After walking through the front door to Healing in Harmony Wellness Center, the delicate fragrance of essential oils is the first thing that welcomes a visitor in, followed by earth-tone walls and friendly healers. Each member of the team works with clients to help overcome their health problems through an array of services that touch on massage, facials, reiki healing, and other therapies. With a menu of massage modalities and cupping techniques, clients have many options to choose from, such as the Soul massage, which incorporates reiki into soothing strokes and carefully applied pressure. To ensure clients also feel better on the outside, the staff performs aesthetic services including facials and nail services.
Areté's staff of beautifying specialists pampers customers from widow's peak to big toe with a full assortment of salon services. Haircuts for men ($20) and women ($35) tame stray strands after stylists consult patrons about whether to shape hairdos into trendy new styles or fully functioning birds' nests. Feather extensions with tinsel ($20+) imbue manes with the radiance of a fireproof phoenix, and waxing services ($8+) sculpt overgrown keratin patches. A spa pedicure ($45) tidies up digits, preparing feet for glass-slipper fittings or high-pressure auditions to play hands in a Broadway play. Areté eases the experience of waiting by occupying guests with complimentary WiFi access and television.
Though Runway Hair Salon isn't on an actual runway, its expert stylists create designs that could star in fashion shows. That's because they stay up-to-date on trends and use sought-after products including Brazilian Blowout to grant their clients trend-setting looks. They also offer spa services such as waxing and mani-pedis that complement cuts and highlights and pamper clients with packages that include makeup applications.
The nail technicians at Hair It Is pamper fingers and toes with relaxing manicures and pedicures. Each 30-minute stand-alone mani commences with a hand soak, then pushes back cuticles once they've softened and let down their guard. Files whittle nails into shapely ovals, squares, or rhombuses, and a lotion-laden massage hydrates thirsty wrists, palms, and knuckles. A fresh coat of polish gives fingertips a stylish new hue to match favorite outfits, a new car, or pet betta fish. A luxurious 90-minute mani-pedi combo applies the same treatments above to both mitten and sock residents, in addition to applying a soothing warming mask before the lacquer application.
The expert aestheticians at Reviva Spa and Beauty Boutique bring about epidermal bliss with a wide range of facials and spa services. The de-pore cleansing treatment targets particularly pesky spots, unclogging pores filled with face-dulling makeup, oil, and war paint. Alternatively, the radiance facial deploys a skin-sloughing peel, cleansing the face's top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, younger looking façade. Customers can pair the skin-renewing powers of the detox facial, which uses natural products to fight build up, with a 60-minute massage that leaves patrons as relaxed as a monk in a terry cloth robe.
