The Refinery’s Perfect Retreat package starts the process with a stress-melting back treatment amidst the spa's casual, zen-like décor. You’ll then have your choice of a body scrub (full-body exfoliation with Dermalogica's Body Microfoliant made of tapioca starch, oatmeal, and nut shells), body hydro-pack (Dermalogica body mask containing soy milk with apricot and lavender oils), or enzymatic sea-mud wrap (exfoliating mud with papaya enzymes and citrus oils). The Refinery carries the full line of Dermalogica products, ensuring that your skin will not have to suffer the clammy, sticky, Grandma-smelling caress of lesser lotions and crustacean-derived tinctures.
Massage therapist Craig Genereux has a diploma in relaxation: he received his training at CenterPoint Massage and Shiatsu Therapy School and Clinic. Now, he wields trained hands at a number of Minneapolis-based clinics, including Hermen Health. Shiatsu and hot-stone massages are among his services, as well as soothing hammam and japanese foot treatments.
Beauty doesn't always require sacrifice. That’s why Studio 411 partners with Zoya, whose environmentally friendly product line of 70 plus colors is Vegan-friendly and gives clients stylish looks without harming their bodies or the environment. Manicurist Joanne puts that mindset to use in her range of pampering mani-pedi treatments, which leave hands with a groomed and polished appearance that recalls losing one's keys inside a bowling-ball cleaner. Joanne can also add a lasting finish to nails with Shellac polish, which stays free of chips for up to two weeks.
When taj salon & spa’s stylists extract coloring foils, they don’t toss them in the trash. Instead, they recycle the aluminum, putting taj on a short list of local businesses that do so. This is just one of the ways the staff show how devoted they are to beautifying both the earth and the people that populate it. The members of the styling team have been trained extensively with Aveda and the International Dermal Institute to improve their hair, skin, and massage services. Other thoughtful touches that show their dedication to clients include warm towels for the face and neck during haircuts, complimentary bang trims between visits, and stylists who travel to create stunning hairdos before a wedding or between innings of a baseball game.
The aestheticians and massage therapists at Perfect Getaway Day Spa pamper clients with a lavish spread of manicures and pedicures, custom-tailored facials, and a dozen different massage styles. Swedish and deep-tissue treatments root out aches with gentle, flowing kneads or targeted pressure, and reflexology massage relieves tension throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the hands and feet. Soothing soaks and massages soften hands and feet during signature mani-pedis, and facials refresh complexions with personalized blends of products designed for any skin type, whether dry, oily, or locked in an iron mask. The spa's party packages can also transform birthday or bachelorette gatherings into full-on makeovers with combinations of massages, facials, and mani-pedis.
