The beauty professionals at Indira Salon and Spa foster serenity with eco-conscious Aveda products. As stylists trim, dye, and texture hair, aestheticians revive skin with Aveda's signature plant-based facials. The staff infuses each of their services with extra touches of luxury, such as soothing noses stressed by bickering eyebrows with aromatherapy during elemental massages and offering complimentary makeup touchups after waxing. Nail technicians lavish hands and feet with masques, steam towels, and massages during even their most basic manicures and pedicures, some of which also include foot reflexology or balms made from ginger, mango, cocoa, and lime.
Massage therapist Mia Corvin possesses a unique respect for the art of massage. More than just a pampering treat, she believes that massage's healing touch is vital to a well-balanced life. To Mia, awakening the senses and savoring tranquil silence—features inherent to a massage studio—are hardly superfluous. They're the things that make life worth living. She created Elixir Vitae Spa to share these essentials with others.
Named after the Latin phrase for the alchemical "elixir of life," the spa lives up to its mystically medicinal name. There, healing massages deliver non-invasive therapies powered by gliding Swedish strokes, deep-tissue pressure, and heat from simmering volcanic stones. Clients can also extend their calming treatment with a full list of add-ons, which range from aromatherapy sessions powered by essential botanical oils to steamy hot towel foot wraps.
Home is where the heart is, which is why Terri Tabor’s hometown of Riverside was the ideal setting for Salon D'Amore. But staying close to home doesn’t keep this salon owner in the dark when it comes to cutting-edge trends. Rather, she arms her staff with Pureology, La-Brasiliana, and Perfection SmoothOut products to update coifs and tame frizz. When it comes to highlights, they use the paint-by-hand balayage technique to give locks a sun-kissed or idyllic-seascape appearance. The full-service salon and spa also soothes muscles with heated stones, and gives nails long-lasting shine with no-chip mani-pedis.
Licensed massage therapist Vernon Lamp illuminates the silver linings in achy muscle clouds with his healing bodywork. Drawing on more than 14 years of experience, Vernon can administer relaxing Swedish strokes or access deeper aches with deep-tissue or trigger-point therapy. Pranic energy healing and acupressure are also available to decongest life energy pathways and promote wellness.
Unless you're one of the lucky humans who can age backwards, your body needs regular maintenance if it's to last. That's why the skilled aestheticians at Dolce Vita Day Spa keep the mind and body tuned up with rejuvenating and beautifying body treatments. Clients can opt for voluminous lash extensions or retreat to a private room for Swedish or hot-stone bodywork from licensed massage therapist Justyna Gomula.
