Look and Feel Good Salon and Spa—a full-service day spa—lives up to its name with relaxing nail, massage, and skincare services that rejuvenate bodies and minds. Nail techs keep hands and feet chip-free for up to two weeks with CND Shellac, or hydrate digits with nourishing almond oil during traditional mani-pedis. More than 10 massage modalities call on hot towels and stones to help loosen tight muscles, as essential oils infused with the scent of cedarwood, wild thyme, or eucalyptus instill a sense of calm. The staff also dolls up faces with permanent-makeup applications and uses wax to subtract unwanted hairs and solve tricky arithmetic tattoos.
Licensed aestheticians Lynda Young and Monique Mannino split their time between administering spa treatments at Rock Creek Medi Spa and educating students at its adjoining Esthetics Institute. The aestheticians helm a staff of technicians and valedictorian lasers who restore balance and radiance to skin. In addition to addressing epidermal concerns, staff members use non-invasive treatments to contour curves, reduce fine lines, and zap away unwanted hair. They also offer full-body fitness with vibration platform machines that help build muscle as you burn calories.
When diet and exercise prove no match for out-of-control curves, Dr. Greg Denzel and his staff want you to know you still have options. Across two locations, including the pristine and cottage-like Windsor office and a Lafayette office, the staff streamlines silhouettes with varying degrees of invasiveness, from hormone-replacement therapy to SmartLipo to SuperSculpt. They also beautify mugs with dermal fillers, and usher in relaxation with massage therapy and the whooshing sound of knotted kinks fleeing the scene.
The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center’s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body’s energy.
Skin issues come to Therapy World to say their goodbyes. Under the care of Dr. Terry Grossman, the medspa's staff of medical aestheticians provides effective healing and anti-aging therapies to help skin look its best—and to help clients feel their best. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the team starts each new patient relationship with individualized care. That begins with a consultation during which skin issues and current skincare regimens are examined. Then, based on the patient's goals, corrective skin procedures are recommended, such as facial peels or microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning, threading, and reiki also comprise the long list of helpful treatments the center is known for, each contributing their own benefits to overall patient well being.
The loyal staffers at Finishing Touch Spa & Salon?many of whom have been at the salon-spa since its inception 30 years ago?beautify bodies in a soothing, tropical-theme atmosphere. On the salon floor, a consultation kicks off hair appointments before nationally certified Redken stylists shampoo strands, lop off locks, and then style them with a blow dryer or a ride in a convertible. In the spa's private treatment rooms, Finishing Touch?s Caribbean flair helps guests to leave the concrete world outside and escape to an oasis of soothing hues and tropical-island wall hangings as they prep for anti-aging facial treatments, mud wraps, body waxing, or massage-therapy services. Before treatments, guests are encouraged to sip complimentary beverages while guessing which of the spa?s ubiquitous plants have recently been shampooed.
