Mark Lohmann began formally training in bodywork—starting with Active Isolated Stretching—before opening Planet Massage on Las Olas Boulevard in 2005.
After almost a decade at that location, Planet Massage relocated to a historical home in the SOLO district that has more than three times the space of the original location. But the ample space isn't the only upgrade; Planet Massage's new urban oasis is even more equipped to relax clients with its lush outdoor bamboo and mango gardens and free parking. Plus, the house is located on a tree-lined neighborhood street, blocks from the beach and within view of the Downtown skyline and any monsters trying to destroy it. All of this has not gone unnoticed by customers; TripAdvisor awarded Planet Massage with the Certificate of Excellence in 2014.
The new spa still soothes bodies with medically based bodywork that often combines multiple modalities and products, as well as with foot massages, heat packs, and pain-relieving Biofreeze treatments. But it also has added a variety of new pampering treatments to take place in the new treatment rooms.
Some spa services—tanning and paraffin-wax dips, for example—were never meant to be combined. Others complement each other swimmingly, as the staff of Spatopia Massage knows. One such ingenious synthesis is their Angel Touch facial, which incorporates massage techniques such as acupressure and lymphatic drainage to guard against headaches and anxiety.
Those looking for a massage on its own browse styles from Swedish to reflexology. Eastern and Western methods unite on the menu, as therapists can target the body's energy meridians with shiatsu manipulation, or administer both Swedish and deep-tissue kneads during The Betty massage. Add-ons enhance appointments with hot stones, hot towels, or an abbreviated reiki session.
Spatopia's facials combat skin conditions such as teen blemishes and signs of aging, often incorporating natural extracts to rejuvenate complexions. For example, the anti-aging facial combines lemon, grape seed, red-wine extract, a blueberry moisturizer, and a chocolate-wasabi mask—born out of a failed dessert-sushi recipe. At Spatopia's Symphony location, the service list expands to cover nail care and waxing.
A visitor to Diamante Day Spa won?t be hurting for options: between the spa?s 20 different massage styles and 18 distinct facials, clients could be forgiven for having a hard time knowing which treatments would benefit them most. That?s why it?s fortunate that holistic practitioner and spa founder Tara Darlene Diamant? Canhos is not only a skilled massage therapist, but also an experienced lifestyle coach and spiritual consultant. Canhos and her staff utilize this experience to help clients devise the perfect array of treatments. Specialty services encompass mainly Eastern holistic healing practices?chakra balancing, yoga nidra meditation, Tibetan reflexology?which is why it?s fitting that the spa is also home to a zen lounge area complete with fresh fruit, organic herbal teas, and no howler monkeys.
After working in spas for two decades, French-educated massage therapist and paramedical esthetician Chrys Straiton founded Studio Blu Spa, envisioning a tranquil retreat where she could continue to advance her skills while pampering clients with facials, massages, and skincare services.
When selecting the team for her new spa, Chrys deferred to experience—each of her licensed nail technicians, for example, has roughly a decade of practice. During microdermabrasions, back facials, and other skincare treatments, Chrys and her staff wield G.M. Collin products derived from natural botanical extracts and finely blended teddy-bear stuffing. G.M. Collin was one of the first brands to integrate collagen into its formulas, and Studio Blu’s devotion to the skincare line evinces both the spa’s openness to innovation and its results-oriented approach.
Aesthetician and owner Elena uses her skills from training in Romania and more than 30 years working in Manhattan to help beautify clients’ skin at her elegant, European-styled spa. Marble-clad walls and chateau-evoking sconces set the stage for seaweed wraps and sea-salt scrubs that help tighten and invigorate skin, along with glycolic-acid treatments and facials. Her european facial does not involve tattoos of random French, German, and Spanish words; rather, it includes a steaming with chamomile herbs and a natural vegetable-peel exfoliant to leave skin glowing and more youthful.
