Whether clients are looking for the right new hair color or a quick touch-up manicure, the staff at Goshia’s Hair and Nail Designs executes hair and body care with professional results. The day spa’s licensed massage therapists use custom techniques to meet each person’s muscular needs, from relaxing hot-stone massages to deep-tissue kneads. Spa packages combine hair, massage, and skincare into relaxing sessions up to five hours long, and waxing treatments remove unsightly fuzz. For each treatment, staff members consult with clients on their treatment of choice, ensuring haircuts complement facial features and pedicures shape nails only as talon-like as the client prefers them.
Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.
Shelby Frederick, a licensed massage therapist, has a repertoire of nine massage modalities, which she uses skillfully to knead away aches and ease tension. Each of these treatments, which include Swedish and hot-stone massages, can be supplemented with paraffin dips, sugar scrubs, and other add-ons. Though most of Shelby's massages focus on relaxation, she can also work to alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, sciatica, or back pain caused by your habit of riding a pogo stick to work in the morning. To treat these conditions, she works closely with clients' doctors, chiropractors, or physical therapists to complement the medical treatment plans already in place.

Home to the state's largest freestanding bouldering island, New Jersey Rock Gym houses 12,000 square feet of vertical terrain to climb as well as 41 top roping stations. Armed with either day passes or membership, guests scamper up the gym's synthetic summits, hoping to ask questions of the learned ceiling light sequestered at the top of the mountain. While gear is included with some membership options, guests can opt to bring their own materials or rent the individual shoes ($5), harnesses ($4), or chalk bags ($2) they need from the pro shop. New Jersey Rock Gym offers a collection of educational course work in the vertical arts, teaching belay technique to beginners or advanced skills to adults. Children can also take advantage of youth climbing programs, mini camps, and birthday parties before retiring to private refreshment chambers to absorb bottles of electrolyte-infused refreshment. The nearby pro shop outfits climbers with name-brand gear for purchase, while a WiFi lounge transmits terabytes of data into nearby electronic devices or unsecured cyborg brains.
