From the walls of their private treatment rooms to the uniforms of the aestheticians, robin's egg blue pervades Stress Solutions Spa. The soft sky color is intended to signify the renewal and beauty granted by the spa's staff of skin experts, nail technicians, and massage therapists. The crew draws upon a skin-rejuvenating arsenal of nutrient-rich seaweed wraps, essential oils, and moisturizing creams, leaving patrons relaxed and beautiful like the models in a hammock catalog.
At Life Strength & Health Holistic Center, the therapists and clinicians feel that everything?the physical, mental, energetic, and spiritual?is connected. To honor this holistic mindset, they tap into all of these areas in order to address any number of issues including insomnia, indigestion, or weight gain. They then gather that information and incorporate it into their all-encompassing services. Detox programs ameliorate internal hygiene while minimizing stress.
The experienced massage therapists and aestheticians at YY Beauty Spa believe beauty treatments should be relaxing, effective, and enjoyable. An Eastern statue watches over their Watchung spa, which is decorated in jewel tones with mod furniture, telepathically imparting beauty advice as clients receive customized waxing treatments, facials, permanent makeup, and bodywork.
Though the salon and spa is named after her, owner Kathy doesn't work alone. In fact, the hairstylist—who is also a trained massage therapist specializing in hot-stone and deep-tissue modalities—works alongside two other beauticians. Hairstylist Diane joins Kathy on the salon floor, where she showcases her apt knowledge of keratin treatments as well as constructing special-occasion hairdos. Together the duo reaches for Cures, GK Hair, and Paul Mitchell products as they create both classic and trendy hairstyles. Back in a private spa room, aesthetician Karina deep cleanses pores with custom facials. When Karina is out on the salon floor, she reaches for cosmetics to doll up customers for weddings, date nights, and parties at private clown-only clubs.
Elements Massage fends off unnecessary medical procedures with soothing techniques that trigger the body's natural healing abilities. Clients are paired with therapists who assess their specific aches and health conditions. They then use four levels of pressure and a blend of up to six modalities, such as deep-tissue, Swedish massage, and finger ballet, to create a customized massage. Their soothing kneads combat pain, loosen tight limbs, and disperse oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
When the most basic pedicure offered includes a thorough foot massage, you know you're at a nail salon that values indulgence. And the pampering continues throughout each session at The Pedi Spa, as feet are treated to warm bubble soaks and fragrant exfoliation treatments. After toes have been transformed into perfectly relaxed puddles, nail technicians apply glossy coats of polish before sending patrons on their way.
