The staff at Simply Sassy Kids Spa knows that children aren't immune to stress, whether it's caused by school, sports, or convincing their parents to eat broccoli. That's why its colorful, pastel-hued salon aims to relax young girls and instill them with positive self-images. They accomplish this through services that add kid-friendly touches to spa classics, such as mani-pedis with bubblegum hand soaks and fizzy, ice-cream-scented footbaths. The pint-sized pamperings—which also include updos and makeup application—delight girls during everyday visits as well as parties, which let kids nibble cupcakes atop cushy beanbag chairs.
Herbs and essential oils mingle in the air, creating an intoxicating scent that seeps deep into clients' pores. So deep, in fact, that tension begins to dissipate before massage therapist Nneka even sets to work. This experience is known as the Herbal Rejuvenation therapeutic massage, one of Neo Bloom Spatique's many stress-melting types of bodywork. Nneka also offers Ultimate Foot Worx reflexology, which relaxes the entire body by working pressure points on the feet and hands, as well as the Heat Souffle Stone massage, which relies on warm stones to soothe the body.
Between her passion for massage and her gregarious personality, Kate Heriot has much to share in the way of healing. That’s why she founded MyMassage, where she kneads away knots and encourages her trained staff to expand their already considerable muscle-mending repertoires with new techniques. Ask Kate about the benefits of massage therapy and she will likely expound at length on its ability to ease tension from working long days at the office and heal muscles injured while carrying one’s boss to and from the bathroom.
At this Aveda hair salon and spa, the beauty specialists pamper and beautify their guests with gentle, plant-based products for hair and skin. Lavender accent walls in the hair salon and soothing blue walls in the private massage and body therapy room heighten the relaxation. For hands and feet, the spa designs more than just the typical mani-pedi. The treatment nurtures skin with warm seaweed masques, paraffin dips, and massages before refreshing nails with color or French styles.
