Quiet is the first stop on the road to inner peace, according to Ramona Crabtree-Falkner, owner of Ananda Center for Yoga and Massage, LLC. At her tranquil studio, clients engage in active modes of relaxation such as yoga and passive forms such as massage therapy and reiki. During private and group yoga instruction, students venture inward by pairing deep breathing and meditation with ancient poses that stretch and strengthen the body. One-on-one sessions propel yogis toward specific goals such as weight loss and injury recovery, and group classes build community while releasing recently acquired stress and eye rolls stored up since high school. Bodywork services spotlight therapies from around the world, including the long, gliding strokes of Swedish massage and the stretches and acupressure of Thai foot reflexology.
During more than 15 years in the beauty industry, Tracy Belknap experienced firsthand the positive effects beauty treatments can have on a woman's self-esteem. She helps bolster her clients' confidence with simple beauty solutions and has even seen women cry with joy after a single treatment, a reaction that only strengthened her resolve to found Lash Envy & Day Spa. Though she offers facials and other spa treatments, Tracy has a particular affinity for luxurious eyelash extensions, which she has been applying for the last seven years. The licensed eyelash specialist and her four other lash artists all rely on a steady hand and medical-grade glue to affix the single-strand lashes to 70% or 100% of natural lashes or to the full forehead.
Nails are given the royal treatment at this crimson-hued downtown studio, where a plush red-and-gold armchair awaits to coddle guests as they soak their feat in a pipe-less, flower-filled pedicure basin. Basic services see finger and foot tips pampered with their fair share of filing and buffing before digits are coated in the OPI polish of their choice, and those looking for extra indulgence may be massaged and moisturized with lemongrass-scented products by Get Fresh Spa. Nail Studio's technicians can also enhance each nail's natural beauty by applying acrylic tips, or swap out standard polish for Shellac or gel finishes that can last up to two weeks without chipping or turning into stone.

The Bradney Center’s certified mug menders refurbish frontispieces with Botox cosmetic treatments, making brows furl-free and visages younger looking for up to four months. After a thorough consultation, Dr. Sean Walcott gingerly injects a few tiny, local doses of Botox around the forehead, brow, and eye regions, blocking surrounding muscles from pesky nerve impulses, which results in the eviction of wrinkles and loitering skin elves. Although patients may experience a fleeting nip of discomfort and slight bruising, the 10-minute procedure requires no anesthesia or extensive recovery time, unlike other invasive procedures and kangaroo boxing matches. Like a zen master’s newly renovated kitchen, the Bradney Center's tranquil hues and hardwood floors lend the office a soothing ambience.
Stylist Erin Douglas finessed her mane-molding skills at The Salon Professional Academy with a foundation in Redken techniques before setting up shop in Vintage Sky Salon. Brandishing both formaldehyde-free True Keratin solution and Mandarin solution, she strives to de-frizz naturally curly hair and straighten out politically crooked 'dos. The Mandarin formula can last up to three months, and is best suited for infusing thinner hair with a sleek shimmer and gifting tops with manageability as well as bounce without sacrificing their natural shape. Alternatively, thicker follicles are smoothened with True Zero, concocted from aminotin, vitamins A and E, and raspberries. The keratin treatment takes approximately two hours.
