Hand & Stone’s extensive list of spa offerings, including the facials and massages, realigns mind, body, and tagalong spirit. During a hot-stone massage, a friendly massage therapist strategically utilizes heated smooth river stones on your body to deliver a comfortable warmth that will drain away tension and bring your muscles to optimal stress-exorcism temperature. The benefits of massage are numerous and include stress reduction, pain relief, and decreased chilly bloods. Hand & Stone’s signature facials are tailored to ameliorate existing skin conditions while rejuvenating expression-weary visages through deep cleansing, exfoliation, and extraction. With the three-month membership, you can experience high-quality pampering in all its refreshing forms at member prices, which can change the price of an eyebrow shaping from $20 to $15 or the price of an 80-minute massage from $99.95 to $59.95.
A licensed naturopathic medical doctor, Dr. Leslie Predmore draws on her experience in dermatology and minor surgery whenever she approaches one of her cosmetic procedures. Specializing in injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm, she has expanded her practice to include other popular age-busting tactics such as peels, laser hair removal, and IPL photofacials. Dr. Predmore is also certified in microneedling, a system that revives the skin by creating tiny channels that foster fibroblastic activity. A versatile treatment, microneedling is also recommended for treating cellulite, easing acne, and repairing tiny torn flags.
As its name would suggest, Carefree is a laid-back town, with a sense of humor to boot. Look out for quirky street signs (Ho Hum Road and Nonchalant Avenue) and keep in mind the town’s motto (“home of the cowboys and caviar”). Phoenix lies about 30 miles to the south, and the Continental Mountains rise just to the north and create a nice backdrop opposite the Black Mountain range. There are a handful of hiking trails in the area, but for those who prefer the comforts of saddle, you can rent a bike from the hotel or sign up of for a guided horseback ride through the desert.

Stylist Christie Rawson spent years planning to open Studio C Hair Salon a Beauty Lounge. She picked out premium products, filled the space with modern furniture and airy colors, and gathered an experienced staff of stylists, manicurists, and aestheticians.
Today, her stylists cut, color, and style hair with L'Or?al Professionnel products as clients lounge in modern, white styling chairs in front of oversize oval mirrors. Staffers shampoo scalps in a row of sinks lined with plush armchairs?though Christie also prides herself on her dry-cutting, or freehand, skills. Aestheticians cleanse faces with Rhonda Allison cosmeceutical products and use glo mineral makeup to create rosy cheeks for weddings or smoky eyes for a coal miner's retirement party. White pendant lights illuminate the pristine nail bar, where patrons perch on stools as manicurists apply nail lacquers by OPI and butter London or treat guests to a Get Fresh aromatherapy pedicure. All of the studio's utensils are also sterilized in a medical grade Autoclave and wrapped in self-enclosed packaging while pedicure bowls never recirculate and lined for one-time use.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
