From 1997 to 2014, Mpower Bodywork was known as Massage America, a company that specialized in on-site massages for corporate clients. But over those 17 years, the business continually re-shaped itself, gradually evolving into a practice that offered much more than massage. Today, while almost ten different modalities?among them Swedish, craniosacral, Thai, and prenatal?still comprise its massage canon, the clinic's services include a variety of bodywork therapies, including acupuncture and chiropractic care, all aimed at helping clients function at their physical, mental, and spiritual best. Additional offerings such as nutrition counseling and yoga sessions help guests adopt and maintain a healthy lifestyle and develop a closer relationship with their toes, while aesthetic services like facials help improve skin health, which can lead to increased confidence.
From the first sip of lemon cucumber water to the final glide of a hot stone massage, clients at Island Spring Spa have one things in common: they truly relax. The staff is serious about creating a warm and tranquil space, and everything from the water to the massages, facials, and aesthetic services are designed to boost comfort and wellbeing. The four-layer facial, for one, is as enjoyable for clients as it is beneficial for their skin. It includes a peel and microdermabrasion, plus a custom mask and moisturizer to making skin glow. But the mind and the rest of the body aren't left out, either. Massages fight stress while laser hair removal treatments smooth skin.
Williamsburg's N4 Med Spa-Salon combines natural and medical-grade treatments to help clients reach their cosmetic goals. A board-certified physician oversees treatments featuring high-tech laser equipment, which nonsurgically removes tattoos, unwanted hair, and blemishes. For a more natural turn at rejuvenation, try the organic seaweed body wrap or the custom facial—tailored to smooth out clients' every wrinkle and line written in outdated cursive font. The beauty hot spot also offers mani-pedis, massages, and waxing, and the full-service Aveda concept salon nestled inside is an oasis for styling and coloring.
Strawberries, raspberries, chocolate, milk, and honey?all of these ingredients would be great in a sundae, but at Diva Spa, they're meant to nourish your skin. They're also just a few of the revitalizing secrets in the spa's many scrubs and wraps. Others incorporate sea salt for exfoliation, or cr?me-based European rose mud for moisture. The rest of the menu spans massages, facials, and high-tech weight-loss programs, such as treatments that use ultrasound instead of slowly-shrinking t-shirts to target unwanted fat.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in Therapeutic Healing Massage Center's treatment rooms allow river and city views to stream in, creating a tranquil environment for holistic bodywork. The licensed therapists are trained in a wide array of massage modalities, including aesthetic techniques that address cellulite and the signs of aging. Their Bioptron light-therapy sessions fight injuries and pain with sunshine-like energy that comes free of UV radiation or spontaneous eclipses.
The staff at DreamZ Beauty Salon combine their collective talents to enhance each client’s natural beauty from the top down. After sculpting fashionable haircuts, stylists reinvent strands’ natural shade or texture with stunning color treatments and an all-vegan keratin smoothing formula by Zerran. Aestheticians draw from all-organic products and 24 carat gold flakes to render complexions soft and blemish free, and use hard wax to remove body hair and leave bodies with skin that’s baby soft. The salon also balances its makeovers with spirit-reviving massages, treating full bodies to Swedish or aromatherapy-enhanced services, or with prenatal massages that help expecting mothers silence constant worries about college tuition costs or how much to tip the tooth fairy.
