At Amazing Touch, licensed massage therapist Kelly Zahniser strives to avail clients of the many physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy. In service of this goal, she soothes muscles with modalities ranging from pregnancy massage to reflexology and eases tension with mineral-rich salt stones found in the Himalayas atop a yeti's pile of bills. Zahniser complements her relaxing massages with detoxifying body wraps and fragrant essential oils. She also travels to clients' homes to spritz bodies with spray-tanning solutions or stage spa parties that furnish on-the-spot pampering for pre-wedding festivities or girls' nights out.
Lindsay Le puts training at Seattle's Permanent Cosmetics School, over 10 years of permanent makeup experience, and a steady hand to use to beautify faces and enhance features. At Permanent Make-Up & Nail Land, which she has owned for over 14 years, she uses brand-new supplies to maintain sanitation during each permanent-makeup application, and topical anesthetics numb flesh before Le deposits pigments into the skin. The process can even out discolored complexions, enhance eyes and eyebrows, or increase the thickness of lips to leave them beautiful.
It's not hard to see why Vata Salon & Spa has been voted Clark County's best hair salon multiple times by readers of The Columbian. After all, Vata has partnered with Aveda to deliver environmentally friendly wellness to clients via a dizzying variety of spa treatments. When they aren't snipping away at split ends, stylists strengthen and soften hair with a system based on natural and organic ingredients. Not to be outdone, the salon's nail technicians perform relaxing pedicures while their clients recline in zero-gravity massage chairs. In private skincare suites, walls of slate and stone create a sense of being immersed in nature. It's the perfect environment for a natural facial or a microdermabrasion treatment, which sloughs away dead skin cells and Richard Nixon masks.
At Serenity Wellness and Nails, the staff works under the philosophy that the state of one's exterior and interior are closely intertwined. So, they offer multiple types of manicures and pedicures to help their client's feel confident about their appearance, which, in turn, often has a positive effect on their general wellbeing. The staff is also very health conscious, believing that good health translates into a glowing exterior. Therefore, they specialize in health-related treatments such as diabetic foot care, use disposable liners in their pedicure tubs, and greet each customer with a preventative "gesundheit!"
Nails grow at a rate of about one centimeter every hundred days, which means they require regular maintenance aside from an understanding of the metric system. Out of Textures salon, highly trained nail technician Donna Ackels expertly cares for out-of-control claws with deft nail-shaping techniques and colorful embellishments. While relaxed in her comfortable salon chair, clients can choose from an array of prismatic polishes to give their fingernails or toenails a fresh look. Those looking to revamp their appearance further can also linger in the shop for a hair treatment such as a cut, straightening, or coloring.
