Q&A with Ardeen Mendieta, Manager

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?

Yes I agree that beauty begins on the inside. When you're feeling good and confident it carries over to the outside, making you look and feel good

What's the most common beauty mistake you see people make? What would you recommend they do instead?

People create their own stress which makes them age faster. Beauty embodies the whole person and one must take care of their inner body. Life is about smelling the roses and enjoying yourself.

People go to spas to forget about the outside world. How does your decor help create an atmosphere where visitors can unwind?

We create a professional, friendly, and relaxing atmosphere.

Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services—though at different scales—as well as men’s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.

Naturopathic physician Dr. Theresa Ramsey, NMD and the staff at Center for Natural Healing help bolster body and mind with holistic wellness services. For swift wellness boosts, Dr. Ramsey injects three sets of B6 and nontoxic methylcobalamin B12 vitamins—which contain no traces of cyanide unlike other varieties of B12—to help spur energy and metabolism levels. Like mayoral run-off elections, guests may request shots weekly or twice weekly. Alternatively, torsos can stretch out for 60 minutes inside the hyperbaric oxygen chamber's sealed cylindrical tube, which fits one person or three crash-test dummies, and rejuvenates cells with 100% pressurized oxygen. Throughout the soothing session, operators speak into an intercom system to alert guests of instructions, such as performing exaggerated breaths or yawns to help clear ears for the initial pressure. Once the chamber reaches the appropriate pressure level, guests can rest, meditate, or don a headset to listen to the soothing resonance of silent-movie soundtracks.

Like a trip to the all-you-can-dance buffet, Jazzercise incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, and air-busting kickboxing. In 60 minutes of class, participants of all ages and levels will benefit from improving their cardio, strength, and flexibility while burning off up to 500 calories and improving their chances of impressing Kevin Bacon at a celebrity dance-a-thon. Dancing with the Stars two-time champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise’s improvisational workouts, but clients won’t need her encyclopedic knowledge of flashy footwork and spirit-fingered dance moves to get the most out of each class. Those prone to first-class jitters can review the basic moves before their shimmy session.

Heidi Lamar didn't know much about spas when she first purchased Spa Lamar. As she explained to reporters from Skin Inc., "not coming from a spa background, there were things I didn't know I couldn't do." Unhindered by industry conventions or previously fixed ideas, Heidi set about filling her 14,000-square-foot spa with innovative amenities—from a luxurious waterfall-fed pool to an onsite yoga and dance studio. She also cultivates locals instead of the typical resort crowd, banishing cacti from the decor in favor of a Caribbean-style ambiance that, as she told the Arizona Republic, caters to those who already live in Arizona and want to get away to a tropical island. Today, her media-lauded spa is the largest privately owned spa in Scottsdale and is frequented by locals, including members of the Phoenix Suns Dancers.

Before treatments that include massages, acupuncture, mani-pedis, and facials, guests garbed in fluffy complimentary robes duck into the steam room. They sample wholesome lunches and fruit plates from the tropical tea bar and relax in the sauna while waiting for a haircut or warm algae wrap. Sunbathers float around the pool on loungers, whereas others simmer in a bubbling whirlpool. Unlike many traditional spas, Spa Lamar is completely coed, making it an ideal place for couples that are on a first date or permanently trapped together inside a horse costume with a broken zipper.

After earning a degree in kinesiology in 1991, Jill Dailey McIntosh gravitated toward Pilates. She began training other teachers and helped run a personal-training and Pilates business, but she wasn't completely satisfied. She wanted her clients to be able to shape their bodies more aggressively without losing the proper alignment and form in a classroom-like setting. After visiting New York several times and training under Lotte Berk instructors, Jill was inspired to create her own fitness modality. Combining her background in kinesiology, personal training, and dance, she developed The Dailey Method at Barfitness Ballet Bar Studio. Today, her method has spread to more than 40 locations throughout the United States, Canada, and France.

A blend of Pilates, ballet, and yoga, The Dailey Method helps students strengthen and stretch the body's major muscle groups. Jill designed the low-impact classes to challenge bodies, minds, and spirit alike as students build their cores, align their spines, and tone lean muscles. Instructors help students master the proper form for each motion, whether they're swinging dumbbells or bellying up to the barre to work their quadriceps.
