Wielding years of experience as a registered massage therapist, Lori Regush softens stiff muscles and eases aching joints through therapeutic massage techniques. Clients can choose to recline for thirty minutes or a full hour as Lori stimulates the circulatory and nervous systems by canvassing specific pain points with precise pressure and convincing transcendental arguments. The therapy blends a range of strokes to treat ailments such as sports injury, stress, pain from pulling insolent root vegetables, and chronic stiffness. For added relaxation, patrons may soak up detoxifying rays wafting through the complimentary infrared sauna before or after their massage.
Most businesses rest on a foundation of steel or concrete, but owner Karen Legendre founded Spa Cantik on a single word—a word she learned while traveling through Indonesia: Chant’ tik. Defined as ‘beautiful, lovely, enchanting,’ Spa Cantik doubly mirrors its definition. The luxurious spa is decorated in rich earth-toned colors, towering framed mirrors, and antique furniture. But the décor is not the only embodiment of Chan’ tik; traditional spa and salon services, such as haircuts, nail care, and facials, become VIP excursions in the hands of the attentive staff. And exotic treatments such as Javanese Lulur body treatments—once practiced in Indonesian palaces— and wasabi and organic ginger baths, share the essence of Chan’ tik with every guest.

Able hands employ Swedish massage techniques as the boulder beads greet key points of the body to stimulate circulation and release any tension or toxins squatting in the epaxial muscles of the back. The 60-minute massage-therapy session relieves stress more effectively than an evening spent popping bubble wrap and restores range of motion so that top-shelf candy can be reached with ease ($63).

Pure Blyss Tanning & Day Spa specializes in creating glowing, healthy skin with UV tanning beds and nourishing topical treatments. Staff members diligently change the bulbs on a collection of seven booths and beds, two of which deliver "high-pressure" UVA wavelengths that penetrate deep into the skin for rich, long-lasting colour. Dark Escape lotion speeds tanning while conditioning the skin with vitamin E, and custom Casmara gel masks bathe pores in algae and botanicals to leave faces with an even, firm texture and tone. To heal cracked heels and yellowed toenails, nail technicians lavish feet in hydrating Footlogix mousse, whose oil-free, breathable formula is safe for diabetics to wear in the bathtub in lieu of a bubble beard.
