The scents of thyme, peppermint, and mango blossom like petals from Relax and Live Beautiful's armory of naturally sourced products. Aestheticians add fresh sheens of vivaciousness during the studio’s lush facials by applying a series of artificial-dye- and fragrance-free products that were never tested on animals, unlike early versions of the SATs. Feet seep in warm spa socks, relishing newfound tenderness bestowed by the rough embrace of pumice scrubs beneath shelves brimming with the salon's signature BeautiControl line of skincare and beauty potions.
Massage therapist PJ Klingforth, a Kaplan University graduate, aims to soothe injured, strained, and achy areas with Swedish and prenatal modalities. PJ customizes her kneading to target aches over 30-, 60-, or 90-minute sessions. PJ and her team also pamper clients with sunless airbrush tanning using South Seas products that create even tans on even the palest or most transparent skin.
At Etre Vivant, licensed massage therapist Chalee George invigorates bodies with customized massage treatments. She specializes in hot stone massage, but is also astute in other modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and specialty treatments such as warm-bamboo massage and aromatherapy. Ms. George also crafts her own line of homemade soaps, which smell of enticing fragrances such as sweet pumpkin, lavender, and cranberry sauce.
Despite the breaking of clocks and the plotting of super villains, the world continues to turn, days and then years pass, and skin gathers wrinkles and begins to sag. At Lynn Klein Massage & Skincare, skilled aesthetician Janet (Lynn) Klein fights these signs of aging with cutting-edge facials that incorporate galvanic currents, Nu Skin products, and microdermabrasion, aiming to firm up slack skin and banish wrinkles left from frowning at disappointingly slow-growing house plants. Klein also draws on her 19 years of experience in the massage and skincare industry while incorporating massage techniques to soothe away stress. The spa also evicts excess wax and hidden telegraph messages from ears with candling.
Roxy's Salon & Spa relaxes guests even before they start their pampering treatments. The couches and stone fireplace create a cozy, living-room feel, and the smiles on the stylists relax any pre-makeover jitters. Clients can ease into their new hairstyles or color crafted by stylists who boast a specialization in custom color design. In addition, guests can doze during a facial or relax at their office, home, or favorite ice-cream shop during mobile spa services.
