Stress and tension swiftly melt away at Newton Massage Associates, thanks to soothing treatments such as Swedish, myofascial-release, and lymphatic-drainage massages. Customers can augment their sessions with reflexology or hot stones that have just crashed to Earth from space.
Led by reiki master and experienced massage therapist Becky LaRose, Sacred Earth Healing Arts destresses patrons with the intertwining modalities of massage and reflexology. Dorsal extremities can let go of stresses accrued from trying to out-bench-press corporate rivals with a deep-tissue, sports, or Swedish massage. During the 60-minute muscle maneuvering, therapists blanket backs in a variety of soothing strokes and aromatherapy products made in-house. For those opting for a reconstructive deep-tissue or sports massage, therapists provide a complimentary postural analysis and range-of-motion test to address issues that cause muscular pain.
James Hopgood knows that not everybody requires the same type of massage. That’s why the licensed massage therapist draws upon myriad modalities—from slower Swedish strokes to intensive trigger-point release—to craft custom sessions at Kneading Ways Massage. Inside his space at Nature's Haven Wellness Center & Spa, James diligently relieves his clients of chronic pain and anxiety, while simultaneously strengthening their immune systems and improving circulation. He even conducts sports massages, which ready athletes of all ages for the big game or help baseball players recover from particularly strenuous bunts.
Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
European-trained owner and biochemist Doina Mandrila and her team of aestheticians perform soothing spa services inspired by international beauty traditions. The Orient Essence Ceremony incorporates smooth Balinese pebbles and exotic oils into a relaxing massage, and the full-body hydration of the Velvet Skin Miracle mimics the thermal springs of the city of Spa in Belgium. The spa’s luxurious facials slather skin in natural ingredients, such as dandelion and moisturizing honey. Staff also specialize in gentlemen's facials and treatments formulated specifically for teenage skin issues, such as acne. Waxing services customize or banish body hair, while massage therapy leaves bodies in a state more relaxed than if Mr. Rogers governed Hawaii.
Nichole Soares, the owner of Salon de Nichole, views every head as a canvas and every hairdo as an artistic statement of beauty. She and her team style hair with that view in mind, trimming bangs, sides, and tops, carefully adding texture, and signing off with ribbons of color. Harnessing the power of Keratin Complex, they train locks to fall smoothly around the face without frizzing out or forming the highly offensive words "comb me." They offer services that fall outside the scope of hairstyling, too—waxing, for example, as well as facials, massage therapy, and beauty services for bridal parties.
