At Cre8u Massage & Bodywork, muscles are put under controlled pressure to remove stiffness and painful knots, restoring them to relaxed elasticity. Clients can choose between a Swedish massage—a fluid style employing light to moderate pressure in order to increase circulation—or the deep tissue massage, where communications between the central nervous system and the muscular skeletal system are de-encrypted and reharmonized into stress-free symphonies. There is no special clothing requirement, so those in need of kneading can arrive directly from their chair at work or their Lego mattress at home.

Before developing Elite Ceuticals Non Surgical Face Lift, the owner spent more than 20 years formulating skincare products for other companies. Armed with that experience, she creates skincare blends that stimulate and revive aging skin with aloe vera that's grown hydroponically—that is, fed a regimen of minerals and vitamins and never treated with pesticides or put through a laminating machine.
House of Élan offers revitalizing body treatments for existing humans and personalized hair-removal options for men and women. Dr. John Verstraete and his team of whisker-erasers employ elos technology to clear bodily brush without resorting to wax or wildfires. Over the course of six sessions, strand assassins will harness bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to precisely target unwanted keratin and foil follicular invasions, systematically weakening woolen defenses with each treatment. Elos is purported to be effective in the eradication of lighter-colored hair on skin of most shades, hues, and tartan plaid patterns.
At Studio 1211, Barbara George taps into ancient Eastern and Egyptian techniques to soothe and beautify patrons. Inside a private treatment room, she aims to relieve pain and improve the nervous system with reflexology and shiatsu that applies focused pressure to mapped-out areas along the feet, scalp, and neck. The aromatherapy educator boasts 20 years of anti-aging product experience; during the spa's signature Egyptian facial, a milk-and-honey mask makes visages gleam back to life, wrinkles collapse into whispers, and cows and bees look on in bewilderment.
Even as a 4-year-old growing up in Honolulu, Vee Osborne was drawn to Hawaiian shamanism and the Huna philosophy, which stresses the balance of the mind, body, and spirit through one?s actions. Her early passion for healing others led her down the path to becoming a hypnotherapist, reiki master, and ordained minister before she funneled her devotion to creating harmony and guiding others toward wellness into Plaza West Massage & Day Spa. Here, clouds of gentle music and the scent of essential oils greet her guests, who slip into robes and sip wine as they unwind. And Vee?s Hawaiian roots remain readily apparent, inspiring the spa?s potted palms, bamboo massages, pi?a-colada scrubs, and wall-sized pictures that bring Pacific beaches to Kansas.
Vee?s healing services go beyond relaxation, though. Her team of massage therapists kneads aching muscles with Swedish, trigger-point, and deep-tissue modalities, deepening their knot-fighting effect with volcanic stones and essential oils. After a body wrap with Dead Sea salts or a glycolic peel, guests can visit the two-tiered sauna or extend their rejuvenation with an energy-balancing reiki session. The spa also delves into treatments that rely on electronic frequencies, such as a tri-phasic resonator, which fights cellulite, or quantum electro-ionization, which aims to diminish blemishes rather than cover them up with white-out. Before heading home, clients can pick up body and facial products from Vee?s eponymous line, such as Island Essence hair products, complete with tropical scents.
