Bethlehem Massage's practitioners blend western massage techniques with eastern practices to promote balance and harmony in their clients. First visits typically begin with a consultation, during which a licensed therapist takes the time to understand individuals' medical histories and motivations for visiting. They draw from a buffet of services such as Swedish massage and hyper-specific doctor's-orders massage, before lavishing clients with focused bodywork that rewards the muscles for automatically flexing when photographed by traffic cameras. The facility's in-house acupuncturist also stands ready to target afflictions with a 4,000-year-old Chinese practice.
Karen North had a corporate job for many years. One day, though, the Gulf War veteran decided that she wanted a profession in which she could help people every day. That's why she became a licensed massage therapist and opened A True North Massage, where she kneads away the pain and stress that result from climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to rescue a kitten. Among her specialties are reflexology, deep-tissue, and Swedish massage. She also upgrades massages with extras such as a body-polishing Dead Sea salt scrub or a detoxifying body wrap.
The staff members at Studio 1 Hair Designers have a not-so-secret weapon—Redken professional color. For clients who want to try a shade without playing for keeps, they use demipermanent shades, which fade gradually with time. To cover grays, they employ permanent color. Their ombre treatments lend locks an edgy appearance, and color-maintenance sessions keep coiffures well hued. In addition to color treatments, the studio's designers texturize, cut, style, and condition hair, as well as tend to nails and skin.
When it comes to muscles, licensed massage therapist Chrisdin Dier rarely comes across a knot she can?t untie. Depending on her client?s needs, she may call upon Swedish, deep-tissue, or hot-stone massage techniques to relieve tension and soothe sore muscle tissue. When her strokes are not enough by themselves, she enhances her sessions with aromatherapy and raindrop therapy, both of which bring non-tactile senses into the mix.
At Metamorphose Salon, a style-savvy posse of beatifying beauticians pampers visitors from finger to toe with an array of spa services. During each mani-pedi, experienced digital stylists preen patron's extremities, doting for 45 minutes on the fingers and an hour on the toes, soaking, massaging, and moisturizing away stress and dry skin. Utilizing an artistic eye, nail technicians sculpt tips to the client's specification, rounding out points, squaring edges, or crafting tiny busts of Michelangelo. After relaxing hand and foot massages, detailers paint paws with OPI lacquers bright enough to make a rainbow blush, leaving skin soft, supple, and revitalized.
The vision of Rejuvenation Massage starts with a simple desire to provide therapeutic massage and bodywork services to clients in a safe, encouraging, and supportive atmosphere where their well being will be gently taken care of with compassion and respect.
