The staff at Heavenly Healing Hands Massage Therapy strive to deliver the most pampering massage possible, corralling comforting indulgences such as soft-topped, heated massage tables or a warmed neck roll. The décor of this one-room oasis located in Beachwood is inspired by Georgia's picturesque Tybee Island, with sky-blue walls and sand-colored curtains that call to mind the relaxing seascape. Beside bowls overflowing with colorful seashells lie smooth stones that massage therapists often heats and incorporates into treatments to help loosen tension or keep suddenly stress-less bodies from floating away.
Morada Mueller followed a few different career paths before ending up at her true vocation: massage therapy. After stints in the worlds of business and higher education, she felt a need to help people on a deeper, more personal level. Massage presented itself as the answer, and Morada has never looked back.
Her clients are certainly grateful for this. They flock to Morada’s private Beachwood studio, where she soothes their aching bodies with gentle Swedish strokes. Light music sets the mood as Morada customizes her pressures to individual preferences, using warm oil or steamy chicken soup to aid her bodywork when necessary.
Inside the U.S. Bank Building sits Europa by Sasha Salon & Spa, bedecked in marble fixtures and vivid paintings that glow under soothing spa lighting. Aestheticians help faces slough off dead skin cells through exfoliation and imbue cheeks with moisture and the motivation to finally finish their novels. Massage therapists knead sore tissues, and expert colorists enhance mop tops with color treatments, allowing hair tones to match a new outfit or freshly reupholstered couches. Other services include manicures, formal updos, makeup applications, and sauna sessions.
Freshen up façades with a strawberry- or chocolate-infused facial, which delicately exfoliates epidermal layers while treating skin to flavors your taste buds take for granted. Choose a gentle waxing to root out unruly stubble, creating a soft, follicle-free bikini line, or pamper pinkies and other deserving digits with a chocolate mani-pedi. The nourishing nail treatment includes a rich cocoa scrub, skin-tenderizing paraffin treatment, and a gleaming coat of nail paint to help you outshine unpolished thumb-war opponents.
At Whole Essential 4 U Massage Studio, therapists excel in many different styles of massage, each of which can be augmented with indulgent add-ons and extras. While clients enjoy a relaxing Swedish massage, multiple masks can help tighten skin on the face or around the eyes. Aromatherapy is included with each type of massage, including deep tissue sessions and hot stone massages, which call upon the therapeutic properties of heat to help release endorphins and decrease cramping caused by arthritis. On top of in-studio treatments, the therapists can also take their massage tables on the road for events as well as for treatments administered at their clients' homes, hotels, offices, or panic rooms.
Some things remain unchanged during Alfredo’s International Salon’s 30 years of business, such as its location and the staff’s commitment to pleasing clients. But what continues to change is the list of services, which keep up-to-date with Japanese straightening treatments and hair extensions.
