Epique Massage's licensed therapists aid bodies in brushing off tension with a variety of time-tested massage techniques in addition to forward-thinking equipment such as HydroLuxe massage beds that are outfitted with water-jets. In their repertoire of hand-delivered modalities, traditional Swedish massage tames stress with smooth strokes, while strategically placed hot stones melt subdermal tension and any accidentally swallowed ice cubes. With Epique's unique membership packages, clients can make massage a part of their general wellness routine, right alongside regular exercise and hourly sock changing.
Structure Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork owner and certified massage therapist Jeanette Falu-Bishop began her career on U.S. military bases in Germany, donating her healing hands to soldiers and their families. Guided by input from a complaining back, screaming shoulders, or softly lowing calves, clients choose one of five modalities ranging in intensity and technique to respond to their particular aches. Palms glide over sensitive areas during popular Swedish massages, where a combination of connective strokes and light to medium pressure stimulates circulation to gently relieve physical tension. Russian sports massages and deep-tissue techniques may help relieve joint tension and rout out hidden knots or copies of War and Peace, and props such as river rocks or bamboo wands aid fingers in pinpointing pain and unclogging inner wellsprings of peace.
At three locations across the Metroplex area, licensed massage therapists at The Massage Co. have loosened muscles and reduced stress during more than 40,000 massages. They customize seven different modalities, ranging from the targeted finger pressure of trigger-point therapy to the ancient art of reflexology, which is designed to address health issues throughout the whole body via channels in the feet. Massage therapy's myriad health benefits include better circulation, improved flexibility, and an enhanced capacity for creative thought, which comes in handy when converting your twin mattress to a king-size using nothing but bubble wrap.
The staff at Massage Harmony operates under the philosophy that everything about a massage—from scheduling the appointment to the moment you get off the treatment table—should be stress-free. That's why both of Massage Harmony's locations book massage appointments until 9 p.m. every day of the week, ensuring even clients with busy schedules can find the time for relaxation. Teams of licensed massage therapists harness the healing powers of a range of modalities ranging from classic Swedish massage to foot-focused ashiatsu bar therapy, which uses the therapist's clean, soft feet to administer deep pressure. During sessions that last 30, 60, or 90 minutes, clients repose in a treatment room designed to facilitate relaxation as effectively as waterbed filled with warm milk.

Though the sound of joyful cheers roars from the nearby Dallas Cowboys Stadium and Six Flags, it is nothing but calm and quiet inside The Serenity Room. To keep up the atmosphere promised by their name, the modern spa's team of trained massage therapists and aestheticians make sure to keep the environment tranquil while creating a soothing spa experience for men and women. During massage sessions, muscles are reenergized with 10 different types of massage modalities, such as hot stone and prenatal, whereas add-ons such as a paraffin wax, a foot scrub, or a funny-bone tickling enhance body treatments. Five types of facials are also customized to clients' needs as aestheticians nourish dry skin, erase signs of acne, and exfoliate rough skin with peptide-infused products and diamond-tip microdermabrasion treatments.
