The hairstylists and aestheticians at Serendipity Salon & Spa dedicate themselves to making clients look and feel their best. They show this dedication with thorough consultations before they perform any haircut, color, or makeover services. That way, they can customize services to each client while learning about their deepest beauty desires.
As a licensed massage therapist, Krystal keeps good company at Vitalize. She combines her talents with those of an entire team that includes other therapists, licensed cosmetologists, and a licensed aesthetician. Together, they pamper bodies by rubbing away muscle tension, beautifying faces, and soothing skin with special treatments. Krystal herself specializes in Swedish and deep tissue massages, each one enhanced with soft light and music, and performed in a private room so that clients can easily let go of daily worries, like the fear that the sunset will permanently stain the sky pink.
A follicular fashionista weaves the bold colors and intricate patterns of a three-piece feather extension into lackluster locks, bequeathing noggins with bursts of avian flair and the confidence of a peacock at a penguin wedding. Each 5- to 10-inch feather is affixed to hair with a silicon bead, and the process usually takes about 15 minutes. The colorful tufts can endure washing, curling, and flat-ironing and may last up to three months, or until the feathers burst into flames and reincarnate.
Like armies of fierce yet plush teddy bears fighting off hoards of invaders, the certified technicians at Intrinsic Wellness Center decimate stress and bodily toxins with a soft touch. The service menu brims with colon hydrotherapy, massages, and other therapies designed to boost energy and extract the venomous microorganisms that run roughshod through the body.
Powered by far-infrared heat, saunas and body wraps help bodies sweat away unwanted pounds while melting pent-up stress like a microwave dinner melts the romance of a first date. Seasoned massage therapists dissolve muscle knots with four types of kneading modalities, and nutrition counselors help clients build custom regimens of vitamins and supplements using high-tech analytical tools such as Nutri-Physical. In addition to pampering bodies and spirits with detox programs and other spa treatments, staffers edify minds during onsite personal training and prepare people for emergencies during CPR classes.
When she was performing traditional manual massages, Deana Rook had many clients request treatments that involve walking directly on the back. Instead of becoming an expert handstander, Rook researched the physics and anatomical considerations of such a technique and built a frame for two parallel bars above her massage table. She then came across Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, a modality patented by Ruthie Piper Hardee of Health & Body Works Inc, and the missing link she was seeking. After studying directly with Hardee, Rook became the only Mastery-level certified therapist listed in Oklahoma on the organization's website, and opened Global Touch Massage & Ashiatsu to share her advanced training.
In each session, Rook applies massage oil to facilitate deep, multidirectional compression and effleurage strokes, combining the best of Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. The larger surface area of the feet and greater capacity for sustained pressure through the legs can deliver faster relaxation and relief of chronic soft-tissue damage than hand-based methods. Rook also offers Ashi-Thai massage, Hardee's combination of overhead bar support and traditional Thai massage, as well as myofascial release.
