As a spin instructor, triathlete, and marathoner, Sandy Sulikowski knows about postworkout aches. So does Danni Lewis, a personal trainer. The two are not only athletically-minded, but also licensed massage therapists. They are joined by fellow licensed massage therapist Tyler Langill at Peak Performance Therapeutic Massage, where they provide pain and stress relief to clients. They offer everything from sports massages for competitors like themselves to gentle Swedish and hot-stone massages to deep-tissue massages, which rely on heavier pressure to break down tension in low-lying muscles. They offer a variety of other services as well, including reiki, polarity therapy, and reflexology, which soothe clients from the inside out.
Operating out of Curl Up and Dye, stylist Taylor Doyon offers a respite from bad hair days with a repertoire of face-flattering cut and coloring services. Taylor utilizes product brands, such as Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Matrix, to cultivate subtle or bold highlights. Or, she can help clients get ready for a special occasion with updo hairstyles and shellac manicures that imbue long-lasting color and shine. Clients are also free to explore the salon's other specialties, which include waxing, Eurobronze tanning, or feather hair extensions, which are a growing trend amongst bald eagles.
The professionals at A New Leaf Salon & Spa provide beauty and massage services in a peaceful surrounding. As natural light pours into the large windows, stylists remove split ends and add vibrant color to hair. Nail technicians meticulously groom fingers and toes, and skincare specialists cleanse pores and remove dead cells to reveal glowing skin. After clients enjoy a glass of wine or warm cup of tea, massage therapists and reiki practitioners diffuse tension and improve range of motion with reiki sessions, deep-tissue work, or heated-stone massages.
Though licensed massage therapist Julie Arbogast runs the show alone at Touch of Serenity, she tackles a wide scope of ailments related to stress or injury. She draws upon years of experience as she practices gentle modalities such as Swedish and prenatal massage, as well as hot-stone treatments that help to melt tension and ice-cream headaches. Deep-tissue massages soften overused muscles, increasing range of motion and decreasing pain.
At A Handful Salon, the staff believes that beauty does not come without wellness. Therefore, their extensive list of gel, hot-stone, mango, and detoxifying manicures and pedicures is joined by healing services such as an infrared massage bed.
