At Get Zen Healing Centers, the experienced staff fuses Eastern and Western healing methods to complement clients’ professional medical treatments. The centers’ services include detoxifying colon hydrotherapy and herbal remedies that can address sluggishness and fatigue. Certified practitioners use acupuncture and massage to treat stress and soreness. The skilled therapists can also combine services to create a customized wellness plan for each client that might include nutritional supplements, acupuncture, and bodywork to tackle digestive disorders, migraines, and lingering guilt about eating that whole bottle of your kids’ Flintstones vitamins.
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.
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the firm compressions of a therapist’s bare feet to appease backs harboring deep pockets of stress or collections of outdated phonebooks.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.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon not only gussy up guests from head to toe with a range of beautifying services but also go the extra mile to ensure that clients are as relaxed as possible. After soothing skin and remedying epidermal maladies with glycolic peels and a variety of facials, the relaxation experts complement face-refurbishing treatments with shiatsu massages that catapult sore bodies onto cloud nine—or into the neighbor’s backyard jacuzzi. While clients yield their hands and feet to the skilled manicurist Shantel, they snuggle into a tension-taming massage chair and unload their stresses. After nail techs finish dolling up digits, they also can perform a foot massage upon request. The salon’s menu of services rounds out with eyebrow, lip, and forearm waxing as well as UV-tanning sessions.
