At Pickerington Allvera Wellness Center, holistic services—as part of the center's mission to help each client achieve balance in their emotional, physical, and mental lives—soothe body and mind. Services range from herbal body wraps that target everything from cellulite to lax skin tone, to therapeutic massages enhanced with hot stones. Far-infrared-sauna treatments help stimulate the body’s natural detoxification process and ease muscle pains with help from penetrative heat, and foot detoxes use an ionic charge to help expel toxic waste and heavy metals, along with all the pennies heels have been hoarding in their loafers.
The official day spa and salon of the 2011 American Music Awards, J. Nicole's Day Spa and Salon calls upon its stylists' hair expertise and its technicians' skin savvy to pamper clients within a rock 'n' roll–themed lounge. The staffers, who can sometimes be seen jamming on the guitars that adorn the salon's scarlet walls, beautify heads with hair services and eyelash extensions or relax bodies with treatments such as massages and craniosacral therapy. Aestheticians also exfoliate faces with Obagi chemical peels and abrasive punk-rock drum solos.
Sunlight streams through large windows and glints off the glossy wood floor as yoga students twist and stretch next to exposed brick walls. Other guests can undergo spa treatments or massages at the hands of capable staff members. The Christian-based health hub, which welcomes visitors of all faiths, approaches wellness from a holistic perspective that considers the health of the mind, body, and spirit together. Fitness classes keep Pilates practitioners, kickboxers, and studious punching bags busy before they relax during massages and slimming body wraps.
Warm, earthy tones enhance the welcoming atmosphere at Allure Grand Salon, where hairstylists, nail techs, and a massage therapist pamper a diverse clientele. The team of eight stylists offers a wide range of services, including precision and razor cuts, vibrant highlights and multidimensional color, and sew-in weaves. For clients looking to change the texture of their hair, stylists provide smoothing keratin treatments and relaxers, as well as curl-creating perms. The team also offers twist outs, roller sets, and hot-oil treatments for natural hair. Allure's duo of nail techs treat hands and feet with mani-pedis, acrylic nails, and gel manicures complete with nail art. To round out the pampering, the salon's massage therapist calms clients with soothing aromatherapy scents and deep-tissue pressure.
Shelby Frederick, a licensed massage therapist, has a repertoire of nine massage modalities, which she uses skillfully to knead away aches and ease tension. Each of these treatments, which include Swedish and hot-stone massages, can be supplemented with paraffin dips, sugar scrubs, and other add-ons. Though most of Shelby's massages focus on relaxation, she can also work to alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, sciatica, or back pain caused by your habit of riding a pogo stick to work in the morning. To treat these conditions, she works closely with clients' doctors, chiropractors, or physical therapists to complement the medical treatment plans already in place.
Licensed aesthetician Katie Zigler believes in beautiful, healthy nails and she feels that professional skincare?and the beauty benefits that come with it?should be accessible to everyone, not a luxury afforded only by rich women and Monopoly men. Her facials and peels are priced with the intention that they be scheduled regularly to keep conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and dryness in check. She also offers waxing treatments that leave faces, legs, and nether regions aerodynamically smooth, and mani-pedi services that pamper hands and feet while keeping nails clean.
