Once a licensed athletic trainer at the University of North Texas, Laura DePiazza calls on her corporeal expertise to assuage muscular tension with a spectrum of massage modalities. Before each treatment, she takes time to discuss issues with clients, whether they have questions about technique or mysterious pockets of tension. While she specializes in Swedish and sports massage, she also culls from several modalities during more targeted pro massage, which includes deep-tissue, myofascial, and trigger-point techniques, focusing on specific body parts if necessary. To customize each massage, Laura is also willing to collaborate with the client’s chiropractor and physician.
The human body is intricate, complex, and surprisingly fragile. It easily sustains injury from high impact events such as sports or auto accidents, or even the simple repetitive motions of a job. Hickory Creek Rehab and Chiropractic's Doctor of Chiropractic Noel Mairena specializes in identifying the root of such wounds, often hidden within layers of tissue and bone. He employs spinal adjustments, medical massage, and rehabilitative exercises, providing pain relief and encouraging the body to mend itself.
Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda. Aveda's environmentally conscious, naturally derived products infuse all of Tangerine's salon services. Seven tiers of hairstylists—ranging from Protégé I to Master III—handle the hairstyling duties by snipping, highlighting, and conditioning locks. At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
At Shawn Kristopher Salon, stylists ply men’s and women’s locks with cuts, colors, and texturizing treatments, tailoring manes to fit their owners’ face shapes. Aestheticians can also nourish faces themselves with facials, such as the signature house facial, or treatments that brighten eye areas without the hassle of Christmas-light lash extensions. While facials can firm aging skin, the salon’s triad of dermal fillers—Dysport, Perlane, and Restylane—eradicates wrinkles semipermanently. Alternatively, massage therapists can beautify physiques by relaxing them with modalities ranging from classic Swedish to aromatherapy, which draws on relaxing scents such as chamomile, lavender, and burning tax forms.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
