The aromas of coffee, cupcakes, chocolate, and cherries waft through the air inside Spalicious, where aestheticians pamper faces and bodies with custom, flavored skin treatments. Each rich, creamy body polish is forged from natural ingredients, such as the piña colada's fresh coconut cream or the cinnamon-apple pie's enzyme-packed apple purée. The scented salves work to soften, hydrate, and exfoliate skin as staffers brush them onto clients' bodies with the same care Leonardo da Vinci took when adorning the original Blue Man Group. The staff members extend their pampering finesse to the rest of the body, swathing hands and feet in similarly flavored solutions and further gussying up skin with herbal body wraps and henna tattoos. They also bolster beautified façades with organic, custom spray tanning and onsite fitness classes such as Zumba, yoga, and belly dancing.
The team of therapists at Tiny Apples Massage Therapy soothes tense muscles with modalities such as Swedish, pregnancy, sports, and therapeutic massage. These techniques can ease injured muscles, improve range of motion, and call lazy blood cells to action. During hot-stone massages, massage therapists use smooth stones to loosen curmudgeonly knots. They also use a Japanese technique known as reiki, which targets the body's life force energy through the laying on of hands. They can also enhance these bodywork techniques with aromatherapy and detoxifying foot soaks. The former adds invigorating scents to the session, and the latter expels impurities by putting each sullied foot through a trial by ordeal.
At 360 Health Advantage, a team of licensed practitioners work with clients to relieve discomfort, slim down fat deposits, and lift stress from troubled minds.

High-tech Lipo Light treatments help to dissolve fat cells without the need for surgery, while slimming body wraps shrink stubborn bulges.

At Fitness 1st, certified personal trainers inspire clients to make exercise a priority during fun, confidence-building workouts. Though the studio spans 6,500 square feet, personalized attention from the staff makes it feel as cozy as a fireplace clad in long underwear. Here, exercisers chase down their goals during one-on-one training sessions and tackle them with a group during boot-camp-style workouts and core-sculpting Pilates-yoga routines. To promote mind-body wellness and ease muscle soreness, clients can sample up to four types of massage therapy in a secluded kneading area. Swedish massages target stress with long, flowing strokes, and sports massages can enhance performance during athletic events and the breakdancing portion of Shakespearean plays.
Ever since graduating from the massage therapy program at the Minnesota School of Business, Sherri Anderson has used her kneading know-how to relax countless achy muscles. Versed in myriad modalities, including Swedish, sports, and hot-stone massage, the certified massage therapist incorporates whatever techniques best treat each client's needs. Besides decreasing soreness, her massages help lower blood pressure, increase posture, and improve range of motion more effectively than transplanting your brain into Stretch Armstrong. Sherri works as part of The Circle of Healing Arts Co-op, a wellness cooperative whose other services run the gamut from life coaching to reiki.
