Within its intimate spa space, the professionally trained team of nimble-fingered professionals at Brio assuages weary hands and feet with an indulgent duo of manicure and pedicure services. During the manicure, guests select from a shaken libation of puckered pink-lemonade, blueberry, or apple-martini flavors that tartly unhinges the senses. Finger and toe shields are sufficiently soaked, trimmed, clipped, and filed before they are topped with an armored color of choice. Set aside an hour with your mates or cabin boys to rove Brio's seas of undulated relaxation, where you can share cocktails while spreading unsubstantiated rumors.
At Schinnerer Chiropractic, Inc., Dr. David Schinnerer has been combating pain with low-risk spinal adjustments and physical therapy for more than 20 years.

Alongside the holistic health-care practitioner, a certified massage therapist supplements pain relief with soothing massage strokes.
Faccia Bella Beauty Studio’s staff primps clients with a diverse selection of aesthetic services—they can render anything from a simple brow wax to body-slimming therapy. Aestheticians can whisk guests past the wood cabinetry-outfitted styling area to the skin treatment area for microdermabrasions and enzyme peels that mitigate visible signs of aging, and their permanent makeup applications can fill in brows, darken eyelines, and add color to lips. With Aveda products, hairstylists render exquisite styles, or they can manipulate texture with perms or Japanese straightening treatments. Alternatively, nail technicians adorn digits with crackle and long-lasting gel polish—they can even do a Chuck Taylor sneaker design that looks uncannily real. The staff even goes beyond aesthetics, offering personalized massages that address any problem areas, such as an attic that has so many cobwebs you have to contort your way through it and hurt your back.
