As an accident-recovery and cervical-back-pain specialist, it?s fair to say Andrea Reilly has witnessed suffering. But as a licensed massage therapist, it?s also fair to say she understands relief. Andrea has spent nine years as a licensed massage therapist, and most of her time is spent in the health-care field, working alongside doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists. Her attentive bodywork techniques and passion for healing come to a head at Massage by Andrea, where she has carved out a relaxing space for clients to unwind and recover. She offers Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage, as well as reflexology and area-specific treatments.
The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Sammi Gene Salon and Spa delight patrons with relaxing massages and purifying body wraps. During the 60-minute European body massage, a muscle kneader coaxes tension from backs with dedicated strokes, gentle pressure, and promises of trips to the zoo. Clients who opt for the seaweed wrap can choose between two marine-grass modalities. The re-mineralizing seaweed wrap increases skin's capacity for moisture, imbuing it with a refreshed glow and raising the ire of jealous camels, and the detoxifying seaweed wrap first hydrates skin and then siphons away the absorbed fluid, leaving bodies svelte and clean.
Surrounded by the soothing tones of sage and cranberry, clients at Sohmage leave their worries at the door. Exfoliating scrubs, facials, and detoxifying wraps aim to boost appearances and overall health, whereas energy-healing sessions work to reroute the flow of energy that would otherwise be rerouted to power your neighbors' fridge.
The term "full-service" can vary greatly from salon to salon. But at Dolce LLC The Academy, students really do primp clients from head to toe. Student stylists perform precision cuts for men and women, as well as a host of coloring and straightening treatments.
Heather Soss isn't just licensed to massage?she also boasts national certification, fluency in reiki techniques, and a membership with the American Massage Therapy Association. With these tools in her belt, she mends muscles and fosters personal growth. Before Heather opened her own studio, she immersed herself in the spa industry and spent two years working at a massage school. With that experience, she founded Health & Harmony Massage and Wellness Center, a peaceful retreat surrounded by a bike-path-equipped patch of nature, where clients can relinquish anxiety and heal.
Her team of licensed and trained therapists continues their education to bolster their menu of techniques, which includes Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal massage. While their nimble fingers knead sinews with Somasilk massage cream, the therapists can cover clients' eyes with lavender-eucalyptus eye pillows. The team also furnishes table warmers and heating pads that help loosen gnarly tissues. In addition to releasing calming hormones, such as serotonin and dopamine, massage can reduce cortisol, the hormone responsible for stress and the birth of future terrible NFL Draft picks.
When he moved from Ireland to Manhattan, Marcus Feighery started up his own courier company. Business went swimmingly for years, but he always felt something was missing.
