Whether you're looking for a fresh hairstyle or a soothing massage, Giorgio's Hair Salon and Spa has got your beauty and pampering needs covered. Hair services include highlights and single-process color along with cuts and conditioning, perms, and keratin treatments. Professional skin therapists at the spa also cater facials to specific skincare needs, treating skin to either deep-cleansing facials with extractions or a light cleansing facial with a soothing facial massage. Nailcare, makeup, and waxing services are also available.
Maroon-colored walls, plush treatment beds, and dim lights set the scene at Human Touch Spa. The atmosphere invites folks to kick back and let go, an easy feat with a massage therapist easing kinks and tension from the body one muscle at a time. Therapists offer Chinese, Japanese, and Thai massages that involve varying levels of pressure and stretching. They also perform foot reflexology treatments and couples massages that allow partners and friends to share a decadent massage without having to take turns being the massage table. Clients can relax with sauna sessions as well, which are a great way to get the muscles loose before a massage. Mani-pedis, facials, and acupuncture treatments round out the treatment menu.
Bronx Community Wellness Center combines ancient Chinese medicinal practices with modern techniques. That’s perhaps best symbolized by electrical acupuncture, in which electrical signals are sent through needles to create tiny, circulation-stoking muscle twitches. Licensed acupuncturists also use traditional techniques, inserting small, sterile needles into precise points to help restore energy flow and attempt to treat issues such as allergies, indigestion, or anxiety. Licensed massage therapists use Swedish, shiatsu, Thai, and circulatory modalities to evict stress, aches, and long-buried memories of scary clowns from muscles and spines. The Center also offers herbal medicine and classes in subjects such as meditation and yoga.
Relaxation and health can go hand in hand. At Spada Relax Center, a team of licensed massage therapists work to banish knots, ease tension, and otherwise pamper patrons—but the benefits don't stop there. Massages such as deep tissue, shiatsu, and hot stone can help to improve circulation and range of motion, as well as reducing stress.
Driven by more than just a love of healthy food, Italian-born Massimo Guerrieri draws from a background in anatomy, pharmacology, and aesthetics as he helps patrons enhance their quality of life. Over the years, Massimo created his own thermal-wrap technology, the Thermal-Wrap5000, which was featured in Integrative Medicine: A Clinician's Journal and which he still uses today as part of his spa's weight-loss program. On select nights, he hosts free lectures that teach the benefits of using his thermal-wrap method in conjunction with a balanced Mediterranean diet.
With pads wrapped around the torso, hips, and thighs, the Thermal-Wrap5000 machine relies on gentle conductive heating to encourage perspiration, calorie burning, and the reduction of local fatty deposits. Visitors undergo treatments inside colorfully lit, wood-paneled suites crafted in Florence, which put minds at ease faster than seeing your face on a Not Wanted poster. In addition to weight loss, Vivinlinea's staff also performs spa treatments, soothing complexions with essential oils and microdermabrasion and coaxing out tension with shiatsu and hot-stone massages.
Zebra-print chairs, Tiffany-style lamps, and oriental rugs pop against neon-green walls in the salon's hair and nails section, whereas lavender walls corral the private treatment rooms occupied by aestheticians and massage therapists. A slew of packages bundles treatments into multichapter beauty days with names such as "Blossom Lazy Day," "Blossom Luxe Day," and "Blossom All Over Me." In addition to facials, massages, and nailcare, the team at Blossom whitens smiles, tans skin with the sunbeams they harvest every day, and extends eyelashes.
