After working professionally as a chemical engineer for eight years, Shelley Banoo decided to direct her deep understanding of molecules and compounds toward improving human chemistry. First acquiring a license as an aesthetician and then as a massage therapist, she blends an intricate understanding of chemical minutiae and a genuine passion for anti-aging skincare science to compile a roster of products that produce real results. Layered technologies are used in customized facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, micro-current, oxygen infusion, and LED light to produce the best results for the client's needs. Having now practiced spa work for 10 years, Banoo has grown accustomed to seeing all types of skin and can sometimes recommend an appropriate regimen of treatment on sight, eschewing tests and intrusive hugs other practitioners often rely on.
In the salt rooms at Salt Mine Arium, the atmosphere is cool and quiet and the walls glow. The two rooms—one for adults and a separate one for children—are composed entirely of pink and white bricks made of Himalayan salt. The design creates an environment full of dry air saturated with negative ions, which can rejuvenate lungs, skin, and sinuses by cleansing them of pollens, pollutants, and toxins. Visitors relax on reclining chairs or practice yoga, enjoying stress-reducing sensory input such as wave sound from live speakers, the gentle splashing of water, and light effects. The rooms also feature a briny fountain and a halo generator that infuse the air with salt mists to further cleanse lungs and breathing passages.
People don't need extravagant decorations and recordings of endlessly babbling brooks in order to relax. The only things necessary are skincare and spa treatments proven to yield results, and Elizabeth Beauty Spa recognizes this. That's why they wield equipment acquired from Italy and France to correct their clients' skin imperfections and contour curves with noninvasive services. Body-slimming technologies sculpt forms with infrared heat that helps the body release toxins or computerized equipment that sends massage-like sensations to contract muscles and gradually push lunch out of reach. Signature facials and microdermabrasion help fight signs of aging, sun damage, and blemishes, and Italy bio cell modulation restores skin with a hybrid of microcurrent and nonthermal light-based technology.
Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Taggart believes in the body's ability to heal itself. As a chiropractor, it's his job to rout out problems that impede the body's natural healing functions. He uses applied kinesiology to test muscles and to determine sources of pain and organ imbalances. He goes a few steps further with rehabilitative exercises, nutritional therapy, adjustments, and neurology-based therapies to heal patients young and old who suffer from chronic conditions.
The dream of every 1950s businessman was to finish a long day with a robe and a pair of slippers delivered by a dog with scientifically engineered hyperintelligence. Though the lab experiments of that era resulted in some B-movie disasters, clients can still opt for the ideal level of comfort when visiting Body Spa.
Before each service, the staff welcomes clients to slip into a complimentary pair of slippers and a robe. Then they can kick back with coffee or tea in the relaxation room. From there, the Body Spa team performs massages in modalities such as deep tissue, hot stone, and Swedish, as well as massages for pregnant women and couples. They also customize spa facials to clear acne bacteria, nourish skin, stimulate collagen production, or repair men's faces from shaving damage. Clients may bookend their relaxing visits by concluding each service with a visit to the alpine sauna.
