The highly trained staff at Solaris Spa utilizes advanced technology and high-quality products to beautify bodies in a tranquil setting. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the sound of a trickling granite waterfall, a peaceful melody designed to calm the senses and call to mind pleasant memories of a secret crush on a former plumber. Guests slip into oversized robes and cozy slippers before relaxing with a massage in a candlelit treatment room, or head to the far-infrared sauna to incite fat burn and purge the body of toxins. Aestheticians brighten men's and women's complexions during anti-aging facials, using products from the Priori line; mani-pedis are enhanced with fragrant sea salt and peppermint. The spa also specializes in laser hair-removal and skin-correction treatments, which begin with a free consultation with a certified laser technician and often end with speedier trips down playground slides.
The trained technicians and professional aestheticians at York Laser Centre specialize in making their clients' skin look its best. With the aid of the skin-enhancing machines, vascular lesions, acne, sun damage, age spots, and excessive redness can fade from bodily surfaces. The spa's treatments also include laser hair removal and microdermabrasion treatments, which rejuvenate and tighten skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and sending bodily hair back to the Play-Doh Spaghetti Factory from whence it came.
Spa Pure's talented staff pampers, soothes, and revivifies patron pelts through an array of luxurious spa services. In a 30-minute massage, nurturing hands tend to tense knots and tight muscles in backs, necks, and shoulders weary from stress, hard work, and bench-pressing pianos (a $29 value). Aestheticians cater each half-hour, customized relaxation facial to customers' wishes, affinity for pickles, and skin type (a $55 value). Determining the products and methods best suited to the face before them, these epidermis experts cleanse pores of accumulated grit and apply toner to firm and tighten. After a round of exfoliation and extraction of blackheads, faces receive a soothing massage and a noncommittal face mask. The process ends with the application of eye cream and a pore-slaking moisturizer.
The practitioners at Ojus Healthcare all hail from India, where they each earned bachelors' of ayurvedic medicine and surgery (BAMS) degrees. Ayurveda's holistic therapies date back more than 5,000 years and are drawn from ancient Indian holy texts, or Vedas.
Using diagnostic techniques developed long before blood tests or x-ray glasses, the specialists at Ojus examine their patients' eyes, tongue, skin, and pulse to determine their overall constitution during an initial consultation. If toxins seem to be weighing a person down, a five-part panchakarma detox may be recommended. This regimen includes internal and external cleansing by way of warm oil massaged into the skin, ingested, dripped up the nose, and applied over the eyes. A steam box draws impurities out through the sweat glands and soft dough is used to form oil reservoirs on especially troubled areas.
