Genice Chantel Brown wasn't always sure what she was going to do with her life, but she knew she wanted to make peoples' lives better. She eventually graduated in 2003 from the Baltimore School of Massage, and decided to take her talents to the streets with her own mobile spa service. With a slew of luxuriating perks in tow, she travels to her clients' homes to soothe weary muscles with relaxing massages.
While relieving minor aches with the light-moderate pressure of Swedish massage, she might add the stress-relieving properties of aromatherapy. After performing a deep-tissue massage—calling upon her forearms, elbows, and fingers to vigorously manipulate muscle tissue—she might exfoliate the client's skin with body scrubs. She also fosters relaxation by placing smooth, heated stones on the body's stress-filled regions, and offers couple's massage, helping pairs bond over an activity other than brushing each other's teeth. No matter the modality or enhancements, she always creates a warm and tranquil environment in which to better her clients' overall well-being.
Serenity and tranquility for each client: that's the goal of licensed massage therapist Terell Spencer, so it's no surprise she named her massage therapy business Serenity's Oasis. Massage services help reduce clients' stress and muscle tension and also boost circulation.
Within Soul Relaxed Massage Spa, registered massage therapist Tierney Mitchell makes relaxation and health her life's work. After clients arrive, Ms. Mitchell chats with them to discuss possible treatments and pinpoint problematic conditions, such as injuries or spring-loaded limbs. She then uses techniques such as Swedish, myofascial release, and deep tissue to knead knotted muscles into states of relaxation. To enhance treatments, Ms. Mitchell can fill the massage room with scents of aromatherapy or employ hot stones that cause muscles to melt.
Heavenly Hands Massage Ministries’ owner, Charnette K. Davis, has diligently worked to master the art of massage, as her local and national accreditations can attest. She’s also a certified reflexologist and is CPR/first-aid certified to boot. Proficient in everything from Swedish to hot-stone massage, Charnette maximizes health benefits by customizing standard massages with additional techniques drawn from her vast repertoire.
Massage therapy is used to assuage a wide spectrum of symptoms. It can relieve muscular tension and pain, promote circulation, and release the mental stress that can lead to physical problems. At Addicted 2 Touch 4 Life, an experienced therapist consults with every client to get a sense of his or her concerns and goals. The outcome? A massage that's completely customized and a dramatic set of results.
Paradise Salon and Day Spa offers visitors a chance to take a vacation from everyday stress with a menu of full-body beautification services. Dry hair can take a permanent hiatus thanks to the salon's intense haircare treatment, which nourishes parched strands with a formula rich in plant and silk proteins. Dry skin is likewise tackled with a hydrating and brightening caviar facial or an aromatherapy body wrap that swaddles skin in cotton sheets after brushing it with soothing essential oils. If a change in scenery won't fit into your hectic schedule, change what you see in the mirror instead by booking a complete makeup makeover or sprucing up lifeless strands with luminous highlights. Waxing services provide all the fun of getting ready for the beach without the itchy sand or annoying sunshine, and mani-pedis extend sandal season year-round to show off colorful coats of regular, french-style, or shellac polish.
