Seasoned sinew kneader Shelly Connors of Sweet Serenity Massage deploys an arsenal of Swedish massage techniques, tailoring treatment to meet the specific needs of her clients. A thorough, stress-melting manipulation of the corpus commences in 60- or 90-minute Swedish massages, during which Connors uses Scandinavian methods—such as long, fluid strokes and a heavy reliance on umlauts—to relieve aches and induce relaxation. Aromatic oils curtail friction while hydrating the skin and further soothing the senses with their calming scents. Bodies receive these attentions in a tranquil space accented by diaphanous curtains, Ionic columns, and a soothing soundtrack of klezmer punk hits.
Most people can't get a haircut in the comfort of their own home, but getting a haircut at Hairhouse Studio may be the next best thing. Each station has its own LED TV, so customers can sit back and relax during their service while catching up on their favorite programs and sipping a hot beverage from the salon's complimentary coffee station. Catering to both men and women, the salon's stylists can tackle everything from haircuts and color services to up-dos and facial waxing. And, the lobby television can be tuned to cartoons so parents can enjoy some much needed pampering without worrying about booking a babysitter.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.

The staff at Sculpt U slenderizes physiques and lifts faces with noninvasive microcurrent treatments. Electrical pulses tighten the skin like a hair dryer tightens cellophane pants, lifting droopy areas without the need for plastic surgery or injections. The clinic's SX-101 microcurrent machine is designed to tone bellies, buttocks, and thighs, and the SX-3500 rejuvenates jowls, crow's feet, and turkey necks.
