Christopher Dunn was working as a professional musician when he visited a massage therapist for the first time. After 10 years of playing bass, he had developed tendinitis in his arm. The positive effects of the massage he received made such a strong impression that he switched careers. He learned massage and energy-healing techniques such as reiki, lomilomi, and craniosacral therapy at Blue Sky School of Professional Massage & Therapeutic Bodywork. The fruits of his studies are on full display at CMD Therapy, where Christopher strives to relieve pain and enhance well-being with deep-tissue, lomilomi, and lymphatic massages; reiki; and other energy treatments.
The hair artisans at Fantastic Sams’ more than 1,300 nationwide locations sculpt locks on both men and women with precision and skill. Along with creating updos for special occasions and performing facial waxing and mustache trims, the artisans accompany haircuts by shampooing strands and bolstering circulation with three-minute scalp massages that feature nourishing serum. Deep-conditioning treatments repair damage and bolster shine, and full-color services paint heads in subtle hues or shades as vibrant as a bouquet of light bulbs. A lineup of hair products rounds out the services, treating heads to restorative mixtures from brands such as Moroccanoil, Bamboo, and Fantastic Sams' own in-house line of shampoos, conditioners, and styling aids.

A salon of friends. That’s what the welcoming staff at Salon di Amici calls its home base. The tight-knit group makes a genuine effort to extend its bond to clients as it caters to all their haircare, skincare, and nailcare needs. Soothing green walls and rustic stone accents flank talented hairstylists in the styling area, where they treat strands to Redken, Pureology, and Moroccanoil products while trimming overgrown lengths and boosting dull color. Inside a cozy spa room, specialists indulge skin with facials and mineral-makeup applications, and therapists ease tension with massages. Cushy pedicure chairs beckon sore backs to the nail corner, where hot stones melt tension during relaxing mani-pedis.
