Optimal Massage’s certified muscle menders dedicate their handiwork and soothesmithing to the total health and wellness of clients. Opt for a 60-minute deep-tissue corrective therapeutic massage to address any deep-seated emotions or lost toys afflicting the skeletal musculature and to absorb a deeper, more rigorous massage experience. During the massage, therapists target the chronic tension located beneath the layers of muscle, connective tissue, and flooring tile that make up the average person's body. Combining slow, deep strokes with intense pressure, this targeted treatment is perfect for addressing problems such as chronic pain, stiffness, sports injuries, and repetitive strain.
The knowledgeable therapists at Viva Massage draw on one of the most ancient forms of therapy—massage—in lieu of other older therapies, such as smashing vases. Each specialist can help soothe aches using an array of modalities including Swedish, deep-tissue, prenatal, and sports massages, which they perform inside minimalistic rooms with gray-green walls. Viva Massage’s therapists can even bring their holistic craft to parties, events, and businesses—they offer on-location chair massage treatments.

Timeless Sage's holistic healers tune the mind, body, and spirit with spa treatments that incorporate Chinese therapy techniques. During massages, therapists coat clients in botanical-infused GP Deva skincare products, then work over backs using the techniques of Swedish, deep-tissue, and other modalities. These sessions can also incorporate jade-stone therapy, during which smooth green orbs glide over the back, refreshing the body with alternating bursts of heat and cold, like a shower set to shuffle. Certified lash specialists plump up lid fringe with customized synthetic or mink lashes, which are individually bonded onto the original lashes. The center even treats nonhuman stress, performing equestrian bodywork based on a gentle, intuitive technique known as the Masterson Method.
OhLaLa Massage owner Said Ait Alla, who has practiced massage therapy in several countries, leads his team of co-ed practitioners in the relaxing art of bodywork.

They also administer body scrubs that exfoliate and cleanse skin, boosting circulation more quickly and safely than strapping a jet engine to a Ferris wheel.
