The soothing spa treatments at The Beach House Day Spa bring seaside serenity indoors to private rooms painted the colors of sand and surf. The dry heat inside a far infrared sauna is designed to drive out toxins and rev up circulation, burning up to 700 calories over the course of a 30-minute session. Clients’ faces protrude from the sauna’s half-cylindrical canopy throughout the treatment, allowing noses to sniff wafting aromatherapy scents and mouths to heckle skin to sweat faster. Opt for the Her Mystical facial, and spa professionals will simultaneously pamper cheeks with quality cleansers, treatment creams, and exfoliants, giving them a fresh, dewy glow to match well-warmed extremities. The languid yet sure-handed strokes of the Swedish massage work to engender a sense of relaxation, warmth, and well-being, much like a good night’s sleep in a pile of meatballs. Advanced massage digs deeper to extract nagging pain, and prenatal massage targets the specific painful points experienced by mothers-to-be.
The eco-minded team at Island Day Spa nourishes skin with naturally derived formulas that demonstrate respect for the environment. Whether hydrating feet in warm paraffin wax or exfoliating skin with a walnut scrub, staffers employ Aveda products, which are formulated with ingredients such as organic essential oils and cage-free herbs. Microdermabrasion and microcurrent therapy combat fine lines or skin laxity, and Aveda's enzyme- and nutrient-rich products add curative benefits to aromatherapy massages and reflexology sessions.

For 19 years, the staff at Class Act Salon and Spa has been doling out dozens of salon and spa treatments designed to meet the needs of every face, body, and head of hair. Along the way, the salon's hairstylists have earned a reputation for repairing strands suffering from bad dye jobs or perms, carefully applying corrective color treatments and softening frizzy poufs with the CHI permanent-straightening system or custom-designed root perms. To help clients choose the best cut for their face shape, a computer-imaging system lets them see what they would look like capped in various styles or with George Clooney's chin and presents them with a take-home DVD or VHS as a reference. Heads boasting little hair to work with can find several options for filling out their follicle count, including laser hair therapy, hair integration, and wigs or permanent attachments. For those with too much hair, needleless electrolysis swiftly evicts up to 10 hairs at a time without lasers or a court-ordered removal, and microdermabrasion and herbal peels escort dry, dull skin cells from the skin's surface to let softer, smoother skin move in.
You'll see Body-N-Balance's tidily uniformed spa therapists in their treatment rooms, of course. But if you're a guest at the Omni Hotel that holds the Body-N-Balance location, you might also see them just about anywhere on the grounds, greeting new arrivals and offering suggestions for nearby restaurants.
It's not a sign that the massage therapists are distracted from their work, however. Body-N-Balance founders Loyd and Monique Wellesley met in massage school, but their vision of service extends far beyond the treatment table. They aim to make guests, including couples, feel welcome and relaxed whether they're in town for a convention or just stopping by for a facial. To that end, they pay close attention not just to the massage strokes, but to the ambience and aromas surrounding their treatments. Those treatments often pamper the skin as well as the muscles, making for multisensory experiences that have won a lot of fans, such as Jessica Skropanic of Worldwide Spa Review who described the back scrub as, "heavenly!"

Though the artisans at Highbrow Eyebrow & Facial Spa specialize in the ancient Eastern arts of threading and henna, the salon features a full range of modern spa services to tend to clients’ every aesthetic need. Technicians efficiently remove hair from both faces and bodies using a choice of warm wax or deftly looped cotton thread, depending on the desired precision and whether the area also needs to be hemmed. Intricate henna applications help patrons show off their newly smooth skin, while refining facials and enzyme peels restore youthful élan to mugs suffering from dullness or uneven texture.
