This unassuming brick storefront gives way to a full-service salon where stylists excel at men’s, women’s, and children’s haircuts, as well as highlights, all-over color, and perms. Dry, dull locks are a thing of the past after a session with one of the talented, scissor-bearing staff members, who use deep conditioners to imbue locks with much-needed moisture or use ombre coloring techniques to create cascading curls in multiple hues. Beyond the blow-dryer, the staff also deals with unwanted strands by waxing away hair from the brows, sideburns, chins, and lips or even from the full face.
Pure Eco-Wellness Salon and Spa's team is so focused on natural treatments, they even strive to emulate natural light.This belief in nature's beautifying and healing capacity also suffuses their treatments. They brighten their chic haircuts, for example, with botanical, organic color, and their facials combat conditions from acne to aging with natural ingredients. Their vegan nail polish is infused with ecocert-certified bamboo for stronger nails, and contains no DBP, Toluene, Camphor, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde resin. Their commitment extends to their eco-friendly business practices, too, which range from recycling to cleaning with products that contain no chemicals nor monster-truck parts.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
All-natural shea butter slicks the palms of Butterfly Essential Wellness Spa's licensed massage therapists, coating bodies in a smooth surface for soothing massage modalities. Tension accumulated from constant stress or your significant other’s telltale heart melts away with the deep-tissue holistic massage's solid strokes, which relax tight muscles and boost immunity by liberating the lymphatic system of toxins. During the hot-stone mint massage, therapists alternate heated and chilled stones to foster better circulation and alleviate swollen sore spots, ideal outcomes for those suffering from arthritis or fibromyalgia.
With a workspace that spans 13,000 square feet and two stories, Lawrence SpaRex has plenty of room to pamper its clients privately and comfortably. Tucked away from all the nail treatments, haircuts, and massages, the facility’s dry sauna relaxes visitors with infrared panels that warm the body like natural sunlight without the potential damaging effects of UV rays. Layers of seaweed clay coat the walls not only in the sauna but also throughout the facility, providing a healthy alternative to paint and a more practical alternative to silly string.
After a car crash, during labor, and while reclined on a table. Janelle Chambers has given clients massages in all of these situations. She has been a certified massage therapist for 15 years, and each year her skill and ability to pummel rocks into dust have improved. Although Janelle has experience in many of the classic modalities—types that include Swedish, hot stone, and reflexology—she has recently been developing her own program in massage and energy work.
Patrons looking for a more intimate tanning experience can bypass crowded beaches or nosy neighbors and tan in one of Boardwalk Sunsations Tanning’s nine private rooms. Five UV-tanning booth and bed models gently darken pelts in 10- to 20-minute sessions. Alternatively, a certified master airbrush-tanning technician can cover skin with a Norvell Sunless Solutions formula for UV-free color. Newly tanned clients can complement their glowing skin with shimmery hair tinsel or vivid feather extensions.
