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.
HealthQuest's nonsurgical treatments have raised many eyebrows in the sports world, especially around the locker rooms at Ford Field. The center often finds itself the temporary home to some of Detroit's gridiron greats, who take advantage of the staff's non-invasive chiropractic treatments—which combine the power of pulsed laser light and traditional chiropractic care to alleviate knots and aches—to stay in Sunday shape. Non-football clients also find relief, consulting with HealthQuest's doctors on treatments to increase blood flow, decrease inflammation, and promote soft tissue healing.
There's a secret hidden in the name of Bellis Therapeutic Spa: "Bellis" is actually an acronym that describes the staff's values. The team maintains a diverse menu of massages, peels and facials, and body scrubs and wraps. But every single treatment, without exception, is guided by the core priorities stashed in the Bellis name. "B" refers to a Belief in natural products and ingredients. Aestheticians scrub bodies with white tea and ginger, milk with honey and ginger, and herbed lavender salt. Holistic treatments such as ear candling celebrate natural methods, and oatmeal facial masks help nourish, hydrate, soothe, fuel, and disguise bank-robbing clients all at once. "E" stands for Empowering, the first "L" is for Listen, and the second "L" is for Learning. These three values work in tandem, as staffers pay close attention to clients' goals and concerns, then empower them with personalized skincare education clients can take home. "I" is for Integrity, meaning that the team respects guests' privacy and needs, while the last "S," standing for Services, refers to the leisurely pace at which clients are encouraged to enjoy each treatment.
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. Bowenwork Energetics also offers a gentle yogic exercise program as well as breathing exercises called pranayama to help clients improve their overall well-being.
Ayurveda, a system of medicine that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, believes that individuals are unique and need to have health treatments tailored specifically to them. Beayurvedic's practitioner, Beena, relies on mind-body assessments—a combination of health-history questions and pulse readings—to determine which treatments are needed. Once clients know their dosha, or constitution type, they can learn which foods will best fuel their bodies, which herbal supplements to take, and which stress-management techniques are best for them. They can also learn how to care for their skin and rid their bodies of toxins via detoxification therapy on subsequent visits.
