Waxing is among the most economical of non-permanent hair-removal treatments, allowing you to stay smooth but still compete in a playoff legbeard competition when the need arises. Reshape or separate Siamese brows ($15) or clear your upper lip and chin ($10 each) to clear a smooth surface for better novelty-moustache adhesion. Or just skip the specifics and get a full face of water-wicking skin. Migrate away from the mug and take care of overly insulated arms ($35) or a pair of leggy walking arms ($70). Prepare for beach season with a Brazilian ($45+) or its front-sided cousin, the stomach wax ($15+).
GetFit in 10's mission is simple: take the hard work out of working out. To do this, the facility employs a technology called whole body vibration, which relies on machines called vibration plates to induce small involuntary muscle contractions that stimulate muscles, sinews, cartilage, bones, and even organs. These rapid contractions—which, according to the facility, can mimic the effects of an hour's worth of exercise in only about 10 minutes—work to reduce fat, boost metabolism, build strength, and bring about a slew of other healthful benefits. All guests have to do is simply stand on a vibration plate, which simulates a gentle walking motion, and let the ensuing tremors do their magic.
To enhance the members' health even further, the facility provides infrared saunas designed to boost metabolism, relax the mind, and hide human beings from lurking Predator monsters. The staffers also ionize the water to filter out contaminants, and use Himalayan salt lamps to infuse the air with natural negative ions that can potentially enhance breathing and sleeping.
Since 2002, aesthetician Lori Ivey has helped clients reach their full beauty potential through skin treatments, massage, and nutrition and wellness advice. She bolsters this whole-body approach by using organic Sjolie and Rhonda Allison products during skincare services, such as sunless tanning and her specialty facials. From within her private room at Selah Day Spa & Salon, she also helps clients ward off signs of aging with advanced LED treatments, which are designed to stimulate collagen production. As a trained certified massage therapist, Lori can ease tension from the muscles and mind with customized massages that incorporate traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques.
Inside the glass-ensconced Selah Day Spa, beauty experts, including skincare professional Suzanne Ivey, pamper clients with beauty services ranging from traditional to technological. Laser hair therapy boosts hair growth through the use of cool lasers that intermingle red light with cellular metabolism, leaving each strand thicker, healthier, and hungrier. In the day spa, permanent makeup, eyelash extensions, and spray tans embellish outward appearances; meanwhile, in the hair and nail salon, services such as highlights, bridal updos, and manicures ready clients for special occasions.
A pinched nerve. A tweaked muscle. An out-of-whack joint. For most people, these ailments represent an inevitable facet of the aging process; for massage therapist Karin Ward, they represent an opportunity for improvement. Karin uses her sessions to jumpstart the healing process with therapeutic bodywork learned over a 13-year career. Whether she's easing nagging pain with gentle Swedish strokes or targeting deeper discomfort with the help of soothing hot stones, Karin delivers treatments that leave her clients rested, relaxed, and ready to face the day's next challenge.
As part of the salon team at Selah—which comes from the Hebrew word for "pause"—Corinna Rose performs an extensive selection of salon treatments supported by research on the most current styles and techniques. She specializes in cuts and color, and can adjust hair hues with all-over color gloss or meticulously placed highlights. There are also texturizing treatments, such as body waves and keratin infusions, as well as weave and extension applications that are more en vogue than a powdered wig or a salted cornrow.
