Seven therapists unite a collectively huge history of training in myriad modalities of massage therapy and intuitive bodywork, which allows them to tailor their services to each client's needs. Therapists sooth away stress with gentle Swedish techniques or promote healing by applying pressure to muscles, tendons, and fascia during deep-tissue massages. The team can augment these services with add-ons such as hot basalt stones, exfoliating body scrubs, aromatherapy, or dulcet renditions of ?the knee bones? connected to the thigh bone.?
Dispersed throughout a class studio and a spacious workout floor, World Gym Rochester's trainers usher guests of all ages and abilities toward physical health. Their certifications—granted from organizations such as NFPT, CrossFit, and Moms in Motion—bespeak experience in several fitness fields, just as the gym's class curriculum covers exercise styles from Zumba dances to martial arts. As the trainers emphasize realism during their personal sessions and group workouts, they eschew the gimmicks of pocket treadmill salesmen for a focus on achievable results.
Guests can cycle beneath the lightning bolt decor of the spin zone, watch television as they jog in the cardio area, or heft weights aboard strength machines on the fitness floor. Tanning and chiropractic amenities can also tend to physiques that aren't working through reps or posing as life-size Operation game boards in the childcare room.
Paule-Dominique Anneheim, a certified massage therapist and owner of Voil? La Familia, eases muscle pain with techniques customized to the needs of men, women, and infants. Since she was 17 years old and living in Marseille, Paule-Dominique has been working with both healthy and disabled youngsters. She went on to become a children?s massage instructor and expert on wooden-block ergonomics before moving to Tahiti to help open a clinic. The experienced massage therapist now brings gentle kneads and Swedish massage techniques to bear against tension and pain in private rooms speckled with colorful orchids. Oil infused with vitamin E steeps skin in moisture and prevents stretch marks, and the therapist's expertise in pediatric, prenatal, and postpartum massage allows her to soothe mothers stressed by pregnancy and little ones stressed by investigations into what the cow says.
Cocoon Urban Day Spa?s beauty technicians understand that a good waxing treatment has two things going for it: precision and speed. That?s why their Brazilian waxes typically take only 15 minutes while only leaving behind custom shapes and designs.

Led by founder Sarah Redmond, the team performs their personalized treatments in an their spa designed to make any urban chaos feel far away.
During his time as a certified massage therapist, Carey "Kari" Hassinger has developed his own style. He works deep into muscles, using Thai yoga?s stretching techniques and deep-tissue?s intense pressure to release tension and restore the body's balance and range of motion. Working out of Santa Clara, San Francisco and San Mateo, Kari treats one or two people at a time. His couples massages are interactive and involve teaching duos how to massage each other at home or massage the people in front of them at the symphony. Kari also travels to homes to perform outcall massage services.
