Technicians at Pamper Nails trim and shape nails with sparkling sets of tools. Behind the wrought-iron room divider, brown leather pedicure chairs keep patrons comfortable while technicians smooth heels and lightly massage feet with lotion. The technicians also apply acrylic and gel nails to lengthen short nails or draw attention away from tentacles. While their nails dry, customers may flip through the channels on the flat-screen TV or browse magazines on the coffee table.
Turbo Nail's technicians tend the cuticles of men, women, and children. They offer a full suite of nail-related services, from trimming and shaping to polishing and dipping hands in skin-softening paraffin wax. They also have a few specialties up their sleeves. The milk and honey pedicure, for instance, treats dry skin with a combination of literal milk and honey, along with a bit of sea salt as an exfoliant.

Built-in back massagers greet guests as they sink into Elite Nail Spa's pipeless pedicure chairs, perched above foot jacuzzis with massaging whirlpool jets. Sea-salt scrubs and seaweed or mineral masks help exfoliate and nourish both feet and hands, which don french tips, gel polishes, and other eye-catching accoutrements. The spa also tailors Princess pedicures to children younger than 12 and paints ACT answers on the toenails of high-school seniors. In addition to nail services, Elite Nail Spa treats guests to Swedish, hot-stone, acupressure, and other varieties of massage, as well as custom facials with extractions and vapor treatments.
Natasha Kennedy knows what it feels like to be stressed. Along with being the owner of Aloha! Massage and Spa, the massage therapist is a licensed aesthetician, holistic nutrition coach, nursing student, and mother of five. She uses her knowledge and experience to help others who might be leading busy, stressful, or overwhelming lives. At Alhoa!, she provides five different massage styles including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massage. In LomiLomi massages, she uses her forearm to stroke the body and mimic the waves of the ocean or splash after a cannon ball. Meanwhile, her mommy-to-be and post natal massages aim to ease labor pains and reduce stress. All of her techniques bring about various benefits including improved circulation, enhanced sleep quality, and decreased anxiety.
The staff at Wendy's Spa Services draws on more than 15 years of industry experience to blur the distinction between relaxation and beautification. Though many of their treatments are geared toward achieving aesthetic results, the staff commonly helps promote an inner state of calm with soothing add-ons. Reflexology, for example, can accompany mani-pedis, just as customized facials may include remedies for puffy eyes, and massages regularly make use of hot towels and aromatherapy. The staff relies on their own considerable artistry, as well as products from glo therapeutics, OPI, and Nufree—an alternative to wax that doesn't stick to the skin or cause one to be mistaken for one’s more famous wax-museum counterpart.
