At Neal's, a team of highly trained pampering professionals apply the latest age- and ache-combating techniques to restore beauty and bliss to flushed faces and embattled backs. During the customized, one-hour European facial, an aesthetician will perform an analysis of the frumpled face in question before administering a thorough cleansing and exfoliating vegetable peel to exorcise the ear-framed masterpiece of dead, dry skin cells (a $70 value). Afterward, a facial massage kneads away tenderness and eases facial stress brought on by years of awkward elevator small talk.
Even though it's called The Face Place, the team at the full-service salon treats clients from head to toe. Inside the clean, modern space with warm orange colors and hardwood floors, spa professionals perform soothing lotus flower mud body treatments, aromatherapy facials and relaxing manicures. Acupuncturists free up energy pathways, and massage therapists melt tension with hot-stone massages. The team even helps beautify folks from the inside out with fitness classes, such as meditation, tai chi and hula hooping.
Massage Metta’s lead massage practitioner, Janine Narayadu, specializes in Active Isolated Stretching. Recognized by many physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists as an effective way to improve flexibility, the AIS method stretches muscles for no longer than two seconds at a time to lengthen the muscles without triggering reciprocal muscle contractions or requiring new, longer clothes. Along with stretching techniques, Janine employs more than 15 years of international massage experience to relieve tension with the firm kneads of deep-tissue massage or the gentle strokes of Swedish massage. Massage Metta also offers craniosacral therapy and detoxification services for general health and wellness.
