Friends Hair & Nails, a sister salon to Andrew Marke, treats noodle nest, nail beds, and soul sacks with a range of services. Guests can opt to primp and pamper puppet-show starlets with a mani-pedi. An experienced nail nurturer cleans, clips, and contours before adding a fresh coat of polish.
At Aretée, owner Olga Tecos and her staff remedy skin ailments and muscular maladies with a full line of massages and facials for men, women, and teens. The spa's aestheticians help improve skin complexion with botanical-based Aveda skincare products, which use no animal byproducts, pore-clogging oils, or tails of newt. The spa also offers spa parties and the services of a wedding planner and professional photographer, and beauty products and diverse skincare lines address skincare issues with moisturizers, cleansers, and masks.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
New Life Fitness World motivates calories crusaders with personal trainers and more than 140 hours of group classes. Launch fitness plans in a one-on-one training session before bounding into any of the four locations' exercise courses, such as cycling, Zumba, and Piyo, a combination of yoga, Pilates, and trick yo-yoing. After land-based laps around the indoor tracks, or the aquatic equivalent in the indoor heated pools, fit fiddles can indulge in a sauna steam, a hot-tub soak, or a tanning session. Towel service and locker rooms facilitate transitions out of the gym, while childcare frees parents from the stress of pushing strollers while jogging on the treadmill.
Fingers slowly manipulate the muscle fibers along clients' spines at Tree Of Life, releasing tension and seemingly making stress evaporate as they move down the back. This is a Swedish massage, a technique that the three massage therapists at Tree of Life know extremely well. While encouraging relaxation through these lighter massages is certainly a part of their repertoires, each also has a host of other modalities in which they specialize. Among these, deep tissue massages ameliorate aches and pains, while romantic couples sessions make it unnecessary to hold your own hand during the massage.
Though the words "deep-tissue massage" often call to mind strenuous pressure on sore muscles, the certified staffers at Tamara's Touch manage to achieve beneficial results while using a gentle approach. To coax stress from bodies, they manipulate muscles using Japanese-style acupressure techniques during shiatsu massage, and use polarity massages to rebalance the body's energy, relieving clients of the need to sleep on a teeter-totter. The crew also takes special care of pregnant clients, seniors, and athletes.
