The human body is capable of healing itself. Health practitioners at Bowenwork Energetics use natural treatments to enhance the healing process. Bowenwork, a little-known holistic therapy that uses small, gentle rolling movements in precise locations on muscles, tendons, and nerves, sends messages to the automatic nervous system to prompt automatic brain commands to each area stimulated, causing the affected area to ‘reset’ itself to its default state. Bowenwork is believed to be able to improve circulation, rebalance the body, and relieve acute pain. Treating everything from migraines and carpal tunnel syndrome to sciatica, digestive problems, and back pain, practitioner and reiki master Surrinder Arora studies the detailed medical history of each of her clients before healing the body with Bowenwork treatments.
As owner of Ruby Blu Salon, Michael Barone brings 13 years of experience to its styling operations, overseeing staff members who sculpt tresses amid exposed ceilings, track lighting, and portraits of models with stylish 'dos. The son of a professional hairstylist, Michael followed in his father's footsteps—a difficult task, as they were filled in with hair clippings. In addition to traditional haircut and color services, his team smooths frizzy tendrils with keratin smoothing treatments and nourishes coiffures with products by Moroccanoil and Kemon Nayo Organic Color.
With two locations and a slate of the latest hair, skin, and waxing treatments, Glory Salon is keeping things chic in both Farmington and Livonia. Stylists combine their skills with products from Purity Design and Aquage to create updos with staying power, correct botched at-home color jobs, and smooth frizz. When they're not styling or coloring hair, the staff is likely to be found removing it from the brows, bikini area, and anywhere in-between, or fawning over complexions with cleansing and rejuvenating facials. Options include everything from microdermabrasion and oxygen-rich treatments to basic European facials, which are just like American facials, but without the mask made from eagles' tears.
Teal accents pop against a coral and red color palette in Litito's Nail Salon, whose bold hues are inspired by the salon's colorful nail technicians and unique treatments. Sinking into the apricot cushions of a massaging pedicure chair, spa goers unwind while foot baths and massages melt away tension. Shellac and gel polishes cloak nail beds in a tough, chip-free gloss.
Bio Balance Therapy's staff works to shape silhouettes and smooth skin with massages, organic scrubs, and mineral-infused mud and seaweed wraps. During the cellulite massage, deft digits work to dislodge fatty deposits, clearing the way for overstayed toxins to escape the body inside “ahh” speech bubbles. An organic concoction of brown sugar, coconut milk, and orange rind, the body scrub gently exfoliates newly smoothed epidermises, and the parafango body wrap works to tighten skin with mineral-infused mud and firm pressure. During a libido-boost wrap, spa staff swathes bodies in organic seaweed mud, essential oils, and aphrodisiac herbs grown by French maids.
To complete the offerings on their extensive treatment list, the licensed stylists and aestheticians at Cher Salon stock their arsenal with products from established brands, including Redken, Alterna, PCA Skin, and CHI. At this all-inclusive Farmington beauty spot, clients stop in for a new haircut and color scheme before tinting their eyebrows to match. On the spa side, full-body massages, exfoliating scrubs, and waxing on more than 20 body areas take place in private treatment rooms.
KM Nails' certified techs dole out total nail makeovers with Shellac products, acrylic nails, and French-style polishes. Their list of services, which is longer than most grocery lists but shorter than the list of Oscars that John Williams won through betting on piano duels, proffers manicures and pedicures of all types and colors.
