The owner of Bella Capelli Salone & Day Spa, Karla, has been a stylist since the mid-1980s. Every day she strives to surround her clients with a warm, welcoming environment. She has some help, of course, starting with the salon itself. Housed in a restored home, the space charms with dark, rustic wooden floors and vintage-inspired furniture. Prior to spa treatments such as full-body massages or deep-cleansing facials, guests can soak in the studio’s claw-foot tub inside a softly lit room for utmost relaxation. From there, they can head to one of the home's private spa areas, or perhaps make their way to the salon for haircuts or color treatments. A nail technician works nearby, performing manicures and pedicures ranging from express treatments to massage-fueled signature escapes.
The staff at Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center's Dublin location is dedicated to balancing body and mind. To do this, aesthetician Mallory Beres and acupuncturist and massage therapist Leslie A. Broucker offer a slew of aesthetic and holistic services, including hot-stone therapy, acupuncture, facials, all-natural mani-pedis, infrared sauna sessions, and signature herbal body wraps that are soaked and heated to 150 degrees. The center also pampers clients with its use of high-end products including Jane Iredale, HydroPeptides, and Bioelement skin care lines. Beres is an Aveda Institute of Esthiology graduate and Broucker is a former collegiate athletic trainer who tended to athletes' injuries for more than 15 years.
At Back to Health, Drs. Thomas Donahue and David Sampson dedicate themselves to helping the body achieve maximum health by facilitating its natural healing capabilities. To do this, the doctors eschew all drugs and invasive surgical techniques in favor of chiropractic care, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle advice. Their state-of-the-art facility also enhances healing treatments with massage services, paraffin baths, and moist heat therapy.
Candace Lee-Staples dedicates her studio to the holistic practice of massage, embracing its therapeutic and relaxation-inducing benefits by offering an assortment of modalities. She and her team of therapists host consultations with each client beforehand, gathering details to plan personalized sessions. With the Swedish modality, they'll gently relieve pent-up stress and induce an inexplicable fondness for lingonberries, while targeting chronic back pains during deep-tissue and myofascial massages. They also offer sole-soothing reflexology treatments designed to cultivate total-body wellness.
Spa owners Lisa Jordan and Jami Morone have transported their own slice of the tropics to Ohio. The Cove Wellness Spa was inspired by their vacation to Hawaii, which they took after graduating from aesthetics school together. While there, they sought a secluded beach spot that would shield them from the islands' bustling tourists and heat-seeking coconuts. The cove that they found fulfilled their desire for total serenity and also sparked the idea for the spa they would manage on their return to the mainland.
Today, Lisa and Jami try to recapture the feeling of ultimate leisure that overtook them in their Hawaiian haven. They typically greet guests at the spa's doors, ushering them into a familial fold of clients. Their treatments range from body wraps to tanning, with waxing for men and women and facials that draw from nature with ingredients such as pumpkin, berries, and chocolate.
Pamper Moment indulges the senses with a full salon menu of invigorating nail, hair, and spa treatments. Stylists can cultivate new face-framing styles or nix unflattering fuzz with swift waxing techniques. Muscular knots melt beneath essential oils and hot-stone bodywork, and complexions come to life during exfoliating facials. To ensure cleanliness during mani-pedi sessions, Pamper Moment utilizes the Sani-Tablet, a bath capsule that kills bacteria more effectively than the towering robots in most soap commercials.
The trained and licensed massage therapists at Elements Therapeutic Massage address health and stress-related conditions with gliding strokes and concentrated kneads.
