The stylists and aestheticians at Metro Hair Salon and Spa call on years of training and acclaimed beauty brands such as Sadoc, Alfaparf Milano, and Shellac to refine appearances from head to toe. Inside one of three cozy studios, staffers rejuvenate damage and smooth down frizzled follicles with deep-conditioning recovery treatments and Brazilian straightening techniques. Coif artisans carefully steer scissors through strands, cutting and styling hair to frame faces or bypass highly ticklish shoulders. The spa also indulges other bodily regions by dipping hands in silky paraffin, infusing facials with renewing caviar, and unearthing tension with focused deep-tissue massages.
Leopard-spotted nails. Hair dyed an electric pink. Exfoliating facial masks. The service list at Glamorous Kitty Hair & Nail Salon extends beyond the standard cut and color. Owner Jaye Martinez whole-heartedly believes that there's glamour in everyone, which is why her team has the diverse skill set needed to handle everything from waxing to hair coloring and nailcare.
The yogis, bodywork experts, and energy healers at Light In Shining Armor Yoga and Massage Studio help put clients of all ages and abilities on the path to wellness. Their trademarked yoga style, Surya Namaskar, combines ancient teachings with modern health goals and can be modified to suit children, seniors, and those recuperating from injuries or the Andromeda Strain. Massages take a customized approach as well, with each kneading session addressing the unique physical and emotional needs of each client. Meanwhile, pranic healing and reiki sessions aim to improve well-being by harnessing the healing energy of the universe.
Lasers are a thing of the past for St. Pete Laser Like Lipo. Instead, the staff utilizes technology that helps contour fat deposits using a different form of cold, focused light energy. These noninvasive, FDA-approved procedures can promote inch loss in specific target areas, smooth away cellulite deposits, and lead to general improvements in skin tone and texture. To encourage patients to live healthier lifestyles outside of the medspa, the staff also offers nutritional consultations, detox programs, and whole-body vibration sessions.
Erin Sheehan-Edwards—the owner of A Renewed Spirit Massage and a licensed massage therapist herself—heads up a team of therapists that goes the extra mile to ensure customer comfort. The staff offers one-hour Swedish, deep-tissue, and reflexology massages as well as hydrating paraffin treatments for the hands, feet, and back that nourish skin and help it better relate to the bedside candle. Groups of four or more can enjoy blissful camaraderie with a fondue massage party, which pairs cheese or chocolate fondue with Swedish massages.
Whatever maladies clients are suffering from, the staff at Tampa Bay Bodyworks wants to help its visitors achieve their wellness goals. To do so, therapists specialize in various modalities of massage, ranging from deep tissue for tight muscles to gentle bodywork for relaxation. They also offer therapeutic rehabilitation for clients recovering from injury, zeroing in on muscular and skeletal conditions stemming from auto accidents, sports mishaps, and work-related aches.
