At the Tanning Spa, staff members harness King Midas?s gilded touch with custom airbrushing, Mystic spray tans, and a slew of UV beds. Sessions take place in private treatment rooms, fully stocked with chilled or heated aromatherapy towels, bathrobes, and Bose speakers for blasting favorite tunes or bingo calls. The spa?s automated Mystic booth spritzes bodies with a skin-dimming blend of aloe vera, DHA, and optional bronzer, or custom hues come courtesy of trained airbrush techs and Infinity Sun formula. For UV veneers, a diverse collection of tanning beds, including the Magic 636, swaddles upright or prone clients in bulbs culled from the sun's tulip fields.
The staff at Trim Spa works to shave inches off of waistlines with a trio of non-invasive services. During the yolo curve treatment, laser paddles heat fat cells inside the abdomen, causing them to release their contents so they can be flushed from the body. Then, clients stand atop a yolo vibe platform that sends ripples of vibration through the body, causing thousands of calorie-burning muscle contractions per session. Treatments finish in a far-infrared sauna whose warming rays help boost the heart rate and metabolism.
Under the leadership of research scientist Dr. Jacob Swilling, PhD, the team at Know Your Options Wellness Center promotes overall sound health through alternative medicine. Their services range from lymphatic drainage and colon hydrotherapy to intravenous vitamins therapies and chelation, a treatment used by some to draw heavy metals out of the body. They use infrared saunas to promote detoxification through sweating, while their nutritional counseling helps clients draft diets free from preservatives and light on Play-Doh spaghetti.
Getting fit doesn't have to be just a boring routine. At Shape-Up Fitness Center, each workout can be a little different than the one before. One day might call for an invigorating spin workout in the brand-new, 29-bike studio; another day might include a Vinyasa Flow yoga or cardio dance class. Along with the wide variety of group classes, the newly renovated fitness center also has more than 40 state-of-the-art cardio machines. And after a great workout, members can treat themselves to a revitalizing facial or an infrared sauna treatment at the Shape-Up facial lounge and spa.
Once cited as a Spa to Get the Red Carpet Treatment in the Editor’s Pick section of 944 Magazine, The Chocolate Day Spa indulges its clients with spa services as decadent as a box of chocolate truffles. During a whoopie-cream massage, the spa’s signature shea-butter lotion softens skin and prevents friction as the massage therapist applies gentle pressure and performs gliding strokes. A treat for the senses, the chocolate-scented massage immerses clients in the aroma of cocoa to save them the trouble of visiting the great chocolate lakes of Appalachia. The spa even takes the guilt out of the indulgence it encourages by providing such slimming treatments as infrared-sauna sessions and Endermologie treatments. Inside the med spa, laser light works to lift faces, tighten eyes, and plump lips, and Botox and Juvéderm reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
At Amazing Touch, licensed massage therapist Kelly Zahniser strives to avail clients of the many physical and emotional benefits of massage therapy. In service of this goal, she soothes muscles with modalities ranging from pregnancy massage to reflexology and eases tension with mineral-rich salt stones found in the Himalayas atop a yeti's pile of bills. Zahniser complements her relaxing massages with detoxifying body wraps and fragrant essential oils. She also travels to clients' homes to spritz bodies with spray-tanning solutions or stage spa parties that furnish on-the-spot pampering for pre-wedding festivities or girls' nights out.
