The health specialists at Wisdom Of Healing aim to balance the body, mind, and soul with holistic treatments. Migraines and cluster headaches are eased with pressure-point therapy and an inflammation-reducing cold-stone treatment, and hot towels soothingly swaddle hands and feet. Patrons can also relax with the aid of an authentic Swedish massage, which employs gliding kneads to calm the nervous system and untangle anatomical half-hitches.
The certified massage therapists at Healing Through Massage compare the human body to a musical instrument: both need to be kept in tune to function optimally. Using relaxing Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and shiatsu techniques, they work to restore the body to balance. Patrons can also opt for reflexology sessions, during which therapists apply precise pressure to the feet and hands.
Metal lights hang from the high red ceiling like martini glasses, casting glow on saffron-colored walls. Dividing the space are black-trimmed mirrors and private hair stations, where skilled stylists sculpt strands into face-flattering ’dos and decorate with bold highlights. Clients may also solicit Studio 929 for a rejuvenating moroccan oil treatment or a specialty straightening session to detangle curls.
The beauticians at The Glamaholic pamper clients with salon and manicure services in their studio and at clients' homes. Stylists artfully cut and make over hair, beautifying with color, highlights, and keratin straightening treatments. Aestheticians glitz up nails with elaborate 3-D nail painting, adorning fingertips with flowers and colorful patterns.
Felecia Rincon knows that sugar can do a lot more than sweeten her coffee and stand in for snow on a ski slope. At Bare Sugaring Studio, she uses it to remove unwanted hair, practicing a spa treatment that goes back centuries. Applied opposite the direction of hair growth, her sugar-based paste sinks deep within the follicle, deeper than wax, to grip the hair at its root. When Felecia removes the paste, she takes with it the short, fine hairs that other epilation techniques miss, and even removes dead skin, leaving the legs, chests, chin, or any other body area, smooth and sleek.
