Premier Spa & Wellness's staff doesn't use synthetic panacea to help their clients achieve better health and wellness. Instead, they rely on the body's self-healing mechanisms and natural healing. To that end, the aestheticians have tailored a service list of massages and scrubs that free the body of unwanted substances through Gaia-given processes. From basic Swedish massage to reflexology and aromatherapy, Premier's massage therapists draw on any modality they need to bring relaxation to their clients. All-natural sugars, sea minerals, and clays coat the body during the polishes and scrubs, exfoliating the skin and imbuing it with moisture and nutrients. Regardless of the treatment, the spa creates an atmosphere of tranquility with soothing aromas and soft music throughout the space.
During each beauty-enhancing salon or spa service, Carlos Lissimore Salon's appearance artisans draw upon years of expertise from prestigious training programs, such as Vidal Sassoon and the Toni & Guy Hairdressing Academy. Inside the European-concept salon's chic setting, they employ products from Wella and Purvana during hair services that run the gamut from precision cuts to keratin treatments to hair colorings as vibrant as a peacock following a decisive paintball-battle loss. Stylists augment the mane attraction with an assortment of relaxing spa services, such as complexion-renewing facials and waxings and tension-releasing massages, that help bodies look and feel their best.
For more than 20 years, Therapeutic Massage Centre’s Ted Schulte has untangled muscular striations to relieve soreness and tension. He set up his practice in a house-like structure framed with cool gray siding. Here, Ted kicks off new client relationships by learning about them via a health sheet and a consultation. These tools help him discover clients' specific ailments and goals, whether it's relief from a sports injury or escape from chronic pain, which is the next sequel to Escape from Alcatraz. Ted then customizes each session by culling from myriad techniques, including Swedish, myofascial-relief, and deep-tissue massage.
At Day Spa Nirvana, calming music and the gentle sound of running water provide the soundtrack to moments of deep relaxation for both body and mind. Inside private treatment rooms, massage therapists don their skintight superhero costumes to fight pain and tension with massage techniques including Swedish, deep tissue, and hot stone. Aestheticians delicately perform facials tailored for a variety of skin types including sensitive and problem skin. During all spa treatments, which also include foot massage and waxing, the staff employs products from brands including Éminence handmade organic skincare of Hungary.
Shamara Long believes that her massages and organic facials are more than just temporary escapes from life’s daily stresses. A licensed therapist and the owner of Serenity Place Massage Solutions, Long views her spa’s treatments as catalysts for healthy lifestyles. She draws on her committed faith-based background to rejuvenate and replenish, in her own words, "the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies."
To best nurture these four aspects of being, Long relies on an extensive treatment menu that targets the skin as well as its underlying muscles. Her bodywork specialties include Swedish, prenatal, and Thai massages as well as a Serenity stretch treatment, whose stretching and compression exercises help athletes to run and cartwheel over goalposts more effectively. Organic massage lotions and oils aid in these treatments, just as professional Éminence Organic Skin Care products enhance the slate of facials and peels. Although Long’s spa blossoms with warm lighting and earthy tones conducive to spiritual healing, she can also haul her massage table to bridal parties and corporate gatherings.
With its plush leather couches and chairs, rich mahogany tables, antique-style lamps, and dark rugs embroidered with leaf patterns, the relaxation room at Invigo Day Spa resembles a cozy den. It’s a place where guests waiting for a massage, facial, or body scrub go to unwind before their treatments and sip a cup of Octavia Tea Company's loose-leaf relaxation teas. Once visitors leave this calming room, they're led into the capable hands of one of the experienced massage therapists and aestheticians for further relaxation.
Using products from the all-natural Pevonia Botanica skincare line, the beauty experts perform 15 facials and peel treatments designed to treat issues ranging from dehydrated skin to clogged pores. They also shroud bodies in wraps infused with water lilies, green tea, mango, and aromatic Moor mud, and massage therapists knead tension from muscles using seven modalities. Each massage includes aromatherapy, hot towels, and at least three compliments about your hair.
