Amadeus Spa's accomplished bite blanchers banish stains from teeth using the safe and speedy SpaWhite express system. Foam strips laden with a gentle yet powerful peroxide formula ensconce each row of tawny tusks, working in tandem with a cool blue LED light to dropkick stains caused by aging, smoking, or gargling with paint. Over the course of 15 minutes, teeth turn two to four shades whiter, helping patients obtain a younger-looking smile without the use of gooey whitestrips or bulky bleaching trays.
Carlton Massage Therapy blends relaxation and pain relief into a body-relaxing mélange of muscle-manipulating bliss. In the one-hour candlelight duo massage, the skillful fingers of two therapists liquefy the body-locked stress of two massagees in a candlelit room, creating an ideal environment for a couple's romantic afternoon or a bonding session between a comically handcuffed-together cop and criminal. In the solo, 90-minute Swedish massage, muscles relax in privacy while hot-towel compresses gently warm cold feet with steamy heat. The one-hour satin skin-exfoliation massage uses Thentix Touch of Honey products to gently lift away the outer layer of dead, lifeless skin, revealing the smooth cells underneath for a slathering of body polish. Hot steamed towels impart a blissful warmth to relaxed bodies, and a shower is available post-massage to rinse residue from newly radiant skin. All three massages come with a Dead Sea salt foot scrub with hot towel compresses, helping tootsies get past the low self-esteem that makes them act out at business meetings.
"Before I became a licensed massage therapist I was very ignorant of the positive effects of massage," admits Tori Crews. "I never really took good care of my body." But learning human physiology and working with clients has changed all that. Now she makes it her daily goal to remind clients that they only have one body, and they should take care of it. To accomplish this, Tori offers treatments ranging from Swedish massage to deep-tissue work, available with add-ons such as aromatherapy and hot stones.
Growing up on the shores of the Black Sea in Romania, Maria Suciu found herself surrounded by beauty. Her appreciation for aesthetics was not only inspired by the breathtaking beaches, therapeutic resorts, and glassy waters—which are believed to have curative powers—but also by her mother, who taught her how to fetchingly care for her skin, hair, and nails. After years of helping others strengthen their businesses as a public-relations adviser, Suciu shifted careers paths and traveled to America to share all she had learned about inner and outer wellness.
Suciu is now the owner and managing aesthetician of Callatis Spa, where she uses European-style techniques and organic, herbal formulas to pamper skin and boost outer allure. Callatis, which translates to the most beautiful, was the name of an ancient Greek colony that once inhabited the same shores that nurtured Suciu’s passion for performing cosmetic treatments. As a reiki master, Suciu also aims to balance the body and mind, targeting negative energy caused by palling around with delinquent magnets. Soothing fragrances and relaxing music permeate the spa's interior, which is small and intimate for highly personalized services.
Upstairs from the bustling hair studio and spa, The Wine Bar at Solaire offers a quiet respite amid lush curtains and soft lighting.
