Healing Hands Massage?s scheduling book never has back-to-back appointments. So if someone has a 60-minute deep-tissue massage at 1 p.m. with licensed massage therapist Howard Dodd?who is also a certified personal trainer and lead instructor of the massage program at Lincoln Technical Institute?s Brockton Campus?there won?t be a Swedish massage at 2 p.m. with Dodd, however, appointments would be available to schedule with another licensed massage therapist. This scheduling approach allows the clients to enjoy their massage service without feeling rushed out the door. Adding to the comfort, the staff can customize its kneads to alleviate pain, tension, and ailments from common sports injuries, such as spraining a muscle or mistaking a bowling ball for a basketball and trying to dunk it.
Though their menu of services is succinct, the practitioners at Simply You can address a multitude of cosmetic concerns. Stylists refresh overgrown tresses with haircuts and coloring services, and nail technicians groom digits with regular and spa mani-pedis. In the spa, aestheticians use Bioelements products to create facials customized for each client’s skin type and likelihood of getting pied in the face. Other specialized treatments confront acne, skin sensitivity, and signs of age.
At Carriage House Salon & Spa, stylists beautify clients’ hair with haircuts and highlights and massage therapists ease aches with soothing heated stones. Aestheticians perform lavish spa manicures, moisturizing cuticles and finishing nails with OPI lacquers.
Whatever Healing Hands Massage lacks in size, it makes up for with compassion. The owners bill the space as a "mom and pop" massage studio and muscle-management center, where therapists greet every client with warmth and a strategy for relief. Depending on their needs, clients can choose from Swedish, deep-tissue, or sports massage or combine the modalities. The therapists will tend to problem areas with the appropriate techniques, addressing sore spots, knots and kinks, or injuries incurred on the field or while holding up the team's bus as the quarterback changed the tire. Healing Hands offers massages in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments.
At Simply You, a recently renovated salon outfitted with lanterns, cushy leather chairs, and colorful greenery, Chelsey helps people update their look with professional cut and color services. She can consult with each client on a variety of styles, whether they're looking to just trim excess length or carve out a whole new shape. She can also even out hair's hue with single-process color or add dimension to strands by weaving in highlights or outfitting all your friends and neighbors with 3D glasses.
