Palm trees and ocean views show up in unexpected places at Tenacious Tan + Spa—on clients' nails. Impressive nail art is just one of the services the salon offers, along with airbrush tanning, makeup application, waxing, and haircare. Massage therapist Leesa pampers clients with massages, such as the hot-stone massage with a choice of soothing aromatherapy scents.
Each of the staff members at What You Love To Do is versed in more than just one method of healing, from massage therapy to reiki and the cranial release technique. Together, their services are designed to both repair the body and help prevent future injury or illness. For example, they work to realign the body's energy levels with vibrational sound therapy, which can help clients feel more relaxed and energized. Their craniosacral and massage therapies can help rid the body of persistent tension and aches, while ionic foot baths expel toxins from the body through the feet, the most favorable body part from which to expel toxins.
At jon-michele's Massage Therapy, candlelight illuminates calming yellow and cocoa tones as therapists John Kihm and Michelle Johnson deploy an array of massages. Both kneading experts graduated from Space Coast Health Institute, and John went on to complete an internship with the Washington Nationals. The therapists specialize in the injury-assuaging strokes of sports massage, but also employ modalities such as Swedish massage to melt muscle tension more quickly than a radiator melts Legos. Deep-tissue massages delve into tension, hot stones warm targeted points for intense unwinding, and couples and pregnancy massage tend to tense twosomes.
Dr. Kevin Fogarty employs years of professional experience to alleviate chronic pain and bring bodies to their optimal working condition. Chiropractic care aims to improve body function and health with regular spinal adjustments and drug-free, wellness-oriented treatment. During the first visit, an initial exam familiarizes the doctor with patients’ medical histories and concerns, and an x-ray if necessary deliver in-depth analysis of the spine and its glitter-filled core. On following visits, the well-trained hands of an experienced chiropractor deliver healing adjustments to wayward vertebrae, treating injuries and chronic health issues by repairing harmful subluxations, misalignments of spinal bones that place pressure on vital nerves, blocking impulses to important organs or forcing feet to perform involuntary clog-dance routines.
Pain. The holistic healers at Integrative Bodywork, Inc view this as not only the word describing a physical symptom, but also the acronym for the phrase "Putting Attention INward." They see pain as the body's cry for help, a manifestation of trauma, and that people need to turn their attention in toward themselves to overcome it.
To do so, they use the Unified therapy process. Unified therapy practitioners believe that it can be used to unlock traumas. Some techniques used include stretching, resistance exercises, and massage. Practitioners use natural pain management and noninvasive methods, and collaborate with patients and their physicians or therapists to create beneficial health results. Jim Fazio, a massage therapist since 1995, learned about the treatment while working with its creator, and began implementing its healing techniques with his patients at Integrative Bodywork in 2006.
Fazio is joined at Integrative Bodywork by registered nurse Ralph de St. Aubin. He consults on patients on a variety of health matters, including chronic pain, thyroid conditions, and digestive and nutritional issues. He also specializes in microcurrent point stimulation therapy, the practice of lessening pain and restricted movement from scars.
A muscular therapy session at Fix therapy can yield all the benefits of an hour-long massage in just a third of the time. The 20-minute therapy isn't magic, though—it's just astonishingly efficient. Initial sessions at The Fix Therapy start with a review of the patient's medical history and three tests, which assess day-to-day posture habits and resting body alignment. Based on this information, a licensed therapist crafts a personalized cocktail of wellness therapies designed to target and "fix" observed problems with great accuracy. These highly specialized fix therapy sessions could incorporate techniques ranging from reflexology and craniosacral massage to cupping, the art of placing cups on the back to create a therapeutic suction sensation and clear some space in the dish cupboard.
In addition to relieving aches and pains, the staffers work to educate clients on how to avoid injuries and correct poor posture habits that contribute to bodily problems. They also offer acupuncture and aesthetic services, including facials, microderabrasions, and contouring body wraps.
