In The Pink Skin Care is the coalescence of founder Beth Anne Corbett's passion for skin care and her entrepreneurial spirit. As she has since opening the spa in 2000, Corbett customizes luxurious facials to each client's skincare needs. She typically incorporates exfoliation and extractions into sessions, leaving clients more relaxed than a sloth traveling through a speed trap. Her specialties also include lash and eyebrow tinting and waxing.
Diva Sprays' staff draws on seven years of color-mixing experience to custom blend UV-less tints from FDA-approved California Tan products. During a 10-minute procedure, clinicians evenly canvas skin using a steady airbrush that won't leave streaks or furtively graffiti backs with its initials. Bronze glows emerge within 24 hours and last for up to 10 days. Clients can also call upon Diva Sprays' mobile technicians for on-location bronzing services.

Lotus Skin Care’s owner, Rachel McEachen, was trained in the art of taming follicles at two different Tampa-area cosmetology schools, so she knows how to zap rogue hairs and sculpt beautiful brows with the precision of a helicopter pilot landing on a ping-pong table. She and her staff of friendly aestheticians put beauty-seekers at ease with their gentle, nearly painless waxing methods, and the cozy décor makes Lotus Skin as comfy and good-smelling as the inside of Gloria Stuart’s makeup bag. Three eyebrow waxings will keep brows in shape for months to come, providing ample hours for wiggling them while making faces in the mirror. Call ahead to make an appointment.
Even as a 4-year-old growing up in Honolulu, Vee Osborne was drawn to Hawaiian shamanism and the Huna philosophy, which stresses the balance of the mind, body, and spirit through one’s actions. Her early passion for healing others led her down the path to becoming a hypnotherapist, reiki master, and ordained minister before she funneled her devotion to creating harmony and guiding others toward wellness into Plaza West Massage & Day Spa. Here, clouds of gentle music and the scent of essential oils greet her guests, who slip into robes and sip wine as they unwind. And Vee’s Hawaiian roots remain readily apparent, inspiring the spa’s potted palms, bamboo massages, piña-colada scrubs, and wall-sized pictures that bring Pacific beaches to Kansas.
Vee’s healing services go beyond relaxation, though. Her team of massage therapists kneads aching muscles with Swedish, trigger-point, and deep-tissue modalities, deepening their knot-fighting effect with volcanic stones and essential oils. After a body wrap with Dead Sea salts or a glycolic peel, guests can visit the two-tiered sauna or extend their rejuvenation with an energy-balancing reiki session. The spa also delves into treatments that rely on electronic frequencies, such as a tri-phasic resonator, which fights cellulite, or quantum electro-ionization, which aims to diminish blemishes rather than cover them up with white-out. Before heading home, clients can pick up body and facial products from Vee’s eponymous line, such as Island Essence hair products, complete with tropical scents.
After luxuriating in Sunlight Day Spa's opulent extras—a rose-petal footbath, a relaxation room, comfy robes, complimentary beverages, and hidden loudspeakers that shout at you to relax whenever you look nervous—you'll be ready for your massage of choice. Sunlight Day Spa specializes in Asian massage techniques, displayed to full effect with its Om massage ($80), which uses long connecting strokes and aromatherapy oils to create a positively enlightening level of relaxation. If the Om doesn't cure your body's samsara, a Release massage ($95) will ease pains and chronic tension by focusing on deep muscle and connective tissue. The muscle-melting Hot Stone massage ($95), meanwhile, might bring back happy memories of the stress-free week spent trapped under a volcanic boulder.
