The wellness wizards at Sweet Serenity chase away muscular aches and pains with relaxing massages performed with a focus on guest comfort and tranquility. Hot-stone massages use thermally charged rocks to impart warmth deep into bodies, melting stress and thawing ingested frozen pizzas. Once muscles relax, the therapist's nimble fingers work out back-bound kinks and neck-held stiffness, increasing range of motion and leaving massagees delightfully energized. To keep treatments customizable, guests can choose between a 60- or 90-minute session based on busy schedules and level of muscly achiness. Each serene treatment takes place in one of the center's private rooms, which ensconce guests in comfort with gentle warmth, soft music, and ghosts that like to cuddle.
Mimosa Salon and Spa's name is derived from the mimosa tree, whose lithe branches support lime-green leaves and pompom-esque blooms. But its connection to nature doesn't end there. Stylists employ natural Aveda products, such as texturizing lotions crafted with organic marshmallow root and natural-aroma-infused shampoos, during soothing salon services. Spa treatments also use plant-derived products. Aestheticians customize facials with Aveda's Green Science and Outer Peace lines, and body treatments include exfoliation with Dead Sea salts and hydrating organic coconut wraps.

At Downtown Chic, skillful staff unknot tension with therapeutic massages and rehydrate dry mugs with a signature facial. Spines may enter the spa's taupe-hued massage room like stern, unbending iron, but the hands of a certified massage therapist transform even the most ornery vertebrae into pliant clumps of sticky rice. Those desirous of refreshed face-skin can undergo a 45-minute signature facial, where dermal surfaces receive a thorough sudsing, a gentle exfoliation, and a moisturizing treatment that makes visages glow like dew-covered disco balls. A 45-minute stress-relief massage follows, in which a massage therapist seeks to drain tension from the back, neck, shoulders, and feet.
Judith treats patients using the John F. Barnes Myofascial Release Approach, a method developed to release bodies from painful pressure caused by tight connective tissues. During each session, therapist Judith Glennon uses her 13 years of experience in the technique to gently works muscles without using lotions or creams, allowing her fingertips to detect areas that need attention. The process allows the connective tissues that surround muscles and bones to elongate and relax, helping to soothe issues ranging from everyday stress to fibromyalgia. With continued and consistent treatment, myofascial release can not only relieve everyday stress but create structural changes thus relieving many chronic issues that people experience.
