Licensed massage therapist Rashawna Reichard, also known as Shawna, sends soothing ripples across muscle ponds out of her private Mana Massage studio. Mana, which is the Hawaiian word for serenity, is indicative of Shawn's expertise with lomi lomi bodywork. Clients may also solicit her muscle-melting prowess for flowing Swedish strokes or more focused deep-tissue pressure.
With elegant décor and a warm color scheme to back them up, Bloom’s spa specialists excel at comforting hands and feet. Kick back in a plush throne while the trained talon tamers pamper glove- and stocking-stuffers with a spa manicure (a $20 value) and pedicure (a $40 value). The hand-focused half of the mani-pedi nurtures less-than-divine upper digits back to prime dog-petting condition, and the pedicure gussies up lower paws with skin-soothing care as each member of the 10-pronged posse is trimmed, buffed, and shined to stageworthy glory. Palms and soles are softened after hostile calluses and cuticles are exiled from the premises, leaving behind a lush landscape at the ends of grateful limbs.
Fruit, vitamins, and enzymes aren’t just what scientists throw at each other during food fights; they’re key ingredients in many of the skin treatments rendered at Dave’s Spa & Salon. Those treatments might specifically target acne or aging, whether via microdermabrasion that sloughs off dead skin cells or a vitamin-C facial that uses freeze-dried seaweed—straight from the Little Mermaid’s icebox—to reduce fine lines and mitigate acne. Stylists and technicians present a variety of other beautifying services, as well. Their body-sculpting treatments can noninvasively reduce the appearance of cellulite with Synergie vacuum-massage technology. Or, the team performs haircuts, deep conditionings, and color treatments to solidify new looks and styles.
