Integrative Healing Spa's owner, Amber Gilbo, is a double threat: not only is she a licensed massage therapist, but she's also a yoga instructor with a 200-hour certification under her belt. Her center's healing treatments reflect her dual talents. Therapists offer massages in a range of styles, including four-handed massages, during which two massage therapists work in tandem. They also perform reflexology treatments, which target problems throughout the body by focusing pressure on the hands and feet.?In addition to massage, Integrative Healing offers yoga and meditation classes that hone students' flexibility six days a week. Some classes are held by candlelight, and others are focused on strength-building poses. For clients looking for a more high-intensity workout, Integrative Healing Spa also offers Hoopnotica, a fun, fat-burning workout that blends elements of dance and hula hooping.
Tonia Reed's first salon was modest. With only two stations and one other stylist, the beauty specialist found that her burgeoning skills and thriving client base were becoming too much for the space to handle. In 2004, she became enamored of a large Victorian-style home, and the site of In Vogue Salon & Spa was born. Decked in stately chandeliers and dark-wood bureaus, the salon surrounds its experienced hair, skin, and massage professionals with the same vintage inspiration that originally took hold of its owner. Clients take in a cup of flavored coffee or tea before basking in a massage or facial in a private treatment room or gazing into gilded mirrors as stylists sculpt locks and enrich them with vibrant colors. To polish the rest of clients' statures, technicians wax away unwanted hair and pull from a shelf of OPI products to groom and shape fingernails before they start biting themselves.
