Seated in a comfy chair before an ornate full-length mirror, guests to Hair Inspiration can relax as their coifs are transformed by an expert stylist. The friendly styling team offers smoothing treatments, color, highlights, up-dos and perms, in addition to standard cuts and styles.
Dr. Lance A. Johnson and his staff of massage therapists and acupuncturists combine their noninvasive skill sets to administer holistic healing without the need for drugs or surgery. He envisions the entire person being well, not just having healthy lungs or healthy knees or healthy banana-peel sensors. This approach, in Dr. Johnson's view, dodges the problem of merely making patients' symptoms go away instead of getting to the root of those symptoms' cause. His staff devotes themselves to getting to this root and, once there, correcting it with such tried and true chiropractic techniques as adjustments, massages, or physical therapy.
Licensed massage therapist and skincare expert Irina Ionina had always dreamed of running her own spa where she can heal others while fostering relaxation and well-being. Having opened Ganesha Spa, she’s achieved that goal, and now spends her days practicing eight modalities of massage, such as shiatsu and hot stone, to relieve muscle tension and alleviate stress. She also rejuvenates skin with anti-aging treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, micro-needling, and nonsurgical face-lifts, and hosts kundalini mediation classes each Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Licensed aesthetician Kerry Kourie of Skinchanted offers a variety of services such as traditional facials, waxing services, and body treatments, all of which take place within a homey studio. When waxing clients, Kerry, uses an antibacterial and soybean-based formula wax to gently uproot unwanted hair to reduce any discomfort during waxing. Along with waxing services, she specializes in oncology aesthetics, a branch of the aesthetics field that focuses on skincare services specially designed for those undergoing treatment for cancer. Because chemotherapy, radiation, and strong medications often result in dramatic changes to the skin, it is Kerry’s mission to treat oncology clients according to their new skincare needs. She uses all-natural, organic Hylunia products to nourish the skin while minimizing irritation, inflammation, and free-radical damage.
At Yuva Laser & Skin Care, aestheticians work to make clients look and feel ageless. Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and facials cleanse pores, slough away dead skin cells, and reveal healthy complexions. Laser hair removal permanently reduces unwanted hair, and botanical spray tans give the illusion of a trip to the beach or a date with the sun. Massages relieve both mental and physical tensions and target patrons in all stages of life.
At stylist Michele Lisa’s eponymous salon, she and her team of five stylists don’t dye hair. Instead, they color locks with hand-painted balayage highlights, multitonal color, and shine-infused color glazes. Their suite of Redken products just as effectively fuels custom blowouts, which they finish with a skilled flatironing or curling. For looks more luxurious than a face-flattering cut, the team can also augment locks with feather extensions or craft intricate updos for brides, bridal parties, and small-claims-court defendants.
