Methylparaben, sodium lauryl sulfate, and diaminobenzene are just a few of the dirty words you're unlikely to hear at Korcare Spa & Wellness. Instead, this all-natural, organic spa favors products free from harmful chemicals, and blends formulas from Éminence Organic and SpaRitual into its large menu of relaxing services. Facials begin with a thorough skin analysis so aestheticians can customize a treatment plan that will help reverse the dulling effects of environmental changes, hormone fluctuations, allergies, and doggy kisses. One-hour wraps use herbs and oils to release body impurities or wrap the body in algae to restore hydration, and tension yields under the soothing strokes of therapeutic or Swedish massages that may be enhanced by reflexology, aromatherapy, or myofascial techniques.
Classical sculptures and mirrors create an Old-World atmosphere at Spa Constantine, where spa travelers navigate the lengthy list of spa services to discover treatments that improve health, appearance, and mood. Spa Constantine touts opulent furnishings, from carved wooden benches softened by gilded pillows to tall golden pillars capped by plush greenery. Pedicure stations cradle clients in reclined chairs with whirlpool tubs, and pedicurists use the glow from crystal chandeliers to differentiate toes from dropped grapes or missing glass eyeballs.
Just through the front door of Silk Roses Salon Spa, a huge, hand-painted rose blossoms on the wall—an explosion of color against the white background lit by the sun streaming through the window. The vibrant crimson of that rose sets the tone the entire space, instilling its passionate hues in the paint and furniture and—at least figuratively—the stylists and aestheticians. Specializing in nail services, massage, and skin treatments, the staff relies on professional grade products such as Remy Laure and G.M. Collin to keep clients looking their best. Services take place either in the open salon amid friendly conversation or within private massage rooms where clients can relax knowing that no one can hear them purr and discover they're a cat.

Though he founded Enlightened Hands Wellness & Massage, it would be inaccurate to describe Michael J. Bouvier simply as a massage therapist. He's an accomplished wellness arts practitioner who has done everything from study under master herbalist Ron Teeguarden to taking hands-on anatomy courses to becoming a certified qigong instructor. In regards to massage, Michael has mastered many techniques, including, though not limited to, myofascial release and reflexology. True to his holistic approach to care, his service menu covers a broad range of treatments. Massages might incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, or trigger-point modalities, while qigong sessions and stability ball classes teach posture exercises, stretches, and breathing techniques to relieve stress and recharge the body's AA batteries.

They also perform anticellulite treatments to smooth out stubborn areas of fat and offer a Swedish-massage course to train hands how to knead a rib-eye steak into a meatball.
