From aroma detox massages to volcanic mud wraps, Truce's diverse spa menu tends to the body while calming the mind. During ashiatsu sessions, seasoned massage therapists hang from bars above the bed while using their feet to perform intense kneads and calming renditions of "This Little Piggy." Spa ritual packages incorporate body scrubs, massages, and facials, and multitalented aestheticians also inspire beauty with waxing and mani-pedis.
All Star Massage & Spa revives unbalanced bodies with a mentally and physically calming buffet of spa services, beginning each visit with a cup of warm tea in the relaxation room. Though the staff offers a full menu of wellness massages, the team of therapists specializes in medical massages that rehabilitate injured bodies and ease the pain of having replaced your office chair with an office camel. The spa's specialists also perform facials, body treatments, nailcare, and waxing services.
A custom medical-grade facial at Salon SoMa promises to suit the demanding needs of any diva-esque dermis. Pop in for a 30-minute express facial ($60), or, for a more thorough pore plundering, opt for a 60-minute signature facial ($95). If stray strands are starting to usurp smooth spaces, SoMa's waxing artists will customize hair-clearing by harnessing the power of pure plant technology in two different waxes. Get bikini-bound regions beach ready with a 30-minute Brazilian wax ($70), or evacuate legs’ finicky follicles ($55).
Going beyond the pure pursuit of relaxation, the practitioners at Monroe Therapeutic Massage P.S. work closely with doctors, chiropractors, and hospitals to help ensure a more well-rounded result. To accommodate a variety of clients, the staff has outfitted each massage room with cushy tables perched hydraulic lifts. The highly accessible tables make it easy for patients in wheelchairs or with limited mobility to enjoy a seamless transition from the outside world to the indoor relaxation station. For additional comfort, the beds also feature heaters that allow patients to fully unwind and soften any butter packets that may have been pocketed during last night’s dinner date.
Chiropractic experts at The Vital Energy Center use the Myovision SEMG to detect vertebral subluxations by measuring the amount of electrical activity that muscles release when they're tense. Then they use their hands to give really good massages. Choose from three different hour-long, muscle-melting massages from Vital Energy's expert therapists (graduates of the Soma Institute of Neuromuscular Integration and the Wellspring School for Healing Arts). Vital Energy is the only place in Seattle where you can get an AMMA massage: an atypical, Eastern medicinal rub that includes nutritional advice, herbal therapies, and other health suggestions like "pecans may or may not give you eternal life" or "you should work out in my garage when I'm not home."
