Sabrena Wicker had a light-bulb moment as she received her first massage: her career calling was to become a massage therapist. Wicker enrolled in massage school, earned a degree, and opened Tinker Massage and Day Spa Studio. Within the spa's softly lit treatment rooms, massage therapists practice several modalities and perform spa treatments for singles or doubles. To enhance bodywork sessions, the therapists incorporate elements of nature—heated stones infuse heat into muscles, essential oils perfume the air, and a charm of hummingbirds creates a relaxing breeze.
The packed shelves of Victory Nutrition Center's retail shop welcome physiques yearning for a boost with a sweeping selection of fitness supplements and vitamins. More than 100 sport-nutrition supplements from brands such as ALRI, Met-Rx, and CytoSport help muscles bulge smugly under fitted shirts and the paltry weight of jet liners. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals' multivitamins ($19.95 for 90 pills) fit 47 different vitamins, minerals, and herbs into a single daily tablet, and the company's Sleep-Rx ($39.95) dispels bedtime concerns with an all-natural formula that promotes relaxation. Customers pose supplement-based questions to helpful staff members roaming the store ready to explain why it's easier to get essential omega-3 fatty acids from Optimum Nutrition's fish-oil softgels ($13.99 for 100 pills) or cold-pressed flaxseed-oil softgels ($10.99 for 100 pills) than setting up a cardboard box propped on a stick to try to trap them.
Modern Elegance Salon provides hair, skin, and massage treatments tailored exclusively to each client. Stylists Amanda and Ashli excel at colors as well as retexturing to add shine, reduce frizz, and straighten hair. To complete the team, certified massage therapist Kristi specializes in a variety of modalities, unburdening her tense clients with bodywork ranging from Swedish and deep-tissue massage to reflexology.
The beauty professionals at Salon Prodigy diversify their clients’ beauty portfolio starting with the hair and nails. The makeover mavens get belles ready for the ball with on-trend or classic cuts, coloring services, and facial waxing. They also gussy up toenails and fingernails with spa mani-pedis with shellac polish that keeps its chromatic shine and, like a determined dietician, can resist chips for up to three weeks.
While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
