Iconic portraits of Marilyn Monroe hang from the bubblegum-pink walls of Your Hearts Desire Hair Studio. That starlet’s rise to fame is an inspiration to the salon’s stylists and nail technicians, who do everything in their power to make clients Hollywood-ready. Aside from face-flattering haircuts and highlights, they offer indulgent spa treatments such as hot-stone mani-pedis. From time to time, they even enhance their nail treatments with seasonal scents that include peppermint, apple spice, and fresh-baked popsicle.
At Sabe Spa & Wellness, technicians use a noninvasive body-sculpting procedure to shake excess inches from targeted areas such as love handles, thighs, and abdomens. Low-frequency ultrasound vibrates the membranes of fat cells, breaking them down with the help of the LED light and causing them to release their contents into the body and shrink to the size of an ant’s top hat. As customers drink plenty of water and exercise, their metabolic processes naturally remove the contents of these broken-down fat cells.
As a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Christina Navedo specializes in alleviating her clients' tension and offering them an indulgent escape from the stresses of daily life. Her massage sessions can use gently flowing strokes or aromatic essential oils to facilitate relaxation, although Christina can also target deep knots in the muscles and surrounding connective tissues by using focused pressure as well as pain-relieving gels made from plant extracts. Beyond therapeutic bodywork, The Healing Garden also offers invigorating spa treatments in the form of customized facials and microdermabrasion treatments, which thoroughly exfoliate the skin and reveal the naturally radiant, blemish-free, and nougat-covered layers underneath the surface.
After years of helping others in her career in the medical field, a serious injury left Jill Hayden laid up without the use of her right arm. No doctor, physical therapist, or arm-wrestling coach was able to restore function to her ailing appendage or relieve her ever-present pain, so she turned to massage as a last resort. The massage treatments not only set her right, but also inspired her to study with the massage therapist who healed her.
Today, the licensed massage therapist and nationally certified instructor, shares her knowledge with her clients and her own students. She specializes in isometric muscle-balancing pain-relief massage, which helps rehabilitate muscles.
