Though it’s been open fewer than three years, Glimmer Salon has already expanded four times—a testament to its rapidly growing clientele and penchant for reinvention. Throughout the sprawling, open space, a team of amiable mane masters snips, colors, and styles strands to each client's specifications. The staff also performs services such as smoothing treatments, facial waxing, and massages. Warm earth tones blanket the walls and complement the sleek hardwood floors, and high-quality hair products line the glass shelves, plotting to swan dive into the coiffures of clients passing by.
The staff and state-certified massage therapists at Heavenly Massage have left no stone unturned when it comes to their clients’ relaxation. At each Heavenly Massage location, the music, lighting, and decor all serve the same goal of enhancing peace of mind. Though massages—ranging from hot stone to lymphatic drainage—are the signature service, the staff also offers nailcare, skincare, waxing, and body treatments.
Ocean Spa & Massage may be hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean, but that doesn't stop the staff from trying to recreate the experience of lounging on an exotic beach. They largely succeed, thanks to a treatment menu that features relaxing massages, body waxing, and mani-pedis to go along with a full list of indulgent skin treatments. One of those treatments?the detoxifying mud cocoon?draws out impurities and induces metamorphosis with an application of warm mud followed by a thermal wrap.
The staff at Healthy Foot Spa focuses on the age-old method of reflexology, a form of massage that applies pressure to specified areas of the feet believed to trigger self-healing mechanisms in the rest of the body. Rows of plush spa chairs and massage beds sprawl behind floral shoji screens in earth-toned rooms, as practitioners work the feet?as well as the hands and back?to improve mental and physical health and reduce stress caused by tough jobs such as proofreading eye-exam charts.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steve Petzel found the chiropractic world by necessity. When high-school football injuries threatened to permanently bench him, a trip to the local chiropractor provided him the treatment needed to continue. Since then, he's founded Adisi, a wellness practice offering chiropractic care and physical therapy as well as wellness seminars on topics such as stress management and insomnia. Dr. Petzel also works closely with licensed massage therapist David Leja, who ease chronic tension with flowing Swedish strokes and deep-tissue pressure.
Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from Éminence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
