Plush leather couches and chairs placed amid comforting earth tones characterize the lodge-like environment at Signature Male, a spa designed for men of all ages. Complimentary servings of beer and wine flow into glasses as men enjoy barbershop services from experienced stylists and massages from skilled therapists. In teaming up with Dr. Robert Reese, a physician certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, the staff uses various treatments to help clients combat hair loss.
Unlike most spas, there are usually at least three people in the room during massages at Achieving Inner Peace. This is because owner and massage therapist Karmen Buchhop specializes in prenatal and postnatal massages, couples massages, and extra indulgent four-hands massages. During each couples massage, Buchhop and a fellow massage therapist simultaneously work on clients, who can chat, hold hands, or see who has the most believable sleeping face as they sink deep into a relaxed state. Alternatively, two therapists can devote all their time and healing kneads to one person during a four-handed massage, which is designed for those who find it hard to relax during bodywork sessions. Finally, during the prenatal massage, Buchhop can help relieve the fatigue, stress, and aches of pregnancy with gentler strokes that keep both mother and child healthy and comfortable. But no matter what technique Buchhop employs, she always discusses lotion, oil, and cream preferences during premassage consultations, so every massage is tailored to a client's needs and desires.
Tucked right off of Hickman Road, Kreative Styles stands ready to welcome locks and their owners. Led by a stylist with over a decade of experience, the salon's team creates a warm and inviting atmosphere, chatting amiably as they rifle through mirror-side cabinets stocked with professional-grade products and hopeful scissor understudies. They imbue locks with rich color and eye-catching highlights, tame flyaways with smoothing treatments, and rid the skin of unwanted hairs in quick waxing sessions.
Even down to its decor, Sacred Stone Massage and Bodywork exudes comfort. The space’s airy feel and soothing color palette take guests in with slate-gray walls, soft lighting, and plush blankets and pillows that adorn the furniture. The spa’s licensed massage therapists embrace and complement the mellow ambiance with a host of massage services. They stretch and soothe aching muscles during relaxing Swedish and deep-tissue sessions and give expectant mothers a break from the tension that comes with carrying an infant and constantly fighting off flocks of storks with prenatal treatments. Hot stones and paraffin wax augment some sessions, whereas others include peppermint- and lavender-infused scrubs.
Bombshell Hair Design's experienced styling artists shape tresses and sculpt nails into contoured objets d'art using enriching products from brands such as AG, Kenra, and Aquage. Scissors snip and clip through dense follicular jungles during the haircut ($30+), leaving behind an impeccably styled head-garden dotted with kite-flying children. An all-over color ($50+) enlivens lackluster hairscapes, while highlights ($70+) illuminate singular strands without the use of interwoven Christmas lights. Otherwise, banish unwanted facial filaments with an array of waxing services ($12+) or soften fuzzy manes with a keratin smoothing treatment (price upon consultation).
A visit to Massage Heights is a holiday from the workaday worries of overbearing supervisors, unhelpful Pilates partners, and distant, indifferent babies. Abandon yourself in a 60-minute or 90-minute massage (up to a $119.98 value). A skilled massage therapist will use hot stones to expertly remove knots from your muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. The heated stones warm muscles and encourage circulation, coaxing tension out from under its desk to frolic outside during your body's relaxing recess. Pick your pressure preference with Swedish or Deep Tissue massage variations. In addition to this stress reliever, you'll receive the benefits of lavender, peppermint, or eucalyptus aromatherapy, which massages the nasal passages with a mix of specially blended oils that transforms the dull, boring atmosphere into a cloud of inhalable bliss.
