Massage therapist and cosmetologist Carrie Armes owns the aptly named Carried Away Salon & Spa, and she oversees a friendly team of beauty and relaxation experts who provide custom services for their clients. From haircuts and color treatments that best suit the client's complexion, to facials that target oily, dry, or mossy skin, each pampering session is unique.
Licensed massage therapist Michele Kerrigan unearths the silver linings in achy muscle clouds with her soothing bodywork. Guests can request deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer muscles, or flowing Swedish strokes for relaxation-based healing. Massages may be paired with indulgent add-ons such as aromatherapy or cleansing sugar scrubs that exfoliate the complexion.
The staff at The 212 Salon work to re-energize and refresh guests with hot stone massages, nail services, and an infrared sauna. Stylists use highlighting and perming techniques to transform the color and texture of tresses while aestheticians smooth complexions with three types of facials. Nails can also be altered into a better version of themselves after technicians file and buff the digits before coating with a chip-resistant shellac polish or adding length with tips. Along with hosting ladies nights and birthday parties, the salon pampers clients with makeup tips using hypoallergenic Tigi Cosmetics as well as keeping their retail area stocked with hair care from Aquage, Joico, and Kenra.
Dr. Curtis Hoyt and the team of licensed massage therapists at Troy Chiropractic Wellness & Massage Center ease uptight muscles with a selection of body-balancing services. Massage-seeking clients recline for a muscle kneading that proceeds with the long, gentle strokes of the relaxation method or the firmer pressure necessary for unfurling deep-tissue tangles. Chiropractic and decompression treatments unfurl corkscrewed spines and attempt to alleviate the chronic pains associated with degenerative disc disease. Specialized decompression tables send pulses through spines as a computer targets nerves pinched while exercising or discs scratched during overzealous DJ sets.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Gwendolyn Shafer, owner of Signature Day Spa, pampers skin with European-style treatments beneath the spa's hanging art and cascades of natural light. The multivitamin facial harnesses gentle Dermalogica products to tighten sagging epidermises, reduce hyperpigmentation, and help patrons win over stern canine officers. Dull facades bathe in a purifying cleanser before a multivitamin scrub exfoliates and nourishes skin. Aestheticians evict stubborn blackheads, oil, and dirt during the pore extraction process and soothe patrons with a gentle neck and shoulder pressure-point massage. Cleansed countenances retreat under the blanket of a multivitamin mask, emerging with improved levels of collagen and elasticity. Finally, the skin virtuoso applies a moisturizer that leaves faces beaming like a clown-college valedictorian.
