Licensed aestheticians, massage therapists, and permanent-makeup technicians work as a team to beautify clients from the forehead to the smallest toenail at Uptown Face and Body Care. Tense bodies melt under Swedish or deep-tissue massage techniques, and dull complexions disappear after infusions of vitamin C, minerals, and glycolic acid during facials and peels.
Chaba Herbal Spa & Thai Yoga Massage?s owner traveled the world to bolster her therapeutic knowledge. She began studying the art of Thai massage in Bangkok, Thailand, at the Watpro Traditional Medical School. After finishing her program, she packed her bags and journeyed to Los Angeles, where she accumulated a pet palm tree and 500 hours of massage-therapy schooling with a focus on traditional Thai massage. She uses this combination of cultural knowledge and varied techniques to treat clients with massages that fuse multiple disciplines into one soothing session. She also surrounds her clients with Thailand-influenced decor, including green plants, live flowers, and bubbling fountains that ease stress. In addition to massages, the spa also offers skin and body treatments, waxing services, and reflexology sessions.
Past a beachy front lobby filled with vibrant plant life and wire-wrought furniture, warm wooden fixtures and deep violet massage beds await. It's there that owner Nina Wang and her staff perform their specialty treatments, from targeted facials to muscle-healing bodywork. Each skin care treatment is informed by a one-on-one consultation, helping customize the procedure and give skin the best shot at looking flawless. The rest of the body benefits too, as Thai yoga massage and hot-stone massage modalities are kneaded deep into sinews to release trapped tension or that song that's been trying to get out for days.
During 8th Wonder Spa's signature reflexology sessions, guests lounge in cushy recliners as they look out through the spa's windows at an ocean of clear aqua-green water and trained reflexologists work on relieving tension through their feet. Other services allow for the same level of indulgence, including a foot soak featuring a wooden tub of Chinese-herb?infused water and head-to-fingernail massages that instill relaxation with novel sensations. Aromatic massage lotion enhances massages, during which fully clothed guests recline onto a table as skilled therapists activate pressure points and birthmarks all over the body with gentle tapping.
Whether clients are dealing with back pain, bad posture, or the aches associated with pregnancy, the massage therapist at PerfecTouch Therapy has a remedy. That's because the therapist's repertoire of muscle-kneading techniques varies greatly, unlike a golden retriever's wardrobe. In addition to standard maneuvers such as Swedish massage, the stress-tamer also offers hot-stone, deep-tissue, and foot-focused treatments.
At Healing Touch Therapeutic Massage, fountains trickle and soft music fills the air. The staff adds flourishes such as these to ensure that treatments are an experience, rather than a task. Therapists confer with guests to select from a number of different massage modalities to address whatever issue a client may be facing. They can help you with a wide range of ailments, from stress and a knotty back to strain caused by trying to sand out the knots in a wooden sculpture of yourself. For an additional fee, Healing Touch’s staffers will take their therapeutic hands to you with their mobile massage services.
