Satin Laser Spa's technicians harness the power of light to remove almost any type of beauty-inhibiting blemish, from uninvited hair to wanted tattoos. They can help patients bid adieu to fine lines and age spots as they are escorted away during IPL photofacials or combat acne with a combination of green light, red light, and heat, and laser teeth-whitening treatments erase discoloration and graffiti left behind by vengeful spinach. Laser liposuction tightens stubborn areas and kick-starts collagen production with infrared light and radio frequencies, instigating a surge of cellular activity that helps tighten sagging skin and smooth out creases caused by cellulite deposits and powernaps on computer keyboards.
Jo's Spa & Salon is a one-stop-shop for clients seeking relaxation and beautification. During an indulgent mani-pedi, a trained aesthetician will pamper punished paws with a foot soak and exfoliation before applying a coat of polish to undull finger shingles and toe shells. Or, after an hour-long countenance-freshening facial, a massage therapist will go to work, soothing sore shoulders with muscle-melting moves for a 30-minute relaxation massage. Beauty-seekers can make themselves comfortable within Jo's funky, mustard-yellow walls thanks to a friendly staff that is always willing to listen to clients rhapsodize about beauty concerns or their burgeoning wax vegetable collections.
Anchored in an idyllic landscape gilded with rambling meadows and enchanting gardens, The Doctor’s House Inn & Spa’s Tudor-mansion-housed resort plays host to an Aveda spa that enlists pure botanical products to pamper guests with a panoply of services. A spa package grants visitors access to resort facilities, which can include dips in the hot tub and tours through the resort's pastoral environs to spot wildlife and lute-strumming bards in their natural habitats.
Patrons can also choose from one of four half-hour spa services. Thirty-minute Pure Focus facials set custom crosshairs on individual skin conditions, and an aromatic-oil scalp massage breathes life back into sapped scalps with oils and Ayurvedic techniques. The Aveda body polish evicts corporal stressors and induces euphoric musings in an exfoliating and moisturizing shower. The Elemental Nature massage is specially customized to suit individual needs. It can combine a variety of techniques including (but not limited to) Swedish, deep tissue, acupressure, prenatal, and reflexology.
Amy Goodyear worked at highbrow spas for most of her 10 years in aesthetics, but she was never quite satisfied with the customer service she observed around her. Knowing she could do better, Goodyear founded Down ’Ome Day Spa in an exceptionally hospitable location—her own home. Within her abode, she performs Gelish mani-pedis, facials, and massages from a professional-quality treatment room with candlelight and a comfy massage table. Goodyear also travels on-location to design bridal makeup, offer spa parties, and spread sunscreen across local statues’ noses.
Ocean Quest primes aquatic apprentices for the surprises below the water's surface with scuba and diving adventures. Submarine scholars who desire an H2O adventure devoid of sharks and giant unblinking eyes can dip into Scuba Discovery. Taught by knowledgeable instructors, the afternoon or evening introductory lesson instructs novices on the basics of underwater air intake while in a pool out of harm's way. The sheltered enclave creates a fun, stress-free learning environment for children and beginners still unsure of exactly how water differs from Crystal Pepsi.
Core Fitness & Spa tones and tightens patrons with a full slate of core-centric classes in the fields of Pilates, yoga, and TRX suspension training. In Pilates classes, a friendly, trained instructor leads students through conditioning exercises designed to strengthen and stabilize their body's centres while building long, lean muscles, releasing pent-up tension, and establishing proper muscle use. Hatha flow yoga, meanwhile, combines poses, breath control, and relaxation as a means of bringing bodies, minds, and the scales of justice into balance. First inspired by U.S. Navy SEALs conditioning, TRX suspension training uses a versatile set of straps dangling from the ceiling to perform hundreds of leveraged body-weight exercises, which sculpt sinews simply and effectively. Core Fitness & Spa offers morning and evening classes as well as a once-every-17-years option for cicadas. Consult the schedule for times and dates.
