Orchid Bloom Spa inspires beauty and balance with practices from Thailand and Hungary. A Thai herbal massage relieves deep-seated tension with intense stretches as the essential oils of tumeric, lemongrass, and bergamot tickle the inner senses. Treatments deploy a selection of organic Hungarian products and Thailand's Harnn products, which the spa stocks for use at home or after a hard day at the abacus. Upon arriving at the spa, clients can sip a soothing strawberry beverage while relaxing in the sunlit waiting area.
Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion. Their highly individualized treatments pull from more than 15 modalities—soothing muscles with gliding Swedish strokes, targeting the deeper connective tissue with neuromuscular therapy, and even combining salutary techniques to treat the underlying causes of aches. Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
Whenever possible, Ciana Salon and Day Spa's staff use natural products, from their Aveda hair-color products to body treatments infused with Dead Sea salts and seaweed. In the salon area, stylists consult with clients to determine the best cut and color to suit their predilections. They then coat manes with Aveda color products packed with sunflower, castor, and jojoba plant oils to protect hair while tinting it and making it indistinguishable from many gardens. The stylists also lengthen locks with Great Lengths extensions made from 100% human hair for a natural look. On the spa side of the business, aestheticians keep to the natural theme by enhancing facials with marine and plant extracts and energizing tourmaline minerals. They also offer treatments that fight the visibility of aging, such as custom-blended TCA skin peels and microdermabrasion with exfoliating microcrystals. The aestheticians further pamper clients by rendering body wraps packed with rosemary and peppermint, as well as hot- and cool-stone massages, which, hypothetically, would lose to paper massages.
The licensed stylists at Salon 121 understand the importance of looking beautiful on special occasions. They sweep hair into elegant updos for weddings and proms and beautify the skin with professional makeup applications. Wanting nothing less than perfection, stylists invite guests for trial-run updos and makeup sessions so brides-to-be can view themselves before lifting the veil. In addition to special-occasion styling, Salon 121 also offers haircuts, coloring services, keratin treatments, and perms.
Nails by Joanne draws from nearly two decades of expertise as she pampers appendages with luxurious manicures and pedicures. Jagged talons transmogrify into smooth squares or delicate ovals beneath textured files, and overgrown cuticles beat a hasty retreat before daubs of vivid polish coordinate nails with clients' outfits, moods, or fire-engine-red irises. Hot towels and stones melt away built-up stress, and rejuvenating dips in paraffin wax smooth chapped skin and hydrate thirsty pores. A 15-minute hand-and-foot massage hones in on lingering digital tension with gentle pressure and therapeutic oils that sing soothing lullabies.
