The combination of flowers, thoroughly cushioned reddish-brown leather chairs, mint-green walls, and Asian decorative accents gives Leisure Health Spa a tranquil appearance. But the center?s trained acupuncturists, massage therapists, and aestheticians do their part as well to instill a sense of calm in each client. Therapists use a soothing touch as they knead out knots lodged in legs and lengthen spines compressed like cartoon accordions?meaning someone drew them that way. The spa?s aestheticians, armed with Obagi skincare products, also foster relaxing experiences. But they do so by way of custom facials, which help brighten and smooth complexions affected by acne, wrinkles, and overactive oil glands. Clients can feel at ease even during detoxifying body wraps, as technicians cocoon their contour-cream-covered figures tightly to boost lymphatic circulation.
Consuelo wants to hear about your shoulders. And your back. And your joints. Call it professional curiosity?Consuelo begins all of her sessions with a consultation so she can tailor each session to her clients' needs and goals. A licensed massage therapist for 10 years, she specializes in trigger point therapy and pain management, and provides therapeutic massages to help clients overcome stiffness, tension, or injuries incurred while playing sports or standing in for the badminton net. Joining her is a staff that includes specialists in Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue massage, as well as detoxifying body wraps. And, in addition to custom treatments, Kneadful Touch Therapeutic Massage also offers massages for expecting mothers, as well as treatments that cater to seniors and couples.
The certified therapists at A Perfect Day Spa coax burdens of stress and tension out of client bodies with an expansive repertoire of massage techniques. Muscle pamperings are available across an intensity spectrum that ranges from light and relaxing to deep tissue, with something to suit every client. The classic Swedish method uses kneading and sliding to dissolve tightness, and the sports massage helps to rehabilitate athletes weary from slam-dunk marathons. Backs will peacefully glow with warmth and improved circulation after hot stones draw out the chill of inflexibility. A Perfect Day Spa also offers a pregnancy massage specifically designed to mitigate the aches of carrying around a perfectly formed, tiny adult.
By 2011, Promila Shar knew that it was time for a name change. The aesthetician?who opened Taj Beauty & Wellness in 2004?had gained a legion of loyal customers for her mastery of Ayurveda, a discipline she studied diligently in both America and India. These traditional Hindu treatments put her clients into deep states of relaxation, so much so that she earned the nickname "skin shaman." Encouraged by her success, Ms. Shar changed her business' name to something more fitting: Kayantra, a combination of the Sanskrit words for "body" and "instrument."
Visits to Kayantra begin with a free consultation, during which Ms. Shar and her team diagnose skin issues and recommend the best possible treatment plan. These plans could include anything from an express facial to the Nirvana Ayurvedic Package, which combines a facial with pressure-point therapy, a foot treatment, and other relaxing services.
