State-licensed manicurist and nationally certified massage therapist Brenda eases the chronic pain of fatigued muscles and occasional embarrassment of unkempt nails at Cosmic Touch. She draws from 15 years of experience and an education from a COMTA-certified school and the Aveda Institute of Beauty and Wellness to deliver Swedish and therapeutic massage, targeted foot reflexology, and manicure and pedicure services. Shellac manicures are available to keep polished surfaces chip-free for up to 2 weeks or one tool-free attempt at carving your initials into a tree.
As the husband-and-wife team behind Breathe Massage & Bodywork, Randy and Nina draw on two decades of combined massage experience to heal their clients with traditional and energy-focused techniques. Since they have worked in spas as well as chiropractic offices, their treatments tend to be both physically beneficial and as relaxing as a warm bath in chicken noodle soup. Among their specialty modalities, trigger-point therapy applies alternating pressures to relieve tension, and deep-tissue massage draws out toxins with firm strokes and friction. To experience a more holistic approach, clients can try cranial-sacral therapy or a reiki session; both alternative techniques work to calm the nerves and put the mind at peace.
At Lush Wax Boutique, it's all about making the client comfortable. The salon's waxers put clients at ease with a professional and amiable bedside manner. All staff members were hand-selected by the owners and passed a rigorous training program where they learned the best waxing techniques and how to tell the difference between body hair and a skein of yarn. Furthering client comfort, the salon also provides cleansing wipes, perfumes, and antibacterial foot sprays in each treatment room, so clients can freshen up before or after a waxing service.
At Wax In The City, the cream and hard waxes are blended specifically to minimize discomfort. Stringent about this technique, each in-house aesthetician is trained on how to properly blend and apply the waxes, stamping out any inferior methods the aestheticians may have picked up at other waxing businesses. In addition to keeping clients comfortable, the staff also keeps them safe. They strictly forbid double dipping and wear gloves during each waxing service.
