Board-certified in family medicine, Dr. Faiz Shareef believes good health requires a multidisciplinary approach that addresses physical and emotional needs. To create an environment that caters to all aspects of holistic well-being, he assembled staff members who specialize in everything from aesthetics and massage to fitness and weight loss. The technicians refine skin tone and texture with laser treatments, and the fitness instructors bolster confidence while leading core-toning and limb-lengthening yoga, Pilates, and Zumba classes. Bodywork services, such as therapeutic massage and acupuncture, target the chronic aches and pains caused by daily stress or nightly caber-toss competitions, and the center?s weight-loss plans motivate patients to live healthier lifestyles.
Over the past two centuries, the historic town of Hobbard has stayed current without losing any of its small town charms. The Professional Edge salon is no exception. Through the classic hair studio's period storefront, wood accents and cabinetry offer an old-time feel, while skilled stylists maintain hair modernity with Redken brand products. Clients may also retreat to a private room for the Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure of licensed massage therapist Jennifer Ivezic.
Artiste' Organic Salon and Spa promotes an art-inspired atmosphere complete with warm lighting, art-covered walls, and draped cloth that together create a welcoming space. In private treatment rooms, amid a water fountain, music, and aromatherapy, guests can relax with services that include haircare, nailcare, and skincare fueled by organic beauty products.
Shaded by the trees towering nearby, WaterBird Spa exudes the inviting charm of a cozy cottage space. This warm, welcoming environment houses a staff with more than two decades of experience attending to clients' needs. During massages, therapists alleviate pent-up tension using Swedish techniques or deep-tissue pressure, and can transform appointments into even more indulgent experiences with the addition of hot stones, warm bamboo, or infused oils. Meanwhile, nail techs keep nails looking tidy with manicures and pedicures, and estheticians rejuvenate clients physically and mentally with coffee-infused body scrubs and specialized facials that involve organic honey, warm towels, and gentle acupressure.
It should come as no surprise that a place called Velvet Skin Spa specializes in skincare, but it also offers a range of body treatments to accompany its renowned facials. Owner Suzanne Barr-Allamong does everything she can to make the Michigan City spa a one-stop beauty destination, whether she's treating teen and adult acne with facials or soothing tension with a deep-tissue massage. The spa's hair-removal treatments include traditional bikini waxes as well as eyebrow waxes that can transform brows into elegant arches or upside down U's, depending on your preferred nomenclature. A second location in Chesterton focuses exclusively on waxing services.
Keep It Young’s professional, certified aestheticians act as comfort concierges, summoning their experience and a philosophy of treating spa services as a craft to curate custom, soothing experiences for every client. Making good on the spa’s name, they strip away signs of aging with a comprehensive roster of services, eliminating age-inducing stress with massage, and buffing wrinkles with medical-grade facials, microdermabrasion, and resurfacing treatments. In addition to cleansing skin, they help keep epidermises smooth through hair-removal treatments that uproot fuzz with techniques such as body sugaring, electrolysis, and waxing. Whether returning smoother complexions to faces with IPL acne-clearing treatments, or harvesting wax to make homemade vinyl records during ear candling, the meticulous pamper practitioners aim to keep clients relaxed.
