Stress isn’t allowed inside Tresor Day Spa. The spa’s staff bars the door against tensions with a panoply of pamperings, such as therapeutic massage, baobab footbaths, and mud body wraps that draw out toxins. Many of their services use Nu Skin products that are designed to undo aging. Galvanic facial and body treatments, which tighten and tone skin, are a particular specialty here, particularly because they minimize the appearance of cellulite, wrinkles, and imprints from crushing beer cans on your forehead.
The soft aroma of Aveda’s plant-based shampoos and styling products wafts through Aveda Avenue Salon Spa. At their stations, stylists cut and color manes, conditioning dry, damaged strands with botanical treatments that harness the power of plant oils and quinoa proteins. Small touches enhance the rest of the services: After sipping complimentary mugs of soothing tea, clients enjoy facials that can include special add-on treatments for the eyes and back. Similarly, clients can enhance their manicures and pedicures with warm paraffin dips and hot-stone massages.
Vases of green bamboo accent the salon’s stone walls and earth tones. The natural decor reflects its proclivity for environmentally friendly products and brooding park rangers.
At The Strand at Sola Salons, the deft and generous fingers of stylists Abby and Michele attend to scalps with relaxing, massaging movements. This supplemental courtesy, which accommodates every haircut, evidences the duo’s commitment to client satisfaction. Abby and Michele don’t just rush through services; rather, they take time to listen to clients before administering signature cuts, colorings, or keratin smoothing treatments. In this way, they not only achieve unique and classic styles—they also generate good karma with clients so they can form long-term relationships and eventually be reincarnated in the form of well-groomed poodles.
Many people realize their lives' passions during college. Rachel Joyce discovered hers in a car accident. Rachel studied public relations and advertising in school, but after graduating, she was unable to find a job that she felt comfortable in. It wasn’t until she received her first professional massage to treat pains related to a car accident that she enrolled in the Oregon School of Massage to get licensed and start her own practice. As the owner of TouchWorks Massage, Rachel, along with her team, tends to aches, pains, and injuries through massage therapies that include deep kneads, soothing strokes, and Morse-code lullabies.
