Soaking fizzies, sugar scrubs, and lotions might smell sweet enough to eat, but My Chic Party Boutique’s beautifiers actually use them to pamper small hands and feet. The boutique caters solely to kids with age-appropriate spa play-dates, from mani-pedis to facials. Children can have fun pampering each other and being pampered—at special stations. And the boutique also hosts parties that not only include spa pampering, but also movies, treats, and sometimes dress-up costumes and tea. Party packages please little and big girls alike, enhancing birthdays to Girl Scout troupes.
Led by certified chiropractor Dr. Philip A. Arnone, The Balanced Body Center blends chiropractic techniques with modern treatments for holistic health with a focus on client comfort, including a no-wait policy that ensures visitors quickly see the inside of the center's spacious, inviting private treatment rooms. Massage therapists guide muscles through one of three massage missions to eradicate stress and pain. The deep-tissue massage utilizes slow strokes and pressure to dig into muscles and flush out formidable tension strongholds. Swedish massage, deep tissue’s gentler, blonder cousin, promotes increased blood flow and relaxation with gliding strokes, kneading, and rhythmic tapping, and a medical massage manipulates the body's soft tissues to increase cell metabolism, speed up injury recovery, and increase range of motion in stiff joints and backs wrenched from competitive piggyback riding.
Each board-certified reflexologist at Relax Rebuild LLC has accrued a minimum of 15 years in the field with knowledge of massage and reflexology techniques from around the world. Each session aims to help clients find relief from head-to-toe aches, including migraines and allergies.
One by one, Dream Lash Studio's aesthetician Jasna Bhayani applies synthetic strands to individual eyelashes. As she applies each, lashes seem fuller, darker, and longer, until she's concluded. The result: up to 100 individual lash extensions, applied so seamlessly that they appear natural and temporarily eliminate the need for mascara.
The massage therapists at Therapeutic Body Solutions aim to end the adverse effects of stress that lead to premature aging and a host of physical and mental maladies. Their long, rolling Swedish strokes stimulate circulation and ease muscular tension, whereas deep-tissue massages deliver firm, cross-grain strokes to root out muscle knots. Reflexology technique targets specific points on the feet and hands that correspond with certain areas of the body to help boost immunity, calm nerves, or heal inflammation without having to eat a freezer-full of ice packs.
At Massage by David, licensed massage therapist David Martin eases stress with a combination of massage styles. Swedish, deep-tissue, myofascial-release, and manual lymph-drainage massages are customized for each client. He's had plenty of practice at this process, as more than 6,000 hours of experience inform each of his carefully tailored massages.
