A waterfall babbles over stones and splashes plants outside. Inside the themed private rooms set the scene for massage and holistic therapies. Touch of Class Day Spa's serene decor and skilled technicians have caught the eyes of many. Even former Coral Springs mayor Scott Brook praises the place, echoing the state emperor in saying, "I love coming to Touch of Class. I love everything about the place from the moment I walk in: The fragrance is wonderful, the service is excellent."
The spa specializes in couples massage, though it also offers custom and clinical facials, body wraps and scrubs, and waxing. Duos can settle down for a side-by-side massage in the garden-themed couples room or step into the second floor's Moroccan couples room, where swaths of vivid fabric billow out from the ceiling. Indian, Hawaiian, Japanese, and Thai treatment rooms also swaddle clients in exotic patterns and ambiances.
Grasshopper-green walls and peach floor tiles flank the brightly lit space at Top Priority Salon, whose staff has been pampering clients for more than 16 years. Within the cheery interior, hairstylists occupy one side of the floor, reinventing looks with cut and color treatments fortified by products from the industry’s best-known names, such as Schwarzkopf, Goldwell, Pravana, and Redken. Nail artists showcase their talents on the opposite side of the salon, inviting clients to take a seat and enjoy an indulgent manicure, topped off with standard nail polish or acrylics. Additionally, cushy pedicure thrones encourage relaxation throughout indulgent hot-stone pedicures, enhanced by skin-softening masks and finished with polish. The salon also offers waxing for the face, underarms, and even the hands and fingers for those tired of masking their insecurities with restrictive oven mitts.
Infinite Health & Wellness Group's Dr. Bruce Cherlow has been administering chiropractic services and holistic treatments in Parkland for more than two decades. At his respected practice, a staff of patient advocates, x-ray technicians, and massage therapists use non-invasive techniques to treat the whole body rather than just responding to symptoms as they pop up or installing bionic body parts after every illness. Dr. Cherlow adjusts the spine, prescribes corrective exercises, and offers nutritional counseling to address a wide range of issues, from whiplash and soreness to allergies, pinched nerves, and sciatica. Therapeutic Swedish massage or deep-tissue treatments can boost blood flow and remove toxins, while postural screenings help unveil previously hidden maladies.
Royal Treatment Skin Care & Beauty’s owner, Samantha Kerr, doesn't need curtains or wall partitions to ensure her guests’ privacy. Her one client at a time philosophy calls for each guest to receive the dedicated attention of an aesthetician undistracted by other customers tapping their feet in the lobby or clambering through the air ducts.
This allows Kerr and her team to do what they do best: cleanse, exfoliate, and extract toxins from the skin. The spa’s menu of services includes facials and peels that target specific skin conditions as well as body-smoothing, makeup, eyelash extensions, and waxing treatments. When she's not engaged in one-on-one consultations with her clients, Kerr keeps busy by hosting interactive training workshops in various beauty treatments.
Owner Dori Mirkow left her job in the accounting world to build clients' confidence instead of their bank accounts. Before opening Goddess Sanctuary, she went back to school and became a licensed aesthetician. She uses her knowledge to deep-clean pores and exfoliate skin during facials, which can be enhanced with specialty masks, paraffin dips, and eye masks. She wraps clients in soothing herbs and minerals, including sea algae, sea clay, or cocoa powder, and bronzes pallid skin with a self-tanning cream that absorbs into freshly exfoliated skin. No matter the service, Mirkow includes reiki, reflexology, and aromatherapy in each one without charging you extra or demanding a map to your coin collection.
