Massage might be the only form of treatment offered at New Happy Day Spa, but that's not to say that the studio's clients don't have options. Traditionalists can stick to Swedish massage, made more fluid by the use of oils. Deep-tissue massage often gets a helping hand from warmed basalt stones, which loosen areas of tension and calm the nervous system. The spa's resident massage therapists have another mode of targeting aches: the Chinese art of reflexology, which uses a pressure-point map of the feet in an attempt to stimulate healing throughout the body and banish phantom socks.
Soft pink back-lit walls and classical music set the scene for relaxation in B2000 Spa’s massage rooms. The full-body, foot, and back massages are the marquee draw here: the staff of trained massage therapists perform soothing and therapeutic treatments that instill feelings of tranquility and well-being. But the sauna room and facial room shouldn’t be overlooked—feel free to come in to relax, rejuvenate, and see how the acoustics compare to your bathroom at home. The spa also features showers and changing rooms for men and women.
At Petite Hair & Nails, a staff of talented aestheticians, nail technicians, and makeup artists have a passion for hair and nail care. They come together to pamper from head-to-toe by offering their varied lineup of salon and spa services with quality products from brands such as Keracure, Chi, OPI, and Paul Mitchell. The salon also offers other services such as massages and specialty permanent makeup.
The dedicated staff of Beauty Chateau Med Spa Salon use treatments to help clients look and feel their best. Signs of aging ranging from sun spots to wrinkles can be combatted with IPL photo-rejuvenation treatments, crystal microdermabrasion, and chemical peels. Spa treatments such as body wraps and scrubs are enhanced with oils, Dead Sea salt, and therapeutic herbs. Mani-pedis can be augmented with paraffin treatments and hydrating masks. Beauty Chateau even provides hairstyling services, such as Brazilian blowouts and feather extensions.
Spa LaLe is anything but ordinary. The brainchild of Stella Chung, a licensed aesthetician and massage therapist, the spa wraps clients in the luxury of La Rivage Hotel, earning Best Day Spa honors from CityVoter for two years in a row.
Blanketed in romantic lighting and an earthy color scheme, the spa’s decor makes it hard for clients to feel anything but relaxed during their retreat. But, in case clients do have trouble unwinding, Stella and her handpicked staff offer a range of indulgent spa services, such as a 24-karat gold facial that covers skin in revivifying pure gold leaf. Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone massages relax muscles, and signature body treatments incorporate heated mud wraps and acupressure therapy. Patrons also gain access to luxurious amenities including a private sauna, a serene meditation room, and a saltwater jacuzzi similar to the one where Donald Trump keeps his pampered pet sharks.
Owner Yavonda Van Dyke––a licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist––is also a certified educator who, when not busy keeping her staff abreast of the latest practices and styles, waxes beautific to the public during advanced-education classes. Visitors stepping into her full-service salon are greeted by cosmetologists, aestheticians, massage therapists, and manicurists, who work side by side to pamper bodies from fingertip to fascia. After arising from a full body Swedish or deep-tissue massage, clients can hop into the styling chair to relax stressed strands with Japanese hair straightening or an intense conditioning treatment. Old nail polish is swiftly swapped out for French tips or artificial overlays during mani-pedis that may be made extra indulgent with skin-softening paraffin treatments, while facials for ladies, gents, and teens help rekindle glowing complexions by removing dirt, oil, and stuck Halloween masks.
