Zen Massage’s friendly licensed therapists knead muscles back into doughy bliss with 80 minutes of connective strokes. Swedish massage is one of the most popular types of knead, stimulating circulation and reducing emotional and physical stress by melting tense muscles like the sun melts scoops of ice cream. Each massage is customized to patient preferences, so therapists can use light, medium, or firm pressure. Hot stones placed along stressed areas allow for the release of deeply buried tension, while aromatherapy uses blended essential oils to calm the senses. At the close of the massage, therapists wrap customers in hot towels, allowing the sultry heat to melt newly-plied muscles into non-hydrogenated muscle butter.
Two pain-reducing, stress-relieving massage techniques are offered with today's deal, each specifically aimed at different problems or pains and administered in a private room with mellow lighting and mellower music. The Swedish massage is a light-pressure treatment that uses long, flowing muscle strokes to soothe tension, relieve stress, and bring tranquility to body and mind. For muscle pain, joint aches, and general stiffness, the deep-tissue massage offers ample relief by stimulating muscles and encouraging blood circulation.

With so much to keep young eyes occupied, the atmosphere almost feels like that inside the house that Ruth built—Disneyland.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
The term Ayurveda is a compound of the Sanskrit words for "life" and "science," and its practice draws from an ancient and established tradition of keeping humans in harmony with the world around them. At Kerala Ayurveda, licensed practitioners opt for natural products and noninvasive procedures, instead of surgeries and cybernetic implants. Some of the traditional treatments offered include pouring a thin stream of warm natural oils onto the forehead to reduce stress, opening pores with steam baths, and refreshing the whole body with acupressure massage. They nurture both mind and body with various Ayurvedic therapies, including oil massages, poultices, steam baths, and relaxation techniques.
