George Teramoto’s father, a carpenter, would often come home from work with aches and pains. As a kid, George would walk on his father’s back to relieve the tension; as an adult, he explored back rubs and other techniques. What began as a father-son bonding ritual eventually transformed into a career. Now a licensed massage practitioner with more than 13 years of experience, George heads his own studio, Southcenter Massage, which employs both male and female massage therapists.
With a two-pronged focus on healing and relaxation, he kneads physiques with a choice of six styles. He can relax his clients with soothing Swedish strokes or address chronic pains at their root with the more intense pressure of deep-tissue massage. During shiatsu massages, he uses his hands and elbows to balance clients’ energy flow. His foot reflexology sessions, meanwhile, use foot manipulation to resolve diverse problems, from achy backs to ugly shoes.
Uspa therapists and licensed massage therapists work to remove tension from ventral ends by guiding patients through a 60-minute relaxing regimen. Before the one-hour therapeutic aroma massage, therapists consult with patients to draft detailed back maps for treatments suited to specific needs. Back-pain whispering and an array of other techniques relieve tight muscles, improve circulation, and adorn bodies with title belts of bliss. In a stress-slaying baklava of elation, the massage is layered under a one-hour clarity essential facial. Using botanical antioxidants such as green tea, clay masks, bamboo, and other exfoliants, the facial is tailored to individual skin types and affinity for Fraser reruns. As bright faces blossom, patients' sensory switchboards are massaged and hands are pleasantly pampered. Serenza's clean studio brims with calming earth tones and potted plants, transporting patients to a time when salons spread across the grasslands and baboon butlers delivered fresh towels warmed by the sun.

Shari Courtier and Scott Carpenter run Three Tree Wellness Center, a place that is part spa, part classroom, and part bodywork-supplies store. The staff nurtures mind, body, and spirit with spa services such as massages, which can incorporate reiki energy work, and mud wraps, which draw toxins from the skin while equipping it to someday sprout an apple tree. Art-therapy classes put students in touch with their inner power animal, and continuing-education classes keep massage therapists abreast of body mechanics and best practices. The retail portion of the center, SNL Supplies, hawks wares such as essential oils, shower gels, and candles.
For Dr. Philip Kogler, chronic back pain has been transformative. Not only did it transform his spine—his malady became so severe that doctors had to fuse two of his vertebrae—it also transformed his career. Originally a dentist, he became a chiropractor to help others effectively manage their back pain.
Nowadays, Dr. Kogler’s Gonstead-style adjustments alleviate ailments such as back pain and headaches. To complement his chiropractic treatments, he prescribes corrective exercises that his clients can perform at home, as well as nutrition and lifestyle advice, such as never to drink and eat in the same millisecond. His associate, massage therapist David Studer, kneads clients’ backs in order to improve circulation and minimizing swelling.
Technicians trained in results-oriented treatments fill Skinperfect's service menu with effective beautifying services while wielding a number of upscale product lines.

If desired, sensitive skin can cozy up in the cooling embrace of topical anesthetic during the hair-removal procedure. Alternatively, the full set of lash extensions enhances flirtatious glances and coy Morse code blinks by darkening and thickening the lash line.
