Despite what its name might suggest, Hair Formations focuses on more than just the locks on top of your head. The family-owned and operated business provides a vast range of salon, spa, and tanning services. That's especially true of its Hubertus location, where you can enjoy skincare treatments, spray tanning sessions, and more than five different types of massage.
Licensed massage therapist Tracy Sprader reduces clients' mental stress and muscular tension with custom kneading routines performed over the course of 60 or 90 minutes. As senses ripen amid the chocolate-hued walls and flickering candles of a private treatment room, Tracy divines the client’s particular massage preferences through a full consultation. Once Tracy has determined a game plan that's equally suited to assuaging aches as it is to scrambling the letters on a Scrabble board, her skilled fingers shuffle across backs, executing either relaxation or deep-tissue massages. The relaxation massage offers light to medium pressure while the deep-tissue option involves deeper kneading. Both massages employ a combination of hot-and-cold therapy.
Long before modern medical conveniences?such as computers and robot doctors?the primary form of therapy was massage. And it's still going strong. Working out of Shade Tree Massage, licensed massage therapist Kristin Schlosser can sideline ailments ranging from achy muscles to sports injuries with a diverse array of healing techniques. Guests may request flowing Swedish strokes to ease tension or focus on lower-layer aches with Kristin's signature deep-tissue massage.
As its name might suggest, A Touch of Health is where clients go to treat their bodies well. Massage therapists Jennifer Yech and Vicki Walther use their experienced hands to manipulate muscles and improve circulation and quality of life. They completely customize every session to the individual's needs, dispatching clinical-grade strokes specifically designed with health and wellness in mind.
Sunshine isn't necessary at Elegant Tan?the salon imbues clients? skin with a golden hue using sunless tanning beds and booths set up in private rooms. Sessions last anywhere from a quick 8-minute trip in a standup booth to a relaxing 20 minutes spend in a lie-down bed. To continue that relaxation, the salon's on-staff massage therapists will unravel muscle knots, scrub skin with a sea-salt body polish, and encase bodies in a detoxifying wrap or swaddling blanket.
