Pampering is at the heart of Becoming Mom Pregnancy Spa & Imaging Center. When the center's founder came upon 3D and 4D ultrasounds, she was searching for a way to help expectant parents bond even more deeply with their babies and therefore become more invested in fostering positive development. The technology that ended up becoming the cornerstone of her business allowed parents to see a high-definition image of their growing baby's face instead of just a fuzzy blob that only doctors and Rorschach specialists could understand. But then she went one step further. She began tending to both the emotional and physical needs of mothers-to-be by offering prenatal massages and luxurious pedicures.
While the hearts, minds, and bodies of expectant mothers may be the central focus at Becoming Mom Pregnancy Spa & Imaging Center, the spa offers an additional source of comfort?retail therapy. The Becoming Mom Boutique outfits patrons with chic maternity wear, nursing fashions, parenting essentials, and discomfort-fighting goodies such as B-Natal pops, which help ease morning sickness.
The stylists at Mitchell's Salon & Day Spa have beautified Cincinnati-area clients for the past 30 years. During that time, the staff has grown to more than 400 employees across five locations. They've also garnered several press mentions, including their most recent victory in The Knot's Best of Weddings 2013. These accolades are all possible because of the meticulous care that the salon pours into both its posh ambiance and soothing treatments. Stylists perfect 'dos with haircuts and smoothing keratin treatments, and aestheticians perform antioxidant facials, which make the skin more resilient against hazards such as environmental damage and cheek-pinching aunts.
It’s all about color at Prestige Nails & Tans, Inc.—you can give your skin a sun-kissed glow or get glossy hues for your fingernails. For the former, the salon has 12 European high-intensity tanning machines, which yield dark, natural tones that mimic a day at the beach or an apprenticeship as a campfire marshmallow.
For nail services, Prestige’s technicians utilize Tammy Taylor, OPI, and CND products. The result: perfectly manicured acrylic, Shellac, or natural nails. During European Touch spa pedicures, clients relax in Relaxor heated massage chairs while their feet indulge in a warm, soothing soak. Prestige’s nail techs can also turn their attention to children for birthday parties, which foreshadow the pampered luxury that comes with being an adult.
