The massage therapists and aestheticians at Body Works Day Spa nurture the body and mind with a full menu of soothing services. Skincare treatments cleanse and rejuvenate pores, and all-natural spray tans imbue hides with a sun-kissed glow without exposure to damaging UV rays. Waxing sessions remove unwanted hair from virtually anywhere for a few weeks, and laser hair-removal treatments yield longer-lasting results. In the privacy of a special room, couples massages allow pairs to lie side by side as therapists knead away their tension, knots, and his-and-hers charlie horses.
The sheer breadth of the spa menu at Orange Skye Body and Beauty Bar speaks to its staff's chief goal: to heal and beautify at once. Massages soothe overworked bodies and minds with aromatherapy or hot stones. Facials erase blemishes, firm skin, and relax their recipients. Infrared sauna sessions evict toxins and ease pain, and full body wraps or scrubs soften and tighten skin.
Red Phoenix Wellness Center's founder, Lisa Shapiro, has been a licensed massage therapist for more than 32 years. During her career, she's had a chance to ply her stress-relieving skills on all types of bodies, including dancers, athletes, and bodybuilders. She even toured with the cast and crew of Bob Fosse's Dancin' in the early '80s, an experience that allowed her to perfect her dynamic skills and a mean sideways shuffle with a shoulder roll. Today, she continues to use her healing hands to treat everything from back and neck pain and sciatica to migraines and nerve impingement, drawing from modalities that range from basic Swedish to energizing shiatsu.
Bathed in the gentle glow of subdued, relaxing light, Impressions Day Spa’s talented staff deploys upwards of 20 years of industry experience as they lavish bodies in serenity-inducing services. The spa’s dedication to individualized care is evidenced in the lush private treatment rooms wherein aestheticians tailor treatments such as microdermabrasion and organic airbrush tanning to fit each patron’s skin type and accommodate comfort levels. Bolstering existing beauty remains a spa specialty, but Impressions' team of RMTs also perfects the art of stress erasing through treatments such as Swedish massage, which can help relieve trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician.
Mother-daughter team Claudia and Gabrielle dreamed up Frasada Salon & Day Spa. The multi-level salon and spa they’ve since brought to life houses private rooms, where clients can relax in the warm, tangoing light of candles during massages and more than a dozen types of facials. A curved staircase leads guests to the second floor salon, where they relax in oversized pedicure chairs while getting their toes ready for sandal season or bubble-wrap-stomping season. Long glass shelves brim with products from brands such as Goldwell and Unite and frame sun-filled rooms with angel statues, idyllic murals, and potted plants.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
