Housed in the historic Wiltsie & Crump building—originally erected in 1886 to serve as Pittsford's general store—The Soho Salon's warmly lit interior is home to a collective of former salon owners, veteran colorists, and seasoned stylists. The cosmetic doyens flock to the salon for a chance to work with owner Chas Inzinna, the aesthetic engineer who designed the Hair Color Formula Encyclopedia—an essential reference for colorists on how to create more than 70,000 hues. Inside, bright-red mirrors punctuate lush, cream-curtained walls and couches. Golden lamps dangle above the freestanding chairs, where stylists, such as 15-year veteran Orlando de Nobrega, cut, color, and style coifs into busts of Wile E. Coyote.
In a tranquil spa space, Saggio Spa's aestheticians and massage therapists alleviate stresses stored throughout the body with a range of traditional and exotic facials, massages, and other spa services. Seven types of massage blend various modalities and may incorporate oils, hot paraffin, or hot stones to soothe aching muscles and relax tattoos of growling tigers. Both massages and facials sometimes call on aromatic essential oils and scrubs to refurbish skin; standouts among these include eucalyptus and mint oils, sea salts, and manuka honey. When not soothing back pains or flushing dirt from pores in their private treatment rooms, the spa staff organizes bridal and birthday parties for larger groups.
Pol'ish Salon & Spa's Sue Thomas devotes her skills as a nail technician to performing several manicures and pedicures. Her service menu includes gel polish manicures, which involve more filing and buffing than a weightlifting lawyer's schedule. Sue infuses friendliness into each service she renders, and she strives to make each visit relaxing for her guests. That emphasis can be found in her spa pedicures, which incorporate hot towel treatments and extended massages of the feet and legs.
When it comes to making people feel better, the massage therapists at Seventh Generation Healing don't think that doctors should have all the fun. In sessions that typically last one hour, they target tension with therapeutic strokes and kneads that gradually restore balance to the mind and body.
At Stress Relief & Health Consultants, tension is public enemy No. 1: studies by the World Health Organization suggest that in addition to wreaking havoc on the mind, it may also prime the body for gastrointestinal disorders and ischemic heart disease. In this welcoming studio, caring staffers attack all stress-related baddies with therapeutic weapons including counseling, bodywork, aromatherapy, and fitness classes. Boot camps trample sluggishness with jumping jacks, pushups, and other high-intensity exercises that strengthen and condition the entire body. Massage therapy dissolves worry with soothing strokes that can untangle muscle knots and boost blood and lymph flow to promote healing. The studio also offers nutritional coaching, which helps clients to set achievable diet and fitness goals and tell the difference between a brownie and an overcooked broccoli floret.
At Theratopia, massage therapists mollify aches with soothing, therapeutic massages and aestheticians nourish skin with an array of revitalizing facials. The spa is committed to creating a quiet, tranquil environment free of distractions and disruptive noise pollution.
