As its name implies, High Maintenance Day Spa & Salon strives to meet the beauty demands of its most discriminating clientele with a comprehensive array of relaxing treatments. The spa’s stylists, nail technicians, tanners, and massage therapists continue to carry out the mission set forth by the Crims, who founded the spa in 2006 with the vision of a retreat from life’s hectic day-to-day routine. Indeed, the only stresses to be found amid the salon’s soft-hued tiffany-blue walls are those that arise when choosing which of the many services to indulge in. Couples massages make for romantic and relaxing experiences, waxing removes unwanted fuzz, and spray tans prepare bodies for playing hide-and-seek amid bronze garden sculptures. Before snipping their first locks or untying their first muscle knots, the staff establishes a relationship with each customer through friendly chitchat and an informal consultation.

"Massage is my passion," says Nick West, a licensed massage therapist who channeled his interest in physiology and his desire to help people into a worthwhile career. Prior to each session, which takes place in a warm, private room filled with soft music and the purr of a thousand kittens, he chats with clients to get a sense of their emotional, mental, and physical needs. This allows him to custom tailor their treatment, whether incorporating soothing Swedish strokes or targeted deep-tissue kneads to achieve the most effective results. Though happy to assuage general aches, Nick finds the greatest reward in helping those suffering from chronic-pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, and cancer.

A spread of complimentary beverages quenches palates before services begin while guests begin their journey to relaxation. Mediating Massage Wellness Studio offers a variety of nail care services ranging from short treatments to longer, luxurious treatments. Simple manicures and pedicures last from 15 to 20 minutes, while Lush manicures and pedicures last 30 to 45 minutes. Recently, the studio has added a new nail technician, Moe, who focuses primarily on waterless pedicures and natural nail care.
The studio also focuses on massage services. As one of the skilled massage therapists finishes up a current session, aromatherapy and soothing music waft through the air to help visitors decompress. Services, such as a signature holistic harmony massage typically combine both relaxing and therapeutic modalities.
