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.
To perform the most soothing massage possible, the licensed massage therapists at Scents & SenseAbilities tailor treatments to each individual’s personal aches and pains. Beyond classic Swedish and deep-tissue styles, the specialists harness alternative modalities such as ACE cupping and bamboo massage to evict more stubborn knots. Sessions find a tranquil complement in hand and foot treatments, facials, and aromatherapy that invigorates with the smell of lavender or comforts with scents of kitten yawns. The therapists will also emerge from their pampering haven to perform on-site massage services for larger parties.
Taking a natural, holistic, preventative approach to wellness is the goal of Stephanie Paylor at Tranquil Touch, where she uses her skills as a massage therapist to provide relaxation and stress relief. First assessing the source of tension or discomfort, Stephanie tailors her services to each client, providing deep-tissue massage for recurring pain or sports injuries, Swedish massage to relax and relieve tension, and prenatal massage for bun ovens.
360 Tan & Day Spa's skin treatments snub harsh chemicals in favor of an all-natural enzyme that packs just as powerful a punch. The enzyme scrubs away dull, dingy skin cells and then plumbs pores’ depths in search of dirt and oils. These treatments are all the more effective when Youth 4 Life’s team performs skin analyses before them, since the process helps the team determine the skin's condition and resilience against high wind speeds.
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.
