Epique Massage's licensed therapists aid bodies in brushing off tension with a variety of time-tested massage techniques in addition to forward-thinking equipment such as HydroLuxe massage beds that are outfitted with water-jets. In their repertoire of hand-delivered modalities, traditional Swedish massage tames stress with smooth strokes, while strategically placed hot stones melt subdermal tension and any accidentally swallowed ice cubes. With Epique's unique membership packages, clients can make massage a part of their general wellness routine, right alongside regular exercise and hourly sock changing.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
Though MassagEscape arose from humble beginnings?the spa began as a single treatment room shared by two therapists and a cardboard cutout of MacGyver?it was destined for greater things. An influx of customers quickly prompted the owners to transition into a larger facility with two treatment rooms and a team of five therapists at the ready. The staff offers a variety of massage services ranging from relaxing Swedish massage to Thai yoga massage, a rhythmic dance between therapist and client that blends yoga postures with assisted stretches.
Dr. Faiz Anwar helms a professional clinic that nourishes human exteriors with several beautifying spa services. The non-invasive microdermabrasion facial exfoliates the derma to reveal healthy, younger-looking skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun-damaged skin, and mild scarring caused from slapstick raccoon attacks. Clients can opt for a fixed quantity of Botox, a prescription medicine that gets injected directly into muscles to obstruct the nerve impulses that generate fine lines. This simple, non-surgical treatment helps to temporarily improve signs of aging, including crow's-feet, glabellar lines, and forehead wrinkles on the faces of people ages 18–65.
Whether employing a well-trained pair of hands to soothe tense muscles or a state-of-the-art laser system to remove unwanted hair, the specialists at Beauty & Body Wellness Spa strive toward a common goal to promote beauty, confidence, and well-being. Licensed massage therapists and medically trained personnel work side-by-side in their endeavor to help clients flourish inside and out. Cosmetic services such as skin tightening or spider-vein treatments allow for supple, unblemished contours worthy of being shown off at the beach, and a weight-loss specialist stands ready to help clients slip into yesterday's pants or use ski poles as cover during bouts of hide-and-seek.
