Salon Ultima pampers clients from scalp to toe with its indulgent spa services. The menu of beautifying treatments is diverse, ranging from facial waxes and hairstyling to restorative mani-pedis with long-lasting gel polish. Guests may also revamp their complexions with microdermabrasion or request a permanent-makeup consultation with a licensed cosmetologist.
The trained paw pamperers at A+ Nails shine up nails with the refining ministrations of an express mani-pedi. Over the course of approximately 30 to 50 minutes, skilled technicians equip opposable knuckles with shiny new finger helmets worthy of a Costanza hand model. Patrons bold enough to put hands and feet where a member of the skilled staff can see them reap rewards including a hand and foot soak, hot-towel massages, and a neat nail trimming of fingernails and toenails. To ensure a polished appearance, technicians gently groom cuticles into more sightly dispositions. Finally, perfectly symmetrical tips enjoy pampering denied their formerly unruly predecessors, including a gentle massage with skin-silkening lotion. The speedy service concludes with a coat of colorful polish, sealing in a brightly hued shine for top and bottom tensomes.
Fully intending to pursue a career in physical therapy, Jeremy Miracle began to study various massage modalities as a means to an end. He realized quickly, however, that he needn't go any further—he had discovered his passion. Believing in massage's therapeutic benefits and its ability to cultivate a pain-free lifestyle, Miracle founded Nautical Massage.
Instead of asking clients to decide on one modality for the entire treatment, Jeremy begins every session by asking them to describe their discomfort, expectations, and Twister-playing habits. Based on this information, he administers a completely custom mélange of modalities that can include salutary deep-tissue work, relaxing Swedish techniques, and neuromuscular therapy. He also welcomes feedback throughout the entire session, constantly altering his game plan to accommodate each client's unique needs.
Surrounded by calming, neutral-toned walls, the treatment room gently reverberates the sounds of soft piano music. Clients can also bring along their own music or band of singing whales if it will help them to fall into a relaxed stupor more easily.
The skin therapists of Intuitive Skin Studio rely on advanced procedures to fight the signs of aging: diamond microdermabrasion, LED photo facials, radio frequency facials, micro-needling dermapen treatments, and LHE phototherapy. Of the five, the micro-needling dermapen may well be the most advanced method for stimulating collagen production in the face; its tiny needles penetrate the skin to create "micro injuries" that then heal stronger, aiming toward tightening and brightening skin. Every treatment includes a complimentary consultation, and all sessions take place in a private treatment room. Meanwhile, massage therapists pamper clients with relaxing, therapeutic sessions, employing Swedish, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques.
Stocked with four tiers of UV tanning beds alongside Norvell airbrush-tanning systems, House of Tans' meticulously clean facility invites clients to build bronzed glows for beach-ready complexions or special occasions. UV beds upgrade classic encapsulating designs with perks such as audio systems, cooling fans, and neck and shoulder reflectors that beam rays toward hard-to-reach spots. The salon’s retinue of trained airbrush technicians also mists patrons in a bronzer-enhanced Norvell tanning spray that inspires a natural-looking golden hue over 24 hours, conferring up to seven days of radiant skin that might taste like a California golden raisin. The salon also offers patrons access to a supply of Twilight Teeth whitening kits, which use UV rays to brighten smiles that contrast strongly with well-tanned skin tones.
Jody Tulloch and her team of massage therapists address tension on all fronts with massage therapy and invigorating spa services. Clients recline across heated tables that are cushioned by layers of padding as a therapist gently relaxes stiff spines, using coconut oil and grapeseed oil to glide their trained hands over areas of tension and harnessing essential oils to boost relaxation ease tenderness. During hot-stone massages, toasted basalt river rocks send heat deep into muscles, allowing tendons to warm up their vocal cords and quietly yodel. For those with TMJ, headaches, and sinus problems, Tulloch herself uses specialized techniques to ease the pain of these stubborn ailments. Body scrubs soften skin while infusing it with scents such as raspberry champagne or chocolate, and airbrush spray-tanning sessions tint bodies with a summery hue. Once clients emerge peaceful and relaxed from their private treatment rooms, they can prolong the experience by purchasing custom-blended essential oils to take home.
