Half personal-training gym and half massage studio, Springbrook Wellness was founded on the belief that total wellness comes from equal parts pampering and perspiration. Owner Kristin Waligora often recommends that massage therapy and training sessions occur back to back to make the most of the increased range of motion and healing processes begun by a therapeutic or hot-stone treatment. Waligora customizes programs to meet each client's needs and goals, whether they're after sports training to improve their game or seeking to define their abs until they're usable as a musical instrument. The intimate workout facility overflows with training implements of every variety, including weight and resistance machines, medicine balls, hula hoops, barbells, dumbbells, and replica Liberty bells for those seeking to strengthen their understanding of democracy. The massage room's zen-like fountains whisper with the soothing trickle of water over stone, a sensory delight accompanied by the wafting scent of incense and a plush table that supports resting bodies.
Licensed massage therapist Johnny Lawrence subdues sore muscles with a blend of gentle and firm massage styles. Deep-tissue massages journey down into fascia to release the tension that causes knots, and Swedish massage silences yelping aches and pains with smooth, flowing strokes. Prenatal sessions accommodate the unique pains of expecting mothers, and Lawrence uses hot-stone massage to mollify aches with small, smooth rocks that could really be awesome dinosaur eggs.
At Touch of Sol, a licensed massage therapist relaxes mortal coils during massages and five different naturally derived body wraps. Inside a cozy room draped with a floral rug, the relaxation massage deploys nimble fingers over epidermal canvases, unfurling light to moderate pressure for overall stress relief. The therapeutic massage employs greater pressure to reach muscles deep beneath the skin’s surface, relieving tension and pain caused by somersaulting to and from work. Alternatively, clients may opt for a choice of five 75-minute body wraps. The Dead Sea mud formula is designed to decrease inflammation, and the sea-algae mud treatment is designed to purge toxins, stimulate circulation, and improve skin elasticity. After the mud concoction is slathered over the body, a layer of hot towels helps hides to soak up the vitamins while disguising them from lovelorn swamp things. A quick shower rinses clients clean before the therapist lavishes skin with lotion for extra hydration.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Scott Morris, the staff at Complete Clinics harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment does not require any recovery time.
Though it's connected to the KeyLime Cove Indoor Waterpark Resort, the calm, relaxing atmosphere within Paradise Mist Spa makes it feel miles away. The spa's decor transports guests to a beach in the tropics, with palm fronds in front of walls painted sky blue and sunset red. Eight treatment rooms lie beyond the waiting room with a team of licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians soothing visitors with services from body wraps to facials. The tropical theme even carries through to the spa’s products, which contain ingredients such as coconut milk and Fijian honey. Though Paradise Mist caters mostly to adults, it also offers services for children at the Enchanted Lagoon Kids’ Spa. Such features earned the relaxation haven a place on the Daily Herald’s 2012 Readers' Choice list.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
