The multi-talented team at Headliners Salon and Day Spa has devoted more than 30 years to pampering clients, bolstering their confidence, and redefining their personal and professional looks. Stylists can trim or color stray locks to create a tidy new look, and nail technicians treat digits with everything from soothing paraffin treatments to chip-resistant gel polishes. Aestheticians help smooth away blemishes with chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures and also nourish skin by incorporating vitamin C or nutrient-rich enzymes into their standard spa facials. Drawing on their mastery of multiple massage modalities, massage therapists can melt away tension with hot stones or stimulate the senses with aromatherapy.
Shiny wooden floors and walls painted in red, gold, and deep purple hues welcome clients to Edge Hair Design & Spa's bright, cheery locale. After filing and shaping nails, a manicure employs hand massage to loosen stiff claws into limber tickling tools. The pedicure adds extra spring to lackluster steps and dehydrated skin by infusing feet with intense moisture. Your choice of brightly colored OPI paints polish off both services. Face coverings can get equal attention with the nonsurgical treatment. The pumice peel and fruit-enzyme application infiltrate pores, evicting degenerate cells so moisturizer can nourish its healthy, youthful-looking counterparts. After delicate preparation, skin is primed to surrender the superfluous icky things it's been hoarding for months to a quick-working vacuum extraction. Each facial treatment ends with a warmed hand massage.
One of the independent studios located within Private Spa, Lipo Laser of Ohio caters to its clients' needs with technologically advanced treatments designed to dramatically slim silhouettes. The LipoLaser system specializes in spot fat reduction, helping contour a number of body parts including love handles. These noninvasive procedures typically generate noticeable results after just one treatment with lasting results coming from multiple treatments.
The staff at Herbal Therapy Body Wraps envelops clients in bandage-like wraps saturated with a cocktail of herbs to rejuvenate the skin and slim the silhouette. The expertly selected cadre of herbs works to drain the body of extra fluids and toxins and to soften weathered hides. Wraps infuse skin with goodies for 60 minutes during each session, aiming to contour while providing immediate inch loss, relaxing the body, and easing joint pain. The treatment may also help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite, ensuring a smooth canvas onto which tattoo maps to secret gumdrop lairs. Wrapees can wear underwear, a bathing suit, or a fashion-forward grocery bag under herbaceous layers. Herbal Therapy recommends multiple wraps to achieve optimal results.
The tranquil environs of Healing Hands by Sherrie take visitors on a journey, almost literally. The recently remodeled rooms inside the 2,000-square-foot, two-story facility double as an international tour—the lobby is decorated to resemble a South African rainforest, and other chambers transport clients to a variety of destinations with Chinese, Indian, Brazilian and Native American themes. There, staff members administer soothing massages, perform steam herbal treatments, and detoxify clients with wrap-less body wraps. Healing Hands by Sherrie has expanded an additional 1,400 square feet and will be adding a fondue cafe later in the year catering to couples, and spa parties or just for fun!
Culinary students gather around their teacher, knowing she is recovering from a serious illness and inquiring gently as to how her health has made such a comeback. It was in this moment that the career of Modern Life Center's founder, Eva Clay, took a sharp turn. The former cooking teacher had refused steroid therapy, believing that it would only treat the symptoms of her illness, and not the root causes of her poor health. So Eva researched what she calls "old-fashioned" methods of detoxification as well as holistic therapies, and slowly worked to heal herself. When her culinary students began seeking advice for themselves and their loved ones, she heard it as a call to become a health and lifestyle coach, which she answered readily.
Though counseling can focus on how past experiences shape the present, Eva believes that life coaching examines how positive traits and experiences in the present can give clients practical tools to help them step into their future. The Modern Life Center's life coaches aid clients in taking control of their professional and personal struggles, and dating and health coaches guide patients in navigating treacherous love lives and lifestyle changes. A crew of massage therapists, a face-refreshing aesthetician, and a chiropractor bustle past potted orchids and high-backed armchairs, working to erase the tensions that accumulate during ordinary life and to leave each patron with the relaxed countenance of a model in a hammock catalog.
