Massage therapist Sheena O'Reilly specializes in restorative sessions. Read on to learn about her three key techniques:
Swedish Massage: focuses on relieving mental stress; uses light to medium pressure; gently strokes and kneads muscles, primarily in the shoulders and back
Deep-Tissue Massage: is a therapeutic modality that aims to speed physical recovery; can help ease acute or chronic pain from injury or overuse; leverages medium to heavy pressure to break up adhesions and tighteness
Aromatherapy Massage: combines a healing touch with soothing scents; stimulates the olfactory system to help trigger mental and physical relaxation
Though massage therapist Melanie helps her patients find peace and calm on top of a massage table, she finds her own on the peaks of Nepalese mountains. She travels worldwide—her next trip is to Colombia to learn healing rituals directly from Lakota tribes—to find the enlightenment she needs to share with others. Her signature massage style is reiki, which she works into her other modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue. She also incorporates aromatherapy oils into her sessions, such as invigorating blood orange and cajeput, which soothes sore muscles after taxing activity, like lifting dumbbells or catching a glimpse of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a swimsuit.

Elements Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, and Swedish massage to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
Products by brands such as Pharmagel, Aquage, Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, Vavoom, and Essentials jump into clients' hair and hands at Lakeside Hair Boutique and Day Spa. That's because the stylists use them during hair services, but also make them available for sale in the boutique. It's not just high-end products that refresh guests, though. It's also the hair extensions that last up to one year and stylists who re-imagine hair-scapes by using Japanese hair-straightening techniques.
Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.
