The staff at Luminous Spa & Wellness pampers guests with powerful beauty routines that summon pure serenity. During a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, the staff can also soothe headaches with a lavender-oil scalp treatment. Services like these embody the spa's commitment to total-body wellness, rather than just beauty and rest alone.
In addition to skincare, massage, and aesthetic laser treatments, the staff fights cellulite and signs of aging with innovative technology. Their Synergie Cellulite Reduction treatments help smooth and shape problem areas. Alternatively, i-Lipo sessions use non-invasive, cool laser technology to sculpt bodies into lean lines. A private workout room and infrared sauna are available for customers to detoxify.
At Spa Moments, a team of beauty experts promotes tranquility in a clean, modern space complete with rich hardwood floors and a red-and-black-themed reception area. They perform soothing hot-stone massages, anti-aging facial treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis. The spa uses professional products such as St. Tropez sunless tanning formulas, and they have created an express-service menu ideal for lunch breaks or rush hour, that time of the day when standing still is frowned upon.
Melinda Wingard is a former registered nurse who built upon her clinical experience with dermatology and laser training, eventually opening her own med spa more than 12 years ago. Today, she helps banish cellulite, performs body-contouring treatments with VelaShape, and exiles blemishes with the touch of her specialized medical laser beams and a firm “please.” Loose skin becomes tighter and wrinkles fade under her aesthetic lasers, which she also uses to remove unwanted hair, spider veins, scars, and moles. Wingard even administers laser facials, which resurface and tone skin.
Ange de La Mer Spa promotes whole-body health through holistic treatments that clear cluttered bodies and minds. The licensed massage therapists and aestheticians comfort patients throughout the duration of their detoxifying services with attentive care. Patients can be hydrated and soothed with body wraps, salt scrubs, and massages, or cleared of internal toxins with colon hydrotherapies. Custom facial treatments restore the best qualities of youthful countenances and chase acne off the face and back into high-school yearbook photos.

At Lotus Holistic Health Spa, Salon and Fitness Studio, owner and stylist Camie Bolaski guides her diverse team?including a personal trainer and massage therapists?in fostering feelings of youthfulness from the inside and out.
