Q&A with the Owner
Sometimes the little things make all the difference. Do you bake any supplementary services into your main services?
Our massages last a full 60 minutes.
Time is not incorporated into your appointment time for set-up.
What are some of your most popular services? What do you think clients love them so much?
Each massage is truly custom.
We do not use the same cookie-cutter massage for all our clients.
Hands of Essence’s Renata Jones knows that pregnancy is difficult on women’s bodies, causing everything from foot pain to backaches. That's why the licensed massage therapist specializes in prenatal massage. Renata uses a variety of other massage techniques—including reflexology, deep-tissue pressure, and gentle Swedish strokes—to alleviate pain and promote circulation. She can also incorporate soothing hot stones and exfoliating sugar scrubs to ensure clients leave as relaxed as possible.
Sometimes a spa visit means a day of beauty, other times it's designed to be a blissful escape from life's stresses. At Nature's Escape Spa, though, it's both. Regardless of whether guests are there for a soothing Swedish massage, a gel manicure, or a facial, the tranquil spa environment makes for a relaxing visit. It's also up to each person if a relaxing environment means complete silence or soft music. A variety of massages are available in addition to skincare services.
At Massaging Palms, a licensed massage therapist quells aches, pains, and stress with calming bodywork treatments. Clients can kick back and relax as the therapist performs Swedish massages, which help foster calmness and feelings of well-being, or deep-tissue massages, which target chronic pain and muscle tension. In addition to these two therapies, the therapist offers prenatal massages for expectant mothers, sports massages for those with active lifestyles, and neuromuscular massages for those suffering from soft-tissue injuries.
At Spa Revive, the team revives clients with everything from a 24-karat gold facials to full-on spa parties. Solo spa-goers aren't restricted to pampering with precious metals; they can also opt for seaweed back scrubs, custom massages, and more. The spa party, meanwhile, lets friends sip wine and relax in snow white robes and slippers.
Amy Robertson began her studies at the Heartwood Institute, where she earned a dual degree in advanced massage therapy and somatic studies. But her education didn't end there. In fact, it didn't end at all—Amy continues to immerse herself in massage and healing arts, staying abreast of new techniques for soothing muscles and minds.
The span of her efforts is visible on Pura Vida Massage Therapy's service menu. From Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massages to Thai and Swedish massage, Amy's specialties reflect the global reaches of her studies. And then there's the Reiki sessions, the prenatal massages, and the sports massages, perfect for athletes trying to relieve overworked limbs or fold down to baseball-card size. In addition to her massage services, Amy also conducts mind-body coaching sessions for stress reduction and better balance.
