At Gentle Illumination Group, reiki master LeJoy Rothe and her humble team of healers untangle muscle-knots and melt away stress using custom therapeutic-massage techniques. Using long, flowing strokes to improve circulation, custom massages can help to alleviate lower-back pain, release pain-pummeling endorphins, and dump out lymphatic buildup and old rubber-band balls. In the midst of the massage, pamper hardworking muscle sheaths with an exfoliating back treatment, which removes old skin cells and cleanses backsides of accumulated debris. Pre-massage, a dip in soothing paraffin wax can soften parched arm paws, leaving them pliant enough to make three-dimensional shadow puppets.
Open houses provide an opportunity to meet and speak with resident massage therapists and give visitors a chance to peruse LeJoy's handmade perfumes, moisturizers, and sweet-smelling soaps.
Le Joy Rothe believes in practicing a holistic wellness philosophy at her spa, where makeup artistry and body wraps meet the healing properties of reiki and aromatherapy. Devoted to nature-based products, including her own brand, the certified aromatherapist calls upon an exhaustive supply of ingredients so guests can tone their skin, find relief from headaches, and foil canine detectives. In the unique, urban loft space, clients receive relaxing treatments from the experienced staff. A boutique furbishes home collections with relaxing treatments that pamper clients outside the spa.
