Aesthetician Danielle Kriege long believed in the transformative power of holistic bodywork and medicine. Her interest in whole-body treatments and alternative skincare led to her training as a master reiki therapist, and she continues to hone her cross-disciplinary expertise as the owner of White Lotus Wellness Center.
Now, Danielle bolsters the mental and physical tranquility of her clients with treatments for the body and skin. Detoxifying herbal body wraps and ionic foot baths evict pent-up poisons from their bodily hiding places, and an infrared-sauna treatment helps rid the body of cellulite. Her reiki sessions break up traffic jams in the body?s energy pathways, targeting pressure points along the feet that correspond to systems throughout the body.
In addition to healing inner trouble spots, Danielle also targets outer issues with custom beauty treatments. Custom facials and skin peels exfoliate the body?s all-important outer layer, and gentle brow-tinting and facial waxing treatments rein in unruly hair around the face's most expressive areas. In addition to her everyday service, Danielle helps clients prep for their biggest moments with bridal and event makeup packages.
At Fusion Salon & Spa, a team of aestheticians relies on products from brands such as DermaQuest, Davines, and jane iredale as they enhance clients' natural beauty with skin, nail, and hair treatments. Facials revitalize complexions with custom masks and vitamin-rich serums, whereas mani-pedis decorate nails with colorful Bio Sculpture gel or chip-resistant Shellac polish. Meanwhile, stylists shape locks into vibrant coiffures, offering tips on how to maintain the new hairdo without covering your head forever in a hyperbaric helmet.
As Willadare Spa's owner and operator, aesthetician Lauren Matteson guides clients on beautification journeys that begin with the selection of a facial. Then Lauren treats hands with scented oils, wraps them in a cocoon of plastic, and snuggles them in a heat pocket where they can comfortably melt into warm mozzarella cheese. All facials include cleansing, steaming, exfoliation, extractions, and treatment mask, and all but the back facial also include a face, neck, and shoulder massage. The European facial ($75 value) is individually tailored to each client like a pair of Italian pantaloons, and the hydration facial ($80 value) helps to restore moisture deep in skin's lower lairs. The deep pore-cleansing facial ($85 value) attacks acne by targeting acne-causing bacteria and dispatching an army of products that are far less likely to turn dangerously sentient than acne-fighting nano-robots. Collagen-thirsty faces can drink in the vitamin C facial ($95 value), which is designed to reduce signs of aging such as skin tone discoloration and fine lines. Altruistic fronts can choose the back facial ($85 value) as a sign of solidarity with their often-neglected counterpart, and Lauren tends to the body's other left-out elements with a foot and leg massage as facial masks set.

Nestled in the relaxation residence of Shanti and Jai Hudes, Be and Be Well’s soundproof flotation tank provides a meditative sensory-deprivation experience that can rejuvenate both body and mind. The warm, enclosed cocoon swaddles tired torsos in shadowy serenity as stress-induced strains are cunningly lured from their cellular lairs by waters saturated with Pied Piper epsom salts. Cloistered from the constant babble of cell phones and ventriloquist chanteuses, gray matter has ample time to ruminate upon life’s big questions as limbs perfect their levitating magician’s assistant impressions.
