The team of relaxation gurus at InsideOut Wellness includes two trained massage therapists and a reiki master who focus on rejuvenating bodies with affordable massages, reiki treatments, footbaths, and nutritional guidance. Amid candlelight and contemporary decor, massages are doled out in 30-, 60-, and 90-minute increments as therapists unkink spines and deknot muscles in a variety of massage modalities customized to meet clients' needs and preferences. Each muscle-melting session includes complimentary hot stones, and guests can opt to push their treatments past the borders of Pamperville with luxurious add-ons including paraffin treatments or aromatherapy scalp massage. A collection of old-fashioned bronze basins awaits tired feet with hot water and a soothing foot-soak mixture in preparation for an indulgent treatment further complemented by a pot of herbal tea and sugar-scrub treatment. While massage therapists focus on revitalizing exteriors, InsideOut's resident reiki master turns her attention to the body's interior as she revives waning energy levels with holistic reiki sessions for humans and their animal companions.
When aesthetician Talita Pinto and her team look at a shelf of skincare products, they know just which one to use. At Cynthia's Salon and Day Spa, they apply this know-how to help clients look and feel beautiful. When clients want to repair sun damage, they reach for vitamin C. When they want relief from acne, they call upon fruit acids and natural enzymes. Sometimes they employ advanced technology, such as microdermabrasion, to deliver more dramatic results. Like other top estheticians and those who really really want to learn how to unscramble a Rubik's Cube, Talita and her team sharpen their skills by pursuing specialized education.
No matter how much tension they work out of muscles, how many updos they sculpt, or how many times clients request they make lightsaber sounds during laser hair removal, the staff at The Galleria Day Spa keeps learning about the latest beauty and health trends. This devotion to continuing education informs each service, from bikini waxes to gel manicures. Skin treatments, such as facials and peels, rely on formulas from Dermalogica and GlyMed Plus, and the staff reaches for similarly high-end products from Paul Mitchell and Moroccanoil during salon services.
The Club-Fitness, Health & Spa keeps workout routines fresh with three floors brimming with the industry’s latest in equipment and programs. Since the mid-1990s, the adult-oriented facility has strived to set itself apart from big-box gyms with pool, whirlpool, sauna, and steam room facilites—and by taking an intelligent, honest approach to fitness, personified by its friendly staff. Headlining the club's offerings is a full schedule of group classes, including kickboxing and yoga. Additionally, the club’s trainers lead private and group training sessions.
The nationally certified massage therapists of massage ME & bodyworks want to create a place where their clients can escape from the daily grind through massages, facial therapy, and holistic treatments. The therapists are each skilled in multiple modalities (including deep-tissue, hot-stone, and prenatal massage) so they can better personalize each service. They also carry a line of dye-free soy jojoba oil candles that melt into massage oil, which they then use to knead sore muscles or oil squeaky doors. Coupled with facial acupressure, the products used during facial therapy stimulate collagen growth and help encourage lymphatic drainage to smooth out fine lines. Though their entire service menu seeks to bring bodies into balance, specialized holistic treatments, such as reiki and ionic footbaths, address bodily toxins and health concerns more directly.
In addition to welcoming clients into the office, the staff can set up onsite service for offices, spa parties, and tug-of-war tournaments, complete with massage chairs and tables.
