Serenity Salon & Spa is a full service salon and spa that envelopes the body in relaxation from scalp to toe-tip with Eminence products for facial services and Mirabella products for make-up services. A skilled aesthetician can tackle the T-zone with a facial, or nix unflattering fuzz during a specialty wax, while a licensed stylist can engineer flattering layers and color highlights. Guests may also retreat to a private room for deep-tissue or soothing Swedish massage from the spa's licensed massage therapist.
“My back is killing me!” Steve Corson regularly heard complaints like this while working in the restaurant biz. The desire to quell backaches and workplace stress is what eventually drove him to become a licensed massage therapist. He set up shop in Full Throttle Ink tattoo parlor, where he dissolves tension with long, gliding Swedish strokes and concentrated deep-tissue kneads. Steve also tends to sports-related injuries, and he tackles painful knots built up over time or after pro games of Twister using trigger-point therapy.
As the founder of Yorktown Chiropractic, Dr. Philip Jeanmenne calls upon his advanced knowledge of anatomy and his experiences as an athlete to treat sports injuries and tend to the stresses of everyday life. His enthusiasm for the mechanisms of movement extends to his assistant, Amanda, who works closely with patients to address their concerns during exams and consultations. X-ray, ultrasound, and electronic muscle-stimulation equipment lines the office walls, lending assistance to Dr. Phil as he decompresses spines and tends to vertebral discs scratched from overplaying. On his rare breaks from providing and overseeing chiropractic, massage, and nutritional services, Dr. Phil strives to better understand the body’s needs through continuing education.
Licensed massage therapist Thomas Snyder works in two different settings: clients’ homes and his own homey, red-brick studio. In either case, he relaxes muscles and relieves tension with a diverse range of bodywork treatments, including therapeutic massage, craniosacral therapy, and reflexology. He even offers massage parties, during which he treats guests to soothing strokes in celebration of the host’s birthday, bridal shower, or other important events.
The beauty experts at Dreamers Day Spa employ Aveda and Dermalogica products to boost visitors' natural radiance in a sumptuously appointed spa washed in delicate neutral tones. Guests can indulge in pampering from head to toe, letting hairstylists snip tresses into face-flattering shapes, nail techs buff digits into glamorous fingertip accessories, and skin whisperers restore a healthy glow so luminous it could shame fireflies back into their mason jars. Glossy parquet floors reflect the glow of stained-glass windows and crystal chandeliers, and licensed massage therapists knead away tension in any of eight massage styles. Stylish moulding and vaulted ceilings in private treatment rooms create a hyper-luxurious environment for surreptitious midmassage naps.
The aestheticians at Clarity MediSpa help clients look and feel their best through beauty and wellness treatments. Wielding the Alexandrite laser, they blast away at unwanted hair on nearly any area of the body or take aim at sun spots, wrinkles, and undeveloped polaroids with IPL photo rejuvenation. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses bodies from the inside, while ionithermie body masks promote detoxification from the outside. Facials and injectable fillers fight the signs of aging without surgery, and soothing massages banish stress.
Ojas customizes its Body in Bliss massage session to the needs of each individual client in order to drain the body's tree trunk of its stress sap. The massage technician will start by speaking with you about your aches, pains, and anxiety dreams and will then use that knowledge to set his or her hand phasers to "relax." From there, simply lie still and bliss out as your tensions are massaged, stroked, kneaded, and occasionally garotted away. Body in Bliss incorporates a serenity-enhancing blend of essential oils that massage the nose as much as the body and uses warm stones to stimulate circulation and draw deep-set tension out of the body's muscles, joints, and field of glandmines. You'll leave Ojas's premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
