Candice Motley brings 30 years of experience in the beauty industry to her work at Designz By Candice, which includes massages, body treatments, facials, and hair services. Her deep-tissue, reiki, and raindrop-therapy massage techniques relax bodies, and she adds additional treatments to help clients unwind, such as organic pomegranate and pure cane-sugar body scrubs and red-clay and chamomile body masks. After skin evaluations, Candice applies facials packed with Repêchage and Nu Skin products to cleanse, tone, and exfoliate complexions. In addition, she offers hair services, including haircuts, highlights and lowlights, perms, and smoothing treatments.
A facial ($65–$85 value) from Seventh Wonder Day Spa restores the integrity of the most identifiable body part, flushing out accumulated makeup, freeloading skin cells, and partially hydrogenated oils. Prettify your punim with Seventh Wonder's Deep-Cleansing Treatment (which includes a skin analysis, exfoliation, extraction, massage, and mask), an organic rejuvenating Diamond Facial, or an anti-aging 24K Gold Treatment (which uses pure gold, plant extracts, and essential oils to revitalize tired skin). This Groupon may also be used for one of Seventh Wonder's hour-long massages ($70–$85 value), including the Swedish relaxation massage, therapeutic massage, pre-natal massage, aromatherapy massage, or deep-tissue massage, but cannot be used toward hot-stone or couple's massage.
With 35 years of experience, the medical staff at Progressive Wellness Center leads patients in reimagining their current state of health. Weight-loss programs centered around HCG help clients turn bulky bodies into slimmer, stronger silhouettes, and aesthetic injectables work to tighten slack skin or shoo spider veins from appendages. Alternatively, IV nutritional therapy invigorates the body's absorption of nutrients and the brain's absorption of the subtext in the last episode of Barney and Friends. To keep patients happy and relaxed before and after appointments, Progressive Wellness Medical Center maintains comfortable seating and a café area stocked with healthful shakes, as well as organic coffee and green tea.
As the manager of the salon and spa, Stephanie at De Joy's Day Spa inherited a tradition of beauty care that began in 1955. She still takes joy in the spa's original mission of "making a person look beautiful," she says. To do so, she and her staff cut, highlight, and style their clients' hair into shining, tumbling locks or flattering, close-cropped 'dos. They always customize each look to highlight the client's unique beauty because, as Stephanie says, "[A] person's heart tells you a lot about [them]."

One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, and one part tattoo parlor, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men’s and women’s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program. In between workouts or wrinkle-reducing cosmetic injections, bodies can seek out immediate and permanent aesthetic enhancements at the hands of resident tattoo artist Jimmy Riggs. With 15 years of experience and a background as a multimedia artist, he can easily translate any design to skin, whether it be a lover’s name, a portrait of a favorite musician, or small-scale replica of Jackson Pollock’s No. 5
Even before taking their place on the massage table or in a heated pedicure chair, customers who walk into Elite Salon & Day Spa have a sense of the luxurious relaxation they can expect. They're greeted with complimentary beverages before being ushered into softly lit private rooms where candles flicker, and stress is submerged under a wash of relaxing music. Among other services, aestheticians improve skin with facials that use Repêchage products, a seaweed-based line manufactured in the United States. For those who need a getaway from family responsibilities or a stressful job turning the sun on and off every day, spa packages sequester guests in serenity for three to seven hours.
