A trio of beauty veterans oversees services at Accolades Salon Spa, making clients feel at ease as a team of experienced stylists, aestheticians, and nail techs performs pampering services inside the Highland Park beauty haven. Stylists improve coifs with precision cuts and straightening treatments using Aveda and Clean Enhanced Organics products. Clients reclining in the spa's private treatment rooms enjoy brow tints, eyelash extensions, and custom massages expertly executed by aestheticians who pack their beauty belts full of seven Arigato skincare products, which are chemical-free and only contain a maximum of four ingredients.
Back on the salon floor, nail techs embellish hands and feet with organic mani-pedis that sheathe fingertips and toes with colorful layers of OPI polishes and CND base- and top coats. Feet wading in the warm waters of a pedi throne basin can take their time as the chair's massage and heat settings melt back muscles into pools of butter. Accolade also provides man-centric services such as hot-towel shaves, as well as advanced cosmetic injections performed by an onsite doctor.
Healing starts from the inside out. That is what the trained hydrotherapists at ClearWater Colonics preach as they keep bodies healthy through detoxifying colonics, spa treatments, and healing energy therapies. Colonics aid the natural cleansing processes of the liver, kidneys, and digestive tract by gently removing impacted matter and impurities using a continuous flow of UV-filtered water. Each session on the Colenz open-system machine?which uses disposable hoses and speculums?encourages a better-functioning colon and can also help decrease bloating, headaches, and fatigue. The clinic also provides less invasive detox treatments, including an aloe vera clay body mask, a mineral soak for the hands and feet, and jikiden reiki sessions, which restore depleted energy levels using an ancient hands-on technique and a replacement set of AA batteries.
