Namaste Wellness Spa nourishes soul containers with attentive, customized service and skin-pampering Dermalogica salves. After sweeping future freshened faces into individual treatment rooms, skin swamis query clients to suss out any necessary adjustments and answer questions about the procedure, its impact on different skin types, and the infield fly rule. A microdermabrasion facial exfoliates flesh masks with a spray of fine crystals, reducing the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and B-list celebrity guest stars. Alternatively, a chemical peel's lactic acid lathes away superficial layers of skin, achieving a similarly scrubbed-clean glow. Visages prone to breakouts or oiliness can also opt for the platinum spa facial, which soothes complex skin types before pampering necks, shoulders, and neglected second heads with a massage. Cap off beautifying treatments with a trip to the relaxation room, where silken cushions caress newly softened skin as mouths sup on cookies and tea.
Prior to opening her own studio, Couture Facials, licensed aesthetician Jessica hopped from the East Coast across the pond to Italy and Paris on a quest for the finest European skincare products. She returned to the United States and recruited a staff of beauty professionals to make use of her findings during a slew of skincare services. Each of the staff members is well-trained to perform a number of services, from exfoliating microdermabrasion treatments to anti-aging facials. Some treatments, such as the Fully Loaded facial, include a relaxing massage; others require the spa’s licensed massage therapists to step in and exclusively cater to tense muscles during deep-tissue, Swedish, and lava-stone massages. Though Couture Facials offers a relaxing environment to unwind, clients can also request at-home services, which save them the trouble of traveling or overcoming their fears of being attacked by a cloud.
Phountain Health was founded on the theory that staying healthy involves balancing the body's pH levels. In addition to bottling pH-balancing alkaline water—soon to be available via delivery—Phountain Health hosts infrared-sauna sessions, which aim to improve circulation and oust toxins, as do the spa's ionic detoxifying footbaths. The business' communal approach can also be seen in hot-yoga classes, where clients work out together rather than sit alone on the couch sipping battery acid.
