Antonio Collazo, the licensed therapist of Heavenly Healing Hands Massage?established in 2003?doesn't think of massage as a luxury. Rather, he sees massage as a necessity to maintaining total wellness: for example, he uses his signature Swedish technique to boost circulation, lower blood pressure, and support the immune system.

Cranium Euphoria, Foot Frenzy, and Hot Rock & Roll. These aren?t new dance fads; they?re just a few of the unique names The Massage Center gives to its different modalities. Behind these fanciful titles lay nearly 15 different targeted full-body treatments. The menu includes aromatherapeutic massages, lymphatic drainage, and classic deep-tissue bodywork. As a reward for repeat clients, The Massage Center offers a paid membership program that grants individuals free massages and reduced rates. The team can even visit clients at their place of work to perform chair massages, provided your boss doesn?t mind company chairs being slathered in essential oils.
Owner Darren Pena has traveled around the world as a founding member of the Pureology Brand Artistic Team, working at high-profile events such as New York Fashion Week and earning ink in industry magazines like Modern Salon along the way. Darren channels all of this experience at his eponymous salon, where he and his staff favor organic and eco-friendly hair products and emphasize the health of their clients' hair and skin. Just as they shun run-of-the-mill products, they also eschew cookie-cutter treatments, striving instead to customize each service to each individual client. They achieve this by starting every hair service?from cutting to texturizing?with a consultation in which stylists analyze the client's hair and listen to their needs and goals. From there, they craft a 'do that gels with the client's features, and can even prepare a unique, one-of-a-kind color in one of Florida's largest open color bars. Hair isn't the only star of the show, though?Darren Pena Salon and Spa also offers facials, peels, mani-pedis, massages, and airbrush tanning.
Seeing your baby for the first time is a magical experience that starts with the ultrasound. To take that experience a step further, Childbirth Options creates three-dimensional images of your baby in utero between 24 and 36 weeks. These images are designed to give you a glimpse of who the little tyke might turn out to be via keepsake portrait images. Depending on the baby's position, getting memorable pictures can be difficult, so the sonographer will provide a free follow-up visit if you can't get pictures on the first try. After moms-to-be experience the joy of seeing their babies give a Vulcan salute, they can sooth their tense muscles during a therapeutic upper-body or back-and-leg massage.
