Whether their clients seek relaxation or beautification, the staff at Images Salon delivers with a wide range of salon and spa services. Manicurists pamper hands and feet with hydrating manicures and pedicures, prettifying nails with long-lasting Shellac polish. Massage therapists perform treatments aimed purely at relaxation, augmented with aromatherapy or scalp massages, which use warm oil to soothe skin and prevent brain freeze. In the salon, stylists create new looks with everything from cuts and conditioning to keratin straightening treatments, extensions, and wig customization. Here, the stylists specialize in services for hair of all ethnicities, including natural styles.
Pain and tension can take many forms within the human body. The therapists at Intrinsic Touch and Bodyworks locate the root causes behind those aches and use specialized modalities to address those issues. Above all else, the therapists value their ability to personalize treatments, adopting the best possible approach depending on the client's situation. They offer a wide range of bodywork modalities, including everything from Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to craniosacral and trigger-point therapy. Some of the modalities?such as reflexology and acupressure?even promote holistic well-being by attempting to correct imbalances in the natural flow of the body's energies. Intrinsic Touch and Bodyworks can also turn its treatments into completely indulgent experiences by adding a rejuvenating body scrub or a quick game of Candy Land.
A lot of detail went into this spa's 10 themed sauna rooms. The Gold Pyramid room is plated with real gold, and blue lights rim the floor of the Roman bath. The same opulence marks the heated spa pools, which boast massaging aqua jets. Swim by the indoor aqua bar for a cocktail, or relax beneath one of the Mystic Pool's mountain waterfalls.
Massage by Galen's licensed therapists tailor each massage to their client's needs. This might mean more focus on the back, neck, or legs if that's where the issues lie, or a blending of different massage styles in order to address multiple concerns at once. The staff here is well-versed in multiple styles of bodywork: Swedish for stress, hot stone for tension, and sports massage for injuries. Other treatments include Thai massage and reflexology, as well as portable chair massages, which the staff can bring to treat sore backs at any workplace, festival, shopping mall, or limbo tournament.
Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda. Aveda's environmentally conscious, naturally derived products infuse all of Tangerine's salon services. Seven tiers of hairstylists—ranging from Protégé I to Master III—handle the hairstyling duties by snipping, highlighting, and conditioning locks. At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
In the same way a gardener cultivates the ground for vegetables, the therapists at The Garden Experience Wellness Spa cultivate the body for relaxation. And like gardeners, they use an assortment of tools along with their bare hands. Hot stones, eucalyptus essential oil, acai berry and exfoliating shea butter scrubs work to evaporate tension during customized massage sessions.
