At Massage Connection, licensed massage therapists aim to ensure that "every sight, sound, smell, and touch" makes clients feel good. While kneading muscles with light or firm hand movements, massage professionals attend to the client's comfort level, adjusting their methods to optimize relaxation and muscle health. Massages target basic aches and pains as well as the needs of expectant mothers, athletes, and milkmaids. Other spa services, including body scrubs and mud-mask treatments, draw out impurities and leave skin feeling supple. In contrast to relaxation-based options, sauna-treatment sessions promote weight-loss by warming the body, inducing sweating, and burning fat.
Voted 2011's #1 Fitness Center by Suburban Focus, Good Samaritan Health and Wellness Center’s 90,000-square-foot workout compound facilitates user-friendly body sculpting through its vast array of fitness and recreation equipment. Calibrated to absorb the pressure from running, walking, and galloping astride stick horses, the cushioned indoor track supports moving feet with a stress-free surface. Demonstrate a synchronized-swimming act in one of three pools, or take on a revivifying blast of vaporized water in the sauna and steam room. Patrons can build biceps and tone tensors with machine-bound and free weights or stack barbells until the pile resembles their favorite president. Flanked by a squadron of rowing machines and stationary bikes, a floor stocked with ellipticals, stair steppers, and treadmills keeps heart rates pumped.
New Body Massage’s licensed therapists customize every service using a wide range of modalities, including hot stone, therapeutic massage, and reiki. During treatments, therapists alternate between techniques, incorporating therapeutic and deep-tissue movements to meet the particular needs of each client. As clients relax on heated massage tables, therapists may place hot stones on shoulders to loosen buried muscles, use feet wraps to warm weathered soles, and apply cool compresses that help soothe dark circles around the eyes from a lack of proper rest or an allergy to sleep.
It’s no coincidence that portraits of Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marilyn Monroe line the walls of Timeless Laser Rejuvenation Center. Each of these women has come to represent the timeless beauty that Timeless Laser Rejuvenation Center helps patients achieve with their advanced skin and body treatments.
The doctors can often be found wielding a SmartLipo system that melts away pockets of unwanted fat without the risks associated with traditional liposuction, or keeping busy imbuing their patients with beauty in the form of Botox and other dermal fillers that erase fine lines and wrinkles. A team of skilled aestheticians takes the helm during less invasive procedures that rely on Obagi and Skinceutical products to reduce signs of acne, rosacea, and aging.
The center’s advanced equipment lives up to the staff’s remarkable breadth of experience. Hair removal, acne, and IPL lasers erase sun damage and facial veins, and Venus Freeze treatments work on skin tightening, body contouring, and reducing the appearance of cellulite and to-do lists scribbled on thighs.
Hand & Stone's licensed staff of aestheticians and muscle therapists relaxes ligaments and purifies pores with a variety of massages (a $79.95 value/session) and signature facials (a $79.95 value/session). Monthly kneading sessions may increase alertness, relieve anxiety, and improve one's attitude toward segway cops who don't use turn signals. The season of stress-busting marks three custom massages on your corporeal calendar, offering a choice of Swedish, deep tissue, sports, prenatal, and other styles to suit variously beleaguered bods.
After suffering from a number of painful complications tied to an allergic reaction, Quiet Touch's owner Jennifer Apolinario says that massage therapy was what made her feel whole. Trigger-point massage helped to relieve severe migraines, and craniosacral therapy worked to restore balance after being paralyzed on her left side. She opened Quiet Touch to share the healing power of touch through massage sessions rather than by high-fiving every sad-looking person she passes. She incorporates Biofreeze products during joint massage to restore flexibility with a cooling sensation similar to an ice pack. Paraffin dips, which for Apolinario relieved the stiffness from rheumatoid arthritis, envelop hands and feel in soothing warmth.
