La Dermique Skin Rejuvenation & Body Contouring Center’s board-certified surgeons, registered nurses, and master aestheticians keep their fingers on the pulse of emerging technologies they can potentially use in their minimally invasive treatments. Simple aesthetic procedures, such as microdermabrasion and photofacials, rejuvenate dull, aging skin, whereas Botox and dermal fillers temporarily remedy wrinkles for a smooth, supple complexion. Ultherapy, one of the center's newer treatments, sends sound waves below the skin’s surface to gently heat tissues and simulate the effects of a face-lift, all without incisions or cheek suspenders. La Dermique’s technicians also wield lasers, including Smartlipo Triplex technology, to permanently destroy fat and remove unwanted body hair and tattoos.
Licensed massage therapist Penny J Mitchell blends Eastern and Western massage techniques to address whatever physical or emotional needs her clients may have. At Bodyworks Massage and Wellness, she fine tunes the body and quiets the mind with Reflexology and relaxation Swedish massages. But with training in orthopedics and movement science, she caters to pain and injury as well—she offers comprehensive back therapy and whiplash therapy, and all bodywork can be heightened by applications of moisture wraps, heat therapy, and aromatherapy.
At Agawam Massage & Bodyworks, licensed massage therapists Kristin Held and Nichole Hines join forces to help liberate bodies from chronic pain and promote healing throughout the body. Craniosacral therapy is one of several specialties performed inside the duo's warm, private treatment rooms, relying on gentle pressure to stimulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the spine, ease restricted nerve passages, and realign bones. The team can also relax bodies with traditional Swedish massages, release chronic tension with deep-tissue massages, and keep tight muscles from being swept away by the wind during hot-stone massages.
The name is musical—“adagio” means to play “at ease”—so it’s fitting that the services at Adagio Body Works and Wellness are meant to work in harmony. Each visit begins with a consultation, during which therapists craft a treatment plan to suit your needs. These plans span from hot-stone massages and facials to mud wraps and scrubs, so clients can emphasize either hydrating their skin or recovering from trapeze accidents involving eating ribs for lunch.
The licensed massage therapists at Kneaded Bodyworks Wellness Center tailor every therapy session to target the pain, injuries, and ailments unique to each individual client. The center's myriad modalities range from acupressure treatments, which aim to stimulate key points along the body's meridians, to classic Swedish massage, which relieves muscles of anxiety, pressure, and cumbersome shoulder globes.
Soft music sets the scene at Tony Shannon’s spa, resounding off bottles of vegan lotions and oils and preparing mind and body for a full-body treat. Tony, a Massage School of East Hampton graduate, calls upon a range of rubdown modalities, from classic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to Eastern methodologies such as thai-yoga and hot-stone massage. With each pat and rub, Tony helps shoo away stress and fatigue, boost circulation, and recharge energy stores and swallowed cell phones. He can also target massage efforts to relieve specific aches and pains, including pregnancy fatigue, aching feet, painful backs, and soreness from uncomfortable work chairs or enthusiastic pig wrestling.
