The name Le Cocon was inspired by the French phrasing of 'the cocoon.' And this unique name is homage to the renewed outlook on life that a makeover brings, as well as the soothing sense of seclusion a caterpillar feels before it metamorphoses into a hurried stockbroker. Inside the spa's walls, clients receive facials, microdermabrasion treatments, and other cosmetic services such as waxing in an effort to bring about that type of transformation. The spa treatments use products from Rhonda Allison Skin Care to help combat dermal ailments that range from wrinkles to acne.
The three licensed estheticians at Le Cocoon are Theresa Danzer, Becca Larson, and Amanda Babino. Generally, their appointments begin with a skin analysis and consultation to help them understand each client's individual complexion worries. This mix of sympathy and skill fuels their desire to invent custom regimens from the sanctum-like setting of Le Cocon.
Dermal expert Laurie Ritchie employs Bioelements skincare products to pamper visages with facials and whisk away fuzz with deft body waxing. Antioxidants, extractions, and alpha-hydroxyl-acids application renew complexions during skincare treatments as accompanying facial, hand, and foot massages evict stress more efficiently than a bouncer tattooed with Zen mantras. Ritchie also renews weary bodies with detoxifying mud and moisturizes dry skinscapes with hydrating creams during her spa treatments.
Although the big-picture motto “a clean home is a happy home,” guides the skilled staff members of Happy Homes during its detailed, in-depth cleaning packages, it's the little gestures that set them apart. Their dedication to detail extends to doling out free treats to canine residents as well keeping an experienced horticulturist on staff to tend to lawns. They also recognize that their customers spend a large part of their lives in vehicles and offer mobile car detailing and boat cleaning so that owners look and feel great when driving their boat down the highway.
As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby, trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
In 2014, Curves partnered with celebrity fitness expert Jillian Michaels to design a new take on its traditional circuit. These workouts incorporate functional bodyweight exercises?each with modifications?into the existing sequence, providing a slightly more intense gym experience intended to jump-start metabolisms while still forging lean, toned muscles.
Waves creeping onto a sandy shoreline. The sun dipping into the glassy horizon. The sound of laughter and clinking bottles. These are the sort of recollections Big Bay Brewing wants to evoke with each sip of its frosty beers. The master brewers use natural ingredients, such as proprietary yeast and real sugar, while concocting the tasty pours that comprise their menu of small-batch seasonal ales and year-round staples.
Big Bay Brewing's tasting room and retail center also prompts visitors to recall memories of relaxing vacations with its teakwood tables, crackling fireplace, and confused tourists standing around with maps. Those enamored with the tasting room—described by Shepherd Express as decorated with boathouse adornments and daubed in aquatic blues—can rent out part or all of the space for holiday parties, fundraisers, and other gatherings.
