Calming Influence balances new energy in Overton Square
By Gene Elliot/Calming Influence salon
A buzz is in the air for Midtown’s Overton Square expansion — just picture a revitalized area rich with local theatre, restaurants, shopping and, well, just hanging about. So cool, so Midtown — and coming so soon!
Calming Influence Salon is embracing this change, while also celebrating our fifth year in business serving Cooper-Young and the rest of Midtown. We now have a new and improved look — more to offer, and more of that eclectic Midtown feel.
So what’s new, you ask? We have been designing a pampering package for mothers-to-be. This package offers many components that can be performed individually or together for an amazing spa experience. We are excited to be offering belly casting for the expectant mothers, which creates a plaster mold of the mother’s pregnant stomach. This is not only soothing but is also a one-of-a-kind beautiful keepsake. Artists are on hand to paint the casting if desired. If moms-to-be want a full-pamper day, packages are available which include belly casting, belly facials and scrub, a reflexology foot treatment and a one hour pregnancy massage.
In addition to the new prenatal offerings, Calming Influence is pleased to announce the addition of experienced Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy practitioner Maury Ballenger to our staff of qualified therapists. Maury, a fellow CYCA Membership Sponsor, is one of the very few massage therapists who is certified and specializes in Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy in Memphis. Although she has been offering discounts to CYCA Members from her downtown studio since last year, she is excited to now be able to provide these services closer to Cooper-Young.
To kick off our new makeover, Calming Influence will be celebrating on Sept. 20 by hosting our Five Year Anniversary Party. Please join us at 74 N. Cooper from 5:30-8 p.m. for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres from Fork It Over catering, live music, door prizes and contests. On display will be actual belly casts, photos and a list of our wide range of services. Bring in this ad for a 10 percent-off coupon and, as always, gift certificates are available for purchase.
Thank you for making our first five years wonderful — we are so looking forward to many, many more. Cheers to our new makeover and to the future of Overton Square … Relax! It’s Midtown!
