In the heart of wine country, serenity blooms in Heaven on Earth Spa as tranquil sounds atmospherically cuddle with the aromas of essential oils. Robed bodies and slippered feet pad past the lobby fireplace, where an ornate mantle exudes grandeur without needing to show off its youth field-hockey trophies. Rich hardwood flooring cuts a path to private rooms where aestheticians' equipment couples with rows of ilike organic lotions and serums that contain no artifical colors or animal by-products. Leather pedicure chairs cradle backsides as feet soak in a warm bath then luxuriate in extras such as massage and paraffin. While all the spa's treatments are designed for all bodies, men can also take in special services designed to coddle such typically male conditions as sports-worn feet, razor-burned faces, and griller's elbow.
Patients slip into fleece robes before beginning treatment with Bryana Mann, a laser technician who has undergone extensive training with Cutera equipment. Bryana employs Cutera's technology to diminish skin issues such as acne, wrinkles, and damage from blinking messages to the sun in Morse code. The spa's signature 3D Facelift combines laser rejuvenation with radiofrequency technology, changing the way skin looks and acts. Treatments such as surface-smoothing microdermabrasion or Accent skin-tightening sessions keep faces and bodies looking youthful.
Tall windows flood the lobby with natural light, illuminating leather couches and shelves lined with Viviere Skin Care products. A textured stone wall stands behind the front desk, and a wall fountain fills the air with a peaceful babbling.
At Central Spa, there?s a thin line between looking good and feeling good. Whatever?s left of that line dissolves when clients relax in the spa?s five whirlpool massage chairs as the staff administers beautifying treatments. Those include numerous nail services, such as spa mani-pedis, gelish soak-off polish, and nail art decals, as well as the faux-mink lash-extension applications and signature body wraps.
Central Spa?s skincare specialist offers facials that address many issues. With its exfoliants, oxygenation, and massage, the comprehensive serenity facial can help the face feel fresh and radiant. On the other hand, the estheticians can subdue tense muscles and frayed nerves with relaxation and hot-stone massages. There?s also a double treatment room so clients can de-stress alongside their significant others.
Thanks to the diverse experience levels of At Your Fingertips? staff, manicure clients can reap the fresh outlook of a two-year nail expert, put themselves in the seasoned hands of a nail tech with 22 years in the industry, or call on the fashion savvy of anyone in between. Whomever they choose, guests select from a lengthy service menu that ranges from speedy express manicures to pampering sessions replete with paraffin, exfoliating scrubs, and ornate nail art. The technicians supplement their hand- and foot-renovating services by waxing off unwanted hairs, tinting eyebrows, and perming eyelashes frazzled from nightly wrestling bouts with their eyebrow neighbours. At Your Fingertips also houses a retail area where clients can pick up a variety of polishes, nail-care essentials, and Lomasi lotions and scrubs.
Bolstered by Aveda products and training, Total E'Clips Salon & Spa is a hub for body-wide pampering and beauty services for the hair, skin, and hands. Aveda products lend their beautifying properties to each client's treatment and carry a commitment to incorporating naturally derived ingredients from around the world, such as lavender from Bulgaria. The salon's online appointment booker allows clients to easily schedule any treatment offered, such as body waxing, a restorative six-hour spa package, or bridal-hairstyling sessions, which toast to the big day with champagne and the brainstorming of witty one-liners to replace "I do."
Practice makes perfect at Loyal Hair Therapy. Before snipping a single strand of hair, each new stylist goes through the salon's 50-week advanced education program. The program includes hands-on instruction with a senior stylist, written examinations, and final tests in all areas of professional hairdressing. Stylists continue to further their skills after completing the program by attending classes, seminars, and advanced academies. Beyond their training, they also pay close attention to fashion trends, from emerging celebrity hairstyles to the number of hairs needed to pull off a perfect ponytail.
