Inside a tiled sanctuary, puffs of perfumed steam swim through the air, hovering just above the surface of a Japanese soaking tub. This is no ordinary bathtub. It’s the site of Fusion LifeSpa’s curative bath, a treatment that helps clients unwind in tinctures of hot mustard, spicy ginger, or lavender. Inspired by holistic Asian medicine and therapeutic European techniques, services such as curative baths embody Fusion LifeSpa’s eclectic influences.
In the front waiting area, staff members welcome clients with warm cups of organic green tea, a fitting complement to the spa’s feng shui decor. Inside the treatment rooms, European spa treatments—such as massages and facials—contrast Asian-inspired services, including the jasmine facial mask, which makes use of the spa's proprietary skincare line. Other services, such as a footbath inspired by a Moroccan hammam, cleanse the body with natural assistance from organic coffee, tangerines, and figs. And for holistic care, the spa’s acupuncture services can realign energy lines faster than an electrician trained in heart surgery.
ASAP Therapeutic Massage & Myotherapy?s therapists stay true to their center?s name, taking a fast-acting approach to pain relief with massages that help myofascial aches from chronic and acute pains from day-to-day life. Though they?ve been around since 1985, the staff needs only an hour or two to treat each client with gliding Swedish strokes or a targeted sports massage designed to improve flexibility. Therapists take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way, taking time to make sure every muscle gets the attention it deserves. For a hard-to-find massage experience, try the center?s specialty trigger-point myotherapy, which tackles myofascial aches and heals necks sore from painful 360-degree rotations. ASAP boasts a staff including multiple therapists and a full time receptionist, organizing the appointments in their four fully-equipped treatment rooms.
When Lori Scharmann founded Hair Proz Salon in 1991, she didn't expect it to become the institution it is today. More than 20 years and a new partner later, the salon's staff comprises many of the original stylists present at its opening, and they draw on those decades of experience when performing each of the salon's varied services. They revamp both men and women's looks with a lineup ranging from facials and manicures to haircuts and full-coloring treatments. To keep their transformation skills current, all stylists undergo continuing education classes and sit down for regular interviews with the most innovative 'dos. They carry products from brands such as Skinceuticals, Moroccanoil, and OPI to help clients maintain their new looks outside the salon.
