Feet traverse across the wooden floors of Deer Park Medical Pavilion while track lighting beams down on energetically waving arms. A Zumba class is in session, and students are hardly aware they’re burning calories or left the stove on as they let the upbeat music take over and lead them in dance. But this is only one of scenarios taking place. Elsewhere, clients lie prone on plush treatment beds as aestheticians ease fine lines and acne with hydroxy formulas and vitamin-infused masks. Fitness classes and spa treatments come together under one roof at Imagine Spa & Fitness, where clients let go of everyday stresses while basking in the decor of stone and marble walls and soft, espresso-colored sofas.
Wonderland Foot Spa helps relieve muscular pain and stress through reflexology foot treatments and therapeutic massages. The staff practices traditional Chinese tui na massage, an art that stretches back more than 4,000 years. Aimed at mollifying chronic pain, tui na treatments blend techniques such as acupressure and soft-tissue massage.
Offering a full suite of services, the staff members of Salon D'Artista and Spa beautify and makeover visitors with precision cuts, hair coloring, permanent makeup, and facial waxing. Stylists tame manes within a colorful space marked by rust-colored walls and rows of red chairs, and aestheticians perform a range of shadow-puppet shows and facials with Dermalogica products while tucked away in private, pastel-colored rooms.
Aria 366's massage therapist and aesthetician pries the signs of stress from the grip of muscles head to toe, leaving clients refreshed both physically and mentally. In the single-person massage room, their massages incorporate therapeutic and relaxing modalities accentuated with hot stones, warm towels, or scented oils upon request. To address skincare concerns, facials generate dramatic change by utilizing everything from grapefruit and honeysuckle extracts to ultrasonic therapy and LED microcurrent technology. Body treatments improve skin tone and texture below the chin, nourishing with mineral-rich volcanic ash and sea minerals to leave skin as soft and radiant as a bonfire fueled by silk bathrobes.
The licensed massage therapists and aesthetic professionals at Relaxation And Transformation Spa consider themselves artists. Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience, they use their skills and high-tech equipment to help clients look better and feel more comfortable in their skin. Available at three locations, the spa's services include massages, facials, and cavi-lipo treatments designed to smooth away cellulite by subjecting it to ultrasound energy and a stern talking-to.
The orange glow of a salt lamp softly illuminates the room as licensed massage therapist Andrew Kressel kneads organic, lavender-infused oil into his clients’ sore spots. He has been alleviating tension and pain for more than 15 years with massages customized to individual needs, myofascial therapy, and the Australian-born Bowenwork technique. Using the Bowenwork technique, he dispenses gentle strokes to lull the body into a deeply relaxed state, which can continue to develop throughout the following 10 days, much like a short game of Monopoly.
