When devising Hands-of-Faith's service menu, owner Z. Faith Darby wanted to account for all the ailments a client might experience that would lead them to seek a massage. To that end, she made sure to cover the big three treatments: relaxation, therapeutic, and medical. The relaxation massage is a straightforward Swedish massage that entails light-to-medium pressure to combat stress and worry. The therapeutic massage is more specific—the therapist curates a session using deep-tissue and trigger-point techniques in order to relieve chronic pain and symptoms of injury. The medical massage is anatomically precise and patient-specific, and targets physician-prescribed ailments such as whiplash and sciatica. These, in addition to raindrop therapy and hot river rock massage, make the service menu comprehensive and able to accommodate clients with a wide assortment of complaints.
The healing doesn't end with massage, though. Z. Faith is also a certified hypnotherapist, and Hands-of-Faith offers hypnotherapy to unlock that box in the subconscious where bad habits dwell. They also offer reiki and Bellanina face-lifts, an anti-aging treatment that incorporate the tenets of acupressure to help tone the face and render it younger looking. Z. Faith sees healing as a social responsibility and so she dedicates her free time to volunteering at The Edwards Hospital Cancer Center in Naperville.
At Salternative Spa, the staff creates a healing sanctuary with an Earth-friendly philosophy, as evidenced by their toxin-free soaps, natural essential oils, and organic cotton towels and bathrobes. The spa's signature healing treatment, halotherapy, places clients in a chamber of breathable salt particles designed to act as a natural decongestant, improve immune system function, and decrease headaches. But that's not all the spa offers—there's also sensory-deprivation sessions in a flotation tank, yoga and meditation classes, an infrared sauna, and reflexology and acupressure therapy.
