Spartas infuses serenity into peaceful patrons with relaxing, therapeutic treatments. Nullify nagging knots and kinks in bone-and-muscle storage devices by appeasing them with the soothing strokes of a massage ($35) instead of rubbing them with a homemade apple pie. The detoxifying aromatherapy steam ($10) cleanses dirt, grime, and oil from the pores while softening the skin. A hand paraffin treatment ($15) exfoliates dead skin cells from hardworking phalanges with the Beauticontrol instant manicure and softens appendage ends with a repair cream. Multiple layers of paraffin are then applied to make hands silky smooth and ready for glove fittings or afternoons spent shaving coconuts.
At Little Diva Day Spa, little ladies ages 2–13 get their first taste of primping and pampering fit for royalty. During meticulous manicures, delicate digits are gently scrubbed before nails get lacquered ($5) or decorated with artful designs ($10). Pedicures treat tiny feet to a foot scrub and soak, before polishing toes ($10). Sweethearts embrace their true nature with cupcake facials of pink or chocolate frosting, with a gluten-free option for sensitive skin ($10). The red-carpet readying process is completed with glitter eye makeup ($5) and hand-painted glitter tattoos ($5), so lasses can coordinate with their tiaras or Dora the Explorer backpacks.
Coventina—Erie's largest, most exclusive spa—beautifies bodies and creates comelier countenances with a variety of soothing services. Wrap yourself in luxury—and linens—with the herbal body wrap ($50), a de-stressing full-body wrap, where herb-infused linens help stimulate circulation, eliminate toxins, heal sore muscles, and make noses think there's Thanksgiving stuffing nearby. A paraffin wrap ($55) uses the wonders of wax to soften and moisturize winter-hardened body rind. For a more specific sprucing up, the Bioelements facial ($55) is personalized to each patient's complexion, using a combination of deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, and facial serums to correct impish imperfections. Coventina also performs a variety of manicures, pedicures, and massages amid the serene environment of its seven acres of wooded property.

Skilled aestheticians at Nurturing by Nature Day Spa take a holistic approach to beauty with organic, soothing manicures and pedicures. Energizing lemongrass oil anoints fingertips as an aesthetician buffs nails to a natural smoothness. Unruly cuticles get a trim while moisturizing serums penetrate calluses to soften hands. During the organic pedicure, clients can relax in a water-jet pedicure chair while aestheticians remove calluses and spruce cuticles. The one-hour mini mani-pedi concludes with an application of Zoya polish, and the two-hour signature mani-pedi continues with an exfoliating scrub to remove dead skin cells and illuminate brighter, healthier skin. During signature treatments, aestheticians massage hands, feet, and lower legs to relax the muscles before brightening digits with a slick nail colour that's vivid but won't cause fingers to blind bowls of popcorn.
