The sheer number of clients suffering from pain due to car accidents, surgeries, and other egregious ailments compelled licensed massage therapist Annie Coomes to look into craniosacral therapy. Now that it's her main specialty, she uses the massage technique to help clients find relief from chronic pain, poor sleep habits, anxiety, and even high blood pressure. Her client base also includes children and babies suffering from learning disabilities and behavioral issues.
As the exclusive team for Santa Fe fashion week, the stylists at Wavelengths Hair & Nail Salon excel at crafting provocative runway looks. Inside the salon, they apply their expertise to a range of hairstyles, from classic and timeless to trendy and modern. “I always change what I do with the season and with a trend update,” George Menzor, Wavelengths’ owner, told Modern Salon magazine. Equally important to Menzor is personalizing his services, which is why Wavelengths’ stylists take time to learn about clients’ desired looks—as well as how much time they are willing to devote to upkeep—before helping them design their style.
In addition to hair services, Wavelengths pampers clients with beauty and spa treatments, including manicures and pedicures, waxing, makeup application, and facials. Hair products from Italian beauty innovator Alfaparf are available for purchase.

Spray-tans, teeth whitening, and lash extensions round out the roster of beautifying services.
Deanne Marie's three rules of skincare—exfoliate, hydrate, and protect—inform all of her nourishing facials, each of which includes a pressure-point massage. During her six years as a medical and spa aesthetician, Deanne Marie built her own approach toward skincare that focused on nourishing skin with organic, chemical-free products while relaxing clients with lavish amenities. She customizes and reconfigures each treatment to meet her clients' skincare needs and calm neurotic pores made wary by the attentions of a professional. She also performs two types of hair-removal services—electrolysis and waxing—with the same attentiveness and care.

Additionally, the spa?s hair professionals specialize in extensions of all colors and styles, as well as updos for special occasions.
