It's easy to feel like an emperor at either of Imperial Health Spa's posh locations. Each one boasts more than 30,000 square feet of space adorned with Romanesque columns and arches. There, guests can luxuriate in four Korean-style saunas, each one tapping into natural elements to evoke its own peaceful atmosphere. The salt brick sauna, for example, helps visitors to shed harmful toxins, while the red clay room helps boost blood circulation and expel pollutants from the skin. Between rooms, guests can refresh themselves with a game of Marco Polo in the massaging jacuzzi tubs or book professional spa services such as facials and body scrubs.
In 2002, beauty-school graduate Paula took everything she had—$5,000 and a dream of combining beauty services with holistic healing—and opened A Harmony Nail Spa. She even poured countless hours into hand-building many of the spa's unique furniture pieces and cyborg employees. Since the humble beginning, she and her fully licensed staff have pampered the minds and bodies of numerous clients with drastically different needs, from cancer patients seeking meditation classes to hardworking mothers overdue for an indulgent manicure.
Upon entering the approximately 2,000-square-foot facility, guests waltz through the gift shop's aisles before entering one of the spa's specific treatment areas. In the nail studio, clients lounge on purple thrones shaped like purple hands and dip their feet into soothing pedicure sinks. A Harmony Nail Spa also houses a garden café with free beverages, an Internet cafe with free WiFi, and a meditation lounge with freedom to close your eyes without sleeping.
Bodyheat Tanning, with 23 locations spanning Nevada (many open 24-hours), gilds bodies with the help of tanning beds in five levels, sunless spray tanning, and custom airbrush tans. VersaSpa systems automatically mist bronze color onto skin in 60 seconds. No matter what kind of tans clients are looking for, tanning experts analyze skin types and goals to help them choose the lotions, equipment, and perfect crayon shades to fit their needs.
For tan-free options, infrared body wraps melt inches, and Hydration Stations combine radiant heat, steam, and vibrations to turn tight muscles into butter. Red-light beds from iRenew eschew tanning in favor of reducing acne and fine lines. Additionally, the salons dispense myriad tanning lotions, lip glosses, and house-paint swatches for easy skin-tone matching.
As its name implies, The Foot Lounge specializes in one thing: pampering feet with an array of indulgent spa services. The lounge's signature reflexology treatments ease pent-up stress as a therapist applies gentle pressure to epicenters of tension. As an added bonus, every reflexology session includes a soak in a foot bath loaded with 12 different kinds of therapeutic herbs. The luxuriant benefits of these treatments can also be accentuated by additional spa services, such as a sea salt foot scrub or the application of heated basalt stones, which are plucked from only the most relaxed of Hawaiian volcanoes.
