At Spirit Rising Yoga & Healing, the 2011 and 2013 winner of CityVoter's Best Yoga Studio award, yogic poses double as medicine for the body, mind, and soul. Owners Stacey and Jeff Coffey help their students find a peaceful way to navigate the tension and obstacles present in everyday life. Stress melts and muscles strengthen during private yoga instruction and expert-led classes, which range from athletic Ashtanga sessions to gentle Yin routines that bolster connective tissue in the hips and spine. Complimentary mats, pillows, blocks, and belts may be borrowed to assist students' practice or Rube Goldberg machines. In addition to leading yoga, vinyasas, and meditation classes, the studio specializes in alternative healing techniques, such as reiki, massage therapy, and auricular acupuncture, that retune the body's natural energy flow.
In a sense, Teresa's Salon and Spa?s team of stylists is just like the renowned impressionist Renoir?you can?t discuss either without delving into a conversation about color. Only, the salon?s experts use their clients? hair as their canvases, paging through color swatches to find the ideal hue for each guest's skin tone. They render highlights or full color with Schwarzkopf and Redken products, leaving locks sleeker than a seal dressed in a tuxedo. Behind nail stations, technicians adorn digits with acrylic and gel faux nails or with long-lasting Shellac and OPI polishes. Away from the salon floor, massage therapists tend to sore muscles with Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports techniques. Aestheticians round out the salon-and-spa roster, and they cleanse pores with european facials and enhance them with optional medical-grade peels.
Each LaVida Massage location is a comfortable place that invites people of all ages, genders, and shoe sizes to unwind and improve their emotional, physical, and immiscible well-beings. During a 60-minute deep tissue massage session, one of LaVida’s skilled deck hands will untangle back knots by applying firm pressure to the deepest layers of soft tissue. Targeting specific muscle groups causes concentrated pain and soreness relief. If your face rather than your muscles are on your mind, opt for the LaVida facial. This therapeutic treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives dermises a deep cleaning.
Six hundred hours of massage training has led to 12,000 bodywork sessions over the course of Greg Gaugler’s 15-year career. Yet, though these stats might entice a client to seek him out, there are other key details about his background that make him stand apart from other therapists.
For example, Gaugler also holds certifications in personal training, golf health and fitness, and active isolated stretching, disciplines that profoundly influence his massages. He specializes in a sports massage that is far superior to just dribbling a basketball on a client’s back, and he often complements his kneads with prescribed stretches. Through his massages—which include myofascial, Swedish and neuromuscular techniques—he strives to improve his patients’ balance and alleviate chronic pain.
Revitalizing appearances is only half of the job for Saigon Spa's staff of aestheticians, nail technicians, and nail therapists. Additionally, they specialize in creating a peaceful atmosphere with an emphasis on pampering and relaxation. This is apparent in the spa's various manicures and pedicures, which can go beyond traditional nail care to become truly indulgent experiences by incorporating heated stones, soothing paraffin dips, or calming aromatherapy oils. During massages, the therapists either use relaxation-inducing strokes or therapeutic deep-tissue pressure as they unfurl tightly knotted muscles and stubbornly tied scarves. Even the facials help clients find balance as the aestheticians thoroughly cleanse pores and restore the skin's naturally youthful radiance.
