Positive Therapeutic Touch views massage as a means to bolster mobility, relieve pain, and improve mood through the release of endorphins. In other words, they believe that bodywork is beneficial to both the mind and the body. From headaches and anxiety to back injuries and flexibility issues, the list of benefits testifies to this, and the therapists combat these ailments with customized Swedish, trigger-point, and hot-stone massages. Regardless of which massage clients choose, they’ll find themselves sprawled out on a table in a private massage room. An eye mask and heated back pad will keep them cozy while aromatherapy oils tickle their sense of smell and remind them of relaxing times spent lying on a beach or cuddled up inside of a scented candle.
The technicians at Wellness Therapy proffer holistic alternatives to invasive procedures, performing a trio of massage modalities to abate aches and unwind knots. Their menu includes Swedish massages—which employ gliding, kneading, and cross-fiber friction to uncoil knots—and deep-tissue massages, which use the same techniques to target lower-lying tissue. They also offer hot-stone massages, which can eradicate tension or lessen pain from a muscle-related injury, and facials that cleanse while moisturizing skin.
Though La'Sonia Nicole Salon and Spa is a new establishment, the center's technicians use time-tested treatments to beautify their clients. Massage therapists rely on the traditional techniques of Swedish massage, which features long, flowing strokes that ease muscle aches and release tension. During a classic European facial, aestheticians deeply cleanse skin to brighten and smooth the complexion, and a spa pedicure leaves digits more polished than a dog that’s been taught to bark with a British accent.
Rather than merely treating symptoms of maladies in the body as they arise, Wellness Beginnings aims to heal the whole person, promoting long-term well-being. Treatments include gentle facials and scrubs, which exfoliate and cleanse the skin with natural aromatics, coconut, and sugars. Wellness Beginnings also offers take-home lotions and supplements to help soothe both body and mind.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
Window decals of traditional barbershop poles signal the entrance to Kisner’s Barber Salon, where licensed and certified hairstylists cut, color, and perm hair seven days a week. After sitting down for an initial consultation, men, women, and children can add new dimensions to their looks with a sleek cut and style. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp, however. Nourishing facials infuse skin with essential moisturizers and professional massages melt away stress with gentle strokes. Thankfully, none of that stress will come from being dissatisfied with one’s haircut; clients may return within two days for an alteration or a confidence-boosting compliment, both free of charge.
