Your feet are soaking in a warm footbath while flower petals float on the surface of the water, giving off tropical fragrances. Or maybe you’re lying side by side with a loved one as you both relax to an aromatherapy foot scrub and full-body couples massage. Or perhaps you're getting your shoulders massaged as you rethink your decision to play Sisyphus in the town play.
These are just a few examples of the stress-relieving treatments you can experience at Su Massage Therapy & Chi Wellness Retreat, where therapists use both ancient and modern techniques with a singular goal: well being. They manage pain with Chinese herbal treatments and hot footbaths, as well as Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massages that induce feelings of deep relaxation and target sources of discomfort and tension.
Sue, the owner of Sunrise Hair Studio, brings 18 years of experience as an aesthetician to the treatment table. Along with a team of stylists and aestheticians, Sue delivers image-transforming services for every inch of skin and hair. In the salon, stylists whip up custom cuts and colors and employ the follicle-smoothing powers of Global Keratin’s formaldehyde-free hair-straightening treatment. Aestheticians use skin-friendly sugar and traditional waxes and nail techs pamper hands during chair-side manicures. Relaxing clients indulge in the beauty haven's charming garden area, a tranquil retreat where guests can enjoy refreshments while catching up on the latest celebrity gossip with the area's resident gnomes and traveling pack of pink flamingos.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and teeth-whitening treatments.
A regal lobby welcomes guests into Georgetown Electrolysis Skin Care, with swirled wallpaper accenting a corner fireplace, around which a chaise, an ottoman, and plush couches are situated. As they pass under a crystal-dripped chandelier and into private treatment rooms, guests will discover that the staff members who perform each service mirror the coziness of their confines. The spa’s specialties include deep-cleansing facials, massage, and body wraps that battle cellulite and unwanted inches. Staff members also use electrolysis and laser hair removal to permanently oust unwanted fuzz from the body, as well as from sheep who plan to retire to the Caribbean.
A month of unlimited tanning can raise the head-turn count to a level usually reserved for tennis spectatorship. Lounge in one of Body Rays' level-one beds, equipped with 32 beauty lamps to boost color in as little as 8–10 minutes. Each bed is housed in a private room nestled in the rear of a brilliantly lit loft space as surprisingly spacious as Zack and A.C.'s freshman dorm room.
Step into the tranquil, vine-filled space at Solarus and treat damaged strands to a total renewal with a restorative holistic hair and scalp treatment, including a soothing 30-minute shoulder, neck, and scalp massage. Use the facial option for a refreshing European facial, the mani-pedi option for a basic finger-shingle and toe-shell treatment, or apply the value toward upgraded facial or nail services. You'll leave Solarus relaxed and ready to tackle unexpected iguana uprisings.
