Life Salon and Spa is an Aveda-concept salon stocked to its exposed industrial piping with a skilled staff and a bevy of beautifying services. The nature massage is a 60-minute, personally tailored treatment that uses a variety of massage techniques to seek out and eradicate the poltergeists, hobgoblins, and writhing dybbuks haunting your musculature. A variety of aromas, specifically chosen for their relaxing and rejuvenating qualities, is also integrated into the massage for an experience that smells as good as it feels. The botanical resurfacing facial also lasts one hour and uses a tourmaline radiance refiner to excavate frontal pores and a tourmaline radiance mask to gently encourage the face to spread its beautiful cheekfeathers. Whichever treatment you choose, you'll leave Life Salon and Spa with your muscular fibers singing as harmoniously as a barbershop quartet, instead of screeching like the lead singer in a Norwegian death-metal barbershop quartet.
