Heavenly Hands Massage & Spa’s strong-thumbed therapists dissipate their clients' tension with the same massage techniques they have used to unwind professional athletes from the Utah Grizzlies, Blaze, and Bees. With this veteran experience, the staff focuses on alleviating chronic pain or injury-related discomfort through therapeutic methods that range from the standard modalities of Swedish and deep-tissue massage to the Eastern practices of Thai massage and ashiatsu. Ashiatsu—a centuries-old method born out of discomfort from pillows not being invented—evicts deep-seated tension by having massage therapists steady themselves on a bar anchored to the ceiling and apply pressure with targeted footsteps. To iron out energy kinks, a team of yoga instructors orchestrates classes that stretch and strengthen muscles while centering the mind. Hairstylists and aestheticians round out the bodily bolstering with expert styling and nine varieties of facial.
As a child, Erin Kump's favorite toy was the portable foot spa she used when giving her family members pedicures. Her favorite treats were the mud masks her mother would bring home for her from the drugstore. This interest in beauty blossomed into a career, and she became an aesthetician full time.
From their nook in Salon Rain & Day Spa, awash in soothing earth tones, Erin and her staff help work toward clients' aesthetic goals with a full roster of body treatments. Shelves brim with products from Image and HydroPeptide, which can be calibrated to help clear up acne, refresh lax skin, and empower patrons to fight signs of aging without drinking from fountains that conquistadors put their mouths all over. Beneath a sign reading “In the depths of the soul, everyone deserves to feel beautiful,” slow exhalations rustle the long leaves of live bamboo plants. Aestheticians slip past, leaving the scents of peppermint M’lis wraps and seasonal treatments in their wake.
Expansive, sunny windows illuminate the deep-red walls framing Mid City Salon’s elegant space, where trained aestheticians groom keratin-based parts with a range of treatments. Stylists revamp hair with trimming and chemical services that alter color and texture without attempting high-risk crayon implantation. Manicurists, meanwhile, outfit natural and acrylic nails in decorative swipes of polish, creating long-lasting style with CND Shellac applications or trendy designs such as cheetah print and flowers. Aestheticians can also rework façades with a quick brow and lip wax or a flawless makeup application. For offsite pampering, stylists arrive at homes during salon birthday parties to give girls aged 3 and older a chic updo, a smattering of glitter makeup, and polished nails that make them feel like adults without memorizing tax-return terminology.
As one of the Top 200 Salons in the United States as chosen by Redken and Pureology in 2011 and one-time Aesthetician of the Year according to the International Association of Aesthetics, The Shirodhara Day Spa and its owner, Eva Mileski, have a trophy case filled with more awards than Meryl Streep's attic. The cozy spa and salon creates a cottage-like atmosphere with creative décor to make guests feel relaxed and welcome for each treatment. New haircuts are born in the salon portion, and, through a pair of French doors, massage therapists and aestheticians wait to relax bodies with deep-tissue, Swedish, and other modalities or nurture complexions with facials. The Shirodhara Day Spa invites all spa guests to take a complimentary trip to the steam room to loosen up stiff muscles, sweat out toxins, and secretly open their neighbors’ junk mail.
Located in a historic building in downtown Escondido with two floors and 11,000 square feet of space where romanesque white columns and archways, Renaissance paintings, and a sparkling chandelier invoke the parlor of an Italian palace. Relaxing music puts guests at ease as they sit in antique-style armchairs, awaiting custom facials, body treatments, and salon services performed with herbal and botanical products. Duos can de-stress together in the couples massage room, and a garden room allows humans to get the sun they need for their stalks to grow.
