At BodyShape7 Slimming Body Wrap, Raheleh Kabiri swathes clients in herbal wraps designed to melt excess inches and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Meanwhile, soothing scents relax the mind. Afterward, clients may be able to slide into tighter pants and wriggle more easily out of double-parked clown cars.
Susan Zhao understands massage therapy. Licensed to practice in New York, Florida, Virginia, and Georgia, she divides her time between attending to clients' needs and overseeing the three Jo Jo's Massage locations that she founded. At these spas, Susan's staff uses a wide range of massage modalities intended to indulge and relax visitors, provide therapeutic relief, or even a bit of both. During hot-stone massages, a therapist treats troublesome areas with heated stones, which radiate heat to soothe tightly knotted muscles located deep beneath the surface. Reflexology treatments target specific areas along the feet with focused pressure, attempting to trigger the nerves that help heal organ systems throughout the rest of the body.
From brief chair massages to extended deep tissue or Swedish services, the certified massage therapists at Relaxation Studio can perform relaxing treatments that fit into any client's schedule and needs. Beyond common massage modalities, the therapists can soothe weary clients with a variety of specialized techniques. Reflexology sessions root out stress throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the feet, and body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells to leave clients feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated. The staff can also enhance treatments with stress-alleviating add-ons, including cupping therapy, body scrubs, and hot stones chiseled from the warm, sunburned foreheads of Mount Rushmore.
Massage therapy has the unique ability to induce a state of relaxation and simultaneously relieve pain and tension. The bodywork experts at Massage Pro know how to knead muscles to achieve both of these benefits. And, understanding that everyone has a particular set of therapeutic needs, they offer a variety of massage modalities that ranges from Eastern therapeutic massage to hot-stone massage to sports massage. Along with massage, the staff stimulates circulation with cupping-therapy sessions and invites visitors to rid themselves of toxins and pesky magic school buses during far-infrared-sauna sessions.
On their quest to help their clients achieve good health, the therapists at Origins Thai Spa deploy a careful blend of 14 Eastern and Western massage techniques. Most of their practice revolves around Thai massage, which combines deep stretching and acupressure with pressure from the therapist?s elbows, knees, and feet to activate the body's 10 major energy channels. Alternatively, Eastern-inspired ayurvedic massage uses three different oils to trigger the three doshas, or the body's three main energy pathways. During the four-hands couples massage, two therapists work on one client at the same time, using four hands to help improve circulation, promote relaxation, and inspire as many as eight high-fives.
The custom airbrush specialists at Tandulgence help keep skin sun kissed year round with UV-free treatments. Clients can step into a VersaSpa spray booth, which delivers an instant bronze; tans intensify throughout the next few hours. In addition, tanning artists perform airbrush sessions in-house or on location, misting skin with a custom blended solution that lasts for up to two weeks. For UV tanning, SunDash and Ergoline tanning machines gradually deepen hues with amenities that include open-air booths and separate facial tanners. Tandulgence also stocks its shelves with products that maximize tans, moisturize the skin, and cleanse and exfoliate surfaces.
