Licensed massage therapist Lisa Ambuehl believes too many people rely on medication to get rid of pain. With multiple massage modalities at her disposal, she aims to help clients kick pills to the curb by increasing blood circulation and releasing entrenched toxins. Strokes modulate between gentle and flowing to firm, deep-tissue kneading—both of which can help minds forget stress triggers without erasing video game cheat codes.
Inside this relaxing oasis, a team of beauty experts pampers clients from head to toe with invigorating treatments for the skin, body, and hair. Aestheticians tailor facials to counter skin-specific woes, keeping faces smooth with add-ons such as enzyme masks, glycolic peels, or waxing. During massage sessions, therapists soothe muscle aches with Swedish, sports, or four-handed massage therapy, which enlists the help of either two therapists or one well-trained dog. Split ends hit the floor in the salon, where talented stylists turn out freshly cut, colored, and styled coifs. Beyond these three pillars of beauty, Cottage Spa also tends to nails with a coat of vibrant polish or long-lasting gel.
From within salon-cum-spa Studio 12, licensed massage therapist Kimberly Collins-Davis makes it her business to deliver rest and relaxation to all. However, her clients have a whole host of different obstacles standing in their way, so she capably employs seven massage modalities, tailoring each treatment to her clients' needs. She rounds out her soft tissue work with services focused on the body's largest organ, the skin. She scrubs, wraps, and rejuvenates dermises with everything from coffee to brown sugar, leaving her clients feeling better and smelling fresh baked.
Licensed massage therapist Carey Hardison lulls her clients into serene trances with therapeutic Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages. Her treatments work to simultaneously minimize stress and address physical injuries by aiding circulation and increasing flexibility. Carey can also bring her expertise to her clients at businesses and events, where she can offer calming chair massages to alleviate pain for stiff shoulders.
A Touch of a Feather Day Spa owner Connie has loved helping people look and feel their best since she was a child. Today, guided by a focus on her clients' whole experience, she pours that passion into the diverse array of facials, massage, and nailcare services she performs. In an effort to continually expand her abilities, Connie recently added face-lifts and anticellulite treatments to her skill set.
Connie's team lavishes classic spa treatments and specialized services, such as oncology massage therapy, onto patrons in a dimly lit atmosphere. They even allow guests to customize their treatments by using an add-on menu, which includes aromatherapy and scalp massages.
At Pamper Yourself, a choice of seven massage types makes it easy to do just that. Need to unwind? Try the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish or hot-stone modalities. Have an athletic injury? A sports massage soothes those overworked muscles. These massages can be combined with other services—including facials, seaweed body wraps, and mani-pedis—for a few hours of luxury.
