At Omni Massage, part of Omni Salon, clients can stride past the green plants that fleck the front door and stretch out on a massage table, ready for soothing strokes from the in-house massage therapist. The therapist's full-body kneads restore peace to anxious minds and muscles, improving circulation in the process. Omni Salon complements bodywork sessions with hair services, nail treatments, and skincare such as facials.
Since opening Casa De Bellini Salon & Spa, Juanita Valencia has established a warm atmosphere that welcomes clients seeking style transformations. Her efforts have paid off, earning her repeat business and turning many of those clients into friends. Inside the 3,000-square-foot salon, she leads a team of stylists that specializes in haircare for both men and women. Team members prep hair for a trim with a shampoo and hot towels, accent natural hues with single-process color and highlights, and condition with natural keratin. They also smooth faces and shoulders with microdermabrasion treatments, add dazzling color to nails during mani-pedis, and knead away buried stress with full-body massage sessions. Their signature hot rock mani-pedi combines elements of all three services, reenergizing skin with a sugar scrub and seaweed mask, trimming and shaping nails, and simmering away tension with a hot-stone massage for arms and lower legs.
Before Bessy Lim had her first facial, her life was a succession of stressful, 12-hour shifts. Her first spa experience awakened a latent desire: she wanted to help others find the relaxation she had forgone for so long. With that, she left her stressful career, earned a number of spa certifications, traveled abroad to learn the various therapeutic techniques and ways to pronounce "microdermabrasion" of spas overseas, and finally opened Agua De Vida. There, a corps of certified and licensed massage therapists team up with the spa specialist to mend tense muscles with massage, swaddle bodies in wraps, purify pores with facials, and primp hands and feet with nail services.
The nail technicians at Nailz N' More clean and prettify fingers and toes with high-quality salon products. Talons and their cuticles embark on a 105-minute organic mani-pedi session with a thorough trimming and shaping. A soothing10-minute hand massage follows, along with an exfoliating scrub, an organic Tasha body-butter rubdown, and a snuggle session with toasty-warm towels or baguettes fresh from the oven. OPI or Essie polishes adorn the body's 20 tiny canvases, and hooves enjoy a 15-minute massage. Once at the salon, Groupon holders can upgrade at a discount to french polish for $8, paraffin treatment for $12, or CND no-chip gel fingernail polish for $28 or toenail polish for $33.
