With treatments that range from deep-tissue massage to cellulite-reducing body wraps, Sacred Paradise Massage Therapy aims to keep clients looking and feeling their best. The studio's licensed massage therapists work out tension with strokes tailored to each client's needs, adding pampering details such as heated basalt stones or skin-softening paraffin treatments. Complimentary tea and water keep guests hydrated throughout visits.
Founded by Dr. Susan Stukes, a certified health coach, SevaLife is an oasis of wellness treatments designed to bring about physical and mental health. Bodies looking to rekindle relationships with minds will find yoga, pilates, and meditation classes, while those with inner alkaline batteries to recharge can look to reiki treatments and Pranic healing sessions. Dr. Stukes relies on her background as a dentist as she doles out advice about oral health, which is often linked to overall wellness and chronic conditions. The studio also offers cleansing programs.
Owner and founder Gilda Smith specializes in helping clients to heal through massage therapy by finding mental and physical balance. She also leads a team of other experienced therapists who specialize in a number of modalities including prenatal, sports, and myofascial therapy. Exhale's staff of massage therapists, with more than 10 years of experience, use their expertise to calm clients' tense sinews by incorporating a unique blend of various modalities in their massage techniques.
Massage therapist Melissa Clevenger knows the worth of a good massage. “I know how much I love getting massages,” she says on her website, and she appreciates how important it is “to offer that same gift to others.” In this spirit of healing and generosity, Melissa started her business with mobile chair massages and sofa shiatsu sessions, taking her gift to people wherever they were. Now, Melissa takes clients into her care at her permanent location, where Swedish and deep-tissue table massages pair with soothing music and aromatherapy. Her combination of intuitive strokes and firm pressure helps detoxify muscles and banish tension when clients need it most, even during after-hours weekday or weekend appointments.
The tall white Doric columns that flank the entrance to Diamond Salon and Spa give a not-so-subtle hint to the similarly stately interior. This Chestnut Hill establishment, flowing with natural light from the large, curved front windows, keeps an understated tan-and-cream color scheme, with lots of comfortable seating and a few leafy touches. Appealingly room, Diamond Salon and Spa provides a waiting area, a section dedicated to manicures and pedicures and a massage/waxing space, discretely tucked away behind doors. Diamond Salon carries Dermalogica Skincare products and the Youngblood mineral makeup line, which the salon uses exclusively for its facials and applications. Appointments are welcomed here seven days a week, with limited walk-in availability.
Degrees in chemistry, holistic spirituality, and theology decorate massage therapist Jonathan Nidock?s walls, complementing his 20 years of experience while alluding to his dual commitment to therapeutic bodywork and spiritual nurturing.
Jonathan pairs this commitment with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and physiology to administer relaxing massages that call upon modalities such as myofascial release and neuromuscular therapy. Though each maintains a specific focus, Jonathan?s massages all work to stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation, dissipate tension, and curb chronic aches caused by wearing Kick Me signs made of concrete. Ideal for addressing uncertainties in the organs and nervous system, Jonathan?s holistic foot-reflexology treatments promote well-being through the application of thumb pressure to specific points on the feet, which are thought to correspond to various organs in the body.
