Mantrap Professional Hair Salon's stylists team up with nail technicians, a massage therapist, and a men's hair-replacement specialist, to offer an impressive slate of services. Male and female manes get beautified with shampoo, cut, and coloring services, and men can accentuate sideburns with a beard trimming. Massages and facials soothe the minds and bodies of patrons, hand and foot treatments make way for beautified nails and relaxed digits, and waxing treatments rid skin of unwanted hair.
The body is a beautiful structure, and as a licensed massage therapist, Ronald Bruinius views himself as a humble tool to keep it running smoothly. In the comfort of a private room, Ronnie can coax away aches with flowing Swedish strokes or call on firm deep-tissue pressure to access lower-layer muscles, or "fascia." Clients can also induce relaxation with prenatal bodywork, trigger-point therapy, or the foam-finger kneading of a sports massage.
Essentials Massage & Facials' Spa professionals relax weary bodies with a collection of therapeutic services. Soothing massages employ a collection of kneads, strokes, and manipulations to reduce tension and disentangle body knots, with luxurious add-ons such as paraffin treatments and aromatherapy. The skin-savvy techs also rid frames of unwanted stubble with waxing services, smooth out wrinkles with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and soften countenances with professional skincare products during facials.
With such a talented staff, Largo Salon & Spa has split the team in two experience levels. Regular and master stylists unleash Redken and Scruples products during haircuts and coloring services. They also twist hair into updos, french braids, and pretzel knots. Standard and master wax techs tend to face and body fuzz, and master techs blast through acne and oil with facials.
The licensed massage therapists at Massage Advantage dote on visitors with a slew of custom massage techniques, including Swedish, prenatal, and deep tissue. Armed with warm blankets and a credo to respect patients' privacy, therapists begin each 30- or 60-minute session with a discussion on clients' specific aches and ailments. Therapists can also haul their equipment to office buildings for workplace chair massages that help reinvigorate fatigued employees or stressed-out water coolers during 5–15 minute stints. Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.
GX Program keeps its weight-loss clients on track through daily interaction. After signing up and working with a physician to set goals and outline a nutrition program, each client is paired with a health counselor who counsels them daily on the phone, discussing health, eating habits, exercise, and stress levels. With this information, the counselor consults the GX Program's health experts to craft a personalized fitness regimen. Counselors educate their charges on effective workout techniques and healthy, easy-to-make meals that use common ingredients rather than kelps that only grow at the bottom of Mariana Trench, offering daily encouragement to lose pounds and keep them off.
