Versed in a number of massage styles, licensed massage practitioner and Essential Body Wellness owner Leah Wendel-Tarabochia carefully tailors each treatment to ensure her clients receive the most relaxing and revitalizing massage possible. Upon entering her tranquil studio, guests can decompress in a designated quiet room before they’re led to treatment rooms outfitted with heated massage tables dressed in ultra-soft sheets. There, they’re lulled into deep relaxation as Leah goes to work promoting better circulation with gliding Swedish massage strokes or using water-treated hot stones to melt tension and keep clients from accidentally giving friends the cold shoulder. Beyond general relaxation and minor pain relief, Leah also treats sports- and work-related injuries, as well as neuromuscular and musculoskeletal dysfunctions, with her rehabilitation services.
The seasoned staffers at Noble Hair and Nails put their more than two decades of beauty experience to use revamping 'dos with scissors and coloring products, removing unwanted hair with wax, and beautifying nails with coats of OPI and China Glaze gel polishes. As an added flourish, nail techs can also hand paint intricate designs on each digit, such as animal prints or favorite Euclidean algorithms. They also carry this attention to detail over into pedicure services, which they perform at the foot of one of three leather thrones or one child-size chair. In addition to hosting youngsters having a spa day with their moms, this mini-pedicure chair—adorned with a vibrant bear design and pink pedicure bowl—adds a burst of color to the salon's black-and-tan décor.
