  • Face by Julia
    At first, Julia Trigila focused solely on lashes. She studied extension work during a career at NovaLash and took on enough clients to become a full-time specialist. On the side, however, her love of makeup artistry drew her to fashion photo shoots and appointments with brides-to-be. She wound up at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics in an endeavor to combine her passions, graduating with well-rounded cosmetic expertise and a renewed respect for skincare. Today, Julia delivers full-on makeovers at her eponymous business. She still performs eyelash extensions in addition to brow shaping and waxing. Her makeup sessions stress the value of a bright, clear canvas, prioritizing a custom application of primer that suits each client's skin type. Julia shies away from overwhelming faces with too much product or an overabundance of racecar flame decals. Instead, she aims to accentuate features with naturally luminous looks for casual wear or wedding events. She also hosts lessons for clients who are curious about applying complementary colors or subtracting blemishes, age spots, and fruit-punch stains from their complexions.

  • Shadow & Trees Massage Therapy
    The word meditation typically calls to mind a feeling of stillness and solitude. Matt DeMichele, however, believes in a shared meditative experience—one that takes place in the muscles as well as the mind. For him, massage is "meditation-in-motion," a way to acknowledge and address the tensions that have restricted one's potential. Since graduating from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy and earning his certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork, Matt has hoped to build this awareness in others and act as a conduit for their body's healing. Each appointment at Shadow and Trees Massage Therapy begins with an in-depth evaluation. Matt logs information on his clients' recurring aches to better customize a mix of modalities, often blending elements of Swedish, orthopedic, and myofascial massage. Having studied with Aaron Mattes, founder of the active-isolated-stretching method, Matt also leads muscles through short, specific stretches to boost their range of motion. A combination of his active isolated stretching and massage can help combat the effects of past injuries, encouraging ease of movement without smearing elbow joints with grease.

  • Integrated Movement and Massage Solutions
    State-licensed massage therapist (license #004958) A. Malaika Sharp cultivates relaxation and targets each client's unique issues with a focused menu of services. She can shoo everyday stress away through basic relaxation massages, but she?s as focused on function as she is on feeling good. An avid martial artist and cyclist, Sharp consults with all clients to understand the ways they use their bodies for work and recreation. That helps her pick out distinct patterns of motion and coax bad habits or stored tension out of muscles, whether she?s targeting chronic aches through deep-tissue techniques or helping athletes recover from strenuous duck-duck-goose training through sports massage. Or, for those suffering from headaches and migraines, she can incorporate trigger-point therapy. Sharp is also a member of the American Massage Therapy Association and is certified through the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork.

  • Anew You Skincare and Wellness Center
    Dedicated to wellness for the entire body, the professional and attentive staff provides a variety of services to soothe and smooth weary soul sacks. The signature facial is a customized treatment that targets fine lines and facial impurities, restoring a hardworking face to its default factory setting. It starts with a relaxing shoulder, arm, and hand massage before a trained aesthetician administers a deep cleansing, an exfoliation enzyme, steam and ozone treatments, and a replenishing mask. For a more assertive approach to restoration, the SkinCeuticals peel and microdermabrasion work in tandem to unclog pores, to reduce the appearances of fine lines and blemishes, to accelerate cell renewal, and to tighten and smooth your outer peel.

  • Balance In Bloom: Therapeutic Massage, LLC
    Life is a balancing act, and licensed massage therapists Grace Parker and Jane Smith do their part to keep their clients centered. Not a thing seems out of proportion at Balance In Bloom: Therapeutic Massage, LLC, where they share a studio. Even their treatment menu seems strikingly balanced between its two main categories of massage: relaxation and remedial. The former incorporates light and moderate pressure coupled with heat, gentle kneading, and aromatherapy. The latter covers different territory, targeting areas of specific pain with friction, percussion, and heat or ice. In addition to these flagship modalities, Grace and Jane offer quick massages for the feet, hands, or face and couples massages that relieve stress more effectively than pedaling a tandem bicycle across a tranquil lake.
