Muscle knots. Chronic aches. Deep-seated reservoirs of stress and anxiety. These and other ailments bring clients to Elements Therapeutic Massage, where they find relief courtesy of professional therapists who customize their treatments to match individual needs. The studio’s unique, level-based system gives clients an idea of what to expect during the session; they can request a low level for a gentler experience or opt for a higher level to eliminate any soreness remaining from the previous day’s jousting tournament. Each massage therapist has his or her own specialties, and treatments may draw on relaxing Swedish and hot-stone techniques or firmer deep-tissue and trigger-point strokes.
Hair & Body Solutions gives clients a boost of confidence by revitalizing and updating their look through gentle spa treatments. The trained staff, with a combined 40 years of experience, boasts waxing solutions for typical and sensitive-skin types alike. Browologists can do a simple cleanup over the above-eye arches or swoop in for a full-on furrowed remix. Post-waxing, aestheticians apply Dermalogica UltraCalming skincare products, providing a buttery-smooth sensation previously known only to hand-churned dairy products and baby elephants who haven't yet wrinkled. Sit back in the salon's sophisticated, warm atmosphere and allow the staff to uproot the least favorite follicles from all notoriously needy pores.
Whether they're designing new hairstyles or clarifying skin, the team at Capricio Salon and Spa relies on top-shelf salon and spa products. Redken, Davines, Moroccanoil, and Brazilian Blowout are a few of the name-brand products staffers sprinkle over clients during their signature hair services, such as cuts, color treatments, and formal updos. When performing skin treatments, they use Dermalogica products, which omit common irritants, such as lanolin, alcohol, and artificial colors.
Longtime stylist Elizabeth D'Acquisto opened Salone with her mother Penny and has since expanded it twice to accommodate a 14-person staff and shelves of Aveda products. The salon's staff draw on backgrounds in individual styling and aesthetics as they pamper the coiffures, skin, and nails of clients with Aveda products made from earth-culled botanicals. Whether trimming tresses, massaging away muscle aches, or waxing eyebrows to match favorite Flash Gordon villains, stylists produce sleek, professional results.
Karma: A Relaxation Spa believes in the restorative power of relaxation, administered by a skilled staff of therapists and care-bringers. Toxic-toed clients may wish to opt for a Minx pedicure, which begins with a thorough filing, trimming, and shaping of toenails and cuticles before feet are exfoliated to remove dirt and candy wrappers clogging pores. Individual Minx nails are then applied to each finger in your choice of fashionable colors and patterns, with a massage of the feet and legs rubbing stress from the rainbow-bright bike peddlers.
Offering top-notch beautification services, Victoria's Hair Works helps visitors acquire a sleek silhouette, leaving filamentous biomaterials sulking outside skin walls like yesterday's milk bottles. There is no follicle too wispy or fuzz too peachy to avoid the professional waxing maidens at Victoria's. Spiff up facial fuzz with eyebrow waxing ($11), lip waxing ($11), or a combo eyebrow-lip treatment ($20), or impress newfound, unfound, or rebound friends with an aerodynamic half-leg wax ($35) or full-leg wax (starting at $55). You can also fire a barrage of buff to the far nether-reaches of your bionic galaxy with bikini ( $25+) and Brazilian waxing ($50) options.
