Salon Nouveau's sunny staff subdue everyday stresses with refreshing spa treatments. A new service fashioned by the salon's aestheticians, the soothing session is a relaxing regimen that hydrates and revitalizes tired skin, while kneading away muscle stress acquired after years on the competitive cheese-rolling circuit. Relax as an aesthetician begins the treatment with a light brushing—which aims to activate circulation and lightly exfoliate skin—followed by the addition of aromatic essential oils, relaxing the pelt until it falls dreamily into its dermal REM cycle. The paramount pampering experience culminates as the professional muscle magician soothes and caresses strained sinews with targeted strokes, leaving the body loose, luminous, and ready to backbend back into the world.
Spa NiVa pampers and beautifies every part of the body with a full service menu that incorporates treatments for skin care, massage, nails, and waxing. Using medical-grade skin care products, skin specialists clear pores and banish impurities with facials, peels, and dermaplaning, a treatment that scrapes away dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a surgical blade. Waxing treatments smoothen skin by removing hair with warm wax and microscopic landscapers who pull weeds from the roots. Nail technicians decorate fingers and toes with shellac polish or soften skin by dipping appendages into paraffin wax. Meanwhile, licensed massage therapists use kneading techniques and various degrees of pressure to alleviate stress, stiffness, and secretly being an invertebrate double agent.
