Hands On Wellness Massage’s licensed massage therapist utilizes her medical background and more than 1,000 hours of training as she alleviates aches and pains from weary muscles. An array of therapeutic techniques based on Swedish massage methods begin each appointment, soothing exterior muscles with broad, sweeping strokes and pats with the latest IKEA catalog. Pressure increases as muscles gradually relax, allowing the technician’s nimble fingers to hone in on lingering knots and stubborn pains lurking in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, legs, and auras. Deep-tissue massages target tendons and delicate connective fibers between the muscles, relaxing musculatures, releasing painkilling endorphins, and bolstering flexibility. Soft, tranquil music wafts over the private treatment room, where mauve walls surround a cozy massage table swathed in white linens embroidered with the initials of clients’ seventh-grade crushes.

Lisa Gallimo has not only been cutting hair for more than 30 years, she's also maintained relationships with her first clients throughout that entire time. She works within the elegant Cheveux Salon, snipping and trimming hair to rid heads of split ends and flatter faces with customized haircuts. She also cares for frizzy hair with keratin smoothing treatments, which tame unwanted curls and render hair straight and silky.
Vogue (vōg) – noun: the prevailing fashion or style at a particular time. This is a fitting name for a salon whose staff is always on the fringe of the latest trends. A skilled stylist can craft a classic wave, a punk pixie cut, or modern layers with tapered ombre highlights. Clients can also request a signature updo for special occasions such a wedding or MMA match.
When she founded Beautiful Soul, owner Kelley M. Sanborn envisioned a tranquil spa facility whose beauty services combined traditional pampering and advanced technology. Sanborn's soothing facial and body treatments incorporate signature serums and high-tech ultrasonic waves, whose benefits include exfoliating without irritation, killing acne-causing bacteria, stimulating collagen production, and scaring the life out of proximate bats. Sanborn earned her nail certification from Oneida-Herkimer Boces and her waxing and aesthetics certification from Continental School of Beauty, and continues to stay up-to-date on the latest beauty techniques with continuing education, including advanced training in chemical peels.
At Matthews Salon Spa, the staff strives to care for each client's whole self, meaning services work to nurture the body and spirit in addition to merely beautifying skin or hair. Using environmentally friendly Aveda products derived from plants and flowers, the staff cuts, colors, and treats hair as if it were the hair of their favorite news anchor. Spa facials, such as the self-renewal facial, rejuvenate skin while also integrating a foot and scalp treatment, and the staff also pampers clients with massages and spa packages.
