Vu's aestheticians indulge clients with an array of body-beautification services. Treat cheeks to an express facial, a custom 25-minute procedure designed to rejuvenate all skin types, whether oily, sensitive, or carved from a large pumpkin. During the speedy treatment, faces blossom thanks to a deep cleansing and light exfoliation, and a peel and treatment mask reinvigorate surfaces. Afterward, faces radiate with a healthy glow, ready to dazzle passersby or illuminate spelunking expeditions. Patrons can show off posttreatment expressions with a visit to Vu Bistro—the spa's adjoining restaurant—which offers an upscale dining experience with panoramic views of the Mesa.
The EO in EO2 Wellness Spa & Oxygen Bar’s name stands for Energy Oasis, which hints at the spa's purpose: healing people through energy. In its clean, comforting environment, therapists work to balance minds and bodies by cleansing clients of toxins, strengthening their musculoskeletal systems, and relieving their stress during a range of treatments. Whole-body vibration and far-infrared massage beds with jade rollers use energy and motion to relax and tone muscles, whereas reflexology and shiatsu foot massage offer a more human touch. At the oxygen bar, visitors inhale concentrated, oxygen-enriched air that produces a natural high as it works to purify the lungs and bloodstream and fan the inner wood-burning furnace that keeps each of us alive.
At each of HealthSource Chiropractic's hundreds of locations throughout the country, chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and physical therapists work together to treat and prevent chronic aches and pains. By combining chiropractic adjustments with strengthening therapy in a technique the center dubs "progressive rehab," specialists can both ease pain and take steps to ensure it doesn't return. This body-care methodology also incorporates whole-body wellness, which focuses on prevention of pain and maintaining a nutritious lifestyle. Therapists not only assist clients in achieving optimal health, but also tend to back pain, neck pain headache, sciatica, fibromyalgia and other common concerns.
Heidi Lamar didn't know much about spas when she first purchased Spa Lamar. As she explained to reporters from Skin Inc., "not coming from a spa background, there were things I didn't know I couldn't do." Unhindered by industry conventions or previously fixed ideas, Heidi set about filling her 14,000-square-foot spa with innovative amenities—from a luxurious waterfall-fed pool to an onsite yoga and dance studio. She also cultivates locals instead of the typical resort crowd, banishing cacti from the decor in favor of a Caribbean-style ambiance that, as she told the Arizona Republic, caters to those who already live in Arizona and want to get away to a tropical island. Today, her media-lauded spa is the largest privately owned spa in Scottsdale and is frequented by locals, including members of the Phoenix Suns Dancers.
Before treatments that include massages, acupuncture, mani-pedis, and facials, guests garbed in fluffy complimentary robes duck into the steam room. They sample wholesome lunches and fruit plates from the tropical tea bar and relax in the sauna while waiting for a haircut or warm algae wrap. Sunbathers float around the pool on loungers, whereas others simmer in a bubbling whirlpool. Unlike many traditional spas, Spa Lamar is completely coed, making it an ideal place for couples that are on a first date or permanently trapped together inside a horse costume with a broken zipper.
Occasionally, Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa moonlights as a studio. Sometimes camera-toting members of the media stop by to check out this season’s trends or new hair products. Other times, models strut or flutter from imaginary wind gusts during Urban Tribe and other fashion photo shoots. Perhaps most importantly, Mood Swings periodic studio space hosts educational seminars for its talented team of stylists, who learn advanced tips in coloring and other techniques from Aveda professional instructors.
This commitment to the art and science of hair justifies Arizona Foothills magazine selecting Mood Swings Aveda Salon and Skin Spa as its best salon of 2011. The praise coincides with that from AZCentral.com, which named Mood Swings Best Trendy Salon for “translating cool, avant-garde styles into wearable, everyday looks.” Stylists craft these looks with natural, plant-based products from Aveda, and supplement the service with pampering that can include a complimentary scalp massage, hand facial, and finishing touches to clients’ makeup. A comprehensive services menu treats the entire body, ranging from natural skin products that rejuvenate complexions to pedicures that soothe feet with a dual-jet therapeutic whirlpool after unsuccessful attempts to walk barefoot across a hot charcoal grill.
