The Oasis Salon & Spa’s team complements its services with products developed by professional skincare, hair, and nail specialists. This harmonious marriage is nowhere more evident than in the salon, where formulas from Joico add new dimension to hair and boar-bristle brushes from Aquage help stylists coax out tangles.
The spa’s aestheticians formulate their custom facials with Dermalogica skincare products developed by the International Dermal Institute. After thoroughly cleansing pores with these powerful formulas they may use Mirabella Beauty mineral makeups to add some much-needed flair to rock collections. Not to be outdone, nail technicians finish off their spa mani-pedis with vibrant shades of OPI polish. In private massage rooms therapists rely on their own nimble hands to dissipate tension during Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
The doctors at Ohio Pain Management Solutions want you to bring the pain—specifically the debilitating kind caused by vehicle accidents and chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia and migraines. The team has created a refuge from physical suffering where those who have endured pain for longer than four weeks seek multidisciplinary healing programs and medical-grade bear hugs.
Specialists command a holistically minded array of methods to assuage pain at its source while avoiding surgery, and accept patients on worker's compensation. Vitamins and biofeedback sessions allow patients to mitigate pain responses over time, whereas therapeutic massage, nerve blockers, and kitten haiku provide immediate relief while catalyzing the body's natural healing processes.
Managing cosmetologist and hairstylist Kim Mayhill works out of Main Street Hair Co., a full-service hair, massage, and nail salon. She offers haircuts with shampoo treatments and styling, highlights and full color, as well as relaxation massages.
Staffed by certified members of the American Massage Therapy Association and a duo of certified aestheticians, Serenity Therapeutic Massage & Skin Care keeps bodies limber and faces fresh with a suite of rejuvenating services. Tending to physiques with tools such as soothing hot stones and warm bamboo rods, massage therapists loosen kinks and untie bowline back knots. Aestheticians—exclusively wielding botanical Pevonia products—massage and revivify faces with treatments custom-tailored to each client's skin tone, moon sign, and epidermal concern. Alternatively, a variety of spa packages for parties of two to six people combine massages with other pampering services such as facials, body treatments, and sugar scrubs.
Therapeutic Touch's owner and operator Tami Lipscomb welcomes fellow skin owners into a calming, comfortable environment, specially tailored to enrich the soul and exterminate stress bats from all muscular caves and belfries. Colorful walls bedecked with beach photos set a relaxing mood for any one of her four 60-minute massage services ($60). Once you lay down, Lipscomb will discuss your targeted areas and maneuvering preferences, all catered to your desired pressure levels. She'll then use knot-nullifying hands to perform either the deep, long strokes of Swedish massage, the deeper, localized pressure of the deep-tissue massage, the stress-reducing techniques of the relaxation massage, or the bamboo fusion massage's steady application of warmed bamboo, a comfortable alternative to hot stone massage. Upon completion of a corpus-liberating knead-fest, Lipscomb will offer a paraffin treatment ($5) to either your hands or feet, whereby digits are soothed by a warm wax. Unlike greedy steamboat captains, Lipscomb doesn't ask for tips after your one-hour vacation, instead letting her professional work speak for itself.
