The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Sammi Gene Salon and Spa delight patrons with relaxing massages and purifying body wraps. During the 60-minute European body massage, a muscle kneader coaxes tension from backs with dedicated strokes, gentle pressure, and promises of trips to the zoo. Clients who opt for the seaweed wrap can choose between two marine-grass modalities. The re-mineralizing seaweed wrap increases skin's capacity for moisture, imbuing it with a refreshed glow and raising the ire of jealous camels, and the detoxifying seaweed wrap first hydrates skin and then siphons away the absorbed fluid, leaving bodies svelte and clean.
Surrounded by the soothing tones of sage and cranberry, clients at Sohmage leave their worries at the door. Exfoliating scrubs, facials, and detoxifying wraps aim to boost appearances and overall health, whereas energy-healing sessions work to reroute the flow of energy that would otherwise be rerouted to power your neighbors' fridge.
The term "full-service" can vary greatly from salon to salon. But at Dolce LLC The Academy, students really do primp clients from head to toe. Student stylists perform precision cuts for men and women, as well as a host of coloring and straightening treatments.
As an accident-recovery and cervical-back-pain specialist, it?s fair to say Andrea Reilly has witnessed suffering. But as a licensed massage therapist, it?s also fair to say she understands relief. Andrea has spent nine years as a licensed massage therapist, and most of her time is spent in the health-care field, working alongside doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists. Her attentive bodywork techniques and passion for healing come to a head at Massage by Andrea, where she has carved out a relaxing space for clients to unwind and recover. She offers Swedish, hot-stone, and deep-tissue massage, as well as reflexology and area-specific treatments.
Rain and Sage Therapeutic Massage, LLC's founder Maryellen practices a style of massage that incorporates more senses than just touch. She keeps her ears open during every session, communicating with clients and adjusting her work based on their feedback. As she works, she incorporates aromatherapy scents that help clients relax by assuring them their uncles didn't really steal their noses. During foot massages, she'll introduce seasonal aromas: pumpkin nutmeg in the fall, peppermint in the winter, and lemon or eucalyptus in the spring.
Patty Kingsbury got her first massage when she was in her mid-30s. At the time, she weighed 400 pounds, faced health concerns, and was deeply self-conscious about her weight. Though her therapist could have made the experience a gruesome one, she assured Patty that massage is for everyone, no matter their age or size. That feeling of acceptance touched Patty and inspired her to take control of her health and enroll at massage school.
Now, she shares that open environment with everyone who steps through the doors at Healing Hands And Bodyworks. She, her husband, and a team of therapists all provide therapeutic massages in a variety of modalities including Swedish, hot stone, and neuromuscular. During their healing hands four-handed tandem massage, two therapists work on sore muscles at the same time, creating an extremely relaxing session. Raindrop therapy, meanwhile, uses essential oils and light stretches to bring the body back into alignment with its shadow.
