As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability—Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa’s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
CoreFit Training Studio's inclusive environment combines old-school exercise philosophies with modern training methods to help patrons sculpt strong, lean physiques. Studio owner and certified fitness instructor Liz Gilinger specializes in functional training techniques that use weighted kettlebells, cross-training, and Pilates to work the whole body, including all the muscles used to wrestle mermaids on their home turf. Her supporting cast of dedicated trainers is trained and certified in a range of specialized modalities such as hot yoga, suspension training, and dance-inspired Zumba.
Hollywood Tans' fleet of UV and spray-tanning booths gild epidermises with a host of high-tech amenities. The HT60 machine builds up a base tan in three–four sessions and catches most stray UVB rays, a process which prevents the skin from exfoliating and loosing its color too soon. Custom-airbrushed and Mystic spray-tan options bypass UV rays like a tree on a hunger strike, and customizable cartridges allow clients to choose their ideal color for a natural tan that lasts up to a week. The full-service salons are open seven days a week and also offer waxing, and makeup application.
Symphony Laser Center welcomes patients looking to obtain aesthetic services in a welcoming med-spa environment. With free consultations, the center guides customers toward the right treatments for them and their evil, mustachioed twins. Be it laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, or wrinkle reduction, the center boasts proven medical and noninvasive solutions to bring out each customer’s beauty.
A spray tan, a deep-tissue massage, an anti-aging facial, and partial highlights. One might spend a full day scurrying about town to check these items off the to-do list, but the [staff members](http://gr.pn/Rc90OS at Salon Twenty-Two can accomplish it all under one roof. Led by owner and stylist Tracy, they combine their specialized training in L'Oreal and Redken color, keratin treatments, and makeup application with first-grade products from Bioelements and Pureology. In addition to waxing and nail services, they administer cryothermic body treatments that help boost circulation and weave in Cinderella hair extensions clipped directly off the head of the indentured stepsister.
