In 2002, the Austin Chronicle named Vickmay Skin and Body Spa the "Best Place to Fight the Ravages of Time" on its annual "Best of Austin" list. Three years later, the paper was still singing the praises of Vickmay's "magical treatments." It's fitting that a spa known for seemingly stopping aging in its tracks maintains a record of unchanging client satisfaction.
That focus on excellence is demonstrated in all of Vickmay's treatments, which range from advanced anti-aging therapies to more traditional spa procedures. Botox injections relax frown lines, while the light-based technologies of Laser Genesis and Cutera systems address uneven complexions, tighten lax skin, or reduce hair growth. But the haven also stays true to its spa moniker, offering indulgent services such as aromatherapy massages and champagne facials.

The staff at Massage Harmony operates under the philosophy that everything about a massage?from scheduling the appointment to the moment you get off the treatment table?should be stress-free. That's why both of Massage Harmony's locations book massage appointments until 9 p.m. every day of the week, ensuring even clients with busy schedules can find the time for relaxation. Teams of licensed massage therapists harness the healing powers of a range of modalities ranging from classic Swedish massage to foot-focused ashiatsu bar therapy, which uses the therapist's clean, soft feet to administer deep pressure. During sessions that last 30, 60, or 90 minutes, clients repose in a treatment room designed to facilitate relaxation as effectively as waterbed filled with warm milk.
