For more than 26 years, Hands on Therapies has been helping sore backs find reprieve under the skilled hands of therapists well versed in a variety of massage techniques. Clients can stop in for a soothing Swedish massage, spasm-conquering trigger-point therapy, or tension-melting hot-stone massage seven days a week, or book a couples massage to enjoy stress-abatement side by side with a friend, spouse, or hard-working stunt double. Beyond the therapeutic kneads, Hands on Therapies also brings balance to bodies with life-force regulating energy work, and offers hypnotherapy to help guests quit bad habits, overcome fears, and build confidence.
It came to her in a dream. Eileen Wolf was at a crossroads in her life when she had a vivid dream about a place of healing. She awoke realizing that it was her calling to create that place she dreamed about, and, thus, OmPowered Wellness was born. As a certified massage therapist, she's adept at several massage modalities that help ease tension and pain caused by stress or crawling to work, and her energy work helps to bring her clients into balance.
The therapists at Well Kneaded Massage recognize the importance of a balanced mind, body, and spirit, which is why they have devoted themselves to massage therapies, energy work, and healing touch treatments. They specialize in nine different types of massage, including Swedish, hot stone, deep- issue, and chakra balancing, during which a therapist combines the properties of deep-tissue massage, foot reflexology, and subtle energy work. They also offer additional harmonizing treatments, including beeswax ear candling and reflexology for the hands, feet, and ears.
The therapist at The Re-Enchanted Life specializes in gentle massage and energy work that reinvigorates both body and the mind. Take, for instance, the seven-step ultimate facial massage, a botanically-infused treatment that includes a micro-peel, hydration mask, sugar scrub, and a wholly relaxing hand and foot massage. Full-body massages are also available in a wide range of modalities: shiatsu, therapeutic, and cranio-sacral, to name a few. But no matter the treatment, each session is completely customized to suit the client's particular needs and goals.
Massage is the main focus at A Gathering Place, where professionals both teach beginners how to conduct massages and use their own skills to soothe clients' muscles. Staff members are skilled in a variety of massage modalities ranging from classic aromatherapy and hot-stone massages to the more unique shamanic healing, vibro-acoustic sound therapy, and a melting chocolate hot-stone massage.
Valentine's Day is typically a stressful time of booked restaurants, singing telegrams, and raccoon uprisings. Today’s Groupon will help you and your date stay loose and relaxed through it all: for $70, you get two one-hour Swedish massages and two half-hour candlelit Jacuzzi soaks at Body Options Massage and Day Spa (a $170 value). Located in Hazelwood's Village Square Shopping Center in North St. Louis County, Body Options' quiet, comfortable atmosphere and professional staff make it worth the short drive. While one person can use both sessions on themselves, you can also split this Groupon into one session for two people—making it an ideal couples gift for Valentine's Day, as well as an above-average Arbor Day gift. Call at least a day ahead to schedule your appointment.
