At Massage Rose Therapeutic Center, therapists are selected for the pain relief they provide with their hands. This lends to the center's extra-long list of specialties, which includes Shiatsu, Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and trigger-point therapy. Massage Rose also has a VIP program, which offers discounted sessions for clients who come at least once a month.
Indulgence is the status quo at Polish’d Nails, where staffers offer spa treatments that are as relaxing as they are physically rewarding. They offer pedicures with hot stones, cooling masks, antioxidant-rich green-tea soaks, and circulation-stimulating peppermint moisturizing masks, often accompanied by soothing massages. The staffers' manicures aid clients in unwinding with the addition of walnut-and-raspberry scrubs and hot-towel wraps.
Beginning her career in Budapest, Erika Tolnai studied chemistry and anatomy, but she didn't aspire to be a mad scientist—her fascination was instead with beauty. After a move to the United States and further extensive training, she opened Ika's European Spa as a body care oasis. She now tends to her clients' hair, skin, and nails with an emphasis on customized treatments, which enable her to address conditions from acne to 'dos in need of color correction.
For all of her haircuts and color services, Ika uses Redken and gluten-free Baco products. She tends to skin issues with a skincare menu that takes advantage of organic Image Skincare serums as well as microdermabrasion tools and ultrasound waves that produce anti-aging effects. If that's not enough, she also waxes away unwanted hair and polishes nails, warming hands with add-ons such as paraffin wax or a two-hour handshake.

Raum Nail & Spa's owner, Tae, encourages guests to put away their phones and simply enjoy the experience while they're at her nail spa. With Raum's soothing cups of tea, reclining manicure chairs, and beautiful flowering trees, that's not hard to do.
The various spa pedicures here are particularly relaxing with their scented scrubs, applications of melted chocolate and hot stones, and skin-softening milk baths. And after every manicure or pedicure, the technicians massage the client's shoulders while their nails dry.
Though they're advised to eschew technological distractions during treatments, patrons waiting for their appointments can take advantage of the salon's WiFi to check emails or research illnesses they can pretend they have when work calls looking for them.
It's no coincidence that the predominant imagery at Neptune 7 Salon & Spa is that of water. The salon's team of stylists pays special attention to this most vital of elements, painting their walls an aquatic blue and enhancing their haircuts with deep-conditioning treatments that inundate follicles with hydration. Thankfully, the menu at their full-service spa doesn't stop at the scalp. Other treatments include waxing, massages, corrective facials, and hydrating paraffin mani-pedis. There's even a teeth-whitening treatment that helps conceal stains caused by drinking coffee or idly chewing on the wrong end of your quill pen.
Blithe Salon?s staff includes hair stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists who work together to refresh body and spirit. For a new look from the shoulders up, clients can settle into a styling chair for a haircut, keratin straightening treatment, or color service. The skin becomes the focal point during European facials and microdermabrasion treatments, each of which is performed by a 22-year veteran of the skin care industry. Massage therapists Carolyn and Michelle, meanwhile, offer respites from the daily grind with soothing and therapeutic treatments such as hot bamboo massage.
