When Rosanne Balsom started emOcean, it was little more than a murky saltwater pool. Today, that crystal-clear swimming hole is the focal point among myriad spa and health services, ranging from massage and cosmetics to physiotherapy and podiatry. Adjacent to glass-fronted infrared saunas, aromatherapy steam showers reinvigorate the senses with warm mist, revitalizing scents, and the lilting giggles of complimentary fairies. Whether feeding guests or powdering recently exfoliated cheeks, the spa’s team keeps an eye on sustainability, using organic cotton robes, locally sourced Laughing Whale Coffee, and soy-based body scrubs.
The CAS Spa & Salon combines professional product lines with the efforts of a dedicated team that includes a registered nurse, a registered massage therapist, and a hair stylist with more than 35 years in the field. Its comprehensive menu of services trims and polishes clients from head to toe, with options including haircuts and color, facials, Botox and Juvederm treatments, mani-pedis, and waxing services using both hard and soft formulas. For more permanent hair removal, a registered nurse performs follicle-zapping treatments with a medical-grade laser that produce perpetually smooth results. The CAS elevates its treatments with professional potions, such as hair products from Redken and nail polishes from SpaRitual and Zoya. The facility also infuses epidermises with formulas from its proprietary skincare line, which, like making a baby crawl laps around the backyard, aims to induce a youthful glow.
