Massage World Spa is dedicated to providing spa services that care for the body and calm the mind. Rejuvenate a disheveled dermis with the 60-minute deluxe facial, which includes a complete skin analysis, an exfoliation treatment, extractions, a pore-cleansing mask and moisturizer, and a soothing shoulder and neck massage. Customers without faces can opt to experience one of three massages—the hot-stone treatment, which eases tension with cold or heated river stones thoroughly slathered with oil; the deep-tissue massage, which frees lower-level muscles and tissues with stress-releasing squeezes; or the Swedish massage, a classic procedure that uses five trademark stroke styles and a smidgen of snow from the Secret Alps. Round out your facial or massage with a 15-minute session in the spa's six-person Jacuzzi tub.
Deep-seated stresses dissipate at the hands of Limback Wellness Center's certified massage therapists. The center specializes in hot-stone and hot-towel massages, which employ penetrating heat and soothing circular motions to boost circulation, oxygenate muscles, and alleviate the lingering stiffness that comes from serving as the spring festival’s Maypole. Aside from their popular heated modalities, the team of male and female massage therapists treats clients to gentle relaxation massages and more focused deep-tissue work.
Slim Trim Spa supplies all-natural weight-loss supplements to clients and specializes in modern services tailored to a variety of wellness needs. Ultrasonic cavitation heats up microscopic air bubbles to break up fat cells in problem areas then safely and naturally metabolize them out of the body. A number of massage modalities, including sports, deep-tissue, and trigger-point therapy, can assist the detoxifying effects by stimulating circulation and energizing muscles.
At NuSpa Medical, a physician-led med spa, licensed aestheticians treat complexions with one of five facial therapies after diagnosing epidermal ailments during a detailed skin analysis. The deep-cleansing facial ejects oily buildup with miniature slingshots, allowing pores to breathe in mists of steam before a therapeutic mask calms blemishes. Sun-damaged skin rises above pigmentation issues thanks to the vitamin C- and seaweed-infused luminous-glow facial, and fine lines flee following exposure to the anti-aging B5 gel of the reconditioning and firming treatment. The men's refining treatment first weeds ingrown hairs from skinscapes, then massages faces to power circulation and applies a tightening mask to firm skin that's become loosened from having too many clothespins stored on it.
We spoke with Jack Macaluso—Regional Social Media and Web Coordinator at Beauty Schools of America—about how the academies prepare students for careers in the real world and why it's important for the schools to give back to their communities.
On the schools' mission
Above all else, Jack says that the schools "try to focus and harness the students' creativity," while giving them all of the experience and practical skills they need not simply to be prepared to enter the work force, but to succeed and thrive. The relatively lengthy training programs ensure that aspiring stylists, cosmetologists, makeup artists, barbers, and massage therapists fully understand the intricacies of their chosen specialty, as well as what they need to do to continue advancing their future career according to Jack.
On the role of the instructors
With a roster of instructors that includes industry professionals with international spa and salon experience, Beauty Schools of America strives to give attendees a broad view of the numerous options open to them. Jack is also clear that the teachers' guidance isn't limited to classroom environments. When the advanced-level students are allowed hone their talents by performing treatments for actual clients, "an instructor or two will always be there to assist and answer questions," he says.
On the products that the students use during treatments
Students use brand name products like Moroccanoil, Sojourn, Nioxin, and others. Working alongside their instructors at modern service stations, these stylists use these products to craft en vogue cuts, color, styling and therapeutic practices.
On the schools' charitable involvement
Beauty Schools of America embraces opportunities to give back to its communities while providing real-world experience for students at the same time. Jack goes on to describe events where the schools' aspiring barbers and cosmetologists performed complimentary services for underprivileged residents, and he mentions one specific occasion when massage students provided free treatments for community members who participated in a bike ride dedicated to raising awareness about multiple sclerosis.
