Stylist and owner Robin DiPaolo designed Blue Orchid Salon and Spa to facilitate thorough relaxation with head-to-toe treatments. Besides standard cuts and colors, stylists calm wild hair textures with treatments such as japanese hair straightening, chemical relaxers, or soothing whale songs. On the spa side, aestheticians customize facials to each customer’s skin type, while massage therapists enhance Swedish or deep-tissue strokes with body polishes and hot stones.
If Dr. Louis has a special way of relating to his patients, it's because he was once a patient himself. After suffering a high-school football injury that traditional medicine couldn’t fully treat, he found his way to a chiropractor and never looked back. His experience inspired him to pursue a career in chiropractic, and Select Wellness Chiropractic, LLC represents the culmination of that goal.
At the full-service wellness center, Dr. Louis abides by a whole-person approach that targets the sources of pain rather than the symptoms. He specializes in treating athletic injuries sustained while sprinting to the finish, diving for the goal line, or giving the linemen a celebratory piggyback ride. In addition to chiropractic treatments, he and his staff offer Swedish and hot-stone massages designed to ease general stress and tension.
In 1992, Darek Zurawski founded the Lymphatic Therapy Center to offer manual lymph-drainage therapy, which uses massage-like motions to cleanse the body's lymphatic system. Today, he and his team use this technique not only to treat lymphedema—a condition that leads to swollen limbs—but also to alleviate chronic pain and banish aches. The center also offers therapeutic massages to help people relax from everyday stresses, such as office meetings or forced small talk with the bridge troll on their morning commutes.
Eli, the licensed massage therapist at Lotus Rays Alignment, has administered more than 11,000 massages over the course of her career. Believing that illness is the result of stagnant life energy, Eli most often performs signature healing massages, which blend various techniques with aromatherapy, mantras, Tibetan bells rung to the tune of Miles Davis’s “Move,” and Swedish and shiatsu strokes. She performs such treatments at Lotus Rays Alignment, a storefront studio with framed paintings lining the interior’s inviting, pastel walls.
Maximizing beauty is the main goal of the staff at Serenity Hair & Spa, but they make sure to pamper clients along the way. Their stylists condition, cut and style hair, or infuse it with luscious texture during protein conditioning treatments.
On the spa side, Serenity's aestheticians elongate eyelashes one by one with 3-D extensions. Sothys facial treatments correct issues such as acne or dry skin, and fragrant salt scrubs leave skin radiant from head to toe.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
