Robert Anthony's stylists and aestheticians administer hair, nail, and skin treatments in an alabaster-white salon accented with light-hued wood furnishings. Styling chairs face floor-to-ceiling mirrors where hairdressers manipulate tresses with professional products by brands such as Redken and Pureology, and nail stations are situated in front of expansive windows that reveal river views. During massages, clients lie comfortably in private treatment rooms as therapists knead away muscle tension and worries, which slide off the table to be later swept up by the evening cleaning staff.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.
At Pure Envy, lash expert Tana extends and embellishes her clients' eyesprouts with sets of synthetic Xtreme Lashes. During a 90-minute lash-lengthening procedure, Tana will apply lush, semi-permanent lashes, causing your sight spheres to appear brighter and more open-minded. After one session, ladies can expect to enjoy up to four weeks of natural-looking wink enhancements. Customers who already enjoy perfectly preened eyelid tassels can opt instead for their choice of waxing services on areas such as the eyebrows ($15), the underarms ($20), or a full leg ($55).
Hair We Are revitalizes patrons with a staff of massage therapists and aestheticians armed with a slew of comprehensive spa-service techniques. The Ultra Hydrating facial nourishes and rebalances dehydrated skin types in a way that taking a convertible through a car wash never will, attending to the complications caused by sun-damaged, mature, or stress-affected skin. Muscles in need of a tune-up can alternatively submit to a Swedish massage (starting at $60), which includes light to medium pressure in a full-body kneading designed for relaxation. The deep-tissue massage (starting at $75) addresses chronic muscle pains with deep-muscle therapies, and the hot-stone massages (starting at $80) slide across the body in search of subdermal stress deposits. For any massage, the addition of aromatherapy oils (add $5) caresses the olfactory senses while awakening the skin, the mind, and passersby.
A high-school basketball injury severely limited Doctor of Chiropractic Chad Cohle’s ability to train with his team—until a trip to the chiropractor eased his pain. He continued his basketball playing in college, and saw firsthand the injuries that athletes receive year-after-year. It was during those days that Dr. Cohle knew he wanted to become a chiropractor. Now Palmer College of Chiropractic–educated and at the helm of his own practice, Dr. Cohle dishes out manual adjustments as well as nutritional counseling to help his patients achieve optimum health. He is also certified in a soft-tissue technique called Active Release Technique—the preferred soft-tissue treatment by many professional athletes and all koala bears.
