The licensed massage therapists at New Beginnings Massage Therapy soothe stressed physiques with a full menu of massage modalities. Therapists calibrate the amount of pressure to please each back, working over muscles with the techniques of standard Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone treatments or specialized prenatal, reflexology, and cranial massages. The staff also promotes healthy skin with paraffin-wax dips for the hands and feet, sugar scrubs, and seaweed body wraps for homesick mermaids.
In addition to enlivening bodies with a sense of well-being, New Beginnings Massage Therapy also inspires joy by raising support for the Down Syndrome Association.
From more than 80 locations nationwide, the therapists of Elements Therapeutic Massage performed more than 400,000 massages in 2011. The deft team continues their pursuit of pampering by performing comprehensive consultations before every service. Once health concerns have been highlighted, therapists ameliorate stress by applying the client's desired level of pressure and avoiding any and all knock-knock-joke attempts. Though all of the therapists are well-versed in Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, some are also familiar with prenatal, sports, hot-stone, or trigger-point modalities.
As you might deduce from its name, Color Correction Salon's specialty lies in setting strands right after botched home dye jobs or summers spent touring with Jem and the Holograms. Owner Tom Sollock has taken his tinting talents to hair competitions around the world, picking up numerous awards and medals for his vibrant, cutting-edge designs. While color re-touch is a house specialty, its not uncommon to find clients leaving with shocking streaks of neon pink or electric blue, which the stylists create with top-quality pigments or clip-in extensions that offer all the pop without the permanence. In addition to cuts and color treatments, the salon welcomes the opportunity to makeover heads and faces for weddings and other special events, and frequently hosts kids parties complete with mini manicures, facials, and colored extensions for each pintsize guest.
Women, men, and children are welcome inside Salon Blush, where they can get haircuts from friendly stylists. Adults can also get their hair colored, and keratin blowouts smooth women's hair into sleek manes. The stylists also offer updos, airbrush makeup, UV-free tanning services, and waxes to complete looks, readying clients for a night on the town or a day at the beach.

When it comes to helping others relax, Shaunte D. Strong pulls double duty. When she’s not unwinding kinked muscles at Massage Envy, the nationally certified licensed massage therapist also takes on clients through her own business, Indulgence. No matter the venue, Shaunte alleviates discomfort associated with everyday stress through Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal modalities. Her rehabilitative massage reduces scar tissue after surgery or trauma, and her sports-massage techniques help to improve range of motion and heal athletic injuries incurred during particularly involved victory dances. Clients looking for further indulgence may purchase Shaunte's staycation package: a two-hour treatment—performed in patrons' homes or at the studio—that includes a facial, exfoliating foot treatment, massage, and light refreshments.
A wall of windows throws light across Dallas & Company, where an orange, faux-textured wall accents a sleek interior. Here, beauty professionals—each of whom receives continuing education—administer cuts, coloring, and straightening services that incorporate products from brands such as Moroccanoil. When not arm-wrestling ponytails into submission, the expert staff performs other services that range from applying spray-on tans to stylish makeovers in the form of feather extensions and eyelash extensions. The different staffers have individual areas of expertise as well. Licensed massage therapist April Pate soothes sore muscles, and aesthetician Laura Becknel uses microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and chemical peels to help faces look their most youthful.
