Licensed acupuncture practitioners Joanna Lei Shelton and Molly McMichael gently stimulate acupuncture points with fine filiform needles in treatments targeted to each client's specific health concerns. Patrons relax on comfortable tables nestled in quiet, private rooms with individual temperature controls that keep patients comfortable and able to continue pranks on Arctic explorers. The session lasts between 60 and 90 minutes, depending on the client's health concerns, and the practitioner draws on extensive experience to tenderly insert the sterile, disposable needles, which stimulate trigger points. The acupuncturist communicates with the patient during the process to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible and cause only sensations of tingling, pressure, or light quilting.
Nestled inside Tr?usDell Salon & Spa, Est?tica Day Spa rejuvenates exteriors with facials, waxing, massages, and permanent-makeup services. The spa?s massage therapists delight the senses with therapeutic essential oils and relax aching muscles with Swedish massage, the long, fluid strokes of which were developed to calm hysteria during lingonberry shortages. Aestheticians oust fuzz from underarms and upper lips, and makeup specialists tint eyebrows, line eyelids, and shift the shades of lips with permanent pigmentation. For those who didn?t sleep in baths of rose milk until they were 18, the salon also treats weary and blemished skin to European facials, sugar scrubs, and glycolic peels.
The dedicated massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage knead stressed sinews with traditional Chinese massage strokes and nutrient-rich organic lotions. Ease into a 60- or 90-minute session that undulates between light pressure and deep-tissue kneadings through the use of chi-gong. This ancient Chinese approach focuses on energy, helping the body heal from illness and long naps inside the washing machine. Torso tamers use acupressure points, rubbing, and muscle tapping to relax the body and assist in restoring its natural balance. The treatment's unscented organic lotion soothes the skin and senses with hypoallergenic goodness in the form of jojoba, shea butter, sesame oils, sunflower, and chamomile.
