The founders of Fahrenheit Yoga Studio know that heat is a powerful agent of change. Here, layers of stress and self-doubt melt away as students stretch and balance in temperatures of 100 degrees or higher. Instead of warming the air with the fumes of a docile dragon, the studio uses far-infrared rays to heat the body directly. In addition to deepening stretches, the torrid temperature helps students to sweat out toxins. An air-exchange system refreshes the room with fresh oxygen, which is pumped through the body during yoga exercises to promote health and vitality. To help to prevent injuries, eco-friendly cork floors cushion joints during carefully crafted pose sequences that are taught by certified instructors with a focus on proper alignment. Suitable for yogis of all levels, the routines can boost flexibility and make the mind sharper than a nettle wearing a diamond tiara.
A board-certified nurse, a laser technician, an aesthetician, and a cosmetic-injectable expert comprise the med spa team at Rejuvenation Group that helps clients reach their beauty goals. Blue-light therapy, peels, and microdermabrasion resurface complexions, while skin-clarifying experts strive to permanently banish tattoos, hair, and tattoos of nose hair with laser treatments.
In addition to aesthetic treatments, Rejuvenation Group also offers purely medical therapies. Melan Smith-Francis, a certified nurse-midwife and family nurse practitioner who is currently earning her doctorate, provides services including hormone therapy, family planning, and basic exams.
In 2008, board-certified hair-color specialist Adela Franco used her international training and beauty pageant experience to open her very own hair studio. In 2010, Franco added aestheticians, massage therapists, and nail technicians to her team, turning the studio into a full-service salon and spa. Since then, clients have been visiting Adela's Color Salon & Spa for an assortment of services—ranging from foil highlights to deep-tissue massages—done with products by brands including OPI, Image Skincare, and L'Oréal Professionnel. Before each service, guests may wet their whistles with a complimentary glass of wine, a cup of freshly brewed coffee, or a diamond-encrusted chalice filled with exotic tea.
At CG Salon, an acclaimed cadre of licensed aestheticians dispenses a full array of beautifying and tranquilizing services. The calming and revitalizing herbal embalming treatment exfoliates skin to a softness that rivals the underbelly of a wild snuffleupagus. During the paraffin facial, spa techs assail pallid complexions with a mix that is engineered to clarify muddled pigments and reverse indelible scowls. The resulting gorgeousness is further accentuated during the complimentary make-up application.
The friendly and professional staff at Elysium Day Spa soothes nerves and spiffs up skin using high-quality products and a relaxing atmosphere completely free of rush-hour traffic and mostly free of screeching seagulls. Clients get to choose from a wide range of facials that soften skull-sheaths and get them glowing like a flattered firefly on its honeymoon. Opt for a 45-minute Liftosome facial, a self-heating mask brimming with vitamin C, or cleanse the balrog-riddled depths of your pores with a 55- to 60-minute European facial. If your nose throws a tantrum for being left out of the fun, indulge it with a 55- to 60-minute aromatic facial featuring a moisture-sealing seaweed mask. Additionally, customers will enjoy the after-option of a Bare Escentuals makeup application that uses minerals to glamorize faces so that they can silence unruly movie crowds with a single sexy glance.
At Salon C/K of Cool Springs an experienced and ethnically diverse staff pampers clients of all ages with hair and skin services. Pulling from Redken, Mizani, and Design Essentials product lines, they update ‘dos with stylish cuts and color treatments. Aestheticians keep skin smooth with waxing treatments and facials, or deliver an instant sun-kissed glow with spray tans.
