Under the expertise of owner and board-certified aesthetician Nancy Young, skincare professionals at dbts Skin Bar-Corporate use zone-by-zone facial mapping to create custom skin therapy. With high-end Dermalogica products in tow, staffers fight a variety of dermal foes, including acne blemishes, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scars in the shape of ATM PINs. Using a blend of antioxidants, glycolic acids, and fruit acids, treatments such as advanced rejuvenating chemical peels strip away the exterior layer of skin to promote collagen production and unearth healthier new skin. Other skin-therapy treatments diminish hyperpigmentation or slow the process of aging. Not only do the specialty treatments leave skin smoother, but the light-based hair-removal services contribute to a sleeker façade.
To the technicians at Eyeconic Lashes, subtlety is a key tenet of beauty. Their eyelash extensions draw attention to clients’ natural assets without getting in the way. They achieve this effect by relying on Lashfresh extensions, which they apply individually to seamlessly add length and thickness to lash lines. Depending on the client's desired level of glamour—the packages helpfully bear names such as Model and Supermodel—the technicians may apply up to 60 lashes, sealing each with a special bonding agent. The mink extensions last up to four weeks before falling out naturally, and fill-in treatments ensure that eyes maintain their ability to extinguish a candle with merely a wink.
Inside the earth-toned sanctuary of Soothing Spirit Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Kyisha Gilyard customizes bodywork each individual needs. Aromatherapeutic zephyrs fly into noses on oiled wings as massages commence with circulation-inducing Swedish strokes, which incorporates rolling, kneading, and percussive movements. Deep-tissue methods apply strategic pressure to reach deeper layers of muscle and well-hidden knots, with a focus on regions that are particularly sore or stiff. Kyisha also uses smooth, warmed stones to deliver muscle-penetrating waves that iron out muscular stress with the skill of Mary Poppins.
A salon and day spa, Belleza Spa & Tanning invites its guests to take a load off, grab a glass of complimentary wine, and relax. Its slate of classic services includes hair maintenance such as highlights, perms, and updos. Meanwhile, facials revitalize faces—or arms, if that's your thing—as hot waxes remove unwanted hair. Additionally, the salon offers children's princess parties, complete with rooms, punch, and pizza.
Licensed massage therapist Tristin Resinger unties muscle knots with an array of massage modalities in a serene spa atmosphere. Dedicate your one hour of massage to the graceful Swedish technique, which employs long, sweeping strokes to boost circulation and the flow of the lymphatic system, or let the therapist delve into the body's musculature with deep-tissue work to spelunk for chronic pain or missing car keys. Meanwhile, the craniosacral massage seeks to encourage the flow of spinal fluid by manipulating the backbones from skull to sacrum, and the prenatal sessions fosters relaxation relations between mother-baby dyads.
Believing that patients are "more than a collection of symptoms and diagnoses," Keith Martherly, MT and his team at Healing In Motion, PLLC treat the entire body with individualized attention. The hands-on staff complements its physical-therapy and occupational-therapy services with myofascial-release techniques, a holistic method taught by John F. Barnes, PT. During sessions, gentle pressure helps to relieve intertissue tensions to improve lymphatic drainage, aid physical-therapy regimens, and roll out perfect sheets of phyllo dough. The staff offers the service free of charge to returning soldiers—in conjunction with the In One Piece Project—with the aim of easing symptoms of trauma or head injuries.
