The licensed therapists and aestheticians of Serenity Massage and Bodyworks practice their crafts within private treatment rooms, where mental and physical clarities intertwine during facials, body wraps, and the soothing massage therapies alluded to in the spa’s name. Massage therapists draw on a full repertoire of modalities—from the relaxing effleurage and percussion movements of Swedish massage to the focused, healing pressures of deep-tissue massage—to appease muscles knotted from sleeping on hard floors or Twister mats. Reiki healing techniques, which work to strengthen the bonds between mind, body, and spirit, best exemplify the massage therapists’ concern for holistic healing. Their aesthetician counterparts allow this same concern to inform their facials and body wraps, which call upon the detoxifying powers of vitamins and minerals to chase away impurities and blemishes.
A haircut isn?t just a haircut for stylist Lauren. She starts off each appointment learning her clients? grooming routine, face shape, and hair type to create the most flattering looks. Then she gets to work, snipping off split ends and adding any desired layers or bangs. For those clients who'd prefer longer hair instead, Lauren sews in weaves. To change up hair colors, she mixes dye in classic blond or turquoise hues that pepper locks with face-framing highlights, and Lauren also offers keratin treatments that smooth frizzy and curly hair.
When hairstylist Scott Schuman opened Illusions in 1990, he was joined by a team of cosmetologists and stylists who also happened to be his longtime friends. With this tight-knit crew in tow, Scott and his business partner, Teri, opened up the salon’s current location, a sun-drenched space with wooden floors and glimmering display cases filled with professional-grade hair products. The staffers, who consider themselves members of the same extended family, perform a wide array of salon services, from men’s and women’s cuts to color treatments and elegant updos suited for formal events or fancy games of laser tag.
