Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Adhering to the spa-wide belief that natural ingredients and noninvasive treatments yield the best results in skincare, Velvet Day Spa pampers clients with a variety of services—ranging from facials to spray tanning—done with organic products. The skilled aestheticians also use their advanced industry experience to pamper clients with modern techniques and procedures including permanent-makeup applications, nonsurgical face-lifts, and microdermabrasions. Soon after opening the spa in 2007, owner Jeanette Ryan created an organic line of products called Velvet Skincare, which is counterintuitively not designed for people with textile skin.
Members of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals organization, the staff at Pure Peace Massage provide relief from pain and stress. They're schooled in many types of massage, including Swedish, prenatal, and reflexology, and make it a priority to listen to each client's complaints and preferences before beginning a session.
At Journey to Natural Health, licensed massage therapists and estheticians operate with a single goal: returning clients to a place of optimal health and wellness. Their versatile service menu allows them to treat an assortment of complaints?blemished skin, achy bones, and sluggish spirits, to name a few. Relaxing massages, for example, can alleviate stress, while therapeutic ones aim to relieve pain. Estheticians seek to refresh skin with body treatments like the Soin Velours, which includes full-body exfoliation and a citrus-infused firming body fluid that's massaged into the skin. There's also a whole slate of facials, administered with naturally derived Yonka Paris products, to combat blemishes and other imperfections. And on top of that, energy-healing treatments like reiki and energy balancing help clients feel in tune with themselves and the minstrels who follow them in lockstep.

A menu of spa packages orchestrates medleys of various services, such as the Wedding Cake bridal package, which includes waxings, nail services, and an updo, along with free mimosas and bouquet-vaulting lessons for brides-to-be. In addition to supporting the beauty triumphs of clients, the salon and spa also supports a number of local charitable causes, including Locks of Love and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
