At Healing Hands Massage of New England, massage therapists eliminate stiff shoulders and sore backs through the power of soothing touch. Licensed massage therapist Marcella Allard uses firm, subtle pressure to break up knots and relieve stress patterns in worn or weary muscles. Sessions can be customized to the needs of each client, and use a blend of styles to promote circulation and improve flexibility.

Manicure mavens at Daisy Doo's shape, polish, and festoon nails in a whimsical salon environment. On a flower-shaped table, the hands of pintsize patrons luxuriate in a sweet sugar scrub before being massaged with flavored lotion. Tiny fingertips receive a coating of kid-selected polish, deftly applied with tiny brushes stolen from a beauty school for elves. Feet follow the same pamper-path, but begin with a toe-tingling foot bath. Nail art bedecks newly dressed-up digits with designs ranging from butterfly patterns and zebra prints to crop circles and mimeographed Dead Sea Scrolls. While piano ticklers rest in the colorful mouth of a frog-shaped nail dryer, a temporary glitter tattoo adds additional pizzazz to already-dazzling divas.
At Salon 345 and Spa, stylists enlist the aid of salon products from renowned brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken to ensure hairdos have maximal allure. Beauticians pamper clients with a slew of salon and spa services that runs the gamut from manicures to facials to waxing. The boutique's pink-walled waiting area brims with portraits of Marilyn Monroe, just as her home was adorned with photos of Salon 345 and Spa.
Housed within Da Vinci Salon, Rebecca Stone Aesthetics aims to defy the skin-ravaging effects of time by restoring its clients' naturally youthful radiance. The facial treatments can incorporate specialized products from two separate lines—Ling and GlyMed—depending on the patron's skin type. In addition to cleansing and exfoliating the skin, these appointments can help minimize the appearance of blemishes, such as acne scars and rosacea. For a more advanced approach, the aestheticians use the center's diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands, wrinkle-reducing ultrasound system, or toning LED technology to generate dramatic, age-defying results.
