At Wat Po Thai Spa, a 2010 nominee for Best Day Spa by Best of LA, technicians bolster well-being with services that range from traditional Thai massage to skincare. The house-specialty Thai Combo fuses Thai massage, Swedish massage, and reflexology into an international amalgamation of relaxation similar to naptime at the UN. Thai massage harnesses compression, stretching, and rocking techniques to improve circulation of vital energy along the body's pathways, and Swedish massage encompasses gentle strokes such as gliding, kneading, and stretching to increase oxygen flow in the blood and forge full-body tension relief. Patrons walk away from massage sessions with relieved stress, allayed aches, increased internal alignment, and enough flexibility to fold bodies into an empty Pringles can at the first sign of danger.
Traditional Thai artwork brightens the dark-mahogany walls of Thiparpa Thai Massage in the light of chandeliers and flickering candles. From the floor of this flower-studded haven, therapists perform traditional Thai massages atop soft mattresses separated by opaque, glittering curtains. In their signature style, therapists use their bodies to move clients through positions that compress muscles, exercise joints, and mimic the poses of the therapist's childhood rag doll. Therapists can also incorporate Swedish massage and whiffs of aromatherapy. Thiparpa stays open until 9 p.m. daily, which provides patients ample time for a massage after work.
An Aveda Concept salon, Total Concern 2's staff brings close, personal attention to every salon and space service. Each haircut or color (cut $40+; color $95+) starts with a consultation to determine a treatment that not only looks flattering, but complements your personal style and air-guitar skills. Otherwise, clear your flesh-emoticon of pore-clogs and pie-fight residue with botanical ingredients during one of Total Concern 2's facials ($45+) before blissing out with a little professional massage therapy ($45+) that loosens muscles, flushes out toxins, and works out knots formed during vigorous sessions of puppeteering.
Body Techniques' more than 20 therapists, trainers, acupuncturists, and aestheticians work together to create a unique facility that's part spa, part fitness studio.
They tone bodies with a combination of yoga, Zumba, and boot camps that focus on strength and stretch.
They relieve the resulting soreness, along with general tension or chronic pain, with 18 different massage modalities and acupuncture. They round out the selection of services with skin treatments ranging from organic facials and oxygen facelifts to waxing treatments to remove unwanted hair, allowing guests to perfectly emulate their own wax sculpture.
At Karina Thai massage, an experienced massage practitioner relieves muscle tension and soothes backs with traditional Thai massage techniques. Aches disappear over the course of fully-clothed 60- or 90-minute massage sessions, which can be performed on individuals or couples.
The trained massage therapists of Nirvana Thai Massage assuage aches and cast away stress with deft kneads inspired by seven modalities combining Eastern and Western techniques. Their Thai aromatherapy massage hydrates the skin and releases tension with the help of essential oils, while the body-scrub massage whisks away dead skin cells and jump-starts the lymphatic system. Therapists also unblock knotted energy centers with reflexology sessions, applying pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to the padlocks attached to each of the body?s vital systems.
The airy notes of bamboo flutes and the soft rumblings of gongs from background Thai music add a soothing soundtrack to each soundproof, climate-controlled treatment room. After investigating each room?s clean linens, robes, and adjustable lighting, clients can wash away any lingering stress in the onsite showers.
The team at Luminescent Health Spa believes that massage helps heal the mind, body, and spirit. To that end, they employ a variety of modalities from deep tissue and vibrational healing to Hawaiian loomi loomi massage. Elsewhere, aestheticians busy themselves soothing clients with facials, body scrubs, and body wraps, treatments aimed at refreshing clients and making them glow brighter than a light bulb planted in the world's largest potato.
At Sukhothai Wellness Center, licensed massage therapists perform a variety of massages ranging from traditional Thai massage to Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities. Their services include the Sukhothai Signature massage, which fuses Thai and Shiatsu techniques with the soothing strokes of Swedish massage, and reflexology sessions, which utilize pressure points on the feet to treat organs and muscles located in other parts of the body. Providing a quiet, soothing retreat for clients is part of the center's mission, as is helping clients integrate massage into their regular routine, so that it feels as natural as breathing, blinking, or talking to the TV.
1976 was the United States' 200th birthday. It was the year the $2 bill was issued and the VHS was introduced. It was also the year that licensed acupuncturist and body mender Phil Caylor founded and instructed at one of the first massage schools in Santa Cruz. Now with more than 40 years of experience, Phil expertly slackens musculature with an ample repertoire of techniques.
Initial assessments of the body's overall health may segue into acupuncture to unblock energy flow or into the long, flowing strokes of Swedish massage to ease full-body tension. Whether releasing knots with firm deep-tissue techniques or investigating organ function with nutritional response testing, Phil complements his sessions with relaxation training to ensure wellness at home and pinky-lift training to prevent embarrassment at tea parties.
Vanity Skin Care's owner and chief aesthetician gifts women with a break from the world, and the chance to return to it feeling beautiful. She maintains a clean, peaceful spa, without a speck of dust to distract from her clients during treatments. There, she soothes skin with an array of facials and peels that reduce the appearance of sun spots, wrinkles, and acne. She also provides an array of waxing services to remove extra hair from faces and limbs where it could distract people while they are driving or turning cartwheels down the street.
The holistic practitioners at Narayan Wellness incorporate alternative health and wellness methods into everyday life by crafting custom treatment plans that address each client's individual needs. Clinical services use chiropractic and physical-therapy techniques to straighten spines and revive lame limbs, and massage therapists blend invigorating Eastern modalities such as shiatsu and Thai yoga massage with popular Western-style massages that may incorporate deep-tissue techniques or direction by John Ford. When they aren't nurturing physiques and teaching students during wellness classes and retreats, Narayan's experts work with athletes and sports teams to prevent injuries and improve performance, and help plan and design wellness facilities for businesses and rehab centers.
Kanda Thai Massage?s expert therapists expunge tension and soreness within a serene space. During the eponymous thai massage, practitioners guide clients into stretching poses while triggering acupressure points to release stress, which can only otherwise be achieved by removing the bees from inside one's top hat. The staff can also incorporate Swedish and deep-tissue techniques into sessions and add aromatherapy.
Liza Van Dine was 7 years old the first time someone asked her to help heal through the power of touch. Since then, she's sharpened her energy-healing skills, and supplemented her talent with certifications in various massage-therapy modalities. At California Holistic Massage, Liza offers an array of therapeutic massages, along with a healing bodywork discipline called TwoShotPress that she invented herself.
The massage therapists of Thai Peninsula LLC draw on rich and varied traditions to help improve health and muscle function. Thai massage, which employs passive stretching, forms the basis of a few different massages. For example, during alternative massages, massage therapists combine Thai and Swedish modalities. A choice of six essential oils, including lavender and green tea, helps customize the Thai aroma massage, and the Thai couples massage, like an octopus's sweatpants, soothes eight limbs at once. Thai massage, however, is far from the only service offered. Deep-tissue techniques and foot reflexology also appear on the menu. Of course, massage in general is the specialty here, but Thai Peninsula also offers an onsite boutique for those seeking fabrics and necklaces.
Before Aaron Harris ever rescued a sore back with massage, he dashed to the aid of others as a paramedic. Today, he applies his knowledge of kinesiology and physiology with a backdrop of soothing sounds rather than sirens to help his clients recover from injuries and battle chronic pain. To ensure top-notch treatments, he staffs his office with current students and alumni of the National Holistic Institute who also studied kinesiology, anatomy, and physiology. These trained therapists are skilled in massage modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, zen shiatsu, and Thai. And when they aren't kneading sinews, they perform holistic techniques such as energy work, aromatherapy, crystal healing, and reiki. They can also leave their office to mend muscles and mobilize joints on-location at events, such as a tin-man convention.
