Inside Royal Hair Salon, a trio of stylists draws on more than 20 years of combined experience when creating trendy styles. They snip ends to flatter features and bring warmth to complexions with a smattering of highlights or a vibrant, all-over hue.
For more than 15 years, aesthetician Angela Caravalho has been helping teens clear their complexions and assisting adults in their ongoing quest to maintain a smooth, youthful visage. During facials, organic, oxygen-based Knutek products deliver bacteria-fighting and blemish-belittling oxygen plasma to the skin, helping conquer acne and acne rosacea. Microdermabrasion sweeps away facial debris and donut crumbs with help from a light vacuum massage, and Angela can also help cart away excess cellulite through treatments that may include specially designed bodysuits and light therapy.
Marie Lehn, RN, CAP specializes in pain management and stress reduction by using acupressure and massage. These techniques help to promote health and well being and aid in increasing energy of the mind, body, and spirit. Since 1974, she has broadened her expertise and education in the medical and holistic fields. It wasn't until 1984, however, that she chose to narrow her focus to those two distinct specialties: pain management and stress reduction. Since then, she's honed her talents in these areas, cultivating skills sought after by Kaiser Hospital, the Arthritis Foundation of San Francisco, and the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Sacramento. Marie is most at home, however, at the treatment bed of Relaxation Connection. Within a tranquil environment, Marie performs Reiki, acupressure, and other therapies to keep patients feeling their best.

The licensed massage therapist at Pecosas Touch, Lyn, isn’t known just for her healing hands. Though skilled in many different modalities—including Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal—she’s also known for her ability to fully customize treatments to target pain and avoid any fragile wings. She accomplishes this by listening to her clients’ concerns about their specific issues before and after treatment sessions. Lyn can also augment sessions with hot stones or therapeutic, 100% pure essential oils from Young Living.
For certified massage therapist Daniel Morales, massages that merely relax the body are doing only half their jobs. Whereas some massages induce sleepy serenity, his therapeutic strokes focus on vanquishing pain. Deep-tissue and trigger-point massages deliver firm, cross-grain strokes to break apart adhesions and root out imbedded knots, and sports massages lengthen the muscles to alleviate stiffness.
