The professionals at King Feet Massage help clients find balance between body, mind, and spirit. Massage therapists utilize an array of modalities to render relaxation, pain relief, and lymphatic drainage. To enhance treatment, they can fill the air with aromatherapy or soothe muscles with warm basalt stones that cause stress to melt faster than a blushing snowman. The staff's areas of expertise also include acupuncture and reflexology, which uses pressure points in feet to maximize overall wellness.
Guests commonly encounter giant celebrities at Lemon Spa Perfect Health Club, where movies play on a 13-foot projection screen during mani-pedis. Each of the two areas was designed to give group functions an opulent vibe—pedicure chairs and a plush couch face the DVD display while soft lighting lends the space a golden glow. As they undergo their nail services, which can range from a standard manicure to a decadent, chocolate-themed pedicure, patrons can watch one of the spa's easygoing comedies or Benny Hill gag reels they've brought from home. Since their inception, the spaces have welcomed bridal showers, birthday gatherings, and, in 2007, a Michael Bublé CD release party.
Though the other treatments take place in private rooms, they maintain the venue's movie-star theme. Nu Skin and Ÿum facial products perk up complexions, massages quiet muscular aches, and body scrubs exfoliate pores with plant and cocoa extracts. Visitors can also combine procedures into packages such as the Paparazzi Protection: a massage and facial administered in seclusion so that aestheticians needn't work around incognito stars' dark glasses.
During hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), clients breathe pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber to help treat anything from the bends to burns. This unique treatment inundates clients' blood, tissue, and swim bladders with life-affirming oxygen, promoting healing and internal repair. Richmond Hyperbaric Health Centre is home to two multi-person hyperbaric chambers where groups of two to six relax together, breathing in this beneficial air. To enhance HBOT's effects, the centre often couples it with other alternative medicine treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and colon hydrotherapy.
Owner Alice Chung has 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, and she and her team of aestheticians leverage their expertise to nourish skin at Harmonic Spa & Beauty. They render facials with product lines such as Ingrid Millet, Jean D’Arcel, and DiBi. Alice and co. also pamper and primp with massages, hair removal, and body-slimming treatments. Along with seven private treatment rooms, the spa includes a sizeable steam room—which is what The Flash’s field house is called when his shoes have a high coefficient of friction.
The technologically advanced treatment rooms at Dermascience Laser & Skin Care are almost as enticing as the celebrity-endorsed treatments that take place inside them. With an iPad, iPod, or iPhone, patrons can play their own device's movies onto a high-definition television screen or watch Netflix movies, television shows, and YouTube videos while enjoying services such as infrared sauna dry-heat therapy, which can burn up to 600 calories in a 30-minute session. Among the centre's main attractions are its Intraceuticals oxygen facials, prized by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Madonna, which leave skin dewy and hydrated. Boosts of bronze come courtesy of environmentally friendly and organic SunFX spray tanning, which comes in three colour levels for a beach-friendly, natural look. To further keep skin glowing, diamond microdermabrasion buffs away fine lines, acne scars, and stubborn crumbs you always thought were freckles. As aestheticians move beyond the face, waxing services and laser hair-removal treatments prettify fuzz-ridden areas while clients remain comfortable atop each treatment room's heated bed.
