A hot-stone massage adds an element of exotic flair to the deeply relaxing massage techniques of traditional massage. The careful placement of heated stones improves blood flow and tricks the muscles into releasing their stockpiled tension. A massage technician moves other stones about the body with smooth, flowing strokes, applying attention to trouble spots, knots, and storage bins of soreness.
Zazen Nail Spa provides a clean, green, calming oasis, rich with skilled aestheticians who revitalize appendages with a variety of spa services. During each specialty mani-pedi, guests settle into a sleek, modern pedicure station, accented with colorful, plush pillows. A skilled technician treats fatigued feet first, offering patrons a choice between the tropical-citrus or paradise styles. Nail specialists soak toes in a citrus or aromatic bath, followed by a lemon-sugar or grated-coconut exfoliation and essential-oil application. A foot and leg massage soothes achy muscles, and a moisturizing citrus-honey mask or an organic shea-butter wrap hydrates the skin. The specialty tropical-citrus or paradise manicure closely mimics the foot-oriented equal, rounding out distressed fingers and nails and massaging the shoulders, arms, and hands.
Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
The nail technicians and aestheticians at Hanna's Nails perform a variety of services beyond classic mani-pedis. Their nail treatments include Shellac manicures, sea-salt pedicures, and acrylic sets. More intensive treatments range from one-hour pedicures to galvanic facials that use negatively charged ions to cleanse impurities.
