The spa staff operates on the philosophy that beauty and wellness result from the body's sense of balance, and its freedom from impurities. This approach leads technicians and aestheticians to use natural and organic products, as well as noninvasive mechanical processes, when they rejuvenate faces and bodies. They specialize in eyelash extensions long enough to reach for healthy produce, and in nonsurgical face-lifts that use microcurrent, LED, or galvanic current. Other clinical facial therapies include chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and the staff is also skilled in waxing.
Yova Lockett of Kindred Spirits Massage welcomes her clients and helps put them at ease before kneading away muscle tension with assorted bodywork techniques. Her Swedish massages employ a light, flowing touch, ideal for those new to massage, and deep-tissue treatments delve further into muscles with more focused pressure. Sports massages stretch out the tendons of sore athletes and personal assistants who have to give sore athletes piggyback rides. Add-on services such as aromatherapy and salt scrubs enhance the experience by soothing the senses.
Within the sunny yellow walls of their tranquil spa, the therapists at Body & Sole Spa banish stress with a blend of massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine. They use acupressure and reflexology techniques to help restore balance to organ systems and ease tension by targeting specific points on the body and feet, but they also achieve similar results with fine acupuncture needles. They dole out warm cups of healthful tea, made by the spa's teacher, and give clients the option of controlling the remote on their own personal TV, a rare privilege for those living with professional channel surfers.
At Foot Spa's locations in Plano and Richardson, the precise application of controlled pressure figures into every holistic treatment. Reflexologists stir mint flavored salt into soaking tubs, immersing clients' feet in the infused water before applying a therapeutic massage to the feet, hands, and ears. Acupressure massages are similar in spirit to acupuncture, except therapists use their fingers to target specific points along the body that stimulate natural healing processes and save their needles for hunting wild balloon animals.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care. Today, she guides her staff members as they administer treatments in one of six private rooms that offer a peaceful cloud-like environment enhanced by Far East decor and actual clouds that managed to skulk into the spa.
To the staffers at Highland Spa, each of their services is a way to make a client feel special. Unlike a sinking ship’s rescue boat, they welcome men, women, and children alike to indulge in luxurious mani-pedis, hydrating oxygen facials, or waxing treatments. The spa also houses a fleet of lasers that smoothes wrinkles and softens the appearance of body hair in a cozy, calm atmosphere.
