The service menu at Bliss Organic Skin Care & Boutique is ripe with natural ingredients. A brightening facial has goji berries and yogurt, while an anti-aging treatment moisturizes skin with raspberry, peach, and hibiscus. The body rituals integrate more than 45 organic herbs in each, including a pineapple wrap that gets help repairing damaged skin from lavender and geranium oils. Nufree hair removal uses no animal products (that includes wax), though clients also have the option of laser hair removal.
At Club 7 Fitness, members cap an energizing spinning class or sprint round the indoor track with a quick soak in the whirlpool and a sweet treat from the juice bar. The 50,000 square foot club showers patrons with amenities including a spacious cardio deck, full service tanning salon, and chiropractic services. Members sharpen their swing at the racquetball courts, learn to roundhouse kick through tae kwon do classes, or stop by a SPARQ class for sports-specific training to enhance speed, power, and agility.
George and Dorothy Heavilin established House of Heavilin Beauty College in 1953. Since then, the school has prided itself on graduating talented professionals who continually land in esteemed positions across the country. Instead of practicing on crash-test dummies, though, students perfect their craft while providing salon services for customers. Under the expert eyes of the college's educators, budding cosmetologists and aestheticians administer facials, apply makeup, cut and style hair, and conduct various waxing services.
In the lobby of Spa 7, there is a large painting of a birdcage?but the cage is empty. Instead, the bird perches majestically at the cage's pointed top, poised as if for immediate flight. The image suits owner Stacey Rupe's philosophy well; she believes that the quest for outer beauty and emotional freedom starts when the body is liberated from the toxins and stress it keeps trapped inside. From colon hydrotherapy to massage, the Spa 7 team uses interior healing as a catalyst to create feelings of confidence and inner well-being that radiate outward. Stacey's staff of aestheticians then step forward to enhance the physical transformation externally with a slate of facials and other body treatments that renew skin with time-tested beautifying ingredients such as seaweed, essential oils, and Burt Reynolds's mustache hairs. Spa7's permanent makeup artist uses a steady hand to apply hypo-allergenic pigments to lashes, eyebrows, lips, and to the lining of the eye.
