Serenity Spa & Chiropractic of Ceres blends the calming treatments of a spa with the healing practices of a chiropractic care center. The center's chiropractic practitioners specialize in workers' compensation, slips and falls, personal injuries, and automobile accidents. They can also induce relaxation and healing with 11 different types of massage and reflexology treatments. Serenity's beauty experts also perform facials, Botox, fillers, eyelash extensions, makeup applications, waxes, and body wraps for weight loss. In addition, the shop helps clients maintain a midsummer bronze year-round with airbrush-tanning services.
As both a licensed esthetician and massage therapist, Sandra has relaxation in the bag. She customizes each European facial to one’s skin type, and erases signs of aging with microdermabrasion scrubs and chemical peels. To soothe muscles, Sandra performs long, fluid Swedish strokes or quickly loosens knots with expedited chair massages. Sandra also offers a variety of waxing services for clients, including Brazilian.
The color pink dominates Gemz Salon, from the walls and furniture to a glamour girl runway that invites visitors to strut down the catwalk and show off their new looks. The spot's fuchsia interior appeals to both children and adults, as does its menu of prettifying services. Rockstar and glitter toe treatments glamorize feet after aestheticians sprinkle glitter onto a gel base, creating an eye-catching look and reflecting sunlight to scare off wayward cave lizards. Shellac manicures preserve the refined states of fingernails with nail-strengthening shades that remain chip-free for up to two weeks.
In addition to nail care, the staff performs an array of salon services. Gemz Salon's stylists clip hair into chic silhouettes and accessorize strands with feather extensions to make them more appealing to pet parakeets. Organic spray tans leave skin both gilded and firmer as a result of green-tea leaves and coffee-seed extracts, and waxing services rid follicles of unwanted hair.
Intimo Skin Care’s Intimo facial aims to leave guests feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and as if they’d donned entirely new skin—skin that’s soft, firm, radiant, and smells like a just-born rainbow. First, one of Intimo’s skincare specialists will analyze your skin, identifying persistent issues and problem areas so that the treatment can be tailored to your specific needs. Next, an aesthetician will use top-notch products to deeply cleanse the face and neck, removing impurities to leave skin looking younger and healthier, like a baby doing calisthenics. After a round of intense hydration and facial massage, your face, neck, and décolletage will be even-toned and smooth enough to impersonate a marble bust.
MaryAnn Sumaraga could barely get out of bed. With an impending back surgery on the horizon, she visited an acupressure therapist in hopes of relieving some of the pain caused by her chronic sciatica. Six weeks later, she cancelled her back surgery, and marched effortlessly into the classrooms at the Holistic Life Institution of Massage and Natural Health, ready to dedicate her life to helping others the way her acupressure therapist had helped her.
After discovering the healing properties of massage, MaryAnn went full throttle, absorbing additional expertise in bodywork, energy work, and Reiki. With 1000 hours of practice under her belt––not to mention additional certifications in homeopathy, herbology, and iridology––she creates tailored, client-centered treatments that often blend massage, aromatherapy, and nutritional advice. She views each client as biochemically unique, and tends to them only after she has a full picture of their pain, so that she can treat it with more specificity than with what she refers to as "cookbook approaches," which are often tailored to the therapeutic needs of tense gingerbread men.
