The staff at Natural Glo wants to provide a bronzed look without the harsh effects of UV rays. So tanning techs coat skin in a natural organic solution made with antioxidants and pure botanicals. They can also add a hydration treatment made with emollients, or an anti-aging treatment that rejuvenates skin with exotic plant extracts.
Combining a background in elementary education and more than 30 years of experience in massage, Profoundly Peaceful Massage's licensed therapist, Mary Beth Rezek, balances minds and bodies with customized massage treatments amid a stress-free environment. Minds are unwound with an one-hour Swedish massage as long, flowing strokes are sent gliding across the body, helping to improve circulation and kneading out aches. Bestowed from the deft hands of Kahuna Auntie Maile Napoleon, Rezek deftly enacts an ancient Hawaiian lomi lomi massage by commencing with a healing chant. Blending vibration, elbow, and deep-pressure work, the massage style aims to relax muscles during the one-hour session while releasing stress faster than a cheetah drives a getaway car. The session concludes with a hot-stone application and a tapping of bamboo sticks lightly across the skin.
Groom for Men's skilled scissor-wielders impose a clean, easily maintainable look on customers with a variety of salon services. Unmanageable head shrubbery gets sliced and diced into a flattering form customized to rest neatly atop skulls, joined in follicle-complementing matrimony by a shampoo, scalp massage, neck and shoulder rub, and brow and ear trim ($36). Hot towels and a lathering prep oil help reduce woolly facial hitchhikers during a straight-razor shave ($30), and a calming aftershave eases cheeks’ fears of going au natural. Shave upgrades ($10), including exfoliation, anti-aging, desensitizing, and hydration, turn a routine beard-banishing into a full-blown face vacation. Treat hands to a break from tearing steaks in half with a manicure ($15), which files, buffs, and massages fingertip keratin shields into nailbed nirvana.

Dash and Dazzle Tanning's staff escorts patrons into the MagicTan MT3000 spray-tanning system, which coats physiques in a gaze-grabbing copper sheen. Clients can assume a chosen power stance as 36 stationary spray heads blanket skin in a mist of sunless-tanning solution and aloe-based bronzer. The process takes less than a minute to outfit bodies in a tawnier suit, and like a kleptomaniac photocopier, the resulting tan acquires tone throughout the day. Alternatively, customers can settle into Dash and Dazzle's red-light-therapy bed during one month of unlimited sessions. Infrared wavelengths spelunk deep into dermal tissue to prompt collagen production, reducing fine lines and acne damage while stimulating circulation. For best results, guests are encouraged to bask in the bed's crimson glow three–four days a week for four–six weeks.
The stylists at Knick Salon and Spa cultivate an urban oasis where organic and vegan products, eco-sensitive cleaning agents, and methodical recycling practices reign. Inspired by Aveda founder Horst Rechelbacher, the stylists refuse to cosset clients with anything except safe and nutritious concoctions by companies such as Phyto, Eufora, and Intelligent Nutrients. In their chandelier-lit workspace, they blend their mastery of cutting and coloring techniques with continuing education to expand their minds and give their hair more room to grow. That commitment to nature-inspired quality extends to the spa side as well, where mani-pedis powered by essential oils, paraffin-free masks, and organic sugar scrubs bring life back to tired hands and feet. In the private massage room, therapists ply muscles with soothing bodywork made all the more relaxing by infusions of jasmine and frankincense or the warm touch of hot stones. Tired muscles also meet their match in the spa's Alpha Capsule—a dry-heat sauna that promises each client heated vibration massage, aromatherapy, and a relaxing bowl of alphabet soup.
