In 2005, Sandra Gutierrez was stressed and overworked. She found relaxation at a spa, but not in the way you'd think. Sandra discovered that helping others feel better also made her feel better, so she started a new career as a licensed massage therapist.
That career has since blossomed, and Sandra now kneads muscles daily at Euphoria Massage & Spa. Along with five other therapists—all of whom she personally trains—Sandra eases tension with Swedish strokes and relieves aching necks, backs, and shoulders with trigger-point techniques. While Sandra and her team focus on relaxing muscles, Euphoria's resident aesthetician cleanses and detoxifies skin with clay body wraps and sea-salt scrubs. Treatment sessions unfold inside spacious rooms, where soft piano music drowns out the sound of your boss banging on the spa's window, asking for that TPS report.
The beauty and wellness experts at Spa Organic Garden improve their clients' wellbeing with a full slate of facials and bodywork services. Teen facials combat acne and blemishes, whereas collagen facials ward off the signs of aging or getting a new ring under your eyes each birthday. Massage services draw inspiration from Eastern and Western modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue massage and reflexology. Full-body scrubs exfoliate and invigorate the senses by applying aromatic oils and buffing away rough patches with sweet organic sugars.
The massage therapists and aestheticians at Royal Serene House shun noxious odors and synthetic compounds for spa products that are natural and organic. The result is most immediately noticed by the nose, as the fragrance of lime leaf, apricot, and mango body scrubs swirl through the air while their sugars slough off dead skin cells. Mud from the Baltic Sea, seaweed from Norway, and Bohemian black organic fango clay keep facials free of chemicals as they draw out toxins and oils.
Cristina Queiroz specializes in gentle hair removal utilizing a sugaring technique in order to give her clients the closest possible wax without lingering irritation. In addition to performing her specialization on the Brazilian region, she provides sugar hair removal for men, as well. She also provides spray tans, chemical peels, and facials.
Jadwig Skin Care & Med Spa’s aestheticians go a step beyond the traditional spa experience, pampering their clients with medical-grade treatments that relax and produce results. If their facials seem luxurious at first blush, consider the fact that some are enhanced with glowing masks and an exfoliating scrub that contains flakes of 14-karat gold. Others heal skin with stem cells sourced from a rare Swiss apple or smooth out fine lines with a steamroller coated in vitamin C.
Not to be outdone, the spa’s therapists relieve tension with the targeted pressures of deep-tissue massage or the gentle strokes of a prenatal session. For an exterior to match your revitalized muscles, finish off your visit with an exfoliating body scrub or a 100% organic spray tan.
Peony Wellness and Healing Center combines the best of Eastern and Western medical treatments to promote wellbeing. Each practitioner calls on at least three years of experience when restoring the body’s flow of energy, be it through precisely placed acupuncture needles or tuina—a form of massage therapy that helps improve circulation and eliminate toxins. In addition to these Eastern-influenced treatments, therapists call on classic deep-tissue or Swedish massages to abolish stress.
