The Main Attraction salon seeks to pamper clients and help them heal, offering hair, skin, and nail services along with hypnosis and reflexology treatments. Here, licensed aesthetician Lidia Kondovski carefully places individual eyelash extensions on existing lashes to give clients long, bat-worthy looks that are waterproof and remain in place for several weeks. Customers can also get rejuvenating hair color from a licensed stylist or have fingers and toes tended to with mani-pedis in the vibrantly colored studio. There's also an onsite boutique selling jewelry and clothing to complete new looks.
Recessed lights linger overhead like stars, illuminating the salon's dark hardwood floors and sleek black furniture. Amid these warm accents, skilled stylists use keratin straightening treatments to reduce frizz and decorate strands with high-end L’anza and Goldwell products. Guests also may request an elegant perm, or nix unwanted hair from eyebrow outskirts with a swift specialty wax.
Silver Essence Floating Spa's experts in buoyancy help visitors drift away from mental and bodily stresses with two soothing treatments–flotation-therapy and infrared-sauna sessions. During flotation-therapy visits, patrons enter enclosed sensory-deprivation spas to recline or doggy paddle in slow motion in 10 inches of 94-degree water, bolstered by 1,000 pounds of dissolved Epsom salt to facilitate even floating. Each session results in an experience unique to the individual, ranging from mind and body relaxation to daydreaming, and can help treat conditions related to back pain, arthritis, and injury. The units are equipped with inside lights, which may be turned off or left on so guests can crochet yarn swim caps while they soak. Though salt effectively cleanses water on its own, the spa staff also employs doses of ultraviolet light and ozone to ensure water is free of bacteria. A cartridge filter system aids in creating squeaky-clean environments, sifting out tub contents 24 hours a day.
In addition to the flotation therapy, Silver Essence Floating Spa also facilitates detoxification with its infrared sauna, which can burn up to 600 calories each session. The infrared heat energy can also help relieve pain associated with fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Green Spa's staff puts equal emphasis on traditional Western spa treatments and more alternative, holistic services that blend energy work with massage. The spa services include six massage modalities including shiatsu, Swedish, and Thai massage styles. Other body treatments employ herbal mud and organic sugar scrubs to tone, detoxify, and candy skin. Registered nurse Joei Marie Lucey helms the holistic branch of services, using medical know-how alongside her belief that "the body can heal itself," she says. In addition to energy therapies and nutritional counseling, the nurse can recommend organic beauty products and organic Vemma supplements to clients for what she calls "beauty from the inside."
