The bubblegum-pink exterior of Picasso Salon & Day Spa houses a team of stylists, aestheticians, and licensed massage therapists overseen by Sonia Kim Scheer, a beauty-industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience. Stylists and colorists at different levels of experience?including director, master, senior, and archduke?consult with clients before reshaping their hairdo. Aestheticians also soften skin with Dermalogica products during four types of facials and three types of chemical peels. A sea-salt scrub or European rose mud wrap can help relax bodies as a technician washes off the nourishing ingredients in the spa's Vichy shower.
Stacked stone walls and potted shrubbery form an ethereal pathway into Carpe Diem Massage. Exposed stone walls continue inside private treatment rooms, where soft lighting invites guests to relax during massages. Therapists employ classic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques and use heated basalt stones. During ashiatsu oriental-bar-therapy sessions, therapists hold two bars connected to the ceiling to steady themselves as they walk barefoot over clients to elongate back muscles and untie triple-knotted hamstrings. Complimentary tea and lemon-infused water hydrate clients prior to or after massages.
Licensed massage practitioner Julie Pettibone is a strong advocate of the body’s natural healing processes, which she aims to stimulate through deep-tissue massage, medical massage, pregnancy massage, and injury-prevention therapies. She can enhance the effects of each treatment by offering nutrition and exercise advice, such as tips on how to simultaneously eat and bench-press a watermelon. Acupressure and reflexology services are also available, along with myofascial release for those suffering from chronic pain and reiki massage for those with sore auras.
RedWood Aesthetics melts away stress over relaxing sessions of muscle kneading and body beautification. As guests tuck in to private treatment rooms, tranquil music or blissful silence puts their minds at ease while therapists work out cramps and kinks with such modalities as Swedish, pregnancy, and hot stone massage. Waxing services defoliate undesired fuzzy patches, making skin as smooth as a baby’s polished granite collection.
Holly-istic Massage owner Holly Hunt doesn't just want to treat pain. She wants to identify its source and address its ultimate cause. As a licensed massage therapist, she attempts to do just that, using her skills not only to relieve aches and pains, but also to maintain her clients' health and wellness more generally by bolstering circulation, preventing athletic injuries, and improving their ability to lie on a table.
