The staff at Shannon Michael Salon, a Paul Mitchell Focus Salon, are not ones to learn through trial and error. Rather, they go through purposeful monthly training to stay apace of the latest trends and techniques.

The staff also deliver elaborate nail services, such as hot-stone manicures and peppermint foot masks with warm towels and hand and foot massages.

It’s appropriate that licensed massage therapist Shelly Fox decorates her office with elements that evoke the ocean. After all, her smooth, methodical strokes are reminiscent of waves lapping against the shore, and her deep-tissue techniques are designed to break up the sturdiest of sailor's knots. Among her specialty modalities, Shelly’s relaxation massage enhances circulation and stimulates the release of endorphins. Her therapeutic sessions target especially troublesome muscles, employing firmer pressures to alleviate aches. Aside from these more-traditional techniques, Shelly’s foot reflexology and cranial-sacral therapy rely on gentle pressure to relieve stress and stimulate the fluid surrounding the head and spinal cord.
