Heather Kasper calls upon her diverse skills as a certified massage therapist, aesthetician, and nail tech to perform restorative and relaxing services inside a private room at Elements Salon and Studios. Heather carefully preens appendage-enders during manicures, which include a nail trim and file, cuticle maintenance, and a hand-and-arm massage to melt away tension from long shifts as an arcade claw machine. After a soak, exfoliated feet and legs yield to a deep massage before nail canvases adopt new hues with bright polish and a protective topcoat. Facials begin with a thorough skin consultation to determine which customized Dermalogica cleansers and masks visages crave before the specialist deep cleans pores, exfoliates dull skin, and restores moisture. Tapping trained massage and aromatherapy techniques, Kasper then manipulates pressure points around eyes, cheekbones, and ears to help alleviate sinus pressure and unleash the mind’s buildup of Jeopardy! answers. The relaxing visit culminates with a 30-minute Swedish massage, during which Heather employs long, soothing strokes to increase blood flow, relieve aches, and ease stubborn knots.
