As the owner of Therapeutic Touch, Licensed Massage Therapist Sonya Foradora and her fellow therapists foster relaxation, wellbeing, and beauty with massages and facial treatments. Body-therapy sessions in the cozy studio complement muscular manipulation with such clarifying offerings as full-body exfoliation and hydrotherapy. The outfit's attention to detail can help patients overcome a wide array of stress-related maladies, such as headaches, chronic fatigue, and pinky cramps.
Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Divine Designs owner Walter Allgood aims to empower patrons with a full slate of ego-boosting beautification services. A self-proclaimed “weaveologist,” Walter accentuates clients’ existing tresses with natural-looking add-ins, and master stylist Norman Staton wields his 17 years of experience to snip and style unruly strands. The multitalented staff also bolsters beauty with nail and waxing services.
Aquage, OPI, Wella—these are just three of the professional name-brand products the stylists at Savvy Salon use to beautify their clients. They sprinkle these products over heads during shampoos and styles and use them to primp nails during manicures. Devoted to the health of its clients' hair, Savvy Salon uses products free of harsh chemicals whenever possible, such as during an ammonia-free color gloss, formaldehyde-free keratin treatment, and 100% vegan miracle hair repair.
Tell us about your business.
[It’s] a one-stop-shop for the mind, body and soul. We provide a unique approach to healing. Many of our customers travel from all over Ohio for our outstanding services and to receive attention from our extremely compassionate staff.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I have always been a natural healer from as early as my childhood. It wasn't until I had started taking prerequisites in college that I realized what my true calling was.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Hypnotic massage. It is a unique service that integrates a therapeutic massage with our heart-centered hypnotherapy. Personally, I combine the massage and the hypnosis in the same session . . . another option is to have the therapeutic massage before the hypnosis session. You could also have our hypnotherapist sit in the room with you during your massage treatment and engage you in the hypnotherapy process. We intentionally pair these two services together to assure ultimate healing results that will be imprinted deeply within your cellular tissue and deeper into the subconscious mind to assure the results stick.
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
We have complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate in our waiting-room area. We provide cold water after massage sessions to flush out toxins. We also have a wide range of reading materials as well as cable television in the waiting room.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our one-stop-shop keeps growing. We are in the process of developing our unique yoga studio and café downstairs from our current location with a tentative grand opening for this fall.
