Rejuvenation Spa and Wellness Center’s body buffers combat daily stresses in earth-toned treatment rooms softly lit by candles and lamplight. Technicians spend about 30 minutes trimming cuticles and filing nails to prep keratin canvases for a coat of color to rival the red of fire engines or the blue of cherries seen through tinted windows. The firm pressure of the deep-tissue massage infiltrates deep layers of muscle to help alleviate the pain that results from injury, misalignment, or playing body-Tetris on the bus. Massage therapists continuously communicate with customers during the treatment, ensuring that they can effectively untie muscle knots without causing too much discomfort.
Terry's Massage Wellness Center
Terry Hunter, SCMT, the owner of Terry's Massage Wellness Center, caters his massages to the needs to the client in front of him. A diverse roster of 10 massage modalities allows Hunter to pull from a wide range of techniques—the rolling and kneading of Swedish massage helps ease stress from the body, whereas shiatsu massage focuses on pressure points and the body's flow of energy. Rejuvenation also offers ladies' night out packages, combining the therapeutic massages with facials, mani-pedis, and waxing.
