Tucked inside Daytona Beach Resort, Terra Acqua Day Spa shelters weary travelers and residents from the hustle and bustle of the outside world. From inside private treatment rooms, Hawaiian-made candles fill the air with the intoxicating scent of coconut as skilled staff members ease tension with soothing massage techniques. Body scrubs from local vendors gently whisk expired cells from corpuses, and imported creams and body wraps pare down hazardous curves. The pampering continues outside on the ocean deck, where cabana-shaded massage tables pair sessions with fresh air and the coos of relaxed conch shells.
Warmed bamboo branches , heated river rocks , and peppermint oils are just a few of the natural elements that the licensed massage therapists at NewAgeTouch incorporate into their treatments. Salt scrubs marry skincare and massage, loosening muscles with hot towels before a mixture of Dead Sea salt, aromatherapy, and oil are applied to the skin in a cadence that mimics Swedish massage strokes. Afterward, skin feels softer to the touch than a coat made from luxuriant muppet fur. NewAge Touch also sells skincare products, massage supplies, and pillow sprays to soothe the senses just before bed.
Custom spray tans from Beach Bronze Airbrush Tans are well-traveled: they've been given in Grammy gift baskets, worn during the Miss USA pageant, and photographed on models featured in Maxim and Playboy. Their wide reach is understandable, given that the eco-certified organic formula takes only two hours to develop into its final, flattering hue. Additionally, each airbrush tan avoids common tanning pitfalls, such as streaks, orange coloration, and one toe complaining that it's less bronze than the others. The tan is also popular among plastic surgeons and dermatologists, because it can minimize imperfections without damaging the skin.
Cathleen Bellerose was a nurse for 20 years, and she saw the effects of pain and injury on many of her patients. She herself struggled with debilitating leg pain, and she sought an alternative to traditional medication, which she found in massage therapy. During her studies, she was able to locate and then soothe the cause of pain in her own muscles, and now at Pink Lotus Healing on the go massage, she strives to do the same for others. Cathleen offers numerous modalities, such as fibromyalgia, trigger-point, and Thai massages.
A trip to the islands is the most relaxing getaway. The staff at Java Hair Company strive to recreate that state of relaxation with a tropical atmosphere and a roster of beautifying services. Expert hair stylists snip clients' hair into face-flattering shapes, adding color and highlights to add dimension without using hairspray to sculpt it into a cube. Facials restore moisture to tired skin, and massages release tension and aches. The gel polish used in manicures resists chips for up to two weeks, and feet get scrubbed and lotioned up during pedicures.
