Eve's staff of beauty buffs and licensed cosmeticians pampers guests in its pastel-hued studio, while restoring lost vigor from cranium to claw. During the Revolution Whitening treatment, a technician will first fill a soft, flexible mouth tray with a safe, peroxide-based gel, making sure each of the specially designed grooves comfortably swaddles the cuspids. Next, you'll close your maw and sink your teeth into the advanced solution, which launches a quick, effective campaign against stains, lightening dingy dentals an average of four to seven shades in as little as a quarter of an hour. Another 15 minutes under a special LED light seals in the pearly luminescence, and leaves teeth shining like a freshly waxed Christmas tree in the Ecuadorian sun.
Reduced anxiety levels and fatigue. Improved quality of sleep. Better circulation. More flexible joints. Clients at REJUVENATE Wellness can experience these health benefits just by lying atop the heated treatment table where massage therapists perform their ameliorative trade. Whether in the studio or at clients' homes or offices, therapists personalize each of their therapeutic massages by pulling techniques from Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, craniosacral, and trigger-point massage. Their wellness services are rounded out with holistic-health workshops, couples massage-training classes, and personal training with weekly weigh-ins and meditation scripts.
The team at European Spa Boutique administers a thoughtful blend of naturally derived and technologically advanced treatments. A less-irritating, antiseptic wax made from soybeans is used for hair removal, and heated lava stones warm achy muscles during body treatments. For the extensive selection of facials, aestheticians call upon both methods of treatment: botanical extracts calm acned skin, chemical peels are harvested from chocolate and berries, and microcurrent and LED-light therapies are designed to increase collagen production and dissipate fine lines.
