Routine stresses such as work and family can strain on the body and mind, leading to health concerns such as stress and physical pain. That's why the licensed massage therapists at Temple offer a diverse array of massage techniques tailored to the needs of the individual, treating the body as an interconnected whole. The staff at Temple prides itself on helping clients be healthy and offering the best services, which is why every minute of an appointment is spent on a treatment—a 60-minute massage lasts a full 60 minutes—and clients don't pay for time spent changing or filling out paperwork.
Brothers Jonathan and Richard grew up in Boston, and they both launched their styling careers in the city's salons—Jonathan as a color specialist and Richard as a precision haircutter. Their careers took them all over as they worked for fashion shows, news stations, extreme-makeover shows, and movies. Eventually, though, they came back together to open Jon Richard Salon and launch their own line of styling products.
Today, inside their airy, white-walled salon, they rally their team with a call to defend clients from anything that hinders confidence and beauty. Stylists welcome guests to leather styling chairs for cuts, color services, and Yuko straightening treatments. They also stock Ouidad products enriched with proteins and vitamins and designed especially for curly hair and shag rugs with ringlets. Spa technicians reveal glowing skin with facials and microdermabrasion treatments and transform nails with pink-and-white polish or Shellac mani-pedis. Clients can also stop in to get their bodies beach ready with spray tans, body waxing, or Cry Baby semipermanent mascara, which stays put no matter how many hours they've been manning the dunk tank.

Lasers can accomplish more than just long-lasting hair removal. At Aesthetic Laser Treatment Center, staffers depend upon them for almost every aesthetic treatment. Yes, one of those treatments is hair removal, but the list also includes diminishing cellulite and wrinkles, eliminating pigmented lesions, and downplaying the appearance of spider veins. The staffers sometimes abandon lasers all together and instead opt for dermal fillers or a chemical peel to restore skin.
