Nolas Salon boasts seasoned stylists who sculpt and maintain head hedges with an array of salon services. Coif curation begins with a thorough sudsing and scalp massage before shear-wielding artists trim, sculpt, and blow-dry hairscapes. A complimentary glass of wine can enhance the haircut experience, just as a beer improves the lawn-mowing experience.
At Attitudes Salon, licensed stylists strive to remain true to their name by creating a positive atmosphere filled with positive, customer-focused attitudes. Using products such as All-Nutrient organic hair-color, they tint heads with partial or full highlights. Additionally, they deftly cut and style new hairdos, in additional to offering keratin treatments and hair removal.
Dr. Patricia Campbell comes from a background of family practice, but it was her interest in beauty that led her to open Springhall Aesthetics in 2011. As medical director, she oversees a menu of minimally invasive body-contouring and skin-renewal services that help clients to fight the signs of aging. Chemical peels, injectable fillers, and laser treatments shoo away wrinkles, and iS Clinical cosmeceutical products leave complexions more subtly radiant than a jar of comets. The clinic's UltraPlus laser hair-removal system not only blasts away unwanted follicles but also assaults spider veins and other colored epidermal imperfections. Upon entering Springhall Aesthetics' charming brick façade, guests stumble into a cozy waiting room anchored by polished hardwood floors. Clients can curl up in one of the lobby's cushy chairs or feed a bag of goldfish to one of the egrets in the serene wall art.
At New Holland Recreation Center, guests pursue health goals inside a modern 8,000-square-foot fitness center while enjoying the benefits of social interaction. Treadmills, ellipticals, and cycling equipment pump legs as fast as a cheetah churning butter, and a 16-piece circuit-training area tones and tightens muscles. Aqueous athletes can stretch caudal fins in a 25-yard pool with lap and leisure divisions. Bubble jets, a water slide, and mushroom fountain foster water play and quests for kidnapped princesses, and four lap lanes sculpt lean legs in an 83-degree aquatic environment. Enjoy competitive play and team-building on the rubber-floored gymnasium inlayed with boundaries for volleyball, basketball, and kangaroo court. Inside the game room, guests shoot pool, play ping-pong, and gesticulate wildly at a Nintendo Wii as children safely romp within the Tot Spot for up to two hours (not included with this Groupon; additional $2 for first child, $1 for each additional child).
Helmed by resident physician Dr. Patricia Riddle, Oasis Medspa & Wellness combines medical skincare treatments with the comforts of an upscale spa. Medical services range from dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Botox, to laser procedures, such as hair removal, spider-vein reduction, and skin resurfacing. Spa services, meanwhile, nurture and invigorate surfaces via chemical peels and facials. Relaxing spa packages pair massages with other soothing treatments, such as reflexology, facials, and whale serenades.
When a patient complains about lower-back pain, Doctor of Chiropractic H. Austin Murray launches an investigation. According to his newsletter, he begins by evaluating the patient's posture and gait. If patients have an antalgic lean—evidenced by a kink in the spine—they might have a disc injury or mismatched shoes. But if they walk just fine, he proceeds to the next point of inspection, continuing until he locates the origin of pain. Once he locates it, he resolves it with chiropractic techniques.
Dr. Murray primarily adjusts spines with his hands but sometimes adds technologies, such as the Impulse iQ adjusting instrument, to deliver extremely precise results. To enhance each patient's overall wellness, Dr. Murray directs patients to Michael Clark, a certified master of medical massage. During bodywork sessions, Clark communicates with patients so that every touch feels curative and comfortable. As his hands glide across backs he infuses skin with Biotone Dual Purpose massage cream, a nongreasy product that reduces friction.
