The specialists at Brody Massage each possess a minimum of five years' experience in their industry, which helps them pinpoint trouble areas and efficiently shoo away tension during each massage treatment they perform. Within private treatment rooms with walls adorned with Asian-inspired rice-paper dividers, therapists listen to their clients' desires in order to customize a variety of massage modalities, including reflexology, shiatsu, Swedish, and craniosacral therapy, which targets specialized points of the skull, face, and neck with massage techniques and all-natural spearmint oil. Meanwhile, detox treatments soak clients' feet in ionized water in hopes of liberating systems of harmful toxins, such as heavy metals, parasites, and socks.
Though Brody Massage is now a mecca for massage services, it didn't used to be. Its roots as a massage and spa supplies distributor still show today on shelves that brim with massage oils and aromatherapy supplies. The shop floor features even more tension-melting essentials, as its gleaming dark wood supports massage tables, barber chairs, and magnifying aesthetician's lights for reading the abort code written on the skin cells of every human.
Inner Radiance Spa, a "Best of Groupon" in 2011, knows the key to achieving and maintaining healthy skin: treating it with non-toxic products. To that end, the specialists rely on organic products from the Hungarian Eminence Organic Skin Care line, which incorporates ingredients such as flowers, herbs, and fruits instead of harsh chemicals.
But the spa's earth-friendly approach doesn't just benefit faces?its commitment to sustainable practices includes using biodegradable cleaning supplies, recycling, and serving fair-trade tea. The business even utilizes a water filtration system that prevents staff from having to buy bottled water or squeeze a cactus till it cries. This green approach was spearheaded by founder Shaly Vassigh, who recalls her education at the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics and experience as a holistic skincare practitioner to offer spa treatments that nourish both the skin and the earth.
What do neuroscience and beauty have in common? Park Avenue Blow Dry and Beauty Bar’s owner, Holli Christensen, marks both as career paths she’s conquered. After earning her master's degree at King’s College in London, the research scientist decided to ditch the lab coat and set her sights on cracking the beauty formula. Her first business––Kensington Makeup Artists––became a booming success, delivering on-location wedding makeup and hair for more than 150 brides and at least one confused catering assistant per year. Not only was she named one of Phoenix Business Journal’s Top Forty Under 40 in 2011, but she also found the inspiration to open Park Avenue as a permanent hub for clients who needed everyday services such as updos, highlights, makeup, and waxing. Today, Holli still caters to on-the-go beauty seekers by offering 30-minute mini facials or express blowouts. Those with more leisurely schedules can take their time choosing from six types of eyelash extensions that last anywhere from one night to six weeks.
With more than 1,000 liposuctions and facelifts under his belt, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jose L. Robledo knows one thing for sure: nobody wants that ?worked over? look. That?s why at Arizona Laser & Skin he and his team aim to make wrinkles and unwanted fat disappear with natural products and advanced techniques that rely on the skin?s innate healing ability. Minimally invasive procedures such as the Endotine Ribbon face and neck lift and AquaShape body-contouring system are performed alongside noninvasive beauty techniques such as FDA approved Viora cellulite-reduction and skin-tightening treatments. Micro-current facials get skin smoother than a dolphin?s raincoat by stimulating and thus helping to strengthen the facial muscles. In addition to emphasizing natural-looking results, the team prides itself on looking after the safety of its patients. A consultation precedes each treatment, during which clients find out if procedures are right for them, ask questions, and address any special needs.
As they stroll along the green, undulating grounds of the Marriott's Wildfire Golf Club, guests watch as a fire pit slowly comes into view. White sand golf hazards slope along the grassy surface, and rows of palm trees sway. Then, they arrive at their destination: Meritage Steakhouse. Inside, spotted cowhides cover chairs beneath cream-and-burgundy ceilings high enough to allow room for a black-tie food fight. Expansive windows complement meals with natural sunlight and landscape views.
All of this is the setting for the restaurant's main draw: steaks. Filet or porterhouse, dressed with b?arnaise or white truffle butter, paired with lobster tail or scallops, the steaks are filled with a soft textured tenderness that only comes from using the best aged, marbled cuts. Meritage operates on an organic, sustainable philosophy, and partners with a largely local community of farmers, fisheries, and artisans. All of the steaks hail from just two ranches?one in California and one in Colorado?that pride themselves on their cattle's vegetarian diets.
