From their stress-free oasis inside The Park Hotel, the therapists at Fusion Massage dissipate stress and tension with gliding Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressures, and soothing aromatherapy oils. As their name implies, they specialize in an ultimate fusion massage that blends traditional modalities with Thai stretching. When the therapists’ nimble fingers aren’t enough, they melt away aches with hot stones that can be gently placed on muscles or hurled at backs to break up clumps of tension.
Hot Springs Surgery and Vein Clinic's surgeon-helmed staff wields a wealth of aesthetic-improvement experience to slim physiques with an all-natural series of fat-burning B12 lipo shots. Known to enhance liver function, the amino acid cocktail contained in the lipotropic shots carts away excess fat and toxic waste bundled at the end of liver and gallbladder driveways. A series of shots, administered over five consecutive weeks, can also create an uptick in energy, boosting activity levels and leaving clients as animated as a 5 a.m. barista dance-off. The shots, composed of B12, choline, methione, and inositol, can also increase metabolism and improve moods, though patients with Sulfa allergies should avoid methione.

Lorri Boyce, a 20-year veteran of the beauty industry, gussies up patrons amid these furnishings. She concentrates on improving faces with microdermabrasion treatments that slough away dead skin cells and beautifying faces with flattering makeup.
