Specializing in hair-removal techniques both old and new, the staff at Beautyworks ensures smoothness across the skin’s entire surface. Aestheticians call upon the ancient technique of threading to shape brows and remove upper-lip or sideburn stubble. Both men and women can stop in for a wax on areas including the arms, legs, and bikini line, or achieve the texture of a newborn coconut with a full-body wax. Aside from hair removal, the beauty specialists add flirtatious volume to winks with lash tinting, and clean and revitalize skin with organic facials.
Luna Massage's therapist sees her work as more than a means of physical or spiritual fulfillment. She sees it as a means of giving back to the community, of helping people attain their own private nirvana. Evidence of that mission can be seen in any of the services she performs, from private yoga sessions to herb-ball and Indian-rejuvenation massages. Most of the massage modalities take advantage of scented herbal oils, and all of them leave you feeling stronger, healthier, and more relaxed than a tranquilized sloth.
Guests may feel a sense of warmth when they stroll past the earthen-hued walls and kaleidoscopic flora of Inga's Skin and Body Care Salon.

Additionally, tinting services dye lashes and brows in clients’ favorite sports team’s colors. Patrons can also venture to the cosmetic utopia's small boutique to sift through a trove of candles, jewelry, and other goods.
Shantell’s treatments can simultaneously relax and re-energize the senses. The massage therapist spends her days rubbing lotions and oils into tense muscles and using Swedish, prenatal, and myofascial-release techniques. Her massages take place while clients relax on a treatment table or sit in an ergonomically designed chair.
