As its name suggests, Mind & Body Care seeks to address both the aesthetic and emotional center of each guest who enters its cozy studio. The physical side of this goal finds fulfillment through the efforts of two technicians: Beth, a licensed and certified medical aesthetician with 10 years of skin care experience, and Lori, an aesthetician who pursued medical aesthetics after earning her license from Pivot Point Academy. Their areas of expertise echo the spa's offerings, which range from Swedish massage to medical-grade peels. Nails and tresses find creative shaping through the mastery of Elyse, an innovative hairstylist, and Arlette, a veteran nail artist with 18 years of experience.
Those seeking emotional respite can schedule wellness treatments with Bobbi, a former nurse whose 25 years of experience eventually led her toward more holistic therapies. Hypnotherapy, guided imagery, and EFT all take different paths in helping to rid clients of repressed traumas, harmful addictions, and subconscious negativity accrued from sleeping on pillowcases embroidered with curse words.
For more than 18 years, the team of licensed beauty specialists at JuliAnne’s Salon and Spa has been making men and women more winsome with a vast array of hair, skin, and nail treatments. Continuing education helps stylists to stay on top of cutting-edge haircut and color trends performed using quality products from brands such as Redken, Surface, and Pureology. Skincare services such as deep-cleansing facials and eye treatments are backed by paraben-free Bioelements tonics. Shellac, Opi, and Ibd nail lacquers are cured under L.E.D. lights to keep color shiny and leave tips resistant to chips, scratches, and cake frosting for up to two weeks. In addition to working their everyday makeover magic, the salon also hosts a private cache of wigs designed specifically for clients suffering from cancer or alopecia and offers free consultations to help customers to select the right piece for their particular needs.
Sunlight streams through floor-to-ceiling windows in the waiting room at Lift Laser & Body, where a trio of doctors oversees aesthetic treatments powered by cutting edge technology. These procedures range from natural-looking plastic surgery such as tummy tucks and breast enhancements to less invasive procedures. Noninvasive treatments include SkinTyte, which relies on broadband light to get clients firmer and younger looking skin. Lift Laser & Body also offers rejuvenating ProFractional laser treatments for faces that can make patrons look younger, much like not calling a MP3 player “walkman.”
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Ulta's licensed staff, which partakes in ongoing training to keep skills sharp, creates customized looks and expert image enhancement using acclaimed beauty products. Like a loaf of bread in a space shuttle with a broken sunroof, hairstyles can grow stale between salon visits. A 45-minute coif-cultivation session, in which the stylist takes into account face shape and lifestyle, energizes follicles and forges a salon-fresh look. In the one-hour Dermalogica facial, an aesthetic augur examines skin in order to customize a course of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing session with Dermalogica products. The treatment leaves skin impeccable, like a recently buffed and oiled slab of marble.
At Asha SalonSpa, aestheticians and massage therapists combine forces to ensure the whole-body well-being of clients. Spa services such as facials, microdermabrasions, and prenatal care coddle the corpus from head to toe, beginning with a neck pillow and cup of tea. At the salon, makeup and nail services revitalize faces and fingers, and hair treatments such as cuts and color rely on Aveda’s natural line of products. Asha also offers several massages, including deep-tissue, couples, and chakra-balancing modalities, allowing patrons to unwind without setting off their clockwork motors.
