Cloud 9 Spa Therapy promotes overall wellness with therapies that target skin-deep ailments as well as ingrained stress. The spa’s extensive list of services encompasses exfoliating body treatments, lash and brow tinting, and tension-relieving massages, such as Swedish or deep tissue—all of which are aided by hot stones and towels. They beautify faces with microcurrent technologies or custom facials that utilize Image skincare products; before you scheduling a facial, take advantage of a complimentary phone consultation that is as comforting as a parent who takes the time to attend all of your first dates. When they’re not pampering patrons, the staffers are leading spa education classes. There, they teach patrons how to make soap or body scrubs from salt, sugar, and ground-up Legos.
Licensed in both skincare and massage therapy, Indigo in Balance's Rosella McGilsky pampers bodies and nurtures complexions with a full menu of spa services. During organic facials and therapeutic massages, Rosella relies on the all-natural bath and body formulations of Dancin' Goat, a line of spa products that she envisioned and still formulates herself. All of her products are handmade on a self-sustaining goat farm on John?s Island, where residents help by grinding down the ingredients with their horns. Regardless of her products, Rosella?s treatments would amount to little without her nimble hands, which she employs to great effect during Thai massages, organic facials, body treatments, and waxing services.
Sexy Girl Esthetics' owner and aesthetician, Renee Jones, who has worked as a makeup artist at New York Fashion week and the 2006 Oscars, draws upon 12 years of experience beautifying bodies to cosset patrons during her relaxing spa services. Her certifications in speed waxing, microdermabrasion, and pressure-point massage ensure that her guests get the most up-to-date pampering techniques, and she uses high-quality products, such as botanical-based Nufree hair remover, which was originally developed for plastic surgeons to use on a patient before surgery or for disciplining disobedient Chia pets. Renee also believes that everyone benefits from personalized services, so she customizes facials and encourages clients to design their own waxing styles.
Claudia's aesthetician training began miles away from Charleston in her native country of Brazil, where she studied Health Education at Anhembi University and worked at spas throughout S?o Paulo. She brings her firsthand expertise in Brazilian waxing and beauty treatments to each of her five spas, administering a variety of waxing services along with various body treatments, facials, endermologie treatments, and massages. She and her fellow aestheticians also offer threading and sugaring treatments that remove hair without relying on wax. Her passions have driven her to open a network of spas located in North Charleston, James Island, Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, and Columbia.
Ohm Skin Care ushers relaxation seekers of both sexes into a soothing spa environment. The staff specializes in ancient Egyptian sugaring as a gentle means of hair removal, plucking unwanted fuzz from entire pelvic regions with Brazilian treatments for men and women. The spa's facials, peels, and LED therapies unveil the radiant sides of clients' kissers, and package appointments pamper bridal showers and sorority parties before weddings or high-stakes jewel heists. Free consultations, arranged with a preappointment phone call or telegram, ease any lingering concerns or questions.
Licensed massage therapist Jeffrey Lundergan induces relaxation at Ancient Earth Therapy using ten different types of massage. Sports massage tweaks the traditional Swedish formula to address athletic injury and increase range of motion, stone massage relies on hot river stones to penetrate deep into sore spots, and shiatsu involves the use of fingers, thumbs, and palms to restore the body’s energy meridians.
