For years, people have likened stress to illness, and a recent study by Carnegie Mellon University suggests that chronically stressed individuals have trouble fighting off disease. In this case, science is just saying what Tangela B. Gaynor of Blue Diamond Spa Studio has known all along: stress is more than a pain in the neck.
A licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist, Tangela helps clients escape from everyday anxiety with one of seven massage techniques: aromatherapy, chair, Swedish, reflexology, hot stone, therapeutic, and prenatal. Once aches and pains have subsided, clients can take advantage of other services, such as body waxing or synthetic eyelash extensions in styles such as natural, dazzling, or constantly undulating.
Developed in the early 1920s by Japanese spiritualist Mikao Usui, reiki is a healing art that holds roots in Buddhist practices but is in no way limited to practitioners of a specific religion. Aesthetician Laura Keller embraces the technique?s ancient roots while embracing the treatment?s use of modern technology. Keller?s service menu includes reiki healing and chakra cleansing, and also lists modern facial treatments that take advantage of high-end products from San?tas, Dermalogica, and Image Skincare. At the higher end of her scientific-treatment spectrum, Keller utilizes the Beautiful Image 900 to lend facial regions a smooth, even complexion.
The seven stylists of Beyond Hair Studio and Spa cut, color, snip, paint, and primp to keep hair and nails looking their snazziest. Patrons might stop by for quick new coats of nail polish or for wildly different new 'dos, but whatever the reason, they're treated to thorough, attentive service.

From there, you'll face dive into a European facial that deeply cleanses your pores and puts a metaphorical leaf blower on dead, clingy skin cells, unveiling new shoots of radiance below. Topped with a freshly shampooed and snipped head of hair, you'll look so sharp that the horse-drawn-carriage driver won't recognize you when you step out the door.
