Like a trail of breadcrumbs in a dense forest, organic spa treatments guide guests to beauty and graceful, healthy aging at Vita Revive's European-inspired retreat. An expert team, including clinical aestheticians, a certified nutritional consultant, and a master reiki practitioner, reflects Vita Revive’s hybrid identity as both a wellness center and a spa. Together, these professionals blend Eastern and Western approaches, soothing stress with the ancient kneading of massage and targeted pressure of reflexology while fighting fine lines and wrinkles with modern facial treatments that rely on glycolic acid, pressurized oxygen, and microcurrents. Advanced technology fuels the spa’s infrared sauna and infrared body wraps, whereas old-fashioned water works its timeless wonders during a Vichy shower, whose high-pressure jets create a rain massage so that clients don't have to squeeze into their dishwasher for a full cycle.
As its name implies, the spa and wellness center incorporates USDA-approved organic ingredients into its treatments, crafting body wraps with seaweed algae extracts, moor mud, and Mediterranean wine and honey. The space itself also pays homage to the natural world with the earthy beige tones and bamboo flooring that outfit seven private treatment rooms.
Enigma's experienced practitioners lull meddling mind matter into a state of full-body bliss as soothing scents slither into nostrils and muscles succumb to the hearty force of healing hands. A 60-minute deep-tissue massage gets to the root of sinews' struggles, emancipating weary, overworked tendons with long, slow strokes and tactical kneads that snap fingers in the face of tension while evicting overstayed stresses that have been squatting in the melancholy caverns of back muscles. To the accompaniment of ambient live music, guests can bask in Enigma's harmonious environment while sipping on a complimentary herbal tea or cocktail of aromatherapy oils.
No Worries Salon founder Jill Turnbull, who was selected best colorist by Baltimore magazine in 2011, leads a talented team of stylists who work out of the salon's chic, chandelier-bedecked confines. When customers enter the salon, the friendly staff welcomes them into the inviting space, showering them with attention during their visits. On top of basic haircuts, the staff colors, glosses, straightens, and curls strands. After each visit, stylists provide guests with a complete haircare maintenance program to ensure new hairstyles stay fresh, styled correctly, and don't run away before an important business meeting.
Celebrities vouch for the efficacy of Wraptured's unconventional beauty treatments, particularly its flagship service—slenderizing body wraps, provided by Victoria Morton's Suddenly Slender Body Wrap System. On television programs including Ellen and The Tyra Banks Show, hosts have praised the wraps for facilitating weight loss and smoothing out dimples in thighs.
Additional high-tech skincare treatments help the spa abate the aging process. Endermologie and Lift M6 treatments both simulate massage to boost circulation and tighten skin, whereas face taping visibly improves fine lines by smoothing skin with strategically placed pieces of surgical tape.
Apothecary Wellness Spa's service menu may be long and diverse, but every treatment has one thing in common: holistic, eco-friendly products and techniques that calm the mind and reveal beauty naturally. Facials rely on formulas from Naturopathica and Ilike Organic Skincare to purify and revitalize complexions through fully personalized treatments, each of which include soothing massages and a bounty of hot towels. Custom-massage sessions benefit from the addition of individually blended essential oils, and body treatments soften the skin by imparting essences of wholesome fruits, vegetables, and herbs. Even the waxing treatments take a natural approach by using Nufree, a plant-based, hair-removal formula that's naturally antibacterial and free of waxes and sugars, resulting in less skin irritation than the hard waxes or recently-lit birthday candles used by other spas.
