The staff at Heavenly Healing Hands Massage Therapy strive to deliver the most pampering massage possible, corralling comforting indulgences such as soft-topped, heated massage tables or a warmed neck roll. The décor of this one-room oasis located in Beachwood is inspired by Georgia's picturesque Tybee Island, with sky-blue walls and sand-colored curtains that call to mind the relaxing seascape. Beside bowls overflowing with colorful seashells lie smooth stones that massage therapists often heats and incorporates into treatments to help loosen tension or keep suddenly stress-less bodies from floating away.
At Yelena Skin Care Salon, the only things that shine brighter than the lobby's gilded picture frames and golden wall accents are the glowing complexions that flow forth from candle-lit treatment rooms. There, technicians customize facials to minimize redness or diminish signs of aging, incorporating products by Murad or blemish-targeting light therapy, and doling out relaxing upper-body massage and warm mitts and booties for hands and feet. Body-care treatments range from soothing Swedish massages to sea-salt scrubs that leave skin soft and hydrated, while Yelena's staff can also wax away unwanted hairs, leaving legs and brows as smooth as a dolphin's silk pajamas.
The 21st Century Nails staff has been pampering digits for more than a decade, transforming blank keratin sheets into shiny tips with a variety of polish hues. In addition to regular polish, the staff utilizes Shellac, Gelish, and OPI gel nail polish designed to last up to three weeks. A UV LED lamp dries nails in 30 seconds, allowing patrons to more quickly test out the Shellac’s chip protection by challenging the nearest prizefighter to a game of patty cake.
Morada Mueller followed a few different career paths before ending up at her true vocation: massage therapy. After stints in the worlds of business and higher education, she felt a need to help people on a deeper, more personal level. Massage presented itself as the answer, and Morada has never looked back.
Her clients are certainly grateful for this. They flock to Morada’s private Beachwood studio, where she soothes their aching bodies with gentle Swedish strokes. Light music sets the mood as Morada customizes her pressures to individual preferences, using warm oil or steamy chicken soup to aid her bodywork when necessary.
With 25 years’ experience finishing nails and making her own products, owner Roza takes a natural approach to nail treatments. Shellac's combined base coat and topcoat establish a symbiotic relationship with UV light, curing without the need for drying. With about 12 shades to choose from, clients get their digit medallions coated with a thin protective layer whose resilient finish can be expected to last two to three weeks. Unlike other dapper hand décor, this Shellac application involves no buffing, leaving patrons with no damage to nails and the ability to finger-pick banjos in stunning style.
