The diverse team of practitioners at Eternal Balance helps to tune out the chatter of the outside world and rejuvenate the mind, body, and spirit with reiki, massage, and private yoga services. The intimate healing studio, tucked away in the Cummings Center, contains a private massage treatment room where the therapist tenderizes sore muscles and unties braided tendons with Swedish, deep-tissue, and prenatal techniques.
A nearby classroom hosts groups of students during life-enhancing workshops, such as The Art of Natural Breathing. The studio's owner, Olga, a trained reiki practitioner and yoga instructor, concludes each session with an improvised haiku to brighten each client’s aura.
Tranquility Massage and Spa is lead by Janet Owen Estella, who in 15 years as a massage therapist has appeared on TV, been interviewed in New Perspectives Magazine, and worked for the Massachusetts Chiefs AAA baseball team for her therapeutic skills. She also studied aesthetics and herbal medicine, and she integrates all of these skills and experiences into her treatments at Tranquility Massage and Spa.
In her lovely spa—between a gas fireplace and views of the Bass River—the experienced staff doles out therapeutic massages, full body exfoliation treatments, and energy work. The staff treats neck and back pain, headaches, chronic pain, sports injuries, and sore muscles. Knowledge of botanical medicine informs aesthetic treatments—as they use natural plant enzymes to draw out the skin’s radiant colors during the Tranquility enzyme facial.
At Tsunami Massage and Wellness, therapists free clients from chronic discomfort and restricted muscular movement, enhancing both physical and mental health in the process. They work with four massage styles—during traditional Swedish massage, for example, they relax the body through gentle kneading, much like a baker relaxes a lump of frazzled and stressed-out dough. Their deep-tissue massage, on the other hand, disentangles muscle knots with intense, targeted pressure. Hot-stone massage melts away tension with heated stones, and myofascial release alleviates tightness in the fascia with soft-tissue stretching and manipulation.
Glitter tattoos. Nail art. Costumes. These are just some of the shimmery items A Girl?s Place?s stylists load up their cars with when bringing the party to a birthday girl or teen's home. They sling goody bags over their shoulders, tote along hair tools and style books, and brandish palettes of face paints that can cleverly disguise the family dog as a teen pop star. Extras, such as candy buffets and edible crafts, can embellish pre-curated party packages, while themed soirees can focus on topics such as face-painting, dancing, or American Girl dolls.
After low-level laser therapy brought her success in her own battle against hair loss, Amanda Mazzagila opened Rejuvenate Hair Loss Recovery Laser Therapy Clinic to share the treatment with others. Her clinic employs a cool laser that helps patients thicken their manes by increasing blood flow and protein synthesis in the scalp. She also enhances the efficacy of these core laser treatments with a range of shampoos, conditioners, and, supplements that boast hair-strengthening active ingredients.
Studio Hair Design’s stylists combine their creative instincts with 25 years of collective experience and Goldwell haircare products to cut, color, and style their clients’ hair. The studio, with its relaxing coastal atmosphere with ocean views, also employs technicians who dip into bottles of CND nail polishes during mani-pedis and remove hair from brows, lips, and unlucky rabbits’ feet during waxing treatments.
