The full-service salon—tackling hair, nails, skin, massages, and tans—beautifies patrons in an eclectic setting. Black salon chairs and hair stations pop against pink walls. Ample sunlight bounces off shiny surfaces, including polished concrete floors, hot-pink mod chairs, and the smiling faces of the beauty pros. Other eclectic touches include eye-catching chandeliers, a zebra-print rug, and a large print of the Eiffel Tower with paint splattered all over it.
Inside the soothing surrounds of World of Wellness Day Spa, practiced pamperers coddle patrons with all manner of indulgent treatments aimed at revitalizing weary protoplasm and enhancing holistic health. During the refreshing massage-moisture facial, dingy mugs are scrubbed clean with water-based cleansers, blanketed in a restorative mask, and swaddled in an ambrosia of wrinkle- and acne-abating moisturizers. The procedure lasts 35–50 minutes, depending on skin condition, and exclusively employs products free of pore-clogging synthetic oils, parabens, and teenage angst.
Formerly Christian Avery Spa, Renew Day Spa & Salon houses a team of licensed massage therapists, stylists, and aestheticians that fawns over patrons throughout each massage, facial, and manicure in a cornucopia of rejuvenating services. The staff focuses on building a clientele not by relying on grandiose décor but by establishing long-term relationships with customers. In addition to a lenient six-hour cancellation policy, Renew Day Spa & Salon promises a calm environment untouched by the noisy sound of cellphone/pager courtship rituals.
Bodywork Therapy's licensed massage therapists have the healing hands to help rid bodies of everyday stress and stubborn aches through a variety of massage services. Those wanting to depart from the physical and psychological tension brought on by bunnies photographed with human ears can relax with a one-hour Swedish massage, where an array of massage techniques help to increase circulation and remove metabolic waste from the muscles. Along with running through a field of balloons, a Swedish massage is often recommended as part of a regular stress-management program. To delve beyond the dermis, opt for a one-hour deep-tissue massage that penetrates finicky fascia, stubborn scar tissue, and uptight muscles. Helpful with chronic musculoskeletal pain, injury rehabilitation, and inflammation due to arthritis and tendonitis, this style of massage is usually performed just on the areas that are especially tight or sore, with lighter, Swedish techniques applied to the rest of the body to avoid turning muscles into stretched-out rubbing bands.
Each of the facials at Spa Benefique is designed to gently treat problematic skin. The Image acne facial douses pesky pimples with a blend of salicylic acid, enzymes, retinol, and benzoyl peroxide. The Vitamin C facial blasts away free radicals and air kisses squatting in pores. The Refinement facial aims to diminish fine lines by sloughing off dead skin cells with gentle chemical exfoliants. The experts can also tend to matters below the neck with such treatments as a massage that send muscles into a deep sleep and warm wax that sends unwanted hairs away from the legs and bikini area.
