At The Woodhouse, relaxation begins upon each client's arrival in the spa's dedicated Quiet Room. A fluffy robe drapes around their shoulders and mugs of loose-leaf tea warm their lips as they await the start of their services. The spa's product selection reflects a similar attention to detail: staffers fill the shelves with natural, organic, and wild-crafted products, none of which are tested on animals. They also go the extra mile to include small extras with each session, such as home-care recommendations after facial treatments and foot-cleansing with each massage.
The salon & spa @ greenbriar focuses on four things: hair, skin, nails, and peace of mind. Stylists at the full-service salon offer standard cuts and coloring, in addition to updos and texturizing treatments. Facial services are equally expansive, ranging from basic spa treatments to advanced anti-aging peels. For a more relaxing visit, clients can indulge in hot stone or Swedish massage and cap off an indulgent day with a mani-pedi.
Licensed massage therapist Sonja Peterson gets paid to tame muscles. She uses a variety of modalities to help her in her venture, including long, gliding strokes and deep, pressurized kneading. Some of her specialty massages include trigger point, prenatal, reflexology, and hot stone or warm potato. Sonja can also expertly refresh patrons with a body scrub or ManiSpa-PediSpa treatments.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men is a guy-centric salon that's been featured on the Today Show. Its décor mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—guests look fresher when they leave. Complimentary beverages greet the mitts of each client, and flat-screen televisions and quality service round out a first-rate experience. Your heavyweight treatment includes a consultation, before-and-after shampoos, a cut, a rinse, and styling according to your personal preferences. Each weary head will be treated to a scalp massage and one nametag identifying it as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford."
Led by Dr. Robert and Janine Lejawa, About Face Anti-Aging Institute helps guests turn back the clock to repair damage caused by Father Time. Recently voted "Best Clinic & Spa" by the Harker Heights Evening Star, their staff of age-fighting experts perform treatments ranging from hormone-replacement therapy to chemical peels that dissolve dead skin and encourage new cell growth. Laser hair removal helps keep skin smooth while massages encourage the kind of relaxed state that characterizes kids before they become plagued with anxiety over school, friends, and the world's limited candy supply.
Licensed massage therapist Lori Davis helms Massage by Lori, where she utilizes a variety of massage modalities to tend to individual needs. In a warm, private room, relaxing music plays as she uses the broad, rhythmic strokes of Swedish massage to help ease muscle tension and improve circulation. The focused pressure of deep-tissue massage penetrates lower layers of tissue, combating chronic pains, stress, or lingering pockets of swallowed gum. Other treatments include hot-stone massage, infrared-light treatments, and decompression treatments—also known as cupping. Lori's massages can help alleviate conditions such as back pains, tight muscles, inflexible joints, and witch curses.
