At Relax the Body Salon & Spa, treatments center on the client's needs rather than a display of technique. A nationally certified massage therapist heeds muscular complaints with customized strokes, ousting tension with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities. Meanwhile, facials strive to nurture pores with a combination of masks, warm towels, and inspiring bedtime stories such as the Cleft Chin that Could.
A chandelier sparkles over stylist Alicia's clients at Attache Salon while she cuts, colors, and conditions their hair. The salon's earth-toned palette adds warmth to the surroundings, weaving throughout the patterned armchairs, hardwood floors, and full-length, black-framed mirrors.
The licensed nail stylists at Essence Nails & Spa maintain a full-service nail salon brimming with six cushy spa pedicure chairs and ample finger-pampering workstations. Basins of warm water beckon hands and feet for a pretreatment soak before busy files trim back encroaching cuticles, slough dead skin, and shape nails back into their natural retractable form. Lotion enrobes arms and legs during a relaxing massage, and OPI polish slathers nails with sturdy chromatic color.
