Belle Sante Spa’s team of massage therapist and aestheticians helps clients feel confident and relaxed with an array of spa services. For instance, the Neroli body-polish treatment uses products made from the orange tree’s white blossoms to gently exfoliate, massage, and hydrate skin. Likewise, facial treatments range from fast mini-facials to moon-stone facials that combine cold stones with hot steam to rejuvenate skin and reduce sinus pressure. Massage therapists specialize in a variety of modalities so customers looking to relax after attempting to shoot some hoops with a bowling ball can find the perfect treatment to meet their needs.
Dena Marie’s Salon & Spa’s hairstylists specialize in formal updos. Augmented by Lox extensions—crafted from 100% human hair—or held in place by hair balms from Bed Head and Matrix, the formal looks prepare patrons for glitzy events from proms to the salon’s second specialty—weddings.
Their team, which also consists of manicurists, regularly attends continuing-education courses to keep their services up-to-date with the latest beauty trends. Fresh out of the workshops, they turn their shears and dyes toward shaping and coloring manes, and drape frazzled locks with shine during keratin smoothing treatments. They also provide spa treatments that include waxing and paraffin dips that remove dry skin from bodies more effectively than attempting to drive them out by playing annoying music over loudspeakers throughout the night.
The techs at She's Nailin It take pride in delivering a healthy mani-pedi experience that's free from germs and strong smells. That's why they practice hospital-grade sterilization techniques on their equipment, and why the salon uses a ventilation system that propels harsh odors outdoors, where pigs live. Once conditions are in order they begin their services, trimming and shaping nails before applying name-brand polishes from OPI, Essie, and more.
Whether you need regular therapy for pain or just a one-hour vacation during the day, Lori Bazzetta at Massage for your Health has a variety of techniques to help relax the muscles and soothe the nervous system. Depending on your needs, she can draw from modalities such as deep tissue, myofascial, trigger point, or acupressure for the massage. There’s also the sports massage, which targets specific muscle groups, such as the calves for a runner or the shoulders for a baseball player.
When she was still learning the nuances of her craft in massage school, Rhonda Lakip-Ochoa wasted no time sharing her newfound powers with those who needed them most. After classes ended, she’d practice what she’d learned that day on her mother, who had cancer, and the seniors under her charge during a day job as a caregiver. Now, as the principle practitioner at A Healing Touch Massage Therapy/Spa LLC, Rhonda draws upon these formative experiences to soothe clients from all walks of life. During in-office sessions, she unknots kinked muscles with bodywork drawn from massage traditions including deep tissue and hot stone. Rhonda and her team of certified massage therapists also schedule in-home appointments, arriving at area doorsteps bearing massage tables, lotions, and calming music.
Although she’s now a full-fledged massage therapist, Rhonda never forgot her commitment to bringing peace to the infirm. Today, she still caters to clients with Alzheimer's and dementia, easing their ills with strokes that are lighter, slower than usual. She also massages individuals undergoing cancer treatments for free at her Creative Design/Creative Care facility or her A Healing Garden location.
