Hibiscus Day Spa?s body-treatment menu looks good enough to eat: the pumpkin body souffl? softens skin with enzymes, and the Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence tantalizes the senses with a cocoa scrub and chocolate-butter massage. Though not as epicurean, Hibiscus?s other spa treatments are similarly luxuriant. The dual massage recruits two therapists to work on a client?s muscular tension, and a Caribbean Queen facial slathers skin with an aromatic blend of peptides and hydrators. Specialty treatments for expectant mothers and brides-to-be fill out the selection, as well as teen services; mini facials help instill healthy skincare habits and massages tackle high-school sports injuries and tension from hanging on a flagpole by your underwear.

For maintenance less aesthetic and more energetic, Hibiscus also boasts an onsite health and wellness center. Here, clients can look to traditional Chinese healing therapies such as sliding-scale acupuncture and reiki energy balancing. Custom nutritional counseling helps participants embrace long-term healthful eating habits.

My Yoga Revolution Studio employs a unique method of Vinyasa yoga to harness the therapeutic properties of the art. Its form of the discipline emphasizes focused breathing in each posture. They meld those teachings into their classes, custom yoga therapy sessions, all-levels classes, and retreats for beginners, experienced practitioners, and those with injuries and chronic health conditions. All-levels classes teach advanced asanas such as inversions and arm balances, while guided meditation focuses on soothing relaxation techniques. For a more personalized healing session, teachers detoxify the body with Ayurvedic consultations and Panchakarma therapy, which corrects seasonal imbalances in the body over a three-five-seven-day period.

In addition to teaching students the art of therapeutic yoga, the studio offers 200-hour yoga teacher training for students that can be taken over six weekends or within three weeks. Teacher training aims to help graduates learn the necessary skills to teach yoga and market and self-promote themselves in a variety of settings, ranging from gyms to private practices. When the serene interior of the studio isn?t enough to whisk their students? minds to another place, the staff whisks away their bodies by leading regular retreats to the Catskills and Bali.

Candy Kids Spa combines things that kids love—including more than 100 types of candy, candy-flavored facial masks, a heaping helping of personalized attention, and fun activities such as karaoke—into one memorable experience. It should come as no surprise that the company's formula is a successful one, since it was, in fact, inspired by a 6-year-old. As she told Elizabeth Carey in a 2010 Buffalo Business First feature, owner Ayanna Williams came up with the concept when her daughter requested her own special treatment after seeing the pampering going on at a traditional spa.

Williams and her daughter decided to retrieve some frosting out of the cabinet and had a good time creating their very own tasty "facial." Williams's daughter told her friends at school about it, and soon Williams started traveling to people's homes for mobile parties. She then bought a storefront on Niagara Falls Boulevard, gutting the building herself and painting the walls in bright rainbow colors. Williams eventually expanded the business to include two more locations in New York state and is in the process of creating franchises elsewhere.

The innovative spa, which has been featured on WKBW Channel 7 News, offers services ranging from candy-colored mani-pedis to a spa factory where kids can make their own lip gloss and candy-scented perfume. They also host parties to celebrate a birthday or a long-awaited truce in a war over which sister gets to sleep on the top bunk.

?Pamper Yourself," two words stamped in gold that command all who enter Therapeutic Massage & Bodyworks' domain, asway with lush greenery. With this mandate always in mind and therapeutic scents lingering in the air, ice-cold goblets of lemon water or steaming cups of herbal tea comfort guests losing themselves in the fireplace?s warm, flickering ballet. Gentle exhalations stir the still air, raising scents that hint at fistfuls of rose petals and fruit-based masks that harness the same natural powers as the fine mud and fresh avocados enhancing the salon?s full-body treatments. A reliance on the bounty of Mother Nature carries through into massage treatments that use warm seashells to chase away stress. Skincare and body waxing are performed by licensed aestheticians who hold secondary certification in zamboni operation.
