The signature treatment at BodyGEM has two parts. First, a massage therapist uses heated essential oils, aromatherapy, hot stones, and warm towels to relieve aches and tensions. Then, a scrub exfoliates feet or hands.
It's a lot of pampering at once, but even those who sign up for smaller doses are plied with plenty of little luxuries. Facials and mani-pedis come standard with extras such as steam, massage, and hot-stone and oil treatments. Guests who can hardly bear to leave can bring home customized BodyGEM products such as body lotions and soap scrolls that resemble rolled treasure maps, designed to trick pirates into taking a bath.

The King of Rock and Roll never relinquishes his throne as four of the country’s top Elvis impersonators team together for Elvis Lives, a multimedia musical tribute to one of music’s premier icons. Endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, which holds the copyright on blue suede shoes, Elvis Lives stars a quartet of bona fide dead ringers, all of whom are winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest and pay homage to four memorable eras of the pompadour-sporting legend’s career. Fans can swoon and shout as they catch a glimpse of tadpole Elvis and his centrifugal pelvis, movie-era Elvis, leather-jacket “comeback” Elvis, and shimmering, sequined-jumpsuit “Vegas” Elvis. The lavishly-produced show quantum leaps across a memorable career with classic songs sung spot-on, delighting fans and warming the heart of the real Elvis as he watches from the rafters.
Posh22 Salon and Spa may be owned by two master stylists, but this place is about much more than hair. That's largely because these stylists surround themselves with aestheticians and massage therapists who are also masters in their respective fields.
One trait the whole team shares is a passion for beauty, whether they're highlighting hair or brightening complexions with facials. Many of the treatments here go above and beyond what you might expect; aside from the traditional massage modalities, for example, there's a unique variety for expectant mothers that simulates the natural motions of labor.
