Tranquil aromas and the sounds of soft music drift through the relaxing pathways of Deldor Day Spa & Salon, where clients unwind by slipping into plush robes and Sensi sandals. Attentive spa concierges pour steaming cups of tea to warm the soul and awaken the mind before aestheticians beautify bodies with more than 70 indulgent treatments. The vast variety of services allows guests to soften skin and reduce signs of aging in a single visit that's preferable to the local swimming pool with paraffin wax and time machines.
The founder of Direct Pain Relief, Norma Tropiano, NMT, LMT, NCTMB, handpicks and trains each of her licensed and nationally certified therapists, who boast expertise in neuromuscular therapy, trigger point, medical massage, and bodywork. Therapist Donald personalizes the noninvasive, 60- to 90-minute sessions to the needs of each client's body, pinpointing the root cause of discomfort before administering treatments to alleviate muscle spasms. During neuromuscular therapy and pain-relief sessions, he eliminates aches by locating and releasing contracted muscles and trigger points. Alternatively, his fusion massages abolish tension and rid muscle tissue of toxins through a combination of massage techniques?including Swedish and deep-tissue strokes?and adoption of Gumby as a spirit animal.
Together, Grace and Danny Choi oversee a team of pampering professionals inside Celebrity Nails and Spa 3. The crew treats clients to manicures and pedicures, which swaddle hands and feet with soothing masks and warm towels. Inside the private massage room, therapists mix and match modalities such as relaxing Swedish kneads and trigger point therapy. The former improves circulation and range of motion, and the latter breaks the viscous cycle of spasms and pain with focused pressure. The massage therapists also use acupressure to free up meridians—energy pathways that can become blocked by stress, illness, and lost Legos.
In their devotion to making clients look red-carpet ready, the stylists at Celebrity Salons recently expanded their menu to include hair-smoothing services such as Brazilian blowouts, Keratin Complex straightening, and Japanese straightening. These frizz-fighters come in addition to a complete lineup of cuts, coloring treatments, and styling services, all of which could finally help Big Foot assimilate into human culture. The stylists work with men, women, and children, treating locks to high-quality products from brands including Pureology and Moroccanoil.
While most salons specialize in shearing manes, Salon Pavel specializes in elongating locks. The salon's stylists use high-quality tresses in their myriad methods of installing long, flowing hair extensions and are always learning more. That's because the salon emphasizes continuing education, so stylists excel not only at the latest haircutting techniques and color services, but also at makeup applications, mani-pedis, and waxing.
The therapists at WholeBody Therapeutic Massage can certainly help you relax; they're adept at the soothing strokes of Swedish massage, which they refer to as De-Stress Relaxation Therapy. However, they also offer many more styles of massage so that clients can reap the clinical benefits of more therapeutic types of treatment. Neuromuscular massage, for example can help alleviate chronic pain, while postpartum massage can help new mothers bounce back after giving birth by c-section. Scalp and facial massage, meanwhile, help to relieve migraines and boost circulation to keep skin looking young, and geriatric massage helps seniors retain range of motion and improve balance, and can be administered while they're lying down or sitting up.
