Two and a half acres of California countryside sprawl before visitors at Heavenly Valley Retreat, setting the stage for the sublime relaxation sessions the team administers in the form of poolside and indoor massages and energy therapies. Counseling and nutrition services further unwind clients, ensuring each guest leaves free of emotional and physical tension.
Inside this modern salon and spa, staffers reinvigorate clients' hairstyles and moods with precision haircuts and spa services such as facials, mani-pedis, and massages bolstered with essential oils. Perfectionists when it comes to hair, stylists finish precision haircuts with a dry-cutting technique, which gives them optimum control over the final look without spiking hairspray with super glue. They commence worry-free hair visits with a stress-melting scalp massage and conclude with a styling session, during which they teach clients how to re-create looks with Paul Mitchell products.
Though Magic Brow Threading Salon's staff specializes in making eyebrows look their best—using an ancient threading technique—the salon also offers other beauty services, including facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion. As skincare specialists, the licensed estheticians swear by Dermalogica products, which are available for purchase at the salon. Magic Brow also purveys handbags, fashion accessories, and eyebrow powder and gel.
Aesthetician and PCA Skin certified professional Heather Fowler at Renew Skin Therapy begins every session—whether a rejuvenating facial or a chemical peel—with a skin analysis. From there, she settles on the proper cleansers to tackle each client’s specific skin woes, whether the hope is to mask the signs of aging, quench dry spots, or reverse the hexes that cursed clients with chameleon skin. Each client is sent home with a tailored home regimen to optimize and prolong their facial treatment. Also offering waxing services to their repertoire, many of the spa’s chosen effective PCA Skin and Skin Fitness Therapy products are infused with natural scents and ingredients such as pumpkin, aloe vera, cranberry, and agave margarita, many of which are organic and environmentally friendly.
The I-ACT certified technicians at Alternative Wellness Day Spa steer clients toward stronger health with holistic treatments including infrared body wraps, massages, and colon-hydrotherapy sessions. Shawna, the colon hydrotherapist, entered the field over a decade ago after forays with the treatment produced a significant uptick in her own health. She now works alongside a massage therapist with over 1,000 hours of tension-battling experience to improve the health and well-being of their clients.
Wine-tinted curtains separate the comfortable lounge area from the private colon-hydrotherapy treatment rooms, where guests recline in specialized seats designed to ensure comfort and restore healthy gastrointestinal function.
