Allure Day Spa & Hair Design Lights Up Midtown East

Allure Day Spa & Hair Design Lights Up Midtown East

Credit to: Allure Day Spa & Hair Design
I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and in that whole process one thing can actually lead to another.  In this sense, it has do with an amazing spa location that I recently discovered last week.  I was asked to write an article on this app called LookBooker, which is essentially the OpenTable for Salons throughout NYC.  After writing the article, I glanced through what was available as I was looking for some treatments and a new spa to call my own.  One of the first ones that showed up was Allure Day Spa & Design, located in the heart of Midtown East and a mere two block walk from the 53rd/Lexington Avenue stop (convenient!).  Since discovering them, I have been back twice and really enjoy the experiences that Allure provides.

Allure Day Spa & Hair Design has had some pretty notable exposure in the media world, not just local to New York City.  They have been featured in major publications from Allure to Cosmopolitan Magazine, and after experiencing them twice i can completely see why.  There is a very calming sensation you feel once you walk down the two flights of steps into the salon, and the location itself is large in size and is impeccably clean, which is a necessary thing for any type of location, especially this one.

Something that also drew me to their location when I booked was that they have a suite of services for men, whereas a good portion of salons that i saw didn’t necessarily cater to the opposite sex.  It is good to have this kind of duality, and Allure Day Spa exceeds in that where it matters.  For men, they have manicures/pedicures, hair removal, cuts & style, facials, massages, body treatments and even a VIP House Call (available for both sexes) where they can come to you.  How amazing is that?  For both sessions while I was there, I had an amazing and needed facials (Blackheads galore!) and a fantastic Swedish Massage that left my face feeling fresh and new and my whole body feeling re-energized.

Allure Day Spa also offers unique treatments that go beyond what the normal Spa & Salon offer.  One of them is Ear Candling, which is described as “a safe, simple, natural way to remove excess wax and debris from inside the ears.”  They also have wonderful salon services including Cut & Color, Hair Repair, Extensions, Straightening and more.  If you are also the bride to be and need a great place to relax with your bridesmaids, they have you covered.  They also have an amazing line of products that are geared towards each individual treatment you receive. Essentially, Allure Day Spa is your one stop shop for all things spa and salon related, and I would recommend booking an appointment as soon as possible as we are all in need of a little TLC every once in a while.

Massage Therapy Health Benefits and Styles at Allure Day Spa NYC

Massage has been practiced for thousands of years. Today, if you need or want a massage, you can choose from many massage therapy styles with a wide variety of pressures, movements, and techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used.
According to a 2007 American Massage Therapy Association survey, almost a quarter of all adult Americans had at least one massage in the previous year. And, they have a wide range of reasons for doing so. More and more people -- especially baby boomers -- recognize the health benefits of massage. They choose from among many massage styles to get relief from symptoms or to heal injuries, to help with certain health conditions, and to promote overall wellness.
Here is information you can use to help you decide what types of massage will work best for you.

What Are the Health Benefits of Massage?

Many types of massage offer benefits beyond simple relaxation. Allure Day Spa Team of Professional Massage Therapists can help you to choose right massage for you.
Here are just a few of the health problems that may benefit from massage. Ask your doctor before using massage for any health condition, though.
  • Back pain . More than one study has shown the effectiveness of massage therapy for back pain. In fact, one 2003 study showed it worked better than acupuncture or spinal modification for persistent low back pain -- reducing the need for painkillers by 36%.
  • Headache . Another type of pain -- headache -- also responds to massage therapy, as shown by more than one study. Massage therapy can reduce the number of migraines a person has and also improve sleep.
  • Osteoarthritis . In the first clinical trial looking at the effectiveness of Swedish massage for knee osteoarthritis, participants who received a one-hour massage either one or two times a week had improvements in pain, stiffness, and function. The control group had no such change.
  • Cancer. Used as a complement to traditional, Western medicine, massage can promote relaxation and reduce cancer symptoms or side effects of treatment. It may help reduce pain, swelling, fatigue, nausea, or depression, for example, or improve the function of your immune system.
  • Anxiety. A review of more than 12 studies shows that massage helps relieve depression and anxiety. It lowered levels of cortisol by up to 50%. And massage increased levels of neurotransmitters that help reduce depression.


Which Massage Styles Are right for You ?

You may have noticed that different massage styles are popular at different times. And you may have wondered whether each was just part of a passing fad or the latest, greatest massage technique? Even more important is how can you tell whether the latest style will actually help you?
Styles used in massage therapy range from long, smooth strokes to short, percussive strokes. Some massage therapists use oils and lotions; others do not. Most massage therapists have clients unclothe for a massage, but some do not. A massage can last anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours.
Before you can decide which massage style is best for you, you need to ask yourself a question. Do you simply want a massage for relaxation and stress control? Or do you need symptom relief or help with a certain health condition? Before booking a massage, let the therapist know what you're looking for and ask which style the therapist uses. Many use more than one style. Or the therapist may customize your massage, depending on your age, condition, or any special needs or goals you have.
What follows is a list of some of the more popular massage therapy styles.

Swedish Massage

The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury.
The four common strokes of Swedish massage are:
  • Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue
  • Petrissage: the squeezing, rolling, or kneading that follows effleurage
  • Friction: deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, helping to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue
  • Tapotement: a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand

Neuromuscular Therapy Massage

Neuromuscular therapy is a form of soft tissue manipulation that aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points (tender muscles points), circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.

Sports Massage

Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, sports massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training -- before, during, or after sports events. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Or, it may help muscle strains, aiding healing after a sports injury.



Hot Stone Massage

For this kind of massage, the therapist places warmed stones on certain areas of the body, such as
acupressure points. The stones may be used as massage tools or be temporarily left in place. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they transmit heat deep into the body.

Reflexology

Reflexology uses hand, thumb, and finger techniques to stimulate certain areas of the feet. These areas are believed to correspond to different parts of the body. The massage, then, is expected to promote health and well-being.

Pregnancy Massage

During pregnancy, your body goes through major changes. Pregnancy massage can help with these changes by reducing stress, decreasing arm and leg swelling, and relieving muscle and joint pain. Massage may be particularly helpful during a time when medication and other medical options may be more limited. Using specially designed massage tables, the massage therapist will help get you into a comfortable position for this type of massage.

Call Allure Day Spa 212 6445500 to schedule your Massage Experience or book online http://alluredayspa.com/index.html and get 10% off 60 or 90 minutes massage till the end of October.
