Inova Physical Therapy Centers is part of a non-profit comprehensive health-care network. The network provides physical therapy across more than a dozen locations, which provide varied forms of physical therapy, from aquatic therapy and dry needling to massage therapy. Each center is staffed with licensed massage therapists with medical and orthopedic experience that can help address specific targets with therapeutic massage, such as the neck, knees, hips, as well as assist with therapy goals. The medical massage program can be tailored to the individual needs of their clients and has treatments appropriate to for pain relief and injury recovery. In addition to varied methods, Inova Physical Therapy Centers also offers numerous specialities, including aquatic and massage therapy, orthopedic and sports medicine rehabilitation, balance rehabilitation, hand rehabilitation, and women's rehabilitation and therapeutic treatments.
Lavender Retreat Wellness Club takes the word "retreat" seriously. The spa itself is a pleasant spot to retreat to, decorated with lacy curtains, cool green walls, and fresh flowers. However, the team also organizes relaxing retreats for their clients—in the literal, board-a-plane sense of the word—in peaceful, beachy locales. The club will go to unconventional lengths to give clients a break from their everyday stresses, though it stops short of entering every overworked client in the witness protection program.
Most of the time, however, the staff gives clients a break the way most spas do—with a variety of relaxing treatments. The massage therapists work in Western modalities, such as Swedish and deep-tissue, as well as Eastern ones, including cupping and acupressure. The acupuncturists, meanwhile, facilitate energy balance within the body with hairlike needles.
A team of aestheticians also tends skin with facials infused with vitamin C and pure oxygen.
The certified therapists at Heart and Hand Therapeutic Massage understand that some bodies respond to certain treatments better than others. Keeping this in mind, they offer everything from gentle Swedish techniques to firm deep-tissue strokes. They even have a specialty raindrop therapy designed to align the electrical fields of the nervous system by dripping essential oils across the spine. Heart and Hand’s services, however, extend far beyond the spine. Life coach Lori McGhee offers emotional support, career guidance, and tips on how to improve your health by sleeping better.
Nestled in the newly opened Springfield Town Center, a team of licensed massage therapists flexes traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques alongside other other specialized modalities. From reflexology and acupressure to holistic shiatsu and Asian Tui Na bodywork, Springfield Therapeutic Massage’s services relieve stress and ease muscle tension in a warm, relaxing environment.
From heated stones to long, flowing strokes, Mingling Massage Spa's therapist has numerous ways of alleviate muscle tension and soreness. During deep-tissue and sports massages, the therapist targets specific problem areas, whereas during Swedish massages, they cover nearly all areas of the body. Their shiatsu massages use energy pathways and stretching techniques to transport clients to a meditative state in which the mind, body, and spirit are all distracted from the Internet.
In addition to body treatments, Mingling's menu features reflexology treatments, which stimulate the body through manipulations of the feet, and traditional foot massages.
A massage is more than just relaxing. Aside from the well-known benefits of easing aching muscles and sore joints, massage therapy can also alleviate migraines, bad digestion, and other, similarly elusive pains.
Massage Therapy Works takes every aspect of massage therapy seriously, offering Chinese traditional reflexology, hot-stone, shiatsu, and deep-tissue massages—depending, of course, on each client's needs. And while the massage alone is more than enough to relax, the spa's staff never hesitates to offer perks such as a complimentary cup of hot tea.
