Sarah, the trained hands behind Massage by Sarah, offers more than two handfuls of upgrades to her Swedish, sports, and deep-tissue massages. Her sessions can be complemented with nearly a dozen extras, including heated stones, hot towels, a full-body salt glow, and skin-softening paraffin wax.
Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, micro needling, and botox the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
White Raven Spa Company's staff of licensed practitioners work to bring balance to bodies with holistic treatments informed by owner Jenna's Native American heritage. A medicine minister certified by her tribal council, Jenna incorporates healing herbs into body wraps and scrubs that attempt to flush toxins from bodies. These treatments hearken back to the purification rituals undertaken by members of some native cultures after a hanblecheyapi, or vision quest.
Other treatments, such as lymphatic-drainage massages and ionic footbaths, also aim to detoxify, but the comprehensive spa's menu of services doesn't stop there. Wellness experts guide patrons during weight-control and life-coaching sessions, and reiki practitioners attempt to realign a body's energy. All the healing is jump-started with complimentary cups of organic herbal tea.
Beauty comes in all forms. At Lotus Spa, beauty isn't only reserved for the clients who come in for classic and specialty spa services, including waxing and threading. It is also extended to the exquisite crystal chandeliers, intricately designed copper ceiling tiles and richly colored baroque textiles that decorate the spa.
Soft lighting soothes clients as aestheticians scrub bodies with exfoliating mixtures of sugar and oil or pamper clients with a Lotus Fusion massage—a combination of deep-tissue, hot-stone, and aromatherapy styles. Aestheticians brighten complexions with three kinds of chemical peels designed to melt away layers of dead skin and old Halloween masks absorbed into the skin.

How did you get started in the beauty industry?
I was a physical therapist before I became a massage therapist.
A hot towel soothingly loosens up pores at the outset of Royal Pampering Day Spa's signature facial treatment, where a mask of massaging cleanser and a toner exfoliates away dead skin cells. Facials like this one take up just a portion of the menu filled with relaxing spa services. Skin care professionals with more than 10 years of experience knead bodies with styles such as deep-pressure, sports, and therapeutic massage as visitors lay atop heated beds in one of seven treatment areas. Staffers also offer packages that include hand-and-foot treatments for girls and moms, as well as makeup and updos for brides-to-be.
