To get an idea of the kinds of services offered at Carrollton Square Salon & Spa, you need only look up. In one of the treatment rooms, a tent hovers over the massage bed, ready to catch clouds of toxin-dispersing steam. In another room, the ceiling’s wooden bars allow trained ashiatsu practitioners to buoy and balance themselves while massaging clients' backs with their feet. The only thing you'll find on the ceiling of the relaxation room is soft, recessed lighting and the trapped cartoon-bubble sighs of stress relief left behind by previous guests.
The salon and spa harnesses the historic charm of downtown Carrollton and is filled with friendly, down-to-earth staffers. This combination won over readers of the Carrollton Leader, who voted it the Best Spa and Best Massage in 2012.
Radiant Skin Care Spa lives up to its name, brightening complexions with spa services powered by Dermalogica, Glytone, and Bare Minerals products. Aestheticians enhance the smoothing power of facials by whisking away dead skin cells with crystal microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels. They also nix errant fuzz with hair removal treatments that use warm wax, electrolysis, or IPL lasers with built-in cooling devices. Aromatherapy and hot stone massages slowly release tension in the back and limbs, leaving clients relaxed and stress-free. Nails aren’t neglected, either; technicians coat digits with colorful CND shellacs that can withstand cracks caused by car door handles and house keys set to "attack mode".
At The Barefoot Lounge Foot Spa, guests can enjoy the therapeutic and restorative benefits of massage without ever having to remove their coat. During the lounge’s signature foot- and hand-focused services, guests relax in plush white leather recliners as specialists administer reflexology and acupressure techniques designed to activate the body’s natural healing process. All treatments start with a warm foot soak designed to quickly send guests into a state of relaxation or loosen ligaments strained from years of wearing chainmail socks.
Pain and tension can take many forms within the human body.

Intrinsic Touch and Bodyworks can also turn its treatments into completely indulgent experiences by adding a rejuvenating body scrub or a quick game of Candy Land.
When the therapists at Deluxe Feet glide their hands over clients? feet, each touch is intentional.

Deluxe Feet also offers an oxygen bar that infuses guests with the element to help improve concentration and energy levels, enhance x-ray vision, and reduce stress.
