At Sea Breeze Massage, owner and certified massage therapist Leslie Ray Eddington believes that relaxation is just as important to health as exercise and nutrition. She isn't alone in believing this—many studies have shown that bodywork can yield results that range from improved joint flexibility and stress reduction to lower blood pressure and faster healing times. And as the former official therapist for the Norfolk Admirals, and other elite athletes, she sees firsthand how beneficial her therapeutic strokes can be on even the most athletic bodies.
When she's not working out tension knots on goaltenders or celebrities, such as Toby Keith and Trace Adkins, she shares her talents with the community, both on the road (via mobile services) and at her brick-and-mortar studio. But regardless if she's working in her calming, music-equipped treatment room or at a customer's own house, she works to address each client's unique issues with a variety of modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, reflexology, and sports. And to make treatments even more relaxing, she can accompany them with soothing add-ons such as paraffin dips and spa-style facials.
Licensed massage therapist JoAnne Stevens believes that mind, body, and spirit all contribute to wellness and deserve equal attention. To that end, the owner of Divine Healing Massage & Spa Therapy can use massage to focus on singular complaints, be they sore backs, stiff necks, or worried minds. But she can also give attention to more nuanced factors, whether it's stress contributing to a stiff neck or range of motion problems. Her customized massages can include a blend of techniques, including Swedish and trigger point massage, and she'll also add soothing extras such as hot towel therapy or heated basalt stones to melt tension in particularly tricky trouble spots.
The meteoric growth of Massage Envy has led to more than 800 spa locations and a healthy share of limelight from printed media buzz to promotions on
The Ellen DeGeneres Show and
The Doctors . Its experts have kneaded more than 50 million backs using modalities that range from the gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Although the spa treats a wealth of clients, each Massage Envy session is personalized to individual needs. While indulging in prenatal, hot-stone, or trigger-point-therapy massages, clients can also request the soothing mint and rosemary essential oils of aromatherapy or the addition of warming and cooling products that help decrease inflammation and ease pain.
In addition to staffing massage therapists, the spas employ skincare experts who wield Murad products for four kinds of facials. Clients can treat sensitive skin to mild exfoliation or opt for anti-aging facials with glycolic acid before attempting to order off the kids’ menu at a diner.
