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 experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
