Although Mode Salon East lines its shelves with organic Davines products and Mode Salon West spotlights botanically derived products by Aveda, the two sister locations share a dedication for creating inspired hairstyles. Their teams include stylists who have trained domestically and internationally to learn new techniques from fashion icons, and the salons host monthly workshops with industry leaders to keep skills current. Armed with premium haircare products and this extensive professional development, Mode Salon’s stylists add depth to new cuts with regular highlights, painted-on passages from War and Peace, or more natural balayage and ombre coloring. An array of skincare, waxing, and mani-pedi treatments round out the salons’ service menus.
Three years ago, Melissa Doyle knew she would be adding a three-letter word to the end of her name. At the time, the academia-bound student was intent on garnering the distinction of PhD. In the middle of one her exams in July 2010, however, she had an epiphany—those weren't the three letters she wanted. Realizing that her passion is helping people achieve optimal health, she decided to instead study yoga and adopt three new letters to her name: LMT, for licensed massage therapist. In addition to teaching three yoga classes per week and therapeutically tearing out the pages of her old course books, she is available throughout the week for custom massages and private yoga instruction.

Licensed massage therapist Angel Seals understands that relaxation isn?t one size fits all. To help clients achieve the physical and emotional benefits of massage, she customizes head-to-toe treatments for each individual who reclines on her table. Angel listens carefully to their issues while fine-tuning sessions, addressing concerns such as muscle and joint pain, stress, or headaches. Then she devotes the full amount of time to the massage itself, never starting the clock before clients have removed their ceremonial sashes, undressed to their comfort level, and settled onto the padded massage table. Guests stay draped and cozy in the heated room while muscles are soothed with kneads and ears are treated to soft music.
Licensed massage therapist Marissa McCallin employs her skilled, nimble touch and holistic understanding of the body to imbue clients with total relaxation from head to toe. A graduate of the Florida School of Massage, Marissa penetrates beyond the skin’s surface with strokes that knead away anxieties and taps that convey verses of Italian poetry to muscles into Morse code. Massage treatments help to improve circulation and lower blood pressure, and Marissa’s traditional Japanese Reiki sessions holistically care for the body and mind with gentle, non-invasive techniques. Flanked by a lily pond and white picket fence, the quaint green cottage that houses the Center for Balance radiates with a sense of warmth and calm. Inside the office, crisp white walls give way to framed scenes of sunsets and sleek wooden floors host a cushy brown couch for pre-appointment relaxation.
