At Neha Threading Salon & Spa, Neha Gupta, a threading specialist and licensed cosmetologist who's worked in India and the United States for 18 years, leads a team of experienced aestheticians, technicians, and stylists. She invites customers to unwind and relax with a wide range of beautifying and soothing spa and salon services. Threading and waxing remove unwanted hair, sculpting brows along the way. Custom facial treatments cleanse pores and exfoliate complexions, rejuvenating them for another day in public or one final staring contest with the mirror. Full-body massages use modalities such as deep tissue or hot stones to alleviate aches or pains, whereas hair and nail services tend to heads, fingers, and toes.
The therapists at Mommie Massage Center focus their skills on mothers, expectant mothers, and other women who endure their fair share of stress. Their specialty—prenatal massage—relieves tension in the lower back and hips, where moms-to-be tend to experience the most pain. The therapists also offer foot and leg treatments that can alleviate water retention and reduce the appearance of varicose veins. Often they rely on special add-ons—aromatherapy scents, hot stones—to make the treatments that much more relaxing. In a bit of synergy, Mommie Massage Center is located inside of Little Bo Peep, Inc., where sonographers create 3D ultrasound images that tell mothers if their babies will in fact be born in three dimensions or will simply exist as a straight line on a sliver of graph paper.
Serenity and tranquility for each client: that's the goal of licensed massage therapist Terell Spencer, so it's no surprise she named her massage therapy business Serenity's Oasis. Massage services help reduce clients' stress and muscle tension and also boost circulation.
Soothing aromas calm clients' senses as they enter the tranquil waiting room of Serenity Wellness Studio, which houses Msprity Spa Luxuries. Founded in 2006, Msprity Spa Luxuries is the brainchild of owner Msprity, whose background in health care and special knowledge of sensitive skin informs each of the spa's customized treatments. In addition to skincare and facial services, the spa further relaxes clients with beauty treatments, body wraps, and massages. A range of products is also available so customers can maintain glowing skin at home, saving them the trouble of always holding flashlights under their chins.
It's been more than 30 years since Janna's Salon and Spa first opened its doors, but the skilled staff still keeps on pace with current trends. Their lengthy list of services includes natural-looking extensions, Reiki massage therapy, and raspberry enzyme skin treatments. Of course, clients can also find classic services like mani-pedis, bikini and Brazilian waxes, and formal up-dos for weddings, dances, or trips to the new invite-only dry cleaners.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
