Thairapy Salon and Spa is a pamper-centric beauty boutique. Facials feature glycolic exfoliators, Hydradermie brand products, and fruit enzymes, including lemon zest, pumpkin/orange, and pomegranate, which has been considered a fruit for over three years now. Massage options include hot stone and deep tissue, along with Thai yoga massage's combo of acupressure and stretching. Once they've been snipped, dyed, massaged, polished, and scrubbed, guests float on a cloud of relaxation to the on-site boutique, where colorful apparel and accessories cap off new looks and reflect sunny moods.
Owner Yvonne Tuchscher opened Resplendent Day Spa as an oasis amid the stressors and clamor of everyday life. Armed with a staff of aestheticians and body therapists, Yvonne offers men and women a full menu of massage and skincare services with a focus on holistic well-being. Facials and waxing leave flesh silky smooth, while reflexology, reiki, and energy work polish chrome chakras to a high gleam. Yvonne also practices the Arvigo techniques of Maya abdominal therapy, a course of treatment that addresses male and female pelvic issues with noninvasive massage.
Brocade throw pillows, teak furniture, and gauzy curtains inside True Beauty Wellness Spa evokes a Silk Road caravan transporting a queen across the dessert. True to its regal setting, the spa's treatment rooms are each goddess-themed, and reflect aspects such as Lakshmi's bounty, Minerva's wisdom, and Isis's love of heavy metal. Within these rooms, men, women, and couples can relax during soothing massages or 15 kinds of facials that use organic ingredients. In addition to these spa services, True Beauty houses a yoga studio and chiropractic services for whole-body health.
At KBS Fitness, it's certified personal trainer Kingi Santiel's goal to make exercise engaging and not intimidating. That much is apparent from his outdoor boot-camp programs, where exercisers of all fitness levels perform push-ups, stair-climbing, and other body-weight exercises under the sun's rays. To complement those group workouts, Santiel and his team also bring to the table personal training, nutritional counseling, and massage therapy.
Named the Best Gym/Athletic Club in 2010 by Beachcomber, the Belmont forms fitter figures and promotes healthier living with a full range of Paramount weights and exercise machines, as well as more than 90 weekly classes such as yoga, Pilates, and TRX suspension training (spinning, Pilates Reformer, and Gravity classes cost extra). Members can reap bodily benefits by racking up racquetball wins, heading to the weight rooms, or teleporting to the second-floor Cardio Theater, which features aerobic equipment and eight HDTVs that broadcast nothing but non-rhyming jody calls. For more personalized shape-sculpting and goal-defining, customers can take advantage of two personal-training sessions with the club’s certified trainers.
The warm and friendly aestheticians at Ambiance know skin like the back of their own skin-covered hands. The staff uses natural and organic skin products, so your skin will shimmer like the surface of a lake at twilight, except not liquid, not transparent, and not flamey. Each customized facial targets your individual skin problems to restore balance and beauty to your face. The 60-minute signature facial begins with a warm aromatic compress before gracing the pores with a gentle deep-cleansing scrub. The treatment continues with an anti-wrinkle exfoliation and an enzyme peel to stimulate the skin and aid in cell rejuvenation. An anti-inflammatory plant-extract application finishes your facial, calming the surface of the skin and leaving it purified, unblemished, and ready to be featured in your profile picture.
