The stylists at Shear Madness are equally comfortable sprucing up hairstyles with cuts and color treatments, waxing away facial hair, and misting exteriors with airbrush tans. But unlike Icarus, who flew so close to the sun that his wings got all sweaty and gross, they know their limitations; they pass clients over to an onsite massage therapist for bodywork sessions, which range from 30 to 90 minutes. Ever accommodating, the staff welcomes walk-ins during most business hours and on Saturdays, and they also schedule appointments for after 5 p.m.
After more than 13 years in the massage business, Marta Vishy closed her practice to focus on being a mother to her newborn son. Now her decade-long hiatus has ended, and Marta has returned with a new wealth of life experience to draw from. In the comfort of a cozy room, guests can seek her expertise for flowing Swedish strokes to promote relaxation or request deep-tissue pressure or trigger-point therapy to relieve lower-layer aches.
Whether performing a Swedish massage or energy work, licensed massage therapist Mary Glimpse customizes every treatment to suit the client. No two massages at Healing Touch Massage and Wellness are exactly alike—Glimpse may supplement a Swedish massage with a stroke from her deep-tissue repertoire, or she might simply sprinkle the back muscles with a touch of paprika.
Seasoned aesthetician Linda Hoff eschews drug-assisted treatments for all-natural, holistic wellness techniques. Drawing on years of experience, Hoff tackles chronic skin, body, and beauty conditions with services that target an extensive array of ailments. A half dozen different facials treat everything from rosacea and eczema to wrinkles and dryness. The all-natural body-sugaring process rids brows and limbs of unwanted hair and attracts smooches from puppies with low blood sugar.
Every day, humans are pummeled by modern stresses such as schedules, bills, chores, and the endless smacking of the neighbor's butter churn. We need time to reboot. Enter the licensed massage therapists at Body Temple Healing Arts. They restore balance to the body with their myriad healing techniques. Depending on clients' needs, they may use traditional therapeutic bodywork or utilize energy-directed treatments such as reiki and crystal balancing. Indulgent add-ons of hot stones and soothing aromatherapy are also available.
The licensed massage therapists at Studio E Massage use the healing powers of bodywork to untie tight muscular knots and sideline tension. Guests can request a soothing Swedish massage to promote relaxation or a firmer deep-tissue massage to dismantle lower-layer aches and stubborn land-mine tattoos. Specialty massages for expecting mothers are also available.
