Concerto Salon & Spa is a style savvy, full-service salon that revitalizes and rejuvenates countenances to accentuate natural beauty. The highly trained team of stylists will transform fading follicles into coiffures more brilliant than a battalion of Einstein clones. Following a consultation, a tress tamer will unsheathe his well-oiled scissor fingers and use an encyclopedic knowledge of classic and contemporary fashions to sculpt a complementary face frame with a haircut and style (a $55 value). Then dermal detailers will smooth facial planes with a half-hour mini facial (a $45 value). Rid skin soil of wrinkles, dead cells, and perilous sand traps with a fleet of microscopic bulldozers that leave faces level and ready to be covered in decorative faux-fur tattoos. Finally, uproot real facial forests with an eyebrow wax (a $18 value), where Concerto Salon & Spa's arching artists will form forehead ornaments into pristine shapes.
Taking its French translation of "private spa" seriously, Spa Prive performs many of its treatments in private rooms cut off from the waiting area's more social arrangement of silk-like chairs and floral paintings. Muted lighting accompanies clients throughout the spa as they indulge in aesthetic and relaxation services that employ the power of Repêchage, PCA Skin, and Bioelements products. Licensed aestheticians treat acne with specialized facials, administer PCA peels on faces and backs, and landscape bodily forests with waxing services. Fingers and toes lose their troublesome hangnails and back-talking cuticles at the skilled hands of nail technicians, and Swedish, deep-tissue, and pregnancy massage release tensions from the body and into the wild.
Much of our anxiety stems from the brain, so perhaps it makes sense that its antithesis, relaxation, would begin at the body's other end. The staff of SunShine Foot Massage takes countermeasures against stress by masterfully kneading their clients' soles. They draw their techniques from reflexology principles, which identify pressure points on the foot that correspond to different areas on the physique. Though staff members don't claim that their treatments are medically curative, they stand by the treatments’ calming capabilities—their foot massages can encourage serenity in the face of both mental tension and the common cold.
As its services tame knotted muscles, the venue's surroundings contribute to further tranquility. Depending on the location, patrons might enter through a door of black polished bamboo before reclining in a plush chair, partitioned from others by bamboo dividers. They can complement their massage with a foot soak in a milk-bath mixture, submerging their heels for as long as they'd like, or until they are suddenly stuck in a block of cheese. Private rooms are also available for massages with full-body coverage.
Behind the decorative changing screens at Magic Foot Massage, a quiet sanctuary welcomes guests onto reclining, padded beds. The glow of paper lanterns illuminates the hands of trained therapists, whose fingers deftly apply focused pressure onto client feet. The spots that they knead aren't random—they're practicing the ancient art of Chinese reflexology, a method based around the claim that parts of the foot correspond to different areas of the body. By massaging these nodes, the staff hopes to bring relaxation and balance to the entire self.
In conjunction with their reflexology treatments, they also offer body massages. Patrons can split their appointment into a combined foot- and body-massage session, and opt for the VIP treatment to choose their preferred lotions and oils. The pampering services can boast both physical and mental effects, coaxing tension from overworked muscles, enhancing blood flow, and clearing the mind without first putting a leaf blower against your ear.
At Blue Sand Mind & Body, a group of practitioners comes together to ply its signature trade: traditional Thai massage. Generally considered more rigorous than other modalities, Thai massage mixes stretching maneuvers with deep and targeted pressure. For those who prefer a more relaxing massage, the staff is equally proficient at Swedish, Hawaiian lomilomi, and hot-stone massage, among other treatments. Like a really good wide receiver, Blue Sand is open every day of the week and caters to those with busy schedules by staying open until 8 p.m. each day.
As the name indicates, the staff at Dermal Dynamics specialize in treating the dermis. The aestheticians and massage artists work on all things skin, even its underlying tissues. Through microdermabrasion, they create clear complexions. The Dermal Dynamics team also tends to eyelash extensions, massage therapy, cellulite treatments, and waxing.
