As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
After receiving a massage at Sunrise Massage Therapy Services, it’s hard not to feel that the sun has indeed risen on a new day. That’s because the studio’s certified therapists—whose skills extend from traditional Swedish massage to specialty prenatal and geriatric styles—are never satisfied until they have relieved chronic pains and lingering tensions. During manual lymph-drainage sessions, for example, their gentle manipulations help drain excess fluid from the body and bolster the immune system’s capacity to fend off illnesses and slaps from school bullies. The studio also operates an online store where clients can buy lotions, pillows, and massage equipment to stop tension at their homes’ doorsteps.
Christina Freeman and her resident aesthetician have more than 30 years of collective experience in the art of making skin glow. In their pursuit of youthful radiance, the skin specialists tailor spa treatments to each client’s skin type. The organic passionfruit peel offers a lighter rejuvenation, and chemical peels and Dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments delve deeper to combat blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles or comb-over noses.
Spa-goers can relax during full-body massages and enjoy the aromatherapy of nine essential oils during raindrop-therapy sessions designed to boost immune systems and soothe stress. Rounding out their services, Christina and her team can enhance features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup and wax away mustaches or eyebrows that need braiding each morning.
Licensed massage therapist Holly Legan’s motto is “well-being begins here.” And inside Holly's Healing Hands, she promotes well-being through a range of massage techniques that break up scar tissue, disentangle muscle knots, and improve flexibility.
The face-saving staff at Roni's Hair Forum warmly welcomes visages with a skin assessment, customizing each session by epidermal type and age. Aestheticians begin 60-minute deep-cleaning facials with an examination and deep cleansing, scrubbing cheeks and dusting off noses. If needed, an extraction clears clogged pores before a massage's soothing motions relax cheeks stressed by lengthy free-form jazz whistle solos. A treatment mask blankets skin in a formula designed to pamper each face's specific skin type. Ninety-minute treatment facials also begin with a deep cleansing and extraction, followed by a more in-depth massage. Finally, technicians infuse a special treatment serum into the skin through an electric current, which brightens complexions by sending self-affirming maxims to skin cells via Morse code. Once thoroughly refreshed, guests parade rejuvenated faces through Roni's Hair Forum's classically inspired interior, dignified with scalloped columns and elegant vases verdant with greenery.
There’s nothing common about the massage sessions at North Canton Aqua Massage, except for their relaxing effects. Unlike at most spas, clients remain fully clothed during their appointments at North Canton, and they don’t need to worry about leaving coated with oil. Aqua-massage sessions take only 20 minutes and keep clients completely clean and dry, and, perhaps most shockingly, there are no therapists in sight. High-tech beds take care of all the kneading, gently manipulating achey muscles with pulses of heated water.
