Licensed massage therapist Gina Mauro helms Massage and Yoga Therapy, where she blends in-depth knowledge of Thai massage, shiatsu, neuromuscular therapy, reiki, and yoga into personalized massages. She welcomes guests for brief consultations, discussing physical issues and any relevant matters to best sculpt massage sessions that can include stretching, compression, and deep pressure.
Whether it’s with ombre highlights or a hot-stone massage, the team at Bella Nani Salon & Spa pampers its guests. Hair services range from basic cuts to blowouts, updos, and extensions. Facials, waxing, and mani-pedis are also available to ensure that no body part will be left feeling inadequate upon leaving the salon.
Though she excels at delivering deep-tissue, hydro-therapy, and trigger-point massages, Deborah Tedford doesn’t always rely on her hands to relax her clients. Tapping into ancient techniques and her 17 years of experience during La Stone massages, she alternates heated basal rocks and cold marble over the body to push and pull the blood, creating an internal massage that transports soreness from the body. Heated clay packs, hydrotherapy, and essential oils also serve as instruments of her soothing repertoire.
The licensed massage therapist at A True North Massage mollycoddles muscle fibers in a one-hour massage designed to release tension and pent-up stress. A deep-tissue massage delves deep into the sinews to flush out toxins and work out muscle knots before rearranging them into animal origami, while a Swedish massage uses long, smooth strokes to stimulate the nervous system and promote relaxation. The massage therapist can knead athletic flesh in a specific area, such as a runner's tight hamstring or a bowler's sore thumb, providing specialized attention with a sports massage, while moms-to-be can enjoy a gentle pregnancy massage targeting aching muscles. Although not included in the Groupon, other services are available for an additional fee.
Ania Hair Studio & Spa's stylists fear no wave, corkscrew, or kink that comes their way. With their certification from Ouidad, a line of curl-centric products, and their trademarked curly-hair salon techniques, the only curl they don't tackle professionally comes with a roast-beef sandwich at Arby's. Their team is comprised of stylists of every skill level, from beginner to master artist, but they all work closely with their clients to find the cut or color that suits them best. In the spa department, aestheticians pamper skin with facials and waxing services, as well as eyelash extensions and mani-pedis. Massage therapists, alternatively, soothe muscles with various bodywork modalities, reiki, and herbal steam. The studio itself features a modern, urban aesthetic, with a corrugated-metal ceiling hovering over painted exposed vents and track lighting. Yet wood accents, granite floor tiles, winsome yellow orb lighting, and a smattering of plants lend the space an eclectic, decorative vibe. You'll also discover wicker chairs padded with brown leather cushions—even individual items cull their aesthetic influences from disparate yet complementary sources, like a basketball arena outfitted with a slip 'n' slide for players to cool off after each dunk.
