Island Life Spa's staff pampers guests under the expert guidance of spa director and massage therapist Tina Marie Mayr, who has 20 years of experience owning and operating spas. Guests can relax with hot-stone massages, revitalize their complexion with aromatherapeutic skincare treatments in private rooms, or stop in on Wednesdays for acupuncture sessions.
From within Queens' Club Fitness, Infinity Spa Salon strikes an effective balance between natural skincare and advanced aesthetic treatments. Located a short distance from New York City, aestheticians clear and brighten complexions with seven types of facials infused with vitamin C and hydroquinone-free lightening ingredients, and they also use the exfoliating powers of mechanical microdermabrasion. Unwanted hairs can be effortlessly removed using an all-natural, beeswax-infused formula from GiGi or the advanced technology of an Alma Soprano XL laser, which permanently removes hair from any skin type including ghosts' see-through complexions. In massage treatment rooms, therapists rely on 10 different modalities, including the ancient techniques of Thai massage and shiatsu, to release tight muscles and improve circulation.
Infinity's focus on harmony is also apparent in the salon and spa's interior design, which melds contemporary decor with natural earth elements, such as bamboo plants and warm brown walls.
For nearly 12 years now, the massage experts at Armando's Day Spa have tailored each massage to address and correct conditions ranging from poor posture to chronic pain. With a combined total of more than 2,000 hours of instruction, the team knows just where to place hot stones to melt pent-up tension, as well as the exact therapeutic techniques that can help muscles recover from injuries sustained in the workplace, on the sports field, or following an automobile accident. But their soothing services don't stop at massage. Body wraps corral the power of volcanic earth clay to increase circulation and help expel toxins, and facials with microcurrent technology help retrain facial muscles and reduce their dependency on battery power. Even the nail services at Armando's can have therapeutic benefits—the spa's signature manicures and pedicures blend in seaweed masks, mineral clay, and other vitamins and marine extracts to help soothe arthritis and reduce joint inflammation, leaving hardworking appendages feeling as healthy as they look.
Serenity Spa’s beauty professionals enhance the body’s natural healing process with holistic treatments that incorporate natural ingredients such as sea algae, banana leaves, and doTERRA essential oils. In private treatment rooms, licensed aestheticians enhance facials and rejuvenate skin with acupressure massage, crystal microdermabrasion, and lessons on new facial expressions. Muscle therapists practice more than 10 types of massage including the aromatherapy signature massage with hot towels and scalp massage. To further encourage relaxation, Serenity offers mani-pedis with paraffin treatments, aromatic foot soaks, or detoxifying scrubs. The Far infrared sauna, a complement to many spa treatments, purges toxins and helps reduce swelling by surrounding the body with heat.
The experienced aestheticians and massage therapists at GreenLeaf Day Spa perform a spectrum of services to wash away everyday stresses and unpretty frowns. During a massage, a licensed massage therapist employs essential oils and lotions to help release tension in muscles and joints. Alternatively, facials infuse skin surfaces with a combination of organic ingredients from GreenLeaf’s signature product line. Waxing treatments can remove unwanted hair without the hassle of shaving or rolling in a pile of duct tape, and ionic foot detoxification draws out detritus and stale sawdust from the body. Acupuncture, makeup applications, and manicures ensure that clients look and feel their best when going out into the world or singing "You Are My Sunshine" to their boss.
