Massage therapist Karla Hernandez believes the best way to feel beautiful is not through intensive beauty treatments, but through good health and wellness practices. At her spa, Health & Beauty for Life, clients feel better about themselves after exercising, getting regular massages, and meeting with the acupuncturist.
Hernandez's staff guides clients toward health and beauty during pulse-pumping Zumba classes, flexibility-boosting yoga classes, and muscle-toning personal-training sessions. Massages then help work out muscle kinks and ease aches.

At Eastern Sun Therapy, a committed team of spa specialists and licensed massage therapists help clients feel refreshed inside and out. They offer a wide array of relaxation-focused wellness and cosmetic treatments. Infrared body wraps provide all the toxin-leaching benefits of a sauna without the intense humidity, heat, or towel-snapping.
Where the health and beauty experts at Eastern Sun Therapy really shine, however, is their massage treatments. Hours of soothing Swedish effleurage kneads calm both body and mind, and the compression and stretching techniques of Thai massage work out kinks and soreness in targeted problem areas. They also offer back walk massages for a unique and healing twist, and deep tissue treatments that work to address muscle soreness or tightness.
Your feet are soaking in a warm footbath while flower petals float on the surface of the water, giving off tropical fragrances. Or maybe you’re lying side by side with a loved one as you both relax to an aromatherapy foot scrub and full-body couples massage. Or perhaps you're getting your shoulders massaged as you rethink your decision to play Sisyphus in the town play.
These are just a few examples of the stress-relieving treatments you can experience at Su Massage Therapy & Chi Wellness Retreat, where therapists use both ancient and modern techniques with a singular goal: well being. They manage pain with Chinese herbal treatments and hot footbaths, as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that induce feelings of deep relaxation and target sources of discomfort and tension.
