Armed with more than 13 years of experience and her knowledge of numerous massage modalities, she addresses these distinctive needs by designing personalized treatments that work to rejuvenate both body and mind. Amy uses Swedish massage to relax overstressed musculature and can also rely on deep-tissue work, trigger-point therapy, or heated volcanic stones to treat the underlying causes that contribute to chronic pains. For an added boost, the center performs facials and seaweed gel wraps, which work to nourish the skin and attract the attention of wealthy merman suitors.

Stylists, aestheticians, and licensed massage therapists assemble under the roof of Salon 554, a downtown day spa and salon that relies on name-brand products. Hair caretakers spritz clients with products from Pureology, a brand that eschews the alcohol found in other hair products, and skin specialists unleash the topical creams of Bioelements, a line of products developed by the country’s first licensed aesthetician. Massage therapists vanquish stress with the strokes of nine modalities while sprinkling skin with soothing essential oils. Powder-blue walls and dark hardwood floors spread before guests, stretching through a salon whose branching spaces house marble washrooms, abundant plant life, and private treatment areas where clients find refuge from the outside world and the flesh-covered cyborgs who constantly pester them for hugs.
