Par Exsalonce Salon & Spa CityScape coddles appendages with an array of luxurious manicures and pedicures in a vibrant, sunlit atmosphere. Presiding nail technician Vicki calls upon 25 years of experience to wrangle cuticles down to size and whittle nails into uniform squares or ovals. Each one-hour appointment concludes with an even application of polish to complement one’s unique style or favorite Gerhard Richter color chart. A vivid blue wall flanks the nail salon's cushioned manicure seats, and pristine white basins stand poised to receive feet beneath tufted pedicure chairs.
The trio of licensed massage therapists at The Art of Touch banish pain from clients' stressed muscles with a combination of therapeutic massage techniques. Staff member Christine draws on more than 10 years of industry experience to soothe her clients, and past KTVK 3 TV Healing Arts Specialist Lisa kneads tendons with powerful massage strokes. Tracy utilizes a number of massage disciplines, including deep tissue, Swedish, and myofacial, to uproot uncomfortable knots, making backs once again flexible and shoulders ready to demonstrate "shrugging" to curious jellyfish.
The practitioners at Just Breathe Wellness take a holistic approach to wellness, adding aromatherapy to their array of massage options and offering clients self-care tips to help alleviate discomfort. The center’s therapists perform modalities that include hot stone and deep tissue, along with specialized techniques such as Thai yoga, which focuses on aligning the spirit as well as the body. Just Breathe also promotes wellness with personal training programs, as well as corporate classes and workshops.
The practitioners at Phoenix Natural Medicine & Detox Center advocate healthy living through a range of drug-free, holistic therapies. Dr. Kathy Mohr-Almeida melds modern psychology with Native Mesoamerican healing traditions to help patients overcome emotional and spiritual obstacles, and Pat Honiotes helps clients lasso and hogtie fears and inhibitions with personal empowerment coaching. With Body Charger electrotherapy sessions, the energy experts encourage the proliferation of negative ions, which can bolster the immune system and encourage serotonin drips. The team's hydrotherapists purge inside tracts with colonic irrigation.
Massage practice located in the corporate district in downtown Phoenix. ProActive Therapeutic Massage is an independent member of a team of healers at Dynamic Pathways Wellness Center (see http://www.energeticpathways.com). It is not a day spa nor is it associated with any resort. Massages are corrective in nature.
As an Aveda salon, Salon Embellish amasses nourishing, plant-based Aveda products to fuel each of its beauty services. Natural and aromatic essential oils help therapists’ fingers glide over sore muscles during massage sessions, which can incorporate gentle or intense pressure, depending on the client’s needs. Gentle Aveda dyes maintain hair health during color treatments, and stylists can also repair previous damage by snipping off split ends or applying a restorative hair mask. Skin soaks up nutrients during a range of facial and body treatments, including a back facial that can make it look like you don’t even have a face on your back.
The New York City subway sign tacked up on the red brick wall tells visitors that they’ve finally arrived at Yankee Stadium. But instead of ballpark peanut shells, the ground is covered with locks of hair, and outside the Brooklyn Barbershop, New York City's skyscrapers have been replaced with the palmetto-fringed streets of central Phoenix.
Given the barbershop’s New York state of being, it comes as no surprise that the owners learned their trade as second-generation barbers in one of Brooklyn’s iconic barbershops before heading west. Now, they execute their combination of no-nonsense snips and fashion-conscious cuts in Phoenix. Specializing in men’s haircuts, the barbers deftly wield straight razors to spice up hair with cutting edge designs and amateur cartography. They also practice the art of the old-fashioned straight-razor shave, updated for modern stubble with a tea-tree infused hot-towel treatment and complimentary drinks on the weekend.
