My Spa's team of expert stylists, massage therapists, manicurists, and aestheticians is dedicated to delivering high-quality, professional beauty treatments while establishing personal relationships with its clientele. Cuts include a shampoo and blow-dry (starting at $40–$50 for women and $24–28 for men), and visitors looking to prep for that special event can indulge in an expert updo (starting at $50). Backs living in constant fear of crack-stepping can relax with one of several massage options: reflexology ($45 for 30 minutes), mini stress relieving ($40 for 30 minutes), and a chair massage ($20 for 15 minutes) delivered by sentient recliners possessing the most expert, gentle kneading skills and the gift of speech.
For the massage therapists at The Bailey Institute Of Muscular Therapy, touch equals medicine for the body and soul. The team tailors sessions to each client?s needs, fusing techniques such as deep-tissue therapy with medical massage to relax muscles and promote healing. Marathoners, triathletes, and New Orleans Saints team members flock to the facility for sports massages, which can boost flexibility, enhance performance, and help prevent injuries.
Stemming from the belief that the mind, body, and spirit are interconnected, L'Aromatique pampers all three with a diverse array of massage modalities. Licensed massage therapists can alleviate chronic pain with flowing Swedish techniques or access the aches in lower connective tissues with trigger point and deep-tissue therapy. Clients may also peruse L'Aromatique's line of wellness products ranging from candles and incense to bubble baths and moisturizing body butters.
Surrounded by the waterfall and tree displays of The Wellness Experience's tropically themed studio, guests begin to relax before they've even chosen a spa service. The calming decor buries stressful thoughts beneath soothing sounds and sensations?the holistic goal that guides each pampering option. From body wraps to hydrotherapy to deep-tissue massage, the treatments strive to release tension from both mind and body. The Wellness Experience staff believe that putting one's self at ease opens a window to better health, simultaneously shutting the door that admits ulcer fairies.
Since opening as a Paul Mitchell Focus salon in 2007, the team of hair artists at Mariposa Salon and Spa has styled locks for the glossy pages of New Orleans Bride magazine and CUE magazine.
Celeb-inspired styles let clients walk out with sleek, smooth, and straight locks or the loose, beachy waves usually only achieved by supermodels living in sandcastles. The stylists also battle the New Orleans humidity with blow-drying techniques and GKhair hair straightening at their blowdry bar. At their makeup and lash bar, the salon uses products from Glominerals, a pharmaceutical-grade skincare and makeup line.
One on One Day Spa and Salon aestheticians Lynnette Jones, Terilyn Young, and Kimberly Williams relocated their practice to a new Bullard Avenue digs in April 2012. The trio's spa menu continues to pamper bodies from head to toe with indulgent products such as Dead Sea salt and enzyme-based exfoliants. Massages comfort tender, worn-out muscles with Swedish strokes, deep-tissue kneads, or the gentle pressure of warm stones. Manicures and pedicures pamper feet and groom hands until they're properly prepared to high-five the president.
