TN Nails & Spa’s staff pampers guests with the promised nail treatments, but the service menu also catalogs hair, skin, massage, and makeup services. Using the utmost hygienic procedures, nail technicians trim and shape nails and clean cuticles using sanitized nail kits. Hairstylists provide a shampoo and scalp massage before cutting hair and fashioning it into a desired look. The beauty professionals highlight facial features with permanent makeup and lash enhancements that reduce the need for mascara or gunpowder mixed with glitter as a mascara substitute. Meanwhile, aestheticians refresh faces and treat dull, flaky, or acne-prone skin with Dermalogica products.
Inside Happy Feet's serene and contemporary salon, guests are free to let their brains and extremities relax to the soothing soundtrack saturating the space and the rhythmic touches tingling their toe- and fingertips. The signature reflexology session—40 minutes of hand, arm, and foot reflexology and 20 minutes of back, shoulder, and neck massage—grants total body care through pinpoint pressure and elongated stretching. Both relaxing and therapeutic, the hourlong session can provide relief for general pain, stiffness, headaches, fatigue, sleep disorders, chilly bloods, and a long list of other ailments. Throughout the session, lounging visitors can either offer direction—for specific areas in need of attention—or kick back, feel the flow, and dream about tiptoeing across undulating jellyfish seas.
Owner Magdalen Lagergren was born in Nairobi, where her Kenyan name is Karugi Karanja, which means "little cook.” This name turned out to be prophetic: as a child, Magdalen made her own facial creams and masks from local fruits and vegetables. As an adult in the United States, she fostered her passion for skincare with formal training at Yvonne de Vilar Scientific Skin Care in Vienna, Virginia, and after graduating in 2004, she earned her aesthetics license and immediately went to work at local spas.
Today, at her own practice, Magdalen takes point guiding a staff of two licensed aestheticians to soothe skin with specialized facials and perform microdermabrasion, waxing, and body services with Dermalogica and Vivant skincare products. Four licensed massage therapists draw on a variety of techniques to ease specific aches and pains or combine them all in an attempt to create Voltron.

Much in the way that veins circulate blood throughout the body, meridians facilitate the flow of the bodies' electrical energy—or chi—from organ to organ. Armed with this understanding, the specialists at Meridian & Facial Spa aim to keep meridians flowing smoothly with a variety of Chinese practices performed inside vibrantly colored treatment rooms. The team members frequently perform the spa’s signature Meridian massage, which aids in the body’s natural detoxification process by targeting chi highways and breaking up traffic jams like a siren-blaring ambulance strapped to the top of a monster truck. And as the spa's name suggests, the staff performs more than just meridian-inspired services, including facials and peels administered by cosmetologists.
At 355 Barbershop & Spa, an experienced massage therapist uses careful movements to elevate weary bodies to a state of relaxed bliss. The 30-minute Swedish massage blends five different types of long, gentle strokes and gentle pressure to melt tension and pent-up stress faster than a thermos of hot cocoa melts the heart of a snowman. As the specialist targets taps and kneads, the soothing suite also helps contribute to increased circulation and a boosted immune system, leaving clients feeling both invigorated and at ease.
