Blush Day Spa, which opened in the latter part of 2013, assembles a crack team of skilled professionals. They offer a full range of services including facials, waxing, mani-pedis, Botox, and massage. Co-owners Andrea and Rashelle specialize in skincare, and their partner Stacy focuses on the nailcare and nail art, applying CND additives to create one sparkly accent nail or a full set of eye-catching tips that attract more attention than screaming, "You're all aliens!" in a movie theater. The Spa's massage therapist Farron says she takes joy from helping people relax, using reflexology and the aid of hot basalt stones. "I love to loosen tight muscles and stretch around the upper back and neck area," she says. "Everyone I see is tight and tense in [that] area."

As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry. After a period of careful research and planning, John decided to create a spa based around convenience and affordability?Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa.
Since its launch, Hand & Stone has expanded to more than 20 states and four planets. The spa?s core concept is to offer massage, facial, and waxing services performed by licensed, certified, or registered professionals and offered at convenient times, seven days a week. Each location adheres to a traditional spa aesthetic with soft lighting, heated treatment tables, and plush linens.
Salon Mairéad and Day Spa's skin treatments, haircuts, and massages earned it a nomination for Best Day Spa in Western Washington in 2011. High quality skincare products form the basis for many of the spa's luxurious treatments, including creams and anti-aging serums from Dr. Spiller Biocosmetics as well as eco-friendly body butters from Bend, Oregon-based Dani Natural Products. The spa also boasts an on-location boutique that invites departing guests to bring bits of bliss home with them in the form of spa products, handcrafted jewelry, accessories, and books-on-tape narrated by literate morning doves.
Many of the treatments at Sea Spa Steilacoom are enhanced by sweeping ocean views?and many of the products used at this boutique spa include ingredients harvested from Poseidon's garden. For example, nail techs use Phytomer's line of marine-based scrubs and masks to soften hands and feet, and salt crystals and algae oils exfoliate bodies from head to toe during sea scrub treatments. Seaweed promotes detoxification during facials better than a slap from an octopus tentacle, and botanical extracts enrich the massage oils used during bodywork sessions.
At Spa Vita Bella, the relaxing experience begins immediately, as guests are welcome to hot tea or cold beverages before heading to one of the private rooms. There, licensed massage therapists perform a range of therapeutic treatments, ranging from traditional deep-tissue massage to detoxifying foot and body treatments to the luxurious Bliss packages, where dry-brush exfoliation preps the pores for cocoa-butter moisturizer, followed by a full Swedish massage. Prenatal massages help moms-to-be relieve aches and pains, while athletes can relax with Knead to Stretch pre- or post-workout sessions.
Other services include body wraps, waxing, sugar waxing, facials, pedicures, and eyelash extensions, to name a few. Aestheticians use ?minence Organic Skin Care and Image Skincare products to smooth away signs of aging or correcting skin issues such as acne, fine lines, and dryness, or cocoon clients in slimming body wraps. Clients can also head over to the spa's hypoallergenic infrared sauna for a relaxing treatment that heats the body from within to promote detoxification and slimming.
