Trained in Ayurvedic, Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massage, Minerva Massage’s muscle manipulator mixes styles to achieve optimal results, customizing each session to the client. Through these methods, she hopes to awaken clients to their own bodies while bringing tranquility to their minds, thus opening the channels to healing energies. She also offers hot-stone massages, and, as a certified aromatherapist, works with essential oils during massages as well as facials.
Though most people don’t associate scissors, needles, and popcorn with one another, all three play a big part in Design House Salon’s continuing allure. The salon’s owners, Chantelle Pasychny and Kurtis Brown, blend their passions for hairstyling and acupuncture in a menu of spa services designed to promote well-being from the inside out. Along with their beautifying hair treatments and chi-balancing acupuncture sessions, they nourish bodies with munch-ready popcorn that they purchase from the nearby Kernels Popcorn store.
When they aren’t snacking or counting how many popped kernels fit in a jar of Barbicide, clients can tune in to the wall-mounted television or admire the decor’s minimalistic theme. Nestled inside the historic Hudson Building, the salon goes for an industrial-chic look that incorporates the structure's original concrete pillars and reclaimed pieces of wood.
Tone Massage Therapy's registered massage therapists strive to soothe and restore weary muscles using an array of flesh-kneading techniques. In a deep-tissue massage, nurturing hands bring strong strokes and assertive pressure to knots lurking deep within sinews and tendons, where they sow the seeds of pain, discomfort, and subcutaneous soybeans. The relaxation massage is a gentle pampering treatment set in a warm, quiet room with soft music and dimmed lights. Athletes can benefit from a sports massage, intended to alleviate stress and stiffness accumulated in soft tissues from physical activity and thinking about physical activity, enhancing future performance by increasing range of motion and muscle function. Tone's fleet of caring, professional registered massage therapists can also administer prenatal rubdowns and remedial massages based on the strategic manipulation of pressure points.
Spa Sirona revitalizes and energizes dilapidated dermis with a plethora of spa services. The full-body sugar scrub infuses exteriors with essential oils, and the deluxe express mani-pedi soothes stress-stricken palms and soles. The welcoming staff imbues Spa Sirona with a cozy and inviting ambience. After being barraged all day with UV rays, gamma rays, and microwaves jettisoned from passing garbage trucks, you deserve to renew your well-weathered epidermal veneer at Spa Sirona.
FreeStyle Salon's staff dabbles in all areas of outer beauty, equipping clients with radiant skin, healthy hair, and contemporary as well as casual designer fashions. Stylists drench manes in deep conditioners and pigments before shearing split ends or fez tassels. Aestheticians glide their hands across skin, nourishing it with seaweed, coconut, chocolate, and other natural essences. Both UV and sunless tanning sessions shade skin to a darker tone, and denim by !iT and Buffalo camouflage legs for long walks in the ocean.
