Spa BenMarNico's is nestled in the lower level of the downtown Copperleaf Boutique Hotel, and its staff renders facial, hair, nail, and waxing services cataloged on an extensive menu. Spa packages such as the Men's Night Out—which unites a massage with a facial or a back facial and a hand or foot soak—or Girlfriend's Getaway—the same treatment as the Men's Night Out package plus a polish—demonstrate Spa BenMarNico's adaptability to the different genders. In addition to each general spa service, guests gain access to complimentary showers, a whirlpool, and a fitness center, named for its location within the universe.
The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
Licensed therapist Lisa Marshall customizes massage sessions according to her clients’ desires. Specializing in therapeutic and Swedish massage, she reduces the friction of her strokes with oils or lotions rather than vegetable shortening. She also helps alleviate chronic pain by kneading connective tissue with intense pressure during deep-tissue massage and often pairs this massage with heated basalt stones.

Their continuing education allows them to create a dedicated plan for each client without looking into a crystal ball. They also work with medical facilities and health-care providers to help them establish health and fitness routines with their patients.
At Tanglz Salon, airbrush tans are administered by Kerry Hackbarth, a licensed partner of the UV-free and FDA-approved spray-tanning system known as TANS. During her 10- to 15-minute appointments, Kerry hand sprays clients from head to toe with a foundation of DHA—a colorless sugar that darkens the skin through staining—followed by a washable bronzer. Once the bronzer fades, the DHA's staining power leaves the skin up to three shades darker, with results lasting up to 10 days. To prolong results, clients should wait at least eight hours after their treatment before showering or sitting front row at the killer-whale show.
