At Renewed Health and Wellness, licensed massage therapist Ronald Krueger tailors each massage to meet his clients' individual needs. He uses long, gliding Swedish strokes to promote relaxation and improved circulation. For chronic pain, he offers traditional deep-tissue massages and knot-diffusing active trigger-point release, as well as the pain-neutralization technique (PNT)—a modality that gets to the source of the discomfort by working with the neurological reflexes controlling the muscle.
Owner Shelly Bergner began as a stylist at Elevate Hair Studio Glam before ascending the managerial ranks, straight past coif colonel and locks lieutenant. Today, she uses a decade of industry experience to lead her team in beautifying clients with a full menu of haircare, nailcare, and skincare services. The staff members maintain preparedness for such events by perpetually continuing their education, attending industry events and fashion shows, and sharpening their shears by asking them SAT sample questions.
Though licensed massage therapist Mike Forrest specializes in medical massage, his repertoire includes a number of different modalities. A member of the American Massage Therapy Association, Forrest employs deep-tissue, hot-stone, or sports techniques at his private studio. He also performs reiki energy sessions that can promote physical healing and a feeling of inner harmony comparable to sorting a box of Lucky Charms into color-coded marshmallow piles.
For nearly 10 years, stylist Dunya Rox has expertly sculpted her clients' hair, whether through light trims or more intricate looks. When she's not taking a little off the top, she showcases her threading talents by removing her patrons' unwanted eyebrow hairs. Dunya is part of a quartet of top stylists at LTease Hair Studio, who collectively brighten locks with highlights and tame frizzy strands with straightening. The studio is the brainchild of Linda Turner, whose own specialties include treatments for natural hair, such as weaves and retightening dreadlocks.
The accommodating staff at The Cutting Edge Salon uses their talented hairstylists to snip away at overgrown coiffures and perform a variety of mane-manipulating services, including single-process color, texturing, and styling. Clients can continue beauty regimens at home with the salons' collection of Redken products available for purchase. Outside hair services, the salon furnishes both of its locations with 40 clean and thoroughly inspected private UV tanning beds, allowing the team to collectively bronze visitors one small army at a time. The four tiers of tanning beds each contain face and body light bulbs that vary in number and intensity, and grant tanners a luxuriously gold exterior without pushing them into King Tut's sarcophagus. Those eschewing UV rays step into the salons' automated Magic spray-tan booths, which engulf bodies in three shades of tanning solution for an even, streak-free tan with head-to-toe coverage.
In a private, women's only, and by appointment only space, Christina Marie, the beautician and mastermind behind The Beauty Parlour, helps her clients to look and feel their best with a lengthy menu of hair, skin, waxing, and beauty services. In addition to chic haircuts and vibrant color treatments, The Beauty Parlour offers specialized haircare in a private setting. Wax, enriched with elements of gardenia and water lily, deftly removes hair from limbs, faces, and bathing suit areas, while body treatments, such as monticelli mud, help to detoxify and rejuvenate the skin.
