A Time to Spa provides a relaxing, Tuscan-style space inspired by Tusca to recharge human beings who seek an hour of transcendent escape during their busy week. Much like cookie dough that needs to have chocolate chips, eggs, flour, and sugar added to it as hungry bakers preemptively eat it, the human body is a vessel that requires cogent pampering if it's to ever survive. The experienced healing hands at A Time to Spa treat clients to blissful massages such as today's featured aromatherapy massage, a treatment that creates an olfactory oasis out of the combined effervescence of grapeseed oil packed with antioxidants and the complimentary essential oil of your choosing. As the pacifying scents travel from your nose to your brain, gentle manipulations reassure your muscles that relief is always within reach.
Vanity Avenue's custom spray tanning uses personalized formulas for different skin types. Vanity Avenue's organic-based product aims to steer clear of orange skin; instead, your skin tone will approach that of an evenly toned, beautiful third-place medal. Each session takes less than five minutes and lasts 10 days. Whether you're trying to impress a blind date, properly pamper your skin before a wedding, or one-up a sunnied coworker, spray tans are an excellent choice for a quick coat of butterscotch derma-topping.
The owner of Extasis Salon & Spa draws from 30 years of experience and training—with such major hair brands as Vidal Sassoon, Matrix, and Redken—to create a place where every client feels unique. She guides a team of beauty professionals, each with a unique set of specialized skills. A member of the team greets each client when they enter and offers a consultation to pair them with the beauty professional best suited to bring the client's vision to life. This personalized care fulfills the salon's promise to make sure no client feels like a number, not even the series of ones and zeros that androids process to understand human love. The stylists work separately from the aestheticians and massage therapists in Extasis's 5,000-square-foot hair studio and private spa, named one of Cleveland's top 15 day spas by the Fox 8 Hotlist. Stylists design and color hair in the airy studio, and aestheticians and massage therapists perform body therapies inside treatment areas that are kept private and are decorated with gentle soothing tones to create a more serene experience.
At EuroSpa, founder Veronika Moran, who was trained at both an aesthetics school and dermatology school in Hungary, draws upon 20 years of experience to beautify patrons with spa services that find her sprinkling clients with Éminence Organic products. The all-natural ingredients in this skincare line from Hungary are handpicked and mixed in small batches and combined with thermal hot-spring water. Veronika chose this line in order to give her clients a more upscale spa experience without requiring the staff to wear tuxedos.
This devotion to luxury is seen the spa's facials, which lavish skin with Hungarian moor mud and blueberry peels, body wraps, which cocoon guests in mint or chocolate, and makeup applications, which transform faces with Youngblood mineral cosmetics. It's also evident in the high-tech far-infrared sauna and the private rooms for mani-pedis.
LED lights recessed in the walls of YeloSpa’s private treatment rooms glow in the resident’s chosen color as custom aromatherapy scents float in on gusts of purified air, laying the groundwork for a fully tailored spa experience. Unconventional treatments include power naps on thickly cushioned YeloChairs, which recline to produce a feeling of weightlessness, and relaxation sessions atop gently vibrating, wing-shaped AlphaLoungers. Upon each client's entry, YeloSpa swathes senses in a color scheme inspired by the robes and sashes of Tibetan monks, reinforcing the staff’s commitment to holistic wellness and never mixing black and navy.
Lava Massage Studio owner Laura Pacanin helms a team of licensed massage therapists, all of whom share her belief in massage’s unique ability to relieve stress and stimulate the body's natural healing processes. At sessions held in your home or in one of the studio’s private rooms, the therapists draw on their knowledge of Eastern and Western healing modalities to dissipate buildups of tension. Their signature Thai massages incorporate elements of yoga and acupuncture to balance the body’s out-of-whack energies; hot-stone massages take it a step further, combining Thai strokes with the soothing warmth of heated basalt stones. Among the modalities more commonly seen in a Western spa, sports massages help the body recover from injuries incurred while slam-dunking or arm-wrestling with the opposing team’s mascot.
Laura and her crew supplement their bodywork treatments with add-ons such as exfoliating foot scrubs and migraine therapy. After your appointment, visit the studio’s shop to stock up on unconventional beauty products such as goat's-milk soap and housemade sugar scrubs.
