The licensed massage therapists at Minellis Massage Essence don’t just make patrons feel great—they also help them look their best. They knead, stroke, and rub their clients’ tight and tense muscles, promoting relaxation and stress relief. Massage therapy also stimulates lymph flow and detoxification while helping to improve circulation, energy, and balance. Additionally, the staff offers a Skinny Detox massage that helps minimize the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks with the aid of an all-natural skin-firming solution. Clients can choose from an array of tension-taming services, including trigger-point therapy and foot-reflexology treatments that refresh feet after playing a soccer game with an old mannequin head. Knots in backs unwind with the help of aromatherapy and hot stone massage sessions that help increase circulation and diminish back pain.
At Shea Essence Day Spa, the noise and stress of the outside world melt into the spa's signature organic shea butter. The product exemplifies the business' core belief: that beauty and wellness go hand-in-exfoliated-hand. Aestheticians use the body product during treatments such as the Herbs and Organic Shea Butter Deluxe Manicure or the Back Facial Treatment. During both, the shea butter exfoliates and moisturizes skin, rendering it healthier and more youthful looking.
Other treatments eschew the shea butter for hydrating creams, mud body wraps, or body products designed for specific clientele, such as men or expectant mothers. The spa also houses an infrared sauna where infrared heat travels deep within the body to promote blood flow and a detoxifying sweat.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
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.
Eric Landry, a licensed massage therapist with seven years of experience, offers Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages at Relaxing Touches. Located within Image Salon Studios, he also uses hot stones and aromatherapy to enhance the relaxing, soothing nature of the massages.
A massage can improve range of motion, reduce tension, and even tackle more complicated ailments such as depression and disco fever. That's where Massage Mind & Body Healing comes in. After a client is led to a private suite, a licensed massage therapist blends techniques such as Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to promote full-body healing and wellness. Hot-stone therapy and reflexology are also available.
