Scents of Serenity owner Melanie Mueller believes that putting your best face forward means using organic and natural skincare products. That's why her team of aestheticians employs the Éminence Organic Skin Care line, whose concoctions are free of artificial colors, synthetic perfumes, and harsh chemicals, such as parabens and Twinkie filling. Guests can wander to the spa's cozy lobby to purchase many of these elixirs, strolling across hardwood floors to a centerpiece shelf stocked with bottles, creams, and the emerald leaves of aloe plants.
Mueller's team is an educated bunch; all aestheticians are licensed by the Virginia Board of Cosmetology, and all massage therapists are certified through the Virginia Board of Nursing, as well as the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. They dole out a variety of kneading techniques—from aromatherapy to hot stone—in treatment rooms canopied by cream-colored drapes and strings of luminescent orbs that melt into butter every time a patron says "ahhh."
The 10 tanning beds at The Perfect Tanning Salon bronze bodies with four levels of UV rays seven days a week. Before customers slip into their illumination chambers, they can discover new ways to protect their eyes and skin by perusing the tanning lotions and goggles that line the salon's mint-green walls. For a sun-kissed glow without the heat, staffers can airbrush epidermises by hand, which helps achieve a more subtle tan than riding through the painting section of a Mr. Potato Head assembly line.
Griffith Family Chiropractic's certified massage therapist designs a customized lineup of moves to melt away aches and tension. A one-hour session rewards your head's hard-working stilts with the massage modality of your choice, including Swedish relaxation, deep tissue, and therapeutic styles. Choose Swedish massage to knead subterranean stress and burrowing dust bunnies to the skin's surface so your therapist can briskly sweep them away. Those with chronic tension or pain can target troublesome areas in the crosshairs of the therapeutic option. Sports-worn sterns benefit from deep tissue attention, which offers a better way to hasten muscle recovery than lying on a bed of steaks or aggressively heckling debilitated quadriceps.
The licensed and certified massage therapists at ShaE Massage works to relax tight muscles and ease tension during each full-body massage session. Whether it’s a deep-tissue massage, which targets deeply held stress with deep, intensive strokes and kneading, or a soothing Swedish massage, which combines oils with lighter strokes to improve circulation, a bodywork session at the calming ShaE Massage studio can help clients feel rejuvenated.
