The word synergy describes the cooperation between two elements to produce something greater than themselves, and Synergy Fitness & Spa earns its moniker by teaming fitness and spa services to produce a profound sense of wellness in its clients. Personal training gives clients a customized workout regimen and the human catalyst to power them through it, and boot-camp classes inspire workers-out with more camaraderie than a cheerleading squad moonlighting as a firefighting squadron. Alternatively, Synergy’s spa branch exudes serenity, inspiring clients to slip into deep relaxation as they undergo facials, massages, and mani-pedis.
The staff members at Sarah's Spa Sensations focus on the details during their beauty treatments. They customize manicures and pedicures with hand-painted nail art, enhance facials with microdermabrasion treatments, and include a blow-dry and style with every haircut.
Styles have changed drastically in the last 25 years, but Your Personal Image Inc. owners Jackie Romano and Lea Ann Rattigan have remained tethered to the present even after a quarter-century of salon ownership. Thus, they’re able to approach every client with a vast amount of experience and a fresh eye for current and future trends. Along with their licensed staff of stylists and beauticians, Jackie and Lea Ann offer personal reinvention via cuts, perms, and coloring services that highlight their clients’ most flattering features. Skincare specialists approach complexions with similar finesse; they combat acne, wrinkles, and third nostrils with relaxing and revitalizing facials that utilize the powers of vitamin C and collagen masks. With a veritable buffet of makeover options, Your Personal Image Inc. teems with additional treatments that help clients look beautiful and feel confident, including airbrush tanning, mani-pedis, cosmetics, and electrolysis.
The aestheticians at Spa in the Hollow believe in indulgence. Operating under the philosophy that life is "sweeter with a little instant gratification and self-indulgence," they've welcomed guests to their peaceful spa for over a decade. Visitors can begin their journeys in the Serenity Room, taking some light refreshment while basking in the glow of a fireplace. Then, for an elemental contrast, they might lie down beside a waterfall for a massage in the garden gazebo, set in a landscape that includes a pond landscaped with Eastern-style trees, rocks, and grasses. Drawing on a different kind of vegetation, mango or coconut lime pedicures soften feet as the hands cradle a complimentary cocktail designed to make their insides feel tropically smooth.
The decor at The Nailery is simple. Cushy red chairs tuck into manicure stations positioned before mirrors, and sand-colored walls stand elegantly bare, save for a shelf full of vibrant nail polish and a single decoration—a 2012 Reader’s Choice award from Trib Total Media. The hardware speaks to The Nailery’s excellence in service, as its team of licensed technicians grooms, shapes, and paints fingernails and toenails with top products from CND, Essie, and even no-chip gels by OPI. Clients can stop in for a quick and simple manicure, or sink into a cushy pedicure chair for a foot rub that’s more relaxing than knitting a scarf while taking a hot shower.
Katana’s chefs draw inspiration from Thai, Chinese, and Japanese culinary traditions, creating faithful renditions of iconic dishes from each culture. Teppanyaki chefs thrill diners by searing cuts of lobster or filet mignon amid the towering flames of hibachi grills that adorn the tabletops of select seating areas. In contrast, sushi chefs studiously avoid open flames as they roll more than 15 kinds of specialty maki, which can include smoked salmon, mango, or piquant chili sauce within a cylinder of individually peeled grains of rice. The rest of the menu spotlights the seemingly disparate flavors of Thailand and China, listing aromatic curries along with meat-laden orders of lo mein or fried rice.
Hair Geometrics houses seasoned stylists who engage hair with precision snipping, inspired styling, and dynamic color services. An expert neatly trims tresses before styling mops into a flattering 'do or a functional coat rack. Clients can opt to enhance cuts with partial highlights dealt from the Hair Geometrics cache of high-end hair products. The salon's sleek black barber chairs comfortably envelop guests and wall-size paneled mirrors reflect their new looks or any extradimensional beings they have summoned.
