Woods and florid gardens fill the grounds of Country Charm OKC, edging up against the spa?s gravel drive. Leaves rustle with the breeze as wind chimes ring out from the courtyard through the quiet air, beginning to untangle clients? frazzled neurons and muscles before they even walk through the front door.
Inside, Country Charm?s diverse roster of services focuses on holistic wellness, offering skincare, whole-body, and spa packages that soothe the mind, body, and spirit. Skin care techs resolve epidermal angst with mud or seaweed wraps and salt or sugar scrubs that exfoliate dead skin cells and remnants of to-do lists written in magic marker. With more than 15 years experience, massage therapist Jeni lulls clients into serenity with her relaxation massages and deep tissue massages, and with 17 years experience
therapist Johanna delves deep into tissues to extricate muscular issues with a firm but gentle touch or use reflexology. The center also offers specialty services such as pregnancy massages, hot stones, sea weed body wraps, and sports massages with stretching, and pampering. Between services, clients are welcome to soak feet in the whirlpool while taking in calming views of flower gardens, a gazebo, and stunning sunsets.
Sun Spa’s waxing wizard Tristen Soltero and her crew of highly trained depilitators can wax away dermis wool and cutis coppice with two Brazilian sessions (a $50 value each). Once your bikini region is so Brazilian that your hips can speak passable Portuguese to one another, you’ll achieve a pelvic thrust that really drives them insane in time for a summer’s worth of Rocky Horror Picture Show midnight screenings.
Licensed Massage Therapist Steven Benoit liberates muscles from nagging pain and enduring stress during 60- and 90-minute deep-tissue untangling sessions. Reminiscent of truffle hogs in a European forest, Steven’s skilled fingers sniff out knots with ease and uncover tension buried deep beneath tattoos of William Shatner. He then applies meticulous pressure to troubled spots to dissipate pain and boost blood flow, ensuring that patrons return to the world feeling as fresh and loose as a ripe tomato on the vine.

Q&A with the Owner
Do you offer your customers any extra perks?
Water, recommendation card for future treatments with discount, samples of product used for treatment, and stretches they can use to help cope with everyday stress.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part of my job is being able to relieve customers of their everyday stress. Everyone has a unique physique with different ailments that can be relieved by therapeutic massage. By creating a treatment plan for our clients at an affordable price, they can rest assured that everyday life will be less stressful. Although massage does not take place of a physician's diagnoses, it does serve as a great alternative.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
Every client's reaction is important to me. I love seeing clients leave happy, and it never gets old. That is my ultimate validation that what I do makes a difference and that massage truly helps.
There's nothing manlier than a well-groomed physique. That's the view espoused by ManXscape, which pampers clients in a guy-friendly sports-bar-inspired atmosphere. Beer signs and diamond-plate metal bedeck the walls, providing a rugged contrast to trays of nail files and footbaths that appear beside leather pedicure thrones. The temporary kings seated there are tended to by a team of aestheticians and nail technicians specially trained to meet males' skincare, waxing, and nail-grooming needs. The onsite bar, meanwhile, serves heady pours of draft beer, fostering friendly conversations about the strangely appropriate spelling of the word manicure.

The fact that he's outfitted his studio with soft lights and other stress-reducing accouterments is only a plus. You'll have to stay awake to enjoy those, though?Walter has been known to put his clients to sleep with his gentle strokes and kneads.
