Exhalation massage's master massage therapist blends the soothing powers of stretching, Swedish massage, and aromatherapy into a total-body relaxation experience. Prior to the tension-abolishing massage, she increases guests' circulation while unwinding coiled musculature with stretches. The long glissades of Swedish massage then spread blissful waves of relief across sore muscles and calm hyperactive minds. During the massage, the revitalizing scents of spearmint and eucalyptus fill the air, freeing up congestion and crayons and de-stressing patrons while lifting mood.
Uniting life-coaching and esthetics under one holistic roof, New Beginnings Wellness Spa refines minds and reshapes bodies through a profusion of well-making services. The three-part detoxification session blasts off with GX-99 endermatheraphy, a relaxing vibratory massage amped up by attachments said to stimulate circulation, eliminate fat, and put the finishing touches on cell-phone impersonations. Bodies carry on cleansing with an herbal body wrap, as technicians coat skin in an epidermis-doting mixture, swathing spa-goers in coffee, essential oils, and herbs. Detox trilogies conclude with the client's choice of an alpha deluxe spa capsule session or tea wet steam bath. The pod-shaped alpha capsule encases would-be cosmonauts in an ergonomically contoured bed, abetting metabolism and willing weight loss through a sauna-like dry-heat system. Alternately, the tea steam bath exposes skin to perspiration-producing vapor, clearing glands of bacteria, eliminating epidermal impurities, and preparing bodies for foreign-exchange trips to the Elemental Plane of Fire.
Aesthetician Tammy Oehlert burnishes facial terrains to a glossy gleam using organic plant-, fruit-, and vegetable-based products. During microdermabrasion sessions, she'll gingerly sluice the face with a stream of coarse exfoliants, sloughing away sullied skin layers, pore pollutants, and dust-mite cigar stubs. This mug-mending procedure may also help to smooth away scars and blemishes over time. Afterwards, she'll regale your frontispiece with a facial designed to firm up and rehydrate your skin so you can pleasantly emote on dates, at weddings, or in James Cagney impersonation contests.
Just like hairstyles, names can change. In late 1999, the Gonzalez siblings opened a salon called Dolce Divino. More than a decade and many advanced training sessions with experts later, the salon has been rechristened. Atelier Salon specializes in french haircutting and balayage highlights, and its work has been featured in Vogue, Elle, W, and Allure. Its stylists undergo weekly advanced training sessions to make sure they stay on the cutting edge of style techniques and haircut-related puns.
You'll see Body-N-Balance's tidily uniformed spa therapists in their treatment rooms, of course. But if you're a guest at the Omni Hotel that holds the Body-N-Balance location, you might also see them just about anywhere on the grounds, greeting new arrivals and offering suggestions for nearby restaurants.
It's not a sign that the massage therapists are distracted from their work, however. Body-N-Balance founders Loyd and Monique Wellesley met in massage school, but their vision of service extends far beyond the treatment table. They aim to make guests, including couples, feel welcome and relaxed whether they're in town for a convention or just stopping by for a facial. To that end, they pay close attention not just to the massage strokes, but to the ambience and aromas surrounding their treatments. Those treatments often pamper the skin as well as the muscles, making for multisensory experiences that have won a lot of fans, such as Jessica Skropanic of Worldwide Spa Review who described the back scrub as, "heavenly!"
As the company's mantra states, the staff of Physicians Medi-Spa aim to help clients reverse the various processes that wreak havoc on the skin and body. Under supervision from the doctors that own the spa, aesthetic technicians use an arsenal of elōs lasers and radio-frequency technology to unburden skin of signs of age, unwanted tattoos, and excess hair. Customers can avoid the invasive nature and downtime of plastic surgery with CoolSculpting treatments that target fat deposits, or Ultherapy ultrasound sessions that tighten facial skin loosened from years of playing checkers against high-powered fans.
