Natural Oasis: A William Edge Aveda Spa is an Aveda-concept spa fueled by the brand’s botanically inspired products. Licensed massage therapists administer the 75-minute elemental nature massage, which relies on a custom blend of Aveda aromas and a variety of massage styles to target sore muscles as effectively as a laser sight on a glove targets a high-five partner. A questionnaire precedes the elemental nature facial so that aestheticians can cosset face plates in scents and products selected according to the client's preferences and beauty needs.
The professional stress-extractors at Reneaux can and will mollify your muscles with a variety of massage techniques.

The vigorous technique is customized to complement each client's athletic-training regimen.

Eleven years ago, fellow massage students Terrie and Bret Lonow watched the rising sun from the back of Bret's pick-up truck, sipping coffee and imagining a future together in business. Today, the friendship has blossomed into a marriage and the dream into a reality. The pair of therapists helm Massage Way, where they employ flowing strokes, targeted pressure, and hydrating oils or lotions to fend off the physical, mental, and spiritual manifestations of stress—such as soreness and the development of a third brain lobe to house surplus worries. Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, and reflexology modalities ease pain and cultivate relaxation in a warm, serene room with quiet music.
