Sabrena Wicker had a light-bulb moment as she received her first massage: her career calling was to become a massage therapist. Wicker enrolled in massage school, earned a degree, and opened Tinker Massage and Day Spa Studio. Within the spa's softly lit treatment rooms, massage therapists practice several modalities and perform spa treatments for singles or doubles. To enhance bodywork sessions, the therapists incorporate elements of nature—heated stones infuse heat into muscles, essential oils perfume the air, and a charm of hummingbirds creates a relaxing breeze.
After years of learning an array of healing techniques from physicians and fellow therapists, aesthetician and massage therapist Chellie Abernathy opened her own practice to address clients’ individual needs with soothing massages. Her wide range of interests, from cosmetology to surgical technology, gives Chellie a well-rounded view of the human body’s inner and outer workings, which helps her relate to a wide range of people, from professional athletes to professional couch surfers. Though she specializes in the more intense, deep-tissue style, Chellie also performs other modalities, including Swedish, hot stone, and acupressure.
The talented stylists at Eden, An Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa beautify tresses with chic haircuts, luxurious glossing treatments, and natural Aveda highlighting products. Each cut begins with a sudsy shampoo, prepping the hair for style overhauls or precision-cut haircut maintenance. Partial highlights give tresses visual texture with 24 or fewer foils, and full highlights enhance the color palette of entire heads. Eden's stylists perform all highlighting using Aveda hair colors, which are composed of over 97% naturally derived ingredients. To keep color looking rich, shimmer-rich glossing treatments add shine to strands, enhancing its aesthetic appeal and forming a protective coat around cuticles. A custom styling concludes each appointment, sending clients out into the world outfitted in the latest skull fashions.
In an elegant setting that exudes tranquility, the stylists at Deja'Vu pamper female and male patrons with comprehensive beautifying treatments. Entrust a coif to the skilled scissor hands of a salon specialist, who can customize an alluring haircut and beguiling styling that best reflects the client’s unique personality and ideal credit score. Meanwhile, a shampoo treatment soothes the scalp and ensures that locks sport a healthy shine in their ‘do debut.
The Body Shop's experienced skin-sculptors rejuvenate the body and balance the brain box using mostly natural ingredients and skillful body treatments. Certified aestheticians will lovingly pamper visages with the personalized PCA specialty facial, which harnesses powerful nourishing serums and the tears of prize-winning racehorses. After a thorough exfoliation, the final soothing touches are applied to leave your corpus feeling soft, supple, and sunny. The purifying facial pacifies acne-prone mugs, freeing clogged pores with a clarifying mask composed of natural ingredients, topped with 20% salicylic acid and cherry extract. A PCA detox-gel is also applied to reduce inflammation, knock out bacteria, and remove excess skin dander. The diamond microdermabrasion treatment removes dead skin cells, a process that allows the tender under-skin to emerge fresh and as soft as a velvet painting of a cherubic woman wearing a velvet jumpsuit.
Modern Elegance Salon provides hair, skin, and massage treatments tailored exclusively to each client. Stylists Amanda and Ashli excel at colors as well as retexturing to add shine, reduce frizz, and straighten hair. To complete the team, certified massage therapist Kristi specializes in a variety of modalities, unburdening her tense clients with bodywork ranging from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to reflexology.
