The technicians at BodyTrends Day Spa refer to their offerings as "redesigns" rather than "procedures." That distinction is important?rather than recommending surgery, the beauty haven champions noninvasive methods to give clients the faces and bodies they wish for. Electrical muscle stimulation promotes firmer physiques without requiring recipients to spend hours at the gym or weekends moving heavy boxes up and down stairs. Similar slimming results may be found after laser treatments, which work to reduce fat and tighten skin. Should guests wish to turn back their faces' clock, the specialists can provide injectable fillers, exfoliating microdermabrasions, and classic facials.
Sunsations Tanning Salon, which has catered to beauty-pageant contestants such as Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, gilds limbs with three levels of tanning beds and airbrush tanning. Clients recline in a traditional or wide-body bronzing bed or stay vertical in a standup bed while inside a large private room.
In addition to tanning, Sunsations offers facials and massages by its aesthetician, Shea. During signature facials, Shea deeply cleanses pores to remove built-up dirt and grime and any glitter left over from New Year’s Eve. She also kneads bodies with custom massage techniques, releasing toxins and turning muscles into butter.
After becoming licensed, massage therapist Cliff Rackley found himself tending to the overworked limbs and game-time nerves of the University of Arkansas' men's basketball team. Calling on the know-how he gained treating college athletes, he opened his own business in order to lavish the same accuracy and attention on a range of clients. As these clients kick back on his massage table, he assuages their muscles with a retinue of techniques that includes Swedish, sports, and hot-stone massages, each of which he can also perform in the location of the clients' choice to ease tension at home or soften stiffening during staring contests with Medusa.
Within her corner of the Sculptures Salon and Day Spa, Terisa Ellsworth strives to address each client's aesthetic goals while imbuing their complexions with a deep, even tan. She customizes every airbrush tan, precisely defining the contours of her clients' physiques with a hand-held applicator. Terisa’s airbrush method ensures a long-lasting, streak-free, and natural-looking tan without exposing clients to dangerous UVA and UVB rays or new, non-FDA-approved technologies such as going outdoors.
Stonebrook Day Spa caters to pampering needs with a soothing selection of massages, manicures, and facials. The unique Valentine's Day facial begins with a deep cleaning, exfoliating, and toning ($55). The aesthetician's nimble fingers also attend to the delicate skin around the eyes ($10). Then, a skin specialist applies a mask made with chocolate, a blend of antioxidants, and the Colonel's spices (a $2 add-on). As the mask primps pores, staffers administer a soothing massage of the arms, scalp, neck, and shoulders. Hands and feet also receive reflexology treatment ($18), and then the facial-focused experience concludes with a soothing application of the Stonebrook Day Spa’s own blend of seasonally fragrant lotions.
At Integrity Therapeutic Massage, dedicated wellness curators call on extensive training and therapeutic modalities to eliminate pain, tension, and a range of naturally pent-up toxins. Through individual consultations, resident therapists Sara and Laura become acquainted with clients to inform their decision on the best massage modality. Swedish-massage clients submit tense bodies to a series of kneading, rolling, tapping, and vibration techniques designed to stimulate circulation and enhance natural healing when coupled with one of many essential oils. Deep-tissue techniques counteract chronic muscular pain with firm pressure applied to sublayer musculature. For a more mind-melting massage, the warm-stone experience instills clients with a serene feeling previously known only to iguanas planking peacefully on sun-swept boulders.
