Rooted in the ancient salt chambers of Eastern European, Salt Sanctuary helps heal the body through exposure to a sterile and unique microclimate. Guests spend a soothing spell in either the rustic salt cave or the modernly appointed salt room, breathing in a safe and non-allergenic atmosphere that helps ease the symptoms of allergies, respiratory illnesses, and skin conditions. Salt Sanctuary’s cave boasts heated floors, reclining chairs, and a soothing in-room sounds system while the salt room includes a coffered ceiling and decorative, Himalayan-salt finished walls.
The bronzing pros at Tanning Bed help clients achieve a coppery glow by regularly outfitting each bed with new lamps and replenishing spray-tan booths with skin-darkening formulas. To keep tanners cool as they drink up Vitamin D, all 31 boutiques equip private rooms with maximum ventilation and one ton of air conditioning for every tanning bed, or the amount required to chill enough soda for a herd of thirsty polar bears. Guests can customize how frequently they tan by selecting from multiple membership or package options. Bronzers with a two-visit package ($9.99) must redeem both sessions within 30 days, whereas those with a 10-visit ($39.99) or 20-visit bundle ($69.99) can pepper the calendar with visits throughout one year. Memberships for 7 ($9.99), 30 ($39.99), or 90 ($89.99) consecutive days of tanning allow tanners to sustain a sun-kissed appeal and ultimately imprint body grooves into their bed of choice.
When Michele Taber, a licensed cosmetologist of two decades, decided to open Meeshe’ Salon and Spa in her native county, the beautifier selected a waterfront Cayuga Lake location that exuded tranquility. Her salon and spa treatments transfer the natural serenity indoors with mani-pedis augmented by seaweed wraps and full-body scrubs that exfoliate with sea salt instead of the traditional tool, corrugated cardboard. A fleet of freshly updated tanning beds warm bodies to a beachy glow, and shears or wax rid bodies of excess hair.
At Matthews Salon Spa, the staff strives to care for each client's whole self, meaning services work to nurture the body and spirit in addition to merely beautifying skin or hair. Using environmentally friendly Aveda products derived from plants and flowers, the staff cuts, colors, and treats hair as if it were the hair of their favorite news anchor. Spa facials, such as the self-renewal facial, rejuvenate skin while also integrating a foot and scalp treatment, and the staff also pampers clients with massages and spa packages.
Drawing on more than 3,800 procedures, Dr. Dean DeRoberts administers facial and bodily refinements with a keen eye and steady hand. His feature-enhancing procedures includes forehead lifts, nose surgery, tummy tucks, and liposuction treatments as well as less invasive treatments such as facials, Botox injections, and laser hair removal.
Ja Spa & Fitness's well-equipped gym beckons exercisers with a host of Cybex and Precor workout apparatuses and a menu of eco-friendly spa services for unwinding after intense sessions of sweat manufacturing. On the main floor, a strength-training circuit of Cybex Eagle gear welcomes challengers with tough resistance, and treadmills on the second level improve endurance for running after ding-dong ditches. In the gym's hardwood-floor studios, lively instructors lead a variety of group fitness classes such as boot camp, spin sessions on Trixter X-Bikes, and boxing sessions for women and children. Private chambers along the spa area's winding hallways ensconce clients, who can indulge in skin and nail services to boost bodily aesthetics. Three levels of tanning beds coat limbs in bronze hues, and a team of massage therapists plies tension from overworked muscles. Brick archways and a stonework fountain complement Ja Spa & Fitness's high ceilings and taxidermied tyrannosauruses for a lodge-like vibe.
By using products packed with organic ingredients, the staff at Vie de Bella Salon makes its menu of head-to-toe beauty treatments as healthy as a habit of running marathons. On the salon floor, stylists tame frizzy tresses with nontoxic hair-straightening treatments from Paul Brown Hawaii and add final touches to new cuts with Alterna styling products. They add vibrancy to hair by rendering highlights and single-process color with the Keune color line and add removable feather and multicolored hair extensions—ideal for special events or trying to get noticed in a crowd of peacock salesmen. Away from the salon floor, technicians bronze skin with organic airbrush tans, customizing the color to match each client and contouring bodies with blue-based organic solutions that last for 7–10 days. Manicures and spa pedicures with OPI polish round out the menu of treatments like the round edges manicurists file onto everything they own.
