The savvy, dedicated staff at Sabatelli's Golden Salon & Day Spa helps customers achieve sun-kissed skin by coating their bodies in a UV-free tanning solution fortified with antioxidants and pure botanicals. The darkening concoction utilizes Infinity Sun technology, which atomizes various treatment lotions into a mist that precisely anoints epidermises with an even-toned hue over the course of 15 minutes. The procedure affords the opportunity to choose the preferred shade of tan and solution type. A bronze solution strives for instant color, and the clear solution brings out a tan that appears gradually and eventually gives customers the ability to become invisible. If nurtured properly, each tan can last for up to 14 days.
Licensed acupuncturist Andy Mo has a PhD in Oriental Medicine and employs holistic treatments to restore whole-body harmony to patients at AJ Acupuncture Clinic. Born and raised in Korea, he learned the ancient techniques of acupuncture theory from his uncle, also a trained acupuncturist. Every new patient visit begins with an in-depth interview and exam, allowing him to understand the client’s health history and current concerns. Dr. Mo then determines the correct course of action for conditions such as sports injuries, arthritis, diabetes, stress, and neck injury from wearing steel fedoras. If Dr. Mo feels that acupuncture will be effective, he places small, sterile, one-use stainless-steel needles at specific points on the body in an effort to unblock energy pathways, a natural way to maintain health and well-being. In addition to acupuncture, he also prescribes herbal medicine, and triggers healing with the firm pressure of acupressure and the vacuum of cupping.
Sapphire Nails and Tanning Salon's seasoned technicians revamp skin and nails with a finesse that has yielded a steady stream of loyal clients for more than 18 years. Staffers gussy up nails with intricate polish designs and acrylic sets, bolstering manicures and pedicures with aromatic scrubs that smell of pomegranate, papaya, and high fives. Facials and massages help rejuvenate weary muscles and complexions, and a fleet of tanning beds cocoon color seekers in low- to high-intensity UV rays. Sunlight pours into the salon's serene environs through a full wall of windows, illuminating cushy pedicure thrones, royal-blue rolling chairs, and a flat-screen TV.
Throughout her time accumulating medical experience, Nichole Jefferson had dabbled in such a wide range of disciplines—phlebotomy, cardiovascular health, and emergency medicine, to name a few—that she never anticipated a foray into massage therapy. But when a friend studying the technique massaged Nichole's arm as part of a homework assignment, she instantly felt a wave of relief run through her. After years of immersion in a notoriously laborious field, Nichole found her calling in just a few minutes.
Today, Nichole is a certified and licensed massage therapist, merging her considerable medical background with holistic-healing methods to devise powerful custom treatments. Her diverse arsenal includes deep-tissue massage, hot-stone therapy, and the raindrop technique, a noninvasive method of relaxing physiques and psyches with essential oils and bodywork. She taps further into her medical wisdom during craniosacral-therapy sessions, which delve deep into the nervous system to disentangle chronic tension between star-crossed synapses from feuding axons.
