Sleek black furnishings contrast the salon's vibrant blue walls, which are bedecked with colorful artwork and an alabaster floral sculpture.
Within a tranquil, ocean-themed spa, licensed massage therapist Carol Parker and a team of professionals reduce stress with a variety of massage modalities and refreshing spa add-ons. Parker continuously builds on the education she acquired at The Salter School to bring relief to weary muscles. In addition to standard modalities such as Swedish, sports, and hot stone, Parker practices shiatsu finger-pressure massage and heat therapy with warmed seashells or seared T-bone steaks. Therapists light candles and play soft music to set a tranquil ambiance for couples massages and tailor hand movements to alleviate discomforts during pregnancy services. To heal the community in a more figurative sense, Parker regularly donates her therapeutic services to athletes raising money for charitable causes.
