Wild Roots Salon offers staple beauty services such as hair coloring and conditioning, but with an organic bent. The salon's team uses organic products when highlighting and smoothing hair, leaving strands flush with color and healthier than if they were dunked in house paint. Nails also receive their share of pampering with mani-pedis, shellac polish, and detoxifying soaks.
Though Melissa Glancy first became a master stylist in 1987, she has taken refresher courses and recertified herself as recently as 2009 to stay up-to-date with newer hair trends. Specializing in color treatments, she cossets her clients in Expectations Hair Salon’s spacious confines, where they can relax in a plush chair by the fireplace and take in the soothing earth tones that decorate the room.
While massage is an indulgent experience, it can also be a regular part of routine wellness care. To provide comprehensive care and meet specific needs, Healing Touch performs more than 10 modalities of massage. That includes everything from the deeply relaxing Swedish massage to a chronic pain reduction treatment. Their team is also accomplished at pregnancy massage and injury treatments.
For more than two decades, licensed massage therapist Genevieve has helped her clients battle stress and discomfort with a wide range of therapeutic massage modalities. Hot-stone, deep-tissue, relaxation, and chakra-balancing massages move patrons toward increased health and calm, and massages designed for pregnant women or the elderly tend to more specific woes.
After enduring a year of unemployment, Mark Allen faced fear and uncertainty. He walked away from a car crash as a teenager, but on reaching his 30s, the accident's effects—chronic headaches, plus a shoulder problem—continued intensifying to the point where he could no longer work. Unsure of what to do, he visited a chiropractor, and, in a few weeks, his injuries had diminished. Convinced that chiropractic treatments had changed his life, Mark enrolled at Logan College of Chiropractic, graduated with honors in 1986, and opened Plus Care Chiropractic & Wellness Center soon after.
Today, Doctor of Chiropractic Allen and his partner, Dr. April Simmons, work with a team of massage therapists to free patients of musculoskeletal maladies while also educating them on whole-body well-being. At each client's first appointment, the physicians conduct an in-depth consultation covering present and past health concerns, followed by a physical examination including a battery of tests. After analyzing the results, Plus Care's team recommends integrated-care regimens, which may include chiropractic adjustments using equipment such as a Thompson table. Further treatments can range from massage and acupuncture to guidance on how to infuse everyday meals with helium.
The Salon's stylists clip and arrange hair with an expert eye while aestheticians rejuvenate clients' skin and perform a host of salon services. To keep skin clear and smooth, staff members use dermatologist-recommended Jane Iredale makeup and combat cellulite with FDA-approved VelaShape treatments. The Salon also hosts boudoir and retro-inspired pinup photo shoots, taking charge of lighting, makeup, and photography so ladies can indulge their glamorous side without having to time-travel into Lauren Bacall's dressing room.
