Circle of Health Wellness Center
700 A S. Illinois St.
Belleville, IL 62220
For medical massage, it’s hard to beat the experienced massage therapists at Circle of Wellness. The experience here is more clinical and less luxurious than a spa, and the focus is long-term relief from chronic pain. The therapists at Circle of Health have decades of experience and specialized training that go well beyond those found in a typical spa. They are often able to solve long-term pain and mobility issues that have confounded doctors. Whether you have a sports injury or a long-term pain issue, Circle of Health might be able to offer blessed relief.
Sound Stone Massage Spa
197 Watson Plaza
St Louis, MO 63126
Sound Stone is a little different from other massage spas. For one thing, the business prides itself on giving clients every minute of massage they pay for. The clock starts when the therapist begins the massage, not when you walk through the door. The Sound Wave Deep Relaxation table vibrates gently with the tidal rhythms of the relaxation music. Aromatherapy is always included, and stones can be added to any massage. Facials, skincare, waxing and package deals are also available. The spa’s most popular treatment is the Stone and Sound Sampler, which allows you try out some of the sound and massage styles for only $55.
