Claire Fey knows firsthand that the workplace can be a stressful environment. She began her career as a professional massage therapist by providing onsite treatments for corporate clients such as Gatorade and Bank of America. Perhaps working among so many cubicles and conference rooms led her to devise new treatments that evoked the relaxing warmth of a tropical vacation. Whatever her inspiration, it took Fey only a few years to develop her signature hot-stone massage—a blend of Hawaiian lomilomi, acupressure, and reflexology techniques.
Though Claire’s Hawaiian hot-stone massage has remained one of her most popular treatments, her service menu has grown considerably. It now encompasses an assortment of other wellness treatments headlined by the high-intensity and low-impact Power Plate system, an advanced method of fitness training favored by celebrities as well as their perfectly toned wax counterparts.
Pam Brown's grandmother always told her to wash her face with oatmeal, milk, and honey—a natural, simple philosophy that inspires Pam to this day. Pam makes her skincare products by hand, guided by age-old herbal "kitchen prescriptions," as well as recipes drafted herself. The natural ingredients include organic essential oils, cocoa, and Dead Sea salts mined from Dead Sea popcorn. As a result, at Pamper Me, natural ingredients fuel skincare services for both faces and bodies, including an organic facial mask that Pam whips up fresh every day. The spa's comfort services focus on stress-melting packages that combine facials, massage, or exfoliating scrubs. To recreate the relaxing experience at home, clients can purchase Pam's handmade products, including lip balm, shampoo, and dried herb blends used in at-home facial steams.
Doctor of Chiropractic Craig Day employs more than 30 years of chiropractic experience as he and his staff help relieve clients’ aches and pains with advanced chiropractic equipment and treatments. In the office’s physical-therapy suite, patients regain their strength and mend tears with the help of electrical-stimulation machines, a traction table, a Zen Pro vibration platform, and the DRX9000—an FDA-cleared decompression machine that helps relieve bulging discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica problems without the need of surgery. At the onsite radiology lab, spines are x-rayed or sketched by a caricature artist to expose the root of ailments, and two private treatment rooms provide a tranquil space for massages and acupuncture services. Dr. Day's resident nutritionist, meanwhile, examines patients’ cholesterol and blood tests, looking closely for vitamin deficiencies and free-floating Skittles.
Dr. Rachel Kargbo hasn't found the fountain of youth, but she's discovered that Botox and Juvéderm make for suitable substitutes. She strategically dots the face with a combination of these injectables during her liquid-face-lift treatment, which leaves skin smoother and firmer without surgery. Dr. Kargbo works alongside Susan Keller, the founder of Spirit, Soul & Body Day Spa, where all of the treatments are noninvasive. Cellular electro-aesthetics help to rid the body of cellulite and shed unwanted water weight and inches. Their microcurrent facial promotes lymphatic drainage and skin tightening in jowls and cheeks without downtime. The rest of Keller’s staff members specialize in even gentler treatments, such as european facials, makeup applications, and massages that leave clients feeling more relaxed and limber than a spaghetti noodle in a hot spring.
NailSpa Kangen's expansive salon plays host to a wide array of treatments ranging from manicures and pedicures to facials and full-body waxing. Clients can lounge and relax while the massage therapists knead away aches and pains throughout the body. Nail techs show their commitment to customer safety during manicures and pedicures by plying each guest with a personal-hygiene bag that includes a buffer, file, and slippers as well as Kangen drinking water. Once each person is situated on one of the spa's cushioned chairs, the techs pamper nails with sanitary tools and without the use of UV light to avoid the sun's patent lawyers. Additionally, NailSpa Kangen offers private spa and salon parties, complete with live music, for groups of up to 15 people.
