Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.
Located in an 1,800 sq. ft. salon, Headley & Crawford Salon & Spa?both a Lanza and Dermalogica concept spa?places an emphasis on personalized care which underscores their expansive menu of beauty treatments. Take, for instance, the facials and chemical peels, which begin with a consultation and skin analysis to identify and brainstorm a treatment plan for problems such as blemishes or pores clogged with dead leaves. And the massage treatments are all prefaced by a postural assessment with the therapist to determine which modality is best suited to the client's body or relaxation needs. The meticulous attention to detail extends to the salon side of the business as well, where an emphasis on hygienic practices sees nail technicians sending clients home with single-use files and stylists sending freshly styled strands home perched atop the same head they came in on.
At The Zone of Comfort, licensed massage therapist LaTonya Carroll heals and soothes the bodies of clients with calming massage and bodywork treatments. Living up to the promise of the business name, each procedure takes place in a comfortable room, relaxing worried minds and sore bodies with warm temperatures and soft music. Treatments run the gamut from soothing Swedish and hot-stone massage to reinvigorating deep-tissue treatments that rout chronic pain with targeted muscle manipulation. In addition to assuaging body aches and melting away stress, professionally executed massages deliver myriad benefits, including enhanced immunity, reduced stretch marks and scar tissue, and temporary flight.
An esthetician and massage therapist for almost 10 years, Jennifer Christiansen relies on products from Éminence Organic Skin Care to enhance her facials, each of which is customized to match an individual’s skin needs and goals. She also alleviates stress via massages in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments, all of whose soothing qualities can be enhanced by hot stones placed on acupressure points. Her eyelash extensions beautify blinks, and her waxing services removes unwanted hair from nearly any body area or phantom body area.
Even down to its decor, Sacred Stone Massage and Bodywork exudes comfort. The space’s airy feel and soothing color palette take guests in with slate-gray walls, soft lighting, and plush blankets and pillows that adorn the furniture. The spa’s licensed massage therapists embrace and complement the mellow ambiance with a host of massage services. They stretch and soothe aching muscles during relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue sessions and give expectant mothers a break from the tension that comes with carrying an infant and constantly fighting off flocks of storks with prenatal treatments. Hot stones and paraffin wax augment some sessions, whereas others include peppermint- and lavender-infused scrubs.
