Skin is Anisha Kanakia Sanghani’s canvas, and her intricate masterpieces—henna designs, painted faces, and nail art—enjoy fleeting but beautiful lives on their wearers. She has been embellishing skin with henna—a paste made of all-natural ingredients such as lemon, eucalyptus, and coffee—for more than two decades, drawing from both traditional and contemporary influences to conjure her designs. In those years, she has decorated skinscapes at a bevy of public events and taught others to delineate whorls and loops at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. The portable nature of her craft lets her practice at festivals, enliven girls’ nights, and visit study groups to etch palms with decoratively concealed chemistry equations before an exam. Although Anisha concentrates on temporary, cheek- and palm-sized work, not all of her handiwork has disappeared from this earth; she also applies her talents to murals, portraiture, and graphic design.
The massage therapists at Kindred Spirits Bodyworks & Massage don't expect you to settle for treatments that don't fully address your aches. Instead, they tailor massages to precisely what you need, mixing modalities like Swedish and trigger-point therapy to relieve everything from lower-back pain and anxiety to massages that target the muscles that contribute to TMJ/lockjaw. Kindred Spirits's practitioners even pair healing with pampering by following many of their massages with scented paraffin wax that softens hands and feet.
Before Kellie Asher got her state certification and was asked to perform makeovers on Fox News, she got her start applying stage makeup for the actors in her high school. Today, she calls upon all that experience to pamper guests of all ages with traditional and airbrush makeup applications. To ensure the face is a clean and healthy canvas, she also performs facials, chemical peels, and waxing services.
