Massage therapist Cheri hand-blends plant-derived essential oils to target specific ailments such as headaches, anxiety, or insomnia with soothing, chemical-free aromatherapy scents.

It's all about the experience at Anointed Nails & Spa. And the Blue Island beauty shop's team ensures that experience ends with feelings of relaxation and rejuvenation. The pampering reaches a peak with the spa mani-pedi, which uses heated stones to ease knots in the lower legs and hands.
The nail technicians draw from a tool box of OPI, Essie, and China Glaze shades along with no-chip polishes and acrylic tips. With these, they create intricate nail art with myriad colors, vibrant decals, and rhinestones specifically designed to jazz up jazz hands. The team also removes facial hair with warm wax and adds volume to lash lines with extensions.
At Clinical Massage Therapy, the licensed therapists aim to do more than simply relax their clients. Each of their carefully selected repertoire of nine styles was chosen for its capacity to boost clients' overall health and decrease stress. With regular massage sessions, the therapists can help minimize clients' chronic health issues and melt away stress before it has a chance to erupt in a misplaced argument with noisy backyard squirrels. Each massage begins with a consultation, after which therapists treat the needs of individual backs with skills gleaned from ongoing education classes.
When you're dreaming up a new look with the stylists and nail technicians of Garcia's Hair Salon, the sky's the limit. Hair can transform into perfect ombre ringlets or sleek, subtly highlighted bobs, and mani-pedis impart styles ranging from coy (crisp French tips) to dramatic (glittering 3-D embellishments that recite Shakespeare when held up to your ear). Such versatile fashions demand an equally stylish setting, and Garcia's decor delivers: accent walls alternate between cream, red, and brick, and a healthy dose of sunlight keeps the moods as lofty as the updos.
Knowing that tattooing is one of the ultimate forms of self-expression, Firehouse Tattoos' artists understand the importance of each line and every dot of pigment they leave on client skin. They meticulously put those lines and pigments together to craft realistic portraits, as well as flights of fancy such as cartoons and mythical creatures. Besides tattoo services, they also execute professional piercings of everything from bellybuttons to cheeks.
Nail technicians at The Sole Fetish Nail Parlour buff fingers and toes until they are smooth, soft, and glistening at the ends. During the Basic Sole 6 manicure, technicians soak hands in a signature bath blend, then file each nail into the shape of a square, oval, or unicorn. Technicians groom cuticles, buff dry skin, and deliver a relaxing massage before a coat of polish seals in handiwork. The express pedicure includes a softening and signature foot soak in addition to basic nail shaping and cuticle sculpting. After buffing removes dull skin and calluses and reveals fresh, softer skin unseen since you were 4, toenails bathe in a shiny layer of polish. Clients may choose to upgrade the manicure or pedicure to a citrus-infused session that includes a paraffin dip or a Minty Winter Ice spa pedicure with a spearmint and eucalyptus soak, exfoliation, warming foot mask, and foot and leg massage.
