As the owner of Luxurious Essentials, Demetria understands the plight of busy professionals. She and her team of therapists do their best to work around hectic schedules with services ranging from a succinct 10-minute chair massage to an extravagant 90 minutes atop a warm massage table. Her unique style of Swedish massage utilizes traditional light strokes as well as deep stretching of the limbs to help to alleviate joint pain. Therapists lubricate each massage with a liberal application of olive oil, which soaks into skin without the potential allergens or glow-in-the-dark side effects found with many moisturizers.
The soothing scents of lavender and soft, earthy tones greet clients as they enter the spa. In private rooms, guests unwind from busy lives while listening to the strains of Asian music and ambient noise such as running water, chirping birds, and the angry protests from stress as therapists massage it away.
Schooled in styles such as Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal, Natural Touch Massage's network of local massage therapists work out all manner of ache. The team soothes muscles and boosts flexibility during 30-, 60-, or 90-minute single or couples treatments. Situated throughout Detroit, the therapists' mobile services set up convenient sessions in homes, offices, or hotel rooms. They also host guests at the Natural Touch studio, where complementary muffins, bagels, tea, and juices await visitors before and after appointments. Along with massages, aestheticians beautify patrons with a slew of spa services such as facials, manicures, and foot scrubs, available for individual customers or large groups such as wedding parties or biker gangs that don’t feel as pretty as they used to.

The highly trained therapists at EB3 Therapeutic Massage improve range of motion in squeaky human hinges through specialized bodywork sessions that range from gentle prenatal massages to intense sports massages. In private rooms, muscle whisperers soothe chronic aches with the firm pressure of deep-tissue rubdowns and ease overall stress with the long, flowing strokes of the Swedish modality. Hot-stone massages call on the heat-retention powers of natural rocks to promote blood circulation and reduce tension. Aromatherapy enhances sessions and makes clients feel as though they're snuggled in a field of flowers and docile bumblebees.
At Loose Massage Therapy Plus, every massage—whether it's a Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, reflexology, pregnancy, or trigger-point massage—is a hot-stone massage. It's also an aromatherapy massage. That's because owner and certified massage therapist J'nai Porter augments each session with circulation-increasing hot stones and stress-reducing aromatherapy at no additional charge. Porter's generosity only improves her massage therapy's already ample benefits, which may include alleviated pain and deflated anxiety.
At some point or another, everyone needs a getaway. A Way of Escape Massage offers just such a place—both at their minimalist studio space in Livonia and at locations of their client's choosing with their mobile services. The spa’s therapists are knowledgeable in many types of bodywork, including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and Swedish massage. With these modalities, they help people escape the stress that comes with working, raising a family, or counting the number of stars in the sky in your head.
