Inside a tranquil massage emporium, BodySense's trained therapists help clients unwind both mentally and physically with a plethora of muscle-manipulation services. A one-hour massage session rewards hardworking torsos with a Swedish, sports, or deep-tissue treatment. The Swedish massage uses an array of flowing strokes to squish out underskin stress and untie flesh knots, transforming tense bodies into smooth, snuggly spirit satchels. A deep-tissue massage is recommended to release chronic tension and pain, and those with sports-related concerns can target troublesome areas with the sports massage, which delves deeply into muscles and connective tissue to help you rise up and crush the shot-putting competition.
Led by owner Gioia DeSimone, an American Massage Therapy Association member, the certified team of therapists at Rejuvenating Touch Massage Therapy focuses on deep-tissue and myofascial techniques to knead their clients' bodies towards healthier and less stressful lives. Massages tackle sports-related injuries, post-surgery rehabilitation, and everyday strain amid soft lighting, warm-toned walls, and eclectic decor including feathered masks. The body experts also work with clients so they can retrain their movements as well as become aware of all the systems and puppet strings that control their bodies' inner workings.
Unless you own a time machine, there will always be only one person out there just like you. That's why licensed massage therapist John Gavin tailors his bodywork to the needs of the individual. During a typical session, John may employ circulation-inducing Swedish strokes, or alleviate lower-layer muscle aches with focused deep-tissue pressure. Clients can also ramp up relaxation with a scalp massage or the diffused aromatic essences of strawberries, pineapples, and blackberries.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
In Irish legend, Tir na nOg is the land of eternal youth. Though not quite as otherworldly, Tirnanog Spa tries to capture some of that youthful effervescence with a bounty of spa services. Marine ingredients are the basis for many treatments such as seaweed facials, sea salt scrubs, and body wraps with re-mineralizing moor mud. Other treatments, meanwhile, take a more cutting-edge approach. Oxygen facials, for example, use pure oxygen to unclog pores, helping skin to breathe more easily and without wheezing, while microdermabrasion helps stimulate the skin's natural repair mechanisms, promoting better elasticity and improving tone.
Licensed massage therapist Dana Lynn O'Neill boasts not one but two certifications: one for massage therapy, and another for craniosacral therapy. It's no wonder then that she performs such a wide range of massages, from luxurious aromatherapy and hot-stone treatments to therapeutic deep-tissue and prenatal massage. Her signature craniosacral massage taps into the body's natural healing abilities with light, relaxing touches along the spine, neck, and "feel better now" button.
