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.
Jessica White's bodywork knowledge spans the globe. The licensed massage therapist might draw on India's ayurvedic tradition, for instance, and provide an abhyanga or marmabhyanga massage with warm oil to relieve stress. Or perhaps White will recommend a Thai yoga massage with relaxing stretches and soothing herbs, or a Thai head treatment to ease the discomfort caused by particularly heavy hats. Still other options, such as reflexology treatments and hand and forearm massages, focus on specific parts of the body to promote all-over peace.
The menu of wraps at Perla's Beauty Center might summon images of food to your mind. That's understandable, as it lists both chocolate and pomegranate varieties. You shouldn't, however, even think about eating, licking, or fondue-dipping these decadent wraps, as delicious as they may seem. Instead, just kick back as the treatments?which also come in mud, seaweed, aloe, and mineral varieties?relax the mind and soften the skin.
Perla's isn't just about making skin look radiant, though. They also offer services for the rest of the body. Nail techs gussy up digits during manicures and pedicures, and hairstylists fashion new looks with cuts, styles, and color treatments.
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.
