Specializing in sports massage, therapist Christopher Benoit applies his athleticism and formal training to a variety of relaxation modalities. A long-distance cyclist himself, Benoit helps to keep athletes limber during muscle-stiffening cold seasons with foam-fingered kneads designed to facilitate healing, improve athletic performance, and increase range of motion. Benoit approaches massage therapy from a perspective of wellness, helping to circulate endorphins, nutrients, and oxygen throughout the body as he bolsters the immune system. Dim lighting gently illuminates light-green walls as clients lie on heated towels and surrender to soothing strokes augmented by hypoallergenic massage gels.

For clients, Nicole's workstation at Genesis Salon is indeed where transformations begin. She starts by breathing life into parched strands with deep-conditioning treatments. Then, she snips, colors, and sculpts locks into stylish looks. She can primp clients for special occasions with elegant updos or create fresh everyday looks, such as sleek bobs and face-framing highlights or lowlights. In addition to hair services, the staff at Genesis Salon also help slim physiques with body wraps, and keep complexions bright with facials and fuzz-free with waxing.
