At Grasshopper Unisex Full Service Salon, stylists and aestheticians primp and style exteriors within a chic, high-end environment. Armed with products from Goldwell, Nexxus, and other top brands, the staff snips at strands, colors locks, and massages scalps at individual workstations. The salon's décor—which also includes a fireplace and an array of plush pillows—helps to make guests feel like royalty without subjecting them to the pains of being trapped inside a deck of playing cards. For instance, during waxing, massage, and other spa sessions, patrons retire to private treatment rooms lined with fragrant plants and soft, flickering candles.
Strawberries, raspberries, chocolate, milk, and honey?all of these ingredients would be great in a sundae, but at Diva Spa, they're meant to nourish your skin. They're also just a few of the revitalizing secrets in the spa's many scrubs and wraps. Others incorporate sea salt for exfoliation, or cr?me-based European rose mud for moisture. The rest of the menu spans massages, facials, and high-tech weight-loss programs, such as treatments that use ultrasound instead of slowly-shrinking t-shirts to target unwanted fat.
The floor-to-ceiling windows in Therapeutic Healing Massage Center's treatment rooms allow river and city views to stream in, creating a tranquil environment for holistic bodywork. The licensed therapists are trained in a wide array of massage modalities, including aesthetic techniques that address cellulite and the signs of aging. Their Bioptron light-therapy sessions fight injuries and pain with sunshine-like energy that comes free of UV radiation or spontaneous eclipses.
