In music, the term adagio means "slow tempo." Likewise, Salon Adagio serves as an oasis amid the hectic bustle of daily life, commanding clients to relax with a variety of spa and salon treatments. The spa's aestheticians erase blemishes with chemical peels or use noninvasive ultrasonic technology to jump-start collagen production and firm skin tone, and massage therapists relieve muscle tension with relaxing or therapeutic modalities. Along with painting nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, technicians round out mani-pedis with soothing paraffin treatments and scented scrubs. At the salon, stylists shape tresses into trendy new looks, and a Mystic Tan booth—available at the Rogers location—bronzes skin evenly without exposing it to the harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds and solar-powered calculators.
The licensed massage therapists at Ideal Massage extol massage as more than just a relaxing luxury. Although their massages can in fact induce sublime serenity, the team focuses more on the therapeutic aspect of massage. They gear their strokes to not only relieve headaches and muscle tension but to boost energy, improve sleep, and increase mental function.
Notes of relaxing music float through the air within the warm and welcoming private rooms of Massage Retreat & Spa, mingling sometimes with the rhythmic tapping of fingers across sore muscles or the silence of relaxation. While the spa’s massage therapists melt away aches and pains with smooth Swedish strokes, warm stones, or liquid-hot magma, their aesthetician counterparts indulge complexions with cleansing facials, waxing sessions, and treatments for eyebrows and eyelashes.
Though their menu of available sessions can seem overwhelming at first, the spa’s staff takes the time to tailor each treatment to clients’ individual needs; a health questionnaire and customer profile—required of first-time visitors—assists their efforts to pinpoint your unique ailments and concerns. An online Health Resource Center similarly typifies their uncommon dedication to individual care with its trove of helpful health and lifestyle tips and interactive chats with massage therapists and skincare specialists.
The experienced stylists at The Beauty Lab work to summon the natural beauty from men, women, and children by performing precision cuts and color services, using products and treatments from top brands such as L'anza and Davines. Fueled by the belief that healthy hair extends beyond the salon, the team also educates guests on how to take care of their hair at home once its been smoothed out and softened. Aestheticians take to private rooms, keeping skin smooth and even with waxing services and facials, and The Beauty Lab's nail technicians and makeup artists stand by to pretty up nails or carefully conceal second noses.
Owners Tracy Kuss and Christy Strand-Kolb share a passion for hairstyling, and they channeled that excitement into opening VanStrand Hair Salon in 2001. Their mission was to create a salon that provided high-quality haircuts, perms, and waxing treatments at reasonable prices. Creating a friendly place to visit and socialize was equally important to them, and today the two love how their salon gives them an opportunity to meet new people and establish relationships with return clients. To keep the vibe upbeat and fun, Tracy and Christy surround themselves with a team of equally passionate, talented, and amicable hair sculptors. Pairing their skills with top-shelf products such as American Crew and Phyto Organics, the stylists stick to their high standards and leave their customers with ‘dos as stylish and sleek as a Ferrari dressed in Versace.
From rehabilitating muscles after an injury to giving a stressed client an hour of instant R & R, Neva Massage Center’s licensed massage therapists are led by certified therapists Leonid–trained in both Europe and America– and Iryna, a medical doctor in Russia. They tailor a range of modalities to every sort of need. Their classic long and smooth Swedish massage shoos away stress lingering between muscles, like a vacuum cleaner shoos away a dog that loves a good dirty carpet. They apply deep-tissue therapy’s concentrated pressure to injuries or points of chronic pain, whether in the head, neck, or back. Neva's therapists can also target muscle spasms, insomnia, edema, and depression with their meticulous kneads. They take relaxation a step further with hot stones, warm towels, and therapeutic scents, and they lengthen their clients’ “me time” with 90-minute extended massages.
