At Flawless Designs, dark wood ceilings and minimalist decor keep the focus down where it belongs: at mirror level. That's where clients sit back and enjoy haircuts, styles, and color treatments performed by expert staff. Like the ideal job candidate fresh out of college, the staff has more than 25 years of experience, including some in New York City. Hair extensions, waxing, and updos round out their list of beauty-boosting services.
When Sharon Landis is not busy dispensing deep-tissue, Swedish, and therapeutic massages at her office, she is out delivering Massage-O-Grams. Once a customer purchases a Massage-O-Gram, she travels to the recipient, reads a telegram penned by the gifter, and administers a 25-minute chair massage, kneading the shoulders, arms, back, and wings. The licensed massage therapist keeps hours until 8 p.m. every day but Sunday to accommodate clients' busy schedules.
At LaRae's Hair Salon, the eponymous proprietor Tanya LaRae leads a strike force of six stylists, all of whom possess at least 15 years of experience in styling the hairdos of men, women, and children. The team performs comprehensive dye jobs and chemical treatments powered by high-end products from such brands as Matrix and Sebastian. To accommodate those who prefer to fly by the seat of their pants or sole of their shoes, the salon accepts walk-ins Monday–Saturday.
Once the province of only luxury spas and often dismissed as simply an indulgence, massage has since joined the ranks of legitimate, proven pain-management techniques—and Dee Wartenberg thinks that it’s about time. This is because as a licensed massage therapist, she has seen the benefits that medical massage can have on those suffering from pain and injury firsthand. Less a luxury and more an integral means of coping with pain, medical massage entails ultraspecific, results-oriented attention to injured areas of the body, as well as the supporting and opposing tissues. This focused system of bodywork, often accompanied by a physician’s prescription and a Get Well balloon, has been proven to relieve any number of symptoms, from back pain to decreased joint flexibility to stress.
Dee Wartenberg is a steadfast believer in the healing powers of medical massage, and she utilizes her skills and passion for healing during each session. She offers medical, sports, and trigger-point massage to alleviate clients’ suffering, but she doesn’t stop there. As a reiki master, Dee is also qualified to perform reiki treatments, and for those who are simply looking for a blissful, spa-like escape from general stress and tension, she happily doles out uplifting Swedish massages.
Free-parking is available to all customers of Medical Therapeutic Massage.
Founded by a registered nurse concerned about the chemicals found in conventional spa products, Eden Organics' award-winning spa offers services that bathe patrons in an expansive selection of organic, vegan, and gluten-free products. The oxygen facial revives skin by spraying complexions with hyperbaric oxygen, and the flower power peel which targets hyperpigmentation, age spots, and acne scarring. During the back facial, an aesthetician smoothens the dorsal plains with steam and exfoliation before extracting deposits of sebum and ingrown marionette strings. Therapeutic massages set clients atop thickly blanketed beds. All the while, dexterous hands glide over muscles with organic mineral oils, delivering fluid strokes to extract tension and melt muscles into sublime submission. High-quality waxes, exfoliating lip treatments, and fragrant scalp massages also help guests to internalize the spa's soothing atmosphere and its abundant flowers blushing over hardwood floors.
