At Essentially You, 100% natural bath and body products beckon customers with their aromatic scents and vitamin-rich formulas. Skincare products such as medowfoam oil moisturizer and 100% pure rosehip oil help moisturize the skin and diminish wrinkles, while the inventory of botanical butters, scrubs, and oils blooms with ylang-ylang, passion fruit, and lavender infusions. Clients who can't wait to get home can cozy up in the mini-spa for a facial or massage, which both incorporate many of the boutique's all-natural products. Essentially You also hosts eyelash, facial, and pamper parties where luxury-aficionados convene, revel in age-defying treatments, and play "pin the blemish on the donkey."
The licensed nail technicians at Elegant Image Nail Care Studio have pampered fingers and toes for nearly two decades. With an arsenal of cutting-edge services at their disposal, staffers gussy up digits with manicures, pedicures, polishing, and paraffin-wax treatments. They also sport the steady hands necessary to adorn nails with special artwork, such as tiny shooting stars or written reminders for where each little piggy is supposed to go.
Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is one of the most popular types of kneads in the massage therapist's tool box. It uses long, connective strokes to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. It can also flush the tissue's lactic acid, uric acid, and metabolic wastes, speeding up recovery time from most common anvil-related injuries. Even if your body's in mint condition and still in its original packaging, Swedish massage also just plain feels good, especially when experienced in Integrated Massage Therapy Center's serene confines and accompanied by their friendly advice on how to keep yourself feeling loosey-goosey with nutrition and exercise.
Three times a week, Just U Relax's owner and principal massage therapist paid a 90-minute visit to one of her favorite clients, an elderly Italian woman who could barely speak a word of English. One day after a visit, the woman's daughter called and asked the massage therapist if she could come back again right away, saying her mother was not doing well. She arrived and set to work massaging her client's body, much of which had collapsed inward from a previous stroke. But instead of seeing the usual results, such as the woman's hands relaxing for a short time before tightening back into a bound position, the massage therapist saw her client maintain her peaceful composure. Then, this elderly Italian woman who could speak little English, let alone speak at all due to the effects of her stroke and Alzheimer's disease, looked at her massage therapist and said with perfect clarity, "Thank you." The woman's daughter called later, saying her mother died that evening, and that she wanted to say thank you for giving her mother such comfort before she passed. It was that moment that made the massage therapist realize she knew she could help people.
Raised by a cardiologist, the future owner of Just U Relax and her brother made a pact to go to medical school together, but when she found herself disenchanted by clinical environments and desiring a more hands-on approach to patient care, she explored massage therapy. Today, she and her team of licensed massage therapists at Just U Relax assess posture, gait, and occupational stress to customize bodywork for each client. The staff sees to guests' comfort in a variety of ways, including giving visitors warm robes and plush slippers, using massage tables with triple-cotton-padded tops, and playing relaxing music as aromatherapy wafts between rooms. Therapists also offer clients snacks such as fruit smoothies and granola bars. Additionally, each therapist is required to undergo at least three hours of training each month to learn new massage techniques and stay sharp.
Current Electrology specializes in one thing: helping clients rid their bodies of unwanted hair. To accomplish this, the licensed cosmetic therapist uses their electrolysis system, which provides long-term hair-loss solutions for people with a broad range of skin and hair types. During each appointment, the team at Current Electrology will insert a very fine needle alongside individual hairs, then deliver a small electric current directly into the follicle. This damages the follicle, preventing the hair from growing back over time, leaving clients one step closer to attaining smooth, stubble-free skin.
