Austin Tranquility’s dedicated people pamperers ease aches with relaxing Swedish massages and reinvigorate mugs with soothing dark-chocolate facials and sugar scrubs. Each 60- or 90-minute massage uses light or medium pressure to loosen knots and alleviate stress. The smooth, gliding strokes ease muscle tension and promote relaxation, easing overworked physique fibers and melting tension into a conveniently positioned bucket. An effective treatment for stress reduction and the improvement of blood circulation, Swedish massage can also relieve anxiety and depression. Afterwards, spa seekers can lie back as one of Austin Tranquility’s professional spa technicians applies an antioxidant-imbued dark-chocolate facial mask and finishes things off with an invigorating and exfoliating sugar scrub. Naturally pure and rich in iron, vitamins, and esprit de corps, the dark-chocolate compounds fight the free radicals that bring on the signs of aging, helping to erase fine lines and leaving skin feeling hydrated and refreshed.
Before the therapists apply any bodywork, Myo Fit Massage's studio begins unburdening clients of stress through a relaxing design of stone accents, warm greens, and chocolaty browns. As guests sink into the massage table, therapists draw upon multiple modalities—including deep-tissue, sports, and trigger-point massage—to encourage overall relaxation, correct postural dysfunctions or relieve tension embedded in both the superficial and deep-muscle layers. They may also accentuate their work by leading clients through active and passive stretching. In addition to easing aches, massage benefits may range from lessened anxiety to improved quality of sleep. Beyond bodywork, Myo Fit's team also offers far-infrared-sauna sessions with Chi-Machine therapy to help visitors expunge toxins such as lactic acid and Legos eaten during childhood.

The technicians and physicians at Simplicity Laser Hair Removal work to evict wily follicle lodgers of all colors with advanced hair-razing equipment that combines FDA-approved diode, Nd:Yag, and alexandrite lasers. Customers can gently pulverize strands in one body area with six or eight treatments of concentrated pulsed photons, which coax squatting body threads out of their skin shelters with laser wavelengths and candy. Alternatively, opt for a full year of treatments to tackle multiple areas across unlimited visits. Simplicity Laser Hair Removal's triad of modern laser technologies promises safe and effective treatment during each session of 30 minutes or less. Although these treatments can be effective in permanently reducing unwanted fuzz, most patients require 8–12 sessions for full reduction due to hair-growth dormancy, laser-absorption rates, and hard-to-locate follicle foxholes.
Scott Sachnoff's passion for hair color began 20 years ago in Santa Barbara, California, where he began his career by assisting a head colorist for Schwarzkopf. It took a move to New York City to fully catapult him into the high-fashion world of hairstyling, however, and a stint spent training with Redken soon found him ascending to assume the title of Master Hair Colorist. While his time in the Big Apple earned him a loyal customer base, Scott soon caught the traveling bug again, relocating this time to Texas to establish his own salon and a reputation among the state's politicians, professionals, and celebrity line dancers. Today, he credits Austin's vibrant streets and nightlife with inspiring his signature cut and color treatments, which he creates using low-ammonia formulas by Italian color line Framesi.
VIP Spa's treatments are all customizable, and none more so than its massages. Tailored to the client's aches and pains, the kneads come in a choice of three styles?gentle relaxation, deep tissue, and hot stone?and each can be further enhanced with an array of add-ons. Clients can opt for a scalp massage to temper tension above the neck, for instance, or a hand-and-foot scrub to free extremities from scaly skin or rust.
The spa team isn't just concerned with muscles, though. They also tend to visages, with facials geared towards brightening, calming, or firming complexions. And, patrons can even enhance their style in the on-site boutique, which is home to a colorful collection of purses and jewelry sets.
