From rehabilitating muscles after an injury to giving a stressed client an hour of instant R & R, Neva Massage Center’s licensed massage therapists are led by certified therapists Leonid–trained in both Europe and America– and Iryna, a medical doctor in Russia. They tailor a range of modalities to every sort of need. Their classic long and smooth Swedish massage shoos away stress lingering between muscles, like a vacuum cleaner shoos away a dog that loves a good dirty carpet. They apply deep-tissue therapy’s concentrated pressure to injuries or points of chronic pain, whether in the head, neck, or back. Neva's therapists can also target muscle spasms, insomnia, edema, and depression with their meticulous kneads. They take relaxation a step further with hot stones, warm towels, and therapeutic scents, and they lengthen their clients’ “me time” with 90-minute extended massages.
After beginning with six modest traditional beds in 1990, Tropical Tan has expanded its body-bronzing pursuits to include 24 UV- and spray-tanning units housed within a pristine, violet boutique. Reflecting the salon's commitment to client comfort, UV beds combat claustrophobia with wide openings and display an intuitive control panel that empowers guests to program their preferred shade. Airbrush consultants dispense personalized tips for UV-free tanners, along with directions for navigating the Norvell sunless spray-tanning booth's passage into Narnia. The salon also stocks body products from brands such as CalTan, Designer Skin, Australian Gold, MR International, and Swedish Beauty, which condition skin to deepen and sustain new hues.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I've always been interested in skincare. I have a six-year degree in chemistry, and because esthiology required a lot of scientific knowledge, I decided to combine them. I started my skincare business in 1995.
Out of your entire repertoire, which is your favorite service to perform and why?
My favorite service to perform is custom essential facial, because I can approach each customer personally and perform the best service according their needs.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
One of my clients of 19 years referred her best friend to try my services recently. After the appointment was completed, she said that she would yell at my client for not referring her much earlier.
Sunlight streams through tall windows onto Tranquility Spa Salon's commodious facility, where beauty specialists flex their expertise to spiff up clients' appearances. Inside, cushy thrones and domesticated clouds cosset patrons as stylists craft new hairdos, manicurists adorn nails, and massage therapists soothe muscles. Multitalented aestheticians offer a variety of traditional and trendy services, from waxing and facials to lash extensions and chemical peels. Throughout the space, distressed woodwork and rustic wall art exude a shabby-chic aesthetic.
The stylists at Merrill Hair Designers, Inc. strive to heal damaged strands with chlorine- and mineral-removal treatments that restore hair's resilience and shine. Working with a fresh slate, the team can then consult with clients to settle on a new look. For instance, a Brazilian Blowout could smooth out frizz for straighter locks, or extensions can add length more efficiently tying barbells to each strand. To help friends find a flattering cut, clients can even throw a group party complete with pastries and beverages.
The salon also offers nail and spa services, from acne-fighting facials to therapeutic massages. Every skincare package, whether it's an oxygen facial with fruit enzymes or a chemical peel, is highly customized to suit specific skin types.

Salon clients can also receive a partial foil session to add depth and vibrant color to hair, have a EuroShine blow-dry impart volume and perfect straightness, or get a facial or mani-pedi session to look all-over polished and professional.
