Robert Anthony's stylists and aestheticians administer hair, nail, and skin treatments in an alabaster-white salon accented with light-hued wood furnishings. Styling chairs face floor-to-ceiling mirrors where hairdressers manipulate tresses with professional products by brands such as Redken and Pureology, and nail stations are situated in front of expansive windows that reveal river views. During massages, clients lie comfortably in private treatment rooms as therapists knead away muscle tension and worries, which slide off the table to be later swept up by the evening cleaning staff.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
UniqueLink Life Coaching's seasoned massage therapists instigate a mass exodus of stresses and pains during 60 minutes of therapeutic or deep-tissue kneading. Gentle hands glissade, thrust, and electric boogaloo over the body's terrain, using circular motions designed to bolster bodily circulation and weed out stresses that beleaguer backs more acutely than porcupine-lined ponchos. Alternatively, therapists utilize intense pressure during deep-tissue massages to make their way into the sinewy depths, working to unwind tense knots and free musculature from the bondage of long-standing aches. Patrons may upgrade to a 90-minute massage for an additional $15, due at the time of service.
Everyone?and every body?is different. The massage therapists at Absolute Massage understand this, and as such use a variety of techniques to soothe muscles, ease stress, or reduce swelling. This includes tactics such as the flowing Swedish massage and the intense deep-tissue massage, along with prenatal massages and cranio sacral therapy. Absolute Massage also offers cupping, ear candling, and raindrop therapy. During this last service, the massage therapist drips nine essential oils along the spine, creating the soothing sensation of a light rain or a gently leaking waterbed. He or she then applies moist, warm towels to the spine and back so the oils penetrate the body quickly for therapeutic benefits.
An entire wedding party, captured mid-jump. A family with their sparkling Christmas tree. A child dribbling a soccer ball against a background of laser effects. Since 1988, the photo team behind Fashion Mystique Photography has been capturing images like these at portrait shoots and special events. They can cover parties without even attending, too, thanks to their rental photo booths, which let party guests call the shots and don as many oversized sunglasses as they want.
When founding Park Avenue Salon and Spa, owner Lynne Zsido assembled an experienced staff of licensed professionals, many with decades of experience. With an eye to environmental responsibility, the beautification crew assesses an armory of products by Bare Escentuals, CND, and Marcia Teixeira. Beyond the spa's emerald-hued door, smooth stones steep in warmth in preparation for romps across tired muscles or bank vaults carved from butter. Sweet nothings drift from massage sessions for couples, and soothing and cleansing elixirs wrought from Hershey's chocolate, jojoba oil, and almonds broadcast a dulcet bouquet.
