The massage therapists at Spa Heaven have a sensible solution for continually improving their techniques: they practice on each other. By drawing on that expert focus group, the staff has mastered the skills to soothe clients' bodies and minds with a unique blend of more than 15 modalities of Eastern and Western massage. But along with touch, the team also appeals to the other senses, filling rooms with the scents of aromatherapy oils and incense.
Spa Heaven's staff goes above and beyond treating aches with a slew of skin-rejuvenating body wraps. They concoct the compounds in their wraps from organic coffee in the organic green coffee body wrap, tropical fruit in the de-aging tropical fruit body wrap, and the finest mud pies in the aromatic dead sea mud wrap.
In Greek mythology, ambrosia was a food of the gods, rumored to convey longevity and wellness to anyone who sampled it. Fortunately for the mortals of Houston, the licensed massage therapist at Ambrosian Touch has found a way to replicate the benefits of the legendary snack. Along with deep-tissue and Swedish sessions, her extensive menu of massage treatments includes some unexpected treatments. Test out the bracing ice massage, full-body Thai massage, or lomi lomi, a comprehensive bodywork style that originated in Hawaii.
Besides English and pig latin, French is spoken in more countries than any other language. That's why Houston French provides group and one-on-one classes to verse everyone from students and businessman to those taking a vacation in the finer points of the French language. During lessons, clients can learn basic points, such as conjugation and vocabulary, or tackle more-comprehensive tutorials, such as inflection and how to properly tilt a beret.
The pampering experts at Emerald Isle Day Spa employ an arsenal of bodywork and skincare services that soothe muscles and revitalize complexions. Well versed in both Eastern and Western massage modalities, they target specific points on the hands and feet during reflexology sessions and stretch out tense muscles during active Thai massages. Classic Swedish massages knead away stress with smooth, gentle strokes, whereas more intense deep-tissue massage delves into the lower levels of tissue to untie chronic knots. Aestheticians cleanse and correct skin using G.M. Collin skincare products, some of which are derived from marine extracts, never submarine ones.
Renu Massage has a team of therapists, each of whom brings a unique specialty to the massage table. Therapist Suzanne, for instance, favors medical massage for those suffering from injury, but she also uses relaxation techniques to help bring a mind-body balance. Scott also specializes in medical massage, using trigger-point therapy to dissolve chronic tension. Kelli specializes in working with runners who need extensive leg and shoe work, and Shondi can help expectant mothers find relief from aches and pains. This varied expertise means every client can find relief at Renu, as therapists draw from a wide selection of modalities that range from Swedish and hot stone to sports and deep tissue.
At Wellspring Asian Massage & Skin Care, massage therapists combine the strengths of Eastern and Western massages in their treatments.
