To perform the most soothing massage possible, the licensed massage therapists at Scents & SenseAbilities tailor treatments to each individual’s personal aches and pains. Beyond classic Swedish and deep-tissue styles, the specialists harness alternative modalities such as ACE cupping and bamboo massage to evict more stubborn knots. Sessions find a tranquil complement in hand and foot treatments, facials, and aromatherapy that invigorates with the smell of lavender or comforts with scents of kitten yawns. The therapists will also emerge from their pampering haven to perform on-site massage services for larger parties.
Taking a natural, holistic, preventative approach to wellness is the goal of Stephanie Paylor at Tranquil Touch, where she uses her skills as a massage therapist to provide relaxation and stress relief. First assessing the source of tension or discomfort, Stephanie tailors her services to each client, providing deep-tissue massage for recurring pain or sports injuries, Swedish massage to relax and relieve tension, and prenatal massage for bun ovens.
Each Body's Kneaded one-hour massage is customized to relieve individual aches and pains. Lie back inside the quiet and comfortable studio, as soft music provides a beat for stress particles to dance into oblivion. Skilled therapists draw from a tension-taming arsenal of massage techniques, such as trigger-point therapy and ashiatsu foot massage, in which therapists balance above patients and use their feet to dropkick muscle pain. A 60-minute sports massage prepares athletes for peak performance, whereas pregnancy massages soothe sciatic-nerve owners with tiny soccer players inside. Applying a combination of essential oils and heat therapy loosens knots organically, leaving bodies limp with relaxation. No matter what treatment you receive, you'll leave the Body's Kneaded premises with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
With a combined 20 years in the salon industry as a stylist and a certified national color educator for John Paul Mitchell, Cara Lentz knows how to resurrect dulled strands with fresh, vivid hues. When she founded Bliss&Co Advanced Education Studio, she made sure to install an interactive color bar where stylists could mix and match tones to create clients’ exact desired hair color.
The salon’s beauticians, who are categorized in three tiers of experience levels, wield a full line of Paul Mitchell, Tea Tree, and Awapuhi Wild Ginger products to create flowing, multitonal styles, or to make strands stand straight up for the popular “hanging upside down” look. Once salon treatments conclude, stylists showcase the salon’s collection of retail products that clients can use to maintain their new hairdos at home.
Bliss&Co Salon and Day Spa's aestheticians offer a host of beautification services, including exfoliating peels, microdermabrasion, waxing, facials, and scrubs.
Massage therapist Brittyne Leonard draws upon training in multiple massage modalities and a degree in rehabilitation studies to heal her clients’ physical and mental stresses. Her nurturing hands glide along muscles and knead out trouble areas or manipulate trigger points, filling the studio with relaxed sighs, while the skinny massage body wrap works to tighten and tone client's bodies. Leonard also applies knowledge and certification in Japanese anti-aging facial techniques to lessen frown lines from aging and jobs as Dennis the Menace’s parole officer.
