Fluffy green sheets and scented jasmine vanilla oil mark two of the most recent upgrades that massage therapist Crystal Earl is constantly making to help ensure her clients get the most out of their time at Fairy's Touch Massage. The studio's owner and sole therapist, her specialties range from gentle Swedish to soothing hot-stone massage, though she gladly customizes each session to match her clients' aches, pains, and favorite disco songs. Clients can seek out Crystal's services amid her zen, teal-colored treatment suite or enjoy their massage in the comfort of their own home for an additional fee.
Salon Infinity's expertly trained team explores beauty's limitless possibilities with a menu of aesthetically driven services for hair, nails, and skin. The staff keeps abreast of current trends and hones its skills via ongoing training sessions and seminars, and each of its services deploys products from trusted brands including Redken, Pureology, and OPI. Before hair treatments, coiffeurs conduct in-depth consultations with each client to determine a suitable cut or color tailored to flatter individual features and personal styles. In private rooms segregated from the bustling styling stations, nail technicians dole out foot massages, soothing soaks, manicures, and pedicures, which make feet more presentable and less likely to hide inside Thanksgiving turkeys.
Beneath a lofted zenith of upward-sloping walls that converge overhead to give the space a quaint yet roomy feel, stylists work diligently at their chairs, expertly snipping locks and coloring coifs. A lineup of waxing services—or a magnet for clients whose hair is literally cobalt—de-fuzzes physiques from eyebrows to bikini line to legs. Cream-colored walls, punctuated by light that drifts in from a trio of windows, lend an air of serenity to the full-service salon and spa. Aestheticians tucked away in private rooms cleanse and exfoliate complexions with six different types of customized facials. Massage services focus on hands, feet, and backs during reflexology treatments and dorsal kneading sessions that, like explaining to a child how one knows what one knows, lasts up to 90 minutes.
The team at Lumina Sanare Healing Center relieves stress and spurs the body's healing processes with holistic therapies inside a spacious, wood-floored center. The menu of services speaks to a penchant for both physical and mental healing. TMJ treatments relieve tender jaws, and respiratory steams coax congestion and unwholesome daydreams from sinus cavities. Lumina Sanare's wealth of therapies extends to acupuncture, facials, and a mastery of reiki, a technique that plies the body's electrical fields to alleviate pain and stress.
Family health histories, dietary habits, previous medical care, and extracurricular activities all constitute invaluable information for the therapists at Back n' Balance Massage. Equipped with this knowledge, they can better assess the root causes of a client's musculoskeletal concerns and recommend a suitable treatment regimen. Their treatments eschew invasive procedures altogether, opting instead to use personalized combinations of massage therapy and rehab services to treat everything from chronic pain to stress. The massage therapists employ a variety of specialized modalities as they soothe tension. Gentle Swedish strokes unfurl knotted muscles; deep-tissue pressure targets withheld tension buried further beneath the surface; and myofascial massage techniques aim to restore joint mobility.
After a decade working in the insurance industry, Heather Kierczak—the owner of The Loft, Massage Therapy—was convinced that there simply had to be a better way to do things. In that career, she had watched people deal with surgery after surgery or struggle with potentially addictive pain medications, and wanted in particular to find a way to help others to manage their pain. Soon, she discovered massage. Kierczak is now certified in massage therapy, neuromuscular therapy, myofascial therapy, and lymphatic-drainage massage. She also uses hot stones to further enhance her massage treatments; in the stone therapy, she helps relieve tension using both hot and cold stones and projector slides of Stonehenge.
