Embrace Yoga's team of instructors offer a series of classes aimed at transforming beginner and intermediate yogis into adroit practitioners of the bendy arts. Classes are offered in a body of styles such as Flow Yoga, which employs a steady stream of poses to build strength while shedding pounds like superfluous baby teeth. Beginners can take advantage of the soothing stretches and relaxation focus in Kripalu Hatha classes. Each session is capped at 16 students to ensure astronomical levels of student-instructor interaction, and daily availability of yoga classes requires minimal bending of inflexible schedules.
To say Vitality Spa Treatment has a variety of massages is an understatement. With 14 different massage possibilities—from lymphatic drainage to honey detox and pregnancy massages—the massage therapists tackle almost any sort of stress or muscle pain. But that's only one aspect of the pampering here. Along with massages, the staff beautifies guests with facials, including diamond-tip microdermabrasions and glycolic peels. Face and body waxing are also available.
More than 30 years after its inception, Cactus Salon & Spa and its team of continually educated stylists have not lost their edge—they earned the Long Island Press's designation as Best Hair Salon and Best Day Spa in 2012. It's not surprising, then, that the salon has enjoyed such impressive growth over the years, with more than two dozen separate spa and salon locations.
Although hair is still the focus—stylists craft 'dos that reflect everyday ease or fashion-forward thinking—the repertoire has expanded to include everything from nail treatments and massages to permanent cosmetics and laser services. Since the roster is so broad, many clients take advantage of Cactus Club memberships, which give them the flexibility to try multiple services and products by deactivating the force fields between treatment rooms and granting a 33% discount on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
For more than 25 years, the stylists of Design Masters Hair Salon have helped clients obtain classic and trendy 'dos by beginning each appointment with an in-depth consultation. These beauty talks are then followed by customized haircare services, from Awapuhi conditioning treatments and foil highlights to hair dyeing with ammonia-free color. Clients are also beautified with mani-pedis, aromatherapy massages, and waxing services.
Female empowerment is part of the foundation at BeautyMark Spa, a division of A Woman's Way Gynecological Practice. The staff works to improve women's self-confidence and quality of life with aesthetic services both traditional and technologically assisted. Trained aesthetician and laser technician, Susan L. Halbert not only boasts 20+ years of experience in the beauty industry, but also got her beauty know-how from Ross Burton, Oprah Winfrey's former professional makeup artist. Under the supervision of a doctor, Halbert and her team arm themselves with Skinceuticals products to provide skincare treatments ranging from AHA chemical peels to microdermabrasion to white-tea-infused sunless spray tans and threading services.
The techs stay current by using a Syneron ELOS IPL laser to zap away sunspots, erase facial wrinkles, or tighten jowels and the neck. Though many services at BeautyMark Spa are geared toward women, men are always welcome to partake in the center's med-spa treatments.
