Sports Massages and Post-Marathon Remedies

This coming Sunday, over 18,000 runners will take their mark and get set to run a marathon or half marathon in the Columbus Marathon. Running a race of this caliber is no easy feat-if you're a runner, you understand all of the time and training that goes into preparation. If you are a spectator, you most likely can't even fathom what would drive people to sign up and run that kind of distance to begin with. Either way, after the race is done and your feet have crossed the finish line, your muscles will be a *little* sore. Just sayin'!


Here at The Charles Penzone Salons, we have a deep appreciation for healthy and fitness, and we want to let our Columbus Marathon runners know that there are service you can schedule ahead of time to ease your post-race soreness.

For targeted muscle soreness, try our Kinesio Taping, available only at our Dublin salon.

Use as an add-on service in addition to your massage. During this add-on service to any massage, your condition will be assessed by our Kinesio Taping Certified Practitioner and the area of concern will be taped. This process is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion. 15 mins, $20. Additional tape applications $10/each. (Available at Dublin, only)


You can also get Kinesio Taping as a solo service. During this stand alone service, your condition will be assessed by our Kinesio Taping Certified Practitioner and the area of concern will be taped. 30 minutes, $40. Additional tape applications are $10/each. (Available at Dublin, only).

For more intense muscle relief, try one of our massages. Our Deep Tissue Sports Massage targets deep muscle tissue to release tension, relieve stiffness, and soothe sore muscles. The technique used in this massage helps improve muscle function. Feel free to schedule a Deep Tissue Sports Massage at any of our Grand Salons in Dublin, Polaris, or New Albany/Gahanna for relief you can look forward to. These hour-long massages start at $91.


Other suggested massages:

Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Rachel Barber

Rachel Barber will be attending Charles Penzone Salons' Mother Daughter Spa Day for the third year, and is really looking forward to that haircut and style!

Rachel, almost 16, was born with a disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB for short). EB is a skin disorder that makes Rachel's skin very fragile and causes blisters and wounds all over her body. EB is not contagious, but it will require Rachel to wear full body bandages to protect her skin and to promote healing. Despite having this debilitating disorder all her life, Rachel lives her life like a normal teenager. She is even in the process of getting her driver's license!


Get to know Rachel:

What hobbies do you have?
Rachel: Reading, listening to music, hanging out with my friends, and watching TV

What is your favorite class?
Rachel: Math

What inspires you?
Rachel: Music!

We're looking forward to seeing Rachel and her mother again in a few weeks!

Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Katy Ferris

Each year, we're fortunate enough to open our to young girls with life-threatening illnesses. Named "Mother Daughter Spa Day," this event serves as a time to pamper these strong survivors, accompanied by their mothers. This year we welcome back Katy Ferris.


Katy Ferris was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at  three and half years old, and received chemotherapy that resulted in losing her hair twice. When her hair grew back and was long enough to donate, she went to The Charles Penzone Salon at Polaris Parkway to get the cut. To this day, she says that it was a wonderful experience and she will always remember it.

                                                  

Katy is 18 years old, and recently graduated from Pickerington High School. She will attend Central Ohio Technical College and major in Web Design in August. This will be her third year attending Mother Daughter Spa Day and she looks forward to getting a pedicure every year. And, we can't wait to pamper her later this month!

Cliff Original-New Men's Grooming Line to Hit the Salons!

The Charles Penzone Salons are happy to introduce Cliff Original- a local men's grooming line for the most dapper. Their mission is to provide organic men's grooming products available. Locally sourced, their products such as Beard Oil, Hair Arousal Wax, Beard Comb Bottle Opener, and Face Wash Brick, are bringing old school hygiene back to the boys. Their products are so manly and honest, we can't help but melt over them. Let's bring back that side part, the slicked back hair, the mustached, and most importantly, men's grooming products!

The Charles Penzone Salons are especially excited to introduce Cliff Original because 10% of their profits go to local charities in need. Pretty nifty. To pick up the goods, visit any of our salon locations!
