The skilled massage therapists at Hyde Park Body Works rub radiance and vigor into tired and tense bodies with stress-busting spa treatments. The chocolate body polish exfoliates customers for a full hour, its intoxicatingly creamy scent inspiring relaxation and daydreams about backstroking in a giant chocolate fondue fountain. A professional pamperer gently polishes away dryness and impurities, leaving skin as hydrated and smooth as a freshly watered stairwell. After a luxurious shower, patrons enjoy a rich body-butter massage to seal in moisture and protect the newly exfoliated epidermis from harsh wind, itchy sweaters, and tickle fights with Johnny Sandpaperhands.

With hairstylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians joining the nail technicians on staff, The Nail Spot Spa & Lounge has established itself as a comprehensive spa whose scope extends far beyond fingers and toes. Nail technicians administer subtle mani-pedis or paint ornate designs, including animal prints, modified french tips, shimmering marble patterns, and jewel-centered flowers. Beneath billowing curtains, a spread of crimson and gold throw pillows line a cushioned recess, from which clients dangle their feet in baths filled with river stones for solo and couples pedicures. The baths are built into platforms inlaid with mosaic tiles, their claw feet lost throughout the years of their species’s evolution. In the hairstyling room, periwinkle walls and a black-and-white portrait of Audrey Hepburn offer a cool, crisp contrast to the warm scarlet-hued nail area.
Angela Romine, Enliven Nailcare and Massage's resident massage therapist, graduated magna cum laude from Antonelli College in 2007. Since joining the spa, she has contributed her talents toward helping clients live with less pain. Just outside her private massage room, a sunlit studio plays host to mani-pedis and cosmetic treatments. A wall with giant floral designs sets the backdrop for two richly padded pedicure chairs, and hardwood floors provide a slick surface for wheeled manicure chairs and Rosey the robot maid. Overall, the space has a nature-inspired aesthetic, with wicker furnishings and organic decorations bearing various shades of green.
It’s easy to misread Jenna Giltz’s last name as “Glitz.” It wouldn’t be an entirely inappropriate misnomer, considering Jenna’s reputation for adding glitz and glamour to her clients’ looks with stylish cuts and coloring treatments. To keep hair healthy and beautiful, she conditions with professional Redken and Pureology products. Hairstyling isn’t the only trick in Jenna’s book, however. She also performs mani-pedis, shaping nails and decorating them with vibrant designs that make counting to 10 far more exciting.
Tiffany, the certified manicurist and aesthetician at Beautiful Feet Begins With Me, works with a deep sense of purpose. She has a great passion for her work, and that passion manifests itself in her methodology for nailcare. She uses high-quality organic or OPI products during exfoliating sugar scrubs, and many of her services involve soaks to hydrate skin or massages to help muscles unwind. She also uses sanitizers to make sure everything is clean, just like the FCC does for infomercials.
