The stylists at J.Nicolle Salon & Spa clip and color hair into appealing new 'dos with the aid of Aveda products. Using the pure botanical ingredients of Aveda shampoos and conditioners, they hydrate tresses or repair the damage caused by the advances of amorous hot plates. To complement hairstyles, aestheticians enhance complexions with lash extensions, makeup applications, and waxes. Nail technicians attend to extremities, grooming fingernails and toenails until they look sharp and professional.
After enduring a year of unemployment, Mark Allen faced fear and uncertainty. He walked away from a car crash as a teenager, but on reaching his 30s, the accident's effects—chronic headaches, plus a shoulder problem—continued intensifying to the point where he could no longer work. Unsure of what to do, he visited a chiropractor, and, in a few weeks, his injuries had diminished. Convinced that chiropractic treatments had changed his life, Mark enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic, graduated with honors in 1986, and opened Plus Care Chiropractic & Wellness Center soon after.
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen and his partner, Dr. April Simmons, work with a team of massage therapists to free patients of musculoskeletal maladies while also educating them on whole-body well-being. At each client's first appointment, the physicians conduct an in-depth consultation covering present and past health concerns, followed by a physical examination including a battery of tests. After analyzing the results, Plus Care's team recommends integrated-care regimens, which may include chiropractic adjustments using equipment such as a Thompson table. Further treatments can range from massage and acupuncture to guidance on how to infuse everyday meals with helium.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, micro needling, and botox the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
Relying equally on advanced cosmetic technology and a highly experienced staff, Glo Spa sets out to address common skincare concerns without surgery. The full-service spa's arsenal of equipment includes microcurrent and ultrasound technology, which can help restore skin's youthful tone and radiance. Chemical peels thoroughly exfoliate faces, and a variety of specialized facials treat everything from acne to rosacea. For an additional dose of beautification, Glo Spa encourages visitors to lounge in its therapeutic infrared sauna or schedule a teeth-whitening treatment to brighten smiles.
Some things just belong together, such as peanut butter and jelly or a skydiver and a parachute. Vital Touch Salon & Spa offers another exciting duo: massage and hairstyling. After soliciting an aesthetician for a scissor cut and highlights, guests may request a soothing bodywork session from the salon's licensed massage therapist, Krissy Archer.
Sarah, the trained hands behind Massage by Sarah, offers more than two handfuls of upgrades to her Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages. Her sessions can be complemented with nearly a dozen extras, including heated stones, hot towels, a full-body salt glow, and skin-softening paraffin wax.
