Helmed by certified massage therapist Barb King, Pure Therapy ends stress's stranglehold on muscles and minds by promoting physical health and psychological well-being. King tailors her massages to each client, kneading away chronic aches and targeting painful problem areas. The Swedish massage uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate anxiety. Fluid strokes extract tension and stress, whisking the spirit to an isle of tranquility, where the sun always shines and the alarm clock never recites bawdy limericks. An effective way to ease headaches, back pain, and arthritis, a Swedish massage offers a chance at blissful relief. Meanwhile, warm yellow lamps, calming green walls, and a cozy fireplace distract guests with aesthetic comfort as the therapist evicts pesky charley horses and surly tendon jockeys.
The astute staff at Shear Heaven Salon & Spa whispers away stress or trims tresses with an array of spa services. A massage therapist's fingers knead muscles in more than 20 modalities, and aestheticians pamper skin with milk-and-honey collagen masks, body-waxing services, and facials. Body wraps chase away toxins with natural ingredients such as Dead Sea mud, green-tea extract, and seaweed plucked directly from sleeping otters' paws. As salon patrons kick back in salon chairs, Joico-trained stylists shorten locks into daring pixie cuts or shift shades to match earth-toned abstract art on the walls.
The skin sultans at Bella Spa fuse the power of microdermabrasion and Biomaris products to exfoliate faces and recharge them with a healthy-looking glow. Armed with diamond-tipped microderm wands, Bella’s experienced technicians grant faces relief from dead skin cells with fairy godmother precision, allowing moisture to seep into pores and tighten the face. A calming minifacial pampers and soothes recently excavated pores with products by Biomaris, which deliver ingredients such as chamomile, honey, and lime-blossom extract, and swim blithely with deep-sea substances including marine algae, sea salt, and the tears of only the most youthful dolphins.
Therapist Michelle Hanna, trained in several types of massage, employs her dexterous digits to melt stiff muscles into body butter with soothing services. After conferring with human-putty projects to decide which techniques will benefit them the most, Hanna palms specific pressure points and tends to backs, arms, legs, feet, hands, heads, necks, and shoulders. Guests may request a soundtrack of soft music, allowing them to relax to the sonic whispers of smooth jazz, earth sounds, or Swedish death metal as anatomical dough gets painstakingly kneaded. Each mitigatory molding may relieve stress, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, and potentially even help reduce blood pressure in weary Igors or Quasimodos.
Burnt-red walls and cozy furniture create a homey, welcoming experience for guests at Lena Salon & Spa, ideal for relaxing before a pampering beauty treatment. Salon and spa services run the gamut from haircuts to eyelash extensions and nailcare. Airbrush tanning, massages, and bridal packages are also available.
The seasoned, friendly tendril-tamers at The Hare Hut civilize savage cuticles and pacify surly digits with expert nail services. With a professional manicure, customers relax as grabby grapplers are buffed, filed, and polished to glistening perfection. Meanwhile, the bundled pedicure service revamps toes so they feel gorgeous enough to approach dapper shoes and ask them out on a date. As their phalanges are thoroughly mollycoddled, patrons can soak in the welcoming ambience of The Hare Hut’s brightly colored furnishings and warmly lit space.
