The Mango Spa House's crack team of massage therapists and facial specialists lavishes the mind and body with a wide array of services such as waxing, reflexology massages, and facials. From the forehead to the feet, waxologists eliminate unwanted tufts, clearing away fuzz from the legs and bikini area for women and the chest and man-tini area for men. Aestheticians harness microcurrent technology for body-sculpting and facial treatments, whereas massage therapists mend musculatures with hand-applied Swedish, trigger-point, or reflexology kneadings that soothe away stress left over from a job interview's bomb-defusing section. The Mango Spa House also partners with local practitioners who come in to perform everything from acupuncture to detox massages.
With locations in Madrid, Hollywood, and New York, the European-owned Shlomi Salon houses a staff of stylists who are well-acquainted with the ins and outs of glamour. In addition to trimming and styling manes behind posh leather chairs, they perform a host of other cosmetic services that includes hair coloring and hair removal, as well as permanent and temporary makeup application. To straighten and strengthen frizzy or dry locks, they’ll slather them in their own line of keratin products, which includes a pre-shampoo, a treatment product, after-shampoo, and an after-conditioner.
Within Sakura Touch's quaint, cozy studio, massage therapists and aestheticians combine technical expertise with spa pampering. Patrons can relax during Swedish massages with warm neck wraps, deep-tissue kneading sessions, or aromatherapy massages with heated oil that drips directly onto the skin. All-natural salt scrubs slough away dead skin cells, leaving flesh soft and radiant. Patrons also can opt for reiki energy work or lymphatic drainage sessions, which can be conducted in studio or offsite in clients' homes.
Beauty Pros Direct gives you complete control over your hairstyle with five types of human-hair extensions: straight, body wave, ocean wave, medium curl, and tight curl. Once applied, the natural-looking extensions can be washed, straightened, and even colored as if they really did sprout from your scalp. One way in which they don't mimic natural hair, however, is that they don't shed often; a secure triple-stitching method keeps them in place.
Mark Lohmann's interest in health began when he witnessed its absence. As a child, he saw family members struggle with debilitating disease, and he began to wonder about ways he could restore their health. When he grew older and hopped on a track to become a yacht chef, Lohmann explored nutrition and often massaged his own shoulders to cope with "the long grueling hours spent on [his] feet for some two decades." When his parents' ailing health called him home in 2003, Lohmann began formally training in bodywork—starting with Active Isolated Stretching—before opening Planet Massage on Las Olas Boulevard in 2005.
After almost a decade at that location, Planet Massage relocated to a historical home in the SOLO district that has more than three times the space of the original location. But the ample space isn't the only upgrade; Planet Massage's new urban oasis is even more equipped to relax clients with its lush outdoor bamboo and mango gardens and free parking. Plus, the house is located on a tree-lined neighborhood street, blocks from the beach and within view of the Downtown skyline and any monsters trying to destroy it.
The new spa still soothes bodies with medically based bodywork that often combines multiple modalities and products, as well as with foot massages, heat packs, and pain-relieving Biofreeze treatments. But it also has added a variety of new pampering treatments to take place in the new treatment rooms.
