Client comfort is the No. 1 priority at Unique Creations Therapeutic Day Spa, where guests are greeted by attentive assistants who shower them with warm slippers, fluffy robes, and complimentary refreshments. Specialists in treating fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and sports injuries extend their tension-taming prowess to services that are strictly indulgent, including eight different facials built around organic, all-natural products. Calm, private treatment rooms play host to detoxifying mud wraps, sea-salt body scrubs, and Kenti massages that swap out oils for skin-softening shea butter, and an onsite whirlpool offers relaxing soaks and hourly reenactments of Speed 2: Cruise Control.
Starting her career as a movie hair and makeup artist, Alicia Allain now runs the beautifying hub Ma Maison of Beaute. Her team of aestheticians snip, style, and chemically straighten locks, thread eyebrows into expressive arches, and wax away peach fuzz from legs and secret tails. Patrons can enlist a stylist for makeup application and hairstyling for special occasions or opt to banish tension with specialized massage techniques that hail from countries all over the world, including Asia and Hawaii.
Cody King understands muscles. Aside from graduating as the valedictorian of his class at MTC, the licensed massage therapist spent 10 years working as a certified fitness instructor, allowing him to bring a unique understanding of the body's need for recovery, relaxation, and frequent fist bumps to the massage table. Drawing on his expertise in musculoskeletal anatomy and physiology, he integrates multiple massage techniques––including Swedish, hot stone, and neuromuscular therapy––to customize treatments that address specific pain- or stress-related complaints. He also works in tandem with a licensed physician at Capitol Spine and Rehabilitation, where physical therapy and chiropractic medicine meet spa-like services, to help clients find relief from injury and get back on the leapfrog circuit as quickly as possible.
Formerly Christian Avery Spa, Renew Day Spa & Salon houses a team of licensed massage therapists, stylists, and aestheticians that fawns over patrons throughout each massage, facial, and manicure in a cornucopia of rejuvenating services. The staff focuses on building a clientele not by relying on grandiose décor but by establishing long-term relationships with customers. In addition to a lenient six-hour cancellation policy, Renew Day Spa & Salon promises a calm environment untouched by the noisy sound of cellphone/pager courtship rituals.
Live Love Day Spa's licensed aestheticians and massage therapists work together to bolster inner wellness and imbue exteriors with a healthy glow. Magenta orchids peek out from all corners of the spa, lending their fragrances to the air while steady hands uproot unwanted fuzz and turn back the clock on complexions with an array of organic facials, vitamin C peels, and anti-aging treatments. Massage therapists ease physical and emotional tension with a slew of relaxing modalities, calling upon heated stones, aromatherapy oils, and deep-tissue techniques to relieve aches caused by skeletons trying to break loose of their human shells.
Each of the facials at Spa Benefique is designed to gently treat problematic skin. The Image acne facial douses pesky pimples with a blend of salicylic acid, enzymes, retinol, and benzoyl peroxide. The Vitamin C facial blasts away free radicals and air kisses squatting in pores. The Refinement facial aims to diminish fine lines by sloughing off dead skin cells with gentle chemical exfoliants. The experts can also tend to matters below the neck with such treatments as a massage that send muscles into a deep sleep and warm wax that sends unwanted hairs away from the legs and bikini area.
