Heralded by KMBC as Kansas City's First Place Best Day Spa, La Vita Bella transports patrons toward the realms of relaxation with custom massage, facials, and body treatments. To begin the ultimate revitalizing peel and facial package, clients make a beeline to the relaxation room, where an aromatic neck wrap supplants the talons of pet parrots and a lavender paraffin hand treatment hydrates digits. Next, spa denizens sashay into the treatment room, where an aesthetician cleanses, tones, and exfoliates tired and weathered visages. A choice of papaya-pumpkin or aloe-azulene mask graces faces, followed by a moisturizing lip and eye treatment. A cocoa-butter foot treatment and upper-back massage extends the pampering parade across the entire body boulevard. Or, opt for an hour-long La Vita Bella facial, where faces are cleansed and steamed, then gently exfoliated with extractions. After a mask and moisturizing treatment, bodies are soothed by a face, neck, and hand or foot massage.
Enamored with holistic healing from a young age, Inner Wisdom's owner Billie Tobin, along with a dedicated team of trained staffers, customizes wellness services aiming to detoxify any harmful impurities while balancing clients' minds, bodies, and spirits. During the one-hour massage, psyches can drift off into a peaceful place as a trained massage guru employs modalities from one of four techniques, including prenatal or lymphatic muscle-kneads. The Swedish massage pampers sinews with long, soothing strokes, and the deep-tissue treatment zeroes in on specific points of concerns with firm pressure, relieving knotted backs and unwinding sore shoulder blades tightly corseted together.
Coloroom's savvy stylists work with customers to snip hair into edgy razor cuts or classic bobs, and bring a smoother smile to faces. Posttrim, help locks gleam with a set of highlights, creating subtle or dramatic contrasts and underlining points that are likely to be on an exam. As the color solution sets in, a skincare expert will use cotton to gently swab the face with a glycolic-peel solution. For 15 minutes, the exfoliant will work its way into the surface, sloughing off dead cells that impede the body's natural Lite-Brite glow, which can shine on for three weeks after treatment. Beauty seekers can expect their stay to last roughly two hours.

Conveniently located near the Kansas City medical center, A Sacred Place for Healing acts as an oasis for those in need of pain relief and relaxation. Helmed by Angela Reed, an experienced massage therapist who enjoys working one-on-one with clients, guests can treat themselves to a range of massage modalities. Angela dishes out Swedish treatments to pamper her patients and also administers energy-based reiki sessions. In order to treat chronic pain or soreness caused by sitting through a public reading of the entire dictionary, Angela uses deep-tissue techniques that dig down into musculature to tackle lingering back pain.
Within Sixsixty Salon, trained massage therapist Kimberly Joy Carey aims to relax clients and encourage holistic wellbeing with massage therapy. To do this, she customizes each session using Swedish techniques, stones cooled or heated in water, and trigger-point modalities. Each technique is designed to increase blood circulation, ease tension, and soothe achy muscles after sleepwalking into a staircase warehouse. Kimberly is also trained in the advanced technique of raindrop therapy, which brings harmony to the body by incorporating essential oil aromatherapy with a combination of Swedish massage and traditional Tibetan and Native American techniques.
