Visitors to Skin Vitality pass through a waiting room furnished with a plush couch and leather chairs on their way to private, soft-toned treatment rooms bedecked with floral arrangements where they relax in preparation for one of the spa's soothing repertoire of services including massage, facials, and waxing. Clients' visages come to life under the capable hands of aestheticians during a custom facial that varies from deep-cleansing to hydrating and features products from brands such as PCA, Skin for Life, and Clayton Shagal. Clients may upgrade to a different facial for an additional cost. Patrons both male and female can turn to waxing services to remove unwanted hair from brows, arms, legs, and bikinis. Aestheticians dole out full-body pampering massage and body treatments to purge visitors' bodies of stress caused by jobs, athletic pursuits, or unsuccessfully betting on wooly worm racing.
The team at Revive Spa improves and sustains clients' health through natural methods. They utilize the Thermojet Plus body-wrap system, whose long and short infrared rays induce sweating to detoxify bodies. During each wrap, technicians place six treatments pads on stubborn areas, such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen, instigating a fat-liquefying process called thermolipolysis.
At the Duluth location, staffers can add an exfoliating sea-salt scrub akin to a good sandcastle trampling. Though not included in today's deal, this location's massage therapists can also enhance traditional Swedish, deep-tissue, or neuromuscular massages.
Chocolate, hibiscus, fruit enzymes, and pumpkin: ingredients, all, in facials and peels at Natural Balance Body Spa's new location. The professionally-trained staff of aestheticians use blends starring these natural elixirs to guide clients along a "transformational journey" and envelop them in fragrant, relaxing services. Working to reduce signs of aging including dark spots and rosacea, and to improve the tone and texture of the skin, the staff specializes in waxing, facials, and massages. They customize each service to its recipient, meaning each guest gets lots of attention and service, unlike ghosts driving their ghost cars into a carwash.
Licensed massage therapist Neil Currie doesn't just treat people, he empowers them to heal themselves.

He also offers clients tips, stretches, and exercises for managing their own pain and health at home. And he often takes his skills to sports competitions, where he revives weary athletes and worn out team mascots before, in-between, and after events.
Laura Urquhart grew up in a spa. Spa treatments were the family business, and as a young child Laura absorbed her parents' dedication to beauty and appreciation for relaxation as a crucial component of happy lives. As an adult, Laura worked to become a licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, opening Mango Bliss Spa to share her passion. Her retreat's menu is populated with treatments that she personally designed, from massages that melt tension with hot seashells to Aquabrasion facials that lift bacteria from pores with ultrasound technology. She infuses each service with organic products and offers add-ons, including her specialty, aromatherapy, to augment the sensory effect of each service more pleasantly than equipping treatment rooms with velcro sheets.
