Founder and licensed therapist Kristen M. Wood soothes distressed musculature with seven different modalities of massage, from smooth Swedish strokes to the localized finger pressures of shiatsu bodywork. The clinic's specially designed massage table leaves backs optimally exposed to the therapist’s 10-fingered artistry, and hot-stone massages ease muscular tension and warm insides faster than a bowl of chicken-noodle lava. Kristen culls inspiration from ancient China and modern science alike to design techniques that bolster cells’ oxygen supplies, relieve soreness, and alleviate stiff joints.

Candy Kids Spa combines things that kids love—including more than 100 types of candy, candy-flavored facial masks, a heaping helping of personalized attention, and fun activities such as karaoke—into one memorable experience. It should come as no surprise that the company's formula is a successful one, since it was, in fact, inspired by a 6-year-old. As she told Elizabeth Carey in a 2010 Buffalo Business First feature, owner Ayanna Williams came up with the concept when her daughter requested her own special treatment after seeing the pampering going on at a traditional spa.

Williams and her daughter decided to retrieve some frosting out of the cabinet and had a good time creating their very own tasty "facial." Williams's daughter told her friends at school about it, and soon Williams started traveling to people's homes for mobile parties. She then bought a storefront on Niagara Falls Boulevard, gutting the building herself and painting the walls in bright rainbow colors. Williams eventually expanded the business to include two more locations in New York state and is in the process of creating franchises elsewhere.

The innovative spa, which has been featured on WKBW Channel 7 News, offers services ranging from candy-colored mani-pedis to a spa factory where kids can make their own lip gloss and candy-scented perfume. They also host parties to celebrate a birthday or a long-awaited truce in a war over which sister gets to sleep on the top bunk.

Shanthy Jayakumar prescribed many medicines during the nine years she worked as a medical consultant for Mother Teresa Medicare in Sri Lanka, but you'd be hard pressed to find any of them in a typical drugstore. That's because her prescriptions consist of herbs, holistic therapies, and even certain types of food. According to Shanthy, many patients initially come to Harisa Massage Therapy & Ayurvedic Wellness Center for Western-style massages or organic facials, but return for the Ayurvedic medicine that she introduces to them.

Treatments such as herbal nasal cleansing absolve the body of physical impurities, and relaxing Shirodhara head massages quiet inner monologues or AM radio signals as a slow drizzle of heated oil drips onto the forehead. Panchakarma therapy cleanses the three Ayurvedic systems that govern the body by combining healing massage therapy with internal cleansing induced by carefully selected herbs.

At EuroSpa, founder Veronika Moran, who was trained at both an aesthetics school and dermatology school in Hungary, draws upon 20 years of experience to beautify patrons with spa services that find her sprinkling clients with Éminence Organic products. The all-natural ingredients in this skincare line from Hungary are handpicked and mixed in small batches and combined with thermal hot-spring water. Veronika chose this line in order to give her clients a more upscale spa experience without requiring the staff to wear tuxedos.

This devotion to luxury is seen the spa's facials, which lavish skin with Hungarian moor mud and blueberry peels, body wraps, which cocoon guests in mint or chocolate, and makeup applications, which transform faces with Youngblood mineral cosmetics. It's also evident in the high-tech far-infrared sauna and the private rooms for mani-pedis.

Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services—though at different scales—as well as men’s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
