The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
With salon and spa services that range from haircuts to pedicures, the team at Max Salon and Spa pampers patrons literally from head to toe. Their signature haircuts, facials, massages, and waxing services come with some supplemental courtesies. Standard haircuts come with Aveda stress-relieving treatments to relax muscles. Meanwhile, every plant peel, green science facial, and MAX signature facial starts with a personalized skin analysis, resulting in a treatment as one-of-a-kind as a monogrammed snowflake.
Notes of relaxing music float through the air within the warm and welcoming private rooms of Massage Retreat & Spa, mingling sometimes with the rhythmic tapping of fingers across sore muscles or the silence of relaxation. While the spa?s massage therapists melt away aches and pains with smooth Swedish strokes, warm stones, or liquid-hot magma, their aesthetician counterparts indulge complexions with cleansing facials, waxing sessions, and treatments for eyebrows and eyelashes.
Though their menu of available sessions can seem overwhelming at first, the spa?s staff takes the time to tailor each treatment to clients? individual needs; a health questionnaire and customer profile?required of first-time visitors?assists their efforts to pinpoint your unique ailments and concerns. An online Health Resource Center similarly typifies their uncommon dedication to individual care with its trove of helpful health and lifestyle tips with massage therapists and skincare specialists.
The trainers at Art of Strength eschew newfangled machines. Instead, they employ only fitness tools that have stood the test of time: weight balls, ropes, logs, sandbags, and boxes. Ropes use the weight of the human body to build strength, and the relentless swing of kettlebells works the body as a whole and torches calories. Weights clatter beneath hanging rings and inspirational quotes chalked on the walls. Bass thuds and happy grunts fill the studio as patrons flip truck tires or leap onto boxes. The old-school equipment forms the core of classes, which leave patrons as strong as ancient warriors or the guys who had to push ancient warriors’ strollers.
Though Perfect Ten Nail Salon’s technicians have no problem looking guests in the eye and greeting them with a warm smile, their attention quickly wanders to hands and feet as they set to work trimming, primping, and polishing nails. The experienced technicians keep acrylic and Shellac polishes close by their manicure stations, making use of the colorful bottles when the time comes to embellish nails with colorful portraits of their wearers. Manicures and pedicures also tend to skincare needs with flourishes such as oil rinses, foot massages, and soothing paraffin treatments.
Laura Buske, a resident stylist at Zina’s Salon, brings more than a decade of chic styling know-how to her litany of tress-taming services. Upon arrival, clients can opt for a complimentary consultation with Laura, where she’ll map a follicular battle plan and rid noggins of any precariously balancing dictionaries. Laura deftly snips away superfluous locks before elegantly rearranging the enduring strands into a modish, dependable style. Newly trimmed tresses flourish during a deep-conditioning treatment, which douses arid manes in fortifying moisture to repair damaged strands and endow the silken shimmer of a newborn wookie. Alternatively, guests can opt for a basic coloring treatment, choosing from a coterie of vivid shades to suit their new style. Each service lasts around 60 minutes, and may conclude with a short styling lesson from Laura that allows patrons to re-create the same look from their home, office, or chamber of mirrors.
