The technicians at Bloom Salon & Body Spa present clients with noninvasive alternatives to cosmetic surgery. Instead of liposuction, they melt away inches with LipoLaser treatments. Instead of face-lifts, they tighten the skin naturally by stimulating the muscles underneath with MicroCurrent treatments. Since these techniques keep the scalpel in the drawer, they spare clients the long recovery periods required after more taxing options, such as surgery or witchcraft.
In addition to their technological beauty techniques, the team also augments appearances and pampers patrons with facials and a full menu of hair services. Six types of massages scold away stress with relaxation tools such as hot stones and grapefruit foot scrubs.
Dr. Michael Samuel and Dr. Steve Samuel at Body Allure refine the human form with a three-pronged approach. Their diet programs help reduce cravings and chase away pounds, and their wellness programs recalibrate unbalanced hormone levels and address the needs of the adrenal glands. Among their beauty treatments, fat-fighting injections help patients fit into their most revealing lederhosen, and SmoothShapes lasers diminish the appearance of cellulite.
Clients may see immediate results after one session, though The Oral and Facial Surgery Center of Kentucky recommends between 6 and 10 treatments for optimal results. Clients may purchase up to two Groupons to call for fuzz-busting reinforcements on the same treatment area or try to conquer a whole new region. The Gemini laser is only effective on darker-pigmented hair.
Step into the soothing oasis of Hair & Body Spa and allow an expert massage therapist to untie knotted muscles and knead stress to a smooth loaf, ready to replace any worn-out couch cushion. Before your custom massage commences, a heavenly hydrotherapy bath marinates muscles in a water tub, which can be beneficial for arthritis or improving joint flexibility. Then choose from Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, trigger-point, hot-stone, or pre-natal techniques for your personalized massage. A classic Swedish uses long, connective strokes to improve blood flow and muscular relaxation while relieving tension, whereas reflexology applies pressure to specific points on the hands and feet, each with an exclusive connection to a body part and its function. The pre-natal massage alleviates pelvic and spinal pain while reducing swelling, tricking your baby into thinking he or she is bungee jumping from a waterfall during birth.
"[I like] giving my clients beautiful, healthy, stylish hair they can be proud of," says Angela Tuck, when asked about her favorite part of her job. One of seven talented stylists at The Villa Day Spa & Salon, she specializes in complicated chemical treatments, such as the Keratin Complex hair-smoothing service. Over the course of two to two-and-a-half hours, she deliberately banishes frizz and removes kinks from hair, leaving it glossy and manageable for up to five months.
Though the treatment takes some time, the soothing decor at The Villa Day Spa & Salon makes the wait more bearable. Warmly lit hallways lead away from the sunny salon to specialized rooms, such as the hydrotherapy soak room where a jacuzzi-like pool sits nestled between walls painted with seaside murals. The establishment even contains an old-fashioned steam sauna with fragrant wood paneling, giving patrons a private space where they can relax and cook vegetables simultaneously.

The Potter’s Hand offers a choice of three relaxing massage modalities in sessions tailored to each client's dorsal needs. Biotone lotion and oil are used during Swedish massages, and deeper, thoughtful steps are taken during deep-tissue sessions that focus on client comfort. Pregnant women who are past their first trimester can enjoy the benefits of the prenatal massage, which may include relief of backaches, reduced swelling, or a bonus baby. After sessions, freshly massaged physiques enjoy a respite from aches and pains, improved posture, and boosted lymphatic flow.
