Licensed massage therapist Mona Schaefer wants to figure out what massage techniques work best for each person. So she discusses the aches, pains, and stresses clients might be feeling, then help them determine whether treatments such as acupressure, shiatsu massage, or hot-stone massage might be best. She also offers Bioslimming Body wraps.
"Just think of us as the Gucci of hair," says Canyon Falls Spa & Salon managing partner Adam Rimmel. "If you want nice hair extensions, you come to me." That's because Adam, who has worked in the extension business for more than six years, works with exclusive suppliers to bring in 100% human hair. He also ensures that a state-accredited company certifies all of his extension master stylists.
But Canyon Falls Spa & Salon's three locations offer more than just extensions?clients can expect attentive, professional service from any hairstylist, aesthetician, or nail technician on the staff. "They're all local, so they're all looking to build their clientele based on their positive customer experiences," Adam says, adding that many of his employees have a following of regular customers. He also calls out his "phenomenal" skincare staff members, who boast an average of 10?12 years of experience. Intent on "improving skin, not just pampering skin," they wield premium beauty products whose quality often makes a strong impression?clients "know the difference as soon as they smell it," Adam says.
All the locations have private rooms for facials and waxing, as well as massage chairs with footbaths for pedicures. The Lake Mead Boulevard and Eastern Avenue locations also employ massage therapists who help clients work out kinks caused by twisting around to look at their newly beautified hair from the back.
It may look like a funky surf shack, but Paradise Nail Bar is actually an integral pit stop on the road to beauty. During relaxing mani-pedis, the studio's technicians pamper feet with natural scrubs and adorn nails with intricate designs depicting flowers, hearts, and presidential visages. Not to be outdone, the aestheticians cleanse pores with facials and detoxify birthday suits with body wraps within the privacy of a treatment room. Waxing treatments whisk away large swathes of unwanted hair, while threading sessions leave brows artfully arched and upper lips free of fuzz.
ViBE Spa & Salon pampers corporal peripheries inside an urban sanctuary, washing away accumulated stress and bolstering the beauty of each customer. A licensed cosmetologist and experienced staff treat tresses to haircuts that include a consultation, shampoo, scalp massage, blow-dry, style, and bubble-gum removal. Smocked salon experts coddle follicles with a deep-conditioning treatment or add some sparkle to everyday looks with a partial-highlight application.
Bella Vita Boutique Spa blends two specific trades: massage therapy and skincare. Licensed massage therapist Pablo Poloni unites with licensed aesthetician Georgina Poloni to bring their extensive training and experience to clients, pampering them with custom bodywork treatments and facials. Massage options include hot-stone, medical, and couples massages with aromatherapy and foot scrubs. Skincare services include a signature facial with an aromatic sweet orange steam, and an organic facial that uses plant extracts such as argan oil, coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe vera to invigorate skin. In all, the spa offers 10 different facial options, as well as waxing services.
SVIP Foot Spa uses an ancient method of healing: foot reflexology. Trained experts apply direct pressure to nerve endings in the foot said to correlate to specific areas on the body, thus working to alleviate pain from the stresses and staircases of everyday life. While patrons are pampered, they relax atop chaise lounges surrounded by wooden dividers and curtains in hues of deep red and rich gold.
