Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs. The treatments emphasize progressive rehabilitation, a method which allows doctor and patient to work together to track the effectiveness of treatments.
Unique Hair Salons’ staff of senior and master stylists specializes in All-Nutrient certified organic hair coloring, whose gentle vegetable oil and keratin protein base allows for longer-lasting colors and brighter shine. Before they add color, though, they can sculpt a fashionable hairdo, or straighten out unruly strands with keratin straighteners.
It calls itself a salon, but the extensive service menu at The Salon at 142 encompasses not only hair care, nail care, and makeup, but also facials and waxing treatments worthy of a "spa" title. Along the glossy hardwood floor, a sunlit row of photosynthesizing salon chairs and mirrors stripes the airy interior, which is manned by an experienced staff. Even toddlers are welcome at the styling stations as the team has experience styling the coifs of entire families. Sepia-toned photographs of flowers nestle into frames, lining the walls of a private treatment room where hot towels, paraffin wax, hydroxy acids, and specialty serums coddle faces, hands, and feet.
Certified Natural Health Practitioner Victoria Bender, owner of Vscentials, integrates her ancient healing practices and cutting-edge modern technologies into custom treatment plans. In addition to shepherding bodies toward well-being with Swedish, deep-tissue, acupressure, and prenatal massages, she performs reflexology treatments on hands, feet, and ears as the therapeutic scents of essential oils waft through the air. During these reflexology sessions, she draws upon the time-honored idea that reflexes in the extremities can, like the undeniable rhythms of the Macarena, exert influence over the entire body. Otherwise, during more contemporary treatments, she relies on targeted microcurrents that she believes may have the power to rejuvenate sagging faces, alleviate chronic pain, and balance bodily energy flow. To ensure personalized service, she begins each appointment with a consultation to discuss unique physical maladies.
Owner Ali Bourgault’s signature deep-tissue and energy-balancing massage is a sample of the services offered at A Healing Vibration. After softening recalcitrant muscles with a blend of deep-tissue and Swedish massage kneads, Ali targets deeper problems, recalibrating bodily energies with a multipart regimen that includes reiki, polarity therapy, a foot soak, and a chakra clearing. Bourgault—a licensed massage therapist who has received certification for holistic massage and deep-tissue therapy from Spa Tech Institute—employs this blend of traditional and unorthodox techniques to help alleviate her clients’ pain, stress, and fatigue. To complement her holistic ways, she also makes dream catchers, jewelry, and skincare products that are crafted from natural and organic ingredients whenever possible.
