An avid weightlifter and yogi, nationally certified massage therapist Bryan C. Thomas draws on an intrinsic understanding of athleticism when treating chronic pain and injuries with his one-hour custom massages. Drawing from a menu of Swedish, deep-tissue, hot-stone, and sports massages, Bryan can tackle pain and aid relaxation in one- to two-hour sessions. His nimble fingers manipulate muscles and boost blood flow to improve the range of motion in stifled limbs and the range of dramatic expression in struggling actors.
The aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians at 9 Essentials Day Spa and Nail Care have one goal: to improve the appearance and wellbeing of their clients. In addition to classic OPI mani-pedis and full-body waxing, they also offer eyelash extensions, acrylic nail enhancements, and seven facials that can employ alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids, light therapy, or hydrating creams. These beauty gurus follow strict sanitation guidelines during each and every service they perform, ensuring cleanliness, safety, and an evident lack of chocolate-stained fingerprints.
After working as a massage therapist for years in South Carolina and Utah, Kelleigh Jones-Coles used her in-the-field experiences and training in reiki, acupressure, and medical massage to open Terasu Wellness Studio. Kelleigh pampers clients with services ranging from massages to facials to body wraps. Named after the Japanese word for "illuminate," the spa features candles whose flickering flames shine light as clients relax or recite haikus in pig Latin.
Since Victor Jacob received his massage license in 2000, he has undergone myriad life changes, including moving to Hilton Head and becoming a dad. At The Hideaway, he strives to create an air of serenity for clients undergoing similar transitions in their own lives. Custom Swedish or deep-tissue massages wring tension from muscles as noses luxuriate in herbal or aromatherapy scents. A licensed aesthetician, Jacob also wields med-spa technology—including a high frequency wand and a sonic cleansing brush—to revivify visages during facial treatments.
