The staff at Urban Retreat Spa & Salon believe that physical beauty begins with a healthy attitude. While cultivating a positive vibe inside a comfortable spa setting, they offer a full range of services that use cutting-edge techniques for skincare, body waxing, and nail treatments. Massages in a number of modalities, including pregnancy, hot-stone, and deep-tissue, relax muscles, and laser treatments—including skin rejuvenation and hair removal—show off the spa's high-tech equipment. In addition to beautifying services, Urban Retreat maintains the Whimsy Clothing Boutique, where stylists match shoppers to eclectic fashions.
Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
Skin Organic Lipo Laser Clinic's technicians rely on noninvasive LipoLaser treatments to spot treat fat on problem areas, such as the hips, thighs, and abdomen. The laser energy penetrates down to the fat cells and temporarily perforates their membranes. This action causes the fat cells to release their contents into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The body then flushes out the expelled contents via the lymphatic system or burns them for energy. The technicians use a laser system that, in comparison to other brands, exposes larger surface areas to the laser light.
Skin Organic's staffers often enhance the LipoLaser treatments with whole-body-vibration sessions and supplements such as raspberry ketones. They also wield microcurrent devices in order to perform nonsurgical face-lifts.
