Since 1885, Dillons Russian Steam Bath has been steaming stress out of its patrons, making it one of the oldest traditional Russian baths in the United States. Using the time-honored methods of the banya, Dillons' steam chamber seeks to subdue stress and tension with heated granite rocks, billowing steam, and sponges of cold water for invigorating dousing. At its balmiest, the upper bench of the steam room can reach as high as 180 degrees, promoting a healthy, skin-softening sweat and a bevy of ulterior body benefits.
At Cloud Nine Therapeutic Massage, licensed massage therapist Peggy Pulak fosters tranquility of body and mind with traditional massages and alternative therapies. Her Swedish massages utilize oils and gentle, flowing strokes to soothe muscles. During Hawaiian lomi lomi massages, she may treat two areas of the body at the same time—the left shoulder and right hip, for example, a combination that's rare outside of Simon Says games. Pulak also administers alternative therapies designed to promote general wellbeing, such as reflexology foot massages and energy therapy.
The extensive education the licensed professionals at Tryangles have undergone over the years has enabled them to specialize in services that beautify from head to toe. They cut, color, and smooth hair, blast through acne and oil with facials, and remove body fuzz using warm wax. Spiritual readings tap into clients’ inner wellness, and massage therapy tends to tense muscles and chronic aches.
Before Lori Lyons became a licensed massage therapist, she was a massage patient herself. Thus she understands that the best massage therapists don’t just address problem areas, they also understand the deep connection between mind and body and educate their patients so they make informed decisions regarding their treatment plans. To help inform each client, Lori pulls from certifications in both craniosacral massage and myofascial release and her ongoing studies in anatomy and various massage modalities. She uses Swedish techniques to encourage relaxation, deep-tissue techniques to address severe tension, and water-heated stones to loosen sinews but keep them from floating away. In addition to easing physical pain, these methods can help strengthen the immune system, increase flexibility, and aid the body's natural healing processes. They may also be combined with Lori’s other specialties, which include ear candling and reflexology.
The skin-savvy team at Central Place Skin Care graces faces with high-quality products, exfoliating the frontispiece and reversing any sun damage. A survey of facials includes the European facial ($60), which integrates a décolleté massage and steam, and the anti-aging Fountain of Youth facial ($90), which centers on a glycolic-acid peel. The Red Carpet facial ($80) dispels red LED light to stimulate collagen production and achieve movie-star complexions without dipping faces into the walk of fame. Each eye treatment hydrates the thin skin that surrounds peepers, using a collagen sheet mask and LED light to diminish dark circles. Overall, the treatments last approximately 90 minutes, equal in length to a documentary about skincare.
An Aveda-concept salon, Element Day Spa pampers clients with high-quality, natural products in a soothing environment.
