For Irina Kerfoot, massage therapy is a necessary part of a holistic lifestyle. A certified massage therapist, Irina employs her experience in a variety of techniques to enhance the physical and spiritual wellness of her clients, whether performing the long, sweeping strokes of a Swedish massage or lifting muscle tension with heated stones. She also applies her knowledge of massage’s myriad benefits during each appointment, helping clients decrease anxiety, and boost their concentration.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all of the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The beauty experts at Mystique Salon transform clients into magnets for compliments with an array of hair, nail, and skin services. Skilled stylists cleanse coifs and administer all-over color or highlights using products by American Crew, Pureology, and Redken. For extra flair, they even incorporate feathers, tinsel, and dreamcatcher extensions that ward off nightmares of mullets chasing you around. In addition to hair services, the team also smoothes skin with facials and body waxes, and applies permanent makeup for long-lasting beauty.
Za Zen Day Spa provides a relaxing atmosphere for personal wellness treatments tailored to the physical, mental, and emotional needs of all gracious guests. With today’s Groupon, stresstronauts will hop inside an infrared sauna suit body-wrap and let far-infrared rays therapeutically remove toxins, improve blood flow, and speed up metabolic processes, rejuvenating the body from mind to toe. During the treatment, the increased body temperatures trigger white blood cell and T-cell production, which can enhance immune system functionality and overall health. To appease esthetic aspirations, this easy and relaxing process also opens clogged pore doors, evicting dirt and oil, which then reduces acne and other class portrait disasters, such as forgetting a comb or using pizza instead of makeup powder. Relax overworked gray matter or the human flesh it controls and enjoy a total-body tune-up at Za Zen Day Spa.
