No beauty specialty poses too great a challenge for the eponymous owner of Roni Lynn Day Spa, whose training and natural talents have led to her masteries of massage therapy, aesthetics, and makeup. Roni calls on her considerable reserves of wisdom and experience to helm a spa team that accents natural beauty with a variety of salon treatments.
Within minutes of your arrival at the spa, Roni’s signature touch and attention to detail become apparent. A complimentary vitamin-and-mineral shake accompanies each of the spa’s in-house treatments, and calming music pervades the air to set a tone conducive to relaxed meditation. Treatments run the gamut from massages and spray tans to facials that incorporate high-end products from brands such as Nu Skin, PCA, and Pharmanex—all of which can be purchased in the salon’s shop. Clients need not send body doubles to endure waxing treatments in their stead, as technicians employ a gentle touch to strip hair from arms, legs, and facial areas. The spa’s aestheticians and makeup artists travel directly to their clients for spa parties and wedding-day preparations, pampering brides with makeup application, updos, and complimentary background checks for grooms’ family curses.
At all 20 TNT Tanning locations throughout northeast Ohio, clients tan hides a healthy golden hue with the latest tanning beds and spray-tan booths. While at the salon, they can peruse shelves lined with skincare and tanning products such as bronzing powders, tanning lotions, and sunless sprays.
The staff members at Living Wellness Associates practice an array of personalized health-care therapies that are designed to help prevent illness and ease pain for each patient. Operating under the belief that wellness does not mean the absence of disease alone, technicians use a variety of holistic techniques to promote relaxation and maintain well-being. Guests unload their stresses with services such as relaxation massages and aromatherapy, which awakens olfactory receptors with lavender and chamomile essential oils and eucalyptus that reenergizes clients better than napping in coffee grounds. Additional therapies include body-balancing polarity treatments, reiki and reiki drumming, and sound therapy.
The owner and massage therapist at Angell's Touch Massage believes in a holistic approach to health: one that views the body and mind as interconnected, and stresses the patient's role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude. To aid in clients' quests, her staff utilizes advanced massage techniques such as myofascial release or precision neuromuscular therapy to relieve pain and tension. The therapist has no favorite technique, however. "The client lets us know what they need and that is what we go by," she says. "We just love to know that they leave feeling mentally [and] physically improved."

Off the beaten path and contained within the walls of a quaint, cozy house, All About You Salon & Spa welcomes and enchants ladies with rejuvenating, radiance-restoring stays. During facial treatments, the resident aestheticians proudly implement a bevy of Murad skincare products, each infused with essential elements for a range of skin types and sensitivities.

To truly knock out unneeded fine lines, guests can also delight their skin with the anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging powers of the AHA Rapid Exfoliator anti-aging facial ($95); pair it with the Intensive Wrinkle Reducer peel ($20 extra) to form a tandem that is so anti-aging, it makes Peter Pan look like a sell out.
