The bold and blocky treatment chairs fit right into a open and modernistic design scheme of G2 Salon, where Gentiana and Christopher Watts lead a trained team of stylists in performing haircare, facials, and bodycare treatments. The team performed hair and makeup services for many of the competitors in the 2011 Mrs. Massachusetts pageant, and they utilize Jealous haircare products with botanical extracts along with restorative L'anza products to keep each of their client's locks healthy. They offer specialty facials with pure essential oils, deep-exfoliating natural enzymes, and potent antioxidants to brighten skin while also improving tone and texture.
The licensed massage therapists at Bliss Massage Studio begin each treatment by applying Lotus Oil lotions and oils (and using a nut-free oil for clients with allergies) to muscles, limbs, and shoulders. It's an important step, since the oils help the therapists knead away stress with light-touch Swedish strokes and relieve pain with the more focused pressure of deep-tissue massage. The massages are a convenient way to escape from the pressures of work or school, especially since the studio offers 30-minute lunch-break massages and isn’t located in the center of the barren Siberian plain.
Armed with a toolbox of soothing techniques, the staff at TL Massage Therapy offers 10 different styles of massage and spa services. Inside private treatment rooms, therapists subdue stress by covering tense sinews with hot lava stones, aromatherapeutic essential oils, and kittens.
The stylists and aestheticians at Velvet Trim Hair Spa only rely on top-shelf beauty products. For hair, they trust L’Anza color. For faces, their masks and serums contain ingredients such as 24-karat gold and caviar. And for lips, Juvéderm plumps up pouts.
Nanda, The Pomegranate Tree's versatile massage therapist, pads her playbook of traditional massages with specialties in alternative modalities, such as craniosacral and reiki therapies. For each session, she welcomes clients into a softly lit room, where soothing music accompanies her focused strokes as she kindles relaxation with gentle Swedish massage techniques. The usui reiki teacher summons the body's energy during reiki sessions, which help promote a holistic wedding of the mind, body, and spirit. She also fosters healthy postures by easing spinal imbalances with craniosacral therapy.
Silvane Spalenza, head of SpaLenza at the Mansion, wants her clients to feel both comfortable and confident in her care. She's a certified massage therapist, licensed aesthetician, and trained in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy. And she leads her team of experts not from some generic, sterile spa, but from a warm and inviting mansion. Converted into a spa space, clients enter to be pampered with massages, mud wraps, facials, and even waxing treatments.
