Nothing is happening inside At Peace Flotation & Massage Spa's float spas—at least not as far as the eye or ear can tell. But change is still taking place. As bodies float inside a lightproof, soundproof flotation spa atop skin-temperature water made buoyant by 800 pounds of epsom salts, the mind sinks into deep relaxation. Spa staff finds that a one-hour session can impart the same restful feeling as four hours of sleep in a bath of warm milk and soothe the symptoms of chronic back pain, fatigue, high blood pressure, asthma, and jet lag.
Alongside At Peace's two private float suites—complete with showers and dressing areas—treatment rooms house independent massage therapists well-versed in a range of therapeutic styles. Swedish massage utilizes long and glissading strokes to improve circulation, and deep-tissue massage relies on penetrative kneads to release pent-up pressure. Therapists also specialize in prenatal, sports, orthopedic, aromatherapy, and chair massage.
Named one of the Top Spas and Med Spas in Tarrant County by the Fort Worth Business Press in 2008, 2009, and 2010, The Spa At The Village's aestheticians rejuvenate clients' skin and spirits with spa and holistic treatments. The extensive roster of services, which ranges from facials and massages to hydrotherapy and weight loss, helps guests balance internal health and external beauty.
Spa parties make each birthday or bachelorette party a simultaneously fun and beautifying event, and the wellness club can help celebrate birthdays and holidays with special promotions and gifts. The spa's boutique also hawks high-end organic ?minence products, HerbaSway serums, and FarmHouse Fresh products, ensuring that clients can exfoliate, tone, and moisturize the complexion of a favorite teddy bear or a sleeping grandmother in the comfort of their own homes.
After running her own spa in South Africa, Elize van Beljon ferried over to the States to open Spa By Di Vine?s stately stone-flanked doors in 2008. Trained throughout the globe in skincare, massage therapy, and makeup artistry, Elize boasts more than 28 years of professional experience and an extensive list of spa-centered certifications to help clients to refine skin and soothe tense bodies. Each visit begins with a personalized consultation to determine skin type, treatment options, and product preferences before delving into the tension-melting session. The spa?s selection of services consists solely of pharmaceutical-grade, clinically proven, and FDA?approved regimens that ensure a pampering experience as science-centered as sipping champagne from an Erlenmeyer flask.
Helmed by registered nurse Marie Reyes, SkinSpa Med's staff of licensed aestheticians and massage therapists pampers appearances with a wide variety of cosmetic treatments. The med spa's stable of six noninvasive lasers zaps away sagging skin and undesirable texture, rendering faces or cellulite-afflicted areas smooth and taut enough for quarter-bouncing contests. Alternatively, Dr. Kevin Light consults with guests interested in invasive procedures to dramatically alter features through cosmetic surgery. To accommodate frequent customers, SkinSpa Med offers memberships that allow guests to mix and match multiple treatments each month.
By his own admission, licensed massage therapist Ty Saffold is a pretty laid-back guy. This personality trait suits him well at maZZage, where he helps others reach his level of relaxation with services that include massages, aromatherapy sessions, and foot scrubs. Whichever treatment you opt to indulge in, you can rest assured that Saffold will perform it to the best of his ability. To ensure optimal relaxation, Saffold plays tranquil music or background noise, such as the sound of waves cresting or a teddy bear being smashed repeatedly against a wall.
Straw-hued walls and weathered metal accents give an earthy feel to the treatment rooms that ensconce Southlake Skin Care Studio’s clients, who linger beneath a velvet throw during treatments. Nestled within the Suite Escapes Salon complex, Julie Williams deep cleanses skin with European-style facials fortified with vitamins and plant-derived serums. Peels ranging in potency and hard and soft wax arm aesthetes for procedures, and the scents of hibiscus, pumpkin, and berries drift from products, raising fond memories of growing up in a cornucopia.
