At Kaya Elements, a cup of coffee or tea sets the stage for a relaxing mani-pedi, facial, or massage. Therapists work away toxins and tensions with gentle massage, and aestheticians perform facials that boost collagen production and cleanse pores with chocolate, diamond powder, or 24k gold. Men's services treat gents to haircuts, manicures, and eyebrow maintenance, while temporary henna tattooing decorates arms and legs with intricate patterns of paisley, petals, and jewels.
After struggling with her own problematic skin, Lynette Sciulli decided to fight back. She enrolled in aesthetics school to became a licensed cosmetologist and aesthetician and has spent the past decade helping clients achieve their beauty goals. Sciulli is now the proud owner of an eponymous establishment that was named a top finalist in the Best Day Spa category of Fox 8's 2011 Hot List. Sciulli and her team employ the glo therapeutics line to perform relaxing facials that combat issues such as acne, dryness, or sensitivity with highly concentrated active ingredients.
The talented crew specializes in men's haircuts, which include an eyebrow and nose grooming, hot-towel facial, a shoulder and neck massage, and instructions on tying a silk cravat into the shape of a favorite sports mascot. They also pamper guests with services ranging from Shellac mani-pedis and fragrant aromatherapy massages to airbrushed spray tans.
Destiny Derma Spa & Salon's aestheticians dote on patron appearances with a line of top-shelf skincare products that nourish and moisturize. Certified organic or paraben-free serums by Eminence, Ilike, Image, Hydropeptide, Being True Cosmetics, Pure Illumination and Puramed are slathered gingerly across skinscapes to imbue skin with youthful radiance like the frosting on Peter Pan's birthday cake. Specialists bolster serum results by wielding an array of skin-smoothing devices, such as their diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand or the Jet Peel device, which flushes away dull dead cells with supersonic jets of water and air.
By mixing classic salon services and European spa services in an atmosphere as tranquil and effortlessly elegant as a candlelit bubble bath with Cary Grant, Fusions Inc. makes it easy for customers to bliss out as a staff of all-star beauticians pamper their outer peels. A microdermabrasion will gently sandblast dead skin and barnacles off your soul ship's figurehead. The even gentler hydrating facial will moisturize desert-dry dermises, and the anti-aging facial will strip away years of wear and tear, leaving customers with a rejuvenated flesh emoticon that glows like radioactive honey.
Although each massage therapist has his or her own technique, most have the same end goal: the well-being of the client. With Shannon at Body and Soul Massotherapy, clients should see massage as a tool of healing, whether they are recovering from injury, need to unwind from tension, or have been walking around with their elbows pointed outward all day. Shannon and her cohorts expunge stress with a range of modalities, including soothing relaxation to more-intense deep tissue.
