At Massage on Kenwick, licensed massage therapist Richard Schwitzerlett digs into muscles with the help of natural oils to root out pockets of tension. He customizes therapeutic massages for each client, focusing on a single area or ranging across the entire body with long, rolling pressures. Rossiter techniques apply weights and guided stretches to limbs to break up connective tissue. Hot-stone massages glide heated river rocks over the body, leaving clients in a state of relaxation not experienced since their one-hour handshake with James Taylor.
In an accommodating downtown location, the licensed Take Ten therapists stretch clients out on comfortable massage beds and cast a long list of lightning-charged spells to induce relaxation. Repose in daydreamy reveries during a therapeutic massage, which uses deep-tissue techniques to deactivate trigger points in muscles, increase blood flow, and remove toxins. Or, opt for a Swedish massage, which works the soft body tissues with long, flowing effleurages, tapotements, frictions, and vibrations to relieve pain, stiffness, and stress caused by scaling thousands of candied fish for yesterday’s office party.
Nicci Debro Spa's stylists spruce and fortify manes by animating recipes for personalized ’do services. Clients discuss their ideal head-topping before submitting locks to practiced fingers for a shampoo, style, and friendship-belt-weaving demonstration. A Moroccan-oil treatment then polishes fibers to an eye-drawing shine, rendering snarls more manageable and adding pluck to wilted tresses. The oil also nourishes hair damaged by past applications of color or rough styling, permitting strengthened braids to enter shot-putting tournaments. For a refreshing change of shade, Nicci Debro Spa can dye coiffures in a patron's chosen hue.
At age 16, Danny De Salvatore was astounded at how his body conformed to his wishes after a weightlifting regimen. What began as an effort to better his soccer playing grew into a lifelong passion—he earned a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a personal-training certification through ISSA. With credentials in hand, he worked at national gym chains throughout Columbus and taught in Rome at fitness centers during the summer. He continuously tracked observations as he met with clients, making note of which strategies led to results and which were simply fads. Soon, he was ready to open his own facility and cultivate the intimate, small-business vibe that would lead to loyal members.
Danny has gathered a team of experts to man one-on-one training sessions as well as group classes at Oxygen Health & Fitness. All of them contribute to a familial support network, making customers feel welcome by memorizing their names and tattooing their initials onto each pectoral. Massage, tanning, and nutritional wellness services round out the gym's fitness offerings for a balanced approach to physical welfare.
Chazon Grand's spacious salon houses a standing army of licensed aestheticians and keeps them in fighting form with routine training from in-house staff and product vendors. The custom facial kicks off with a complimentary consultation, as epidermal psychologists determine skin's individual needs and try to analyze its dreams about cashmere balaclavas. A customized skin steam-cleaning unpollutes pores, setting the stage for a gentle exfoliation that scatters dead and dull skin cells to the wind. Finally, the facial mask seals the skin-tightening deal, and a neck and shoulder massage keep head-holders from staging a jealous walkout. The beige and brown earth-toned décor and potted palm trees create a warm, comfortable atmosphere at Chazon Grand Salon. Metallic highlights add a hint of modernity, and the asymmetrical mirrors double as an ingenious vampire detection system.
