NatUreal health & wellness owner and certified doctor of naturopathy Michelle Butler inspires clients to take better care for their bodies and minds through her nutritional wisdom and holistic healing practices. Tranquil meditation sessions and therapeutic massage on quilt-lined tables help bring balance to the body without need for unnecessary medicine, invasive procedures, or exhausting Lady Justice poses. Meanwhile, Michelle calls on her certification in nutritional counseling to empower clients with supremacy over their health through nourishing diets and emotional healing that help the body to naturally mend itself.
Hair is the priority at Blown Salon. In fact, it's all they do. By not stacking his service menu with indulgent extras such as mani-pedis or facials, owner and head stylist Mason Shupe guarantees that the attention of his staff won't be needlessly diverted away from strands waiting to be shaded and sculpted into master works of hair art. Previously an education artist for Sebastian International, Shupe has made it his mission to mentor up-and-coming stylists and has arranged his team––who together comprise more than 100 years of experience––into a tier system that sees junior stylists learning from master hair artists, and master hair artists learning to hone their skills while standing atop a human pyramid. Beyond cuts, Shupe's salon offers the latest keratin-based straightening treatments and helps heads to adopt a new hue with low-ammonia hair color by Italian-based Screen.
Since 1973, each of Sport&Health's clubs has aimed for full fitness coverage with programs for every taste and family member. Guests can spark positive lifestyle changes with workouts and wellness services, or engage in a variety of sports. Each facility houses different athletic amenities for games and laps, from pristine swimming pools to squash and racquetball courts. The camaraderie of group classes such as Zumba and Les Mills BodyPump barbell routines complement scores of club equipment meant for exercising solo—or with the guidance of a certified personal trainer. The clubs also emphasize kid-friendly activities with arts and crafts, Kidz Klub childcare, and youth certification courses that teach teens the ins and outs of training. Depending on the location, spa treatments can knead tension from muscles and paint one's favorite kettlebell with a layer of Shellac.
Mon Sanctuaire’s all white décor and relaxing spa treatments restore a sense of serenity to the overworked and stressed.
In the treatment rooms, white walls and white curtains surround patrons lying on soft white sheets, waiting for a massage session to release tension resulting from typing at a desk all day and hauling a mattress into the treehouse every night. Guests might also relax here while an aesthetician performs a facial using Institute Esthederm products to restore balance, tighten skin, or fade wrinkles. Body-care sessions such as reflexology or mud wraps with scalp massages further calm the senses.
Massages at Jetaun's Massage Therapy are custom tailored to meet the needs of any sore back or tense shoulder. The licensed practitioners run down a playbook full of deep-tissue, sports, and hot-stone massage techniques that they blend and manipulate to address their clients' specific injuries and areas of discomfort. Mental bothers, such as office deadlines and the name of the kid in E.T., can also be dulled to invisibility with relaxing Swedish massages and aromatherapy treatments. After clients depart their tabletop havens, they can purchase candles, oils, and massage music that will turn any bedroom or crowded elevator into an oasis of tranquility.
Master aesthetician Maria Conde rarely encounters a pair of legs that she can't make as smooth as silk, or a pair of eyebrows that she can't shape into elegant arches. The hair-removal expert specializes in swift waxing and sugaring treatments for women as well as for men. But that's not all she offers at Maria Body Image Studio. Conde also cleanses pores with exfoliating facials and promotes detoxification with mineral body wraps. Her eyelash extensions add length and volume for weeks on end, staying in place until they fall out naturally or are plucked for an emergency wish.
Sue, the eponymous owner of Sunrise Hair Studio & Sue's Skin Care Center, brings 15 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair. In the salon, stylists whip up custom cuts and colors and employ the follicle-smoothing powers of Global Keratin’s formaldehyde-free hair-straightening treatment. Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
