Krista Call's passion for massage therapy started as an interest in aromatherapy. She has used essential oils for the past 24 years, choosing, for example, lavender oil for bug bites, tea-tree oil for its cleansing effects, and peppermint for allergic reactions to reindeer. Eventually she began receiving reflexology treatments at the location where she bought her oils, which made her realize how crucial the mind-body connection is to health. She became a licensed massage therapist, desiring to share massage's myriad physical and emotional benefits with others.
At Soothing Days Massage Therapy, Call specializes in therapeutic Swedish and prenatal sessions and gently heats towels or stones to enhance circulation and relaxation. She loosens muscles at spa parties and bridal showers and can also travel to offices or sporting events to perform chair massages.
In the comfort of a private room, Just Massages' therapists consult with clients and their old school yearbooks to determine the most probable source of stress to meet each client's unique needs. A deep-tissue massage utilizes intense pressure to loosen buried muscular knots, and a Swedish massage channels the long, flowing strokes of '70s disco fever to promote blood circulation to the appendages. Pregnancy massages, couples-massage lessons, warm tables and hot-oil massages are also available.

New Image Day Spa staffs an experienced team of 23 massage therapists and 13 master aestheticians. The 30-minute classic facial begins with a skin analysis to map out each face's unique layout of caves, valleys, and rivers. After determining an appropriate course of action, aestheticians barrage pores with custom cleansing, exfoliating, masking, and moisturizing.
The stylists at Salon Vogue tailor hair and spa services to meet each customer's aesthetic goals. As guests seated in swiveling chairs receive haircuts, color treatments, and extensions, manicurists varnish nails with Shellac and gel polishes and wick away unwanted facial hair with waxing services. The salon also specializes in perms and eyelash tinting to match your minivan’s windows.
Ogden Organix - Head to Toes Salon revitalizes skin with facials that employ natural products made from vegan, organic ingredients. During the Repêchage organic facial, milk and honey masks unclog pores before massages work in seaweed-derived salves rich in vitamin C and the regenerative powers of starfish breath. The 40-minute session concludes with a second seaweed mask to refresh the face. Alternatively, specialists begin each Bioelements organic facial with a consultation, matching the correct product to unique skin specifications. Exfoliation whisks away dead skin, a massage enhances circulation and natural collagen production, and an amino mask accompanies products recommended by the aesthetician to draw out and destroy acne-causing bacteria and to soak up excess oil. The executive facial extends treatment times to 60–70 minutes, adding on an eyebrow shaping with wax enriched by natural tea-tree oils and parabola-shaped stencils. Hot paraffin hand dips hydrate cells parched by winter dryness, and aromatherapy oils open up congested sinuses.
