Orchid Beauty & Spa is located on a deserted island?or so it would seem. Panoramic wall prints display turquoise water and pristine beaches as white as granulated sugar. Clients are led past mani-pedi stations and Romanesque white columns to private rooms. There, highly trained aestheticians administer soothing facials and full-body waxes and ease tension with hot-stone and deep-tissue bodywork. The spa also offers an array of Lamprobe and microdermabrasion treatments to stave off acne and pesky spider veins.
The pumpkin refresher, the pineapple express, and the green tea are just a few items on menu—but they aren't drinks. They’re specialized, nourishing facials offered at Jolie Skin & Body Care, nestled inside of Buschi Salon. During skincare treatments, which include body waxing and tinting in addition to decadent facials, customization comes first. Aestheticians take inventory of unique skin-type needs before launching any chosen procedure, ensuring that clients leave the spa feeling more beautiful than the day they wore a half-geode as a bike helmet. Massage therapists also personalize treatments, which may revolve around Swedish, sports, or shiatsu core techniques.
Under the guidance of spa owner, aesthetician, and makeup artist Lori Taylor, Belleza Day Spa's team has maintained Lori's vision: cultivating an unparalleled spa experience by individually tailoring every treatment. Armed with products from Jan Marini and cosmetic lines such as Laura Mercier and Scott Barnes, they take care of the body both inside and out. Facials, waxing, and other skincare help to make clients look luminous, and certified massage therapists relieve tension and break up scar tissue formed from trying to high-five gorillas. The staff also specializes in makeup application, offering packages that include bridal-party services. As a way of giving back to the community, Belleza provides a 30% service discount for firefighters, police officers, and hospital staff, a 15% product discount, and even a 15% discount for the spouses of these service workers.
The massage therapists at Herbs, Massage, Nutrition resolutely commit themselves to relieving chronic pains. With each massage, they strive to have clients leave feeling better than they did when they first came in?whether they were covered in aches, knots, or jellyfish. To this end, the therapists perform a variety of massage modalities, ranging from the deep strokes of Swedish massage and the scent-assisted relaxation of the aromatherapy technique to the hot, soothing rocks of hot-stone massage.
Text neck may sound like a gimmicky condition, but Doctor of Chiropractic Jonathan Sweeney would say otherwise. Texting tends to draws the neck forward, resulting in a posture that can cause muscle strain, as well as more serious problems such as disk hernias and pinched nerves.
To undo the effects of text neck, sports and work injuries, and other function-impacting issues, Dr. Sweeney and his team take an integrative, holistic approach that considers the whole body. Based on initial examinations, the staff—which includes massage therapist Kelly Allen and eclectic-health practitioner Dee Dee Torre—decides what treatment or combination of treatments would have the most positive impact on each patient. This might include chiropractic adjustments done alone, or in conjunction with therapies such as massage, rehabilitative strength training, or reiki healing that aims to infuse patients with healthful energy.
