Hot stones and aromatherapy oils gently glide across the body inside private rooms at @ease Spa, unwinding tight muscles and calming tense minds. Aromatherapy is also used during facials to rebalance the complexion and make sure clients don't leave with their faces smelling like regular old skin. Other relaxing services at the spa include a full-body sugar or Dead Sea mud rub and Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient technique where light pressure is applied to 26 specific points on the body to relieve aches and improve respiration. No matter the treatment, the spa's massage therapists are glad to customize pressure to each guest's liking, and afterward, a complimentary sauna and shower await.
Tom Augustyniak](http://gr.pn/iuNDl4) knows more than a thing or two about how the body works. In 1985, he earned his masters in physical education in Wroclaw, Poland, and he has a 3rd degree black belt in Judo to his name. (Tangentially, Judo translates to English as the "gentle way" and is the art of using someone's strength of over-exertion against them.) This preponderance of understanding informs Tom's extensive repertoire of massage techniques, which he officially honed at the Helma Institute of Massage Therapy in 1999. Gliding Swedish strokes simply easy pain while bolstering circulation, and more intensive deep tissue techniques target buried muscle knots. Tom's advanced Lypossage sessions aim to trim down excess inches by shooing away cellulite and melting any accidentally swallowed ice cubes. For clients who have insane schedules or are incapable of using maps, Tom is available for home visits in Bergen County.
The certified massage therapists at Harmony Within Massage Therapy aim to reduce pain and improve range of motion with a number of massage modalities that range from classic Swedish massage to four-handed massage work. Raindrop therapy uses essential oils and acupressure to help treat pain, and Reiki aims to channel energy, bringing balance and harmony to the body. Meanwhile, the Isabell Gatto method uses the therapist’s fingertips to apply pressure to 50 specific points on the body, opening blocked energy pathways. Two private massage rooms provide a tranquil setting as candles flicker and warmth streams from a heated massage table equipped with a blanket, and heated neck and eye pillows.
Perfect Brows NYC doesn’t just remove hair above the eyes; the studio removes it from all over the body using three different methods. Its threading services uproot follicles on the face with a twisted cotton thread. And during waxing services, a thin layer of molten wax covers fuzzy areas and adheres to hairs before pulling them from the root. The third method used, called sugaring, is an organic alternative that removes hair with a natural paste made from sugar, lemon juice, guar gum, and water. This method is proven to provide less breakage and ingrown hairs and to leave clients with skin as smooth as a newborn dolphin. Each method provides a blank canvas for the studio’s other services, which include henna work and facials.
