In addition to the energy-balancing benefits of Japanese reiki treatments, massage therapists also evict bodily stress with Russian-style platza sessions. After reclining on a bench in the steamy comfort of the onsite sauna, clients submit skin to the gentle swirls of oak leaves infused with hot water and olive oil soap. The combination of heat and bodywork nourishes skin, exfoliating away grime and temporary tattoos that keep mysteriously reappearing. In private treatment rooms, therapists also practice traditional Western massage modalities, kneading muscles during Swedish and deep-tissue sessions illuminated by flickering candlelight.
Despite its name, Fingers Salon & Spa isn't all about hands and nails. Manicures, pedicures, and soothing paraffin dips are certainly among the spa's most popular treatments, but they never threaten to overshadow the full list of hair services. That's largely because the stylists are so talented at what they do, whether it involves cutting and highlighting hair or counting individual strands to make sure they're all accounted for. Other services on the spa's extensive menu include cleansing facials, massages, and hair removal.
Dr. Bhanu J. Shah helps men and women to improve their looks with Ageless Spa Medica’s full menu of cosmetic services. Her team of aestheticians rejuvenates skin, removes unruly hair, and sculpts bodies using lasers, injectable fillers, and minimally invasive liposuction. For home skincare regimens, Ageless Spa Medica sells dermatologist-formulated cleansers, exfoliators, anti-aging products, and anti-growing-up serums.
The relaxation squad at This Is It Salon and Spa believe just as strongly in cosmetic trends as they do in the medical benefits of massage. Though the salon’s service menu may seem polarized at first glance, the staff manages to pull it all together by creating proper pairings powered by high-end products from Aveda, Essential, and It&ly.
In the spa’s private rooms, therapists perform facials and body treatments, as well as 10 types of massages, each of which aids in the release of muscular tension and pain. Massage modalities range from deep-tissue and hot-stone varieties to carpal-tunnel or pre- and post-natal massage. The therapists also perform therapeutic massages to ease pain caused by chronic illnesses. The spa has been approved to accept insurance and physician referrals for medical massages. Regardless of the selected modality, the spa staff happily executes both in-studio and on-location sessions, traveling throughout the area to perform makeup and nail services for events ranging from weddings to stuffed-animal tea parties.
One is better than two, but three is better than all of them. So at the Madison Heights Chiropractic Center, a trio of physicians triangulate their knowledge of the human body to identify ailments, ease injuries, and educate clients about healthy living. With a 40-year track record and a doctorate from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Allen Kash sits on the board of the Michigan Chiropractic Society and allies himself with the American Chiropractic Association. His colleague, Dr. Matthew Cohen has a bachelor's degree in kinesiology, a doctorate from Logan College of Chiropractic, and over five years of experience. He treats patients with a medley of chiropractic techniques, physiotherapy procedures, rehabilitative exercises, and natural supplementation. Finally, nationally certified massage therapist Phil Schultz aids the spine-straightening process with massage while using an array of techniques, such as Swedish, deep tissue, pregnancy, and hot stones. All of his massages can include a complimentary spinal screening, during which the good doctor assesses spinal alignment.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
