Skewed chakras can settle back into place at Cora Bella's Aveda Salon & Spa, where chakra-balancing Aveda services pamper both muscles and nails. Deep-tissue and foot reflexology work augment meditative prompts during a chakra-balancing massage, whereas focused kneads and soothing aromas accompany the chakra-themed hand and foot treatments. These calming offerings, in addition to other styles such as the fusion stone massage, strive to restore serenity in body and thought.
Meanwhile, junior and senior stylists in the salon reshape 'dos into sleek or voluminous arrangements. They oversee perms, applications of color, and careful trims, as well as nourishing add-ons of botanical Aveda hair and scalp therapies.
Licensed massage therapist R. Scott Walker believes that a massage clinic should never be a revolving-door operation. That’s why he takes an individualized approach through open communication and by customizing bodywork with indulgences such as hot towels, essential oils, and aromatherapy. The pressure level is also tailored to the client’s ailment, whether it is a migraine from stress or a rotator-cuff problem from relentless guitar windmilling.
