To fulfill her mission of physically and spiritually transforming the individuals in her community, licensed massage therapist Sarah Cheiky transformed a high-ceilinged warehouse space into a health-and-wellness oasis. She and her staff splashed the rooms with sunny shades of yellow and orange, hung artwork from local artists on the walls, and warmed the floors with intricate rugs, successfully creating the holistic haven known as The Studio. Within this cozy domain, the team leads a variety of restorative sessions that focus on whole-body wellness, including yoga classes taught by certified instructors, massage sessions performed by licensed therapists, and traditional energy work to keep chi in check and life force from accidentally turning into magnetic force. Clients put aside the dowsing rod to seek their center during guided meditation classes, and footbaths and infrared saunas draw out toxins from all areas of the body. After emerging from private treatment rooms, clients can refresh themselves in the showers and don superhero costumes in the changing rooms before returning to the real world.
Divine Designs owner Walter Allgood aims to empower patrons with a full slate of ego-boosting beautification services. A self-proclaimed “weaveologist,” Walter accentuates clients’ existing tresses with natural-looking add-ins, and master stylist Norman Staton wields his 17 years of experience to snip and style unruly strands. The multitalented staff also bolsters beauty with nail and waxing services.
Uniek Kreations’ stylists ornament clients with long-lasting Shellac polish and flutterful false lashes. Meticulous nail techs file and trim keratin caps into orderly rounds or chaotic curlicues before glazing toes in polychromatic polish. Fingers get special treatment, reveling in Shellac’s specially formulated system of UV-cured base, color, and top coats. The resilient gel polish resists chipping and smudging for 14 days and brightens digits in a variety of mat and glossy hues. An eyebrow wax relieves arches of unwanted strands, and scrupulous applications of individual false lashes ready peepers to beckon a suitor or snap the top off a jar of pickles with a single flutter.
La Coiffe's décor both relaxes and energizes clients, with a saffron Tuscan villa exterior giving way to a clean, white-walled atmosphere accented with scarlet swirls, crimson furniture, and pops of vibrant chartreuse. One of the salon's licensed massage therapists will relieve stress and rejuvenate sore mind-muscles with your choice of three different types of massage: aromatherapy, therapeutic, and prenatal. Easily offended noses can get over any number of scented slights by blissing out with an aromatherapy massage. The therapeutic massage digs deeper into tissues to target any pains, injuries, or Tremors worms afflicting your soul-sack. A prenatal massage manually melts moms-to-be so that they can better butter the impatient buns in their ovens. You can also upgrade to the 60-minute hot stone massage ($105) or one of the 90-minute massages and pay the difference after the Groupon.
