French countryside décor sheathes the nearly 3,000-square-foot beauty haven where nine spa rooms await clients in need of a facial, a chemical peel, or a medical microdermabrasion session. Out on the salon floor, a chorus of blow driers and shears hums "Flight of the Bumblebee" as friendly stylists color, cut, and straighten hair with Redken, Paul Mitchell, and Pureology products. Clients can also mist their skin with Bronze Biologic's UV-free airbrush-tanning solution, doll up peepers with Xtreme Lashes eyelash extensions, or extract unwanted strands with body-waxing services, which include Brazilian waxing for both women and men.
For more than four years, Ling Foot Spa has been luring guests through its doors with diverse styles of therapeutic massages. Clients may take a seat and let a therapist melt away tension in the feet or massage the back and shoulders as bodies rest in a specially designed chair. For full-body massages, clients sprawl out on tables to let experts unearth aches and pains with deep, hands-on strokes or the penetrating heat of warm stones. Ling Foot Spa also offers unique four-hand body-massages, which are administered by two skilled therapists to achieve more widespread relaxation, or by one skilled therapist to pay for his arm implants.
Whenever new clients enter Renew Face & Body Wellness, owner Penny Christie greets them with a smile and then just listens. It's only after she fully understands their goals that the aesthetician and massage therapist starts to work on a custom plan for treatment, which might incorporate facials or massage modalities such as hot stone. A certified prenatal therapist and mother of five, Christie also designs facials and massages for expectant mothers, which address many of the changes in the skin and body that can accompany pregnancy. During the A Star Is Born prenatal massage, her signature treatment, she kneads sore muscles and loose joints as clients lie face-down on a special table that supports the baby and all of his or her prenatal furniture.
