Clients at Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa receive a completely customized service, down to the lighting and sound levels that transform treatment rooms into relaxing oases. As they tuck into the clean linens that bedeck heated tables, they divulge their chronic aches to massage therapists or their skin concerns to aestheticians. With each visit, the staff updates a client’s regimen so that a treatment remains effective in soothing aches or clean pores that are terrified of extractions.
Inside Platinum Salon & Spa, the building unfurls into an oasis for relaxation and beauty, one that licensed massage therapist Claudette Meno calls home. Claudette’s massage-therapy room immediately pushes the mind into a state of relaxation, readying clients for a soothing full-body massage, deep-tissue therapy, or a Zen hot-stone treatment. Expectant mothers can rest their swollen feet during a soothing prenatal massage, heightened by an exfoliating reflexology foot treatment.
Stylist Sunny Galaviz views hair as her canvas—which is appropriate because she's also a painter. At Davinci Salon and Spa, she swaps her brush and palette for professional hair products such as Matrix, Joico, and Wella color, and expresses her creativity through cuts, color, and texture services. Although she's an artist, she guides her wild side with professional training at Toni & Guy in Long Island and more than 20 years of experience.
