InVitalize Medi Spa is a full-service place of pampering, chock-full of talented and friendly technicians who will coddle keratin until it's as stress-free as a fish in water wings. The classic manicure starts out with a warm hand soak followed by cuticle and nail shaping and a soothing massage, and the pedicure begins by submerging flippers in a whirlpool bath. Next, an expert in foot aesthetics and comfort will care for your toe cuticles, shape and buff your nails, exfoliate your hard-working heels, and drive out digit tension during a moisturizing foot massage. Both services are finished with fresh coats of shiny polish and a complete reading of The Salon, a 2005 feature-length film starring Vivica A. Fox.
Legacy Salon and Day Spa's facial services smooth over epidermal erosion and melt away the weathered granite of gargoyle mugs to reveal the cherubic visages underneath. Yank out the roots of blackhead radishes with an acne-clearing facial ($80), or go from Two-Face to Catwoman with a pigment balancing facial ($75). A practiced technician stands at the ready to arm male and female kissers with anti-aging ameliorants or vitamin-infused serums, and any facial can be upgraded to a skin-buffing microdermabrasion treatment (a $125 value) for an additional $25.
Nationally licensed massage therapist Jim De Fazio and his team help relieve pain and stress with holistic massage treatments. Massage boasts a bevy of benefits such as alleviating migraines, increasing circulation, and improving the range of motion necessary to defeat contortionists in Twister. Multiple modalities, which include deep tissue, acupressure, and myofascial release, allow each guest to seek out tailored massages that address their individual discomforts and specific muscle cramps. All knead-a-thons focus on holistic solutions to painful problems, unlike doctors that stomp on their patients' toes to distract them from other injuries.
Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
Hair & Body Solutions gives clients a boost of confidence by revitalizing and updating their look through gentle spa treatments. The trained staff, with a combined 40 years of experience, boasts waxing solutions for typical and sensitive-skin types alike. Browologists can do a simple cleanup over the above-eye arches or swoop in for a full-on furrowed remix. Post-waxing, aestheticians apply Dermalogica UltraCalming skincare products, providing a buttery-smooth sensation previously known only to hand-churned dairy products and baby elephants who haven't yet wrinkled. Sit back in the salon's sophisticated, warm atmosphere and allow the staff to uproot the least favorite follicles from all notoriously needy pores.
Chiropractic is based on holistic investigations into patients' heath, searching out underlying causes of sickness rather than simply treating symptoms. Doctor of Chiropractic Richard Hruby is a staunch advocate of this whole-body approach, bringing a range of therapeutic services to bear on patrons' health complaints. In addition to spine-adjusting treatments, the center also provides relaxing massage and acupuncture that realigns energy flow and punctures the tiny subdermal balloons that keep making you float.
