Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
At Petite Hair & Nails, a staff of talented aestheticians, nail technicians, and makeup artists have a passion for hair and nail care. They come together to pamper from head-to-toe by offering their varied lineup of salon and spa services with quality products from brands such as Keracure, Chi, OPI, and Paul Mitchell. The salon also offers other services such as massages and specialty permanent makeup.
The dedicated staff of Beauty Chateau Med Spa Salon use treatments to help clients look and feel their best. Signs of aging ranging from sun spots to wrinkles can be combatted with IPL photo-rejuvenation treatments, crystal microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Spa treatments such as body wraps and scrubs are enhanced with oils, Dead Sea salt, and therapeutic herbs. Mani-pedis can be augmented with paraffin treatments and hydrating masks. Beauty Chateau even provides hairstyling services, such as Brazilian blowouts and feather extensions.
Owner Yavonda Van Dyke––a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist––is also a certified educator who, when not busy keeping her staff abreast of the latest practices and styles, waxes beautific to the public during advanced-education classes. Visitors stepping into her full-service salon are greeted by cosmetologists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and manicurists, who work side by side to pamper bodies from fingertip to fascia. After arising from a full body Swedish or deep-tissue massage, clients can hop into the styling chair to relax stressed strands with Japanese hair straightening or an intense conditioning treatment. Old nail polish is swiftly swapped out for French tips or artificial overlays during mani-pedis that may be made extra indulgent with skin-softening paraffin treatments, while facials for ladies, gents, and teens help rekindle glowing complexions by removing dirt, oil, and stuck Halloween masks.
Before opening his salon and spa in 2001, owner and lead stylist James Barrow traveled far and wide to perfect his aesthetic craft at the Bumble and bumble University, Vidal Sassoon, and in Toni&Guy workshops. With skills captured at each institution and power taken by defeating Highlanders in single combat, he mastered the product knowledge necessary to turn his salon into a Bumble and bumble–exclusive venue. Barrow leads a team of stylists who cut, color, and texturize hair, retexture skin through facials and waxing services, and tend to aches and tension with massage.

- The most relaxing hour I have ever experienced! The setting is so calm and serene, I had a hard time staying awake.

I was wearing a wrist brace when I arrived, and within a very short time at the hands of Vonda, the pain subsided. – no1chauffeur, Google Maps
