Tthe licensed massage therapists knead achy muscles with a range of diverse massage modalities that ease aches associated with sports, everyday stress, or pregnancy. Clients can soothe the senses and nurture holistic wellness by adding aromatherapy to certain treatments, and eastern-inspired refloxology and acupressure are also available for enhanced well-being.
Meanwhile, A Refined Touch's nutrition response testing uses responses from acupressure points to help identify problem areas related to dietary insufficiencies. Then, with the help of nutrient-rich supplements derived from plants, clients can tweak their own diet to make it more healthy.
Ambiance Spa and Wellness Centre lavishes men and women with treatments for the entire body that employ both traditional and modern techniques. While one treatment room might house an aesthetician purging pores with irritant-free Dermalogica facials, an aesthetician on the other side of the wall is fading hyperpigmentation with Candela lasers. Meanwhile, seven types of massage invoke the warmth of hot stones or the fragrant notes of aromatherapy to smooth out knotted muscles and summon memories of a past life as a lavender blossom.
Bodies who enter Soothe Therapeutic Massage find themselves in the capable hands of licensed therapist Kiri Dyken, who has made it her life's mission to help relieve pain brought on by injury and everyday stress. Her extensive education led her from East West College of the Healing Arts in Portland, Oregon, all the way to Thailand, where she learned the art of Thai yoga massage directly from its masters. Today, she continues to practice Thai massage alongside her other specialties, including goal-oriented deep-tissue work and traditional Swedish massage, complementing each service with soft music that quietly lulls stress into a false sense of security.
At Angelical Massage, Angelica Leticia Garcia blends her training from the Houston School of Massage and the International School of Cosmetology. The Mexico City native has earned certifications in massage modalities such as the ancient Indian art of Ayurvedic massage as well as hot-stone therapy, which features river rocks tumbled smooth by rival gangs of angry carp. She accompanies her relaxing kneads with skincare treatments such as facials and exfoliating body wraps.
The Woodlands Threading's expert staffers emulate ancient Middle Eastern beautifiers by nimbly knotting thread into brow-pruning snares. Cotton loops precisely pluck strands with a twinge akin to tweezing in 15- to 30-minute threading sessions, swiftly molding brows into natural arches or handlebar mustaches. The chemical-free threading services touch up forehead fringe without irritating sensitive complexions or inciting the wrath of ingrown hairs, which is common with waxing. Over-eye fuzz remains sequestered within imposed borders for two–three weeks, much like mock-trial grand juries.
