Inside Studio 355's contemporary salon, a team of beauty experts helps clients to showcase their best selves with a lengthy list of hair, skin, and nail services. The salon boasts a large team of stylists and master stylists, many of them educated abroad under highly regarded hair programs and well-known stylists to the stars. With Aveda products in its arsenal, the hair team uses its varied talents to give clients any look they desire, be it extensions, bridal updos, creative coloring, or straight, relaxed hair. An accomplished skin therapist helps fight the signs of aging or skin conditions such as acne with services for both men and women, and waxing treatments leave body hair wondering what it did to not deserve its own updo.
Nashingda Snow lives for the moment when a massage ends. At that point in the session, the licensed therapist is finally able to see her clients' faces again as they realize that their lingering aches and pains have been soothed. Before she gets to this moment though, Nashingda works with her clients to identify specific areas of pent-up stress and tension. Gentle Swedish strokes can help alleviate knots near the surface, although Nashingda can then begin to use more specialized modalities as she targets the troublesome spots located deep within the muscles. This combination of techniques can help treat the physical symptoms?tense muscles and inflexible joints?as well as the mentally exhausting effects that stress can worsen. Throughout all of the appointments, Nashingda helps put clients at ease by playing gentle music.
Revitalizing appearances is only half the job at Faye Beauty Spa. The team ensures that every treatment doubles as a tension-alleviating retreat, sending clients home feeling rejuvenated and reenergized. Therapeutic massages accompany each facial and help visitors relax while the aestheticians use specialized products and technologies to restore the skin's youthful texture and radiance. Deep-cleaning facials gently uproot blackheads and ultrasonic systems help nutrient-rich serums sink deeper beneath the surface of the skin.
In addition to their full-body massages and hand and foot treatments, Faye Beauty Spa specializes in eyebrow tattoo treatments. Dedicated professionals take each client's facial structure into account when planning a design and then creating full, natural-looking brows.
At Nirvana Reflexology Spa, a team of certified reflexologists uses the ancient therapy to relieve ailments and reduce toxins. During reflexology treatments, pressure is applied to specific areas of the feet and hands that are believed to line up with many of the body's internal organs. The treatment, aside from inducing general feelings of relaxation and well-being, has been shown to positively impact everything from migraines and back pain to insomnia and anxiety. For additional soothing, the therapists also administer an herbal tea bath for the feet, since coffee can often leave toes jumpy, and they also work out tension in the neck and scalp, adjusting pressure to each client's comfort level.
One step into Timothy?s Salon & Spa (formerly Happy Feet), and it's immediately clear that it's a place of relaxation. Herbal fragrances fill the space and low lighting shades the minimalist decor. Soft music plays in a few different styles. It's an easy setting in which to feel relaxed and sets the stage for the reflexology treatments Timothy?s is known for.
But the massage practitioners here have talents that go well beyond toes and soles. Many of their services combine signature reflexology with other techniques, including shiatsu for the shoulders and neck. Or they can focus entirely on Swedish and deep-tissue massages or other custom kneads. Beyond providing that kind of internal bliss, aesthetics are a priority here too, with stylists who add value to any spa day with haircuts and aestheticians who apply permanent makeup and eyelash extensions.
Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy?or chi?from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa?s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body?s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.
