Located on the first floor of a converted house in Ware, Peaceful Paths Massage Therapy is a calming massage studio with a licensed massage therapist onsite. In a quiet room with lots of natural sunlight, clients will have the knots in their necks, backs, and shoulders smoothed out under skilled hands.
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.
Skin Therapy owner Stacy Beaudoin only opens her spa on evenings and weekends, but during that time, she's laser focused on pampering her clients' skin and nails. As a licensed electrologist, she can remove unwanted hair permanently with electrolysis. Alternatively, she can wax away body hair, using heat-sterilized tweezers and a fresh stick for every application. She also nourishes and rehydrates skin with Bioelements facials and peels and beautifies nails with eco-friendly polish during indulgent mani-pedis.
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.
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.
