The Bodhi Tree Salon & Day Spa’s serene, earthy ambiance stems from its hardwood hallways, exotic blossoms, and quiet treatment rooms. Inside these quarters, massage therapists assuage muscles with eight modalities, including parafango therapy, which uses a blend of paraffin wax and dehydrated mud to stimulate the lymphatic system. Aestheticians revitalize complexions with custom facials and microdermabrasion treatments. In the salon section of the wellness studio, hairstylists perform cutting, styling, and coloring services for women and men using Redken products. Along with haircare, the staff offers manicures and pedicures, waxing services, and makeup applications for brides and identity thieves.
Inside Unix Cuts & Spa, a team of stylists, nail artists, and aestheticians render more beautiful exteriors with a slate of services. Stylists update hues with single-process color or highlights, while nail technicians use long-lasting gel to primp toes and fingertips. Armed with Dermalogica skincare products, aestheticians perform seven types of facials that address the unique needs of teenaged, male, or aging complexions.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
• For $40, you get a 60-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage (an $80 value). • For $50, you get a 90-minute Swedish or deep-tissue massage (a $100 value). Chasiti Conroy, the Powder Room's resident certified massage therapist deeply relaxes the body and mind with an arsenal of tension-melting massages and a soothing tableside manner garnered from her training as a nurse. The soothing Swedish massage combines four traditional techniques including circular effleurage strokes and friction to boost sluggish circulation and lymph flow and banish stress to the back of a DMV line during lunch-hour rush. If necessary, deeper strokes may be deployed to seek out and destroy tension camping out deep within the muscles and connective tissue and snuff out its scores of tiny, pain-causing campfires.
