HealthSource provides a full range of services for keeping bodies in line, specializing in chiropractic care, massage, and rehabilitation. Massage therapists manipulate distressed deltoids with hands licensed in therapeutic massage and shadow-puppet recitals, relieving pain and tension from shoulders and backs. The chiropractic consultation provides guests with a detailed overview of causes behind specific symptoms, as well as recommended courses of action, all with a greater success rate than using a fly swatter to squash disobedient aches and pains.
Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
At The Sanctuary Spa, visitors escape the hustle and bustle of the outside world with relaxing and beautifying services performed by a veteran cast of aestheticians, makeup artists, and massage therapists. Facials thoroughly cleanse and calm epidermal expanses, and microdermabrasion treatments and peels exfoliate away dead skin cells, wrinkles, and forgotten notes to self. The staff’s beauty-boosting repertoire also includes eyelash and eyebrow tinting, eyelash extensions, airbrush tanning services, waxing, and vajazzling. For a tranquil way to celebrate special events, such as upcoming nuptials, clients can also schedule private parties at The Sanctuary Spa.
Black and taupe accents complement the mint-hued walls of Eye Candi Concept Salon, creating a simple yet elegant beauty retreat. Inside this tranquil space, beauty specialists target all aesthetic and relaxation needs with a full menu of makeup, hair-removal, threading, and massage treatments. Lashes receive an extra boost in volume and length with semi-permanent extensions, mascara, and perms, and talented makeup artists teach beauty seekers the art of applying eye makeup. Hair-removal experts use an organic sugar concoction to gently remove stubble from the face and body or twist and retract cotton threads to add the perfect arch to brows or mustaches. While the beauty purveyors cast their magic, massage therapists tackle internal well-being with stress-melting deep-tissue, hot-stone, and therapeutic treatments.
The "five" in Five At Peace Massage Studio represents the five senses, each of which is systematically awakened during the spa's sumptuous facial, massage, and body treatments. The sounds of classical music, rhythmic beats, and crashing waves suffuse the treatment rooms and lobby with their calming, mesmeric influence, encouraging clients to begin the relaxation process like a starting gun loaded with aromatherapeutic blanks. A complimentary glass of tea, coffee, or wine fills the nose and taste buds as the liquids energize and relax in preparation for the spa pampering ahead. As an aesthetician performs decadent coffee- or chocolate-infused body treatments, clients breathe in the sweet and smoky aromas and unspool tension while their skin is exfoliated and plumped with moisture. Exotic massages spur achy muscles toward healing, including sports-specific therapies and a Thai herbal compress, during which the massage therapist applies cloth soaked in a warm herbal mixture to the joints to help boost mobility by easing swelling and loosening too-tight connective tissue. Aestheticians turn their healing hands to the face, where rhythmic cleansing can work to purge congested skin during the detoxifying facial, or bring back a youthful glow during treatments such as the caviar-and-pearl facial, a favorite with clients showing signs of aging or turning into a sea lion.
The doctor and nurses dedicate their time to espousing the benefits of natural healing at Advanced Allergy Centers. Here, the team and BioVeda Technology identify allergens via noninvasive methods, working to decrease allergic reactions such as headaches, fatigue, and bloating. Patients repose in private exam rooms as the team uses advanced technology and techniques to read the body’s response when exposed to a variety of substances. Once the top stressors have been identified, the team works to alter the body’s reaction to it and reduce the sensitivity, rashes, or uncontrollable desire to ride a police horse it may cause.
In 1999, Allyssa Bedard earned her bachelor's degree in psychology and women's studies from the University of Massachusetts. By 2001, she began helping people feel better physically as well as mentally. She earned her license in massage therapy, later obtaining special certifications in orthopedic massage and prenatal massage.
Within Soma Holistic Therapy Center, Bedard soothes muscles and joints with modalities such as deep-tissue kneads. Sessions aim to reduce pain such as chronic neck and back pain, pain caused by sports injuries, TMJ disorder, migraines, and repetitive-motion injuries. Patrons can also choose craniosacral therapy, which releases neck tension and back pain by improving the flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the spine.
