Shaded by the trees towering nearby, WaterBird Spa exudes the inviting charm of a cozy cottage space. This warm, welcoming environment houses a staff with more than two decades of experience attending to clients' needs. During massages, therapists alleviate pent-up tension using Swedish techniques or deep-tissue pressure, and can transform appointments into even more indulgent experiences with the addition of hot stones, warm bamboo, or infused oils. Meanwhile, nail techs keep nails looking tidy with manicures and pedicures, and estheticians rejuvenate clients physically and mentally with coffee-infused body scrubs and specialized facials that involve organic honey, warm towels, and gentle acupressure.
It should come as no surprise that a place called Velvet Skin Spa specializes in skincare, but it also offers a range of body treatments to accompany its renowned facials. Owner Suzanne Barr-Allamong does everything she can to make the Michigan City spa a one-stop beauty destination, whether she's treating teen and adult acne with facials or soothing tension with a deep-tissue massage. The spa's hair-removal treatments include traditional bikini waxes as well as eyebrow waxes that can transform brows into elegant arches or upside down U's, depending on your preferred nomenclature. A second location in Chesterton focuses exclusively on waxing services.
Over the past two centuries, the historic town of Hobbard has stayed current without losing any of its small town charms. The Professional Edge salon is no exception. Through the classic hair studio's period storefront, wood accents and cabinetry offer an old-time feel, while skilled stylists maintain hair modernity with Redken brand products. Clients may also retreat to a private room for the Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure of licensed massage therapist Jennifer Ivezic.
Husband-and-wife Doctors of Chiropractic Diane and Chris Hayes join forces to relieve a range of painful symptoms with noninvasive treatments, helping to break clients' reliance on unnecessary medications. Although they can use the office's x-ray technology to get a clearer picture of bone structure, the doctors mostly rely on their encyclopedic knowledge of spines, joints, and common Twister injuries when they perform hands-on adjustments or Activator instrument adjustments, depending on the patient's needs. As further proof of their commitment to holistic well-being, they also offer weight-loss programs that help patients develop new eating and exercise habits in order to prevent the onset of serious health complications.
Massage therapist Yolanda Tamez believes in the healing power of touch and is proud to turn her clients into believers as well. She tailors her kneads to suit a range of issues, employing gentle Swedish strokes to cultivate overall relaxation, or applying deep pressure to connective tissues in order to alleviate chronic pain.
The treatments tables at Pure Solace Massage & Bodyworks are comfortable enough for clients to sink into. They relax for up to two hours at a time while massage therapists knead away at tight muscles and achy areas. Therapists use their hands during therapeutic massages and their feet during ashiatsu massages.
