When manning the helm at Skin Care & Body Work Day Spa, owner and licensed aesthetician Laura Hirsh draws from a wealth of wellness knowledge rooted in the study of herbology, aromatherapy, and alchemy. She emphasizes soothing, natural skincare remedies during spa services and the time she spends working with cancer patients to combat the damaging cosmetic effects of chemotherapy and other cancer-fighting medications on their skin. Hirsh relies on the Only YouRx custom-blended skincare line to perform her menu of skin treatments, as each product comes packed with plant extracts, natural minerals, and the youth-giving tears of an immortal child vampire. Three certified massage therapists practice 12 techniques including pregnancy massage, detox shiatsu, reiki and the signature fassage treatment, which combines full-body Swedish massage with a facial and a back-facial treatment. Before and after these indulgent services, clients can browse a gift boutique lined with skincare products, accessories, jewelry, and handbags from local artists.

Lily Buckner’s shift to the alternative healing arts was brought on by two life-changing experiences: living in Germany as an au pair and studying with a Peruvian shaman. These experiences gave her a love of the natural world and self-discovery, which she honors through her treatments. During massage-therapy sessions, for instance, she uses organic oils and a compassionate approach to help heal the body, mind, and spirit. Lily also aims to enhance clients’ natural beauty with facial treatments and eyelash extensions.

Arcadia Thai Spa's inviting, homey reception area matches its private treatment rooms. In both the lobby and treatment quarters, orchids and soft textiles create a natural sense of comfort. Whereas sunlight floods the reception area, dim light prevails in the treatment rooms, originating from votive candles and the incandescent eyes of live panthers. In these quiet rooms, beauty professionals perform Thai-style spa treatments.

Skincare treatments for the face primarily target conditions related to aging. The Hydra Medic acne treatment neutralizes bacteria and repairs lesions with potent botanical ingredients. Designed for older skin, the Vita Cura 5 treatment dissolves damaged skin tissues, uncovering fresh new skin with fewer age spots. During Thai massages, therapists use their hands, knees, legs, and feet to relieve clients' muscular pain and train for the Twister world championships.

Swedish vs. Deep-Tissue Massage: Finding the Right Way to Relax

Swedish and deep-tissue massage are two bodywork approaches that render very different benefits. Read our guide to choose the best option for you.

The relationship between deep-tissue and Swedish massage is much like that between DayQuil and NyQuil. Both are designed to help you feel better, but the one that makes the most sense depends on your individual needs. Here's what to expect from each of the two modalities:

Swedish massage combines four distinct motions?effleurage, petrissage, friction, and tapotement?to help relieve muscle tension and stimulate blood flow, thereby energizing the body and soothing the mind during a single relaxing session. The four phases are easy enough to distinguish. Effleurage refers to the smooth, gliding strokes that help relax soft tissues at the beginning of the treatment, followed by the squeezing, rolling, or kneading gestures of petrissage. Deep, circular motions make up the friction phase, in which layers of tissue rub against one another to boost circulation. Therapists conclude the massage with tapotement, a rapid cadence of percussive taps performed with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand.

Whereas Swedish massage focuses on relieving mental and physical tension, deep-tissue massage has more specific concerns. Due to stress and other factors, the layer of connective tissue that covers and interpenetrates the body's muscles and bones?the fascia?often tenses up, resulting in muscle knots and a painful buildup of lactic acid. Deep-tissue massage aims to warm up the fascia and release the accumulated toxins. To achieve this, the therapist?s fingers, thumbs, and elbows move along the body in slow, deliberate strokes, applying pressure to penetrate beyond superficial muscle layers. Although the intensity can produce some discomfort, deep-tissue massage should still be relaxing; the goal, after all, is to relieve the tension between muscles and their weird roommate, the skeleton.
