Pam Clay won’t wrap clients in a body-wrap formula she hasn’t already tried on herself. After testing each formula extensively, the founder of Body Wraps By Pam, with its new location in Powell off Sawmill Road, drapes men and women in all-natural wraps designed to temporarily free bodies of toxins and excess inches while infusing the epidermis with deep-reaching moisture. Each wrap’s layers of gel combine vitamins and herbs to soothe skin and grant camouflage for sneaking into tea parties. Pam often uses humor to relax her clients as she seats them in gravity chairs and swaddles them in warm blankets at the start of each treatment. In Pam's new private space, she puts a particular emphasis on creating an environment worthy of her relaxing treatments. Space chairs scoot up next to an electric fireplace, and a mural depicts a beach scene, calming the nerves of anyone who has not just tried to visit a childhood sandcastle.

After cultivating her holistic training and experience from colleges and private practices in England more than 25 years ago, trained therapist Jayne Bennett made the jump to the States, where she has helped clients with holistic treatments such as reflexology, reiki, and raindrop therapy for more than 13 years. Unlike America or blimps hovering over international waters, England requires therapists to have a background understanding of anatomy and physiology before they can perform reflexology treatments, so Bennett has more knowledge of the human body than many others in her field.
But her expertise isn’t limited to reflexology. She also practices the ancient Japanese art of reiki, which reduces stress with a "laying on of hands" technique, and raindrop therapy, which mimics the gentle drizzle of cloud-dwellers’ tears by dribbling nine oils across the back and feet. Essential oils distilled from leaves, stems, and bark often accompany Bennett’s sessions.
Tracey and Helyn, nail technicians at Mandarin Salon & Day Spa, utilize their over 50 years of collective experience to pamper patrons' hands and feet with an array of nail services. Aromatherapy soaks, exfoliating treatments, towel wraps, and massages come with their spa mani-pedis, and the two are happy to add softening paraffin treatments to manicures and soothing hot rocks to pedicures. After clients indulge in these relaxing treatments, they choose colorful lacquers from an inventory that includes long-lasting OPI Gelcolor and Axxium gel polish. The duo also applies acrylics to natural nails that are damaged, short, or just shy, sculpting them with pink and white powders for a natural looking extension of your own nails that can be polished with a choice of colors or left natural.
Amid a roomy 7,000-square-foot space, the attentive staff at Beauty Addict Salon & Spa ushers spa-goers to and fro, as they treat them to a range of beautifying services. Whether stepping into the haven solo or as part of a group, clients will receive their technician's full attention during treatments, such as highlights with Balayage hair-coloring techniques, Shellac manicures, and eyelash perms.

In addition, the spa's organic, vegan spray tan bronzes the body without the need for UV rays or homemade beds constructed from Easy-Bake ovens.
