Main Street Health & Wellness has two licensed massage therapists on staff - Sarah Littleton, and Christina O'Shia. Together, they perform an array of massages, including deep-tissue, prenatal, and hot stone, which uses smooth stones to release tension and bring clients closer to their sediment-based ancestors. Littleton and O'Shia also perform facials, aromatherapy, and other spa services. On top of these relaxing services, the studio, which is located inside Life Thyme Botanicals, also hosts yoga instructor Ramie Haas to teach a class now and again.
When Jen Hibbard opened Sant? Massage in 2011, she saw it almost as a wellness studio?a place where clients could come to improve their overall health, not just as a place where massage was a luxury. The therapist, who often blogs about improving her own health, reduces chronic pain and tension with everything from deep-tissue and therapeutic massages to hot-stone and prenatal massages.
Jen learned her techniques at Heritage College, where she obtained an associate's degree in therapeutic massage and occupational studies. Jen emerged from the 1,200-hour state-accredited program with knowledge in a number of fields, including anatomy and physiology, Chinese medicine, and school-mascot massages.
Priding themselves on their dedication to continued education, the staff of Kailonie's Salon and Spa stays up-to-date on the latest trends in beauty services ranging from hairstyles to tanning and fitness. Out on the floor, hairstylists perform custom color treatments, and nail technicians render mint-scented manicures to ward off nail-biter breath. Meanwhile, tucked away in private rooms, aestheticians complete a host of facials that clarify and hydrate skin, or use wax to oust unwanted hairs. Tthe fitness center located inside the salon is free to cancer survivors.
Inside BodyNSpa, wrought-iron shelves proffer jewelry, body butters, and bath oils amid peach walls and an Old-World wall clock. Private, clutter-free massage rooms house therapists who craft custom massage and spa services beneath dim lighting, with the aid of soft microfiber blankets and several cartoon-animal companions. When they aren't kneading sinews with Swedish, hot-stone, and therapeutic techniques, they’re defining contours with body wraps and daubing faces with soothing masks. They also perform airbrush tanning to give pallid epidermises a bronze glow.
