Kalologie 360 Spa's expert beauty gurus offer a first-class selection of pampering services, earning the franchise a spot on Elle magazine's 2008 list of Top 10 Beauty Boutiques. The staff exfoliates faces with more than 10 varieties of facials and peels, using the boutique's own line of products custom formulated from medical-grade ingredients free of parabens and sulfates. Therapists also treat clients with massage modalities such as Swedish, shiatsu, and deep-tissue, as well as waxing treatments that use specially formulated hard and soft wax for all areas of the body. Airbrush spray tans round out the menu of services, leaving bodies with a bronze hue similar to that achieved by bathing in a tub of melted-down doorknobs.
The aestheticians at Body & Soul Spa have demonstrated weight-loss techniques on the news for Good Morning Arizona and ABC and bring similar expertise to a full slate of beauty services as diverse as a private detective's collection of fake mustaches.

For a longer escape from everyday stress, Body & Soul's spa packages combine soothing treatments in visits that can last up to 4.5 hours.
