Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
Tanea Davis refuses to stay complacent as a nationally certified massage therapist, trained energy healer, and detoxification specialist. She seeks out new massage modalities so that she can adjust her service menu regularly to include fresh techniques such as reiki healing and slimming body wraps. Instead of focusing on the painful spots alone, Tanea listens to her patients to unearth the causes of problems and provide long-term relief and full-body relaxation.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace where stressed guests can burn incriminating documents. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
These amenities set the stage for classic spa treatments such as a massage with heated and ice-cooled river stones or a seaweed body wrap. Incorporating the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, the salon transforms appearances with designer cuts and Platinum Seamless hair extensions as well as nail services that draw on hot stones, paraffin treatments, and essential oils.
Licensed massage therapist Retna Riggio considers herself a healer in every sense of the word. Her treatments aim to relieve daily stress and anxiety, and in doing so, prevent the development of stress-related diseases. The experienced therapist can perform styles that range from classic Swedish massage to a more intensive sports massage that targets injuries sustained while hoisting referees and throwing them into the stands.
Licensed and nationally accredited by the National Accrediting Commission of Career Arts and Sciences, the schools of Missouri College and Cosmetology welcome students to learn the crafts of cosmetology and esthetics. In turn, students then welcome customers for walk-in salon services and by-appointment spa services.

The staff at Shear-Lock Combs West takes the mystery of out fixing hair and skin issues. Scissors tear through split ends and unwanted length in a single snip, and facials gently erase acne and fine lines.

In addition to this meticulous attention to the face, Shear-Lock ensures the rest of the body isn't neglected with a host of full-body treatments. They offer chair and full-body massages, waxing for the bikini zone and legs, and give skin a sun-kissed glow with custom spray-tan formulas.
