Jamar Williams was on his way to becoming an arena football player when a head injury sustained during a game temporarily paralyzed his legs. After turning to massage therapy for recovery and witnessing its healing properties, Williams decided to pursue a career in the field. After graduating with high honors from Everest College, he founded Accelerated Therapy, INC to help fellow athletes reap the benefits of massage, including boosting range of motion, reducing muscle injuries, and addressing back pain more effectively than agreeing to adopt a second spine. In addition to sports massage, he and his staff offer a wealth of other modalities such as pregnancy massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and reflexology.
The nationally-certified massage therapists at Serenity Wholistic Wellness have trained under chiropractors and nutritionists, but they also go the extra mile for client health by maintaining CPR/AED Heartsaver certifications. Inside the wellness center, they upgrade traditional massage modalities with hot and cold stones, stretching, cupping, aromatherapy, and rain-drop therapy, which soothes bodies better than laying outside during a thunderstorm. They also pamper feet with rose-petal foot soaks and warm brown-sugar foot scrubs.
For those who wish to look as good as they feel after a treatment, Serenity Wholistic Wellness hosts a boutique stocked with jewelry, custom oils and lotions, purses, and wallets.
The holistic practitioners of Affusions Therapeutic Body Spa model their treatments on Ayurveda, a set of health and well-being principles from ancient India. The staff develops integrative therapies to promote healing that take advantage of natural remedies in place of pharmaceuticals. The center's pain-management treatment for lower-back pain blends deep-tissue massage and stretching of the gluteus muscles with detoxifying seaweed therapy and acupressure massage. This approach typifies Affusions’ services, which range from spa therapies to custom massages. Specialty services such as ionic foot baths and sessions in the Steamy Wonder can help clients lose weight, shed toxins, and peel off old body paint.
Not content to practice only such familiar pain-relief techniques as deep-tissue and medical massage, the therapists at this house of healing also unleash polarity therapy, detox footbaths, and a meridian-based tapping method known as Emotional Freedom Technology, or EFT. Eight types of kneading spring from the fingers of the therapists, from the sustained pressure of myofascial release to the directional strokes of lymph drainage. Powered by a gentle electric current, ionic footbaths surround paws in polarity in an effort to collect negatively charged toxins and restore the body’s pH balance. Like people who decorate their lawns with thousands of needles to keep the grass healthy, EFT sessions take their inspiration from acupuncture. But instead of piercing energy points, therapists performing this treatment manipulate them manually, a method designed to combat anxiety, stress, and anger.
Master cosmetologist and salon owner Manisha Mehta takes pride in delivering a sweeping range of beauty and grooming services infused with luxurious touches. Full-length facials incorporate rich ingredients such as 24-karat gold or chocolate, and facial peels immerse visages in fruit and vegetable medleys without the need for surreptitious head dunks into a punch bowl. Issuing from Mehta's fervent interest in the healing and restorative powers of herbs, most full facials are accompanied by a custom aromatherapy blend. Alongside eyelash extensions and waxing are ancient Eastern grooming services, such as eyebrow threading, ear candling, mummification, and henna designs for hands and feet. Dark wood and leather furnishings, deep-maroon walls, and gilt-framed mirrors and paintings lend the space a feeling of an urban retreat.
