The sound of gentle rainfall and the warm flicker of candlelight create a peaceful environment inside the treatment room at Total Relaxation Massage, where certified massage therapist works to soothe pain and stress. Visitors relax on a heated bed while she kneads their muscles with warm oils, loosening tissues and dissipating tension.
Many of the stylists at Jovance Salon & Barbering have held their licenses for more than 20 years, which means they bring a full generation of experience to each haircut and beauty treatment. Using products from brands such as Aveda, MoroccanOil, and Get Fresh, they style and color new hairdos according to their clients' preferences. In a separate gentlemen's room, barbers cut hair, trim beards, and reposition monocles.
Once guests step through the doors at Anew Day Spa, they begin a mini vacation from mental and physical discomfort. By the time they are ready to walk back out and return to their lives, clients will have topped off their stores of relief and tranquility. In between, they can opt to sit in chairs and relax as relief cascades from sore shoulders and backs, or let therapists pore over their whole bodies as they decompress on massage tables. During reflexology sessions, a trained therapist applies liberating pressure to the feet to relieve pain all over the body and thank toes for teaching children how to accurately identify different kinds of piggies.
At Hibiscus Boutique Spa, clients’ relaxation begins before their appointments, with soft music playing in the lobby where a fountain gently bubbles. Each appointment begins with a consultation that helps the staff personalize massages, facials, and spa services to optimally satisfy each guest’s unique needs. The staff blends more than 150 raw ingredients including clays, herbs, essential oils, and flower waters to craft their own masks, toners, and serums in-house. Visitors may enjoy complimentary herbal tea and chocolate during their stay.
The certified massage therapists at Healing Through Massage compare the human body to a musical instrument: both need to be kept in tune to function optimally. Using relaxing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and shiatsu techniques, they work to restore the body to balance. Patrons can also opt for reflexology sessions, during which therapists apply precise pressure to the feet and hands.
During its 20 years in business, Meilin Salon & Spa has drawn its share of loyal clients, including one who travels from out of town just for a session in stylist/owner Amy?s chair. Chalk these allegiances up to the artistic stylists, who forego cookie-cutter services for customized treatments that take into account each client?s personal style and favorite shampoo flavor. Then there?s the atmosphere?saffron-colored walls evoke feelings of escape that are only elevated by the smell of organic oils, teas, candles, and all-natural fragrances. And, of course, there are the treatments themselves; haircuts, coloring services, and relaxing scalp massages incorporate all-natural hair care products, while relaxing massages, full body masques, mani-pedis, and facials leave clients feeling pampered from head to toe.
