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.
Skin tightens and muscles go lax at Orchid Beauty Day Spa, where aestheticians work to relax their clients while smoothing their skin. Swedish and deep-tissue massages accompany sauna sessions and sea-salt body scrubs to help clients unwind. And to best treat complexions, staffers analyze the skin before administering vitamin C, oxygen, and acne facials.
There are no scissors or strands of coloring foil at The Refresh Bar & Spa. Instead, the roar of blow-dryers reigns supreme. That?s because the hairstylists? only treatment is their signature blowout, which unfolds on posh white hairstyling chairs in the spa?s blowout bar. With regard to other services, the staff similarly places quantity beneath quality on their totem pole of priorities. For instance, licensed aestheticians brush away facial lines during the spa?s sole signature facial, and licensed massage therapists relax guests during the signature massage, which can include Swedish massage kneads, deep-tissue kneads, or both. The spa offers makeup services and has a sauna, ideal for detoxifying lounges or ice cream as short-lived as Danny Glover?s audition to play the elephant in Operation Dumbo Drop.
The pain sets in quickly??a wrench in the neck, a sore back, knotted shoulders. Or perhaps the tension is the culmination of years spent at a desk or performing one too many giraffe impressions. The best tonic for this kind of pain is often the skill set of a certified massage therapist. Certified Hands Massage Therapy sends soothing ripples through achy musculature with a dynamic array of massage modalities. The licensed massage therapists use light to moderate Swedish strokes, or access lower-layer muscles with the firm pressure of deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques. They can also employ sports massages to improve range of motion in athletes and range of emotion in actors who play them on TV.

In addition to chiropractic treatments, Empire Wellness also offers a range of massage services for both therapy and relaxation, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and sport massage, and can be combined with acupuncture to ensure full-body wellness.
