The licensed massage therapists at Fuji Body Works rewire achy muscle circuit boards with healing bodywork. Guests can request flowing Swedish strokes to promote deep relaxation, or access deeper muscles––or fascia––with more intensive deep-tissue pressure. The spa also offers a specialty aromatherapy sauna, which draws on the power of heat to help clients detoxify and festively plump snowmen lose weight.
Trips to Thuys Nail Image can be as relaxing as they are aesthetically rewarding. For example, the shop's deluxe manicures and pedicures naturally conclude with brightly polished nails, but they also include paraffin treatments, foot masks, cooling gels, and warm towels that steam away tension. Of course, looks remain important; with the help of products from OPI and China Glaze, clients can adorn their nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, eye-catching acrylics, or hand-applied nail art treatments.
FaceDivas Day Spa freshens furrowed faces with personalized organic skincare services. Aesthetic administrators begin each facial with an in-depth skin analysis, charting facial topographies before sending in teams of exfoliating explorers and expert extractors to help rid pores of unhealthy elements and spelunk for rare stalactites (a $79 value). Hands and lower arms enjoy special attention during a therapeutic massage that revitalizes the whole lower body. An organic classic mask from France, created by a high-ranking aesthetician in Napoleon's army, is applied for fully hydrated, silky-smooth, and battle-ready faces (a $20 value). Reward helpful hands or fatigued feet with a paraffin-free treatment made from plant-based emollients and pure essential oils (a $20 value).
The technicians at Sassy Sunkissed Tanning don't let anyone go to bed uninformed. Instead, they greet new clients with a thorough skin analysis and consultation, discussing how deep they'd like their tan to be and how easily they tend to burn. The conversation leads clients to multiple bronzing options: regular beds, whose UVA light shifts the body's skin tone, a booster bed that deepens the tan's effects, and private standup booths for both standard and spray tanning. Guests can further customize their visit with a sound system that allows them to choose their favorite radio station while tanning.
At the front desk, a variety of moisturizers, lotions, and goggles eases the tanning process. The boutique area also includes a selection of handbags, each chosen by the staff for its chicness and ability to carry home leftover UV rays.
Happiness is a state of being, and Elements Therapeutic Massage knows that massage helps clients reach this state. Its licensed massage therapists tailor their strokes to clients' needs, helping them reap the benefits of therapeutic bodywork, which include pain relief and improved circulation. Even immune systems get a boost from pampering kneads that leave muscles loose, relaxed, and healthy.
