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.
If someone attacked a student of America's Best Defense Easton, they’d be in for a devastating surprise, probably in the form of a fist to the face or a knee to the groin. The gym’s black-belt instructors make sure students know how to defend themselves, offering a variety of programs that specialize in self-defense and fitness. They lead specialty krav maga classes that teach students the same fighting style used by Israeli Defense Forces, which focuses on subduing one or multiple attackers quickly and efficiently, whether they are unarmed or wielding weapons. Instructors also specialize in muay thai kickboxing, kids' karate, and adult martial-arts programs that blend styles such as karate, muay thai, grappling, and wrestling.
Healing Hands Massage?s scheduling book never has back-to-back appointments. So if someone has a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at 1 p.m. with licensed massage therapist Howard Dodd?who is also a certified personal trainer and lead instructor of the massage program at Lincoln Technical Institute?s Brockton Campus?there won?t be a Swedish massage at 2 p.m. with Dodd, however, appointments would be available to schedule with another licensed massage therapist. This scheduling approach allows the clients to enjoy their massage service without feeling rushed out the door. Adding to the comfort, the staff can customize its kneads to alleviate pain, tension, and ailments from common sports injuries, such as spraining a muscle or mistaking a bowling ball for a basketball and trying to dunk it.
Whatever Healing Hands Massage lacks in size, it makes up for with compassion. The owners bill the space as a "mom and pop" massage studio and muscle-management center, where therapists greet every client with warmth and a strategy for relief. Depending on their needs, clients can choose from Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massage or combine the modalities. The therapists will tend to problem areas with the appropriate techniques, addressing sore spots, knots and kinks, or injuries incurred on the field or while holding up the team's bus as the quarterback changed the tire. Healing Hands offers massages in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments.
Over the last 10 years, Skin Essentials Med Spa & Hair Salon owner Kelly Davis has prettified more than 1,000 faces with the SofTap permanent-makeup technique. She sidesteps the racket and pain of traditional tattoo-machine methods to gently apply the pigment with a hand tool, giving her absolute control to craft a subtle lip shape or a seductively arched brow. Guests can find similar attention to detail in the spa's repertoire of other beautifying services, from simple mani-pedis to advanced exfoliation peels that obscure signs of aging. Injections of Botox or Restylane keep skin surfaces as smooth as a pancake, and full-body scrubs and masks treat the whole physique to ensure that even your Achilles' heel embodies a beauty that belies its vulnerability.
