Warm vibes permeate the air at Morgan Ford Salon & Spa, where stylists shape fashionable hairdos and massage therapists knead away soreness and stress. The salon takes extra steps to assure clients' comfort. For example, each hair treatment?which utilizes Redken products?includes a steamed face towel, scalp massage, shampoo, and conditioning. Morgan Ford's massage therapists practice hot-stone, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release modalities, among other techniques. These bodywork sessions may also incorporate extras, such as heat therapy, aromatherapy oils, and scents, such as chocolate, pumpkin spice, or mango.
Licensed massage therapist Michelle Francis, owner of Take a Moment 4 U, believes in the healing power of taking a moment to relax. That's why she offers a range of 60 to 90 minute massage sessions including Swedish, therapeutic, aromatherapy, and warm-stone massage. Along with massage, Francis also pampers her clients with body scrubs, spa manicures and pedicures, and essential-oil body wraps.
Eight therapists and one esthetician man an intimate neighborhood practice in southern St. Louis, relaxing clients inside a sunny storefront with three treatment rooms or bringing their chairs to corporate events and parties. The team capably treats varying conditions by employing a host of modalities, including deep-tissue massage for chronic pain, prenatal massage for mother-and-child wellness, and hot-stone massage for slowly immunizing the body against magma. They also offer wide variety of spa, body treatment, facial services, and waxing treatments. As the pressure of thumbs penetrates the skin, body treatments, such as the seaweed-algae mask and the Dead Sea?mud mask, replenish dermal surfaces with organic goodies and help revitalize all of the body's tissues.
Visitors are sometimes caught off-guard by what would appear to be Tuscan Sky Hair Salon’s lack of a roof. When they look more closely, however, they see not the sky but an extensive mural painted with cascading rays of sunlight. Were this sunlight real, it would reflect brilliantly off the salon’s polished hardwood floor, where stylists bustle about as they craft sleek looks with cuts, bold highlights, and deep-conditioning treatments. The salon’s services don’t stop at the scalp. Waxing treatments swiftly remove peach fuzz, and massages ease tension as effectively as a whoopee cushion at a budget debate.
Sunflower Massage Studio isn't just a relaxing refuge from the everyday?as a local business, it's also a refuge from the revolving-door approach of chain massage studios. This means that in addition to a tension-relieving massage, customers get a bounty of other thoughtful amenities, such as a 30-minute buffer zone before and after the massage to give client and therapist time to wind down and discuss the session. It also means the therapists won't pressure their clients to choose a massage modality, as every session is customized to their individual needs. Of course, add-ons such as hot stones and aromatherapy are available, as well as specialty styles such as prenatal, myofascial-release, and sports massage, which helps athletes' muscles recover from sporting events and emotions recover from tense exchanges with referees.
At A Healing Place Massage for Wellness, there's a special focus on the lymphatic system. Using standard modalities such as Swedish and deep tissue, the staff takes care of clients with relaxing techniques that calm the body. Therapists can also loosen tissue and relieve pain by practicing myofascial-release therapy, a blend of massage and stretching. Inspired by the lavender fields of France, the soothing scent of the flower permeates the air to relax clients, and everything from the walls to the products are splashed with a lavender hue.
