The multitalented staff at Sweet & Sassy allow girls to walk in the slippers of their favorite fairytale princesses with an array of salon and spa services. Youngsters get gussied up for special occasions, such as tea parties with stuffed animals and UN delegates, with spa packages that include colorful manicures, soothing facials, and expert makeup applications. Sweet & Sassy’s birthday celebrations treat girls aged 4–13 to themed outings such as a Pop Star party, during which the birthday girl and her friends get dolled up to film a music video, which they can take home on a DVD.
Following the lead of owner and knead master Marisol Fitzgerald, massage therapists at Namaste Organic Spa provide warm, skillful kneads to melt muscle tension and untangle tricky knots. The Swedish technique employs long, gliding, light- to medium-pressure strokes to increase healthy blood flow (which subsequently sends oxygen and nutrients to the cells), calm the nervous system, and say sayonara to the stress that makes millions of Americans eat dry spaghetti every night before bedtime. Because the therapists at Namaste Organic Spa make sure to make use of every minute, you will emerge from your hour-long session with an internal playlist of soothing wave sounds that loops in compliance with standard time.
Hot stones and aromatherapy oils gently glide across the body inside private rooms at @ease Spa, unwinding tight muscles and calming tense minds. Aromatherapy is also used during facials to rebalance the complexion and make sure clients don't leave with their faces smelling like regular old skin. Other relaxing services at the spa include a full-body sugar or Dead Sea mud rub and Jin Shin Jyutsu, an ancient technique where light pressure is applied to 26 specific points on the body to relieve aches and improve respiration. No matter the treatment, the spa's massage therapists are glad to customize pressure to each guest's liking, and afterward, a complimentary sauna and shower await.
Happy, healthy, and satisfied clients are the goal at Body Connections Spa, which offers a trio of services all designed to meet that aim. Therapists and aestheticians on staff specialize in massage therapy, detoxifying LED therapy, and customized, organic spray tans made from free-range sunbeams. The LED therapy takes place in a futuristic-looking chamber called the SlimLine Oxygen Pod, which envelops you in aromatherapy and pure oxygen while lights work to relieve pain, torch calories, and remove toxins.
The soft warmth of a terry-cloth robe sashaying across the shins. The gentle pressure of a complimentary scalp rub during a honey-oatmeal or peppermint body wrap. The Mezzaluna Day Spa experience is all about the little things, so the house aestheticians ensure bodies luxuriate from head to toe-tip. After promoting circulation with a Mezzaluna signature stone massage, patrons can recondition mugs with Dermalogica products, de-fuzz under the practiced wrist flicks of a waxing guru, or utilize a steam room or private shower to fog up the face of a clownish magic mirror.
