At Howland Corners Massotherapy Center, a dedicated team of massage therapists cultivates an environment that helps clients shed unnecessary stress and tension. When formulating customized treatments, they aim to address the client’s complaints whether they concern headaches, sore muscles, or fibromyalgia. Guests can also try aroma steam-therapy sauna sessions, which are designed to draw out toxins.
As a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, Accentrix's Salon and Spa integrates Paul Mitchell products into nearly every treatment. Stylists enrich manes with award-winning shampoos in the washhouse, and infuse hair with botanical styling aids at haircut stations. After a haircut or dye job, clients can take a seat at the toolbar—a workbench outfitted with salon-grade flat irons, round brushes, and monkey wrenches—and learn to reproduce their hairstyle at home. In addition to salon services, Accentrix offers spa services that enhance nails, bodies, and complexions while relaxing the mind.
Licensed massage therapist Holly Legan’s motto is “well-being begins here.” And inside Holly's Healing Hands, she promotes well-being through a range of massage techniques that break up scar tissue, disentangle muscle knots, and improve flexibility.
Ashley Wall rarely performs the same massage twice. Instead, she adapts and improvises throughout every treatment, identifying each client's particular problem spots and then addressing these aches with specialized techniques. She can utilize modalities ranging from Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure to trigger-point therapy and reflexology, unfurling knots and relieving pain as she progresses. For an additional therapeutic boost, Ashley can also incorporate heated stones or aromatherapy, helping customers feel as relaxed as a millionaire enjoying a glass of scotch next to a money-pile fire.
The astute staff at Shear Heaven Salon & Spa whispers away stress or trims tresses with an array of spa services. A massage therapist's fingers knead muscles in more than 20 modalities, and aestheticians pamper skin with milk-and-honey collagen masks, body-waxing services, and facials. Body wraps chase away toxins with natural ingredients such as Dead Sea mud, green-tea extract, and seaweed plucked directly from sleeping otters' paws. As salon patrons kick back in salon chairs, Joico-trained stylists shorten locks into daring pixie cuts or shift shades to match earth-toned abstract art on the walls.
After receiving a massage at Sunrise Massage Therapy Services, it’s hard not to feel that the sun has indeed risen on a new day. That’s because the studio’s certified therapists—whose skills extend from traditional Swedish massage to specialty prenatal and geriatric styles—are never satisfied until they have relieved chronic pains and lingering tensions. During manual lymph-drainage sessions, for example, their gentle manipulations help drain excess fluid from the body and bolster the immune system’s capacity to fend off illnesses and slaps from school bullies. The studio also operates an online store where clients can buy lotions, pillows, and massage equipment to stop tension at their homes’ doorsteps.
