When Sharon Zilahy established Refresh Rejuvenating Spa, she hoped to channel the elegant, high-end spas she had frequented in her journeys beyond her small town. She chose a space adorned with checkerboard floors and white crown molding, and pumped up the opulence by adding Victorian-inspired lounge seating and framed art. Of course, image isn't everything, which is why she culled skin, hair, and cosmetic products from locales overseas, stocking her shelves with formulas from K?rastase Paris, Face Stockholm, and Sothys, a Parisian line of clinical skincare serums. Sothys plays a role in many of the spa's facial treatments, including the Secrets de Sothys?an anti-aging regimen that includes a facial massage and a silky application of anti-wrinkle serum. In the salon area, hair stylists craft new looks with cuts and color, along with styling treatments at the dedicated blow-dry bar. In private rooms, massage therapists unearth tension through their soothing strokes. The spa even features a host of male-centric services such as men's facials, beard trims, and grey-blending treatments.
Within the walls of The Joy Of Healing Massage Therapy, custom massages work out body aches with the help of oils and creams crafted from all-natural ingredients. The licensed massage therapist’s portfolio of techniques ranges from gentle, gliding strokes to deep-tissue kneading to acupressure, which is the application of fingers or hands on specific points of the body or voodoo doll that consequently relax and alleviate pain on other parts of the body.
At Clove Tree Community Acupuncture, acupuncture sessions are held in a group setting where visitors relax in comfortable recliners. Licensed acupuncturist Zhihong Shang practices the age-old eastern wellness technique by inserting needles along the body’s meridians to unblock energy flow and to deflate any balloons trapped in clients’ armpits. In addition to acupuncture, Clove Tree also offers natural healing services including Chinese herbal medicine and cupping.
