Co-owner of Natural Healing and Massage Linda Clapp Tripp works to harness healing energy and soothe her clients' aches and pains during her signature reiki treatments. In addition to reiki, Tripp also specializes in integrative reflexology, which targets health issues at foot level by stimulating pressure points.
Feet soak in a cool tub of water spiked with a concoction of real rum, lime juice, and moisturizers before a nail technician exfoliates lower appendages with a sugar scrub made with more lime juice and mint leaves. The pedicure also includes a moisturizing mint mask for tootsies, a massage with a lime-scented crème, and classic filing and polishing services.
To enhance the deluxe pedicure, toes can dip into paraffin wax that’s loaded with minerals in order to restore skin’s moisture. Alternatively, shellac manicures include shaping, cuticle care, and the application of a specially formulated polish that cures beneath a UV lamp. Nails dry instantly and stay flaw-free for up to two weeks, depending on the client’s tendency to stick fingers into electrical outlets.
Six types of massage spread from the skilled fingers of licensed therapist Susan Lynne Harmuth, helping clients relax a number of different ways. They can go traditional with Swedish or deep-tissue massage, or they can relax under the healing power of hot bamboo, hot stones, or hot ginger. Whatever the client's choice, Susan customizes her stokes to accommodate an infinite number of body types and kinds of tension.
Licensed therapist Hugo Zapata works with each client to understand his or her unique massage needs and customize a truly beneficial experience. He mingles techniques from Swedish, deep tissue, and sports massage to promote relaxation while easing muscle pain from injuries, chronic tension, or sleeping on a bed of nails. The office holds extended hours seven days a week to accommodate busy schedules.
Administered by Dr. Vijay Gandla, each microdermabrasion delicately buffs away dry and damaged skin, like a gentle breeze eroding accumulated peanut butter. The quick and comfortable 35-minute treatment strips off the entire outer layer of skin to reveal the fresh, new layer underneath. Patients struggling with acne, signs of aging, and sun damage can shed a weathered complexion and replace it with a vibrant sheen that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Because of Magnolia Medical Spa's clean, cozy treatment rooms and accommodating staff, microdermabrasions there are more unintimidating and relaxing than lounging on a La-Z-Boy clearing pores with clingy duct tape at home.
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.
Treating tense muscles is like bargain hunting—it can conserve a lot of money in the long run but shouldn’t be done with the aid of a shady character in a dark alley. Amid soothing décor featuring earthy tones and violet hues, clients of Massage Envy begin their 90-minute session with an initial consultation that determines which customized massage will provide the best results. For example, a sports massage provides treatment specific to the athlete’s sport, reflexology targets points on the extremities to balance the nervous system, and deep-tissue massage unties knots while relieving chronic muscle tension. Trigger-point therapy alleviates tight areas within muscle tissue through cycles of isolated pressure and release, while a Swedish massage relaxes the whole body with long, gliding strokes. The professional massage therapists at Massage Envy will apply the necessary muscle treatment with pinpoint precision and buttery smoothness during convenient hours, including evenings and weekends.
