Standup booths, lay-down beds, and VersaSpa tanning equipment line the private treatment rooms at TanFabulous, yielding many pathways to achieving a richer shade of skin. With four tiers of UV-tanning rays and three levels of spray-tanning mist to choose from, customers can pinpoint the exact hue of bronze they desire. The higher tiers of UV beds feature upgrades to enhance your tanning experience; among these, SunBreeze triple air-conditioning systems keep temperatures cool, aromatherapy infusions soothe the senses, and facial boosters send rays to hard-to-reach spots on the face and neck. The salon’s automated VersaSpa tanning booths spritz bodies with layers of bronzing solutions and drying jets of air. The DHA-based solutions couple with anti-aging moisturizers to ensure that skin retains the color of a deep-fried onion ring without its crunchy texture.
The licensed therapists and technicians at Creative Strands Hair & Bodyworks excavate stress and instill beauty with a wide spectrum of salon and spa services. During massages, muscle manipulators call upon therapeutic Swedish and deep-tissue techniques to untie knotted muscles in shoulders, backs, and vestigial dorsal fins. Unwanted hairs succumb to swathes of warm wax, and exfoliating microdermabrasion facials leave skin as smooth as Casanova’s answering-machine greeting.
From her station amid the funky chandeliers and flowing curtains of Untamed Salon & Spa, licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician Laurie Vezina calls on more than two decades of experience to refine each face she encounters. She specializes in Xtreme Lashes lash extensions, which can give natural eyelashes length and the type of movement that rivals even the windiest of ceiling fans.
In addition to adding drama to lash lines, Laurie—who is also a skin specialist—teaches clients that a youthful complexion simply requires the right products and meticulous care. After performing an in-depth skin analysis, she buffs away fine lines and clears up blemishes with microdermabrasions, chemical peels, ultrasonic treatments, or one of her eight facial regimens.
The chaos of everyday life checks itself at the door at Massage Worcester at Invidium Salon and Spa. Skilled in a range of modalities, licensed massage therapist Amanda Bourbeau doesn’t just conjure fleeting moments of relaxation, but also helps the body heal itself from the inside out. She marries myofascial and deep-tissue therapies during regional bodywork massages that sooth and stretch sore areas and can apply localized pressure on reflex points of the hands and feet to activate natural healing processes and make tongues stick out at her will. Aside from using her gifted hands, Amanda may also call upon heated basalt stones or paraffin wraps to help assuage aches and pains.
