Michael Gainer, a licensed stylist at Elements Salon, enjoys pampering his clients and helping them love their hair. At the full-service hair, skin, nails, and massage spot, salon-goers can choose from a vast array of services, from a keratin hair-straightening treatment to a full facial wax, a deep pore facial, or a 60-minute hot-stone massage. Visitors can get a golden glow with a full-body spray tan, have hair extensions put in place, or relax during a whole-body aromatherapy scrub.
With services named after Zeus, Hercules, Eilithyia—the goddess of childbirth—and other members of the Greek pantheon, therapists at Aphrodite’s Day Spa draw inspiration from mythical figures to help each client relax and punish Prometheus for stealing hot-stone massages from Mount Olympus. Optional massage add-ons, such as emu oil, organic pain-relieving gel, or peppermint aromatherapy, help customize each treatment to each client’s concerns, including joint pain and persistent headaches. Beyond massage therapy, the staff at Aphrodite’s Day Spa performs a wide range of skincare services as well as a full suite of waxing, nailcare, and tanning services to keep bodies pampered from head to toe.
The professionals at Adiva's Ageless Aesthetics Spa improve every square inch of bodies with a spectrum of hair, skin, waxing, and nail treatments. To rejuvenate complexions, they perform seven types of signature facials as well as microdermabrasion and permanent-makeup application. Massage services sooth the muscles, nerves, and little monsters that live beneath the skin. An on-site boutique enables guests to continue their makeovers at home with new chic apparel and products.
With more than 60 group fitness classes every week, a fleet of high-tech cardio and weight machines, and a litany of gym amenities and perks, MetroFitness takes the drudgery out of lifting weights and getting fit, infusing workouts with fun and teamwork. Members track their progress and blow past personal goals with Fitlinxx monitoring devices, or sweat alongside fellow athletes in Pilates, stretch yoga, and Zumba dance courses. Seasoned personal trainers help clients maximize their workout efficiency during calorie-crunching exercise sessions, or introduce members to new workout techniques, such as high-intensity Power 45/15 or calming qigong.
The soothing scents of aromatherapy, coupled with the sounds of music and water, stimulate the senses as soon as visitors enter Body Serene Spa. From there, the relaxation and pampering differ, depending on each client's beauty wishes. Services range from nailcare and custom facials to massages, waxing, and infrared body wraps. During one-hour treatments, the body wraps reduce the appearance of cellulite on trouble areas such as the thighs while also boosting metabolism.
