At Neal's, a team of highly trained pampering professionals apply the latest age- and ache-combating techniques to restore beauty and bliss to flushed faces and embattled backs. During the customized, one-hour European facial, an aesthetician will perform an analysis of the frumpled face in question before administering a thorough cleansing and exfoliating vegetable peel to exorcise the ear-framed masterpiece of dead, dry skin cells (a $70 value). Afterward, a facial massage kneads away tenderness and eases facial stress brought on by years of awkward elevator small talk.
Paradise Salon and Day Spa offers visitors a chance to take a vacation from everyday stress with a menu of full-body beautification services. Dry hair can take a permanent hiatus thanks to the salon's intense haircare treatment, which nourishes parched strands with a formula rich in plant and silk proteins. Dry skin is likewise tackled with a hydrating and brightening caviar facial or an aromatherapy body wrap that swaddles skin in cotton sheets after brushing it with soothing essential oils. If a change in scenery won't fit into your hectic schedule, change what you see in the mirror instead by booking a complete makeup makeover or sprucing up lifeless strands with luminous highlights. Waxing services provide all the fun of getting ready for the beach without the itchy sand or annoying sunshine, and mani-pedis extend sandal season year-round to show off colorful coats of regular, french-style, or shellac polish.
The professional aestheticians and massage therapists at The Face Place tussle with tense spots and cleanse world-weary complexions in a soothing, Eastern-themed spa. A 15-minute aromatherapy eucalyptus steam bath permeates physiques to loosen clenching muscles and waist-clinging koala bears. Bodies can then spurn bothersome aches with one of four massage modalities, including the smooth, classic strokes of a Swedish massage or the more pressurized, pain-pummeling kneads of a deep-tissue treatment. During maternal massage, practiced knuckles gently search for baby-related back pain, and the integrative reflexology massage targets nodes in the ears, hands, and feet that correspond to distinct corporal zones or prompt noses to glow red and shout "operation!"
Massage Metta’s lead massage practitioner, Janine Narayadu, specializes in Active Isolated Stretching. Recognized by many physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists as an effective way to improve flexibility, the AIS method stretches muscles for no longer than two seconds at a time to lengthen the muscles without triggering reciprocal muscle contractions or requiring new, longer clothes. Along with stretching techniques, Janine employs more than 15 years of international massage experience to relieve tension with the firm kneads of deep-tissue massage or the gentle strokes of Swedish massage. Massage Metta also offers craniosacral therapy and detoxification services for general health and wellness.
A century ago, the ailing sought relief in the naturally occurring salt caves of Canada, Europe, and Asia. Today, visitors to Hygea Wellness Co & Salt Room follow in the footsteps of their afflicted predecessors. Seven tons of kosher Dead Sea salt frosts the walls and floors of a cavernous room where customers relax and inhale its healing effects or season the rims of their margaritas. The fine salt aerosol, chock-full of minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium, can help to assuage skin and breathing maladies. The salty lungfuls breed negative ions in the body, diminishing free radicals and bacteria that contribute to allergies, asthma, and even the common cold. The cave safely restores health to adults and kids alike, but it actually works faster in youngsters, who stay entertained with sandbox toys, books, and DVDs. Their parents can attach laptops to electrical plugs and surf free WiFi during sessions, or they can simply enjoy the memories of mom's perfectly seasoned chicken noodle soup engendered by the mineral-laden room. Relaxation continues during massages, body wraps, and salt scrubs.
