Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
The Salt Suite's halotherapy rooms were carved from 24,000 pounds of salt imported from the Dead Sea, historically noted for its healing and wellness properties. The naturally antibacterial salt lies in layers upon the floor and walls, also flavoring the dry aerosol emissions that circulate within the fresh, temperate air pumped into each room by a halogenerator. Twenty-one minerals found within the salt aim to detoxify, cleanse, and replenish bodies, easing the effects of ailments such as sinusitis, eczema, allergies, asthma, COPD, and flavorless-popcorn syndrome.
The adult suite seats up to seven guests in individual spaces—while relaxing in cushioned chairs, patrons can mind-surf on a wave of soft music, count the number of semicolons in a magazine, or click boldly into unexplored sectors of the Internet. Toys and television entertain little busybodies inside the kids' room, where salt covers the ground and an underwater vista fills the space between floor and ceiling. In addition to salt therapy, The Salt Suite offers Yin, Vinyasa, and Hatha yoga sessions in one of its trademark salt chambers.
Since opening its first center in 1999, Laser Skin & Wellness has expanded to two locations, both of which provide medical aesthetic treatments overseen by Medical Director, Gloria Hakkarainen, M.D. And to ensure each patient receives the best treatment for their concerns, a personalized consultation is performed before technicians craft a customized treatment plan, which can include medical weight loss programs, laser tattoo removal, dermal fillers, and permanent makeup treatments. Laser technicians gently remove unwanted hair with a Cutera CoolGlide laser, which keeps the skin comfortable with a built-in cooling device, or a Cutera ProWave 770 system that can banish strands on all skin types including invisible. During acne treatments, a Clear Light system releases blue-violet rays across the skin, killing bacteria deep in the pores. To further beautify complexions, Laser Skin & Wellness’ staff also employs Obagi, SkinMedica, EltaMD, and Jan Marini products.
Since starting in 2003 with a focus on providing top-notch eyebrow-threading services, Sangita's Beauty Spa has evolved into a place that patrons frequent for a variety of spa treatments. The spa's threading artists and internationally trained aesthetician carefully work to keep skin smooth and clear with hair-plucking cotton threads and skin-rejuvenating treatments. Guests may also stop in for a relaxing 30- to 90-minute massage or to have their social-security number temporarily emblazoned onto their body with henna ink.
HoochiCoochi?s aestheticians specialize in Brazilian and Boyzilian waxes utilizing high-quality European Blue and Spanish-imported hard waxes for a more effective and less painful waxing experience. Clients can relax in the warm candlelit atmosphere with a complimentary glass of wine before having hair meticulously stripped from face, legs, back, or the most nether of the nether regions. For Brazilian-wax first-timers, clients can opt for a pre-wax consultation to ensure comfort, whether you're lady, gent, or a very lost Muppet.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
