Led by massage therapist and colon hydrotherapist Kathleen Leslie, the natural-care practitioners at Pura Vida Wellness Spa specialize in pharmaceutical-free healing. Services include detoxifying therapies such as infrared-sauna sessions and several massage modalities and medical-grade skin care and waxing along with ionic foot detoxes. Their bread-and-butter service, though, is colonic irrigation, which Leslie's team uses to address numerous ailments, such as bloating, migraines, and insomnia.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
The yogis, bodywork experts, and energy healers at Light In Shining Armor Yoga and Massage Studio help put clients of all ages and abilities on the path to wellness. Their trademarked yoga style, Surya Namaskar, combines ancient teachings with modern health goals and can be modified to suit children, seniors, and those recuperating from injuries or the Andromeda Strain. Massages take a customized approach as well, with each kneading session addressing the unique physical and emotional needs of each client. Meanwhile, pranic healing and reiki sessions aim to improve well-being by harnessing the healing energy of the universe.
Whatever maladies clients are suffering from, the staff at Tampa Bay Bodyworks wants to help its visitors achieve their wellness goals. To do so, therapists specialize in various modalities of massage, ranging from deep tissue for tight muscles to gentle bodywork for relaxation. They also offer therapeutic rehabilitation for clients recovering from injury, zeroing in on muscular and skeletal conditions stemming from auto accidents, sports mishaps, and work-related aches.
Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services.

The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
