In music, the term adagio means "slow tempo." Likewise, Salon Adagio serves as an oasis amid the hectic bustle of daily life, commanding clients to relax with a variety of spa and salon treatments. The spa's aestheticians erase blemishes with chemical peels or use noninvasive ultrasonic technology to jump-start collagen production and firm skin tone, and massage therapists relieve muscle tension with relaxing or therapeutic modalities. Along with painting nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, technicians round out mani-pedis with soothing paraffin treatments and scented scrubs. At the salon, stylists shape tresses into trendy new looks, and a Mystic Tan booth—available at the Rogers location—bronzes skin evenly without exposing it to the harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds and solar-powered calculators.
Taken from the Spanish word for "conception" or "beginning," Conchita Bodyworkz fosters new, healthy beginnings with massage treatments that revive the mind, body, and soul. Cathy, Conchita’s owner and massage therapist, helps kick-start the journey with pampering and therapeutic massage packages. Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage align the body and mind with relaxing bodywork, whereas hot-stone treatments pander to tight and tense muscles. All treatments allow clients to embark on a quiet, blissful sojourn into relaxation. Cathy rounds out her massage menu with paraffin add-ons that further help the body attain a state of optimal well-being.
The bodywork experts at Anoka Massage & Pain Therapy believe in the healing power of relaxation and do their best to drive away unhealthy stress with massage therapy and acupuncture. Staffers are trained in a number of Eastern and Western modalities, including shiatsu, tui na, and myofascial release, focusing on pressure points or wadded-up connective tissue. During needling sessions, acupuncturists take aim at tension and a host of other ailments, such as allergies, depression, and ice-cream headaches.
Because spa clients have diverse expectations and desires, Bay Salon & Spa’s personnel begins each service with a professional consultation. This allows stylists to crown male and female clients with just the right choice of hair products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Eufora. To prevent torch-wielding villagers from attacking people who walk around too stiffly, the spa has also founded a massage club, which offers monthly 60- or 90-minute massages at a discounted rate.
At LifeSpa Salon—an oasis of calm inside a bustling workout center—an experienced stylist kicks off split-end snipping with a consultation to personalize trims. Patrons with overgrown mops may opt for the standalone haircut, which scrubs heads with a thorough shampoo before a meeting with a phalanx of humming scissors. In the men’s cut, a hot-towel treatment ensues, easing tension and opening pores with layers of heated terry cloth. Skilled tendril wranglers style women’s coiffures into chic masterpieces that grant the sleek confidence to attend a porpoise’s cocktail party.
Notes of relaxing music float through the air within the warm and welcoming private rooms of Massage Retreat & Spa, mingling sometimes with the rhythmic tapping of fingers across sore muscles or the silence of relaxation. While the spa’s massage therapists melt away aches and pains with smooth Swedish strokes, warm stones, or liquid-hot magma, their aesthetician counterparts indulge complexions with cleansing facials, waxing sessions, and treatments for eyebrows and eyelashes.
Though their menu of available sessions can seem overwhelming at first, the spa’s staff takes the time to tailor each treatment to clients’ individual needs; a health questionnaire and customer profile—required of first-time visitors—assists their efforts to pinpoint your unique ailments and concerns. An online Health Resource Center similarly typifies their uncommon dedication to individual care with its trove of helpful health and lifestyle tips and interactive chats with massage therapists and skincare specialists.
