Relaxation Works owner Kristen Tammaro is a licensed massage therapist dedicated to combining specific types of massage and healing therapies to create individually tailored healing experiences. The whole-health massage merges therapeutic oils, hot stones, massage cups, rhythmic thai massage, and daily reminder calls to encourage flossing to create an experience that helps alleviate stress and heighten spiritual awareness. The 70-minute massage gives clients time to truly relax while heated massage tables and a soothing water fountain help ensure a soothed mind and allow clients to feel as if they are lying on a sunny beach without worrying about getting hit on by a cocky volleyball.
Healing Massage Therapy's staff remedies bodily maladies by drawing on orthopedic and medical massage training. Before each appointment, the team assesses the client to discover which massage style will be most beneficial. The studio's massage therapists draw on myofascial massage, trigger-point therapy, and neuromuscular techniques. Massage recipients stretch out on a heated hydraulic table, whose soft surface permeates bodies with soothing warmth, like a waterbed full of chicken-noodle soup, and can decompress spines into a more malleable state. Isolated stretching techniques then help to improve range of motion in woebegone joints. The staff kneads problem areas with surgical precision, hoping to decrease clients' long-term need for medical attention. After the massage, the muscle technicians share their findings and advice on general well being.
You can't help but feel tranquil at Melanie's Day Spa—and it's not just because a giant Buddha statue greats you in the calming violet waiting room. The treatments here focus largely on relaxation, from hot-stone and foot massages to more targeted deep-tissue and prenatal techniques.
But the treatment roster also creates more tangible results than stress relief, as evidenced by a lineup of facials that incorporate such anti-aging ingredients as seaweed, organic mud, and even plant stem cells. Clients can also opt for à la carte waxing services.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Standard UV-tanning booths are available ($15 value per session) along with Mystic spray tanning ($30 per session) for a light butterscotch topping. Advanced spa services, such as Hydro-Derma Fusion, sauna time, and LED facials provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
At Carriage House Salon & Spa, stylists beautify clients’ hair with haircuts and highlights and massage therapists ease aches with soothing heated stones. Aestheticians perform lavish spa manicures, moisturizing cuticles and finishing nails with OPI lacquers.
SpaRenity Day Spa's nail techs pamper and polish appendages during relaxing manicures and pedicures. During the classic manicure, a technician shapes nails and curbs boundary-crossing cuticles, leaving fingertips shapely and smooth. Nail specialists then massage a moisturizing cream into hands and apply a choice of traditional polish. Alternatively, a cured coat of Shellac gel polish can protect fingernails with a glossy, chip-free coat of armor for up to two weeks. Prior to the classic pedicure, clients ascend a cushioned throne to soak feet in a softening bath. After treating nails and cuticles, staffers exfoliate soles, knead tension out of arches and suspension bridges, and daub nail beds with polish. Dainty curtains separate the pedicure room from the salon quarters, sequestering patrons in a space with richly padded armchairs and soft, golden light.
