As a spin instructor, triathlete, and marathoner, Sandy Sulikowski knows about postworkout aches. So does Danni Lewis, a personal trainer. The two are not only athletically-minded, but also licensed massage therapists. They are joined by fellow licensed massage therapist Tyler Langill at Peak Performance Therapeutic Massage, where they provide pain and stress relief to clients. They offer everything from sports massages for competitors like themselves to gentle Swedish and hot-stone massages to deep-tissue massages, which rely on heavier pressure to break down tension in low-lying muscles. They offer a variety of other services as well, including reiki, polarity therapy, and reflexology, which soothe clients from the inside out.
Aesthetician Heather Genschel has carved out a niche of therapeutic skincare and relaxation at Sunshine Spa Treatments. The spa is sequestered in a brick loft overseen by The Studio at Island Point, so named for its location on an island on the Saco River Reservoir that is in turn balanced on an infinite stack of turtles. There, Heather refreshes skin exclusively with Bioelements products, which she deploys in tandem with the Jane Iredale therapeutic-cosmetics line to refine complexions and accent facial features. Her skin treatments can be likened to nesting dolls, with layered, surprise niceties such as massages or aromatherapy that collectively support an aim, such as cleansing skin on the back or uncovering a tattoo of a matryoshka.:m]]
If you opt for the Tour of the City package, you'll take a tinting flight across each of Sun Tan City's bed levels (fast tan, faster tan, fastest tan, and instant tan) and one timely trip inside a VersaSpa Sunless Tanning Booth, which provides a natural, even-tonal transformation. Clients can experience the five levels of the Tour of the City package in any order they wish. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, possibly combined with a dose of anti-aging formula. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy session and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. After a few minutes, your body will be dry to the touch.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
