At Foot Spa's locations in Plano and Richardson, the precise application of controlled pressure figures into every holistic treatment. Reflexologists stir mint flavored salt into soaking tubs, immersing clients' feet in the infused water before applying a therapeutic massage to the feet, hands, and ears. Acupressure massages are similar in spirit to acupuncture, except therapists use their fingers to target specific points along the body that stimulate natural healing processes and save their needles for hunting wild balloon animals.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care. Today, she guides her staff members as they administer treatments in one of six private rooms that offer a peaceful cloud-like environment enhanced by Far East decor and actual clouds that managed to skulk into the spa.
Tanya Suntaxi, an ITEC certified reflexologist, is the owner of Happy Feet Healthy Body, a holistic wellness center. Though she treats the whole body, her main specialty lies in foot reflexology, a nerve-stimulating foot therapy that improves circulation and helps heal chronic pain and migraines. Aroma Cleanse Therapy is another relaxing service in her arsenal, in which she incorporates essential oils. Her quiet office is set up to help visitors feel relaxed as soon as they enter, with muted colors and a cushy massage table.
The massage therapists at Massage Wonders give their clients a much-needed respite from day-to-day stresses, both physical and mental. Massages range from soothing Swedish massages to deep-tissue or sports massages for more intense body work. Peppermint or eucalyptus aromatherapy can be added to any massage for additional stress relief.
The crunch of salt under foot. Soothing strains of spa music. The taste of salt on the lips. These sensations enrapture visitors to Salt Escape's halo-therapy chambers. Claiming accolades from CBS DFW and NBC DFW, experts have designed sterilized chambers to mimic the conditions of ancient salt caves once thought to grant healing properties. Between walls, floors, and ceilings coated in a layer of negative-ionized natural rock salt, Salt Escape works to create a spa environment filled with toys, café tables, and a stereo system to soothe adults and children more effectively than a night-light covered in honey. Halo-generators fill the air with controlled bursts of crushed salt, which generates a microclimate and assuages respiratory and skin conditions. To facilitate comfortable treatment sessions, staff members beckon visitors to recline in zero-gravity chairs, which cradle spines to neutralize the effects of gravity and recent rugby tournaments.
Luxury Sweet Escape Spa was founded by a licensed aesthetician and a licensed massage therapist. Chris and Julie combined their powers to carve out a space where folks can spruce up with beauty treatments or wind down with spa services. The facials include a little of both; they begin with a skin analysis and continue with a deep cleansing, extractions, and choice of aroma?pick from peppermint, cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, or citrus. The signature massages also include a choice of aroma, and incorporate techniques such as Lomi Lomi, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Thai table massage to make you as loose and relaxed as a stick-figure in a spy movie. Specialty add-ons, including hot lava shells or a toffee body salt scrub, only augment the indulgence.
