Bodhi Holistic Spa houses a squadron of licensed massage therapists who strive to knead woebegone bodies back to health with a multicultural variety of techniques. During the therapeutic massage, a dexterous set of digits rubs soothing oils up and down the entire body, working out knotty discomfort and aiming to increase blood and lymph flow from head to toe. The infrared emitters in the subsequent sauna session radiate their heat directly into refreshed guests, eliminating the need for steam or lathering one’s body in tabasco sauce. Thirty minutes in the heat box can help to flush toxins and relax muscles for a full-throttle rejuvenation.
An’tyrice Salon and Spa may not be situated in New York City, but its multicultural hair services save many clients the trip into the Big Apple. Nimble-handed stylists weave virgin-hair extensions into hairlines, brush on dimensional highlights, and clip modern cuts. The salon also welcomes clients in search of airbrush makeup applications, spray tans, facials, and massages.
When Pete and Dawn Padilla opened A Cut From Above, they brought Paul Mitchell. Lots of it. Low-ammonia hair-color with a beeswax base, conditioning products made with wild ginger, and Paul Mitchell's professional shampoos, conditioners, and other coif elixirs fill the tool-chests of the salon's staff—chests that were taken from very stylish pirates. With these products, they tend to the locks of clients with great skill. Outside the realm of the scalp, a massage therapist with three decades of experience un-knots muscles, a nail technician wrangles cuticles, and an ear-piercing specialist makes the phenomenon of listening both functional and fashionable.
Owner Jacqueline and her staff of estheticians slather organic products onto clients’ faces during facials to help alleviate rosacea, sop up excess oil, or hydrate dry patches. They also scrub away dead skin cells on bodies with raw sugar or extra-fine sandpaper, and bestow eyelashes with extra length using semi-permanent lash extensions.
Amy Kowal uses her talents to help clients reach their full beauty potential. As a trained skincare therapist, Amy works to restore youthful appearances with a variety of facials and chemical peels. She also harnesses the power of TriPollar radio frequency to re-engage the body's production of collagen , tighten skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, cellulite and stretch marks, melt fat, and clear up acne and acne scarring. Free consultations are available.
In addition to being a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians Network, Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has been featured in many forms of media, hosts his own cosmetic-surgery radio show, and won Long Island Press' Best of Long Island 2010 Cosmetic Surgeon award. Dr. Greenberg performs a consultation with each patient before using his highly specific training to administer tiny, muscle-relaxing injections into wrinkle-causing areas while singing a lullaby in a rich baritone. The appointment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the injection site. Botox treatments smooth moderate wrinkles and prevent further depth in wrinkling, leaving skin as sleek as a bobsled track doused in canola oil. Improvement may be observed within a few days, and results can last up to four months. Discomfort from the Botox treatment is minimal; the sensation could be likened to a pinprick or a momentary flashback to one's haircut in the '80s.
