Artwork, cozy furnishings, and elegant wire dress forms dot the French-chateau-style interior of Sachet Salon and Spa, where professional beautifiers revitalize locks, smoothen skin, and sculpt nails. Hair artisans can snip, color, and arm-wrestle each strand of hair until it forms a stylish coif that complements its owner's facial features. Sighs of relaxation fill a private pedicure room where the staff trims nails and sheathes digits in Shellac gel that can last up to 14 days or artful designs using regular polish. The master aestheticians can also render skin as smooth and youthful looking as a just-hatched nesting doll with facials, waxing, and hand-administered spray tans.
For Cindy Howell, every massage calls for a different approach. That's why the licensed massage therapist draws upon five modalities at Mama Mia Family Massage, paying close attention to what every body needs. Of course, she also happily sticks to one style when necessary, whether kneading muscles with gentle Swedish strokes or incorporating elements of reflexology and meditation into Thai yoga massages. Her sessions result in myriad benefits, including improved circulation, a stronger immune system, and relief from general aches and anxieties.

Hot towel shaves and sports mani-pedis round out the treatments in this lavish club atmosphere.
Though their methods may seem futuristic, Rejuva-You is old fashioned when it comes to caring for clients. Technicians specialize in ultrasonic fat reduction to trim silhouettes and radio frequency skin-tightening used on the face and body. A few strategic passes of these wands can firm skin, soften the appearance of stretch marks, or make a top hat look better by conjuring a rabbit. And with office hours six days a week, the staff can accommodate busy schedules.
Inside a private treatment room, licensed massage therapist Alexandria consults with clients before administering her signature Swedish, deep-tissue, or Hawaiian lomilomi massages. They talk about the clients' specific issues, from chronic pain to tense muscles. Based on that information, Alexandria customizes a massage that integrates elements from any of these modalities?even specialized techniques, such as craniosacral balancing and prenatal massage.
The Le Belle Visage Day Spa staff utilizes the latest technology and naturally derived products to care for skin. They reveal fresher faces with several exfoliating procedures, including diamond-tip microdermabrasion, the ultrasonic DermaSound system, and a variety of chemical and enzyme peels. The staff carefully analyzes visages to recommend appropriate formulas from the Éminence organic skincare line, whose fruit-based and herbal ingredients are manually harvested at a solar- and wind-powered farm in Hungary.
Among the spa's 12 types of facials, the Quatre Mains (four hands) treatment provides an ideal combination of cleansing and relaxation: two hands perform a customized European facial and shadow-puppet version of The English Patient while two hands simultaneously massage the legs, feet, arms, and hands. Wood floors and antique-style furniture give the space an intimate and homelike ambiance.
