Janice Malloy, R.N., L.M.T., is more than a massage therapist—she's a muscle therapist. Janice's main concern is muscle and soft-tissue pain management and catering her services to each client's specific needs. She relies on the two-person stretching techniques of the Pfrimmer Deep Muscle Therapy, a cross-fiber approach to tight muscles. Janice's soft-tissue release technique reorganizes scar tissue, while her orthopedic technique restores structural balance to the body by re-educating muscles and improving flexibility. Additional services performed include myofascial release, a method that releases stuck fascia from underlying muscles and pain neutralization, a technique that removes trigger points in as few as 20-seconds.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon are dedicated to pampering and treating besieged skin in an eclectic and soothing environment, free of elitist attitudes and imported cockatoos. Your appointment will start with a skin consultation to determine which of the six facial formulas best suits your pore preferences. Blu's signature facial service, the Blu Essential Facial ($100), is an hour-long face freshener that includes basic cleansing, balancing, exfoliation, European-style massage, and skin-specific hydration. The 60-minute Anti-Aging Facial ($120) replenishes moisture and hydration lost to years of sunny days and skies with scattered clouds. Well-mannered men with unruly razors can soothe sensitive skin and irritation with the Gentleman's Facial ($90, 45 minutes). The blow-dry ($40+) that follows your countenance cleansing is a full-fledged hair helper that includes a shampoo, salon styling, hand exfoliation, and head-and-neck massage.

If Guys & Dolls Hair Salon & Spa has a homey feel, it's probably because the space that now brims with scissors, haircare solutions, and nail polish was until the 1970s a cozy home lined with family portraits and a checklist of uncles banned from family reunions. Today, stylists Vicki Berrien and Heather Guagliardo are at the reins, showcasing their decades of experience styling hair, cleansing skin with facials, and accentuating eyes with eyelash extensions.
Inner Spa's licensed nurses and certified hydrotherapists detoxify bodies and assuage symptoms such as chronic fatigue via colon hydrotherapy. Each one-hour session begins with a personal health consultation to identify treatment goals and expectations. The FDA-approved hydrotherapy device and one-time-use equipment then send a gentle flow of filtered water through the colon, dislodging accumulated toxins and old receipts as customers relax to soothing music; private bathrooms in each treatment room ensure modesty. The therapy may help to bolster the immune system, stimulate healthy muscle contraction in the colon, and promote proper usage of the semi-colon.
