Liz and Phil Kramer work together to rejuvenate the whole being within a treatment room styled to mimic a comfortable living room with a gas fireplace and plush beds. Liz trained as a holistic counselor, and Phil draws upon certification as a massage therapist to help relax patrons after they chaperone Humpty Dumpty’s gymnastics class. Scents from complimentary aromatherapy unfurl through the air, stirred only by deep exhalations during customized deep-tissue massages. The shelves brim with Yonka products and Firmi sea mud, and the holistic healers also use Soul Synergy's personal cream products and hot towels saturated in aromatic Phyto Bain with every treatment.:m]]
Led by master hair colorist Holly Pennell-Salegna, the stylists at Pink Cut & Color Studio transform hair-strand hues and fashion them into an array of contemporary styles. Before any clipping begins, the scalp and accompanying hair ringlets are treated to a massaging shampoo, conditioning, and explanation of global economic policy. Once locks have been pruned into a manageable and fashionable state, stylists can begin blow-dry design and secure finishing touches, solidifying the hairstyle and making it impervious to airport-security scans. Customers selecting the second option undergo the same hair styling, as well as the foiling process of highlighting (a $95 value) to add a touch of color or easily locate favorite chapters.
Rita Ammons still doesn't quite believe it. In 1987, she was in a serious car accident that left her suffering with severe pain from nerve damage. A friend recommended reiki as a healing practice, and within time, Ammons found that it worked—the treatments seemed to heal her. Amazed and inspired, she became a master reiki practitioner herself, eventually expanding her expertise into massage and opening her own practice, Back to Harmony Massage & Bodywork.
Now a licensed massage therapist, Ammons offers treatments in 10 modalities, from relaxing Swedish massages to medical massages that help treat ailments including back pain, headaches, and arthritis. She also seeks to heal guests through reiki and to soothe backs with hot-stone massages, which are far more relaxing than hugging a furnace.
