Each of the stylists at Bishop?s Salon & Day Spa goes through a rigorous training program before putting scissor to strands. Armed with knowledge, they use Aveda?s plant-based products to nourish hair during precision cuts and color treatments. The staff also clarifies complexions with facials and microdermabrasions, and lavishes feet with ingredients such as paraffin and chocolate during relaxing pedicures.
How does one start a skincare business with no equipment, products, or money? Kim Evans found herself in that predicament when she started her business immediately after passing the state boards. With nothing but faith and a strong work ethic, she began tending to her clients' skin needs inside a rented room of a small spa. She worked 80 hours per week and became a licensed massage therapist to expand her business into what it is today: a wellness spa that enhances the beauty and health of skin and body through spa services and massage. Inside 2Gorjis Integrated Health & Wellness, three private treatment rooms house clients as two skin therapists cleanse surfaces during custom facials, or wrap bodies in aromatherapy herbal linens. The staff members bolster natural features with eyelash extensions, meticulous body waxing, and makeup artistry that includes exclamation points drawn next to eyebrows.
Amid soothing sage-colored walls, patrons buckle in for body transforming in wraps designed to help shed weight and burn fat. Technicians gently fold their clients into toasty wraps that work to help sculpt leaner, smoother silhouettes capable of creating more aerodynamic shadow puppets. The shop?s repertoire of miocrodermabrasion, facial, waxing, and tanning treatments allows clients to ensure no inch goes unbeautified, and a collection of weight loss and anti-aging products for sale helps customers keep up the primping process long after guests leave the spa.
Love Thyself Day Spa provides ample opportunities to care for one's health with massage services, skin care treatments, colon hydrotherapy and eastern therapies. The spa's owner strives to help others to rejuvenate their minds, bodies, and spirits through holistic care.

It's an unexpected place to find a treadmill. The grand stone mansion that makes up Belfiore Salon & Day Spa and Belfiore Fitness Center teems with lush carpets, ornate furnishings, and framed art—even the changing room swaps out drab lockers and benches for dark wood cabinets with brass hardware and tufted leather seating. But despite its sumptuous appearance, Belfiore Fitness Center exists for the sole purpose of helping its members get healthy. In service of this goal, elliptical machines, treadmills, and recumbent bikes line the sun-drenched fitness area, helping users burn calories as a bounty of weight machines and free weights stand at the ready to build strong biceps or a new governor of California. Members can also follow personalized regimens in personal training sessions. Once workouts are complete, guests wind down in the dry sauna, the steam room, and the Jacuzzi, or recharge in the WiFi–equipped coffee bar.
With 11,000 square feet of lockers, private treatment rooms, and lounge-like waiting areas, Spa at Lake Ray Hubbard fully embraces its role as a luxuriant and stately oasis. Amid this royal setting, the staff members indulge and pamper their clients with high-end treatments that nourish the skin and hair with natural, organic products. Facials hydrate and exfoliate the cheekbones, although Spa At The Mansions also uses cutting-edge technology?including everything from diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands to infrared light?to dramatically improve skin tone and texture. The center?s contouring body wraps also help by creating svelte silhouettes and nourishing the skin with aloe, herbs, and powdered mermaid scales.
