Because licensed massage therapist Michelle Reid is trained in an array of bodywork modalities and kneading techniques, she can customize her treatments to the unique aches and ailments of each and every client on her table. Relaxing Swedish massages improve range of motion and boost circulation, whereas more intense deep-tissue treatments delve into the lower layers of tissue to root out chronic tension, toxins, and stampeding charley horses. Pregnancy massages pamper the bodies of mamas-to-be, and sports massages help improve athletic performance.
Licensed massage therapist Galina Korovnik discovered a knack for the trade at age 18, when she got a job giving back rubs at a chiropractic clinic. Since then, she has pursued her talents for massage therapy and opened Belladona’s Massage, soothing clients and mollifying muscular aches with Swedish and deep-tissue treatments.
The staff at Vida Salon and Spa strives to create an atmosphere that rejuvenates body and mind. Their focus on relaxation and a wide variety of services has earned them nominations for Best Day Spa and Best Hair Salon in CityVoter's Best of Spokane 2010 awards and a win for Best Hair Company - Women by Inland Business Catalyst Magazine. Patrons can listen to the gentle trickling of an elegant stone fountain while stylists transform hair with products such as L'Oréal Professionnel's ammonia-free INOA color. Skincare experts use the Dermalogica line for a variety of anti-aging facials, and massage therapists ease muscle tension with heated stones.
Nail technicians beautify toes in the pedicure area, which is decorated in cheerful pink and orange tones. Stone tiled floors and stately pillars create an Old World European ambiance reminiscent of the Florentine spa where staffers cleared bits of marble and paint from Michelangelo's fingertips.
True Colors Salon's owner recently remodeled the place, adding modern texture and color to all the furnishings. Stylists perform much the same service upon peoples' hair, creating new looks for their clients. Meanwhile, therapists sooth muscular tension with massages, and technicians shape nails and paint them with unique nail art. Chazidie Lane adds even more variety to the services with her specialized skin treatments that restore moisture to winter-weather- or sun-damaged skin. She combines her facials with hair removal, shaping eyebrows or removing lip fuzz with the aid of hot wax.
