Rejecting the traditional notion that massages are just for spa dwellers and athletes, owner Andretta M. Brown and her team strive to redefine the therapeutic art by making it accessible to all, performing soft and unintimidating body work in their storefront or in the comfort of clients’ homes. The team draws from a diverse menu of therapeutic massages, catalyzing lymphatic drainage with pumping techniques, cultivating all-over wellness with foot- and hand-centric reflexology sessions, or soothing muscles with warm river stones. To relax further, patrons can opt for herbal body wraps or mud treatments that draw out toxins and automysophobic spirits.
Though AMB Mobile Massage tends to clients of all ages, they specialize in therapy for elderly clients. Their geriatric-wellness program, which is tailored to patients with dementia and other age-related conditions, works to improve flexibility and range of motion.
You never know when a date, a job interview, or an old high-school rival might suddenly pop up, so Spa On The Square keeps its doors open seven days a week to help clients look their best no matter the occasion. A full slate of hairstyling services awaits, including cuts, updos, and highlights for both men and women. Nail technicians groom nails and soften skin during basic mani-pedis or organic nail services, which include ingredients such as milk and honey, chocolate, or herbs, and aestheticians reach for chocolate, caribbean sea salt, or seaweed during skin-softening body treatments that may be enjoyed à la carte or paired with a soothing Swedish, deep-tissue, or volcanic-stone massage. Spa On The Square extends its waxing services to men as well, manscaping fuzz on multiple areas including the stomach, neck, back, and ears. The spa even offers men's Brazilian waxes for baseball players looking to facilitate faster slides into home plate.
Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.
Parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and genetically modified ingredients don't belong in any of the skincare products used by master aesthetician Shelley Birnbaum. Driven by a passion for eco-friendly practices, as well as a dedication to providing effective spa treatments, Shelley decided to only stock and employ balms and salves made from organically derived materials. But she wasn't content to merely vend these products—she began making them herself.
Along with her ReNew Botanicals Organic & Vegan line, Shelley draws on a handful of other trusted brands to naturally treat a wide range of skincare concerns. Her facials soothe complexions and address signs of aging with such earth-loving components as grape seed oil, olive leaf powder, and odes addressed "To That Really Nice Field." Many of her treatments are vegan, ensuring any client can stop by for a refreshing pick-me-up.
The staff at Flawless Serenity are merely enhancers of natural beauty. They wax off unwanted hair from brows and upper lips and clear out clogged pores during facials. Clean canvases pop with professional makeup applications for daytime, weddings, and proms. And refreshed visages are completed with lash- and brow-tinting services. To make sure clients feel confident, Flawless Serenity also provides an FAQ page with helpful answers to questions such as "What products do you use?" and "What makes clouds stay up?"
George Bernard Shaw once said "the sound body is the product of the sound mind." Given the amount of stress in today's world, it's no surprise that Mercy Me Massage has adopted this as a personal mantra. In the comfort of a private room, licensed massage therapists hope to restore wellness to the mind and body by dismantling muscular knots. Clients may solicit Swedish or deep-tissue pressure to ease tension, or call on the heat retention powers of smooth river stones to promote circulation.
