Jeni gave up a career in business to pursue her passion for helping people overcome pain and emotional stress. She attained her massage therapist’s license and set up shop at Massage Therapy by Jeni, where she specializes in numerous modalities. Alongside standards such as Swedish, deep tissue, and pregnancy, Jeni offers Deluxe Detox Relaxation massages that use essential oils, foot wraps, and reflexology to keep the mind from spinning in circles chasing its own brain stem. For those experiencing pain, she uses hot and cold therapies—combined with therapeutic massage—to bring relief to the affected areas.
Away from the hustle and bustle of muscle chiseling, staffers including nail technicians, massage therapists, and a licensed aesthetician and manicurist can be found flitting about Studio Fit Day Spa as they gussy up weary patrons via lavish services. They restore dull complexions to their former radiance with a variety of facials, such as an acne-clearing facial or an age-erasing facial. Their nail treatments infuse digits with a dose of polished glamour.
For those looking for a spa treatment to boost their weight-loss results further, Studio Fit offers the Ultimate Body Applicator, a cloth wrap that encourages the tightening of epidermal exteriors and the reduction of cellulite when wrapped around the abdomen, back, legs, arms, or second head. A plant-based mixture permeates the cloth wrap, detoxifying skin with extracts of horse chestnut and green tea and oils of jojoba seed and rosemary leaf.
Sunny Daze Tanning and Salon's lineup of spray-tan technology and UV-tanning equipment—including beds, standup booths, and leg tanners—keeps skin beaming with a summery, straight-off-the-beach appearance. With tanning packages available by the session, month, or year, the facility helps clients maintain bronzed tones no matter the season. To sustain the health of epidermal surfaces, customers can stop spoon-feeding pureed carrots to each pore and instead load up on an arsenal of brand-name lotions, tonics, and bronzers available for purchase. Tanning aside, the salon's aestheticians sap stress during manicures, facials, and a variety of massages, including soft-tissue treatments and magnet therapy.
Before he opened his own practice, massage therapist Jack Dillender made sure he knew exactly what he was doing. Through collaborations with chiropractors and medical doctors and stints at various day spas, he honed techniques that work to unclog systemic blockages, reduce stress, and increase the body?s ability to heal itself. At The Way of Massage, Jack puts these techniques into practice during treatments that he tailors to his clients? unique maladies, from chronic aches to unoiled tin hinges. His couples massages incorporate hot stones, footbaths, and neck massages to bring twosomes closer together without forcing them to share a single table.
As the weather outside grows colder, Bella D’ora Spa rolls out the cookie dough—or, at least, the smell of baking cookies. The seasonal sugar-cookie massage incorporates a brown-sugar hand-and-foot scrub into a sweet-smelling massage. The staff also provide an equal level of pampering year-round through warm-stone massages, organic facials, and body wraps that work to rid skin of toxins that may have been absorbed during baths in the chemical vats at a local soft-drink factory. Clients can bundle services for spa parties or bridal parties, which come with optional hors d’oeuvres or lunch plates that easily sate high-noon cravings.
Though Shadonica Williams has been immersed in the beauty industry as a cosmetologist and then a nail technician since 1998, it's only recently that she decided to follow her other passion: massage. At Royal Treatment, she specializes in kneading knots out of her clients' muscles and fascia with Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release techniques. She sometimes combines these modalities with techniques such as trigger-point therapy and stretching for integrative massage therapy. While she applies her slow, precision strokes, Williams also educates clients on their bodies' inner workings.
