Jeni gave up a career in business to pursue her passion for helping people overcome pain and emotional stress. She attained her massage therapist’s license and set up shop at Massage Therapy by Jeni, where she specializes in numerous modalities. Alongside standards such as Swedish, deep tissue, and pregnancy, Jeni offers Deluxe Detox Relaxation massages that use essential oils, foot wraps, and reflexology to keep the mind from spinning in circles chasing its own brain stem. For those experiencing pain, she uses hot and cold therapies—combined with therapeutic massage—to bring relief to the affected areas.
At Natural Nail Care Salon, manicures are both a soothing indulgence and a step toward healthier hands. The technicians conduct mani-pedi services for natural nails exclusively, grooming and buffing them with Swedish Mavala products that enhance nails' flexibility and strength. Just as the techs avoid artificial nails, their products eschew synthetics: Mavala formulas contain no harsh chemicals, and the salon's Essie and Zoya polishes are formaldehyde-free. Clients sit at a sprawling nail bar that seats up to nine for hand treatments, then retire to pedicure chairs, where stainless-steel foot tubs ensure clean soaks. The attention of the seasoned staff often ensures that polish stays bright for weeks on end, instead of flaking when anxious friends ask to borrow nails for biting.
Nails may be the salon's focus, but each technician also boasts an additional specialty. Salon owner Jessica Stannard channels her hairstyling background with cut, color, and texturizing treatments, and licensed aesthetician Amanda Ancell nourishes complexions. Amanda's facials and chemical peels use personalized combinations of products based on the client's skin type and conditions, and each treatment includes a massage to relieve muscular tension around the cheekbones. The spa menu also includes waxing, eyelash extensions, and permanent-makeup applications.
