After exhausting a list of doctors to alleviate debilitating migraines, Esther Rocha turned to massage therapy. The results were so astounding that Esther quit her job as a quality control inspector and enrolled in massage therapy school. Not at the helm of her own business, Esther specializes in tension headache massages and chronic pain-relieving deep-tissue techniques. She is also a licensed esthetician, and refreshes clients’ mugs with custom facials and full face waxings.
As both a licensed esthetician and massage therapist, Sandra has relaxation in the bag. She customizes each European facial to one?s skin type, and erases signs of aging with microdermabrasion scrubs and chemical peels. To soothe muscles, Sandra performs long, fluid Swedish strokes or quickly loosens knots with expedited chair massages. Sandra also offers a variety of waxing services for clients, including Brazilian.

Before even picking up a pair of scissors, Harriet Yousefzadeh lets her clients do the talking. She listens to their image goals, assesses their lifestyle, and finally analyzes the texture and condition of their hair before going to work. From there, she cuts, colors, and styles hair, all the while doling out helpful advice regarding the latest trends and helpful hair products. Harriet works out of Mosaic Salon, a full-service beauty enterprise specializing in hair and makeup services, mani-pedis, and massage.
