Divine Skin Care's licensed aesthetician, Debby Farley, has 30 years of industry experience, which she calls upon when administering chemical peels, facials, and skincare treatments that combat everything from acne to signs of aging. Facials bolster clients' complexions with nourishing blends of vitamins and hydrating treatments, and microdermabrasion treatments help stimulate collagen production and reduce wrinkles.
Despite its name, The Man Cave Barber Shop’s brick façade and spinning barber pole create an immediate image of a traditional barbershop. The menu offers traditional barbershop services such as beard and moustache trims, facial shaves, and line-ups.
Madeline, better known as Maddy around The Skin Renewal Studio, has worked as a certified massage therapist and aesthetician since 1982. Her decades of experience with skin- and bodycare become obvious as she unfurls a range of beauty and massage services for clients. She uses bioelectric rejuvenation to erase fine lines and contour the skin during nonsurgical face-lifts; waxes unwanted hair from the face and body; and alleviates aches, pains, and stress with soothing deep-tissue, Swedish, and raindrop-therapy massage treatments.
Despite excelling in the world of beauty and massage therapy, Maddy has proudly declined to park herself on her laurels. Currently training to become a personal coach, she hopes to help clients cultivate a sense of inner strength by realizing what she’s known all along: beauty starts from the inside, but that doesn’t mean you should swallow makeup. Her studio even symbolizes this notion. The interior drips with aesthetic splendor in the form of hardwood floors, dark wooden tables, plush salmon-colored chairs, intricately patterned rugs, and plants and flowers.
It looks a little like a remote control standing on two short legs, but the PulStar device is designed to gently align spinal segments. At East Coast Chiropractic, Doctors April and John Kosinski rely on this device when correcting subluxations in the spine that can lead to a host of ailments. They prefer this technological method above traditional hands-on adjustments for its gentleness; the PulStar involves no harsh cracking or neck popping.
A licensed aesthetician and nail technician, owner Cris-Anne works alongside stylists and a massage therapist to attend to all of clients' indulgence needs. Certified in sugaring techniques, Cris-Anne uproots unwanted strands with an all-natural sugar paste devoid of the harsh chemicals, resins, and bumblebee dander that's found in many waxes. Stylists evict dead ends and dull colors in the salon; in the spa section, aestheticians cleanse and exfoliate faces, and expert kneaders force chronic pains to leave the body.
The certified tissue tenderizer at Saundarya draws on an array of massage methods to pamper muscles with relaxing rubdowns. During the 60-minute session, patrons will float atop a cushy massage table as the wellness wizard tailors treatments to individual needs from a hodgepodge of modalities, including Swedish, neuromuscular, and deep-tissue techniques. As traditional strokes melt tension, the therapist may apply pressure on hands and feet for reflexology relief, or festoon backs with LaStone hot and cold river stones to foster a strong connection between mind, body, and intercoastal waterways. Each massage technique works to decrease stress, improve range of motion, and boost flexibility.
Shellie Morin always loved helping people, a passion that attracted her to customer-service jobs most of her adult life. It wasn’t until 2006, after her husband suggested giving massage therapy a try, that she found her true calling. Since then, Shellie has gone on to open her own massage-therapy clinic: Sense-Sational Massage. Here, she offers her expertise in five massage techniques: Swedish, bamboo-fusion, hot-stone, fibromyalgia, and seated-chair massage. Clients can choose their massage prior to their appointments, or stop in for a quick talk with Shellie, who can help them decide based on their ailments. For example, stressed clients with tension throughout their entire body may benefit from the long and flowing Swedish massage techniques, while those with fibromyalgia—like Shellie herself—can relax with a tailored session designed to lessen flare ups and decrease overall pain.
