Bordered by a dark hardwood floor and amber walls warmed by low light, the lobby of Bella Pella Medical Spa cultivates a serene feeling even before treatments start. Velvet chaise longues, a small waterfall, and glowing bouquets of light-tipped stems also occupy the room, lulling guests into a tranquil state that continues in the treatment rooms. There, services as varied as hot-stone massages and laser aesthetics help visitors feel and look their best.
Though Mimosa Spa specialists are committed to helping clients look their best, they are equally concerned with ensuring guests feel their best. That's why they supplement their beautifying facials and body wraps with relaxing massages in one of their 12 massage rooms and invite manicure recipients to recline in cushy massage chairs as bubbling whirlpools soak their feet. For waxes and full-body massage treatments, the staff welcomes clients to private rooms with soft, cushioned beds. Empathetic and experienced, they also take pains to address customers' questions and concerns, particularly before sensitive treatments such as permanent-makeup application or Brazilian waxes. The spa's decor unfolds across 4,000 square feet and also helps create a soothing atmosphere. Rustic stone pillars tower over the clean and cool tile floors, clear of clutter and illuminated by the soft glow of hanging lanterns. The warm orange walls are covered with art depicting peaceful scenes, such as a blustery autumn forest or a smooth river stone that's just dozed off to sleep.
Back in 2007, master stylist Ericka Bustamante noticed her town was in need of a new beauty haven, a one-stop shop for men, women, and children in need of beauty services. So Ericka took it upon herself to meet that demand and founded EBS Salon & Spa.
A single red accent wall glows at the back of the salon area where clients recline in black leather chairs and sip complimentary beverages of water and coffee. Surrounded by chic black furnishings and vaulted ceilings, guests are stylistically transformed by keratin treatments, eyelash extensions, GlyMed Plus Skin Care products, and glo minerals cosmetics. Other available treatments include massages and facials. At the newly built salon, clients will find ample parking as well as a kids' play area.
The massage therapists at Spa Heaven have a sensible solution for continually improving their techniques: they practice on each other. By drawing on that expert focus group, the staff has mastered the skills to soothe clients' bodies and minds with a unique blend of more than 15 modalities of Eastern and Western massage. But along with touch, the team also appeals to the other senses, filling rooms with the scents of aromatherapy oils and incense.
Spa Heaven's staff goes above and beyond treating aches with a slew of skin-rejuvenating body wraps. They concoct the compounds in their wraps from organic coffee in the organic green coffee body wrap, tropical fruit in the de-aging tropical fruit body wrap, and the finest mud pies in the aromatic dead sea mud wrap.
After spending 16 years in the field of dentistry, Susanne Novotny felt it was time for a change. She decided to pursue a career in a different type of healing—therapeutic and wellness massage therapy. She is now a licensed massage therapist and the owner of Serendipity Massage & Laser, where she alleviates stress and tension with custom Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massages.
The caring professional also spends one day per week working with a pain-management doctor to facilitate patients' healing. Novotny mixes her own essential-oil blends and creates sea salt and sugar scrubs, crafting all-natural and organic formulas to enhance relaxing massage sessions or re-create scratch-and-sniff memories from childhood.
Jay Robertson loves his job. As a child, he connected with nature and served as the designated family massage therapist. He later entered the military and spent 15 years on the streets as a police officer—but after being injured on the job, he realized it was time to go back to his roots. So he decided to become a licensed massage therapist and holistic healer, channeling his positive synergy with nature to help others.
Jay offers many different types of massage, from deep tissue and prenatal to sports and Swedish, and uses gems and crystals to facilitate energy healing. With a mobile service, relaxing studio, and nutritional counseling available, Holon Massage is a calming place to have chronic stress relieved and feel tight muscles melt.
