Whether you need regular therapy for pain or just a one-hour vacation during the day, Lori Bazzetta at Massage for your Health has a variety of techniques to help relax the muscles and soothe the nervous system.

A child covered in an ice-cream sundae is usually headed straight for a bath and a time-out. At CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room, however, they're pampered. At the spa, girls are encouraged to soak in soothing ice-cream baths made with their choice of sundae flavors. At spa stations decorated with cheerfully bright pinks and blues, kids can exfoliate their pores with a fruity facial made from natural ingredients or conclude manicures and pedicures with nontoxic Piggy Paint and sprinkles. Makeup sessions further pamper youngsters with beautifying touches such as lipstick, blushes, and facial gems.
Along with pampering children at the spa, CupCakes & IceCream Kids Spa and Party Room hosts soirees that treat girls like royalty. Built around such themes as Diva Bash and Pajama Jam, two-hour parties include decadent options such as Candy Coated polished nails, facials, or updos. Runway fashion shows and karaoke sessions fill the rest of the time, as can add-ons such as a craft station or lessons in boxing out during bouquet tosses.
Belle Sante Spa’s team of massage therapist and aestheticians helps clients feel confident and relaxed with an array of spa services.

Likewise, facial treatments range from fast mini-facials to moon-stone facials that combine cold stones with hot steam to rejuvenate skin and reduce sinus pressure. Massage therapists specialize in a variety of modalities so customers looking to relax after attempting to shoot some hoops with a bowling ball can find the perfect treatment to meet their needs.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights.

Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
For more than 20 years, Studio Styling has rode the fringe of the latest beauty trends through continuing education classes. It’s here where nail tech Roanne Swaneck deftly paints fingers with long-lasting Shellac, as well as polishes the talons of a beloved claw-foot tub. Roanne works alongside skilled stylists, who can cultivate a designer cut, layer subtle or bold color highlights, or de-frizz locks with formaldehyde-free Pravana straightening.
Since opening its doors more than 20 years ago, Sundays Sun Spa—formerly known as Sundays Tanning Salon—has become the go-to place for guests looking to get bronze and lean in a spa-like environment. Curtains and crawling vines line the earth-toned studio, where certified staff members fastidiously maintain each piece of equipment with a 10-point sanitation procedure. Airbrush artists craft custom tans with a gold-plating mist made from natural, paraben-free ingredients. Their selection of high-pressure horizontal and standing UV beds sport fresh lamps for quick doses of color. To help slenderize bodies, they power up the Formostar infrared-body-wrap system, which is designed to boost metabolic rates and diminish cellulite while burning calories during a relaxing treatment.
