Your heavyweight treatment includes a consultation, before-and-after shampoos, a cut, a rinse, and styling according to your personal preferences. Each weary head will be treated to a scalp massage and one nametag identifying it as "Movie Actor Harrison Ford."
Licensed massage therapist Lori Davis helms Massage by Lori, where she utilizes a variety of massage modalities to tend to individual needs. In a warm, private room, relaxing music plays as she uses the broad, rhythmic strokes of Swedish massage to help ease muscle tension and improve circulation. The focused pressure of deep-tissue massage penetrates lower layers of tissue, combating chronic pains, stress, or lingering pockets of swallowed gum. Other treatments include hot-stone massage, infrared-light treatments, and decompression treatments—also known as cupping. Lori's massages can help alleviate conditions such as back pains, tight muscles, inflexible joints, and witch curses.
