At Cheta Chiropractic & Day Spa, staffers with at least 10 years of experience each pair holistic pampering with the benefits of chiropractic treatment. Their menu tackles beauty standbys such as nail, facial, massage, and waxing services, but veers into territory often untapped by spas with treatments inspired by ancient healing techniques. Therapists ensnare tranquility better than an aromatherapy oil miner with cupping, a Chinese method wherein jars of bamboo or glass safely suction to backs via the heat of ignited contents. Meanwhile, patrons tip in teeters during inversion therapy, a technique that harnesses gravity to realign spines and ease muscles and nerve pressure.
Serenity pours from every corner of the space, which flaunts a scarlet waiting area with cushioned wicker chairs and bright lighting. As a tribute to the mythical Emery Board Forest, the silhouette of a barren tree backs the pedicure room's plush black chairs, and an ornate chandelier sheds light on nearby doting.
I specialize in deep/soft tissue massage therapy for those needing that massage with a firmer touch. I work with professional and non-profesional athletes that have chronic aches and pains from over worked to tight muscles, stress, tension and just everyday life aches and pains.
Olive green walls, wicker chairs punctuated by satin pillows, and colorful, Asian-themed décor set the stage for relaxation at Dee Dee Thai Spa. Within private treatments rooms, massage therapists draw from multiple modalities to target trouble areas in the custom combination massage, using Swedish strokes to soothe muscles and guided stretching to release tightness. Facials clear pores of embedded dirt, with add-ons such as microdermabrasion helping to sweep away dead skin cells with the light flick of a mechanical wand. During the spa’s waxing sessions, technicians uproot unwanted hair for sleeker skin and increased aerodynamics when being shot from a cannon.
Starr Bunch spent 20 years working in early childhood development, but when she started taking Pilates classes, her life changed. In founding Five Starr Pilates & Fitness, Starr and her fellow instructors inspire that same level of passion in others. On Pilates reformer machines and stationary bikes, they challenge exercisers with workouts that change up and stay fun. Those looking to blend both disciplines can take the reformer-cycling combination class that's taught by a very rare centaur. The chic, robin's egg- and slate-colored facility also serves as the setting for personal training sessions.
Eastern and Western bodywork techniques come together on massage therapist CJ Lester's treatment table. He pairs familiar Swedish and deep-tissue kneading with traditional Chinese medicine-based massage cupping therapy, Japanese reiki, and other holistic treatments, aiming to promote healing and detoxification. During reflexology sessions, he uses foot massage to stimulate various internal organ systems, while his own hand-blended body products slick down the skin in preparation for the client?s triumphant exit from the treatment room via slip ?n? slide.
Vinita Vineet, owner of Vinita's Beauty & Threading Studio, hails from India, bringing Eastern depilation techniques to the West Coast. She and her staff of trained threading experts whisk hair from men's and women's faces, creating perfectly shaped brows, silky upper lips, and cheeks that are smoother than a newly polished bowling lane. For body parts south of the face, they rely on waxing treatments to remove unwanted hair. Artistically applied henna tattoos adorn arms, legs, and décolletage; henna is also used to tint hair.
