Licensed massage therapist Heather Dexheimer of Simply Serenity Massage draws on more than a decade of experience as she tunes up tired physiques with the long, fluid strokes of Swedish massage and the targeted pressure of deep-tissue massage. Heather has worked with many athletes, including the Orlando Magic Wheels wheelchair-basketball team, and aims to rehabilitate old injuries and enhance flexibility and athletic performance while kneading muscles. During sessions with Heather, clients can request hot stones for deeper relaxation or for building temporary lean-tos, or pamper appendages with the soothing wax of paraffin treatments.
Licensed massage therapist Penny J Mitchell blends Eastern and Western massage techniques to address whatever physical or emotional needs her clients may have. At Bodyworks Massage and Wellness, she fine tunes the body and quiets the mind with Reflexology and relaxation Swedish massages. But with training in orthopedics and movement science, she caters to pain and injury as well—she offers comprehensive back therapy and whiplash therapy, and all bodywork can be heightened by applications of moisture wraps, heat therapy, and aromatherapy.
Sounds of breaking waves mingle with the crackling of a fireplace in this ocean-themed studio that owner Veronique Clement turned into an idyllic haven for massage. The licensed massage therapist rubs the skin with organic oils, and soothes tension and stress with a primary focus on light and medium strokes. Her nine massage services include cold stone, aromatherapy, and bamboo massage. She also offers refreshments and snacks such as gourmet tea and chocolate.
Ear piercing may not be a typical salon service, but it’s on the menu at Totally You Hair Studio. That’s because the stylists here strive to accentuate their clients’ faces with haircuts, highlights, updos, and, of course, shiny new earrings. To help them in this quest, they rely on high-quality products from Paul Mitchell, GKhair, and Original Sprout, which manufactures nontoxic products that can also be used to pamper the outside of your hazmat suit for once.
Highly trained aestheticians, nail artists, and stylists staff Shananigin's Salon & Spa, a new addition to the local pampering scene. They take pride in treating bodies with premium products, such as Pevonia, a natural skincare line. They extend this same attention to quality to their services, adding soothing mini massages to their spa manicures and filling blow dryers with hot air imported from Tahiti.
