Plying her trade out of On Broadway Salon, Sami Mason mixes aromatic oils with her diverse arsenal of massage modalities. Her specialties range from Swedish massage bolstered by essential oils to reflexology treatments that aim to alleviate pain by stimulating nerve endings. Sami's hot-stone massages penetrate deeply into muscles with soothing heat that complements massage strokes. Her techniques melt away tension more quickly and effectively and with less mess than hot-meatball massages.
The experienced stylists at Hair Rage deftly trim shining tresses and technicians pamper fingers and toes with expert nail services. During an initial hair consultation, clients meet with stylists to discuss which cuts will attractively frame their features or enhance the realism of a rubber Richard Nixon mask. Experienced fingers then massage scalps with nourishing shampoo at rows of sleek black sinks before stylists snip, style, and blow-dry tresses at a mirrored styling station. Alternatively, during a spa mani-pedi, techs will clip, shape, and polish finger and toenails after a warm, soothing footbath bubbles away stress and henna tattoos of old grocery lists.
The aestheticians at BodyTrends specialize in nonsurgical Electrospa treatments that have toned and beautified the bodies of beauty-pageant contestants. By stimulating muscles with gentle electrical currents, technicians can mimic the effects of a face-lift or breast lift without ever breaking the scalpel out of its emergency glass. Lasers erase unwanted hair, veins, cellulite, and tattoos, and facial services banish blemishes while adorning features with MNA and mineral cosmetics. For feelings of inner peace, BodyTrends' massage therapists capture tension from bodies and release it deep in the woods to plague overly frivolous nymphs.
Touch of Serenity’s Christie honed her skills at Heritage College and uses them to relieve pain and tension with an array of kneading techniques. Located inside Plush Salon, patrons can choose a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, which mollifies tense low-lying muscles. An Indian head massage focuses on the upper back, the shoulders, the scalp, and the face, where stress can otherwise turn its owner’s appearance into that of the most stressed profession of all: steel beam. Mothers-to-be can relax during prenatal massages designed to accommodate their physical condition.
With its fully licensed and certified legion of muscle manipulators, The Body Shop Massage Therapy wrings worries out of world-worn bodies to establish more peaceful states of being.

Swing in for 60 minutes of Swedish massage, and unwind coiled cutaneous knots with light pressure and connective strokes that gently improve circulation and energize ligaments. Those sore from manning the town catapult can knock out abysmal aches with a deep-tissue massage, which focuses on injury-related issues and severely cramped muscles. With Triggerpoint therapy, an expert energy wielder manipulates pressure points in the hands, feet, face, and ears, which correspond to specific limbs and organs, to help stimulate self-healing and improve cable reception.
