Burnt-red walls and cozy furniture create a homey, welcoming experience for guests at Lena Salon & Spa, ideal for relaxing before a pampering beauty treatment. Salon and spa services run the gamut from haircuts to eyelash extensions and nailcare. Airbrush tanning, massages, and bridal packages are also available.
Spartas infuses serenity into peaceful patrons with relaxing, therapeutic treatments. Nullify nagging knots and kinks in bone-and-muscle storage devices by appeasing them with the soothing strokes of a massage ($35) instead of rubbing them with a homemade apple pie. The detoxifying aromatherapy steam ($10) cleanses dirt, grime, and oil from the pores while softening the skin. A hand paraffin treatment ($15) exfoliates dead skin cells from hardworking phalanges with the Beauticontrol instant manicure and softens appendage ends with a repair cream. Multiple layers of paraffin are then applied to make hands silky smooth and ready for glove fittings or afternoons spent shaving coconuts.
At Little Diva Day Spa, little ladies ages 2–13 get their first taste of primping and pampering fit for royalty. During meticulous manicures, delicate digits are gently scrubbed before nails get lacquered ($5) or decorated with artful designs ($10). Pedicures treat tiny feet to a foot scrub and soak, before polishing toes ($10). Sweethearts embrace their true nature with cupcake facials of pink or chocolate frosting, with a gluten-free option for sensitive skin ($10). The red-carpet readying process is completed with glitter eye makeup ($5) and hand-painted glitter tattoos ($5), so lasses can coordinate with their tiaras or Dora the Explorer backpacks.
Coventina—Erie's largest, most exclusive spa—beautifies bodies and creates comelier countenances with a variety of soothing services. Wrap yourself in luxury—and linens—with the herbal body wrap ($50), a de-stressing full-body wrap, where herb-infused linens help stimulate circulation, eliminate toxins, heal sore muscles, and make noses think there's Thanksgiving stuffing nearby. A paraffin wrap ($55) uses the wonders of wax to soften and moisturize winter-hardened body rind. For a more specific sprucing up, the Bioelements facial ($55) is personalized to each patient's complexion, using a combination of deep pore cleansing, exfoliation, and facial serums to correct impish imperfections. Coventina also performs a variety of manicures, pedicures, and massages amid the serene environment of its seven acres of wooded property.
Muscle kneader Toveh Zaifert knows that every one of her clients is different. That's why each of her massages is different as well. A graduate of the New York Institute of Massage, Toveh specializes in the customization of her treatments to fit each individual's needs. When she begins a treatment, she'll ask if there are any specific aches, pains, or fears of cowbells she can help allay. Clients then can also choose whether they'd like soothing music played or prefer the serenity of silence. Toveh has trained in a number of massage modalities and is particularly skilled at Swedish, deep-tissue, and medical massage.
