Karen Stoehr established 9th Street Wellness Center after a bout with cancer turned her attention to the healing arts. With the help of her staff, Karen guides clients toward whole-body health using services including massage, reiki, reflexology, and many other alternative energy healing techniques. The center regularly hosts seminars by experts in yoga, EFT, reconnective healing, healthy cooking, and nutrition. They provide clients with access to self-help books and discussion groups, equipping individuals with the ability to self-heal.
With 12 years of experience in martial arts, Daniel Strelka knows his way around a confrontation. Believing that bodies fight themselves when they are stressed, Daniel employs different massage styles to ease stress and help the body heal itself, not unlike cartoon hero Wolverine and real hero Four-Armed Doctor Man. He has patients lie down for 30 or 60 minutes of massage services as he eases sinews by employing strokes of the Swedish and relaxation modalities. Daniel's health center also burrows down deeper into the body through acupressure and cranial-sacral massage, and he offers reiki and guided meditation to quiet surging storms in the cerebral cortex.
Tonic Salon’s continually trained stylists pamper guests with eco-conscious Aveda products in a sleek studio bedecked with local artwork. During the Elemental Nature facial, the staff busies complexions with an extensive skin consultation and a beautifying bundle of cleanser, toner, refiner, mask, moisturizer, and massage aimed at bringing relaxed smiles to future driver's license photos. Afterward, the Eye Zone treatment helps peepers part ways with puffiness, wrinkles, and shadowy circles. Glamour gurus shift attention toward feet during the Caribbean Therapy pedicure to lavish peds with a soak, foot scrub, massage, and polish change or nail-art portraits of Grover Cleveland.
If clients peek into the drawers of one of the stylist stations at Chrysalis Salon & Spa, they'll find a variety of tools—scissors for snipping new looks, foils for tinting locks with highlights, and spray for teasing hair into updos. Over at the nail stations, they'll find a sweeping rainbow of shellac, acrylic, and gel polishes. And in the spa area, there are oils and skincare products for facials, waxes, and body treatments.
Using a variety of specialized lasers and high-quality skincare products, experienced aestheticians help rid their clients of unwanted wrinkles, acne, cellulite, and hair. To that end, they offer a service menu of Botox, custom facials, and i-Lipo as well as laser hair removal and electrolysis.
Bella Salon and Spa’s stylists use their aesthetic expertise to restore order and charm to manes. For soft and lustrous strands, a stylist can lather locks with a deep-conditioning treatment, or add texture with partial or permanent waves. The staff can also render partial highlights that draw attention to a favorite facial feature or full highlights that boldly cover the entire head. In addition to styling hair, Bella Salon and Spa specializes in reshaping physiques with slimming wraps. They offer six different body wraps, each of which can help tighten waistlines and reduce the presence of cellulite more efficiently than wearing an inner tube four sizes too small.
