In each of Elements Therapeutic Massage's private treatment rooms, dim lighting and soft music complement the scents of oils or lotions as licensed massage therapists brandish their body-focused expertise. The professionals ply tension from muscles with a variety of modalities, including Swedish, prenatal, and sports massage, which uses focused pressure and stretching techniques to ease pain stemming from field injuries or from bench-pressing sports writers. To customize therapies to every patient, Elements' unique level system outlines four tiers of massage pressure to help clients to more easily communicate with their therapists about their preference for a light relaxation massage or a firmer, deeper treatment.
AJ’s Spa Millennium has more than its extensive menu of services to thank for being named one of Fox 8's top 20 Cleveland-area day spas in 2010. The all-purpose salon and spa earned that distinction due in large part to its dedicated team of beauticians. Though they wield their scissors, brushes, and facial scrubs as effectively as anyone, the beauticians share an even more important skill: they know how to strike a perfect balance between their own input and their clients’ individual preferences.
Skilled stylists utilize relaxers and Nioxin hair-strengthening treatments to reinvent 'dos, and aestheticians keep waxing treatments thankfully brief—full Brazilians clock in at an average of only 15 minutes. But they take their time administering 1 of 15 facials, allowing clients to relax under specialty masks infused with seaweed and nourishing minerals. The spa's new collection of aromatherapy scents—which includes champagne and rose, wild honey, and grandpa—soothes the senses during massages, scrubs, and mani-pedis.

The licensed aesthetician at Skin by Stevie specialized in manual, electrical, and chemical facials during her professional studies at the Salon Success Academy before earning her license from the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. Peels and facials ensure clients maintain a youthful glow despite a barrage of free radicals and airborne Splenda, whereas body wraps smooth out body topography. Other aesthetic services include teeth whitening, waxing, and makeup application.
Before Lisa Tolossa took over the reins of her beauty center and renamed it Doo It Up Salon, she was an employee for the previous owner. In the five years before she purchased the business, she perfected her skills as a hairstylist by learning Redken and Schwarzkopf coloring methods, studying Framesi cutting techniques, and earning certifications from Brazilian Blowout, Cadiveu, Keratin Complex, and Joico.
Today, Tolossa captains a roster of stylists who primp clients at the salon’s nine hair stations, one nail station, and two private rooms. Amidst deep-purple accents, corrugated-metal walls, and Craftsman tool chests filled with beauty supplies, the multitalented staff - including nail technician and mani-pedi expert Lynne Ho - crafts new looks with an array of services for nails, hair, and skin. They also sell products by Eufora, Moroccanoil, Brazilian Blowout, and American Crew, which can be used to style coiffures or lubricate a squeaky robotic arm.
