The smooth, black basalt traditionally used in hot stone massage has something in common with spa owner Mahealani Trepinski's career: they were both forged in Hawaii. But while these rocks were born in the island chain's famous lava flows, Trepinski had to journey there as an adult for the training that gives her skill set a distinctive Hawaiian flavor.
The island's influence can be felt in a number of A Hawaiian Touch Natural Healing Center and Spa Inc.'s spa treatments, from lomi massages?a Hawaiian practice based on ancient ritual and music?to organic facials and seaweed detox wraps. The spa's menu is diverse, offering far infrared sauna sessions alongside a wide array of massage modalities including craniosacral, sports, and medical massage. Trepinski, who is also an Integrative Nutrition health coach, even teaches other professionals how to perform reflexology, throw spa parties, and alleviate the pain of midnight burrito cravings.
Therapeutic Body Concepts' licensed muscle maestros conduct beleaguered backs and limbs in a symphony of relaxation, deploying Swedish massage techniques in playfully decorated private rooms. The Swedish massage is characterized by elongated strokes and kneading of the superficial layer of muscles, moves that have been known to improve circulation, eradicate tension, and provoke delicious chemical reactions in yeast. Carefully crafted experiences relax brains as well as bodies: eight themed destination rooms send minds on mini vacations via images of lakeside vistas or sun-drenched beaches, all without the hassle of bag checks or brain-cavity searches.
Inside Venetian Sun Massage, amid the ambiance of a grand Roman spa, the Venetian Sun Team tend to the needs of tense, stressed clients with deep-tissue, Swedish, and heated-stone massage services. Aside from traditional massages, the licensed massage therapists also perform RainDrop therapy, and four-handed massages that double relaxation with work from two therapists. Clients afraid of going in alone can grab a partner for a couples massage, and the staff also preforms sports massage, prenatal massage, body scrubs, facials, and foot scrubs.
In their daily battle against stress, the massage therapists at Trees Bodyworks have a secret weapon: texture. They often enhance their strokes and pressures with exfoliating grains of sugar that soften calluses or silky oils that heal dry and itchy skin on the scalp. The studio?s clients can choose from a list of modalities that include both of the classics?Swedish and deep-tissue massage?as well as a specialty trigger therapy that targets muscles sore from chronic tension and pulling on the triggers of oversized novelty water guns.
In the same way a gardener cultivates the ground for vegetables, the therapists at The Garden Experience Wellness Spa cultivate the body for relaxation. And like gardeners, they use an assortment of tools along with their bare hands. Hot stones, eucalyptus essential oil, acai berry and exfoliating shea butter scrubs work to evaporate tension during customized massage sessions.
