Exhale Spa seeks to transform its clientele inside and out. The founding team of fitness professionals and aestheticians sought to create an environment where they could empower visitors with pampering spa treatments, invigorating fitness classes, and lifestyle education, helping clients attain a sense of control and holistic balance. Now with 19 locations across 11 cities, Exhale Spa and its signature services have earned mentions in numerous national publications, including People magazine, the New York Times, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Exhale's signature Core Fusion classes incorporate dance-inspired stretches, yoga poses, and Pilates exercises into total-body workouts that build long, lean limbs and sturdy abdominal muscles over time. For an even more varied workout, the instructors introduce boot-camp techniques, cardio exercises, or multiplication tables to select sessions. Yoga classes present a similar amount of breadth and variety, drawing inspiration from a number of introspective and physically oriented styles. To help hasten physical transformations, nutrition and wellness coaches teach attendees about the impacts of diet. These sessions build an awareness of healthy eating habits through custom meal plans and by teaching clients how to identify the edible parts of a fruit basket.
Many of the center's traditional spa services seek to inspire confidence. Facials pamper and refine skin using everything from green tea and fruit extracts to microcurrent technology, and mani-pedis revitalize digits before glazing nails with a vibrant new coat of color. Bodywork treatments look beyond physical relaxation and focus on holistic concerns. Massage therapists can use Eastern or Western modalities to soothe overstressed musculature, and acupuncture treatments and reiki sessions jump-start natural healing processes by encouraging the free flow of inner energies.
Indulge Salon and Day Spa offers a mélange of spa services within its sprawling and serene confines. Led by owner and movie-makeup artist Stacy Brewer McLarty, a skilled squad of professionals lies in wait to pamper patrons. The 60-minute microdermabrasion facial is a non-invasive yet effective method of getting up close and personal with pores. A trained technician unleashes an exfoliating treatment that collides with stale skin cells, which are shattered and swept away to reveal the ravishing, rosy glow inherent to the human face. Although this simple, nearly painless procedure generally requires no down time, some may experience short-term redness and flaking. Whether prepping for an important event or seeking improved aerodynamic flow during porpoise races, faces can find their heart's desire thanks to microdermabrasion.
Licensed aesthetician Jacqueline Dube expresses her passion for restoring natural beauty through a host of pampering spa services. A non-invasive microdermabrasion treatment uses the gentle patter of fine crystals and a light suction to admonish age spots and excavate layers of dead skin soil, unearthing a rejuvenated sheen and stores of buried jellybeans. After a simple 30-minute treatment, skin feels smoother, and compliments penetrate the outer layers of derma more easily.
With a Groupon in hand, you can book an appointment with one of the master hair shamans at Gasoline Alley to snip and charm the most distraught bristles, frizzies, and Medusa head-snakes. Gasoline Alley's stylists can sense your innermost hair-yearnings—no matter how straight, curly, short, or long—and will lovingly direct their careful scissors in tune with your thoughts and dreams, letting the creative forces flow wildly onto your scalp to transform that rebellious young mop top into a polished, well-behaved new 'do. Afterward, in the streets, you might find that your magnificent mane busts the binds of its bowler hat and leaps into sunshine, dappling the dark alleyways of careless coiffeurs.
When aesthetician Talita Pinto and her team look at a shelf of skincare products, they know just which one to use. At Cynthia's Salon and Day Spa, they apply this know-how to help clients look and feel beautiful. When clients want to repair sun damage, they reach for vitamin C. When they want relief from acne, they call upon fruit acids and natural enzymes. Sometimes they employ advanced technology, such as microdermabrasion, to deliver more dramatic results. Like other top estheticians and those who really really want to learn how to unscramble a Rubik's Cube, Talita and her team sharpen their skills by pursuing specialized education.
