“The "jelly" foot massage was great! The additive to the soaking water turns it thick, and it's a very relaxing sensation, then they add another packet and [the] "jelly" dissolves completely. Nice facility, good foot massage.” – Josephine S.

 

“I have been to many foot massage places, and this one by far is the very best. They even massage your head while your feet are soaking, unlike the others. I have been back since using the Groupon and will continue to do so!” – Carolyn A.


“OMG! I most definitely will be back! The staff is very professional and attentive. I came just to get a foot massage but ended up getting a full body massage and I feel so relaxed.” – Chelsea J.

LeHua Spa

Live bamboo, murals of swimming koi, and dragon statues lend a distinctly Eastern atmosphere to LeHua Spa’s interior. Though the decor follows Oriental influences, the services span both hemispheres. Therapists perform Swedish massages to soothe sore muscles alongside reflexology treatments to relieve energy blockages throughout the body. To boost relaxation efforts, the traditional sauna cranks up the temperature, inducing healthful sweating while easing pain in muscles and joints. And, when not soothing muscles, the spa's staff cleanses skin using a variety of scrubs—including rice bran, pecan shells, and ground coffee—that exfoliate, smooth, and hydrate skin.

Four Massage Styles

 

Maybe you’re new to massage, or maybe you haven’t had anything besides a Swedish for awhile—either way, choosing from all the modalities some spas have to offer can make your head spin. To help you decode those massage styles, we’ve got a rundown of the most popular, to help you decide what to choose at your next session.

 

Swedish Massage

  • How they do it: strokes are long and gliding, kneading and circular motions are gentle; each movement is geared towards simple relaxation
  • What you get out of it: relief from superficial tension; circulation boost
  • Best for: massage newbies or those who need mild tension relief

 

Deep-Tissue Massage

 

  • How they do it: strokes and kneading are more intense; each movement is geared toward releasing deep-seated tightness
  • What you get out of it: chronic tension relief, increased range of motion
  • Best for: those with tension deep in the muscles; chronic pain

 

Shiatsu Massage

  • How they do it: strong strokes, with the therapist also using elbows, knees, and sometimes feet
  • What you get out of it: improved circulation and oxytocin production which provides stress release
  • Best for: those curious about Eastern massage and in need of relief from serious tension

 

Trigger-Point Massage

  • How they do it: strokes similar to deep tissue but target to specific areas, instead of chronic tension in general
  • What you get out of it: the easing of pain and tension from issues such as sciatica, plantar fasciitis, and stiff joints
  • Best for: those who have any of the above ailments—and who like pain that’s so bad it’s good
