Kristin Lowrey, a certified massage therapist and aromatherapist, invigorates frazzled frames with healing touches and organic products in her relaxing treatment room. A 30-minute head, neck, and back massage realigns spines curved from prematurely performed candy cane impersonations. Using various massage methodologies, such as Swedish and deep tissue, Kristin parts seas of tension, leaving muscles as relaxed as Atlas post-retirement. An herb infused salt glow body polish gently exfoliates corporeal covers, leaving behind well-moisturized skin.

PureLife Wellness Solutions' staffers dedicate themselves to helping their patients further their individual health goals, coaxing toxins from bodies, battling cellulite and stretch marks, and working to help relieve stress and discomfort with aesthetic and wellness services. After complimentary initial consultations, staffers deftly perform noninvasive body-contouring and facial treatments that aim to tighten skin and shed inches so that patrons can more easily hide behind telephone poles. IV treatments further guide patients toward health, with cocktails designed to boost energy, provide assistance to flagging immune systems, or assist with struggles with addiction, depression, and chronic fatigue.

A follicular fashionista weaves the bold colors and intricate patterns of a three-piece feather extension into lackluster locks, bequeathing noggins with bursts of avian flair and the confidence of a peacock at a penguin wedding. Each 5- to 10-inch feather is affixed to hair with a silicon bead, and the process usually takes about 15 minutes. The colorful tufts can endure washing, curling, and flat-ironing and may last up to three months, or until the feathers burst into flames and reincarnate.
Stonebrook Day Spa caters to pampering needs with a soothing selection of massages, manicures, and facials. The unique Valentine's Day facial begins with a deep cleaning, exfoliating, and toning ($55). The aesthetician's nimble fingers also attend to the delicate skin around the eyes ($10). Then, a skin specialist applies a mask made with chocolate, a blend of antioxidants, and the Colonel's spices (a $2 add-on). As the mask primps pores, staffers administer a soothing massage of the arms, scalp, neck, and shoulders. Hands and feet also receive reflexology treatment ($18), and then the facial-focused experience concludes with a soothing application of the Stonebrook Day Spa’s own blend of seasonally fragrant lotions.
