Tired and tense bodies will enjoy The Chopping Block's relaxing hour-long Swedish massage, with a licensed massage therapist. Swedish massage, a light- to medium-pressured technique, is the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. Or, if long hours conducting commuter trains have left your skin sullied and sallow, opt for the European deep-pore-cleansing facial. One of The Chopping Block's licensed aestheticians will slough off dead skin cells with a thorough exfoliation, extract unsightly dermal invaders, and apply a specialized mask to the skin, all while your hands heat up in warming mitts. As the mask sets, your hands are removed from the mitts and joined with the décolleté area for a soothing massage, and when the treatment is complete, the aesthetician will provide you with a personalized skin analysis and tips on how to hold your head to more prominently feature your "best side."
Beneath the glow of Abeille Salon & Spa's elegant chandeliers, clients can indulge in services for face, hair, and body.

In the spa's private treatment rooms, guests can lie down on comfortable massage tables and let massage therapists purge stress with four modalities, including prenatal massage. Aestheticians can tackle blemishes and signs of aging with four types of facials, including one that features a skin-soothing poetry reading.
Posh Salon's mission is to make hair look great and stay that way. The first part is simple enough?a trained staff offers haircuts, coloring treatments, and styling to transform any head of hair into an elegant 'do.

Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, manicures, and pedicures the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity.
