One step into Timothy?s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy?s is known for.
But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here too, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts and aestheticians who apply permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy?or chi?from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa?s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body?s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.
Though it’s still enjoying the fresh feeling of being a new business, Lan Foot Spa offers the thousands-year-old practices of acupressure and reflexology. Founded on principles described in a document written between 2697 BC and 2596 BC, acupressure applies targeted pressure to specific points on the body. A similar treatment, reflexology taps into specific points on the feet. Each point on the feet corresponds to specific organs in the body; tips of the toes reflect the head, the balls of the feet reflect the heart, and the arches of the feet reflect the liver, the pancreas, and all tickle spots.
While some day spas spread themselves thin performing a multitude of services, Silver Swan sticks to its specialty?massage. This extra-sharp focus on relaxing, pain-relieving treatments ensures clients receive ample attention on sore spots. The massage therapists offer four treatment options, including classic Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage, and foot reflexology, which attempts to balance the body's energy more effectively than swallowing a scale.
Hydrate, soothe, and rejuvenate aren't just the three least-used settings on most blenders?they're also the functions of three of the facials at ReNew Therapeutic Massage. But as the wellness center's name suggests, its team is just as adept at relieving stress as they are at cleansing skin. Their massage offerings encompass the classic trifecta of Swedish, hot stone, and deep tissue, while also branching into funkier styles. They're deft with neck, back, and shoulder massages, for instance, and they also perform both pre- and post-natal massages.
