Sweet Earth Therapeutic Massage owner Myrna Lovell-Jones knows the ins and outs of human anatomy—she holds both a nursing degree and a certification in advanced massage therapy. The therapist draws from this holistic knowledge to perform a range of massages, including Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, aromatherapy, and pre- and post-natal. In reflexology, certain parts of the feet are believed to correspond to various organs, muscle groups, and funny bones throughout the body; during a reflexology session, a therapist applies focused pressure to relieve any tense parts of the body.
Within a tranquil, private room, a massage therapist lightly sets smooth, heated stones along a client’s back. Nearby, a professional athlete discusses her chronic pain or injury-related soreness with a therapist, who tailors the pressure accordingly. These represent just a snippet of the day-to-day activities at Mercy's Touch Massage Clinic, where staffers reenergize bodies and minds with an array of massage modalities—including prenatal, Swedish, and deep tissue—as well as other calming services such as body wraps, aromatherapy, and advanced sheep-counting techniques.
At Got Pain Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Roxanna Williamson customizes her therapeutic massage sessions to suit the needs of each client. Her one- to two-hour sessions moisturize the skin while releasing muscular tension with gentle strokes that glide over raw, organic coconut-oil massage lotion. Reflexology for the hands and feet is also included with each treatment.
Art Hair Salon & Spa inspires beauty from head to toe?stylists and aestheticians alike combine technique with artistic sensibility to design flattering looks that withstand daily life. Clients can peer into mirrored walls to witness transformations occur as hairstylists revamp coifs with cut, color, and texturizing treatments. Nearby, skincare experts obscure blemishes and signs of aging with European facials and acne care, while massage therapist melt tension and inspire calm with hot-stone bodywork treatments. Nail techs maintain sterile work-stations?that means hospital-grade autoclaves, basin soaks with pipeless jet-spas, and all-metal instruments. But they're just as dedicated to the art of nail care with deluxe mani-pedi packages, 3D nail art, and kids mani-pedis for young ?uns who want to make a good first impression with the guidance counselor.

Her arsenal of treatments allow her to help women during every stage of motherhood. Fertility massage can improve the chance of conception, prenatal massage targets pregnancy related pains, and the center's doula services provide support for women during their actual labor.

OM SPA's founder Omar Holmes began his career as a health and fitness coach. He first became aware of massage as a way to help his clients recover from or prevent injuries, but the more he learned about it, the more interested he became. Eventually, he realized he had a passion for the technique, and enrolled at the American Academy of Reflexology to being his education. He still uses the Flocco Method of reflexology in treatments, combining treatments of the hand, foot, and ear to relax the entire body. He rounds out his techniques with modalities such as Swedish, deep tissue, and lymphatic drainage.
