Tropical Sun Tanning owner Donyell Brown guides a team of tanning experts, massage therapists, and hairstylists as they help customers pursue overall beauty and wellness. Inside private rooms featuring warm wood accents, massage therapists employ the gliding strokes of Swedish massage and hot stones to ease tense muscles. Haircuts and color services revamp manes, whereas makeup applications prep customers for date nights. Patrons can obtain a tan while reclining in a tanning bed outfitted with a radio, standing in a tanning booth, or applying Norvell sunless spray-tan formula.
The heat from smooth stones spreads gently through the skin and muscles, easing tension and helping Massage Studio & Spa?s therapists relax their clients? backs. Hot-stone massage, one of five massage modalities the studio?s staff offers, soothes the muscles of solo patrons or couples in sessions up to 90 minutes in length. The roster of services includes therapeutic massage, which uses neural muscular therapy to release pain in specific areas, as well as Swedish massage, deep-tissue massage, and sports massage, which lasts nine innings. However, the relaxation doesn't stop there. On the spa side, aestheticians help clients look as good as they feel with revitalizing services ranging from facials to body wraps and scrubs. They even offer teeth whitening treatments, brightening clients' smiles before sending them on their way.

It's easier to make a good first impression when you look someone in the eyes. ReNew You Massage & Spa’s massage therapist, Bre Thibodaux, prefers to focus her attention on backs as she relieves stress and assuages pain with a diverse spread of massage styles. Along with her massage specialties—the gentle strokes of Swedish and the more intense pressure of deep-tissue massage—Thibodaux can manipulate pressure points on the feet during reflexology sessions to balance systems throughout the body, or improve the body's natural energy flow with reiki treatments. To complement massages, aesthetician Emily Eastman can refine physiques with spa treatments. Her facials and peels address skin conditions from acne to signs of aging, and waxing services eradicate stubble without the hassle buying a razor or domesticating a lawnmower.
An earth-toned interior with red accents and geometric wall art lends a funky vibe to After Fx Spa and Salon. At first glance, the menu of services seems to be that of a classic salon and spa: hair, nails, waxing, and massage treatments, each performed by a talented expert. Every service category, however, features less-traditional specialties that stand out from the expected. Massage therapists overhaul their clients’ energy stores with reiki treatments, and nail technicians summon miniature Picassos who create intricate designs. For a skincare boost, the light from noninvasive LED photofacials revitalizes weary features for a more youthful look.
Utopia Bodyworks' team of five licensed massage therapists has a range of specialties, including fine-tuning meridians through reflexology treatments and treating achy limbs with deep-tissue massages. Utopia's beautician, administers facials and microdermabrasions that unearth natural skin tones and correct inverted dimples. Makeup, waxing services, and eyelash extensions round out the center's services, emphasizing the finer touches of cosmetic beauty.
Phyllynna Hurtubise?s nimble hands first got their training at the age of 16, when she suffered from constant headaches after a car accident. Phyllynna taught herself to alleviate her pain through self-massage, eventually honing this skill by practicing on her friends. Years later, a layoff gave her the opportunity to attend massage school, where she fell in love with healing people through the power of her touch.
While she enjoys relieving clients? stress, Phyllynna says her real passion is pain relief, since she knows what it feels like to have constant discomfort. To this end, she strives to eliminate pain at its source rather than masking it with medication. Within a private chamber furnished with earth tones and natural textiles, she works her clients' muscular structures, urging them to release stress and painful memories of jazzercise routines. A hot towel keeps feet warm and Lotus Touch lotions sweeten each stroke as she melds together techniques from varied modalities, depending on her client?s individual needs. Ever conscious of her clients' comfort, Phyllynna walks first-timers through the appointment before she begins and gives each guest a bottle of water afterward to help flush out toxins and extinguish any aromatherapy-candle contraband.
