Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
After walking through the front door to Healing in Harmony Wellness Center, the delicate fragrance of essential oils is the first thing that welcomes a visitor in, followed by earth-tone walls and friendly healers. Each member of the team works with clients to help overcome their health problems through an array of services that touch on massage, facials, reiki healing, and other therapies. With a menu of massage modalities and cupping techniques, clients have many options to choose from, such as the Soul massage, which incorporates reiki into soothing strokes and carefully applied pressure. To ensure clients also feel better on the outside, the staff performs aesthetic services including facials and nail services.
Apple Valley Wellness Center is a full-service health center and day spa, offering everything from yoga and psychotherapy to spa facials and waxing services. Wellness services include hatha yoga classes, which increase flexibility and strength. After these classes, clients can unwind with muscle-melting deep-tissue massages. The center's other soothing spa services include collagen-blanket masks, which help activate existing collagen to plump up fine lines and wrinkles, and sugar body scrubs, which deeply exfoliate physiques.
Led by reiki master and experienced massage therapist Becky LaRose, Sacred Earth Healing Arts destresses patrons with the intertwining modalities of massage and reflexology. Dorsal extremities can let go of stresses accrued from trying to out-bench-press corporate rivals with a deep-tissue, sports, or Swedish massage. During the 60-minute muscle maneuvering, therapists blanket backs in a variety of soothing strokes and aromatherapy products made in-house. For those opting for a reconstructive deep-tissue or sports massage, therapists provide a complimentary postural analysis and range-of-motion test to address issues that cause muscular pain.
Nichole Soares, the owner of Salon de Nichole, views every head as a canvas and every hairdo as an artistic statement of beauty. She and her team style hair with that view in mind, trimming bangs, sides, and tops, carefully adding texture, and signing off with ribbons of color. Harnessing the power of Keratin Complex, they train locks to fall smoothly around the face without frizzing out or forming the highly offensive words "comb me." They offer services that fall outside the scope of hairstyling, too—waxing, for example, as well as facials, massage therapy, and beauty services for bridal parties.
The expert aestheticians at Reviva Spa and Beauty Boutique bring about epidermal bliss with a wide range of facials and spa services. The de-pore cleansing treatment targets particularly pesky spots, unclogging pores filled with face-dulling makeup, oil, and war paint. Alternatively, the radiance facial deploys a skin-sloughing peel, cleansing the face's top layer of skin to reveal a smoother, younger looking façade. Customers can pair the skin-renewing powers of the detox facial, which uses natural products to fight build up, with a 60-minute massage that leaves patrons as relaxed as a monk in a terry cloth robe.
