I specialize in deep/soft tissue massage therapy for those needing that massage with a firmer touch. I work with professional and non-profesional athletes that have chronic aches and pains from over worked to tight muscles, stress, tension and just everyday life aches and pains.
Licensed acupuncturist Julia Wu follows the ancient healing methods of Chinese medicine at Simple Health Acupuncture, seeking out the roots of the medical issue at hand and addressing it with natural means. She tailors her treatments to fit the needs of each patient, concocting a restorative recipe from services such as acupuncture, acupressure, and tui-na massage. Her treatments work to not only relieve pain and heal physical ailments, but also to promote improvements in energy and productivity. For example, her work may help a writer overcome a cramp in both his hand and his writing process as he works to complete the biography of his cat.
More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
When clients open the door to Daravadee Spa & Massage Therapy, the heady scents of lemongrass and jasmine come flowing past noses before eyes lock onto decorative Thai statues and delicate orchids. Within candlelit treatment rooms, staff members trained in ancient eastern healing techniques employ their skills to soothe muscle tension and purify complexions. Among the therapies offered at Daravadee, yoga-like Thai massage, herbal compresses of tamarind and kaffir leaves, and all-natural spa products set the center apart from other relaxation oases. But Daravadee’s most unique offering is guasa. A body-scrub treatment rooted in Chinese healing practices, guasa helps boost circulation and detoxify skin with the help of a wooden sloughing instrument. Each treatment is performed in a private room, ensuring privacy and comfort for clients and their shy backs.
