Vastu is, simply put, a place to heal and reconnect the body, mind, and spirit. At this soothing wellness center in Warwick, clients can take uplifting classes and workshops, have relaxing bodywork sessions, or learn how to be well by harnessing the healing power of good nutrition, supplements, and community. In the Vastu studio, students can meditate and move at the same time during Kai Chi Do classes, sculpt muscles in Vinyasa Yoga Strength sessions, or learn to Let Go & Flow in a laid-back session devoted to linking breath with challenging asanas. Onsite massage, from Thai Yoga to aromatherapy and prenatal modalities, helps guests relax. And they can choose to have acupuncture done or even send kids off to a yoga class of their own, such as quantum mechanics for toddlers.
Shear Intensity Hair & Nail Salon is a full-service hair and nail salon that pampers its customers with beautifying services. Guests can retreat into a private pedicure room as technicians buff and polish their toes, or they can set their hands out for gel or Shellac polishes. They can also sit for hair services, such as cuts and color treatments, including highlights.
Farida's Hair Salon is a full-service beauty spot dedicated completely to hair. At this comfortable and laid-back salon, clients come in for chic haircuts and rich color services, performed with Keune products. Sunlight from the large windows spills over the leather couches and tile floor of Farida's, where licensed stylists provide special-occasion updos and paint highlights into hair.
Catering to clients’ cosmetic concerns is only half of the goal at Paradiso Day Spa. The other half is providing a complete and total escape from the stress-inducing demands of everyday life. To this end, the studio strives to create a cozy, inviting atmosphere that encourages visitors to lounge for a bit and prolong their indulgent spa experience. This is readily apparent in the spa’s relaxation room, which resembles the quaint sitting room of a stately bed and breakfast, complete with plush armchairs, a low-slung divan, and complimentary beverages and snacks.
Select clients can indulge with a refreshing aromatherapy steam shower before receiving their treatment from one of the center’s aestheticians or therapists. Staffers then get busy performing facials, which can improve skin tone and restore a youthful glow to cheekbones by using everything from antibacterial LED lights to skin-firming ultrasound technology. The massage therapists similarly address a range of concerns by employing Swedish or deep-tissue modalities as well as energy-balancing reflexology techniques.
