The technicians at Sultry Skin Spa rejuvenate, tighten, and slim bodies with noninvasive, modern technology. A roster of facials and chemical peels helps erase the signs of aging, and medical-grade lasers blast away unwanted hair from legs and bowls of soup. The Mabel Plus machine strives not only to firm up lax skin but also to smooth out cellulite with radio-frequency (RF) energy. The Luvitra device sculpts problem areas by deflating fat cells with ultrasonic energy.
New Image Day Spa staffs an experienced team of 23 massage therapists and 13 master aestheticians. The 30-minute classic facial begins with a skin analysis to map out each face's unique layout of caves, valleys, and rivers. After determining an appropriate course of action, aestheticians barrage pores with custom cleansing, exfoliating, masking, and moisturizing.
The stylists at Artistic Illusions Salon refurbish scruffy heads with a full slate of hair-beautifying services. Stylists enlist top-quality products from Matrix—which has lines customized to suit several hair textures—as they transform hair and mold it into replicas of Big Ben. When they're not revamping dull hair with rich hues or lopping off split ends, they soak it in soothing solutions to leave it silky and refreshed.
Krista Call's passion for massage therapy started as an interest in aromatherapy. She has used essential oils for the past 24 years, choosing, for example, lavender oil for bug bites, tea-tree oil for its cleansing effects, and peppermint for allergic reactions to reindeer. Eventually she began receiving reflexology treatments at the location where she bought her oils, which made her realize how crucial the mind-body connection is to health. She became a licensed massage therapist, desiring to share massage's myriad physical and emotional benefits with others.
At Soothing Days Massage Therapy, Call specializes in therapeutic Swedish and prenatal sessions and gently heats towels or stones to enhance circulation and relaxation. She loosens muscles at spa parties and bridal showers and can also travel to offices or sporting events to perform chair massages.
Gossip’s dedicated staff shear and style local head rugs and finger ceilings with a focus on fashion and personalized attention.

Harness unruly skull tentacles with a haircut, followed by your choice of color change with a blow-dry and style. Or feel free to enlist the specialist for just a blow-dry and styling. Meanwhile, guests can rest cuticles comfortably in cozy nail beds as Gossip’s enamel experts shape, buff, and varnish each hand hook, smooth out rough palms, and mediate civil thumb wars.
In the comfort of a private room, Just Massages' therapists consult with clients and their old school yearbooks to determine the most probable source of stress to meet each client's unique needs. A deep-tissue massage utilizes intense pressure to loosen buried muscular knots, and a Swedish massage channels the long, flowing strokes of '70s disco fever to promote blood circulation to the appendages. Pregnancy massages, couples-massage lessons, warm tables and hot-oil massages are also available.
Striking Image's attentive team of stylists performs beautifying treatments and aesthetic maintenance with a full range of salon services.
