Located inside the Center for the Healing Arts, Eco-Massage by Fanny strives to heal clients while supporting a healthy environment. To that effect, the studio's owner, holistic massage therapist Fanny Mandelberger, can augment her repertoire of massage kneads with eco-conscience, therapeutic-grade linaments and oils. Bodywork techniques such as integrative reflexology, Ayurvedic aromatherapy, mindful meditation, and breath work complement the massages.
Aza Wellness is home to experienced and licensed massage therapist and holistic health practitioner Razan Gregory, a graduate of the Baltimore School of Massage. In a cozy environment, clients receive a one-hour signature massage ($65) that combines calming Swedish-massage techniques, a muscle-untensing deep-tissue massage, stretching for increased range of motion, and rocking movements gentle enough to balance bodies. Afterward, patients can relax with a 25-minute anti-aging facial massage ($50), which exfoliates before massaging the facial/neck/décolleté zones, cleansing with a honey mask, hydrating, and applying an essential-oil-drenched hot towel. The treatment turns an adult face into that of a baby adult or just a baby.
The makeup artists at the organic beauty boutique apply 100% nontoxic beauty products, and during the half-hour makeup application, only the likes of RMS Beauty, Julie Hewett, Vapour, and other natural brands will grace your face. The Still Point's trained appliers will work with you to create a customized look for any special event or reality-show audition. Opt for a dramatic dusting of color to the cheeks to appear appropriately rosy, or request expertly lined eyes to enhance a striking facial feature, your earlobes. The application also includes detailed instructions on how to replicate the look in front of a mirror at home or in an amusement park.
Guests pass by the ArtIz Gallery Lounge’s walls adorned with the work of local artists before entering The Art Spa, where they benefit from the expertise of licensed aesthetician Ms. Cherie. In addition to three types of facials, she and her team expertly remove unwanted hair as painlessly as possible during more than 25 waxing treatments. To beautify blinks, she applies eyelash extensions using both flares and individual lashes.
Katrina — the hands behind the shears at The Art Spa — has styled, extended, and colored hair for 20 years. She uses the Wella line of products, aptly called Color Charm and noted for its ability to cover gray hairs. She also remains conscientious about hair health when selecting her other products, choosing brands that are free of sulfate.
