The Lounge employs a fusion methodology during each relaxation massage. Specialists employ modified Swedish-massage actions, including long strokes and kneading motions, to warm up muscle tissue, address each client's unique needs, and impart the spirit of the Viking. The 70-minute service also includes a body scrub, utilizing sugar or salt that sloughs off dead skin as it hydrates heads, necks, shoulders, and feet. Or clients may choose to have the therapist shoo away tension from tired tootsies with precise pressure during the foot treatment that accompanies the 90-minute option. Additionally, warm towels loosen tense sinews, and a choice of body butter helps clients slink through turnstiles with ease.

Most people wouldn’t associate the military with relaxation, and neither does former army man Jason Fells. During his six-year stint in the employ of Uncle Sam, he dreamed of dedicating himself to healing. Today, with characteristic discipline and precision, he soothes bodies through massage, clears up complexions with LED light therapy, and tightens elasticity with anti-aging facial massages. When he's not redirecting chi through reiki, he redistributes calories as a personal trainer and tries to understand the jumping jack's deep-seated resentment toward jump ropes as an exercise psychologist.
As a former contestant in the Mrs. Virginia pageant, owner Lesley Cook knows the impact seasoned professionals and top-notch products have on beauty. That's why she staffs Rejuvenation Day Spa with knowledgeable specialists ready to pamper clients with treatments fueled by Dermalogica products, which are free of common irritants and ingredients that often cause breakouts, such as artificial fragrances and pizza grease. A master aesthetician performs the spa's noninvasive Hollywood face-lift—which uses gentle microcurrent pulses and vitamin-enriched gels to soften and smooth skin—and professional Glam makeup artists beautify clients for special occasions. Because Rejuvenation Day Spa is located inside the Peninsula Pain and Rehab facility, clients can further their wellness with nearby chiropractic care and acupuncture.
The appendage attendants at DeStress Express spruce-up weathered digits with multistep nail treatments. The Open-Minded manicure and pedicure begins by immersing parched limbs in a warm soak before nail technicians prune overgrown cuticles. A scrub-fueled massage smoothes ashen skin and polish deposits decorate hands with less hassle than having them reupholstered. The Healing Ritual manicure and pedicure adds an extra step, following the massage with a creamy mask that infuses skin with rich moisture.
