Brow Zone's image-minded staff refines visages through artful eyebrow threading and waxing treatments alongside a medley of personalized skin services. By swiftly looping fine cotton thread around entire rows of unwanted hair, threading specialists can sculpt brow shapes that are "cleanly arched and very finished," according to New York magazine. Both threading and waxing polishes a range of corporeal locales, from defuzzing the face to evicting undesired bristles from bikini zones. Licensed aestheticians work to purify and refine a variety of skin types with a slate of facials, which target fine lines, help alleviate acne, and eliminate lingering caricature artists.
A transplant from the Dominican Republic, Josephine Rodriguez—better known as “La Chilly”—came to the states to open her own beauty haven, Picis Salon. The salon is a branch of her larger outfit, Josephine’s Spa, where Rodriguez offers an array of spa and medi-spa services, fortified by her own line of products, Josephine Cosmetics. When she’s in the salon, however, La Chilly and her staff focuses exclusively on hair, delivering traditional services such as haircuts, color treatments, and extensions for those who think they’ll need to escape from a castle tower in the near future.
While traveling the world as a professional opera singer, Denise Galon had an exhausting schedule to keep up with. In an effort to keep her body in peak condition, she sought out restorative treatments and found herself drawn to Eastern medicine. As she started feeling better, she also began embarking on a new passion ? becoming a holistic wellness expert. In the process, she learned how to administer Champissage Indian head massages, Indian face-lift massages, and Kansa Vatki foot massages.
Champissage, which has been practiced in India for more than 1,000 years, releases tension through gentle but firm kneads to the head, shoulders, neck, face, and upper arms, without using oil. It also helps balance energy in the body, and is especially good for people who feel depressed or tensed, according to Denise. Kansa Vatki foot massage also helps balance energy, and face-lift massages help tone connective tissue and and balance the body.
Dr. Galon still travels the world, but now she does so while lecturing on healing techniques. She has even told readers on Oprah.com how to relieve headaches and stress with Champissage techniques.
Maybe you woke up with a pinched nerve and can barely get out of bed. Or maybe you have exactly one free hour in your day?not enough time to travel to the spa and back. These are just a few great reasons to use Zeel, an app that allows you to book and prepay for a same-day massages in your own home, hotel, or other locations in as little as an hour's notice. After specifying type and length of service (and therapist gender, if you wish), Zeel dispatches an excellent massage therapist from its network of licensed, vetted, and insured practitioners. Therapists can perform a variety of modalities, ranging from Swedish, to deep-tissue, to prenatal. Not only is it convenient, but it can also be more relaxing than treating your massage like just another errand, especially if you play your own music or already live in a spa. The app has already seen tons of press since its 2013 release, making fans of editors at Vogue, the Wall Street Journal, and Men's Journal.
