-looking 'dos possible. Aestheticians show why they are the stalwart defenses of cosmetology; they wax fuzz, administer spray tans, and treat complexions to thorough, relaxing facials. Nail technicians do their part by gussying up all 20 digits, and massage therapists take care of any residual stress by kneading muscles or pretending they are Ringo Starr and your back is a brand-new snare drum?Ringo is a gentle drummer.
At Ayurveda & Massage Therapy Clinic, certified massage therapist Danae Delaney employs Ayurvedic techniques to correct bodily and mental imbalances. For instance, during a typical treatment, Delaney might mollycoddle the body with a detoxifying and moisturizing Abhyanga massage before calming the mind with the takradhara technique of pouring buttermilk on the forehead. For more extensive balancing or in case they want to save the buttermilk for their cereal, patients can schedule a three-, five-, or seven-day cleanse that features a steady dose of herbs, yoga, and body treatments.
Organic jasmine, rose, or lavender oils can be found at Massage Dynasty, relaxing clients before the massage even begins. Inside the studio's wine-colored walls, therapists spread light layers of these oils over the body, letting them court the senses while administering Swedish, deep-tissue, or shiatsu massages. Massage therapists further ease tension by adding hot stones, paraffin baths, or sea-salt foot scrubs.
The team at Sunny's Perfection specializes in massage therapy, rendering classics such as Swedish and deep-tissue massage.
