The beauty professionals at EuroTouch Salon & Spa root their work in the European philosophy, which they define as "the philosophy of healing, clarifying and rejuvenating the mind, body, and spirit." As hair stylists, nail technicians, massage therapists, and skincare experts perform treatments that fulfill these tenets, the surrounding decor evokes Old-World sensibilities—ornate golden-framed mirrors, Romanesque pillars, and Renaissance-like paintings create a tranquil, baroque ambiance. The reception area features a full-size water fountain that could easily grace an Italian piazza or Ponce de León's master bathroom. In this setting, clients undergo curative treatments with M.D. Forté skincare products or submit to personally tailored services or packages.
Maroon pedicure chairs line the walls at Li-En Nail Salon 1, where feet soak in warm whirlpool tubs before an exfoliating sea scrub and mask treatment. During manicures, a wall-mounted TV entertains patrons as nail technicians top fingertips with bright shades of OPI and China Glaze polish.
Tightness from days spent at the desk. Aches from a weekend of flag football. Back spasms from marathon games of Twister. With agile fingers trained in therapeutic muscle manipulation, BodyWorks Massage Therapy's licensed therapists alleviate all manner of bodily pains with combinations of eight massage modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, and trigger point. Available at two locations––one within the Franklin Athletic Club, and the other at the Murfreesboro Athletic Club, opening October 1, 2013––the private treatment rooms submerge clients' senses in stress-slaking stimulation: soothing scents of aromatherapy, the relaxing touch of a heated bed, and recordings of an otter gargling with fresh ocean water.
Opulent, dangling chandeliers and lights enliven the rich mocha-hued walls and matching hardwood floors at A Moment's Peace Salon & Day Spa, where stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists skillfully gussy up hair, skin, and nails. Staffers wield Oribe hair products during haircuts and coloring, and they professionally enhance facial features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup. An array of massage modalities cultivates relaxed musculature and complements a slate of soothing services, including full-body waxing, VersaSpa sunless tanning, and cleansing facials. The salon also boasts an intimate couples suite, where twosomes can get massages beneath twinkling lights embedded in the ceiling or rehydrate sundried tomatoes in the room's private steam shower.
When it comes to her clientele, licensed massage therapist Lytrice has seen it all—from stay-at-home parents stressed by daily life to elderly patrons wearied by age. Lytrice makes it her mission to restore calm and vigor to her charges with various massage techniques, particularly her specialties: deep tissue, Swedish, and hot stone. She unburdens her clients of their worldly worries and nephews clinging to their backs in a space embellished with a blend of tranquil earth tones and energizing yellows and oranges.
Aromatic scents and soft music greet patrons who pass through The Woodhouse Day Spa?s heavy mahogany doors. Once eyes adjust to the dim lighting of twinkling chandeliers, spa concierges invite patrons to shirk street clothes and the superhero costumes beneath them to don a fluffy robe. Guests can sip a cup of tea or glass of wine in the Quiet Room while awaiting treatment. Aestheticians and massage therapists pamper bodies with organic Naturopathica products within private, candlelit treatment rooms.
