LaVida Massage believes massages should be available to everyone. They back up this belief not only by offering a wide range of techniques—athletes, mothers-to-be, and office workers alike can find a modality to suit them—but also by making the massage process easy. Each of their massage sessions last 60 minutes: the middle 50 minutes are reserved for the massage itself, and the last five minutes allow time for redressing. The five minutes that precede every service go toward a consultation where clients can discuss individual concerns, such as neck tension from leaning over a computer keyboard or foot soreness from driving their car like the Flintstones.
Stepping into Hideaway Massage is like stepping into a seaside resort at dusk. Candlelight flickers against framed prints of starfish, seahorses, and nautical maps hung on blue and sand-colored walls while tinkling chandeliers hang above heated massage tables. Inside a private single suite, a fireplace crackles, its light casting a warm glow and keeping stressed-out Santas from stopping by uninvited. Within this relaxation haven, seven nationally certified massage therapists drape their clients with sheets as they unfurl more than 10 varieties of massage, employing everything from Swedish strokes to hot stones. Aromatherapy oils may fill the senses and heated towels may help ease clients' transition into a calm state of bliss, but either way, as their muscles unknot they can stay hydrated with complimentary spring water. Therapists also apply many of the same treatments to pairs during couples massages and soothe skin and muscles with add-ons such as seaweed body wraps, foot scrubs, and head massages.
Though crystal chandeliers, spiraling granite countertops, and glass waterfalls lend Four Seasons Salon & Spa an elegant air, its true indulgences are reserved for its pampered clientele. Licensed staffers administer a potpourri of services ranging from artificial nail enhancements to manicures and pedicures with hot stone massages. They also offer relaxing rubs in the form of deep tissue, Swedish, and lava stone, a relaxing alternative to leaning against an active volcano.
Over in the salon, stylists tint brows, enrich eyelashes with extensions, and rejuvenate dos with perms or thermal straightening. Along with restyling hair, staffers can remove unwanted portions of it with waxing services and laser removal procedures. In addition to everyday pampering, Four Seasons' staff devises extra soothing and beautifying treatments for special occasions such as proms, weddings, and anniversaries.

Beyond common massage modalities, the therapists can soothe weary clients with a variety of specialized techniques.

The staff can also enhance treatments with stress-alleviating add-ons, including cupping therapy, body scrubs, and hot stones chiseled from the warm, sunburned foreheads of Mount Rushmore.
