Shortly after earning his license to practice massage therapy, Todd DeKramer started working in a chiropractic clinic—an experience that would eventually lead to his specialization in pain management. Todd had been interested in the field since his days as a pitcher for Monmouth University, where he gained a firsthand understanding of athletic injuries and was introduced to some of the same sports-therapy treatments that he practices today.
As the therapist behind Rochester On-Site Massage, Todd travels to locations throughout the city to alleviate aches with onsite chair massages that begin with relaxing Swedish strokes and culminate in quick kneads. His couples massage classes teach pairs to solve their differences with relaxing strokes or firm—perhaps too firm—deep-tissue pressure.
“Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace’s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon’s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
Unlike other spas that jack-of-all-trade their way through life, offering all manners of curious aesthetic palliative, Pittsford Laser Spa does one thing well. Experienced specialists enlist low-level, noninvasive lasers to stave off or outright eliminate hair growth. During each session, a Candela GentleMax laser transports unwanted hair to a place it will never be seen again, such as the 1839 Whig Party National Convention. The calculated beams impair a follicle's ability to regenerate and cover large areas to help reduce the number of treatments needed to completely remove hair. A computer-controlled cooling device helps to prevent discomfort and knee-top luaus, and a lack of downtime lets patrons return to routines quickly.
Irondequoit Wellness Center’s specialists—Doctor of Chiropractic Jeff Failing, a psychotherapist, and two licensed massage therapists—each have their own medical expertise, which helps the team attack back pain from multiple angles. Traditional chiropractic techniques, such as decompression therapy and adjustments, complement the high-tech relief of cold-laser therapy. Alternatively, deep-tissue massages combine intense compression with trigger-point therapy to loosen muscles, and cooling and heating treatments alleviate back aches and help prepare the soup in your backpack for dinner.
Maxim Spa and Salon's stylists are trained and equipped to outfit noggins with plumage in a broad range of hues. Flaunt avian tendencies with a choice of fashion-colored feathers, or send a more subtle signal to your flock with natural colors that blend into your hair. Today's Groupon includes an initial appointment and one feather ($10 each for additional feathers), which is inserted via a beaded system. Like a poodle's luxuriant fur or a Cyclops's delicate eyelashes, the feathers are safe to wash, blow-dry, and curl.
