Changes Salon & Spa pampers paws and bodies with an array of salon services administered in its 4,000-square-foot salon. The mani-pedi cossets northern and southern mini-extremities for an hour each, starting with a neck wrap to achieve the relaxed boxer effect. An aesthetician dips hands in an herbal bath and then hums an upbeat tune until till cuticles and nails are shipshape. Hands and arms submit to a soothing massage with one of Changes’ moisturizing lotions and then let nails take center stage with a colourful ballet for 10. The pedicure adds a whirlpool foot bath to the neck wrap, and the aesthetician makes quick work of cuticles and calluses. Calves' and feet’s rough spots become nectarine-smooth after a brisk exfoliation, and below-the-knee territory finds further balm in a moisturizing massage, followed by a polish application.
With the mani-pedi option, hands and feet can commandeer the throat and vocally express a preference for two additional options from the Changes’ smorgasbord. Choose a moisturizing and tension-banishing paraffin treatment; an anti-aging peel, masque, and cream to launch hands and feet into a time capsule; a deep-heated stone massage; or a foot mask or scrub. Paws with a sweet tooth may prefer an organic brown sugar exfoliating treatment, and those with a dirt tooth may enjoy a purifying organic mud mask.
During the one-hour Reiki treatment, relaxation-seeking clients lie on a massage table or chair in a softly lit room while an experienced practitioner administers the Japanese stress-reduction technique with his or her hands gently on or hovering over the body. Designed to relax and detoxify the body, Reiki can be targeted to the whole soul-suitcase from head to feet or concentrate on the body’s energy field, or aura, alone. Sleepiness, a surge of energy, laughter, and a host of other emotions are common responses to the treatment, which adherents say infuses humans with vitality, as well as the impulse to leap over tall buildings in a single bound or four quarter-bounds.
