Q&A with Michael Raphael, Therapist and Business Manager
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Clients love our deep-tissue massage because we go deeper than most therapists, we include stretching, and we guide you, in a tranquil voice, to take long deep breaths and use the incredible power of your mind to relax your body. In this way, the session is like a guided-meditation [session] in which you become a more active participant in your own therapy. Some clients who have suffered for years with chronic pain are amazed by the relief they get from neuromuscular realignment, which analyzes your musculoskeletal imbalances and stretches the core muscles that are pulling your body out of alignment.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We are literally a mom-and-pop operation. [Roxanne and I have been] married for 17 years and are both licensed massage therapists. Roxanne is also a licensed skincare specialist, and [I am] also a chi gong instructor.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
It started back in 2006, when [I] got laid off from [my] cubicle job and decided to get into a manual-labor career. Having always had a natural talent for massage, [I] returned to school and became licensed, initially in Dallas, Texas. Roxanne, after years of lessons from [me], also went to massage school and became licensed in 2008. [We] moved to Miami and got Florida licenses in 2011.
Inner peace and outer beauty hold equal weight at Contour Medical Spa. Inside private, soundproof treatment rooms, licensed massage therapists remedy ailments of the mind and the body—the former through relaxing Swedish, hot-stone, and couples massage, and the latter via sports and prenatal massage. By way of the center’s ultrasonic-cavitation treatments, which are slimming treatments that liquefy fat cells, the staff help clients achieve their ideal body weight and assume tight, toned bodies. Massage helps yield relaxed muscles and nerves, and the ultrasonic-cavitation treatments result in as much as six inches of body-fat loss per session. Together, they bring mind and body into harmony, improving well-being and self-confidence.
At The Spa at Doral, clients can be pampered with a wide array of luxurious and personalized services. In the sprawling, 48,000-square-foot spa's 33 treatment rooms, guests unwind as they receive one of eight styles of massages, or facials that firm aging skin with microcurrent or harness the antioxidants of caviar. Mani-pedis feature luxurious, unusual touches, such as hydrating rose gel and a foot scrub made of ground olive pits—and the Skin Soother body treatment softens and heals dried skin with the regenerative properties of lavender, peppermint, and rose. Clients receive complimentary self parking and have access to the locker rooms, fitness center, and the resort's four pools.
