The multitalented staff at Utah Health and Wellness aim to cover all the bases of their clients’ beauty regimens. An aesthetician gently refurbishes faces during chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. For a more pronounced wrinkle releaser on face-skin, experts inject Botox or iron faces on a low setting. They further along faces’ beauty with the removal of upper-lip fuzz or the application of eye-catching lash extensions. Guests can cap off spa days with mani-pedis and a round of patty-cake with the nail technician.
All too often, a massage studio can feel like a revolving door operation, shuffling clients in and out as quickly as possible. Not at Earth Angels Massage & Bodywork.

Romantic twosomes can abandon their stresses in tandem with a 60-minute couple's massage administered by a pair of therapists.
