Outside Salon Zero’s second-story windows, palms and tall trees sway as stylists feather strands of hair through fingers for a precise clip or color hair using ammonia-free products. Because it's a fume-free salon, they accomplish their services without shrouding clients in a cloud of chemicals, which can cause teary eyes or Toxic Avenger sequels. During consultations they hope to inspire clients to avoid such harmful chemicals, educating them on healthy alternatives. Their services range from infusing hair with vitamins while expunging built-up minerals and chlorine left behind by damaging hair products to massaging botanical-based Phyto Phytopolleine universal scalp elixir into craniums, treating dry or oily conditions. Their nail techs perform mani-pedis with a soy-based polish remover, and aestheticians brush low-temperature, all-natural wax along faces to eliminate unwanted hair and soften skin. The team can also take their chemical-free ways to weddings or photo shoots with on-location services.
Whatever maladies clients are suffering from, the staff at Tampa Bay Bodyworks wants to help its visitors achieve their wellness goals. To do so, therapists specialize in various modalities of massage, ranging from deep tissue for tight muscles to gentle bodywork for relaxation. They also offer therapeutic rehabilitation for clients recovering from injury, zeroing in on muscular and skeletal conditions stemming from auto accidents, sports mishaps, and work-related aches.
Occupying 22 sprawling acres of Tampa Bay coastline, Safety Harbor Resort & Spa combines the leisure of a luxury resort with the peaceful release of a day spa. A pack of 10 resort day passes provides unlimited access to the 50,000 square feet of recently renovated resort, spa, and fitness facilities for a full face-wallop's worth of relaxation. Three pools offer aquatic opportunities for every temperament. A fitness center is stocked to the muscle-bound rafters with cardio and weight equipment, and group classes take place daily, with 78 classes available each week. Clean and spacious men's and women's locker rooms give guests a chance to wind down in privacy after schvitzing within the confines of a sauna or steam room. The 10 passes can be used by one person over the course of 10 separate days, or shared with nine companions chanting "number nine" in a vaguely British monotone.
Heather S. Kuczer's career was inspired by her experiences as a chronic back- and neck-pain sufferer. After years of trying to cover up her symptoms with medication, she decided to explore alternative forms of treatment and soon found herself pursuing her massage license in order to help others find relief from pain, anxiety, and stress. In 1996 she started Safety Harbor Therapeutic Massage Center, where she is now joined by a group of licensed, experienced massage therapists who also dole out relaxing treatments such as aromatherapy massage and warm footbaths. The center's specialties are naturally geared toward therapeutic work including neuromuscular and sports massages, which focus on soothing the ails of consummate athletes and soccer balls tired of being kicked around.
Peace of Mind?s aestheticians help clients see immediate skincare results with little to no downtime. Painless treatments such as nonsurgical face-lifts use microcurrent technology to tighten skin tone, whereas classic facials and chemical peels help unveil bright, youthful complexions hiding beneath dull dead skin cells or several weeks' worth of dried marinara sauce. Licensed massage therapists perform reflexology massage on the feet, focusing on specific points to relieve tension throughout the body.
