BodyWorks Massage Group's licensed massage therapists specialize in four massage modalities—Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and pregnancy—to deliver massages that address physical ailments or enhance relaxation. They employ hypoallergenic massage lotions and creams that glide easily across backs, allowing them to knead stubborn knots without causing irritation. In addition to treating pain and improving flexibility, massages boost function in both the circulatory and lymphatic systems, making toxins disappear faster than steaks in a butcher shop managed by feral hyenas.
After moving from Ft. Lauderdale, Tina Cusano opened Olympia Salon and began using her styling skills for the good of hairdos everywhere. Her salon's cosmetic-service list contains treatments that target areas across the body. Tina and her team provide haircuts for men and women, and dole out waxing and manicure treatments for clients with unwanted nail hair.
Tangles Hair Studio’s tress sculptors make manes presentable with expertly administered hair styling and coloring for both men and women. With more than 20 years of experience, master stylist Cindy Brewer oversees a small, intimate salon—the coziness allowing for clearer communication between stylist and client, a more personal experience, and riveting staring contests in the mirror. The scissor brandishers first nimbly snip heads of hair that enter Tangles' yellow-walled and brightly lit salon to create cuts easily maintained and preserved at home. After a deft styling, hair undergoes a color treatment performed with Goldwell products. Tangles' coloring services can take care of root touchups or achieve hue ubiquity with an all-over coloring.
At Miss Massage, easing aches and pains is only the beginning of what licensed massage therapist Jill can achieve. That's because Jill's massage services extend beyond the Swedish and deep-tissue massage (though she does offer those traditional styles of bodywork). The licensed massage therapist also holds a certification in reflexology, which heals the entire body by working on specific points in the feet. She also exfoliates bodies with homemade scrubs (also available for purchase) that emanate the aromas including chocolate brownie, peppermint snow, and honeydew pie.
But perhaps the best thing about Miss Massage is the fact that they are part of a larger salon and that Jill's hours are extremely flexible—whether clients need to come in early in the morning, in the evening after work, or during a lunch break, she's usually able to accommodate their schedules.
Gleaming silver scissors flit beneath shelves brimming with bottles of Coppola Keratin formula and Rusk color products on the lavender and sky-blue walls inside Bebe Salon. Drawing upon more elixirs from Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Kenra, stylists leave locks beautiful for fashion shoots or hours spent stuck in the revolving door at a popular tourist attraction. Hands wrap around complimentary mugs of coffee and soda at the salon, and hushed sighs fill the air as patrons sit for pedicures or prepare for hot-stone massages.
Some people seek a massage to escape the daily stresses of life, while others are looking for relief from chronic muscle pain. The Massage Therapy Clinic’s licensed therapist Jacqueline Richmond sought special training in how to tailor her massage sessions to both types of clients, bringing the body into balance with the spirit and the mind.
