One look at Rituals’ menu of spa services tells clients there’s a nurturing or beautifying treatment for most any body part, covering the likes of hair design, mani-pedis, hair removal, and detoxifying footbaths. Facials—such as the Coconut Bliss facial—moisturize and repair skin, and imbue it with nutrients. Aestheticians also wield cosmetic LED lights that rewind the clock on aging by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and making skin think it now lives in a disco. The staff also includes licensed massage therapists who knead Swedish and deep-tissue massages.
Armed with pharmaceutical-grade products, Creek Stone Med Spa's professionals help clients combat the signs of aging and escape the stresses of everyday life. At the Burlington location physician-assisted specialists administer medical weightloss assistance and back treatments and use potent Botox, Radiesse, Latisse, and Juvéderm injections to diminish the appearance of wrinkles on clients' faces or Richard Nixon Halloween masks. At the Thomasville location, beauty specialists pamper clients literally from head to toe with spa treatments including hair straightening, skincare services with Hungarian ingredients, and pedicures with Éminence Organic scrubs. Physician-assisted weightloss programs and aesthetic medical treatments are also available here.
Dedicated bodywork experts Julia Groome Allred and Megan Allred specialize in relaxation and therapeutic massage, but they offer an array of assorted massage modalities to engineer customized treatments around clients’ needs. The team calms minds and dissolves tension with such diverse techniques as oncology massage, reiki, and reflexology, and frequently de-stresses champion badminton partners during couples massages. Each service assuages aches amid the idyllic environs of The Groome Inn, a 1900s farmhouse turned into an elegant bed and breakfast that's nestled on 8 acres of lush woods, native North Carolina vegetation, and singing birds that happily field song requests.
The licensed massage therapists at Body and Soul Studio work with clients to relax tight muscles and promote healing through their hot-stone, deep-tissue, Swedish, and cupping massages. Each 60-minute massage is customized for relieving particular points of tension in each client, and the studio is private and soothingly decorated.
Administered by Dr. Vijay Gandla, each microdermabrasion delicately buffs away dry and damaged skin, like a gentle breeze eroding accumulated peanut butter. The quick and comfortable 35-minute treatment strips off the entire outer layer of skin to reveal the fresh, new layer underneath. Patients struggling with acne, signs of aging, and sun damage can shed a weathered complexion and replace it with a vibrant sheen that shimmers like the surface of a lake at twilight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Because of Magnolia Medical Spa's clean, cozy treatment rooms and accommodating staff, microdermabrasions there are more unintimidating and relaxing than lounging on a La-Z-Boy clearing pores with clingy duct tape at home.
Co-owner of Natural Healing and Massage Linda Clapp Tripp works to harness healing energy and soothe her clients' aches and pains during her signature reiki treatments. In addition to reiki, Tripp also specializes in integrative reflexology, which targets health issues at foot level by stimulating pressure points.
