Pure Wellness Center?s philosophy is simple: listen to each of its clients, always make them feel comfortable, and provide them with the highest-quality services and products. Using organic ingredients and handmade skincare products are just a few of the ways the health-minded therapists demonstrate their passion for natural health and beauty. Elina Organics skincare products, which are personally handmade by Elina Fedotova?a cosmetic chemist and herbalist?spruce up skin without the use of harsh chemicals or insults.
The center's staff devotes its efforts to helping trigger the body?s ability to heal itself. Meditation classes and massages foster the mind-body connections and deep, focused relaxation necessary to vanquish stress. In addition to personal-training sessions, Pure Wellness offers deep tissue and other massages from a certified therapist.
Perfect Image Salon, an Aveda Concept salon, is concerned with taking that extra step to ensure that patrons feel pampered and are able to decompress from the outside world. That's why guests sip cups of complimentary tea, infused with peppermint and licorice root, as they wait for a waxing service or settle in for a shampoo, conditioning, and stress-relieving Blue Oil neck massage. The salon's custom facials, which utilize Aveda's plant-based products, always begin with a footbath, and their makeup products are made from ingredients such as Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, and the tears of ripe berries with pure hearts.
To make each experience truly relaxing, Perfect Image Salon lets guests pick a complimentary service to enjoy during their visits: a soothing neck and shoulder massage, a hand massage, an aromatic steam towel during their shampoo, or a makeup touch-up at the end of the reservation
A picture of a serene pond dappled with water lilies seems to imbue the treatment room at Trocoa Skin Acumen with the calm of a woodland hideaway. Candles glow by the floral bedspread and the gray-green walls, chasing stress from clients' minds as aestheticians pamper skin with custom facials that treat a range of conditions. The Urban Renewal facial, for example, uses the powerful antioxidant vitamin C to reverse sun and environmental damage caused by bathing in radiation in order to gain superpowers. Fruit acids shrink blemishes during the Defiant Acne facial, and the sensitive-skin facial likewise channels natural ingredients, including chamomile and green tea.
Though the spa's staff members specialize in these examples of noninvasive skincare, they also administer chemical peels, waxing services, permanent makeup, and teeth-whitening treatments.
Aesthetician Brenda has been repairing problematic skin for nearly 30 years. Her facials—categorized as restorative, replenishing, and normalizing—gently combat everything from excess oil and dry patches to acne. She also has a special, corrective back treatment that exfoliates skin and extracts dirt from pores and wings.
The stylists at Universal Images Salon and Spa call on the likes of Matrix Biolage, Moroccanoil, Redken, and other professional-grade products to grant men and women's hair with flattering new looks. Spa treatments ranging from manicures and massages to facials and makeup applications ease stress and nourish skin, while the front of the salon features a jewelry boutique to enhance revamped looks or comfort necks mourning the loss of their split-end friends.
