This dedicated team educates their clients on the importance of aesthetic maintenance while keeping exteriors looking shiny and new. Experienced aestheticians combat epidermal bullies, from acne to fowl-mouthed fine lines, with organic facials and microdermabrasion. Peepers find more definition with lash tinting and by banishing stray brow hairs with strip or stripless wax. Folsom's resident manicurist, Anna Marsaiq, tends to fingertips and toes with natural mani-pedi services and OPI gel polish, and the spa's massage practitioner, Jennifer Kinjo customizes each massage by combining traditional Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point modalities to create a nurturing experience. The modern space further instills a sense of calm with the contemporary artwork lining the walls and the chic paper lanterns illuminating the crimson-red and neutral-tan color scheme throughout the spa.
There are many ways to enjoy the soothing kneads that Angel Among You's massage therapist is known for. Therapist Angela Hetzel offers relaxation, deep-tissue, and trigger-point therapy massage. The latter is her specialty and not only helps relieve pain but also the symptoms of fibromyalgia. For anyone who can't make it into the studio due to busy schedules or their floor being turned into lava, Hetzel also offers mobile and corporate spa services at locations and offices throughout the area.
A pinched nerve. A tweaked muscle. An out-of-whack joint. For most people, these ailments represent an inevitable facet of the aging process; for massage therapist Karin Ward, they represent an opportunity for improvement. Karin uses her sessions to jumpstart the healing process with therapeutic bodywork learned over a 13-year career. Whether she's easing nagging pain with gentle Swedish strokes or targeting deeper discomfort with the help of soothing hot stones, Karin delivers treatments that leave her clients rested, relaxed, and ready to face the day's next challenge.
Danielle brings more than a decade of experience to her salon. She specializes in men's haircuts with hot-towel treatments and scalp massages that leave fellows looking dapper and relaxed, and she offers add-on services such as beard-detailing and line-ups. The chic ivory and black decor of Minx Salon & Spa creates a welcoming environment for men and women, as well as for grand pianos looking to hide from the law.
When muscles' fibers part ever so slightly, blood flows efficiently and healing begins. At Healing Arts Awareness, licensed massage therapist Rob Warfield creates this space within muscles by working across the fibers—a technique appropriately dubbed cross-fiber. Rob often integrates innovative methods such as cross-fiber strokes, acupressure (trigger-point work), and stretching into his massage therapy sessions, depending on whether his clients are sore from a tough week, experiencing the physical challenges of pregnancy, or dealing with chronic muscular disorders. And of course, Rob can also deploy these specialized maneuvers to boost the healing effects of more traditional Swedish, sports, and pregnancy massages. Relaxation and healing is furthered with the soothing sounds of tropical raindrops with crickets or oceanwaves crashing on shore.
When visitors walk into Dolce Vita Day Spa for the first time, it can be hard to stop staring. Gauzy curtains filter in the buttery, yellow light that dances off a full-wall mural of rocky cliffs jutting into the sea. Guests can further feast their eyes on private treatment rooms outfitted with invigorating orange walls, or Tuscan tiles, private tubs, and massage tables. They can choose from a bounty of treatments, creating a spa day with a loved one complete with champagne and couples' massages, pedicures, or facials. More targeted treatments include noninvasive anti-aging facials that turn back the clock with microdermabrasion, antioxidants, and youth-reviving story time.
