Lava Massage Studio owner Laura Pacanin helms a team of licensed massage therapists, all of whom share her belief in massage?s unique ability to relieve stress and stimulate the body's natural healing processes. At sessions held in your home or in one of the studio?s private rooms, the therapists draw on their knowledge of Eastern and Western healing modalities to dissipate buildups of tension. Their signature Thai massages incorporate elements of yoga and acupuncture to balance the body?s out-of-whack energies; hot-stone massages take it a step further, combining Thai strokes with the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones. Among the modalities more commonly seen in a Western spa, sports massages help the body recover from injuries incurred while slam-dunking or arm-wrestling with the opposing team?s mascot.
Laura and her crew supplement their bodywork treatments with add-ons such as exfoliating foot scrubs and migraine therapy. After your appointment, visit the studio?s shop to stock up on unconventional beauty products such as goat's-milk soap and housemade sugar scrubs.
The owners of Lava Tanning & Massage stock their storefront with premium UV beds, as well as offer UV-free spray tanning procedures, earning their Salem location a spot on Looking Fit magazine's list of the Top 250 tanning salons in 2009.

Solia Spa's microcurrent package engages clients for 60 minutes with a trio of youth-resuscitating, noninvasive therapies performed by a skilled aesthetician. After a thorough cleansing and exfoliation, treatments begin sending painless microcurrent impulses through the facial surface to tighten and firm aging skin. Simultaneously, waves of ultra-sonic energy vibrate through vessels, increasing oxygen circulation by shaking out tollbooths clogging blood-cell traffic. The LED-light therapy bathes cells with infrared rays up to three times brighter than the sun to encourage collagen production in a process similar to photosynthesis, except without the risk of becoming a Swamp Thing. The regenerative beams can also help wipe away acne-causing bacteria and uneven texture. Clients seeking to shower underappreciated fingers in equal amounts of coddling may choose today's second option to enhance their session with a chip-resistant Shellac manicure.
Tucked inside of a full-service medical clinic, Premier Laser Care administers cosmetic and aesthetic treatments with the assistance of FDA-approved equipment and the supervision of board-certified doctor Carmen Popa. To reinstate youthful full-body beauty, Dr. Popa and her staff utilize ClearScan laser technology to vanquish unwanted hair and vascular issues such as spider veins or broken capillaries; broadband light therapy allows them to pulse away sun spots, age spots, redness, and other issues caused by aging, sun exposure, or a public reading of your fifth-grade diary. Lax skin around the eyes or on the body can be re-tightened with fractional resurfacing or SkinTyte II infrared energy, respectively, and finer lines and wrinkles find themselves swiftly smoothed out after injections of Botox or cosmetic dermal fillers.
Hairdos blossom, skin textures soften, and nails brighten at the hands of the beauty professionals at Jessy K’s Salon and Spa. After a haircut, stylists can rekindle graying or fading tresses with dimensional highlights or smooth out frizzy strands with keratin treatments. Aestheticians pave the road to youth and beauty with microdermabrasion treatments, vitamin-enriched skin products, and hot-stone facials that wrestle wrinkles and fine lines from the skin, whereas nail technicians narrow in on fingers and toes during regular or shellac manicures and can also add acrylic tips to save clients the trouble of making their own nails out of pistachio shells.
