In his early days as a massage therapist, Sean Struxness was struck by the stark contrasts in quality between high-end and low-end spas, noticing a large gap between the two. He founded The Massage Spot to fill that gap, partly because he no longer wanted to mow the gap's out-of-control grass. Though it forgoes the locker rooms and showers that full day spas may offer, Struxness's mini day spa doesn't skimp on the tranquil atmosphere, as it features flickering candles, soothing music, and a relaxing zen area. The service menu isn't lacking, either; The Massage Spot's team of professionals performs haircuts and deep conditionings, nine types of facials, spa pedicures with aromatherapy soaks, and Western and Eastern styles of massage therapy.
Carolyn Peters brings more than two decades of prettifying prowess to her ultramodern menu of noninvasive skincare treatments, epidermal therapy, and facials. Beautiful Image’s innovative, nonsurgical Facial Sculpting treatment firms up aging façades in one hour, unleashing a brigade of microcurrents deep beneath the skin’s acupunctural hotspots on a covert mission to boost collagen production and escape before being caught by microscopic police. Treatments commence with a gentle cleansing and lactic peel before a soothing support lotion serves as a conduit for a skin-spanning wand—a space-age tool packed with myriad nourishing peptides. The painless procedure demands no downtime and visibly reduces wrinkles and acne and amplifies healthy hydration and circulation to beget a visage more alluring than Cupid’s rock ballads. Results will begin to show after a single treatment, though multiple treatments and follow-up appointments are recommended for the best results.
At ZENKA, fusty fingers and petrified pavement pounders receive beautifying and refreshing treatments using all-natural and organic products. Shimmy up to the manicure bar and sip a glass of champagne as dusty digits prepare to recover from the everyday wear and tear of smart-phone pummeling. The luxurious 24 karat treatment starts with a gold leaf soak, meticulous grooming, and exfoliating natural gel peel for both hand and feet, while tired toes are treated extra sweetly with an invigorating sugar scrub. Next, newly softened phalanges will get a moisturizing mask, with a hot towel wrap to seal in hydration, followed by a soothing massage that gilds extremities with pure gold lotion and a hot lava shell. Once hands and feet have soaked up enough gold to be worth their weight, they can choose a final ornamentation of either a shine buff or perfect polish that will leave them priceless in the eyes of appendage appraisers.
Oasis Thai Massage & Spa incorporates characteristics of popular massage techniques with traditional Thai methods to deliver whole-body relaxation. The body scrub kicks off the rejuvenating session by exfoliating dead skin cells, then relaxes bodies with hot essential oils that double as a source of aromatherapy. As the oils seep in and hydrate skin canvases, the procedure seamlessly switches gears to the combination massage. The massage therapist's appendages execute routines sourced from traditional Thai, Swedish, and deep-tissue massage. The hybrid mishmash of techniques also incorporates aspects of acupressure, passive yoga therapy, and reflexology to help clients restore their energy and attain the ability to scratch any part of their back with their mind.
The skincare experts at Kareen Aesthetics specialize in facial peels, whose chemicals exfoliate away dull surfaces to reveal the dewier, brighter complexions hiding just beneath. Accordingly, their arsenal of peels is extensive: there are name-brand peels, like those by Jessner and TCA, medical-grade VI peels, and peels designed to accomplish specific beauty goals. They even stock body peels, which treat skin south of the neck to leave wings and tails looking much younger. Peels aren't the only game in town, of course; visitors can also opt for antioxidant skin therapy, microdermabrasion, or an LED facial. Whether they're spotlighting skin with antioxidants, light, peels, or diamonds, technicians take time to keep clients relaxed and let them savor their moment of pampering.
