The Lash Lady carves out a niche in Euphoria Color & Hair Salon’s trendy atmosphere to relax and beautify her clients with skincare services and bodywork treatments. Professional-grade Control Corrective products nourish epidermises during facials tailored to cleanse deeply or reset wrinkle-forming alarm clocks. The Lash Lady hones a delicate touch to perform several types of chemical peels and a range of bodywork services ranging from body wraps and massage to full body waxing. Colorful artwork, exposed brick walls, and rich wooden floors all contribute to Euphoria's energetic atmosphere. Instead of tapping the rest of the day's schedule in Morse code, toes bob to the beat of eclectic music as client's savor their treatments and complimentary refreshments.
Selena Tew, a licensed massage therapist well versed in multiple kneading modalities, sweeps away tension with a custom blend of massage techniques. Tew guides clients from a plush couch to a private room lined with calming, neutral colors, where she takes inventory of muscle knots, sore joints, and boomerangs lodged between shoulder blades. Deep-tissue massages pair firm pressure and cross-fiber friction with trigger-point therapy to ease pain, increase range of motion, and quiet squeaky joints. The smooth, gliding strokes of Swedish massage combine with acupressure therapy to improve the circulation of blood and dollar coins throughout the body. Both types of massage may incorporate lotion or grape-seed oil, which soften the skin and help Tew’s hands to glide across sore sinews.
Kelly McLaurin, the licensed nail technician at Shear Illusions by Amber Goins, primps toes and pampers feet with 90-minute spa pedicures in the comforts of a tranquil, homey studio. During the relaxing foot treatment, McLaurin soaks and files nails, curbs cuticles, and smoothes away stowaway candy corns to eliminate dull, dry skin. A massage relieves tension residing in the lower legs and feet before the nails are buffed or polished with a choice of polish. The pedicure station sits behind drawn curtains that double as an optional invisibility cloak to maintain privacy throughout the treatment.
While images of whirring laser beams still conjure thoughts of technophilic futures, the technology is already hard at work at Fayetteville Laser. There, technicians wield noninvasive medical lasers that renovate bods with treatments ranging from body contouring to cellulite reduction. Their Contoura super-pulsed laser works to blast inches off of abdomens, thighs, and buttocks, and their Irradia laser reduces pain and inflammation associated with chronic illness or thinking too hard about how gravity works.
At G'nique's Spa Services, owner, aesthetician, and massage therapist Genique Freeman guides her team with the conviction that total wellness is achieved when each patient feels beautiful, relaxed, and cared for. Freeman's staff makes a point of opening communication lines with each client, welcoming both English and Spanish speakers and discovering their patients' treatment preferences and favorite Kevin Bacon films via a simple online health-history form. Organic and wild-harvested ingredients from product lines such as De La Terre ease health concerns, and skin-purifying treatments are frequently paired with massages to heighten the therapeutic effects of both. Calm lighting and soft music welcome clients to leave their workplace stresses at the door, and a no-walk-in policy ensures patient comfort by safeguarding against overcrowding or a sudden influx of encyclopedia salesmen. Also supporting the spa's philosophy that physical and psychological health go hand in hand, G'nique's encourages veterans and their families to take respite in pampering by offering military discounts on specialty services, such as massages and facials.
