The staff at Spa Soma treats clients with a varied menu of aesthetic, weight-loss, and medical beauty services. They work to pair a gentle, warm environment with high-quality medical treatments, such as laser hair removal. They also offer seven different types of massage, dispelling the notion that beauty procedures backed by scientific research must be performed in a cold, sterile environment devoid of human life. These effective treatments include chemical peels, microdermabrasion, injectables, and dermal fillers, which reduce telltale signs of age, such as wrinkles or tattoos written in Sanskrit.
A full-service salon complements the center's aesthetic medical services. Here, staff members perform customized haircuts and clip nails during express and spa mani-pedis.
Each location offers the regenerative properties of various varieties of massage that make a soul vessel feel springtime fresh. Of your 90-minute massage session, 10 minutes are set aside for dressing time and a consultation with your therapist to ensure your massage is customized for you.
Overheard, crystals sway, clinging to chandeliers suspended from a sky-blue ceiling. Sunbeams pour in, occasionally catching these twinkling adornments as it stripes the lobby with light on its long slide along the marble reception desk. This is New Life Massage, where tranquility begin before you even step into a treatment room. After checking in at the desk, visitors traverse ivory corridors lit by curling wall sconces before settling into a private treatment room or smashing a stress ball in the sledgehammer room. In these secluded rooms, treatments unfold, treating guests to everything from restorative Swedish massages to skincare and waxing treatments.
Inside a private treatment room, visitors to Pure Massage Therapy unwind as a licensed therapist, who is certified in 12 different massage styles, applies techniques such as myofascial release, aromatherapy, tried-and-true, trigger point, cranial, and Reiki. Other styles include sports, prenatal, deep tissue, Swedish, hot stone, and medical massages. But clients shouldn't feel overwhelmed by all the pain relief options. The knowledgeable therapist helps recommend a modality based on what the client needs, whether it's stress relief, muscle recovery, or a good night's rest after a long, long week of the cat's chasing laser pointers in her sleep.
Sole2Soul Bodywork's licensed massage therapist, Mike Greenfield, knows that it's harder to fix an injured body than it is to develop a healthy one. He learned that while working for more than five years in a health-and-fitness center and through his own certification in personal training. Mike sees his massage work as integral to his clients' overall health and well-being, whether he is helping to prevent injuries with a postgame sports massage or detoxify the body with lymphatic-drainage techniques. In addition to these and several other modalities, Mike also administers doctor-prescribed medical massages, which can help alleviate soft-tissue injuries as an alternative to medication or wearing a suit made entirely of Icy Hot.
Under the watchful eye and deft hands of Dr. Jason Van Ness, the eponymous Van Ness Chiropractic's staff of doctors and licensed massage therapists aligns spines and soothes muscles to boost the holistic health and athletic prowess of their patients. The doctor's cocaptain, Dr. Jeff Parkin, infuses the practice with an enthusiasm gained by hard-won, firsthand experience with chiropractic care as a patient. As a child, Jeff’s immune system was as strong as a starving lion’s moral resolve. Drinking an entire bottle of Pepto-Bismol a week became normal. Years later, he decided to try chiropractic and fell in love instantly, saying, “All of my allergy, digestive problems, and infections were gone.”
