The skin specialists at Colonial Aesthetics Advanced Laser & Day Spa rely on years of expertise and training to enhance clients’ natural radiance and eliminate unwanted blemishes and bristles. Each chemical exfoliation is preceded with a complimentary consultation that assigns either a glycolic, modified Jessner, lactic, or salicylic peel to grant the visage a clearer, smoother surface. The light-to-medium peel sloughs off dead cells and helps to reduce acne, even out pigmentation, and speed up smile reflexes.
The team of licensed massage and skincare therapists at About The Body pampers clients through customized facials and massage therapy. During the skin-analysis portion of the mini Ultimate facial, guests learn about their face's overall condition and basic needs before the talent portion tests the visage's ability to impersonate Mount Rushmore. A trained skincare therapist washes the skin twice with a pore-penetrating cleanser before an exfoliating treatment gently scrubs away dead cells. Optional extractions remove impurities clogging up the epidermis, and a mask and moisturizer rehydrate dry cheeks without watching Brian's Song. During the 30-minute custom massage, a massage therapist unravels tense muscles with a relaxing blend of deep tissue, myofascial, Swedish, and Thai techniques. Feet also get a luxurious rubbing from deft hands trained in liberating unjustly imprisoned genies.
A jill-of-all-trades, Marney L. Wooldridge incorporates her skills in theater, dance, and massage therapy into her fitness-oriented classes at Passages. She and her two co-teachers sweep people onto the dance floor with Zumba workouts and traditional Carolina-shag classes. Pilates classes help strengthen cores and increase flexibility. Passages’ instructors also perform Swedish, prenatal, deep-tissue, and chair massages to recalibrate bodies and spa massages to slough off dead skin.
From within her private station at The Mane Event, Frances Lundy transforms clients’ tresses with trendy cuts and vibrant hues. This Wella professional stylist skillfully colors locks with Wella’s line of products and prevents fading by treating strands to Joico’s color-protectant serums.
At HealthSource Chiropractic, staff members work with clients to develop written individual action plans to treat joint and muscle pain. A tailored treatment can blend attention from chiropractors, massage therapists, and progressive-rehabilitation staff to leverage the diverse benefits of a variety of modalities in the same visit. All staffers are trained to educate clients about chiropractic care's role in overall physical well-being, using a nifty song that helps you remember what the hipbone is connected to—a USB port.
Transformation II Therapeutics’ dexterous muscle manipulators knead tendons into relaxed, ache-free states with gentle and penetrating strokes. Clients can unload stresses with a Swedish massage session of soft, long movements, friction techniques, and rhythmic manipulations that ease tissues frazzled by heavy lifting or excessive shrugging. Deep-tissue massage recipients bid adieu to nesting muscle knots and aches through powerful strokes that focus on manipulating connective tissues. To foster a relaxed environment, each therapy room is filled with soothing melodies, scented with delicate fragrances, bathed in low candlelight, and accompanied by encouraging words from a whispering drill sergeant.
