At Serenity Salon and Spa, exceptional service is second only to the services provided. The staff of massage therapists, skincare specialists, and stylists make sure that clients feel as relaxed and welcome during their treatments as they do beautiful when they're over. Fashionable cuts and vibrant colors come by way of hairstylists, who stay abreast of the latest hair trends by attending exhibitions, where they learn how to read celebrities' minds. Wraps and massages pander to the skin and body, and mani-pedis, employed by professional nail technicians, fill out the peripherals of the body and result in groomed and painted extremities.
At Renew U Massage & Bodywork, licensed massage therapists John Garcia administers soothing therapeutic massages to alleviate aches and promote relaxation of the body and mind. More than mere massage administrator, he uses his knowledge of nutrition and personal fitness to educate clients on healthy living. In addition to his usual services, he also performs on-site chair massages at offices and gatherings, alleviating back pain, reducing stress, and giving email inboxes some much-needed alone time.
The trained technicians of Spa Botanica not only foster beautiful complexions, they work to build lasting relationships with their clients through personalized services and luxurious extras. To delight clients' senses they often employ aromatherapy, shea butter, and products infused with moor mud. They also offer fresh fruit, complimentary champagne, and orange and cucumber water in the client lounge. Once they are relaxed, clients can slip into a light slumber as an aesthetician detoxifies and exfoliates the body with a sea-salt scrub and green-coffee-infused body wrap, or enjoy one of four types of facials that brighten the skin with Dermalogica skincare products. Relaxation is further amplified during customized private and couples massages, which release tension with heated stones and reflexology techniques. An onsite steam shower purges the skin of impurities by opening each pore, whereas nail technicians pamper hands, feet, and rabbit-foot key chains with paraffin-wax treatments and hydrating lotions.
Elizabeth Rostro's and Barbara Boatwrigth's ER Skin Care fully embraces its name. Clients can stop in for a 75-minute CPR facial—a massage-accompanied microdermabrasion treatment that promotes collagen growth—or a soothing 25-minute ER Visit face cleansing that evokes the decadent and relaxing vibes of an actual hospital. Despite their tongue-in-cheek menu, Elizabeth and Barbara take skincare seriously. Combined, they have over 25 years experience as aestheticians and studied with Elizabeth Arden spas to hone their beautifying techniques. Today, they take advantage of the latest skincare treatments, including DermaSound facials, which nourish pores with ultrasound waves and numerous specialized peels that can target any individual concern. In addition to skincare, they perform waxing services, hair-tinting procedures, and classic massages.
At three locations across the Metroplex area, licensed massage therapists at The Massage Co. have loosened muscles and reduced stress during more than 40,000 massages. They customize seven different modalities, ranging from the targeted finger pressure of trigger-point therapy to the ancient art of reflexology, which is designed to address health issues throughout the whole body via channels in the feet. Massage therapy's myriad health benefits include better circulation, improved flexibility, and an enhanced capacity for creative thought, which comes in handy when converting your twin mattress to a king-size using nothing but bubble wrap.
Dr. Dawn Batiz Blagg and the Loraine Shinks Rejuvenate Spa team of aestheticians believe that people are their most beautiful when they feel relaxed and pampered. To that end, they create a soothing spa atmosphere where they offer microdermabrasions, chemical peels, and massages as well as deep-cleansing facials and Botox injections. Alternately, spa-goers can relax during a luxurious face, hand, and foot massage before getting a Brazilian bikini wax and a natural-looking spray tan, or get a seaweed wrap to help reduce the look of cellulite, while reminding clients of their summer vacations to the shore.
