Reflections of Health Integrative Care Center's trained staff dissipate tension-filled nodules through a one-hour massage and wellness practices tailored for each client. Let the licensed therapists decompress overstressed bodies with the deep-tissue massage, in which a muscle manipulator's dexterous digits delve into the deeper layers of tissue to release chronic stress and cooped-up sardines. Treat tired tootsies to the foot-centric reflexology massage, during which specific nerve zones in the feet are targeted to bring harmony to tone-deaf Achilles tendons, or unwind as a therapist renders relaxation and physiological benefits through a hot-stone massage. Other available massages include Swedish, sports, and prenatal.
At Elite Salon and Spa, the first step to any service is a consultation. Taking into account the features, face shape, and lifestyle of each client, Elite's stylists create chic, versatile cuts that can be both casual and formal. Colorists stand ready to mix natural or dramatic shades, so their wearers can hide grays, draw the eye, or allow the patron to more easily blend with their favorite hat.
In addition to the salon services, massage and body treatments help to ease both muscular and emotional tension in softly lit rooms. Aromatherapy body wraps engage the senses while revitalizing the skin, Swedish massages evict knots from shoulders and backs with long strokes, and salt scrubs help patrons to reveal more youthful layers of skin.
