At Perfect Day Massage, certified muscle menders customize massages to each client?s desires and corporeal cues, enhancing treatments with aromatherapy and gliding hot stones. Sessions may cycle through a number of modalities, from the stress-relieving strokes and kneads of Swedish massage to the therapeutic techniques of deep tissue and reflexology. Clients can choose from a number of all-natural essential oils, each equipped with fragrant aromas, distinct cleansing, and curative properties that can help clear respiratory passages, soothe irritations, or wash away lingering bacteria and clingy personal assistants. Therapists then skate soothing hot stones across sore backs, softening taut tendons. Upon request, sessions can conclude with tips on easing everyday discomfort through simple life changes, such as drinking tea or cushioning insoles with heaps of cotton candy.
Donna Davis, a critical-care nurse and aesthetician, borrows knowledge from her healthcare background to craft custom treatment plans that enhance the appearance and health of her clients' complexions. The skincare specialist glazes faces with medical-grade products from SkinTherapeutic and hypoallergenic and fragrance-free elixirs from SkinCeuticals, gently slathering exfoliating substances over pores like a Renaissance painter applying cream cheese to a bagel. Those suffering from chronic acne or scarring may benefit from the Dadashie Acne System, with visible results emerging in as little as two weeks. Davis' medical expertise allows her to use higher percentages of chemical acids and pure and unbuffered substances, as well as to write recommendations for future skincare regimens in a moderately illegible script.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Royal Tan And Spa's staff bronzes bodies with modern tanning beds and services and offer a variety of spa services such as body wraps, massages, and facials. A series of Royal Gold sessions gently browns customers with 40 souped-up, full-body lamps. The futuristic bed of lights keeps clients cool with adjustable fans while evenly bronzing faces with four high-pressure facial-tanning lanterns and offering up to five gradients of an overall golden glow. Patrons may also choose Mystic Tan sessions held in a private room with the automated Mist Applicator, which evenly and gently gilds skin without exposing it to harmful UV rays. Mystic Tanning is available in three levels, so customers have the choice of looking as though they just returned from the beaches of the Bahamas or the sand dunes of Mars. The technicians can even apply custom airbrush tans at the spa or at clients' homes for a sunless solution that lasts up to 10 days.
After witnessing a lack of personalized service in the spa industry, a trio of passionate entrepreneurs formed Lauthr Salon with the vision of individualized service and unparalleled attentiveness for every customer. The doting staff offers each client a complimentary beverage before wielding high-end beauty products from Bumble&Bumble, CHI Enviro, and YonKa during transformative facials, waxes, and hair services. This attention to quality and client comfort helped win the salon awards as Santa Rosa's Best Brazilian Wax and Best Nail Salon in 2009 from Citysearch. When they're not busy writing acceptance speeches, the beauty experts also lend their skills to brides- and bombshells-to-be with wedding- and boudoir-photography packages.:m]]
