The hairstylists and aestheticians at Serendipity Salon & Spa dedicate themselves to making clients look and feel their best. They show this dedication with thorough consultations before they perform any haircut, color, or makeover services. That way, they can customize services to each client while learning about their deepest beauty desires.
Phyllynna Hurtubise?s nimble hands first got their training at the age of 16, when she suffered from constant headaches after a car accident. Phyllynna taught herself to alleviate her pain through self-massage, eventually honing this skill by practicing on her friends. Years later, a layoff gave her the opportunity to attend massage school, where she fell in love with healing people through the power of her touch.
While she enjoys relieving clients? stress, Phyllynna says her real passion is pain relief, since she knows what it feels like to have constant discomfort. To this end, she strives to eliminate pain at its source rather than masking it with medication. Within a private chamber furnished with earth tones and natural textiles, she works her clients' muscular structures, urging them to release stress and painful memories of jazzercise routines. A hot towel keeps feet warm and Lotus Touch lotions sweeten each stroke as she melds together techniques from varied modalities, depending on her client?s individual needs. Ever conscious of her clients' comfort, Phyllynna walks first-timers through the appointment before she begins and gives each guest a bottle of water afterward to help flush out toxins and extinguish any aromatherapy-candle contraband.
Wary of any one-size-fits-all prescriptions for increasing bodily well-being, Optimal Health?s owners, Adrian Butuc and Luminita Dobrea-Butuc, combine alternative medicine, spa treatments, fitness lessons, and gymnastics training to help clients transform into well-rounded?and healthier?individuals. Their medical massages help muscles recover from injury without the need for medication, and yoga and Pilates classes build muscle while improving balance. Adrian and Luminita believe that good health starts early?their preschool-gymnastics sessions help toddlers learn to tumble with grace under the tutelage of a former Romanian champion. The duo also understands that looking good is just as important as feeling good; in that vein, meticulous nail-grooming services keep fingers and toes looking good for sandal season or shadow-puppet productions of The Glass Menagerie.
Inside the bright, spacious salon, black leather chairs with bubbling foot basins line the walls facing a flat-screen TV while nail technicians pamper hands and feet with more than 15 different types of manicures and pedicures. According to the trained professionals at the spa, clients can have their feet treated to whirlpool action with a safe, NSF-certified PureFlo pipe-less jet. Massage therapists inject relaxation with custom kneads and an arsenal of aromatherapy scents, and private spa-party packages combine treatments with complimentary mixed drinks for birthdays, bachelorette parties, and secret Supreme Court justice outings.
At New Horizons Reflexology, a certified reflexologist applies pressure to specific points on the feet that correspond to various areas of the anatomy, such as the lower back, thyroid, or semicolon. This is referred to as reflexology, a holistic healing technique designed to relax, balance, and energize the body.
