The mother-daughter team of Alison and Kristen Pope boasts more than 30 years of combined experience in the professional pampering industry and run a. Salon Galleria & Spa with a soft, well-moisturized fist. Though Kristen originally followed in her mother?s footsteps to become a nail technician, she later added licensed cosmetologist, certified massage therapist, and hairstylist to her resume, which explains the lengthy roster of services that the salon boasts. Alison, Kristen, and their staff also host parties for children and adults, sometimes arming older customers with champagne flutes. Visitors can receive hairstyling or makeovers or dip toes into a heated whirlpool tub before each digit submits to buffing, shaping, polishing, and a rigorous cleaning behind their ears.
Christin takes care of her clients from head to toe, performing everything from seasonal facials to foot reflexology treatments. In addition to using her hands to revitalize skin and muscles, she also revamps looks with waxing treatments and make-up applications.
A soundtrack of "relaxation music" fills the air with hymn-like vocals or a quiet instrumental hum, over which speakers layer the sound of trickling rain. Thanks to touches like these, the calming ambiance at Balancing Touch Massage starts to soothe away patrons' stress before massages even begin.
But only when massage therapists take charge do muscles truly start to melt. The highly trained staffers attack tension and soreness with customized sessions that include Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. Additionally, they enhance pampering with organic facials and body scrubs.
