Balanced Therapy’s trained therapists cast out stress and discomfort with an array of massage techniques. The ashiatsu massage employs the firm compressions of a therapist’s bare feet to appease backs harboring deep pockets of stress or collections of outdated phonebooks. Dorsal walkers balance between two bars to apply as much pressure as possible for more effective toe kneads and deeper bodywork. Spines tired from failed heists of the Liberty Bell can ease aches with the tension-melting hot-stone treatment, which delivers care packages of warmth to deep tissue. The spread of multisensory muscle kneads also includes relaxation and prenatal massages. The studio’s intimate setting swaddles guests in calm with minimalist décor, private treatment rooms, and a colorful mural of koi fish.
Stocked with four tiers of UV tanning beds alongside Norvell airbrush-tanning systems, House of Tans' meticulously clean facility invites clients to build bronzed glows for beach-ready complexions or special occasions. UV beds upgrade classic encapsulating designs with perks such as audio systems, cooling fans, and neck and shoulder reflectors that beam rays toward hard-to-reach spots. The salon’s retinue of trained airbrush technicians also mists patrons in a bronzer-enhanced Norvell tanning spray that inspires a natural-looking golden hue over 24 hours, conferring up to seven days of radiant skin that might taste like a California golden raisin. The salon also offers patrons access to a supply of Twilight Teeth whitening kits, which use UV rays to brighten smiles that contrast strongly with well-tanned skin tones, and Fit body wraps, which may burn up to 1,500 calories per session.
Hernando Massage's therapists untie knotted muscles during therapeutic massages using a variety of techniques. During Swedish massages, they glide their nimble fingers over the back to reduce stress and tension, or they use targeted pressure during deep-tissue massages that can alleviate chronic pain caused by filling in for the boss's desk chair after his broke. The therapists also use prenatal massages to give expectant mothers a break from the physical demands that arise with pregnancy.
Add-on options, such as aromatherapy and sugar-foot scrubs, add another layer of relaxation.
