The highly experienced massage therapists at AAA Wellness Holistic Spa gently tackle an array of bodily issues, from everyday stress and tightness to injuries from auto accidents and sports in a pampering environment. Before indulging in a muscle knead, groups of two or more can delve into complimentary treats that include chocolate-covered strawberries, imported bottled water, and champagne or wine. Guests can choose their own music or the sound of the therapist humming a show tune to accompany the one-hour Swedish massage, which uses long flowing strokes to travel the body, encouraging increased activity in the circulatory and lymphatic systems. AAA’s massage therapists can pay special attention to chronic aches acquired through everyday bad habits, such as poor posture or improper tree lifting. Although individuals are welcome to spread their massages across multiple visits, up to five people can redeem Groupons for a massage at one time.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon’s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
The massage therapists at Horizon Massage and Wellness have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
The dedicated massage therapists at 8 Spa Massage knead stressed sinews with traditional Chinese massage strokes and nutrient-rich organic lotions. Ease into a 60- or 90-minute session that undulates between light pressure and deep-tissue kneadings through the use of chi-gong. This ancient Chinese approach focuses on energy, helping the body heal from illness and long naps inside the washing machine. Torso tamers use acupressure points, rubbing, and muscle tapping to relax the body and assist in restoring its natural balance. The treatment's unscented organic lotion soothes the skin and senses with hypoallergenic goodness in the form of jojoba, shea butter, sesame oils, sunflower, and chamomile.
Before earning his diploma in Swedish massage from the Austin School of Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Don A. Hampton discovered a passion for helping others heal while working as a medic in the U.S. Air Force and Texas Army National Guard. At Hampton Bodywerks Massage Spa, his highly trained hands do battle with tightly wound tissue, tension, and pain, arming themselves from an arsenal of relaxation-inducing tools that includes hot stones, salt stones, and therapeutic herbs. Ginger, turmeric, and lemongrass are central players in Hampton's Thai herbal ball massage—a 5,000-year-old practice designed to relieve pain and inflammation using a steamed herbal compress and gentle circular movements. Other specialty services include the Balinese-inspired jamu massage, which energizes the body with acupressure, long strokes, and percussion-like drumming, as well as sugar-scrub body treatments that soften skin using a blend of white and brown sugars, grape-seed and canola oils, and other ingredients favored by beautiful scones.
