Stepping into Nadwa Hair Spa is almost like stepping onto a movie set for a futuristic film: bright overhead lights shine across metallic accents and row upon row of high-tech hair-dryers and styling gadgets. Inside this innovative space, owner and master stylist Nadwa Yono puts forth her training from the renowned Trevor Sorbie of London to pamper and style both men and women. The stylist and her crew sling products from Pureology, Aquage, and Morrocanoil as they snip and color locks or weave extensions, wigs, or second faces into hair. Aestheticians and massage therapists set up camp in secluded mint-hued rooms, where they wax away unwanted fuzz, tailor facials to treat acne, aging, or sun-damaged skin, and tenderize sore muscles with deep-tissue and hot-stone massages.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Seasoned aestheticians, makeup technicians, and licensed massage therapists can be found throughout the tranquil halls of L'Aryola Salon and European Spa. The building's simple earth tones and abstract artwork melt into the background as clients slip into a state of calm brought on by customized facials, some including serums with natural vitamins and plants. Massages and body wraps soothe exteriors in rooms that are illuminated by candlelight and full of intriguing aromas, much like an apothecary who has been set on fire. Permanent-makeup sessions add pigments that can augment natural features for years to come.
Each LaVida Massage location is a comfortable place that invites people of all ages, genders, and shoe sizes to unwind and improve their emotional, physical, and immiscible well-beings. During a 60-minute deep tissue massage session, one of LaVida’s skilled deck hands will untangle back knots by applying firm pressure to the deepest layers of soft tissue. Targeting specific muscle groups causes concentrated pain and soreness relief. If your face rather than your muscles are on your mind, opt for the LaVida facial. This therapeutic treatment reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives dermises a deep cleaning.
Amazing Skin by Nina Maria draws from the 5,000-year-old practice of Ayurveda to make skin look way younger than the practice itself. With the goal of balancing the elements present in the world as well as the body and skin, Nina Maria executes 11-step treatments that cover the spectrum of skin health, from cleansing to toning to moisturizing. There are four distinct treatments offered, each with goals such as brightening the skin or removing signs of stress and wear-and-tear. In addition to skin nourishment, the treatments also include aromatherapy, hot stones, and facial massages.
Ayurveda, a system of medicine that originated in India more than 5,000 years ago, believes that individuals are unique and need to have health treatments tailored specifically to them. Beayurvedic's practitioner, Beena, relies on mind-body assessments—a combination of health-history questions and pulse readings—to determine which treatments are needed. Once clients know their dosha, or constitution type, they can learn which foods will best fuel their bodies, which herbal supplements to take, and which stress-management techniques are best for them. They can also learn how to care for their skin and rid their bodies of toxins via detoxification therapy on subsequent visits.
