The nationally-certified massage therapists at Serenity Wholistic Wellness have trained under chiropractors and nutritionists, but they also go the extra mile for client health by maintaining CPR/AED Heartsaver certifications. Inside the wellness center, they upgrade traditional massage modalities with hot and cold stones, stretching, cupping, aromatherapy, and rain-drop therapy, which soothes bodies better than laying outside during a thunderstorm. They also pamper feet with rose-petal foot soaks and warm brown-sugar foot scrubs.
For those who wish to look as good as they feel after a treatment, Serenity Wholistic Wellness hosts a boutique stocked with jewelry, custom oils and lotions, purses, and wallets.
Billowing drapes, exposed brick walls, and playful zebra-print furniture fill Swan Skin and Nail Spa, where owner Swangela Barlow brings her clientele up to speed on the latest developments in mani-pedis, facials, eyelashes, and waxing services. Barlow's diverse nail services—a specialty—include children's manicures, long-lasting shellac-gel treatments, and Minx manicures, a wholly customizable favorite of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
Operating inside the Eastbrook Executive Center, the licensed massage therapists at Fresh Lemongrass Massage pamper clients with an array of therapeutic treatments, whether to help alleviate pain or simply unwind after a taxing day. Swedish massages lull guests into tranquility, sports massages help reduce the physical stresses athletes incur in games, and reflexology treatments melt anxiety with a foot soak and body scrub.
Most spas will tell you what to put on your skin, but few will tell you what to put in your body. But Suite 20 Day Spa is different—the staff includes not only massage therapists and aestheticians, but a licensed dietitian. The hair services are extensive as well: stylists wrap tresses in rollers and coat unruly strands with relaxers, using products from Straight Request, Design Essentials, and CB Smooth. And unlike at voting and gambling stations, kids don’t just have to sit and watch, since they too can hop into the styling chair for cuts, curling, and flat-wrapping.
