An’tyrice Salon and Spa may not be situated in New York City, but its multicultural hair services save many clients the trip into the Big Apple. Nimble-handed stylists weave virgin-hair extensions into hairlines, brush on dimensional highlights, and clip modern cuts. The salon also welcomes clients in search of airbrush makeup applications, spray tans, facials, and massages.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The treatments at Women's Center for Holistic Healing rely only upon the healer's hands and exhaustive knowledge of the body. For instance, craniosacral therapy eases tension, pain, and disease with precise hands-on manipulations. Similarly, holistic chiropractic treatments begin with spinal adjustments, but they also carry into a client's home life. The chiropractor prescribes meal plans and exercise regimes to augment in-office healing. In addition, the center offers testing for food sensitivities and intolerances.
"Liberation Yoga is founded on the belief that every human being can and should be free." This motto sums up the philosophy of Liberation Yoga, while the center's practices put the motto into motion. Here, students can free themselves of stress and tension during classes that incorporate the mind-body-spirit connection through deep breathing, core-strengthening moves, and meditation. By practicing the ancient technique, students can also lower their risk of heart attacks and relinquish dependencies while increasing their self-awareness and sense of community with other practitioners. These benefits extend outside of classes as well. In the Wellness Center, visitors can further their healing during massage and reflexology sessions, reducing muscle aches and calming their minds from mentally cursing their muscle aches.
The professionals at Bellava MedAesthetics & Spa perform beauty services in a chic, tranquil environment. During the 30-minute HydraFacial treatment, a technician passes over the skin with a specially designed hydradermabrasion wand. As the scepter delivers a combination of hyaluronic-acid serum and oxygen to soften tissue and cleanse the pores, its patented spiral tip exfoliates the skin and vacuums up dead cells. Simultaneously, infusions of oxygen, antioxidants, and moisturizer help diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne, and prune stains for a younger, healthier look.
