The licensed massage therapists at Body and Soul Studio work with clients to relax tight muscles and promote healing through their hot-stone, deep-tissue, Swedish, and cupping massages. Each 60-minute massage is customized for relieving particular points of tension in each client, and the studio is private and soothingly decorated.
Armed with pharmaceutical-grade products, Creek Stone Med Spa's professionals help clients combat the signs of aging and escape the stresses of everyday life. At the Burlington location physician-assisted specialists administer medical weightloss assistance and back treatments and use potent Botox, Radiesse, Latisse, and Juvéderm injections to diminish the appearance of wrinkles on clients' faces or Richard Nixon Halloween masks. At the Thomasville location, beauty specialists pamper clients literally from head to toe with spa treatments including hair straightening, skincare services with Hungarian ingredients, and pedicures with Éminence Organic scrubs. Physician-assisted weightloss programs and aesthetic medical treatments are also available here.
One look at Rituals’ menu of spa services tells clients there’s a nurturing or beautifying treatment for most any body part, covering the likes of hair design, mani-pedis, hair removal, and detoxifying footbaths. Facials—such as the Coconut Bliss facial—moisturize and repair skin, and imbue it with nutrients. Aestheticians also wield cosmetic LED lights that rewind the clock on aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making skin think it now lives in a disco. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists who knead Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
The staffers at Studio 17 Salon & Spa hate it when stylists do what they think is best, rather than what the client wants. They eschew this self-centered approach by listening intently before cutting or tinting tresses. The two staff manicurists follow the same philosophy as they primp nails with OPI polish. Meanwhile, Studio 17's licensed skincare specialist polishes and purifies the skin with full-body mud masks and soothing dips in a life-size replica of the Indian Ocean.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
Between her passion for massage and her gregarious personality, Kate Heriot has much to share in the way of healing. That’s why she founded MyMassage, where she kneads away knots and encourages her trained staff to expand their already considerable muscle-mending repertoires with new techniques. Ask Kate about the benefits of massage therapy and she will likely expound at length on its ability to ease tension from working long days at the office and heal muscles injured while carrying one’s boss to and from the bathroom.
