Within La Ritz Spa and Salon's 4,000-square-foot beauty center, aestheticians and massage therapists dote on clients in 15 private treatment rooms. Skincare experts draw from a menu of more than 15 facials, including a pumpkin-peel facial whose enzymes won't irritate sensitive skin and an olive-oil and leaf mask for dry and mature skin.
Clients reward their muscles for carrying cars over large puddles by undergoing the stress- and tension-eliminator massage, a bodywork treatment that starts with a scalp rub and slowly works its way down to the neck, shoulders, arms, and feet. The center's staff also includes hairstylists who leverage international training to yield fashionably cut and colored 'dos.
Immix Hair Gallery & Day Spa has an inside-out approach to beauty, which means offering detoxifying treatments alongside a host of spa and salon services. Stylists and technicians soothe stressed muscles, smooth frizzy hair, and reveal the natural glow present inside every light-bulb-eating human, with treatments such as ionic detox footbaths, ear candling, and detox facials. In the past, guest speakers have guided hair-extension workshops, where attendees nibble refreshments, tote home some swag, and learn about nurturing their own backyard hair gardens.
The La Vie Spa & Salon story began simply, when Amy and Ken Elias started their spa in a cozy house with a small team of massage and hydro therapists. Since then, La Vie Spa & Salon has blossomed into a comprehensive 5,000 square foot monument to beauty and health, with a diverse menagerie of professional stylists, estheticians, and specialists. While they provide a wide range of fundamental beauty services—such as haircuts, manicures, and facials—the staff also betters bodies with a slate of unorthodox offerings—such as colon cleanses, hypnotherapy, and rejuvenating bio-mat sessions. Their therapists cull from a sweeping repertoire of bodywork, including healing deep-tissue and detoxifying lymphatic drainage massage.
Their staff of fitness professionals lead personal training and yoga classes in the onsite gym. For communal pampering, The team also hosts spa parties complete with specialty treatments, food, and drinks, ideal for bridal groups preparing for a wedding or varsity men's rugby teams hoping to intimidate their opponents with their crystal clear complexions.
Able to accommodate all skill levels, Shapes' yoga offers morning and evening classes to relieve stress, strengthen and tone the bodies of all clients, regardless of age, shape or mindset. Unfurling limbs like yoga daylilies, students are spread across a 2,400 square-foot wood floor beneath the high ceilings of a relaxing, restored historic loft. Seated poses are held between 3 -5 minutes during Yin Yoga classes through breath, meditation and occasionally carbonite freezing, targeting deeper tissue in the lower back, hamstring and knees. Conversely, Yoga / Pilates classes utilize constant movement to build core strength while lengthening muscles and developing balance needed to hold poses on unicycles. Yoga for Fitness similarly molds through movement, as students gain strength and flexibility. Though students are encouraged to bring their own equipment, mats, blocks, straps and balls are available for use free of charge.
