Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Stationed within the soothing confines of Primary Care Chiropractic, Serenity Massage’s team of licensed massage therapists banishes stress and promotes relaxation with seven distinct massage modalities. Swedish massages melt knotted muscles into relaxed ooze and reenergize limbs with firm yet gentle pressure. The deep-tissue massage locates muscles off the beaten track, attempting to break up pockets of tension, toxins, and long-forgotten beef jerky that bones were saving for later. To take relaxation to the next level, clients can add on a scalp, foot, or hydro-massage treatment to any massage or simply take in the surroundings while sipping a complimentary cup of tea.
The stylists at A Perfect Image Salon want to make the world a more beautiful place, and they work toward that goal one haircut at a time. They offer a variety of services that focus on mane maintenance, including haircuts, keratin smoothing treatments, and color services. Clients can also step into the salon for a mani-pedi or facial wax.
A former Miss Seattle, board-certified physician Dr. Amy Miller knows firsthand how important it is to feel confident in your own skin. Having always possessed an interest in skincare and a desire to help others feel beautiful, she traded her pageant gown for a white lab coat and now spends much of her time training other physicians in the use of medical lasers. At St. Louis Skin Solutions, Dr. Miller helms a small staff that includes a licensed aesthetician and supervises all skin treatments, including laser hair and tattoo removal, Botox, and cellulite reduction. Beyond cosmetic enhancement, staff use their skincare expertise to screen for skin cancer, and can also harness laser energy to remove spider veins that don’t respond to being slapped with a shoe.
The staff at Pure Harmony Day Spa unleashes an arsenal of naturally derived products during each beauty and wellness ritual. Scented towels, lava stones, and essential oils flavor massage treatments, and facials and chemical peels harvest healthy complexions with doses of alpha-hydroxy acids and botanical extracts. Organic wax adheres to unwanted body bristle, and therapists cloak bodies with seaweed and sea salt to imbue skin with moisture. Upon check-in, spa clients may visit Pure Harmony’s complimentary steam room before they luxuriate in a lounge void of cell-phone beeps and cooing carrier pigeons. Inside khaki-colored treatment rooms, relaxation recipients alight on contoured beds, and salon visitors perch upon ivory-hued pedicure chairs bolstered by whirlpool foot tubs.
Doctor of Chiropractic Phillip Meyers and his wife, professional counselor Emily Meyers, take a holistic approach to health that combines advanced technology with traditional chiropractic and massage techniques. Dr. Meyers, for example, employs the gentle adjustments of chiropractic plus kinesiology to relieve ailments that range from headaches to back pain. Though he relies partly on personal consultations, a subconscious computerized integrative operating system—SCIO—helps him diagnose concerns. For their part, the center’s experienced massage therapists keep busy relaxing tension and loosening muscular knots with talent unheard of since Houdini’s final escape from Earth.
