After spending 13 years closing business deals as a sales representative, Mari Brown decided to trade in handshakes and contracts for therapeutic strokes and aromatherapy oils. Mari?s new clients are thankful for her change of heart. The nationally certified massage therapist now spends her days tending to their aches and pains with relaxing bodywork treatments that employ custom-blended organic oils.
Inside the studio?s private treatment room, the sounds of Asian music join with the flicker of warm candlelight to foster an atmosphere that calms the senses. Mari?s various massage techniques do their part, as well, working to alleviate the stresses of workdays spent crouched over computers or hiding from bosses in cramped supply closets.
Guests to iMassage are greeted by a wall bearing the words "Relax…Renew…Relieve", hinting at the kneading specialists' ultimate goal as they work to alleviate aches with eight different massage modalities. Private treatment rooms glow with amber tones and soft lighting, helping to usher away outside cares as massage therapists melt stress with gentle Swedish massage or hot stones or target harder-to-reach tension with sports or deep-tissue styles. They also offer side-by-side massages for couples or mother-daughter duos, as well as chair massages to soothe busy bodies or those who are routinely sat on.
Tucked away in a calm countryside corner, Elite offers a full range of services in a unique antique-farmhouse setting. With this deal, clients will get three laser hair-reduction treatments (worth up to $450, depending on the area of the body). Using the gentle, fast, and completely safe SoftLight laser technology, a trained spa specialist mows underarm yards ($130), deforests lips and chins ($130), and beautifies bikini lines ($150) to leave the skin feeling as smooth and silky as a heavily buttered Slip 'n Slide. Laser hair-removal technology reduces follicle growth for a longer duration of time than waxing and other forms of fur harvesting, and it is largely pain-free.
Waves of Healing Wellness Boutique soothes the sore and stressed with spa services in a luxurious seaside setting. Clients can swathe external ids in a body wrap for an experience more soothing than 40 kitten hugs. Choose from several wrap flavors including a mineral salt scrub, power-recovery therapy, or nourishing sea-mud therapy, and then lie back and indulge in 90 minutes of human sushi impersonation.
Paula has been in private practice since 2000 and continues to advance her studies in Body Memory Recall after first studying the practice from its founder, Jonathan Tripodi. Drawing on multiple modalities of massage to unleash the body's own healing abilities, the therapy treats the whole body and is thought to address the symptoms and causes of problems such as joint and muscle dysfunction, headaches, scoliosis, stress, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, pelvic pain, asthma, and an unwillingness to try cottage cheese.
It's not hard to see what's important at Tranquility Day Spa. The goal behind each and every service also happens to be the first word in the business's name: tranquility. Waves of relaxation wash over clients as the staff administers facials that may include aromatherapy, LED light therapy, or a chocolate mask. Other soothing services include hot-stone therapy, Reiki, and foot-detox treatments.
