Massages don?t just loosen tight back muscles. The therapeutic benefits extend to improving range of motion, circulation, sleep habits, and overall moods. At Plainsboro Massage Spa, the massage therapists find success with a combination of techniques, such as kneading, compression, frictioning,and mobilizing. Because the benefits of massage can increase when received regularly, Plainsboro also offers massage memberships. This makes it easier and more cost effective for clients to pop in for monthly massages.
At Skin Solutions Staten Island, the main focus is, of course, skin, and a team of aestheticians works to clear it of the many epidermal issues that can plague it. Some techniques are more advanced, including an extensive array of laser services that treat anything from age spots and acne to spider veins and loss of elasticity. There are cellulite treatments, too, as well as Botox injections and permanent-makeup applications.
More traditional therapies include several types of facials, such as glycolic peels and deep-pore cleansing. Body treatments nourish the skin with seaweed wraps or honey-almond scrubs, and massage therapy relaxes muscles with Swedish, hot-stone, or reflexology sessions.

Andria, the owner and massage therapist of Inner Peace Healing, believes that every form of massage has its value. Whether it's a Swedish massage that gently relieves tension or a reiki session that balances the body's energies, the benefits of professional bodywork are tangible.
Andria's goal as a therapist is to raise the public's awareness of these benefits, one massage at a time. She specializes in a wide variety of modalities, ranging from neuromuscular therapy to sports massage. Regardless of which style she practices, her clients tend to appreciate the outcome. Talk with her before scheduling a treatment to discuss which techniques are best for preventing injury, managing pain, or finding out if you're still ticklish.
