From the funky zebra-print chairs to the shabby-chic console tables, Avalon Spa creates an atmosphere that’s at once stylish and homey. Within this soothing oasis, aestheticians come armed with GlyMed Plus skincare products during nine types of facials, each designed to ease specific woes such as rosacea, fine lines, or acne. Massage therapists turn to hot-stone and prenatal techniques to unwind bodies, ushering in relaxation with aromatherapy oils and the gentle wave of air-traffic-control wands. Nail technicians sit before leather pedicure thrones, where they decorate digits with Zoya polish or CND Shellac and soften the surrounding skin with hydrating moisture masks.
Inside a private treatment room adorned with shelves of clean, white towels, massage oils, and medical charts, licensed massage therapist Kristy Kelley kneads away muscular tension with targeted modalities. A deep-tissue massage specialist, Kelley tailors sessions to individuals' comfort levels, varying pressure as needed, applying gentle heat to loosen muscles, and relieving tendons tired from long days of work and bench-pressing the office vending machine. Additionally, Kelley performs relaxing Swedish strokes; applies smooth, heated stones during hot-stone massages; and soothes the inner ear of pain and itching with warm wax during ear-coning sessions.
Massage therapists understand the importance of keeping muscles happy. At Natural Living Massage and Wellness he keeps bodies ready for feats of athleticism or everyday work, healing through multiple massage modalities, including craniosacral therapy.
Upon graduating from chiropractic school together in 1998, Doctors of Chiropractic Drew and Scottie Rae Lawrence pursued two very different professional paths. Drew, a preferred team chiropractor for the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock and world-class MMA fighters, relied on his training in nine different chiropractic techniques to tend to spines. Scottie Rae used her focus in anatomy to head women’s weight-loss and exercise facilities.
Today, the husband-and-wife duo oversees HealthSource of Tulsa, a clinic where Drew and Scottie Rae both perform chiropractic adjustments and weight-control treatments, including B12 injections and removing all the carbs from bread. Their cosmetic treatments include laser cellulite reduction, a process that uses laser light to contour bodies and shape curves, and in their spa, a licensed aesthetician performs body wraps and microdermabrasion.
The team of licensed aestheticians at The Skin and Body Spa has a variety of ways to help guests relax and feel pampered. They massage physiques in styles from Swedish and deep tissue to reflexology. The relaxing heat of hot stones helps melt away stress, while sport massages help athletes return to peak performance. They also polish nails during manicures and pedicures, and tend to lashes during eyelash extensions. For facials they have one strict rule: no pore-clogging ingredients are allowed near a client's face, leading to facials that incorporate ingredients from seaweed to electrical pulses. The spa-style organic seaweed facial hydrates skin and fights off acne with the same ingredient that keeps sea life blemish-free. The anti-aging ultrasonic facial, on the other hand, minimizes wrinkles with pulses of microcurrents, which prompt the skin to produce more collagen.
