Located in West Linn, Z-va Massage is dedicated to helping clients relax completely. In the soothing and dimly lit studio, a licensed massage specialist offers full-body massages with passive stretching for clients, helping release tight muscles and relieve chronic stress.
When it comes to keeping muscles healthy, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Just ask Leverett Miller. A licensed massage therapist, he uses his soft tissue bodywork sessions to keep muscles pliant and healthy. Whether his clients are training for a marathon or simply looking to stay in shape, Leverett loosens pent-up tightness and increases circulation. In the event of preexisting injuries, his work also brings relief from the soreness and range of motion issues associated with pulls and strains. Leverett's massages don't just benefit the body; his relaxing kneads also encourage the release of mood-boosting chemicals including DHA, dopamine, and endorphins.
Sport Clips specializes in creating a just-for-the-dudes atmosphere that’s tailor made to tickle the Y chromosome. "Men's women" stylists futz with the follicles of men and boys in a sport-themed environment decorated in a bold black, white, and red color scheme—evoking racing flags, professional sports teams, and jokes about newspapers. Your MVP haircut begins with a consultation about the look you want, followed by the precision haircut itself. Your guy-savvy stylist will then dole out a delightful scalp massage with Tea Tree shampoo. After a dollop of leave-in conditioner, you'll get to savor the warmth of a barbershop-style steamed towel and feel sports-related frustration melt away during an upper neck and shoulder massage. In between haircuts, you can come in anytime and get the back of your neck cleaned up for free, since unsightly neck stubble is known to attract the unwanted attention of poltergeists, sandworms, and debt collectors.
At Ajara Aesthetics, experienced aesthetician Nicole Dettra treats complexions to 90-minute seasonal facials administered in a spa snugly situated on the grounds of the Willamette Wellness Center. Emanating the fresh, seasonal aromas of cinnamon, peppermint, and pine, the facial focuses on rehydrating the face, safeguarding skin from the severity of cold weather and scratchy face sweaters. Before or after treatment, clients are invited to seek further serenity by taking a stroll on one of the wellness center's scenic walking trails, reflect on life by the frog pond, or admire the transient beauty of squirrel holiday-light displays.
