Renee Hughes leads the team at Body Logic School of Esthetics with a skill set that could put a one-man band to shame—she's a master aesthetician, licensed massage therapist, certified colon hydrotherapist, Endermologie and lipomassage technician, and certified electrologist. Hughes’s team rises to meet her impressive pedigree as they dole out detoxifying wellness treatments, apply eyelash extensions and permanent makeup, and wield lasers to eradicate hair and land-speeders double-parked outside the office.
Knead to Unwind’s registered massage therapists customize their massages according to each client's needs with a blend of deep-tissue, relaxation, and trigger-point techniques. The two-storey clinic has a natural aesthetic, with walls in varying shades of green. Five private treatment rooms set the stage for relaxation with soft lighting, soothing landscapes, and low, cushioned beds that give therapists more leverage to work tension out of backs or locked safes.
Massage Athletica's certified therapists perform athletics-enhancing and injury-alleviating treatments on clients in a balance-focused therapeutic clinic setting. Patients arrive early for scheduled sessions to complete a survey detailing their treatment needs. After reviewing the form, therapists lead clients to a massage room for one-hour custom muscle-soothing sessions focused on performance enhancement or treatment of existing injuries. Tissue technicians apply modalities such as movement-based Active Release Techniques to address a wide range of soft-tissue concerns. Pre-event massages warm up muscles using fast and short strokes, while post-event massages flush out sports-related body toxins and victory-music residue through slower, longer strokes. Therapists also employ muscle-energy technique to heal strained relationships between opposite joint muscles, or apply gentle, sustained pressure to pained connective tissues in myofascial release. Specialties such as active-release techniques, kinesiotaping, and hydrotherapy may also be used in conjunction with traditional massage.
