Certified nail technician Kathy Cyrus has spent more than a decade pampering clients at spas and salons across Jacksonville. When her clients began asking if she could make house calls, Kathy jumped at the chance to combine a passion for entertaining with her nailcare expertise. Today, Kathy pampers her clients from the comfort of their own homes or fortresses of solitude, administering manicures, pedicures, and foot scrubs. She uses top-tier products such as OPI and CND polishes and stays abreast of the latest nail fashion trends such as magnetic polish, crackle polish, and playful decals.
Cynthia, the licensed massage therapist behind Cyn's RelaxZen Massage Boutique, helps her guests leave the sterile, fluorescent-light-tinged world of the office behind. She works in a massage room adorned with leopard-print drapes and verdant plants. These decorations surround a massage table dressed in zebra-print sheets and a furry blanket, where she mends ailing muscles with her own custom blend of massage techniques. Cynthia also draws on an array of modalities, including Swedish, deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and trigger-point massage. She soothes tired hands and feet with acupressure and reflexology; cossets clients at all stages of life with infant, prenatal, and geriatric massage; and adds complimentary aromatherapy to all sessions lasting an hour or more.
When she isn't kneading knots out, Cynthia uses her skills to bring recuperation to parties and events. She also helps clients detox and relax in her spa room, which features an infrared sauna, a shower, and the most zen thing there is: an entire village of perfectly potty-trained newborn puppies.
