“Hello beautiful.” This simple phrase adorns a sign that hangs near the entrance of Get Posh! Day Spa for Girls, but its significance goes far deeper than just decoration. For owner Jeanette Brown, it’s a call to action, telling each young client who walks through the door that her spa is a place where beauty treatments are less about impressing others and more about discovering your most likeable you. As black-and-white portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe look on, clients indulge in treatments from the spa’s menu, which includes spa services for kids and adults, along with the spa’s specialty: themed spa parties for teens and tweens. During these get-togethers, Jeanette and her trained team can turn dreams into vivid reality, whether they’re organizing a fashion show where made-over young women learn to walk the runway and perform in a talent showcase or staging a princess-crowning party that features story time with a fairytale princess and tips on how to wave, curtsy, and swim through a moat without getting your tiara wet.
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.
Following the lead of licensed chiropractors and medical physicians, the staff at Advanced Healthcare Physical Medicine eschew symptom-based treatments in favor of a preventive approach that promotes holistic wellness. After greeting each patient with an initial consultation, the doctors draw on their comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology to tailor individual weight loss plans. To supplement these treatments, the team cares for bodies with multiple detox programs designed to stimulate weight loss and improve general health.
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.
Massage therapists at Believe Day Spa & Boutique have three goals: release stress, loosen muscle tightness, and increase their clients' sense of well-being. To do this, they customize each session to the needs of each patron, adding such modalities as deep-tissue massage, hot-stone release, and scalp massage as needed. They partner their line of massages with skincare, including deep-cleansing and anti-aging facials, detoxifying seaweed body wraps, and smoothing cellulite treatments.
Hair and nails have a lot in common––they're constantly growing, both look better with color, and they don't like horror movies. That's why A Wild Safari Hair & Nail Salon's stylists work alongside nail technicians to beautify both unruly split ends and overgrown cuticles. In addition to typical cuts and color treatments, hairdressers straighten hair using the Brazilian or Japanese method; nail artists can provide acrylic sets and reflexology pedicures.
