Odyssey Salon and Spa pampers patrons with friendly, personal care in a relaxing environment. Each member of the spa's staff has been trained in the most advanced techniques of the industry, ensuring a soothing and rejuvenating treatment based on knowledge and skill rather than unpredictable magical incantations. Customers can choose from a number of whisker-wiping waxing options, from the chin ($15) to the toes ($20) to a full bikini or facial wax ($35), helping them effectively shed their winter coats in anticipation of the summer's warm weather, beach trips, and Slip 'N Slide commutes to work. Hair havers can also focus on their head-top topiaries with a complete deep-conditioning treatment ($45). Follicular stress is alleviated with a 10-minute scalp massage complemented by a wash and style, leaving hair free of tangles, angst, and lost car keys.
The name "Arianna" has Greek and Italian roots. Those Mediterranean cultures also inform the attitude and treatments at Arianna's Retreat, which has been in business for five years. The treatments include a wide range of cosmetic procedures designed to defeat oiliness, rosacea, and other skin issues and also to relax the body. In that same vein, massage and body treatments chase away tension with everything from hot stones and sugar scrubs to wraps and moisturizers. In addition to individual treatments, there are packages designed for celebratory bridal parties, patrons looking to get away for a weekend, and couples.
Bodywise Center for Wellbeing's wide variety of soothing spa treatments focus on helping clients regain total body health while evicting noxious toxins. Experienced therapists wring out stress during the therapeutic massage, which blends Swedish and deep-tissue kneading techniques in order to alleviate pain and ready muscles for the oven. Clients looking to pamper toes can choose between two foot treatments. The Touch of Thai treatment douses foot prongs with a fusion of rice-bran oil, green tea, creamy coconut, and lemongrass, and the Stomping of the Grapes foot treatment features a wine mask that strengthens skin and brings cuticles one step closer to sommelier certification.
In a new office outfitted with advanced systems, Dr. Allan Burke of Friends Foot Care treats issues that range from unsightly toenail fungus to foot fractures. He eliminates fungal growth on and beneath the nail bed with an advanced laser system. For patients with injuries or imbalances, he reveals the exact dimensions of the feet with a digital scanner before crafting custom-tailored orthotic inserts. If local anesthetic is required for a treatment, he delivers it to the skin using a minimal-pain device that inserts pH-balanced solution.
The therapists at Body Awakening Massage and Wellness Center will work with you to determine the most beneficial techniques to use during each session. They certainly have a lot to choose from, with expertise in everything from craniosacral therapy to Japanese shiatsu massage. When they aren't soothing tension with deep-tissue pressure or relaxing hot stones, the therapists tend to the body's other needs with detoxifying wraps that infuse skin with nutrients and break down fat cells, reducing appearance of cellulite and aid in inch loss.
The massage therapists at Orthopedic Medical Massage gear their massages toward helping clients overcome pain—but that doesn't mean they're not also concerned with relaxation. Clients unwind in private treatment rooms while therapists apply light oil or lotion that smooths the delivery of rhythmic kneads and firm pressure. The practitioners always start sessions with a consultation, combing over medical history and outlining specific goals for the massage.
