For more than 12 years, the staff at Blue Mountain Health & Body Work has calmed and beautified visitors with natural therapies. A crew of certified and licensed massage therapists customizes treatments for each client, drawing from various modalities, including Swedish, lymphatic drainage, deep tissue, and reflexology. Other treatments, such as facials and body wraps, not only boost aesthetic appeal, but also de-stress with the help of included massages that have the same calming effect as singing whale songs around the campfire.
At Pure Envy, lash expert Tana extends and embellishes her clients' eyesprouts with sets of synthetic Xtreme Lashes. During a 90-minute lash-lengthening procedure, Tana will apply lush, semi-permanent lashes, causing your sight spheres to appear brighter and more open-minded. After one session, ladies can expect to enjoy up to four weeks of natural-looking wink enhancements. Customers who already enjoy perfectly preened eyelid tassels can opt instead for their choice of waxing services on areas such as the eyebrows ($15), the underarms ($20), or a full leg ($55).
A portmanteau of spa and salon, Spalon combines the hair, nail, and skin treatments of a salon with the relaxing services of a spa. The extensive service menu is housed in an equally expansive interior. Browns, beiges, and abundant plant life permeate the multiroom interior, evoking a sense of nature while clients relax during hot-stone massages, seaweed and french green-clay body masks, and Brazilian blowouts.

A century ago, the ailing sought relief in the naturally occurring salt caves of Canada, Europe, and Asia. Today, visitors to Hygea Wellness Co & Salt Room follow in the footsteps of their afflicted predecessors. Seven tons of kosher Dead Sea salt frosts the walls and floors of a cavernous room where customers relax and inhale its healing effects or season the rims of their margaritas. The fine salt aerosol, chock-full of minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, can help to assuage skin and breathing maladies. The salty lungfuls breed negative ions in the body, diminishing free radicals and bacteria that contribute to allergies, asthma, and even the common cold. The cave safely restores health to adults and kids alike, but it actually works faster in youngsters, who stay entertained with sandbox toys, books, and DVDs. Their parents can attach laptops to electrical plugs and surf free WiFi during sessions, or they can simply enjoy the memories of mom's perfectly seasoned chicken noodle soup engendered by the mineral-laden room. Relaxation continues during massages, body wraps, and salt scrubs.

As for the benefits of her treatments, there are many, including decreased anxiety, boosted energy levels, reduced fatigue, and improved joint flexibility.
