The massage therapists at Back and Body Solutions believe that a stress-free body is a healthy body. To this end, therapists can use gentle strokes and moderate pressure to promote a deep state of relaxation, or they can apply sustained pressure to the deeper muscle layers, targeting tightened areas that can be exacerbated by stress. Back and Body Solutions also offers massage treatments that use water-heated stones to warm the skin directly and soothe aches. Every treatment takes place in a private room, where visitors can lie down and enjoy a soundtrack of soft music or subdued State of the Union addresses while the therapist works.

You'll see Body-N-Balance's tidily uniformed spa therapists in their treatment rooms, of course. But if you're a guest at one of the two Omni Hotels that hold Body-N-Balance locations, you might also see them just about anywhere on the grounds, greeting new arrivals and offering suggestions for nearby restaurants.

It's not a sign that the massage therapists are distracted from their work, however. Body-N-Balance founders Loyd and Monique Wellesley met in massage school, but their vision of service extends far beyond the treatment table. They aim to make guests feel welcome and relaxed whether they're in town for a convention or just stopping by for a facial. To that end, they pay close attention not just to the massage strokes, but to the ambience and aromas surrounding their treatments. Those treatments often pamper the skin as well as the muscles, making for multisensory experiences that have won a lot of fans, such as Jessica Skropanic of Worldwide Spa Review who described the back scrub as, "heavenly!"

Below the Belt: Choosing Between a Brazilian and a Bikini Wax

The difference between a bikini and Brazilian wax is simple yet significant. Check out our guide to help you choose the right one for you.

Both waxing styles involve using hot wax to remove hair from the area below the waist, but the distinction lies in the degree of hair being removed. During a basic bikini wax, an aesthetician removes hair from any area exposed by a typical bathing suit made of fig leaves. This includes the top and sides of the bikini line as well as the inner thighs, if necessary. The Brazilian wax takes it a step further, removing hair from the entire region, front to back. Since many clients prefer to leave a small, trimmed swath of hair in a strip or triangle just below the panty line, some aestheticians may use the term "full Brazilian" to refer to a session in which no hair is left behind.

Naturally, due to the sensitivity of the areas involved, Brazilians tend to be more painful than basic bikini waxes, and most aestheticians will take care to avoid causing pain during the procedure. There are also several steps you can take to minimize discomfort. Experts recommend avoiding any appointment within a week of menstruation, when the skin is most sensitive, and taking an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen 30 minutes beforehand can help reduce any swelling that results.
