At Melody’s Massage studio, licensed massage therapists harness the therapeutic techniques of ancient Hawaiian healers during traditional lomi lomi massage sessions. Pain and stress head for the getaway car as long, gliding strokes ripple down backs, with practitioners delivering nurturing kneads with the aid of deft hands, elbows, and forearms. Two therapists team up for the tandem massage to jointly manipulate in balance the body's left and right sides for clients with extra muscle tension and problematic lumps of coal. Faux island getaways unfold in one of the studio’s private massage rooms, where warm incandescent lights ease tired eyes, cool sheets enfold bodies, and an active volcano quietly warms the therapist’s dinner.
From the outside, Resolutions Med Spa has the look of a rural country house––a quality that continues inside to its pastel-hued walls, wood accents, and plush, high-backed pedicure sofas. Amid these cozy accents, guests may partake in a mélange of beautification services, ranging from microdermabrasion and chemical peels to waxing and makeup consultations. The spa also employs a licensed massage therapist who can ease chronic tension with hot-stone therapy and restorative deep-tissue bodywork.
A Redken–exclusive salon, Details Salon styles, shapes, and smooths all manner of distressed digits and tormented tresses with a bevy of beauty remedies.

The coiffure-calming treatment is good for all types of head fur, and with the proper care and protection from poisoned hats, results can last up to six weeks. As a bonus, customers who choose the smoothing option will also receive a 10% discount on any hair service at their next appointment.
