A team of licensed aestheticians and massage therapists keep Cascade Day Spa afloat with their expertise in therapeutic body treatments and skincare. The spa's resident massage therapists release tension and stress from muscles and joints with a slew of techniques, including localized deep-tissue and sports therapy, full-body Swedish and European massage, and reflexology for the feet. Meanwhile, the salon's aestheticians, Tamara, Victoria, Shelly, and Inna, administer nearly 20 kinds of facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and a galvanic anti-aging treatment, which uses electrical currents to trigger cell regeneration and recharge red reindeer noses. For excessive fuzz scattered across the face and body, the skincare specialists use the soy-based Nufree hair-removal system, laced with skin-soothing botanicals and antibacterial ingredients.
At a very young age, there was only one thing Mikayla Guerin wanted to be when she grew up: a massage therapist. She started working toward her dream right after high school, when she moved to Portland, Oregon, to attend East West College of the Healing Arts. There, she learned that massage brings clients much more than tension relief. It can also aid in digestion, eliminate chronic pain, and strengthen the immune system enough to protect against kryptonite.
As MG Massage, she utilizes her learned skills with deep-tissue, hot-stone, and ashiatsu massages. She also offers upgrades that include soothing lavender lotion, heated eye pillows, and a hand and nail treatment that uses organic cream.
Kim Robinson became a licensed massage therapist in 2012. Before that, she helped people along their path to healing in a different way—she spent nearly 25 years working in the medical and nursing fields. Today, she uses her total knowledge of the body to banish stress and untie muscle knots. She’s able to mix and match techniques from a number of different therapies, including Swedish, hot stone, and oncology massage. Thanks in part to that mix, there’s a list of benefits that is as long and multifaceted as the Hamburglar's rap sheet.
Over the course of 11 years, licensed massage practitioner Amber Ham has been fine tuning her soothing techniques that eliminate aches, pains, and tension. Combining just the right amount of pressure with soothing strokes, Ham helps boost circulation, inspire calm, and relieve pain and stiffness throughout the body. When not using her healing hands to boost flexibility and release stress in her patients, Ham spends her time studying alternative healthcare, hiking, raising chickens, keeping beehives, and unplugging cell-phone chargers when not in use.
The mission at Organic Bronze Bar is to provide a consistent and enjoyable experience where clients get their needs heard and are always provided with cutting edge options. The talented professionals prides themselves on designing beautiful hair by merging up-to-date hair technologies and fashion trends in color, cuts and hair products that create the best results. The salon boasts high-end product lines such as Moroccanoil, Bumble & Bumble, Inoa Organics and Matrix.
Instead of relying on harmful rays, Organic Bronze Bar’s organic, paraben-free formulas call upon natural ingredients such as walnuts, antioxidants, and pure botanicals to deliver a safe, natural-looking glow. Eschewing a “one size fits all” experience, the staff custom blends each solution to suit differing skin types and applies it by hand to ensure even and streak-free coverage that dries instantly. The odorless solutions can be further enhanced with the addition of SPF, hydrating solutions, or bear repellent. Tans typically last 5–10 days with proper upkeep.
At Spoiled Spa and Salon, the path to beauty weaves through a landscape studded with massage tables, private pedicure stations with cuddler recliners, and a steam room. Clients can recline and let a massage therapist pore over them with deep-tissue techniques or hot stones, then surrender any remaining stress or stiffness during a Dead Sea–mud wrap, followed by a Vichy shower and body butter. After shampooing locks, stylists revamp tired styles with trendy cuts, multidimensional color, and Remy extensions made from 100% human hair—which can last up to three times longer than traditional extensions. Since opening, Spoiled Spa and Salon has demonstrated its commitment to the local community by annually participating in events such as CAMEO and Race for the Cure. Additionally, the salon's interior tips its hat to area talent. Local art and one-of-a-kind goods add character to the space, and the custom styling stations and signage owe their craftsmanship to local carpenters and print shops.
