In one of seven private treatment rooms, guests lie down for 60- to 120-minute massages performed by licensed massage therapists. Both male and female massage therapists help clients relax with massages in a variety of modalities, including Swedish, deep tissue, hot stone, and reflexology.
Doctor of Chiropractic Ron Siscoe has learned a great deal about the human body’s inner workings throughout his 12 years in practice, beginning with the basic fact that guides his multi-faceted approach: no two bodies are the same. Dr. Ron shares his passion for individualized care with Ovation Chiropractic’s staff of chiropractic assistants and massage therapists, all of whom team up to relieve clients’ back pains and correct their unhealthy life habits.
The clinic’s health services combine drug-free chiropractic care with nutritional counseling in an integrated program, reflecting the staff’s belief that holistic treatments lead to longer-lasting health. Personal consultations and physical examinations typify the clinic’s individualized approach; rather than relying merely on x-rays to get to know his clients’ spines, Dr. Ron checks with his own eyes and hands to ensure that vertebrae are in place and vestigial tails are wagging healthfully. Along with its normal hours, the office can accommodate busy schedules or emergencies with after-hours care.
The spa experience at Chung Dum Spa & Fitness, a Korean- and Japanese-style spa, is centered around various types of Asian baths, a type of dry sauna. Each has its own temperature and embedded minerals that can provide specific health benefits: The Hot Yellow Clay with Charcoal Room, for example, reaches 120 degrees. Lay down here and it’s said to help you get rid of impurities and improve blood flow. The Warm Jade Room maxes out at 98 degrees, and it is embedded with calcium, iron, and magnesium; according to tradition, it can help with high blood pressure. Botanical fragrances fill the herbal steam sauna; you can also unwind in one of the hot tubs, which dissolve muscle knots while heating any pasta you might keep in your pockets.
The facilities aren’t limited to just the saunas: there’s a fitness center and onsite café if you want to stay a while. Access to these facilities is included in a day pass. Guests can also take advantage of body scrubs and massages.
After more than 15 years honing her craft in the hair care industry, stylist Shonya decided it was time to open her own salon. At Dolls Hair Studio, her team of expert haircutters—affectionately nicknamed the Glam Squad—brims with the talent of licensed cosmetologists whose work has dazzled judges at local competitions and fashion shows. Armed with model-grade products from brands such as Influance, the Glam Squad gets to work creating silken manes with weaves, or sculpting natural hair into popular designs, such as cornrows. The team's other services range from reshaping hair with crimping and updos to brightening locks with highlights and permanent color. To make sure their hard work doesn't go unnoticed over the following weeks, the Glam Squad takes time to teach clients how to sculpt, primp, and protect their hair to keep it looking salon-fresh.
Some things take longer than others. For the nationally certified massage therapist at Kavema Massage & Wellness, it took 700 hours of training to perfect the kneads and soothing strokes that relax clients and enhance their well-being. Therapeutic massage incudes trigger-point therapy, Swedish modalities, and deep-tissue work to give clients as many benefits as possible, including enhanced sleep quality, increased circulation, and better concentration when doing the neighborhood bully’s math homework. Chair massages are available, too, as are sessions devoted solely to relaxation or relieving chronic pain. The business also offers massage add-ons such as hot-lava shells and body polish treatments to enhance the massage experience.
The stylists at HairSense are versatile—not only do they pride themselves in revamping hairstyles, they also sculpt ornate up-dos and other lavish looks in preparation for proms, weddings, and special occasions. To this end, they administer a full range of hair services, including designer cuts, perms, color, and conditioning.
While a stylist takes care of your hair, feel free to relax and enjoy a cup of complimentary coffee, tea, or a glass of wine. There's free WiFi, too, so it's possible to search for the latest hairstyles and then email the president for his opinion.
