Kalologie's expert beauty gurus offer a first-class selection of pampering services, earning the franchise a spot on Elle magazine's 2008 list of Top 10 Beauty Boutiques. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body. Airbrush spray tans round out the menu of services, leaving bodies with a bronze hue similar to that achieved by bathing in a tub of melted-down doorknobs.
As the name suggests, Cinema Wellness takes a panoramic approach to health, labeling itself 'an aesthetic whole-body boutique". The spa's clients can solicit skilled aestheticians for an organic mani-pedi, hair removal, or especially indulgent treatments ranging from chemical peels and facials to full-body exfoliating scrubs. The spa also staffs a team of licensed massage therapists to temper achy sinews with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure. When not pampering clients within in their elegant facility, many of Cinema's wellness warriors proudly volunteer for The American Cancer Society.
Stress can manifest physically as well as mentally. At Heavena Spa, the therapists dedicate themselves to alleviating the aches, pains, and anxiety that stress can cause by performing massages that provide a serene break from the hectic pace of everyday life. Gentle lighting and calming earth tones surround clients as they relax in private treatment rooms while a therapist pinpoints the sources of withheld tension. From there, the therapist can soothe knotted muscles using gliding Swedish strokes, focused deep-tissue pressure, gentle Thai stretching, or a combination of modalities.
The Art of You Holistic Center heals bodies with relaxing treatments performed both indoors and out. Classic facials and back treatments evict dirt from the skin, and massages?which range from deep tissue to Swedish?turn tense muscles into butter. The center also offers acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine and only uses natural products that are free of parabens, sulfates, and poltergeists.
When Tanya M. Reynolds was an adolescent, she was diagnosed with cervical dysplasia. After suffering through several unsuccessful surgeries, she finally found relief in a chiropractor, whose adjustments and dietary recommendations helped mollify the pre-cancerous condition. Today, inspired by that early miracle, Tanya—now known as Dr. Reynolds—helms her own clinic, In8Love Chiropractic, where she has spent more than a decade relieving her own clients’ ailments, from disc problems to back spasms caused by tossing telephone poles in the Scottish Highlands. Her vast range of treatment plans includes cold laser therapy, which soothes issues such as tendonitis and arthritis, and custom foot orthotics, which help align spines by ensuring a balanced pedestal. Beyond comforting funny bones stuck in uninspired sitcoms, Dr. Reynolds’ office also offers relaxing, therapeutic massages.
