Indulgence is the status quo at Polish’d Nails, where staffers offer spa treatments that are as relaxing as they are physically rewarding. They offer pedicures with hot stones, cooling masks, antioxidant-rich green-tea soaks, and circulation-stimulating peppermint moisturizing masks, often accompanied by soothing massages. The staffers' manicures aid clients in unwinding with the addition of walnut-and-raspberry scrubs and hot-towel wraps.
Beginning her career in Budapest, Erika Tolnai studied chemistry and anatomy, but she didn't aspire to be a mad scientist—her fascination was instead with beauty. After a move to the United States and further extensive training, she opened Ika's European Spa as a body care oasis. She now tends to her clients' hair, skin, and nails with an emphasis on customized treatments, which enable her to address conditions from acne to 'dos in need of color correction.
For all of her haircuts and color services, Ika uses Redken and gluten-free Baco products. She tends to skin issues with a skincare menu that takes advantage of organic Image Skincare serums as well as microdermabrasion tools and ultrasound waves that produce anti-aging effects. If that's not enough, she also waxes away unwanted hair and polishes nails, warming hands with add-ons such as paraffin wax or a two-hour handshake.
At Massage Rose Therapeutic Center, therapists are selected for the pain relief they provide with their hands. This lends to the center's extra-long list of specialties, which includes Shiatsu, Swedish, deep tissue, sports, and trigger-point therapy. Massage Rose also has a VIP program, which offers discounted sessions for clients who come at least once a month.
The trained stylists and aestheticians at this Aveda concept salon bombast pamper-seeking extremities with a veritable tour de force of revitalizing spa services. Your spa package kicks off with an Aveda Damage Remedy renewal treatment, which includes a style and blow-dry, designed to restore lock luster and liveliness. A relaxing oil massage infuses your scalp with moisture while a warm towel locks in the dewy glow. Newly strengthened hair will provide a soft surface so shiny it shimmers like the surface of a lake in moonlight, but without skinny-dipping lovebirds constantly frolicking in it. Amid your hair makeover, your cranium casing and arm fulcrums benefit from massages.
