Escape's skilled staff dispatches tension and revitalizes weary façades with customized spa services amid rich wood furnishings and walls stippled a cheery yellow. Licensed massage therapists warm skin surfaces, evicting stress and realigning rebellious sinews with gliding Swedish techniques and aromatherapy oils. Extracted from plant leaves and garden safety deposit boxes, scented oils can transport clients to calming oases, invigorating wellsprings, or insulated forests depending on client's aroma of choice.
Organic and natural products help beauty pros pamper guests at Soul Beautiful Day Spa & Wellness Center. They are used in a variety of skincare services, including a pink-grapefruit exfoliating treatment that is applied to the back, hands, and feet. Guests also relax during massages and sit for brightly colored manicures and pedicures.
The massage therapists at Hands of Choice knead away patients' muscular tension and emotional stress during full-body rubdowns augmented by hydrotherapy treatments. Clients enter a private room and slip into a plush towel before discussing a custom treatment to target specific aches and pains with a massage therapist. The therapist's hands seek out tendons' tension through sweeping strokes that incorporate the gentle pressures of Swedish massage with the connective-tissue pampering of myofascial release. Each 60- to 90-minute session calls on as many as 10 different massage techniques to draw knots away from deep densities of musculature without the aid of telekinesis. Therapists accessorize the 90-minute supreme massage with hydrotherapy treatments, during which moist-heat packs warm up muscles so clients receive a deeper massage. Patients can keep on pants or undergarments if desired to help them feel more comfortable.
Many people are guilty of putting undue pressure on their bodies, but probably not 405 pounds worth. Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Filimon hoisted that much weight to claim a state weightlifting championship in high school, giving him a first-hand perspective on the body's limitations and the strength to shoulder half the medical partnership of Advanced Chiropractic Associates, Inc. His partner, Doctor of Chiropractic Joseph Ferrantelli, literally wrote the book––two textbooks in fact––on the clinic's preferred method of treatment, Clinical Biomechanics of Posture (CBP), a method that aims to balance areas of pain or injury with mirror-image adjustments and exercises that focus on the alignment of the entire spine. The doctors also specialize in decompression therapy, on-site massage, laser therapy for chronic pain or depressed cats, and auto-accident-injury treatment, for which Dr. Ferrantelli has attended numerous continuing-education seminars.
The aestheticians at Blu Salon not only gussy up guests from head to toe with a range of beautifying services but also go the extra mile to ensure that clients are as relaxed as possible. After soothing skin and remedying epidermal maladies with glycolic peels and a variety of facials, the relaxation experts complement face-refurbishing treatments with shiatsu massages that catapult sore bodies onto cloud nine—or into the neighbor’s backyard jacuzzi. While clients yield their hands and feet to the skilled manicurist Shantel, they snuggle into a tension-taming massage chair and unload their stresses. After nail techs finish dolling up digits, they also can perform a foot massage upon request. The salon’s menu of services rounds out with eyebrow, lip, and forearm waxing as well as UV-tanning sessions.
Libelle Organic Salon & Spa's owner Connie Scheidegger leads a team of experienced cosmetic professionals as they work together to beautify customers using purely organic products. Armed with Organic Salon Systems products—which are free of ammonia, carcinogens, formaldehydes, and illegal smells—the staff treats clients to expert hair services such as cuts, styles, and coloring for everyday trims or special occasions. They also soothe muscles with massages and exfoliate the epidermis with custom skin care treatments designed for the entire body. Nail and waxing treatments round out the menu of services.
