The relaxation pros at Nu-Bourne Spa & Massage help their clients unwind with a range of soothing services. Solo and couples massages send knots and tension floating into the ether. Salt Glow body scrubs exfoliate skin to leave folks radiant, and body wraps envelops bodies in warm cocoons that help smooth cellulite or flush out toxins. Men’s and women’s waxing sessions leave stubble in the dust, whereas facials leave complexions more radiant than a pregnant sunflower.
Xenon International Academy's accredited beauty-school curriculum trains fledgling spa and salon technicians in the ways of the scissors and the cucumber slice. These able aesthetician aspirants perform the Academy's variety of services under the watchful eye of a licensed and experienced instructor. With a customized facial treatment ($30), they'll replace your face's neon-green glow with a healthier radiance by cleansing, exfoliating, and balancing dizzy skin tissue. An acne-clearing treatment ($36–$40) targets and evicts any insurgent blackheads, whiteheads, and inflamed redheads that have been vandalizing your pores. Broken, tattered, or torn nails can be carefully repaired for $3, and more ambitious customers can luxuriate in a complete French manicure ($18–$19) before chasing it with a spa pedicure ($24–$25) in a throne chair salvaged from the spa in Tutankhamun’s tomb. A trained sculptor of scalp whiskers can tame your hairy head monster into a stylish new 'do ($7–$8), then color it ($28–$30) so that you blend in with the fall foliage and evade hungry ogres on quiet walks through the forest.
Slate Creek Center doesn't limit its attention to surface beauty. Although a team of aestheticians can add a smoldering flair to glances with pharmaceutical-grade Novalash extensions, or smooth skin with facials and scrubs, the rest of the staff delves much deeper. In keeping with Slate Creek Center's mission to instill a holistic sense of well-being, trainers condition muscles and melt away fat with fitness classes. Massage therapists wait in the wings to mollify overworked tendons. Traditional therapists are even available to focus on the mind, helping patrons talk through their worries or by employing techniques such as hypnosis.
The space itself further engenders a sense of whole-body calm. A gentle soundtrack of classical music and the scents of aromatherapy emanate throughout. An infrared sauna warms the body from its core out, relieving pain and melting undigested snow-cones. An on-site boutique lets outgoing guests carry this peace home with hand-picked cosmeceutical products by makers such as Eminence and Jane Iredale.
