Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
At Table for One, owner and licensed aesthetician Wendy Rodriguez eschews standardizing her services and instead tailors every treatment to each client. During a massage, for example, her approach may range from relaxing the entire body to focusing on a particularly tight area that's impeding a guest's well-being. This fluidity of approach also characterizes her facials. She further personalizes all of services with add-ons, such as reflexology and aromatherapy in scents extracted from natural elements, such as honey. Within Headturner's Salon, Wendy maintains a relaxing studio anchored by a massage table draped in plush blankets.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
To create a tranquil, relaxing experience, The Spa of Cool Springs incorporates elements of nature into both its treatments and its decor. Guests walking into the reception area are greeted by comfortable brown leather armchairs and a substantial marble-and-stone desk. In the treatment rooms, deep-green walls and botanically inspired prints bring the outdoors in. Therapists perform a variety of massage modalities within their dimly lit hallows, using earthy tools such as warm river rocks and brown-sugar scrubs. During skincare treatments, the fragrant and sustainably farmed ingredients in Éminence Organic Skin Care products soothe weary skin. Aestheticians promote a balanced complexion with probiotics and tea-tree oil, or employ a citrusy, herbal formula to target men's ingrown hairs or stubborn Muscle Milk mustaches.
Licensed massage therapist Stacy Fisher helps her clients achieve full-body wellness with a slate of rejuvenating services. She uses long, gliding strokes to unwind muscles during Swedish massages, and shifts to light touch energy work to relieve chronic pain with cranial sacral therapy. The nourishing products that highlight each sessions are of Stacy’s own creation, and include sugar scrubs, facial creams, and beeswax lip balm.
