Licensed massage therapist Eric Leeds improves range of motion in achy human hinges with his signature bodywork. To insure customized care, each session begins with a consultation, wherein he consults with clients and their old home movies to determine the source of lingering tension. Using this info, he can focus bodywork on the areas of largest concern for maximum effect.
The duo behind Odara Salon and Spa – one hairstylist, Amanda, and one aesthetician, ReQuesia – began their partnership as an on-location beauty team. They worked on-location services for local weddings and Quinceanera celebrations to keep revelers looking their best. After the demand for their services grew, they eventually decided to set down roots, and acquired a space to practice their face-flattering trades.
Their cooperative efforts continue to bear fruit, as one focuses on trimming, coloring, and styling hair, and the other on make-up application and smoothing skin. The stylist uses Paul Mitchell-recommended Awapuhi Luxury hair care products for all her services, while the aesthetician swears by the DermaQuest Skincare line. As an added bonus, they throw in scalp massages and shampoo with haircuts and upper body massages with spa services.
Amae Tranquility Massage's licensed therapist melds Eastern and Western techniques to help clients heal their bodies and calm their minds. When clients arrive at the studio, they're led to a private treatment room that's softly lit and painted in calming purple hues. Once inside, they settle onto a massage table draped in linens from Comphy Co., the same brand used by the Ritz Carlton and the Spa at the Four Seasons. Though clients are welcome to just sit back, relax, and reflect on life or the time they spent in timeout that day, they can also choose to supercharge the massage session with add-ons such as body scrubs and wraps.
As clients step inside a massage treatment room at Body Logic Massage, soft lighting pairs with a hint of aromatherapy to set the stage for sublime relaxation. For all initial sessions, the massage therapist consults with the client to review health history and help ensure optimal results. Massages are available in durations ranging from 15 to 90 minutes, and clients can opt to undress completely, remain fully clothed, or wear an old suit of armor—whichever is most comfortable. In addition to traditional massage sessions, Body Logic Massage also offers ear-candling services and chair massages.
Jena Massie, owner of Serenity Massage P.L.L.C., is not only a licensed massage therapist, but also an instructor and provider of continuing education. She has a passion for sharing the benefits of bodywork with both her clients and peers, preaching a message of stress-relief and improved well-being.
She is joined at her massage establishment by a team of other therapists, each member experienced in a variety of different modalities that includes deep-tissue massage, maternity massage, and trigger-point massage. Additionally, they offer a handful of spa services that leave the skin smoother and more refreshed than a newt who has just taken a nap, including paraffin treatments for the hands and feet, facial massages coupled with masks, and seaweed body wraps.
The staff at Legolory's Salon and Spa maintains a simple formula for successful beauty treatments: extensively trained stylists and aestheticians plus salon-grade products. To wit, these specialists rely on Pureology shampoos and hair products to give hair a clean bounce and Redken color products to confer bright, natural-looking hues. Elsewhere in the vibrant facility, which is marked by bright-green walls and blonde-wooden floors, they wax brows into clean arches and groom and paint nails.
The licensed medical professionals and technicians at Venus Tan and Spa iron out wrinkles and unearth fresher, younger skin with sophisticated facial treatments. Nurse-administered Botox injections flatten out facial furrows by freezing muscles and tightening up the hard-to-reach screws behind the ears. Smoothed-out results appear within three to seven days after the 10- to 15-minute procedure and can last up to four months. Beauty mavens can follow up the treatment with a half-hour diamond microdermabrasion to draw back the face’s dull curtains of dead skin, or tighten up sagging spots and recharge cheek-stored smile batteries with the gentle FDA-approved electric pulses of a 45-minute microcurrent facial.
