Betty Rios, the skilled beauty professional at Bare Necessities, boasts years of experience in services that ranges from aesthetics to skincare. She adds a dash of relaxation to makeovers by seating clients in massage chairs surrounded by earth-toned walls, floral accents, and Technicolor geometric designs that double as instructions for making flightless paper airplanes.
The aestheticians at Salon Italiano elongate lid wisps by individually applying extensions to each lash. Over the course of about 2.5 hours, eye experts secure ocular stalks with a firm yet flexible hold using NovaLash Platinum Bond adhesive, fluffing eye fringe to a fuller look that can extinguish building fires in a single wink. The extensions typically last the life cycle of each lash, which naturally sheds in about six to eight weeks.
Calmane Wellness Massage pampers the body and mind with therapeutic, relaxing massages. Owner Susan Folker puts her 11 years of magic-hand mastery and hot-stone knowhow to work with a soothing, indulgent 90-minute hot-stone massage, relighting internal furnaces and turning muscle tension loose like a stampede of Jell-O buffalo. A strategic arrangement of gently heated, smooth basalt-lava stones across the human carapace delivers a warmth that drains away tension, bringing muscles to the optimal stress-exorcism temperature and increasing the body's internal newspaper circulation.
Licensed massage therapist Diana McClung pampers fatigued frames with a variety of techniques that span three therapeutic modalities. Swedish massages draw on the even-handed wisdom of Norsemen to smooth out stress-laden meatballs and repair shoddy back furniture with long, kneading strokes. Give your body a break and surrender to an hour of deliberate strokes and direct pressure during a more intensive deep-tissue massage that targets aches lodged in muscular substrata. Trigger-point massages address areas of chronic pain, as Diana’s five-fingered sentinels search for pockets of tension hiding in the body’s nooks and crannies. Regardless of the modality, the myriad benefits of massage include relief of cramps and muscle spasms, improved joint flexibility, and the unearthing of precious stones discovered while quarrying in muscle mines.
I specialize in Relaxing & Deep Tissue Massage, I have trained in Sciatica, Carpal Tunnel, Medical Massage for shoulders, neck, lower back & hips. During your massage we will discuss what techniques will work best for you. I take appointments Monday thru Friday 8-6pm and Saturday 10-4pm
When a person loses one sense, the need to compensate for its loss can actually increase the acuity of the four others. Such is the case with Aaron Reed, whose lack of eyesight has allowed him to develop other talents—most notably, his ability to listen. After spending six years as a motivational speaker and discovering a passion for working with and helping others, Reed began practicing massage therapy. Today, he continues to draw on his uniquely perceptive sense of touch to unwind muscular tension and soothe bodily aches.
Reed has mastered Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and Thai massage and blends these modalities in custom massages geared toward his client’s specific needs. To get to know these needs a little better, he begins each visit with a 15-minute consultation. Then, he invites clients to relax in a private room suffused with the aromas of scented candles. Clients can request to play music of their own or simply relax to a soundtrack of birds chirping, trees rustling in the wind, and sore muscles howling at the moon.
