Sarah L. Schoolcraft, a licensed massage therapist who honed her skills at Mountain State School of Massage, has been in practice for more than 10 years. At Well Balanced Massage Therapy, she dissolves stress and promotes healing with techniques that range from deep-tissue kneading to gentle, soothing strokes tailored for elderly patients. Detoxifying wraps, herbal facials, and other beautifying treatments complete the spa experience.
Although stylist Megan Pelfrey shares her expertise with future stylists as a beauty instructor, her skills really shine at Salon 909. Here, she draws on her training at Paul Mitchell School when performing designer cuts, Aveda color treatments, and hair extensions. As a cosmetologist, her talents surpass hair alone; she also cleans out pores with facials and clears away unwanted hair with waxing.
Amid taupe and lavender walls, Studio 11 Salon and Day Spa's staffers groom physiques head to toe with a suite of pampering services. Licensed aestheticians perform a dozen facial treatments, dousing skin in rejuvenating products to help to remedy fine lines, uneven or dull skin tone, and ill-timed lycanthropy. Nail technicians meticulously trim and shape talons, and hairstylists diligently shampoo tresses at salon stations as clients crane their necks to spot the Magic-Eye picture hidden in a nearby oriental rug.
