EMH Healthcare’s team of therapists and medical professionals began treating patients in 1904; in the ensuing century, their system of compassionate care steadily expanded to serve the greater Cleveland area. Today, that system includes Exhale, a day spa that sets its advanced medical treatments within a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Though its plush massage beds and warm, earth-toned decor seem far removed from a medical clinic, Exhale doesn’t forsake the medical credibility that has become synonymous with EMH Healthcare. State-licensed and board-certified therapists administer all spa services, which include pedicures, facials, and cosmetology treatments to cover up blemishes and exposed circuit wires.
To give their clients quality services fueled by continuing education programs and therapeutic products, the staff of this beauty salon partners with Aveda product lines made from naturally derived ingredients. Each staff member brandishes only Aveda products during facial treatments, nail sessions, hair appointments, and beard extensions. When snipping strands or soothing skin, they utilize techniques learned from personal experience and teaching programs led by Aveda staff members, known for their cosmetics knowledge and stylish PowerPoint lectures.
Being a top-200 salon is no small feat—those that make the cut are among the very best in their state and Dante Lucci Salon is just that. Their spot on Salon Today’s list of the top 200 salons is just one of its many accolades. The award attests to the success Dante Lucci Salon has had in rendering haircuts with razor- and clipper-cutting techniques. But it also underscores the salon staff’s commitment to continuing their education in order to stay abreast of new styling techniques and the ways in which nuclear physics can be applied to highlights (none so far). Beyond hair work, technicians perform nail services to pamper digits and makeup artists use the preservative-free Mineral Mine line to give clients a new look. In line with their excellent service, they use only the best products as well including those by Kevin Murphy, Oribe, and Living Proof.
Each person's pain is different, and the staff at Elements Therapeutic Massage
believe each massage should be, too. Every therapist here is skilled in multiple styles of massage, so they can easily blend multiple techniques such as deep-tissue, Swedish, and trigger point to create a completely customized treatment. What's more, they also tailor the amount of pressure to suit the client's preferences. Level one, for example, is best for those who prefer a light, relaxing massage, while level four is better for those looking to work out serious muscle knots or to pick up some bread-kneading techniques they can use at home.
Salon Jia Li & Spa prefers natural products to chemical hodgepodges. On the salon side, sulfate-free conditioning treatments extract knots from manes before stylists sculpt coifs with Aquage products rich in marine botanicals. In the spa, aestheticians nourish complexions with the ilike organic skincare line, which blends vitamins and fruit acids with bioflavonoids from herb and vegetable pulps. An alternative to waxing or blow-torching, sugaring removes hair from the lip, brow, and Brazilian bikini region.
A Serenity Now Massage is in the business of bliss. The studio's massage therapists coax muscles into a relaxed state with soothing strokes, and its instructors guide groups toward physical and mental peace during Kundalini yoga and meditation sessions. The studio also sells 1,500-thread-count sheets that encourage blissfully restorative slumber.
