At Red Rock Massage, certified massage therapists and skilled aestheticians deliver a range of relaxing spa treatments. Swedish massages reduce tightness and improve circulation with a combination of gliding, kneading, and friction strokes, and deep-tissue techniques dig into muscle tissue to excavate stress and fossilized car keys. With Swedish strokes and volcanic basalt rocks heated up to 120 degrees, hot-stone massages soothe the last shreds of stress from a long day of asking coworkers about the location of Carmen Sandiego. Staff members massage necks, heads, and shoulders and rub scalps with scented aromatherapy oils during a moisture-minded Wax and Relax treatment, which also washes away tension from hands and feet with a warm bath of paraffin wax.
Harrah Chiropractic & Center for Natural Medicine treats its patients holistically. That means the center's staff doesn't just help clients shed pounds with treatments such as laser therapy and injections. Under the guidance of licensed chiropractor Dr. Damon Coffman, they also provide lifestyle advice, including nutrition counseling and exercise blueprints. Patients can even sign up for a free website membership, which includes wellness tips from a monthly Healthy Living newsletter. It's all part of the center's "whole-person approach," which advocates treating the underlying causes of a patient's symptoms, not just the symptoms that get jammed up in their big toe.
After years of learning an array of healing techniques from physicians and fellow therapists, aesthetician and massage therapist Chellie Abernathy opened her own practice to address clients’ individual needs with soothing massages. Her wide range of interests, from cosmetology to surgical technology, gives Chellie a well-rounded view of the human body’s inner and outer workings, which helps her relate to a wide range of people, from professional athletes to professional couch surfers. Though she specializes in the more intense, deep-tissue style, Chellie also performs other modalities, including Swedish, hot stone, and acupressure.
Mystique Hair Salon's certified stylists anoint follicles with strand services in a newly remodeled salon, using L'Oréal Professionnel and Tigi products. After being escorted to a private styling station, strand specialists peruse hair stacks, examining texture, health, and knowledge of vice-presidential-hairdo history, allowing for a personalized styling experience. After a salutary shampooing, stylists well acquainted with contemporaneous tress trends shape manes into desired expression vehicles. Those opting for a deep conditioner can expect to see an improvement in hair's appearance and hydration, with the cut and conditioning treatment taking about one hour. A high-shine glaze treatment buffs up dull follicles, and the accompanying eyebrow wax frames peepers more delicately than eyeglasses crowned with live caterpillars. Patrons seeking a color boost should budget up to three hours for the cut, conditioning treatment, and all-over color, which adds dimension, shine, and an opportunity to teach toddlers that things change, but hair will never look like a toy car and therefore should not be pulled around the floor of the living room.
Plying her trade out of On Broadway Salon, Sami Mason mixes aromatic oils with her diverse arsenal of massage modalities. Her specialties range from Swedish massage bolstered by essential oils to reflexology treatments that aim to alleviate pain by stimulating nerve endings. Sami's hot-stone massages penetrate deeply into muscles with soothing heat that complements massage strokes. Her techniques melt away tension more quickly and effectively and with less mess than hot-meatball massages.
The massage therapists at Ambiance Massage Therapy work closely with each of their clients to best suit individual needs by applying any combination of four styles of massage. Swedish massage employs gentle, flowing strokes to ease aches while creating an all-over sense of relaxation, whereas sports and deep-tissue massages address frequent or persistent pain and can help decrease the likelihood of future injury.
