The team at Advanced Skin Care & More soothes body and mind with a synergy of ancient techniques and modern technology. Aestheticians with medical or paramedical training precede every facial with a skin analysis and black-light screening, which can detect skin conditions or milk mustaches. After determining the client's unique skincare needs, an aesthetician cleanses and exfoliates with natural and organic products. Some treatments combat signs of aging with infrared or intense pulsed light, microcurrents, and ultrasound. Aside from facials, the day spa offers massage modalities that range from deep tissue to champissage, an Ayurvedic form of head massage that stimulates the scalp and upper body to increase circulation and the ability to wiggle each ear independently.
More than 150 total years of experience lend steadiness to the shears of Grooming Lounge Barber Spa's barber-stylists, who create stylish cuts that continue to look sharp as they grow out. Combining traditional barber styling techniques with a tropical, Tommy Bahama theme, the shop creates a relaxing atmosphere for men that includes flat-screen TVs and a beverage bar. In addition to cut and color treatments for both men and women, Grooming Lounge offers relaxation, deep tissue, and hot stone massages, which release tension from the body brought on by each hair's absolute terror at finally facing down a pair of scissors.
The aesthetic experts at Marjon the Salon prepare guests for everyday elegance or nights on the town with a passel of beauty services. To kick off either package, the staff shapes, buffs, and paints nails before relaxing hands and arms with a gentle massage, completing the regular manicure. Then, the spa pedicure's sea-rock soak infuses feet with moisture and the ability to detect incoming soccer balls via whale sonar. After techs buff and polish toenails, an exfoliation, sea-salt marine mask, and hydrating cream refresh and smooth skin on lower limbs.
Pilates Plus has a trio of studios, and each serves a specific purpose. The first is outfitted with Pilates Reformer machines, atop which students whittle their core muscles and increase their flexibility. The second has ample space for the other fitness classes on the gym's schedule: dance-inspired Zumba, kickboxing, mat Pilates, and Booty Barre, which coalesces dance, yoga, and Pilates. The third studio opens for massage and personal-training clients.
The aestheticians at Mai Beauty Nail & Hair Salon transform dilapidated finger shingles into immaculate, polished nails in spa mani-pedis. Technicians soak digits in warm water and remove lingering polish to prepare them for nail trimming, buffing, and nude performances in avant-garde puppet theaters. Everyday burdens evaporate under targeted pressure as a massage leaves feet swathed in lotion and feelings of contentment. After being de-callused and swaddled in a hot towel, feet may prove too smooth to stay inside any shoes that haven't been glued on. Finally, digits don polish coats in the color of their choice, while nails that select the second option acquire a long-lasting Shellac sheen.

In the comfort of his private studio, clients can request his signature cranial release techniques for central nervous system relief, or alleviate lower-layer aches with deep-tissue pressure or neuromuscular bodywork.
A licensed cosmetologist and licensed tattoo artist, Nancy Olevson draws on both her specialties in her work as a permanent makeup artist. Her natural attention to detail helps her to apply precise strokes of pigment to her clients' eyes, brows, and lips, where they'll stay put through exercising, swimming, showering, and sleeping. Beyond catering to on-the-go women looking to streamline their morning makeup routines, Nancy often extends her camouflaging abilities to help those with scars, men and women with alopecia, and spiders, who typically spend several hours a day lining each of their eight eyes.
