Away from the hustle and bustle of muscle chiseling, staffers including nail technicians, massage therapists, and a licensed aesthetician and manicurist can be found flitting about Studio Fit Day Spa as they gussy up weary patrons via lavish services. They restore dull complexions to their former radiance with a variety of facials, such as an acne-clearing facial or an age-erasing facial. Their nail treatments infuse digits with a dose of polished glamour.
For those looking for a spa treatment to boost their weight-loss results further, Studio Fit offers the Ultimate Body Applicator, a cloth wrap that encourages the tightening of epidermal exteriors and the reduction of cellulite when wrapped around the abdomen, back, legs, arms, or second head. A plant-based mixture permeates the cloth wrap, detoxifying skin with extracts of horse chestnut and green tea and oils of jojoba seed and rosemary leaf.
Sunny Daze Tanning and Salon's lineup of spray-tan technology and UV-tanning equipment—including beds, standup booths, and leg tanners—keeps skin beaming with a summery, straight-off-the-beach appearance. With tanning packages available by the session, month, or year, the facility helps clients maintain bronzed tones no matter the season. To sustain the health of epidermal surfaces, customers can stop spoon-feeding pureed carrots to each pore and instead load up on an arsenal of brand-name lotions, tonics, and bronzers available for purchase. Tanning aside, the salon's aestheticians sap stress during manicures, facials, and a variety of massages, including soft-tissue treatments and magnet therapy.
Before he opened his own practice, massage therapist Jack Dillender made sure he knew exactly what he was doing. Through collaborations with chiropractors and medical doctors and stints at various day spas, he honed techniques that work to unclog systemic blockages, reduce stress, and increase the body?s ability to heal itself. At The Way of Massage, Jack puts these techniques into practice during treatments that he tailors to his clients? unique maladies, from chronic aches to unoiled tin hinges. His couples massages incorporate hot stones, footbaths, and neck massages to bring twosomes closer together without forcing them to share a single table.
Stress relief can take many forms at Back Space Therapeutic Massage. The center's passionate, highly trained massage therapists do their best to tailor treatments to accommodate clients' individual needs. Long, gliding, Swedish techniques promote calm and relaxation. During deep-tissue sessions, the therapist applies focused pressure to especially tense knots, improving range of motion, alleviating chronic aches, and revealing each muscle's nougat center. In addition to hot-stone sessions, lymphatic-drainage massage, and other specialized modalities, the studio also offers reflexology and reiki energy work, which restore balance and holistic health throughout the entire body.
Though Shadonica Williams has been immersed in the beauty industry as a cosmetologist and then a nail technician since 1998, it's only recently that she decided to follow her other passion: massage. At Royal Treatment, she specializes in kneading knots out of her clients' muscles and fascia with Swedish, deep-tissue, and myofascial-release techniques. She sometimes combines these modalities with techniques such as trigger-point therapy and stretching for integrative massage therapy. While she applies her slow, precision strokes, Williams also educates clients on their bodies' inner workings.
Tara Barnett heals patients through the ancient art of acupuncture, which uses thin needles to target the body's 12 meridians.

During appointments, she can couple acupuncture treatments with her skills as a reiki master and in auriculotherapy, which applies pressure to specific points of the ear that correlate to different parts of the body.
