Tonya Davis LMT developed her repertoire of gentle massage techniques during a rigorous course of study in API’s massage therapy program. Although she offers more vigorous modalities, most of her services—including Swedish massage and reflexology—focus primarily on relaxation, bringing relief from the stresses of work or unwilling cohabitation with a tarantula. Tonya performs each massage within the sage-colored walls of Amanda Jane Salon & Spa, a space that also offers hair and skincare services.
Holistic Touch's experienced massage therapists harness the pampering power of therapeutic kneads to improve the general well-being of their clients. With the one-hour aromatherapy massage, a skilled muscle molder will craft a soothing concoction of aromatherapy oils specifically blended to address each client's needs and childhood aspirations, from reenergizing, uplifting whiffs to sweet, de-stressing wafts. All massage modalities help ease bodily aches, pains, and stress and can also help muscles recover from freak time-traveling injuries.
Lokey's staff straightens spines with an in-depth knowledge of vertebrae and firm, gentle treatment. After a consultation about spinal-pain history and causes, the patient's back will be tested to check its range of motion, muscle tone, and strength. An x-ray determines the hidden causes of stress on the back, from misaligned vertebrae to GPS chips of mysterious origins. Based on x-ray findings, the chiropractic adjustment plies and stretches the spine to relieve pain and improve its functionality. Cracking and popping joints indicates the effectiveness of the treatment, though some patients report slight discomfort and cravings for Rice Krispies. Toward the end of the treatment, patients receive a 30-minute massage of the spine. As a whole, these procedures can address chronic stress, back pain, whiplash, and some kinds of headaches. Services can be split between two appointments if necessary.
Drawing on an arsenal of natural Aveda products and med-spa technology, the staff at Pure Skin and Body tackles tension and skin trouble with a variety of procedures. The salon specializes in a range of laser treatments, in which trained technicians wield focused beams of light to remove sun spots, dissolve multicolor tattoos, and prove to their parents that not only super villains use lasers for a living.
Aestheticians complement laser sessions with depilating waxing or threading treatments, organic or microdermabrasion facials, and permanent-makeup application. They can also help to augment health naturally with vitamin-supplement kits, which customize vitamin intake based on medical analysis to strengthen hair, skin, and nails like a doctor’s birthday wish. Carried on air rich with the scents of aromatherapy, slow sighs drift through the salon, emanating from patrons undergoing hot-stone massages.
At Salon Chambre, upbeat stylists chat with their regulars as they update 'dos with haircuts and color services. They'll summon a healthy shine from locks with deep-conditioning and hot-oil treatments, and promote circulation and relax frazzled strands with scalp massages. For a quick transformation, they can add instant length with sew-in and glue-in weaving, or soften and straighten strands with hair relaxers.
