Licensed Massage Therapist Stephanie S. Clifton operates Encore Massage Therapy as a conduit for spreading the healing benefits of massage to the community. Her clinical-massage services can act as an alternative pain-maintenance plan for individuals suffering from a host of maladies. Stephanie attacks tension and stress through Swedish massage, sciatica through deep-tissue strokes, and chronic icicle growths through the sports modality. With regular treatment, individuals can preempt health issues down the road through increased relaxation, smoother digestion, and boosted endorphin levels.
When you're dreaming up a new look with the stylists and nail technicians of Garcia's Hair Salon, the sky's the limit. Hair can transform into perfect ombre ringlets or sleek, subtly highlighted bobs, and mani-pedis impart styles ranging from coy (crisp French tips) to dramatic (glittering 3D embellishments that recite Shakespeare when held up to your ear). Such versatile fashions demand an equally stylish setting, and Garcia's decor delivers: accent walls alternate between cream, red, and brick, and a healthy dose of sunlight keeps the moods as lofty as the updos.
The manicure begins with a hot spa soak that transitions into a shaping of all 10 or so fingertips. After a hand and arm massage and a slickening polish, clients can put dukes down and piggies up. Lay back or sit up in a shiatsu massaging chair as feet endure a soothing bath that exfoliates dearly departed skin and reveals the cuddly side of tough and callous toes. The 40-minute customized facial is a thorough toning and cleansing that exfoliates out lingering surface debris and crud from the pores to instill the softness and springiness of a newborn baby made of feathers. The massage can go one of two ways over a total experience time of 60 minutes, either of which will include the aromatic-scent add-on for increased soothing. Select 40 minutes of either the deep-tissue massage, for a targeted treatment of a specific, ever-present knot, or the full- body Swedish, which combs the entire body, leaving improved circulation and decreased tension in its wake.
