The aestheticians at Clarity MediSpa help clients look and feel their best through beauty and wellness treatments. Wielding the Alexandrite laser, they blast away at unwanted hair on nearly any area of the body or take aim at sun spots, wrinkles, and undeveloped polaroids with IPL photo rejuvenation. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses bodies from the inside, while ionithermie body masks promote detoxification from the outside. Facials and injectable fillers fight the signs of aging without surgery, and soothing massages banish stress.
The beauty experts at Dreamers Day Spa employ Aveda and Dermalogica products to boost visitors' natural radiance in a sumptuously appointed spa washed in delicate neutral tones. Guests can indulge in pampering from head to toe, letting hairstylists snip tresses into face-flattering shapes, nail techs buff digits into glamorous fingertip accessories, and skin whisperers restore a healthy glow so luminous it could shame fireflies back into their mason jars. Glossy parquet floors reflect the glow of stained-glass windows and crystal chandeliers, and licensed massage therapists knead away tension in any of eight massage styles. Stylish moulding and vaulted ceilings in private treatment rooms create a hyper-luxurious environment for surreptitious midmassage naps.
At Full Stride Wellness, experienced massage therapists gear their services to virtually any musculoskeletal need. Athletes benefit from the clinic's sports massages, which help them increase flexibility and prevent injury, while expectant mothers find relief from their baby's in-utero gymnastics with Craniosacral massages. Other modalities cater to anyone looking to relax or for pain relief; the therapists can perform gentle Swedish strokes. Nutritional supplements and fitness equipment help clients stay healthy between visits, and convenient membership programs keep them coming back for discounted massages.
New York Dominican Beauty Salon evokes big-city glamour in its cozy Randallstown salon. After haircuts, stylists can blow out hair into flyaway-free ’dos and add all-over color or highlights. The salon can also straighten and smooth hair with keratin treatments or lengthen it with weaves and medieval incantations.
K.I.N.G Massage's licensed massage therapist Kingston R. Holcomb enlists the tantalizing strokes of the Swedish and deep-tissue modalities to eliminate stress and relax clients. Surrounded by calming aqua walls, the musculature maestro orchestrates a symphony of serene sighs by incorporating soothing lotions and gentle, rolling strokes to the Swedish massage. Deep-tissue treatments employ firm, targeted pressure that dissolve chronic pain caused by repetitive motions or injury. The therapist encourages clients to communicate their comfort level throughout the deep-tissue visit, and clients should consume plenty of fluids before and after to help flush out toxins and goldfish loitering in the body.
Unlike many massage therapists, Hands To You Wellness Studio owner Zina Sanders incorporates holistic healing elements into her treatments to provide additional therapeutic and stress-relieving benefits. Traditional Thai massages take place on floor mats so their yoga-like stretches can be more easily achieved, and integrative reflexology treatments focus exclusively on pinpoints throughout the body to improve balance and circulation and locate the body’s “eject” button. Since graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 1996, Zina has continued to broaden her skills by pursuing ongoing education at various seminars and workshops.
