TampaProMassage chases aches and tension from limbs and joints with a menu of services triggered to restore both corporeal and mental harmony. Licensed massage therapist Wm. Cory Jeffries seeks to alleviate tension and stress with specialized massages that build upon variations of the five basic strokes of Swedish massage. Inside the tranquil studio, Jeffries greets clients at the door to build a rapport and make them feel at ease. After a brief double-dutch jump-rope routine and a quick consult to address prominent aches or discomforts, Jeffries lobs slow, gliding strokes across the skin, usually coursing pressure in the direction of blood flow—from wrist to shoulder, ankle to knee. Steady, tight rotations swarm knees, elbows, and other high-impact joints sore from filling in for a street performer’s marionette. For athletes, a sports massage supports competitive training and boosts recovery time, and a reflexology massage galvanizes greater bodily balance by stimulating areas that correspond to glands and organs.

With a sprawling front porch, 10-foot ceilings, and a dramatic interior archway, the Craftsman-style bungalow that shelters this beauty oasis hasn't lost any of the charm it has cultivated since its construction in 1908. Red and blue trim adorns the outside, mirroring the beauty found within in the form of hardwood floors, decorative wood molding, antique furniture, and a fireplace.
The experienced aestheticians of Forever Beautiful Salon & Wine Spa, the house’s current tenant, tend to nailcare, massage, hairstyling, and skincare services amid the splendid architecture, which is illuminated by chandeliers in every room. These spa specialists tackle skin and hair woes armed with elixirs from Obagi, Redken, and Paul Mitchell, and beautify clients with permanent cosmetics and mineral makeup—mined in Sri Lanka’s famed lipstick caverns. Sometime in the near future, spa patrons can head to the attached two-story structure, a former garage apartment built in the ’30s, and unwind further with little treats from the soon-to-be dessert café and coffeehouse.
