Nationally certified massage therapist Alexis Rich melts muscular tightness and eases chronic pain with several massage modalities. Broad and fluid Swedish strokes smooth away stress, whereas deep-tissue massages target specific aches with additional pressure and a motivational speech. Clients can relax under the radiating warmth of a hot-stone massage or steep paws in a foot soak followed by an arch-plying reflexology treatment. Alexis also illuminates visages with custom facials, blending her own formulas from homemade ingredients. Guests repose in a private room sheltered by sapphire surroundings and a wall mirror rimmed in ethereal lights that lends to an ambiance calmer than a placid lake after anger-management classes.
For more than two decades, the experienced technicians at In The Nails have been making Huntsville’s scenery brighter by outfitting its residents with vibrant polish and artificial nails as well as pampering clients with a selection of skincare and massage services, including deep-tisse and shiatsu treatments. During relaxing manicures, they brush nails with a hypoallergenic shellac that sports a mirror-like finish and lasts up to 14 days without cracking, chipping, or caramelizing. Along with the expert nailcare that inspired the salon’s name, the team promotes all-over wellness with massages, peels, waxing, and other clinical skincare services and participates in community-service efforts to keep discarded hangnails off the streets.
Technician Anita Ray believes the best route to relaxation involves natural products and techniques.

To help clients to achieve desired results, Anita begins appointments with a consultation and analysis, which yields recommendations for the proper procedure and at-home care.

The caring aestheticians at Salon 921 & Day Spa revamp visages and pamper pelts with an arsenal of beauty and relaxation services amidst an inviting, homey atmosphere. The renewing European facial can whisk away pore impurities and promote visage vibrancy. Therein, a licensed aesthetician will deep clean and exfoliate pores, shroud cheeks in a personalized treatment mask and, like a forthright shopkeeper with a broom,sweep loitering, delinquent stress from the neck, shoulders, face, hands, and arms. Meanwhile, the soothe-smithing extends to the whole corpus with any of your choice of massage modalities. In the Swedish massage, for example, a licensed therapist will customize their light-to-medium pressure to increase circulation, cancel tension, and renew your favorite season of M.A.S.H.
