Licensed massage therapist Ellen is trained in five types of massages, but she doesn't stick to a rigid template when performing them. Instead, she mixes modalities, often switching up styles in the middle of a session in order to accommodate a range of body types and ailments. Whereas Swedish massages sink clients into states of serenity, deep-tissue massages bestow firm kneads to evict tension and entrenched toxins.
Ornate doors and a bubbling tabletop fountain lend a warm, Tuscan feel to Estancia?s 3,200-square-foot space. The tranquility is furthered by the spa?s host of relaxing treatments, from soothing hot stone massages to hydrating facials that target rosacea-like redness. On the salon end, stylists bring about fashionable hairstyles with cuts, color, and extensions.
At Nature's Design, massage therapist Cindy Petrushkin only uses natural massage creams and oils to customize massages to each client's individual needs.

As he revealed in a 2011 issue of Fresno magazine, Jaber Audi first discovered alternative healing methodologies after injuring his back. Rather than risk the side effects associated with modern medication, he sought relief through various holistic therapies, including acupressure, craniosacral therapy, and aqua massage. Deeply impressed with the procedures? effectiveness at naturally relieving pain, he went on to learn their techniques and open his own health spa, Touch of Japan.
By balancing the mind, body, and spirit, Jaber and his resident massage therapist, Sandy, have led clients to health and the spa to two Best Day Spa titles from Central Valley?s People Choice Awards. Clients can stop in for a range of treatments?sometimes incorporated into a single session?including lymph drainage, shiatsu, and relaxing Swedish massages. To alleviate chronic headaches and muscular pain, the spa encourages clients to enroll in preventative maintenance every week or month, depending on how often they want to play hooky from work.
