The name is musical—“adagio” means to play “at ease”—so it’s fitting that the services at Adagio Body Works and Wellness are meant to work in harmony. Each visit begins with a consultation, during which therapists craft a treatment plan to suit your needs. These plans span from hot-stone massages and facials to mud wraps and scrubs, so clients can emphasize either hydrating their skin or recovering from trapeze accidents involving eating ribs for lunch.
Dr. Michael McCracken's licensed massage therapists animate a corrective chiropractic approach and treat muscular knots and tissue kinks to ample kneading, tapping, and stroking to relieve corporal stress and pain. A 30- or 60-minute Swedish massage employs a supple mix of long and short movements to lessen aches and extirpate pockets of pain. Either of the two female therapists melt soft-tissues into plumes of relaxation with specialized massage techniques, such as rocking, vibration, friction, and compression to help relieve chronic-pain, reduce everyday stress and tension, and ward off illness and disease after spending a fortnight at sea or a fortnight explaining what a fortnight is to a stubborn child.
As one of two licensed massage therapists at Therapeutic Professional Group, Amy Stiles calls upon more than a decade of professional massage experience to soothe backs and shoulders. Fluid strokes dissipate stress during 30-, 60-, or 90-minute Swedish massages, and intense, deep-tissue kneading stretches muscles. Stiles can also position hot stones across the back to radiate muscle-mollifying warmth, or concentrate on the neck up by administering scalp massages and professional-level games of peekaboo.:m]]
Bright-lime-colored walls create an atmosphere of healthful exuberance inside Five Star Spa & Nails, mirroring the spa’s commitment to keeping bodies healthy and groomed with scientifically influenced skincare and up-to-date trends. Aestheticians are trained to perfect complexions, gently buffing away wrinkles and spots with microdermabrasion wands and removing brown spots or moles impulsively grown during the beauty-mark craze. When not grooming skin, whisking away body hair, or lengthening lashes, technicians flex their relaxation chops with a range of massages that can be augmented with exfoliating scrubs and tension-melting hot stones. Sitting amongst rows of Avon and OPI products, the spa’s nail technicians work to groom nails with tiers of mani-pedi treatments that make feet feel more special than being picked first to kick the moon.
The massage therapists at Blue Skyz Still Waters, LLC lull clients into tranquility with relaxing, revitalizing massage treatments. The staffers are trained in modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology massage and use their skills to relieve stress or to combat more persistent muscle pain. The facility accommodates spa days for women having a night out, clients celebrating a birthday, or lumps of dough that require kneading.
