Marengo Luxury Spa resides within The Arcade—a retail oasis formerly known as "Cleveland's crystal palace." Founded in 1890, The Arcade rises five stories high, summiting at a glass ceiling that spans the area of a football field. On the way to Marengo Luxury Spa, patrons traverse Roman marble walkways and pass gilded carvings, iron balconies, and cast-iron griffins. Upon arrival, clients consult with a spa specialist who personalizes a treatment plan that may include massage therapy or treatments for skin, hair, or nails. Throughout appointments, clients enjoy a variety of refreshments including coffee and biscotti or herbal tea and blocks of tofu. Calling itself "a perfect sanctuary in which to retreat and discover a new you," Marengo Luxury Spa exudes the palatial ambiance of The Arcade itself.
The luxurious manicure and pedicure at this upscale yet inviting salon and spa allows finger and toe bearers to unclench and unwind. The friendly, professional nailsmiths will soak and exfoliate winter-dried dermis before trimming, buffing, shaping, and polishing your bodily bouquet of phalanges. Natural Beauty Salon & Spa uses only top-of-the-line and all-natural botanical-based products to leave your extremities more soft and sparkly than a biscuit with glitter butter.
Vanity Avenue's custom spray tanning uses personalized formulas for different skin types. Vanity Avenue's organic-based product aims to steer clear of orange skin; instead, your skin tone will approach that of an evenly toned, beautiful third-place medal. Each session takes less than five minutes and lasts 10 days. Whether you're trying to impress a blind date, properly pamper your skin before a wedding, or one-up a sunnied coworker, spray tans are an excellent choice for a quick coat of butterscotch derma-topping.
Licensed nail professional Aisha L. McCaleb and the team at A-Spot Nail Studio & Spa give fingers and toes an elegant transformation with custom mani-pedis. Patterned white furnishings provide a sleek counterbalance to the spa’s pink walls, creating an aura of pampering and indulgence that’s mirrored by nail treatments that include hot stones and exfoliating hand and foot scrubs. Nail technicians draw from a spectrum of OPI polish colors at the conclusion of mani-pedis, resulting in nails that look so groomed they can be dunked in a punch bowl without offending other partygoers.
At Basic Essentials, a team of certified professionals offers a gamut of forward-thinking salon and massage services. An experienced electrologist permanently stunts hair growth during electrolysis, and wax specialists temporarily evict encroaching hairs and misplaced birthday candles with face and body waxing. The clinic's master teacher of reiki—who is certified in the practice's highest level—optimizes intra-body energy flow during reiki sessions.
At Whole Essential 4 U Massage Studio, therapists excel in many different styles of massage, each of which can be augmented with indulgent add-ons and extras. While clients enjoy a relaxing Swedish massage, multiple masks can help tighten skin on the face or around the eyes. Aromatherapy is included with each type of massage, including deep tissue sessions and hot stone massages, which call upon the therapeutic properties of heat to help release endorphins and decrease cramping caused by arthritis. On top of in-studio treatments, the therapists can also take their massage tables on the road for events as well as for treatments administered at their clients' homes, hotels, offices, or panic rooms.
