At Neal's, a team of highly trained pampering professionals apply the latest age- and ache-combating techniques to restore beauty and bliss to flushed faces and embattled backs. During the customized, one-hour European facial, an aesthetician will perform an analysis of the frumpled face in question before administering a thorough cleansing and exfoliating vegetable peel to exorcise the ear-framed masterpiece of dead, dry skin cells (a $70 value). Afterward, a facial massage kneads away tenderness and eases facial stress brought on by years of awkward elevator small talk.
Even though it's called The Face Place, the team at the full-service salon treats clients from head to toe. Inside the clean, modern space with warm orange colors and hardwood floors, spa professionals perform soothing lotus flower mud body treatments, aromatherapy facials and relaxing manicures. Acupuncturists free up energy pathways, and massage therapists melt tension with hot-stone massages. The team even helps beautify folks from the inside out with fitness classes, such as meditation, tai chi and hula hooping.
Roughly 5,000 pounds of Himalayan salt carpet the floor of The Salt Vault's relaxing treatment room, where soundtracks of waves crashing overlaid with instrumental music create the ambiance of a pink indoor beach. Clients unwind in the room's zero-gravity lounge chairs as they breathe in the dry salt air, which some have found to ease ailments of the sinuses and skin. Large salt lamps cast a soothing glow on those searching for relief from breathing troubles and skin irritations.
