The therapists at Healthy Tone Spa ease aches and melt muscle tension with massages. They can improve circulation with Swedish strokes, untie lower-layer knots using deep-tissue pressure, or apply therapeutic hot stones to promote weight loss in husky snowmen. But bodywork is only one tool in the spa's ample arsenal. Aestheticians use everything from low-frequency sound waves to the crystal exfoliation of microdermabrasions for complexion renewal, tailoring treatments to individual needs. Clients may also opt for a waxing session to clear away excess body hair?or that unwanted third eyebrow from your shoulder blade.
Massage Wellness Haven is a virtual font of massage modalities. These modalities include Swedish, myofacial release, raindrop therapy, and hot- and cold-stone massages. The therapist, Elvis Gardin, has used these methods to relieve aching muscles for a variety of clients including contestants in the American Idol Tour 2006 and Broadway actors from Wicked and Fame.
Elements Massage focuses on proving a true therapeutic experience, fending off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions, treating each client as their most important client. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads promote well-being, combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
Lotus Day Spa specializes in natural corrective treatments to reduce signs of age and improve the skin's quality. The facility's licensed aestheticians use Institut’ DERmed Spa products with Chiral technology––an advanced process that isolates molecules to chemically restore the complexion to its once vibrant glow. Guests may also request a facial wax or threading session, or retreat to a private room for an aromatherapy massage with soothing oils.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
I agree, part of our job is to remove all the stress and pains that makes our clients unhappy, and let their true personality show after the massage. A client could arrive unhappy and frowning, but would come out of their session smiling and relaxed.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Seeing clients return month after month, hearing how their life takes them places and how we have helped them achieve their goal of a healthy life. It's like seeing a family member or close friend every time.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
We focus on health because we grew up where therapeutic massage is a part of life. That's the reason we are in this business, to help people discover the health benefit of massage??which is not glamorous, but rather a necessity.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I learned a long time ago that every massage therapist is different. A therapist could be the best in the studio, but unless she or he is the one you need it could be the worst massage that you've had. Our goal is to match you with the right therapist that can best help you, so we highly recommend that you call ahead and let us find that right therapist for you.
