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.
Muscle Management 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.
The skilled aestheticians at Simply You, a newly minted spa, cleanse and hydrate skin with custom body wraps and facials. Before swathing clients in wraps, skincare experts soak the bandages in all-natural, organic mineral solutions such as seaweed extract or cubic-zirconia pulp. As the curative ingredients soak the limbs and the torso, excess fat, water, and harmful toxins exit the body. Afterward, aestheticians soothe visages with a mini facial customized to each client's skin type. Clients slacken their facial muscles as a beautician sloughs away dead skin cells, nourishes the underlying layer, and readies newly gleaming pores for their senior portraits.
Through loyal customers and enthusiastic referrals, the skincare specialists at Essentials Laser & Med Spa refresh skin and slather on the relaxation in a soothing environment. While friends and family members relish facials and massages, technicians target sagging skin, prickly fuzz, and unwanted lumps with laser beams, Botox, and medical-grade steamrollers.
