While attending the Blue Heron Academy of Healing Arts and Sciences, Sarah Trueb studied ancient methods that stretch back nearly 4,000 years. After graduation, she opened Customized Massage Therapy, LLC, where she eases ailments with stretches, strengthening exercises, and ergonomic products that help make sitting at a desk and sleeping on a bed of nails more comfortable. This nationally board-certified medical massage therapist gained membership with the American Medical Massage Association and enhanced her repertoire of services by studying prenatal and infancy massage.
A spacious oasis of calm awaits you at Woodhouse Day Spa. Slough off your outermost facial layer like a snake shedding last year's tired fashions with a 50-minute organic-peel facial. The invigorating treatment includes three rounds of gentle exfoliation, removing dull dermis to uncover natural radiance and make your skin more receptive to moisturizers and praise on public transportation. If pelt polishing isn't your cup of sports drink, opt for a 50-minute soothing facial with a moisturizing mask that restores balance and protects against free radical damage. This option also includes an eyebrow wax treatment. If your face is fine but your back is in agony, put an end to its screaming with an 80-minute Swedish massage, a full-body experience that utilizes long, flowing strokes to reduce muscular tension and gently encourage apathetic circulation into caring once more.
Working as a paramedic for 10 years, Beth Thompson witnessed the damage of unhealthy eating habits up close and personal. Her subsequent studies led her to create Target Metabolism, a health and wellness company that preaches weight loss through accurate analysis of the body and caloric accountability. Here, registered dieticians work with clients to create personal portraits of their metabolic needs, and massage therapists offer treatments to help the body relax during the weight-loss process.
During relaxing spa mani-pedis, Zona grooms and polishes nails with professional care. She tidies cuticles and buffs away dull, dead skin before shaping nails into artful ovals, squares, or trapezoids. Coats of colorful or clear varnish add style and shine to finger- and toe-tips, creating a put-together look that lasts for days on end.
The licensed massage therapists at New U Massage Therapy specialize in soothing achy muscles with their therapeutic bodywork. Clients can solicit a muscle mender's expertise for sports techniques, relaxation-inducing Swedish strokes, or more focused deep-tissue techniques; all of these may be paired with add-ons such as hot towels or essential oils. The studio also offers body waxing and eyelash extension services.
After developing 2,100 barren square feet into a fully custom, comfort-minded space, Dream Weaver Salon & Day Spa opened its doors on August 15, 1999, with a small staff of five pulchritude purveyors. Later expanding to 3,500 square feet and broadening its staff to nine stylists, three nail technicians, three massage therapists, three aestheticians, and three disoriented musketeers, Dream Weaver blossomed into the vast full-service salon and spa flower it is today. A dramatic rounded arch separates the waiting area from the rest of the space, where the certified staff perform a range of beautifying services, including coif coloring, haircuts, mani-pedis, facials, and anxiety-slaying massages.
