Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.

Koko FitClub’s automated personal-training system rockets both men and women toward fitness goals with 30-minute custom workouts that incorporate cardio and strength training. An initial consultation determines fitness levels and baseline measurements, which Koko’s computerized equipment uses to design a tailored workout plan that precisely measures the weight, pace, and rest time appropriate for each exerciser.
The Koko machines guide exercisers through each workout and adapt as the user’s fitness needs change in order to constantly challenge the body. Designed by professional trainers, workouts maximize the body’s lean-muscle mass, which can boost metabolism and help fight off disease by challenging viruses to kickboxing matches. Exercisers can track their shrinking waistlines and swelling muscles online by analyzing workout scores and comparing individual fitness levels to the Koko FitClub community.
