Renaissance Salon & Spa took over its stately 1920s farmhouse in the year 2000. There, aestheticians make the most of the homey setting with treatment packages that really let clients settle in. A Euphoria package, for example, begins with a a warm towel treatment for the face and a scalp massage with flower water. Guests then step into the spa's clawfoot tub, soaking in essential oils and rose petals. Another package, the Hot Toddy for the Body, evokes the aromas of that restorative drink with a nectar bath followed by a bourbon-and-brown-sugar scrub that might have you furtively licking your wrist for the rest of the day.
If you don't have a whole afternoon to lounge about, other services include spray tans, hair coloring, and pedicures. Many treatments also incorporate organic and botanical ingredients?Aveda botanical skin resurfacing serves as an alternative to microdermabrasion, and a fusion hot-stone massage gets its fresh scent from native plants.

With Swedish strokes and volcanic basalt rocks heated up to 120 degrees, hot-stone massages soothe the last shreds of stress from a long day of asking coworkers about the location of Carmen Sandiego. Staff members massage necks, heads, and shoulders and rub scalps with scented aromatherapy oils during a moisture-minded Wax and Relax treatment, which also washes away tension from hands and feet with a warm bath of paraffin wax.
