Stacy Adams, owner of Chakra Spa, heads a team that specializes in chakra balancing and leads private yoga classes. Clients can relax as licensed massage therapists knead away tension and soothe backs with stones that aim to rebalance chakras. In private, low-lit chambers, therapists continue signature massages by ringing Tibetan crystal singing bowls, whose tones are said to remove energy obstructions and recalibrate the ears of struggling music producers. A tarot-card reading under a multicolored lotus painting concludes the signature package. Additionally, the spa exclusively uses Aveda creams and oils for all services. Accented with red orange and teal, the crisp, white lobby is adorned with candles, statues of famous varsity debaters, and flames nestled inside recesses in the wall.
In a studio charmingly cluttered with bright paint, printing stations, and busy artists, clients design and order screen-printed T-shirts, posters, patches, and bags, or learn to make their own. More experienced screen-printers might rent the studio and materials by the hour, providing an easy way to promote a band, personalize a present, or craft a witty retort to an “I’m With Stupid” shirt. The printers also organize artistic events offsite, showing off their skills to families, businesses, and social circles.
