Meeting Your Kneads means meeting clients on their front doorsteps. The mobile massage service—helmed by a certified massage therapist—brings Swedish, hot-stone, prenatal, chair, and deep-tissue massage directly to homes. The business also has a home base from which it slings a slew of other services.
At Hidden Oasis, an international team of five stylists rely on a wealth of experience to transform clients with both classic and conceptual techniques. Using only Aveda products, they pamper patrons with hair coloring, waxes, facials, and holistic conditioning treatments. Their signature service, however, is the salon's Blow Dry Bar. Here, stylists start each appointment with a relaxing scalp massage and shampoo, followed by a luxurious blowout. The salon's decor is just as stylish as the dos that leave the Blow Dry Bar—from the brightly lit, modern styling space with its nature-inspired artwork, to the dark and calming massage rooms.
For aesthetician Petra, caring for people is a calling. More than 25 years ago, she started her career as a radiologist and trauma-center worker in Germany. She eventually traveled to the United States and decided to focus her expertise in aesthetics by opening her own spa. From this boutique haven she continues to care for others—this time with a range of European aesthetic treatments.
At Petra's Skin Spa, she performs seven kinds of tailored facials using Guinot skincare products to even texture and tone. She can reduce the appearance of cellulite and banish toxins from the body with the help of wraps and scrubs, which she blends with Swiss aromatherapy oils and seawater ions. Given her medical background, Petra can even perform advanced med-spa services including laser skin resurfacing.

Serenity Spa and Salon, an Aveda concept salon, takes pampering seriously. Inside the sun-soaked space, stylists specially trained in Aveda's natural, plant-based approach to beauty design haircuts and color treatments to match each client's face shape, skin tone, and individual style. In the spa, aestheticians incorporate aromatherapy into customized facials and massages, steeping clients in sweet-smelling oils that invigorate and rejuvenate.
Japanese screens and soft music set the scene for collective healing in Jus Massage's community acupuncture room. In private chambers, licensed massage therapists knead away tension with 1 of 10 massage modalities, and afterward offer cups of tea to sip in the common area. The clinic's aestheticians perform facials with Dermalogica products, and give complimentary face mapping to determine different facets of skin quality.
