A certified practitioner of reflexology and hypnotherapy, Michelle R. Chesney heals both bodies and minds. During reflexology sessions, she massages hands and feet to stimulate the body’s internal healing mechanisms. This process not only helps regulate energy flow and circulation, it also delivers the benefits of a full body massage without requiring the guest to disrobe or even remove their chain mail. Hypnotherapy sessions, meanwhile put clients into a state of deep relaxation, a process that can help them to overcome bad habits such as smoking or overeating.
With services for men, women, and children, the beauty experts at Pure Platinum Salon use hair as a canvas to bring each client's fashion sense and personality into physical form. After consultations, they grab hold of scissors to snip split ends and sculpt looks that would make Chia Pet–mannequins crumble with envy. The stylists can also hone in on damaged hair and correct color or strengthen strands. Unlike lazy portrait painters, the team doesn't stop at the head; they can wax away unwanted body fuzz and spray skin with a golden tan so clients are ready for weddings or everyday events.
Rio Massage & Brazilian Waxing's services are simple: they specialize in banishing muscle tension with massages, and unwanted body hair with waxing. Massage therapists are well versed in deep-tissue, medical, and sports massage techniques and apply them to uproot stress buried in clients' shoulders, backs, and wishbones. Waxing treatments help clients showcase hairless bikini zones, bare underarms, and smooth legs.
Sakora Salon & Day Spa carefully cleanses hair with the plants, flowers, and other natural ingredients hiding deep inside Aveda products. After conferring with customers to determine the perfect plan of action, the expert stylists treat weary necks and scalps to a massage, wash hair, and blow-dry strands, then start sculpting and styling each lock to breathe new life into the empty shell of an old hairdo. Sakora's bold red and pale yellow walls create a pleasant contrast that inspires hair to gracefully accept its new style, and the salon's interior presentation of tropical plants, candles, and sleek furniture keeps jittery follicles calm throughout the haircare procedure.
Krave Salon's style swamis tend to hair, skin, and nails with a bevy of beautifying services. Permanent makeup artist and salon co-owner Lisa Brown nestles drops of natural vegetable pigment between individual lashes to define eyelids with soft, natural-looking color and authoritative dictionary entries during a cosmetic-tattoo procedure. Alternatively, the Five Berry Pigment Control peel can help reduce discoloration with a cocktail of all-natural extracts, such as cranberry, raspberry, and blueberry, whereas the Vitamin A Professional Power peel helps encourage collagen production and cell renewal. Finally, a bikini wax gets pelvises ready for swimsuit season, much the way a watch wax prepares wrists to don revealing string Rolexes.
Even before he became a chiropractor, Dr. Robin Roberts understood the power of a good adjustment. He played on a minor league baseball team, and before and after every game, he observed the team chiropractor keeping players healthy enough to hustle for ground balls, swat dingers, and run away from broken windows. It was enough that, once he hung up his glove, he decided to become a chiropractor himself.
Since 2003, Dr. Roberts has been administering his hands-on chiropractic techniques to professional baseball players, hockey players, and patients suffering from aches and chronic pain. Eschewing every ounce of conventional medication and invasive techniques, his non-invasive methods trigger the body's own self-healing resources to correct ailments ranging from chronic pain to migraines.
