Certified reflexologist Jonny Zhang knows your feet like the back of her hand. By using natural pressure points, her pain-relieving reflexology techniques can alleviate lower-layer aches that are generally inaccessible through traditional methods. This bodywork can be tailored to clients' unique needs and is an ideal solution for arthritis, allergies, migraines, constipation, menopausal pain, and cravings for chicken nuggets in the shape of a foot. She also focuses on managing constipation and reducing swelling in feet, ankles, and legs.
Voted Best of Westchester for four years by Westchester Magazine, Euro Laser Services' skilled laser technicians rid legs of unsightly veins using the Candela GentleYag laser. During one-hour laser spider-vein-removal treatments, technicians direct a beam of high-intensity light that damages veins without disrupting neighboring skin-cell encampments. This purposeful damage causes veins to develop scar tissue that cuts off their life-giving blood flow, allowing dysfunctional veins to naturally break down within the body like a cookie within a milk-filled blender. Patients may experience slight discomfort during the procedure, so the friendly technicians are prepared with chilly compresses to quell any pain. Patients can also distract themselves throughout the treatment by watching a show or counting the pixels on the treatment room's television.
B Spa & Salon likes to party. The beauty hub opened in 2010 with a gala event attended by industry insiders and Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer, and since then its representatives have frequented events such as the F. A. B. philanthropic party. But while the spa maintains a high profile, its primary concern isn't its own image, but those of its clients. That's why its aestheticians rely on more than 10 facial cocktails and advanced facial treatments, such as microcurrent therapy and LED lights, to promote healthy complexions. It's also why the aestheticians perform both organic sugaring and traditional waxing to deplete the body’s hair supply. Like a daytime TV judge, the salon is good at straightening things out; stylists tame unruly strands with keratin treatments from Coppola and Brazilian Blowout.
It's appropriate that the most luxurious spa package at Dream Spa & Salon—which includes an aromatherapy steam shower, a facial, a detoxifying body treatment, a Swedish massage, and a mani-pedi—is named Cloud Nine. Apart from the bliss that name suggests, it also encapsulates the spa’s airy, serene, and cushioned ambiance, which follows guests through private rooms during personalized services. Even the decor, captures the simple elegance of a floating cloud with see-through glass and white orchids on the tables that contrast with soothing gray tones throughout the spa and salon.
Owner and beauty-industry veteran Lori Dodd has a penchant for this type of attention to detail and forward-thinking sophistication. To complement her spa’s streamlined design there is the ultra-comfortable dream lounge with reusable beverage containers, and a decreased reliance on paper for menus. On the salon side of the venue, her hairstylists likewise believe in attractive minimalism and shy away from overcomplicating their cuts, colors, and texturing treatments. Yet the staff's emphasis on a clean aesthetic doesn't deny lavish procedures. Every facial at Dream Spa & Salon includes an essential-oil-infused steam, and guests can benefit from a dreamy shower, included with every massage experience. The team also bronzes clients with even, natural-looking tans via the Suvara spray-tan system.
When readers of Greenwich Magazine set out to name the best facial and waxing services in town, they chose Celia B. Skin Care. Since opening in 2004, the skincare center and its owner, Brazilian native Celia Brito, have earned those particular accolades on four separate occasions. Waxing services, which can be applied to a wide range of areas and are available in several packages, are made even more impressive with the optional sugaring: an alternative to waxing that produces the same results while being gentler, safer, and more familiar to the noses of giant ants. Celia B.'s signature facial combines European and Brazilian techniques, like a diplomatic mission for the skin, and the teen facial helps foster great skincare and hygiene habits.
Studio director Simona Cipriani, like all the instructors at The Art of Control, trained under Romana Kryzanowska, who studied directly under Joseph Pilates himself. The studio, therefore, prides itself on being not only certified, but a direct ideological descendant of Pilates' very inventor.
Many clients come to The Art of Control to take part in group or private lessons, and particularly advanced students can get specialized independent instruction. More than one type of Pilates is practiced at the studio. In mat Pilates, participants work through routines atop their own colorful rectangles, and in reformer Pilates, the Pilates-proprietary workout machines provides resistance to counter participants’ movements, creating an additional strength-training element to build strength and muscle definition. Other classes may incorporate props, such as bands, wedges, and rubber chickens wearing novelty-size sunglasses. Feldenkrais and Zumba classes also speckle the calendar, and teacher-training programs prepare students to teach. Personalized nutrition programs and massage therapy further spoil bodies and increase health. The Art of Control also hosts and participates in events and workshops.
To restore balance to their clients' body and minds, the team at Parapsychology & Wellness Center draws on many disciplines, including reiki therapy, aura purification, and astrology. Staff members also perform many types of readings. For instance, they might use tarot cards to look 6–12 months into the future, draw on numerology to reveal lucky numbers, or administer a character reading to help clients learn more about themselves, like whether or not they can actually lick their elbow.
