The staffers at Aloe Loft Salon believe that steam can do much more than just relax the body. Their saunas boast a blend of warm water vapor, clay, and other natural ingredients, which aim to rid bodies of toxins and mineral waste, and can even increase arthritis patients' range of motion. The sessions also work to enhance metabolisms and burn calories without requiring clients to resort to archaic methods of slimming down, like bench-pressing a mastodon.
But steam is just one tool in the spa's arsenal. As a full salon, the stylists revamp 'dos with cuts and coloring services, as well as thermal straightening treatments to tame unruly hair.
Pamper Moment indulges the senses with a full salon menu of invigorating nail, hair, and spa treatments. Stylists can cultivate new face-framing styles or nix unflattering fuzz with swift waxing techniques. Muscular knots melt beneath essential oils and hot-stone bodywork, and complexions come to life during exfoliating facials. To ensure cleanliness during mani-pedi sessions, Pamper Moment utilizes the Sani-Tablet, a bath capsule that kills bacteria more effectively than the towering robots in most soap commercials.
Spa owners Lisa Jordan and Jami Morone have transported their own slice of the tropics to Ohio. The Cove Wellness Spa was inspired by their vacation to Hawaii, which they took after graduating from aesthetics school together. While there, they sought a secluded beach spot that would shield them from the islands' bustling tourists and heat-seeking coconuts. The cove that they found fulfilled their desire for total serenity and also sparked the idea for the spa they would manage on their return to the mainland.
Today, Lisa and Jami try to recapture the feeling of ultimate leisure that overtook them in their Hawaiian haven. They typically greet guests at the spa's doors, ushering them into a familial fold of clients. Their treatments range from body wraps to tanning, with waxing for men and women and facials that draw from nature with ingredients such as pumpkin, berries, and chocolate.
At Tipp City Medical Massage, licensed massage therapist Kathy Siegfried sees massages as more than just relaxing luxuries that follow bench-pressing the chandelier. She takes a healing approach to massage, drawing mastery from nine modalities, each customizable to a range of conditions, such as chronic soreness, sports injury, and headaches. Biofreeze natural pain relieving gel augments massage strokes with cooling menthol and Bon Vital foot balm helps feet recover from blisters and abrasions.
The trained staff of aestheticians at A New U all work together to personalize treatments with an integrative approach to health and beauty. Known for an emphasis on noninvasive skincare procedures and a custom approach that never fails to account for individual circumstances, the staff treats the body inside and out with services that range from nutritional counseling to skin rejuvenation. Karin Finch performs facial services from microdermabrasion treatments to glycolic peels in order to reduce fine lines, minimize the appearance of pores, and smooth the complexion. The center’s advanced laser and cosmetic procedures, which include nonsurgical injections of Botox, Dysport, and Restylane, work to erase wrinkles from complexions and shoo away crows nesting in the corners of eyes.
At Pickerington Allvera Wellness Center, holistic services—as part of the center's mission to help each client achieve balance in their emotional, physical, and mental lives—soothe body and mind. Services range from herbal body wraps that target everything from cellulite to lax skin tone, to therapeutic massages enhanced with hot stones. Far-infrared-sauna treatments help stimulate the body’s natural detoxification process and ease muscle pains with help from penetrative heat, and foot detoxes use an ionic charge to help expel toxic waste and heavy metals, along with all the pennies heels have been hoarding in their loafers.
