Some drivers may prefer to impress onlookers with a shiny, reflective finish on their car. Others may opt to treat their carpool passengers or favorite morning-radio hosts to freshly laundered interiors. Knowing that motorists have different priorities, Wax Man Industries augments whole-car details with a full spectrum of customized services, which allow drivers to assemble a detail tailored to their own comfort and cosmetic preferences.
With the help of nanotechnology products, including high-gloss waxes and sanitizing shampoos, the detailers hone in on smeared exteriors, stained upholstery, and greasy engines to transform every car their sponges touch into a vehicle that looks like it escaped from a Ferrari daycare. Included in the roster of detail services are more-involved restoration techniques, including buffing, sanding, and oxidation treatments performed with a 24-hour turnaround and a money-back guarantee in case clients aren't satisfied. In addition to four-wheeled vehicles, the technicians also revamp boats, airplanes, trailers, and motorcycles to ensure exteriors gleam on the sea, in the air, and through action-movie stunts through the air into the sea.
With 15 years of experience, the techs at Wax Man Industries have also extended their cleaning know-how into homes in the form of carpet cleaning powered by hot-water-extraction techniques. They pore over carpets with double-pass cleaning strokes and double-drying strokes that shorten the dry time overall. Even though they remorselessly nix deep-seated stains and blotches, their cleaning techniques are hypoallergenic and remain safe for kids and pets alike.
Certified massage therapist Erin Warfield Shaffer expresses her belief in holistic approaches to wellness by treating bodies to a detoxifying combination of hands, herbs, and hydrotherapy. Shaffer's four massages range from hot-stone techniques that melt tension in backs to reflexology methods that manipulate the feet in an effort to relieve pain in the rest of the body. She also cleanses bodies with such detoxification rituals as the acupoint session, a massage-like treatment that causes key points in the body to absorb healthy herbs so that clients don't have to sleep on a pile of herb-crusted halibut. The center also concocts custom facials and peels that nourish the skin with hydrotherapy, botanicals rich in Vitamin C, and other organic ingredients.
Tova Galgut of Tova?s Beautique & Wellness Center enlists her triple-threat credentials as a massage therapist, aesthetician, and electrologist to heal and beautify clients from the inside out. The tissue mender uses a slew of massage modalities, from deep-tissue kneads to hand-and-foot reflexology, to create custom massage recipes that fit each of her client?s needs. As an aesthetician, Tova rejuvenates visages with cleansing European facials and acne treatments designed specifically for teenage skin. The beauty purveyor also attacks unwanted fuzz with swift face and body waxings or suggests a more permanent solution in the form of electrolysis, which permanently wards off growing hair no matter the phase of the moon.
Norma Brinker could be called a natural. Starting at a very young age, she honed her skills painting for the fun of it. Today, she brings a wealth of experience and a bag of ideas to her studio, Noric Art & Wellness, where she inspires amateur artists with her passion for painting. During Friday night's BYOB classes, florid brush strokes alternate with delicate sips while Norma instructs students on painting select works of art that she has created and paintings of famous artists on blank canvases. When not teaching art classes, Norma puts her skills as a licensed massage therapist to work by doling out massages, cupping treatments, and reflexology.
At Love Your Skin By Hope, aesthetician Hope Acuna personalizes each skincare service with carefully selected products.
