The team of relaxation gurus at InsideOut Wellness includes two trained massage therapists and a reiki master who focus on rejuvenating bodies with affordable massages, reiki treatments, footbaths, and nutritional guidance. Amid candlelight and contemporary decor, massages are doled out in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments as therapists unkink spines and deknot muscles in a variety of massage modalities customized to meet clients' needs and preferences. Each muscle-melting session includes complimentary hot stones, and guests can opt to push their treatments past the borders of Pamperville with luxurious add-ons including paraffin treatments or aromatherapy scalp massage. A collection of old-fashioned bronze basins awaits tired feet with hot water and a soothing foot-soak mixture in preparation for an indulgent treatment further complemented by a pot of herbal tea and sugar-scrub treatment. While massage therapists focus on revitalizing exteriors, InsideOut's resident reiki master turns her attention to the body's interior as she revives waning energy levels with holistic reiki sessions for humans and their animal companions.
Located within InsideOut Wellness Club, Dalila's Nails imparts peace and tranquility with a cozy pedicure station and quirky decor. In front of a giant chalkboard bearing Sanskrit characters and service information, clients soak feet in large copper tubs during pedicures. The aroma of herbal tea wafts through the air as technicians work behind the tea bar or whip up a homemade sugar scrub, which is great for gently exfoliating feet and calves after running through the forest all night under the light of a full moon.
The stylists at Shazi's Hair & Beauty Salon provide the latest styles to clients in need of a haircut, color change, or eyebrow shaping. They also restore damaged hair with Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger products. Using these products during a Keratriplex treatment, the stylists reduce breakage by up to 80%.
One glance at their arsenal of products and it becomes pretty clear where Salon Pure gets its name. Stylists at this Chelmsford beauty spot primarily use all-natural serums—a sign they're committed to not only making hair beautiful, but also keeping it healthy. One of their prized products, YoColoring utilizes the lactose found in yogurt to strengthen, nourish, and protect hair all while safely adding a touch of color without using even a hint of ammonia or werewolf blood. The salon's go-to keratin treatment, Simply Smooth, follows the pure course as well, purging all harsh chemicals to create a botanical-based formula designed to block frizz and smoothen hair for at least 30 days.
Just as they care about the health of hair, Salon Pure’s crew also cares about the health of the community. So, they often donate their talents and resources to local organizations, including “Mom Prom,” which benefits breast-cancer research at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
No matter how much tension they work out of muscles, how many updos they sculpt, or how many times clients request they make lightsaber sounds during laser hair removal, the staff at The Galleria Day Spa keeps learning about the latest beauty and health trends. This devotion to continuing education informs each service, from bikini waxes to gel manicures. Skin treatments, such as facials and peels, rely on formulas from Dermalogica and GlyMed Plus, and the staff reaches for similarly high-end products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil during salon services.
To help clients maintain a sun-kissed glow all year round, Illuminations Tanning and Teeth Whitening outfits its contemporary loft space—tucked within Chelmsford Sports Club—with advanced Sun Capsule tanning beds. These high-powered systems come in both lay-down and standup forms, and each capsule is equipped with powerful UV bulbs that bronze skin in 9 to 12 minutes. Built-in overhead fans kept bodies cool in the VHR-69 and Cyclone booths, whereas the facial lamps in the Starpower 548 and 52/4F beds ensure complexions get a golden glow to match the rest of the body. The salon's collection of Devoted Creations lotions, protective eye goggles, and decorative stickers further enhances tanning sessions, whereas spray-tan services offer a UV-free alternative. Understanding that a bright, white smile is the best complement to any tan, Illuminations provides in-house teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home teeth-whitening kits, which can be used in the privacy of one's glass-walled home.
