Catering to busy, active lifestyles, LaVida Massage in Clemmons is the perfect place to nourish yourself both mentally and physically, with enormous benefits, no matter what your personal stress triggers may be!
A locally owned business, the spa has served the Clemmons area since 2009, and moved to its current location in 2019. With a mission based on respect, accountability, integrity, honesty, and caring, their success has delivered them a loyal clientele.
“At LaVida Massage we feel our relationships with our clients are an important aspect of the entire massage experience,” says LaVida owner Larry Shifflett. “Some of our clients have been coming to us since we opened 13 years ago, and many of our clients see the same therapists each time.”
While very much embracing an inclusive “family” atmosphere, the LaVida team believes their outlook, combined with a group of highly skilled therapists and estheticians, creates a truly fulfilling experience each time a client walks through the door!
“The ideal wellness routine nurtures one’s mind, body, and soul, and a massage is not just about addressing the needs of our bodies,” Larry explains. “The benefits of regular massage continue both mentally and emotionally, and these benefits last far beyond the time on the massage table. As part of a regular routine, massage therapy can have profound impacts on one’s quality of life!”
We all know how amazing and intricate the human body is, and at LaVida you’ll learn how the physical components of receiving a massage can have lasting effects in other areas of life. The staff believes there are three top areas that benefit from regular massage therapy.
- 1. Established massage therapy sessions benefit our physical bodies by helping with chronic or sporadic pain, injury rehabilitation, relief of migraines and other headaches, and general stress or tension relief throughout the body.
- A consistent practice of massage impacts our mental well-being by relaxing the mind, improving concentration, releasing mental stress, and even enhancing our sleep patterns.
- Massage therapy has an impact over our overall health in ways such as increased blood circulation, enhanced immunity, and reduced heart rates.
Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of working as a massage therapist, according to two of LaVida’s most experienced therapists, is knowing you are contributing to enhancing a person’s quality of life: It’s not just about doing a massage — it’s also recognizing there are benefits beyond the physical, and knowing that making a client “feel better” is just as much about the emotional and spiritual well-being as it is about the physical benefits of the massage. And that is a true gift.
Besides the specific practices of relaxation/Swedish massage, sports massage, deep tissue massage, couple’s massage, pre-natal massage, TMJ therapy massage, cranial sacral massage, trigger point massage, and reflexology, the salon also offers facials, chemical peels, waxing, microdermabrasion, and other services that promote healthy and rejuvenated skin.
