The recently opened Amora Spa & Nail Salon is a beauty-focused jack-of-all-trades. The staff specializes in an extensive list of services, from smoothing keratin hair treatments to body and facial waxes; from facials and microdermabrasions to foot and hand massages. Overseeing it all is salon owner Wendy Aboelmatty, a licensed cosmetologist herself for more than 25 years.
Certified massage therapist Timothy E. Marable tailors his custom massages to each clients particular muscular issues. However, his kneads don't only help dissolve these aches—they can also boost circulation, diffuse stress, and increase flexibility. For an added touch of luxury, Timothy can incorporate spa-like extras into his sessions, such as scented oil or an exfoliating milk-and-honey scrub.
Massage Bliss and Wellness Center LLC's experienced therapist has two goals for every treatment: to relieve muscular tension and to restore balance and range of movement. During pressure-point therapy, nimble fingers target pockets of collected stress that block nerve energy, allowing it to flow freely again. Reflexology sessions focus on the feet to manipulate pressure points that trigger specific muscles throughout the body and specific garage doors throughout the city. For the center's Skinny massage, clients sport a body wrap, fashioned to tighten skin along the waist, legs, or arms, as the therapist kneads tension and boosts circulation with a gentle massage.
Each session at Hands on Massage Therapies incorporates several types of massage to suit each client’s individual needs. Therapists blend services ranging from sports and pregnancy massage to trigger-point therapy and wax treatments, which encase the hand in a thin layer of paraffin to sooth the skin and protect the fingers as they juggle fireballs.
The skincare professionals at Belissa Salon and Spa specialize in smoothing out the body’s rougher edges. Though they draw upon years of experience in aesthetics, they don’t rely solely on their own wits—professional Dermalogica products crafted from natural ingredients aid them as they exfoliate and resurface skin.
For a service that exemplifies all the others, look no further than the Dermalogica thermal body treatment, which exfoliates with a natural blend of sea salt, dried seaweed, and fruit enzymes. Other, equally effective remedies may detoxify skin with mineral mud or wraps soaked in soothing plant extracts. And skin isn’t all the staff pays attention to. They also cut and color hair, groom nails, and relax muscles with six different massages, including hot-stone therapy and a prenatal style that incorporates heated alphabet blocks.
A tranquil experience awaits clients who waltz through the doors of A New Length Salon & Day Spa, where attentive staffers greet them with an array of hair, skin, and massage services. Five stylists scurry across the salon floor, skillfully tending to manes with customized haircuts, highlights, and straightening treatments utilizing more than 15 brands of beauty products including Keune and Bio Ionic haircare. Inside a private treatment room, an aesthetician tends to skin, peering into pores to decipher skin types and predict next week's lottery numbers. Visages can be balanced and restored to more youthful appearances with the aid of traditional aesthetic services, such as brow tinting and waxing, or more advanced medi-spa treatments such as Diamond microdermabrasion. Faces are further beautified at the hands of a trained makeup artist wielding True skincare and cosmetics, a line of products infused with a free-radical fighting antioxidant. During makeup applications, artists narrate every brush stroke so clients can recreate the look at home. A New Length's staff also uses their beautification skills to pay it forward by donating proceeds from haircuts, facials, massages, and pink polish to the Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation.
