The Spa at Commerce Casino ensorcells forms with treatments that sap away stress and improve introductory aesthetics. Revivify tired mugs with the 30-minute Fast Signature Facial, which begins with an in-depth skin analysis that identifies epidermal problems, including dryness, excessive oil, and difficult-to-detect camouflage pigmentation. Pore cleaning unclogs acne-prone skin, followed by a choice of a hydrating or deep-cleansing mask that lets face-bearers customize their rejuvenating treatments. In the therapeutic Swedish massage, skillful digits ease kinked-up bone movers, leaching out achiness and leaving muscles relaxed enough to avenge crushing Twister defeats from arrogant Gumbys. An ionic foot bath finishes off spa sessions, gently coaxing toxins out through feet with the allure of a warm bath.
Guests arriving to The Raven Spa may find themselves feeling like they've traveled a thousand miles away from their everyday cares. The aesthetic is both spiritual and indulgent, with stone statues that stand sentinel beside a plush purple couch and lush, sun-drenched drapes and glistening chandeliers holding court over an eastern-inspired communal massage chamber. A colorful patio overflowing with exotic flowers welcomes visitors to sit and soak in sunlight streaming between red and white umbrellas, creating a peaceful oasis for quiet reading or self-reflection. "Whoever comes here feels like it's their own," a front desk manager told LX TV's 1st Look, "Our whole goal is to take you away from whatever's out there."
The spa's international decor also mirrors its diverse menu of services, which includes acupuncture, facials, and hammam––a traditional Turkish soak that corrals plant extracts and herbs to nourish and detoxify the body. Therapists work out imbedded muscle kinks through seven varieties of massage including traditional Thai massage, which combines rhythmic kneads with yoga-like stretches and Hawaiian lomi lomi massage, which often sees practitioners using their elbows to nudge tension until it gets the hint and leaves.
The stresses and anxieties of the outside world dissipate at the hands of Bahn Sabai’s massage therapists and aestheticians, who usher patrons into a stress-free oasis and set their minds at ease with a list of rejuvenating spa services. Hard walls of tension crumble under the influence of the therapists’ signature massages, which range from the botanically based relaxation of herbal ball and aromatherapy techniques to the focused finger pressures of Japanese shiatsu. Customized massages take the spa experience one step further, blending various modalities to accommodate the unique contours of your muscles and wind-up keyhole.
To keep countenances in enviable form, Bahn Sabai's aestheticians use microdermabrasion, which scares off dead skin cells, scarring, and age spots with ultra-fine crystals and menacing thunderclaps. When dealing with fine lines and other facial fissures, they harness the noninvasive light energy of LED light therapy to stimulate collagen production and enhance circulation.
Ore-rich salt crystals mined from the Himalayas. Mud dug from the mountains of Korea's Chungcheong Jincheon region. Such substances, prized for their energizing and detoxifying powers, line the floors and walls of Crystal Spa's four mineral-therapy rooms constructed in the style of a traditional Korean jimjilbang. Beyond these natural therapies, the facility also maintains a designation as an Aveda Concept spa. This means that its practitioners use Aveda's plant-derived products during each massage, body treatment, and facial they perform. Further amenities include soft water fresh from the spa's filtration system, complimentary WiFi, multiple big-screen TVs, and a cinema-size viewing screen that plays sporting events, movies, and 42-hour vacation slideshows. The staff also serves select dishes from Korean restaurant Sohyang in a café replete with traditional low tables and floor-level seating.
Three principles have made Nailagio's owner and nail technician Judy Tran popular with celebrities such as Jessica Simpson, Heather Locklear, and Jada Pinkett Smith. For more than 25 years, the beauty veteran has built her nail career on these basics: precisely prepare the nail bed, use uncompromising technical expertise, and only work with the finest-quality products.
At her highly sanitized facility, Judy and a team of nail technicians use more than 10 brands, including OPI, Essie, Poshe, and Young Nails, to fortify nails with acrylic or fiberglass covers, Shellac or gel polish, and French tips.
