Silverado Point Spa and Salons owes its every open hour to owner Connie Kotlowski and a team of smiling stylists, cosmetologists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. An authorized Bare Escentuals dealer, the spa tends to patrons' frames with nourishing body wraps and beautifies façades with mineral makeup. Five styles of massage erase tension from torsos and uneasy mannequins as soft lighting illuminates muted walls and understated yet elegant décor, enhancing the air of tranquility and restfulness. Joining the salon and spa are a tanning parlor with both traditional and spray-tanning options, and a coffee house featuring specialty drinks, sandwiches, a drive-thru and free WiFi.
As an Aveda salon, A-Glo brings beauty back to nature with professional salon products based on floral and plant essences. Soothe winter-weary mugs with a personalized Elemental Nature facial. A-Glo's skincare sages concoct epidermal elixirs to address the specific skincare issues of each client, tweaking treatments to soothe sensitive skin, moisturize dry and damaged tissue, clear oily or acne-prone countenances, and reduce the signs of aging. The one-hour treatment also includes tranquil aromatherapy, optional extractions, and a post-facial makeup touch-up.
When Jennifer Martinez created the A'staisora Holistic Wellness Studio, she wanted to create a business that held beauty and well-being in equal esteem. In doing so, she created a menu of treatments for men and women that tackle everything from expanding range of motion to relieving emotional stress. Her facial and body treatments call upon A'staisrora Savon & Spa products, which use petroleum-free ingredients from sustainable farms or that are organically grown or harvested wild.
Angelina Kim of Serenity Wellness Spa is a woman with many talents. She is a licensed acupuncture professional, massage therapist, and aesthetician who treats clients with a menu of relaxing and wellness-inducing treatments. Angelina uses acupuncture to treat ailments such as headaches, depression, and severe pain. With an arsenal of nine different massage modalities, she can knead away tension and stress with Swedish, shiatsu, sports, and hot-stone massages. She also offers professional skincare treatments and waxing services to remove unwanted hair or shape the unsightly, inexplicable mustaches that grow above the eyes.
Rather than devote itself entirely to healthy movement or meditative rest, New Self Renewal Center represents both sides of the spectrum. On one side, its fitness area hosts small-group classes ranging from energized boot-camp and Zumba routines to KettleCore, whose strengthening swings were featured in Brava magazine. Students can even order classes from the fitness menu, scheduling sessions of athletic stretching or core work at times that work for them. Personal trainers and a certified wellness practitioner are also on hand to develop custom programs.
Because the center's philosophy is one of balance, it counteracts the gym's kinetic offerings with a spa. There, massage therapists knead away aches, administering add-ons of aromatherapy and moisturizing shea butter, and nail technicians beautify fingertips with signature mani-pedis. The onsite café makes for another replenishing stop between workouts or paraffin dips—its menu includes sandwiches, salads, smoothies, and a variety of housemade items such as hummus and granola.
As a complement to its wide spectrum of amenities and a symbol of its family focus, the center also provides childcare services. Youngsters can draw on the chalkboard wall of the Kid Corner while their parents exercise or relax. At lunchtime, the corner's designated snacking space enables adults to eat with their kids and explain that cutting off sandwich crusts doesn't actually hurt the sandwiches.
Though Miracles' quirky and diversely talented staff of stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians aims to lift patrons' spirits with beauty transformations, their work did not wholly inspire the salon's name—the beauty sanctuary's original location was inside an old church. Owner Kendalia Edelman has since expanded her business into a larger location, enabling her to add an area for laser treatments that target everything from excess hair to leg veins. She also found space for Little Miracles, a separate salon where kids up to age 9 can get haircuts with supervision from parents and invisible friends moonlighting as style consultants.
