From nail repair to UV gels, Artistic Nails & Spa offers services and treatments that turn every finger and toe into a work of art. Acrylic, pink-and-whites, and glitter nails are a few examples of artificial sets that can ramp up nails that have been damaged or chewed by anxious winter gloves. To pamper clients, staff members also offer lavish treatments such as the luxury combo mani-pedi, which includes cooling gel, a foot mask, and a 20-minute massage. During all treatments, hands and feet receive the full attention of a technician, who dotes over each extremity with patience and polish. The nail spa bookends its service menu with skilled nail art and quick polish changes for on-the-go clients.
As a dancer and choreographer, Keith Clark knows firsthand how the body moves, balances, stretches—and experiences soreness. He brings this knowledge to his massage practice, where he often addresses pain associated with athletic activity. His sports massages utilize a medley of techniques, including trigger-point therapy and deep-tissue kneads, to both prevent and treat injuries. He also customizes massages to alleviate ailments ranging from migraines and carpal tunnel to disco fever. However, not all of his services are meant to offset physical symptoms. Some, like the Stress Away massage, combat anxiety and mental tension by blending aromatherapy with reflexology to help restore the body's sense of balance.
Larry North has spent his 25-year career inspiring people to change their bodies and their lives through his infomercials, talk-radio show, television appearances, three books, and, most notably, his six Larry North fitness centers. "Success," North believes, "is not about how many gyms or how many members we have. It is about successful clients who lose weight and keep it off..." Adhering to this mantra, he wants to make sure that every member has access to the best resources and tools to achieve their goals. He sees to it that all of his spacious and sleek gyms boast a high trainer-to-member ratio and are jam-packed with weights, strength machines, and cardio equipment from industry-leading manufacturers.
All North's spacious and chic facilities offer a bevy of group classes that include kickboxing, yoga, Pilates, dance-based fitness sessions, and their signature 30-minute abs workouts.
Massage49's goal is to curate an experience that's both relaxing and uplifting. That's why the studio staffs both male and female massage therapists?to accommodate clients' preferences?and why it limits cell phone use, since annoying rings and loud conversations are not exactly conducive to comfort and healing. Of course, the real healing happens within the private treatment rooms; the team here has designed roughly 15 different massage treatments to accommodate a wide range of needs. In addition to standards like Swedish and deep-tissue massage, therapists also offer a four-hands massage and a Swedish-Reiki hybrid massage. They even offer massages tailored to specific conditions, including a cancer massage, prenatal massage, restless legs massage, and compulsive jazz hands massage. Lavish spa treatments, meanwhile, round out the menu with options such as a desert stone body polish or an herbal body scrub infused with peppermint and rosemary or French lavender.
