Soft, relaxing music battles audible oohs and aahs at Kacey Mayo's massage studio, where the licensed massage therapist calls upon her training in seven modalities to dissolve stress and pain. Mayo encourages clients to speak up about their expectations and needs so that she can tailor her services to treat past injuries and other areas of concern. Electric warmers keep massage beds toasty, and the specialist uses heated packs to keep unmassaged areas warm throughout each session.
Brows and lashes, welcome to your happy place. It's called Lush Threading & Spa, and it's home to a team of spa technicians who specialize in everything from brow tinting to eyelash extensions.

The list of services at Diana's Salon showcase a variety of hair services in a warm and chic salon environment. Place your head in the hands of one of Diana's skilled stylists, and prepare to undergo anything from a basic haircut ($27 for men, $45+ for women) to a dramatic perm ($70+) and virgin texturizers or relaxers ($100+). Add dimension to a dreary 'do by using this Groupon toward a partial crown-foil-treatment around your cranium ($65+). Aspiring homecoming queens or anyone aspiring to play one on TV can treat their tresses to radiance that surpasses crown-limits with a full foil (starting at $95). If you have a head of dry follicular fettuccini but little time to look up at-home recipes, stop by Diana's on a lunch break for a 30-minute damage-remedy treatment ($25) and leave with luscious, buttery angel-hairs.
Using only the tip-toppiest-notch products, the talented nail technicians at Tonya Jones SalonSpa nurse distressed digits back to beauty. Both manicure ($30) and pedicure treatments ($45 for men, $55 for women) at Tonya Jones commence with a gentle but committed scrubbing and buffing, banishing dull, dead skin cells from both sets of limb-enders. Sniff-savvy patrons can prove their aroma aptitude by commenting on the lovely layered notes of the employed products from Aveda's Rosemary Mint line, and less scent-driven salon-goers can relish the collection's cooling sensations. Once your skin is smooth, soft, and massaged, a specialist will trim your cuticles and discretely whisper sweet nothings to your fingertips, making them extra receptive to shades of polish most likely harvested from verdant, vibrant Opi orchards.
Skilled practitioners at Much Kneaded Massage Therapy manipulate muscle knots with traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques, or knead out knots with their bare feet during Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. A Swedish massage’s long, slow strokes work to increase circulation, reduce soreness, and ease stiffness more swiftly than taking a bath in fabric softener. Deep-tissue therapy targets chronic pain and tight muscle knots with more focused pressure. Alternatively, barefoot practitioners grip overhead bars for support during an Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy massage, leveraging their full body weight and masterful tap-dancing technique to achieve the client’s desired level of pressure. This unique style of massage fuses European and Asian techniques and utilizes pulling, pushing, and stretching movements that may help repair damaged soft tissues.
