Tucked away from the clanking dumbbells and whirl of treadmills at Gold?s Gym, Angel Hands Spa offers many moments of silence during relaxing appointments. Clients recline on cozy treatment tables as massages unwind tense muscles and facials remove dirt and excess oil from pores. Excess body hair can be tackled with a laser or warm wax for those tired of shaving or asking it politely to leave. A nail technician on staff files and buffs fingernails and toenails before painting them in vibrant polish hues. The spa's most impressive treatment, however, is the noninvasive HydraFacial, which uses a Vortex-Fusion process to eliminate imperfections in the skin such as wrinkles and sun damage.
At Rejuvenating Touch Massage Therapy, licensed massage therapist Chris Duran uses relaxing Swedish and therapeutic deep-tissue and sports massages to alleviate stress and pain. But those aren't the only benefits his massages can bring. They can also help improve blood circulation and stimulate the lymphatic system, assisting the body's natural processes for waste removal. Still, Chris' primary focus is helping his clients unwind and relax, and, if desired, he can integrate warm stones or aromatherapy oils to melt every last shred of anxiety and tension.
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.
