Zen Massage’s friendly licensed therapists knead muscles back into doughy bliss with 80 minutes of connective strokes. Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of knead, stimulating circulation and reducing emotional and physical stress by melting tense muscles like the sun melts scoops of ice cream. Each massage is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure. Hot stones placed along stressed areas allow for the release of deeply buried tension, while aromatherapy uses blended essential oils to calm the senses. At the close of the massage, therapists wrap customers in hot towels, allowing the sultry heat to melt newly-plied muscles into non-hydrogenated muscle butter.

The therapists at WholeBody Therapeutic Massage can certainly help you relax; they're adept at the soothing strokes of Swedish massage, which they refer to as De-Stress Relaxation Therapy. However, they also offer many more styles of massage so that clients can reap the clinical benefits of more therapeutic types of treatment. Neuromuscular massage, for example can help alleviate chronic pain, while postpartum massage can help new mothers bounce back after giving birth by c-section. Scalp and facial massage, meanwhile, help to relieve migraines and boost circulation to keep skin looking young, and geriatric massage helps seniors retain range of motion and improve balance, and can be administered while they're lying down or sitting up.

At Crystal Skin Care, skin need not travel far from its skeleton to indulge in European-style pampering. That’s because the center’s knowledgeable aestheticians import FDA-approved French and Swiss products that they regularly use in an array of treatments. Their menu of services restores youthful allure to skin with custom facial packages, which can incorporate skin-lifting ultrasound care and light therapy that repairs damaged skin. Other treatment regimens include microdermabrasion that removes dead skin cells and reduces fine lines, as well as rubber acne masks that close pores and help clients bounce back to their feet if they ever fall on their face. Crystal Skin Care’s team also contours bodies with its 3MAX system, which reduces the appearance of cellulite and tightens skin using sound waves and thermal energy.
Three is the magic number at BodyWork Boutique, where a trio of therapists relieves stress and tension with three massage modalities. The smooth, rhythmic strokes of their Swedish massages stimulate blood and lymph flow to reduce muscle soreness and improve overall health. Deep-tissue treatments focus on lower layers of muscles, targeting deep-seated adhesions with firm pressures. The therapists’ third specialty, hot-stone massage, is something of a compromise between the other two. The massage’s heated stones melt away aches as they radiate warmth, reminding the body of comforts it formerly knew in its pre-hatched state.
