Genesis owner Jill Talbot has been busy the last few years. She's attended two Redken symposiums in Las Vegas, bareMinerals training in San Francisco, three Discover shows in St. Louis, and a DevaCurl cutting class in New York City. All this training, and she still considers herself a student.
Continuing education is a huge priority for Jill and her Genesis staff, and it shows in their expertise. Clients can request a sharp scissor cut, custom color, or sleek tapered highlights to flatter their individual features. The salon also offers other beautifying services, such as nailcare and specialty waxes.
Like a professor knowledgeable on tulip mania, alien black oil, and a myriad of seemingly esoteric subjects, Massage Envy's licensed body therapists ably converse with the gamut of muscle ailments. They'll unravel tense coils of accumulated inner-stress through a perfectly catered treatment for individual clients' needs that may include various styles and techniques. Swedish massages offer gentle rubbing for muscular soothing and improved circulation, while deep tissue focuses specifically on untying the body's Gordian knots and releasing chronic tension. A prenatal massage is ideal for expecting mothers who could use a little relief from carrying another person inside them, and a sports massage provides tension relief and injury prevention for an athlete's body.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Tanea Davis refuses to stay complacent as a nationally certified massage therapist, trained energy healer, and detoxification specialist. She seeks out new massage modalities so that she can adjust her service menu regularly to include fresh techniques such as reiki healing and slimming body wraps. Instead of focusing on the painful spots alone, Tanea listens to her patients to unearth the causes of problems and provide long-term relief and full-body relaxation.
In 2010 and 2011, St. Louis Magazine crowned The Face and The Body the city’s Best Salon and Spa. KSDK Channel 5 also found the spa entrancing, and its profile highlights the flagship location’s Oasis room, calming waterfall, and a crackling fireplace where stressed guests can burn incriminating documents. Potted plants join the scene at all of the spa locations, and visitors lounge among them while wearing plush robes and sipping complimentary designer teas, coffee, or wine.
These amenities set the stage for classic spa treatments such as a massage with heated and ice-cooled river stones or a seaweed body wrap. Incorporating the tranquil atmosphere of the spa, the salon transforms appearances with designer cuts and Platinum Seamless hair extensions as well as nail services that draw on hot stones, paraffin treatments, and essential oils.
