Although Claudia Sosulski's memories of lavender fields in France inspired her latest spa, Lavender Garden Day Spa—as reported by MLive—it has been her more than seven years as a massage therapist that inspired her to offer a range of healing spa services. This includes deep-cleansing facials with Elina Organics, handmade skincare products, infrared sauna sessions to naturally detoxify bodies, and custom massage sessions in an ashiatsu therapy room.
From within Brenda Bennett Salon, stylist Mindy Premo imparts style and manageability to manes. She kicks off appointments by determining a cut or hue that works best with clients’ features or skin tone before styling hair into their desired look. Mindy also pulls from three levels of smoothing treatments to instantly reduce frizz, boost shine, and subdue curls across all hair types.
Since 1994, ChrisAnn Truckey has kept her salon free of synthetic odors by relying on a natural approach to nailcare and an arsenal of specialized tools. One such tool grooms and shapes toe-talons during the pedicure, smoothing out any keratin aberrations and extracting feet from the painful concrete shoes they've been wearing since the day they accidentally stepped into a freshly-poured sidewalk. ChrisAnn also takes care of calluses and assuages the aches and cramps that result from athletic activity, high heels, and ill-conceived attempts to combine the two. Finally, a leg exfoliation whisks dead skins cells off your skele-stilts, leaving gams a-gleam.
Inspiring Hands helps battered bodies return to tip-top shape with a range of wellness services, such as hot-stone massages, ashiatsu foot therapy, and detoxification. The pomegranate pampering treatment harnesses the therapeutic power of its namesake fruit, a superfood that helps increase the body's natural skin-protecting antioxidant glutathione, for a luscious 60 minutes of warm, moisturizing skin rehabilitation. Dehydrated dermises start their healing with a deep exfoliation that scrubs away lollygagging dead cells and unveils a cleaner, fresher layer of skin. The body's natural envelope is then enveloped in a lush hydrating wrap, which provides intense hydration through a rich balm made from wheat germ, shea butter, and avocado that, like the heart of a lonely snowman, instantly melts when it touches skin.
