In a world full of constant hustle and bustle, stress seems to be an accepted part of life. In fact, 77 percent of the population admits to experiencing the mental and physical symptoms of stress on a daily basis. Naturally, these kinds of stresses have a negative effect on your skin, hair and emotions. At Azur West, the ultimate goal is to design a unique experience that brings you back into balance and leaves you feeling renewed, recharged and ready to take on the world.
Azur West, a Shu Uemura Salon
From the moment you walk in the door of Azur West, your relaxing experience begins. Azur West is simply designed to promote a sense of escape from the chaos lurking outside. The natural light flows through the salon, providing you with a sense of warmth from every angle. Every detail of this modern salon has been planned to feel open and roomy, leaving your stressful life far behind. In fact, the salon was recognized by the American Society of Interior Designers in 2011 for Best Retail Design.
Hot Stone Massage
Massage is not only a relaxing service; it also offers both mental and physical health benefits including pain relief and increased blood circulation in your tissues. Azur West offers a glorious hot stone experience on your neck and shoulders with any Shu Uemura Hair Ceremony, improving circulation throughout the tissues of the neck and shoulders, providing almost instant benefits. Relieve anxiety, neck pain, arthritis and many more issues through the relaxing power of massage.
With each salon service, a heavenly scalp massage is performed. Scalp massage is proven to increase the circulation to hair follicles, condition the scalp and strengthen the roots of hair. The increased blood flow to hair follicles results in an increased nutrient intake, allowing for healthy hair growth.
A reduction in stress or anxiety can have a lasting impact on your life in many different ways. For example, relaxation triggers a drop in blood pressure while also directing the brain to release the “feel-good” chemicals dopamine and serotonin. Reduced levels of stress hormones also allow the body to function in top shape, enhancing the ability of hair follicles. Azur West knows that the experience created within the salon is about much more than a single service provided…it’s about the total experience.
