Bamboo Massage’s talented muscle defenders quash ache uprisings, root out resistant pockets of pain, and dispatch stress with custom blends of therapeutic bodywork. During a pretreatment debriefing, the therapist will draw from a massive deck of decompression tactics and match the most appropriate kneads to a client's needs, spicing them with essential oils for aromatherapy while avoiding inessential oils such as congealed bacon drippings. Soothing avocado-hued walls, idyllic music, and a serene spa-like atmosphere envelop each one-hour treatment, as the experienced massage therapist deploys gliding Swedish strokes, prods trigger points, and deftly maneuvers deep tissue to stifle mitochondrial sneezes. For even more luxuriant luxuriating, try the salon’s eponymous Bamboo Fusion treatments, starring warmed bamboo sticks that relax tense sinews. All massages cater to sensitive dermises with hypoallergenic oils, lotions, and rousing pep talks.

A stroll through La Rouge Spalon & Boutique is a promenade back in time. In the waiting room, a cherry-red leather sofa and black shelves inspire modernity; in another room, the proprietors channel the 1950s with striped walls and checkered floors. In a separate makeup room, six round palettes of foundation and eye shadow rise up from a table like the drum set of a 1980s hair band from the stage. This diverse variety of styles characterizes La Rouge Spalon, which embraces the changing times with sleek cuts and bold color highlights tailored to client preference. Healing wraps and infrared sauna sessions help detoxify the body while promoting relaxation and weight loss. Clients may also solicit La Rouge for a chip-resistant Shellac manicure, or nix unwanted hair from upper lips with a private waxing session.

A Paul Mitchell signature salon, Twilight Salon & Spa ensures that its talented stylists design and shape tresses according to the most current styles and techniques.

The demipermanent clear coat clings to hair for up to six weeks, promoting shine without distorting chemical or natural hair color. Scrupulous nail techs reward digits for grammatically correct text messaging with trimming, cuticle care, and an even varnish of OPI polish during a one-hour mani-pedi service.
