Botanica Day Spa's studied aestheticians and licensed massage therapists command a broad selection of relaxing services, such as the infrared-sauna body treatment. Botanica’s sauna session takes a detour from traditional visibility-inhibiting steam techniques and arsenals of rigged blow dryers, instead inflicting infrared rays of tranquility with an advanced heating system.
Owner of ReNew Life Clinic and a licensed colon hydrotherapist, Bonnie Barrett gently flushes toxins from bodily pipes to engender holistic, whole-body healing. To begin, patients don gowns or their favorite flannel union suit in a private treatment room, where technicians assemble a purification system including disposable tubing. During the procedure, warm, filtered water flows leisurely through the entire large intestine, sweeping up accumulated waste and bacteria and whisking them out via single-use tubes. Aside from possibly curbing symptoms such as gas, bloating, and fatigue, the 60-minute treatment tones the colon to enable peristalsis and may invigorate bodies and leave them feeling lighter.
Bodies in need of a little “me time” need look no further than Clearwater Salon & Spa, where a team of licensed beauty professionals awaits to deliver total-body pampering. After serving each guest a complimentary glass of wine, the staff ushers in relaxation with deep-tissue and hot-stone massages or promotes softer, more youthful skin with microdermabrasions and soothing facials. The salon and spa also employs an event coordinator for special events such as weddings or black-tie pie-eating championships, where parties can enjoy packages built around massages, hairstyling, and professional makeup.

Ann Palomar and her team strive to help others feel their best by combining relaxing spa treatments with massage modalities ranging from relaxation massage to cranio-sacral therapy.

Clients relax in shiatsu massage chairs during shampoos, and they can also take advantage of complimentary glasses of wine, freshly ground coffee, and exotic teas during treatments.
