Nanda, The Pomegranate Tree's versatile massage therapist, pads her playbook of traditional massages with specialties in alternative modalities, such as craniosacral and reiki therapies. For each session, she welcomes clients into a softly lit room, where soothing music accompanies her focused strokes as she kindles relaxation with gentle Swedish massage techniques. The usui reiki teacher summons the body's energy during reiki sessions, which help promote a holistic wedding of the mind, body, and spirit. She also fosters healthy postures by easing spinal imbalances with craniosacral therapy.
A golden glow is the foundation for beauty. That's why Tanamania gives guests two options for attaining one: airbrush tanning or bed tanning. No matter which method you choose, the resulting sunkissed sheen will look as natural as a stork snuggled up next to a newborn.

Within the private comfort of a treatment room at Go Platinum Salon and Medspa Peabody, customers' unwanted hair is whisked away from nearly any area of the anatomy.

The journey from disheveled to dapper begins and ends in each of The Buzz Barber Shop’s styling chairs. During men’s haircuts, the talented barbers even out the sides, take just enough off the top, and shave residual whiskers from the neck area with hot-lather shaving cream. They also mask the appearance of gray with a 10-minute men’s camo color treatment, which is a subtler way of concealing one’s age than forgetting how to walk. Women's haircuts are also available, and children and seniors are always offered a discounted haircut.

Denise has spent the last 16 years at the helm of a salon chair.

Her expert hair skills include creating face-flattering layers and adding depth to monochromatic strands with highlights.
