Slate Creek Center doesn't limit its attention to surface beauty. Although a team of aestheticians can add a smoldering flair to glances with pharmaceutical-grade Novalash extensions, or smooth skin with facials and scrubs, the rest of the staff delves much deeper. In keeping with Slate Creek Center's mission to instill a holistic sense of well-being, trainers condition muscles and melt away fat with fitness classes. Massage therapists wait in the wings to mollify overworked tendons. Traditional therapists are even available to focus on the mind, helping patrons talk through their worries or by employing techniques such as hypnosis.
The space itself further engenders a sense of whole-body calm. A gentle soundtrack of classical music and the scents of aromatherapy emanate throughout. An infrared sauna warms the body from its core out, relieving pain and melting undigested snow-cones. An on-site boutique lets outgoing guests carry this peace home with hand-picked cosmeceutical products by makers such as Eminence and Jane Iredale.
Guests meander into Fit Physique Fitness Center’s open two-storied gym before working up a sweat on the track that encircles the balcony, or by hauling around free weights. After self-driven workouts, they can head up to the expansive, wood-floored studio for Zumba, yoga, or tae kwon do classes, or out onto the 15-station outdoor obstacle course where they’ll scramble up rope ladders and hoist themselves up and over wood-slatted walls. Children can cavort on the obstacle courses during birthday parties when they aren’t being watched, entertained, or taught to fill out individual income-tax returns in the onsite kid-sitting area.
