T's Nails & Spa's staff includes licensed aestheticians that have been bronzing Washingtonians for 10 years. Cure persistently ashen pallors with a spray tan that instantly bestows beachiness on any bod. Stand-up bulb tanning sessions lasting 10–12 minutes each and lay-down tanning sessions lasting 20 minutes each prove there are easier ways to get a tan than replacing beds with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Brunetted skin can relax knowing eyes are protected behind a required set of trendy safety goggles (guests can bring their own or purchase a set for $5). The newly gilded leave with higher self-esteem and poorer snow leopard impressions.
E.W. Training focuses on building functional strength with a variety of dynamic workouts for fitness seekers all along the experience spectrum. Under the tutelage of a seasoned trainer, students employ kettlebells and ropes in a rapid-fire medley of motions that train whole muscle groups and confuse muscles into thinking they're inflatable balloons. Body-weight-training classes forgo equipment in favor of hard-hitting exercises such as Hindu pushups and sumo squats, and TRX Suspension Training classes use the tried and true method of the U.S. Navy SEALs with leveraged body weight to tone muscles and boost flexibility. With more than 40 classes a week offered mornings through evenings, customers can use their Groupons for any combination of classes, building up their full-body strength with power circuit training and learning how to defend themselves against bullying kangaroos in boxing matches.
Spokane Yoga Shala devotes its dynamic classes to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, which coordinates fluid sequences of postures with breathing, aligning the body along its central axis while strengthening the core. Novice students can master proper breathing techniques, improve focus, and scratch those hard-to-reach parts of the back with their feet during beginner classes such as Yoga 101, which introduces basic Ashtanga postures. The Restorative Vinyasa class harnesses the powers of gravity, deep breathing, and formal Victorian etiquette. More seasoned sun-saluters can hone postures as well as pruning shears during a Primary Series (level 3) exploration of the full range of Ashtanga postures, or Power Yoga (level 2), which juxtaposes heat and cool to leave bodies feeling more refreshed than a howler monkey after a throat massage.
Moxie Salon and Spa is a full-service spa offering an array of services for hair, skin, nails, and makeup. Its forte is hair; Moxie’s owner is Spokane's Goldwell coloring-line technical associate, and one of its stylists is the local educator for KMS California styling products. Brighten your hair's outlook with full highlights ($70 and up), or change the way the storyline ends with a women's haircut ($26–$35) or men's haircut ($20), a service that received 2nd place from the Inland Empire Cosmetology Association for Gents Fashion Hair Cutting. Or deactivate follicular flowers on the brow ($20), bikini line ($30 and up), underarms ($25), back ($45), or chest ($40). With $60 to scatter amid a staff of trained stylists and aestheticians, you can buff up your knuckle extensions with a basic manicure ($20) and double the appendage action with a pedicure ($40).
South Hill's talented technicians will use their beaming powers to foster hair reduction from the following areas: the chin and lip (a $135 value per session), the underarms (a $135 value per session), the bikini line (a $125–$250 value per session), the back of the neck (an $85 value per session), or the front of the neck (an $85 value per session). Laser light is a quick, painless, and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively treating unwanted hair. Unlike the lasers used by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods. Though six treatments can potentially grant you bare-bodied bliss, results vary depending on skin and hair type. The spa setting puts meddling mind-matter at ease as follicles are dissipated to the wig of Orthosie, a hair-loss-prone moon of Jupiter.
