Located in a historic building in Hingham Square, Presence Wellness has turned what was (possibly) a post office in the 1800s into a haven of well being and serenity. Unlike a visit to a modern-day post office, time at Presence Wellness is spent releasing stress, rather than trapping it in express-mail packages. The massage therapy menu includes an array of techniques, including deep-tissue, Swedish, Thai, and trigger-point massage, and the therapists customize each session to their client's unique needs. Other stress-relieving services include energetic bodywork sessions, as well as private instruction in yoga or meditation.
The aestheticians at Younger You, Inc use both modern and traditional beauty treatments to rejuvenate the skin. Their high-tech offerings include microcurrent treatments utilizing the Beautiful Image device, which wards off wrinkles and tightens tushes without necessitating surgery or DIY treatments with an electric eel. Classic facials cleanse and hydrate the skin, while waxing services leave nearly any area of the anatomy silky smooth.
Crystal Nails & Spa's seasoned nail technicians hone and polish digits with OPI, Essie, CND, and Gelish products during specialty manicure treatments. Both treatments commence with filing, buffing, and cuticle grooming, and a lotion-augmented massage soothes extremities to leave skin silky enough to put white gloves out of business. While lounging in a massaging pedicure chair, clients soak feet in a warm bath, allowing practitioners to exfoliate away calluses and dry skin with a sea-salt scrub. The foot prettifier then applies nail strengthener before coating digits in a bright layer of polish. Shellac upgrades fuse a gel-based polish to nails under the beams of a UV lamp, which creates two weeks of stylish, brightly hued handscapes without inducing worries of polish chipping or running away with dashing young crayons.
The décor of Knockouts mimics that of a boxing ring, but—unlike the real thing—patrons look better when they leave. After a consultation with one of the scissor-handed stylists, your Heavyweight haircut will kick off with a relaxing shampoo. As a stylist snips, shaves, and shears, direct your attention toward the many flat-screen TVs showing all the day's top sports and a few of its bottom ones, such as mixed martial horseshoes and the World's Slowest Man tournament. After the follicular wreckage is cleared with a second round of shampoo and a rinse, your stylist will treat you to a neck-tingling scalp massage before arranging head-strands to your specifications and shellacking them in place.
