The welcoming staff of Sassy Nailz and Tropical Sun Tan Spa aim to cultivate a Zen-like tranquility of soothing aromas, relaxing services, and placid surroundings. OPI polishes buttress nail services that support the habit of scratching initials into dried pavement with both durable shellac polishes and hearty, artificial gel nails. The staff pampers bodies head to toe, from rejuvenating facials to body sugaring that depilates hair with a chemical-free blend of sugar and citrus. Harmony with nature comes full circle with variable levels of UV tanning beds designed to mimic the sun's various moods.
Knead to Unwind’s registered massage therapists customize their massages according to each client's needs with a blend of deep-tissue, relaxation, and trigger-point techniques. The two-storey clinic has a natural aesthetic, with walls in varying shades of green. Five private treatment rooms set the stage for relaxation with soft lighting, soothing landscapes, and low, cushioned beds that give therapists more leverage to work tension out of backs or locked safes.
At Lash Love, clients unwind in luxe leather recliners. The stylists hover above, gently attaching one extension to each natural lash with hypoallergenic adhesive. Extensions come in different lengths, depending on whether or not clients want them to do double-duty as eyeglass dusters. Customers who want to linger in the lavender-drenched spa can stay for a facial, a body waxing session, or another spa treatment.
Affordable Day Spa's beauty professionals pamper clients with relaxing spa services such as facials, body polishes, and nailcare. Using paraffin-wax treatments, they soften and soothe backs, hands, and feet. To enhance massages, heated stones are used to deliver more effective heat therapy than rolling around on a floor made of heating pads.
When Dr. Marthin Botha was studying pharmaceuticals in his home country of South Africa and earning his PhD in biochemistry in Switzerland, he was originally trying to become a medical doctor. He changed his focus after he found that he preferred the art of healing over the prescription of medicines. He went to Germany to study naturopathic medicine, charting a new path that would lead him to China to study the country’s traditional practices and to India to study ayurvedic herbal medicine. He brings this wealth of knowledge to Miracle Health Network, where he helps patients create treatment plans based on a 45-minute questionnaire they can take online or in the office.
He also oversees a staff that includes several experienced massage therapists. Their signature treatment, the Next Level massage, requires that two staffers work on a single patient; as one massages the patient's shoulders, back, and neck, the other works on the feet, calves, and kickstand that pops out from the calves. Staff members also perform ear candling and create weight-loss programs that incorporate energy-balancing treatments and whole-body-vibration therapy, which forges muscular strength and fires the metabolism.
Beauty is all about the small things. The team at Total Wrapture Medi Spa knows that, whether they're passing out treats in the waiting room, lighting soy candles, or bringing new technology into their treatments. Those pieces of new technology might include a Skintel melanin, for example, which allows them to calibrate lasers perfectly to skin. Or beta hydroxy acids, peptides, and botanicals added to peels and facials. Those treatments, as well as waxes, lash extensions, and massages take place in soothing rooms, filled with the flickering of candles and the burble of an indoor waterfall.
