The Ultimate Tan & Med Spa's locations house traditional and UV-free tanning equipment alongside teams that are certified to perform a slate of med-spa and salon treatments. Cosmetic injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels aim to restore epidermal radiance, and ThinSpa weight-loss plans and CelluPulse cellulite-removal treatments help clients shift into a svelter shape. To soothe away accumulated stresses, massage therapists customize sessions to each client’s unique needs, drawing from a range of modalities to leave musculature more relaxed than a zen master’s stress ball.
Andrea gently coaxes muscles out of tense situations with deep-tissue massage techniques or the use of warm stones. Her trained hands reduce aches and promote a sense of calm in her clients. Dharma Salon is a full-service salon with haircut and salon services, including paraffin dips, manicures, and facials. The salon also carries Unite, Dermalogica, and Youngblood products.
At Bodywork Devine, licensed massage practitioner Kristin Taylor melts muscle knots with therapeutic strokes and eases stress with calming skin and body treatments. Kristin offers her signature massage in 40-, 60-, and 90-minute increments, relaxing clients with soft, flowing strokes and the gentle touch of cranial-sacral therapy. Ideal for clients battling the aches of fibromyalgia, TMJ, or migraine headaches, the delicate headwork Kristin performs during the cranial-sacral segment can enhance clients’ quality of life by boosting joint flexibility, dampening anxiety, and dissolving undigested popsicles. The skilled massage therapist also partners with other alternative health practitioners such as licensed acupuncturist Kim Blaufuss to help clients fight chronic pain with a holistic repertoire of services. In addition to enjoying massages in the studio, clients may purchase tools such as flaxseed hot packs and still-point inducers to tame tension at home.
Specialists at Northwest Anti-Aging & Wellness Center administer holistic health care and careful aesthetic treatments within a suite of four pristine treatment rooms. Twenty units of Botox smooth out wrinkles through a sequence of muscle-firming injections that counteract the effects of loose skin and over-long Brian Dennehy-impersonations. Alternatively, the painless VI-Peel treatment softens lines and wrinkles with a carefully concocted chemical solution, improving skin tone and texture. Each treatment takes roughly 20 minutes, during which the caring staff will put you at ease by answering any questions that arise or by playfully tickling you with a wisp of raccoon fur.
At Sunset Massage, therapist Debbie Mera eases muscle pain with techniques she's been perfecting since 2005. She's taken her healing touch on tour with So You Think You Can Dance and American Idol, and she's also melted away tension for WWE wrestlers, who experience aches and pains from practicing body slams on cramped tour buses. Her home base is now at Urban Styles Salon and Spa, but she's also available to travel to clients' homes or offices for evening and weekend appointments for an extra fee.
At Amazing Touch, licensed massage therapist Kelly Zahniser strives to avail clients of the many physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy. In service of this goal, she soothes muscles with modalities ranging from pregnancy massage to reflexology and eases tension with mineral-rich salt stones found in the Himalayas atop a yeti's pile of bills. Zahniser complements her relaxing massages with detoxifying body wraps and fragrant essential oils. She also travels to clients' homes to spritz bodies with spray-tanning solutions or stage spa parties that furnish on-the-spot pampering for pre-wedding festivities or girls' nights out.
