As its name implies, High Maintenance Day Spa & Salon strives to meet the beauty demands of its most discriminating clientele with a comprehensive array of relaxing treatments. The spa’s stylists, nail technicians, tanners, and massage therapists continue to carry out the mission set forth by the Crims, who founded the spa in 2006 with the vision of a retreat from life’s hectic day-to-day routine. Indeed, the only stresses to be found amid the salon’s soft-hued tiffany-blue walls are those that arise when choosing which of the many services to indulge in. Couples massages make for romantic and relaxing experiences, waxing removes unwanted fuzz, and spray tans prepare bodies for playing hide-and-seek amid bronze garden sculptures. Before snipping their first locks or untying their first muscle knots, the staff establishes a relationship with each customer through friendly chitchat and an informal consultation.
R.E.M.Y. Elite Massage Therapy After experiencing the cathartic effects of massage therapy firsthand, Myra Jones decided to devote her time to helping others to rid themselves of physical and mental tension. As the licensed muscle mender at R.E.M.Y. Elite Massage Therapy, Myra creates a peaceful oasis filled with relaxing music, soothing scents, and mirages of cheerful bosses. All massage treatments take place on a freshly made, temperature-controlled bed, and sessions may help to treat a range of maladies. Myra coaxes wound-up muscles into relaxing with strategically placed hot stones and targets chronic tension with concentrated kneads in deep-tissue sessions. Smooth, gliding strokes disperse stress and refrigerator magnets during Swedish massages, leaving bodies calm and rejuvenated.
Licensed massage therapist Tina Lee helps clients regain balance, physical comfort, and spiritual fulfillment one massage stroke at a time. She’s been in the field for more than 12 years, building up a repertoire of bodywork modalities that combat stress and physical discomfort. At ChakraWorks, she channels her healing powers through Swedish, trigger-point, reflexology, and hot-stone massage, inducing a sense of calm and well-being in clients and massage tables alike.
Licensed massage therapist Robin Hightower eases muscular tension with a relaxing compilation of massage services tailored to fit each client's unique needs and lifestyle. A 90-minute deep-tissue massage tackles subterranean tension, tightness, and pain and addresses specific pain concerns, such as localized injuries and shin bones that refuse to admit any connection to the knee bones. Lie amidst warm lighting and soothing green walls as weighty strokes forcefully caress maligned musculature, reinstating equilibrium and restoring structural integrity lost after years of leaving your back crumpled in the hamper. An elongating series of stretches fortifies more remote crevasses, improving range of motion in unapproachable joints, including hip flexors. New clients should plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete brief intake and health forms, or fill them out beforehand.
Natural ingredients play a big part in the spa services at Butterfly Essential Wellness Spa. For example, seaweed is used for body wraps, green tea for body masks, and honey almond and eucalyptus for foot and leg treatments. The most in-demand ingredient, however, is the shea butter. Without it, the staff wouldn't be able to defy friction during massages or slick the ground during floor-hockey games in the parking lot.
Acupuncture has been effectively used for the treatment of back pain, headaches and migraines, neck stiffness, and sports injuries. However, acupuncture goes way beyond pain relief. Many people find acupuncture to aid in: anxiety, insomnia, weight control, digestive problems, menstrual cramps, infertility and much more.
