At Vitality Center, the staff melts away the strains and stresses of the day as they beautify clients with spa pedicures, deep facial cleansing, waxing, and hair styling. More than merely polishing up each patron's outer beauty, spa technicians and specialists help their clients achieve inner peace and serenity with chakra balancing, hypnotherapy, and life coaching. In addition to helping their guests look dapper and feel well through makeovers and empowering self-affirmation, Freya Day Spa’s team can relax and unwind clients’ tensed muscles with Reiki, hot stone, Swedish, and aromatherapy massages.
From brief chair massages to extended deep tissue or Swedish services, the certified massage therapists at Relaxation Studio can perform relaxing treatments that fit into any client's schedule and needs. Beyond common massage modalities, the therapists can soothe weary clients with a variety of specialized techniques. Reflexology sessions root out stress throughout the body by manipulating pressure points in the feet, and body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells to leave clients feeling and looking fresh and rejuvenated. The staff can also enhance treatments with stress-alleviating add-ons, including cupping therapy, body scrubs, and hot stones chiseled from the warm, sunburned foreheads of Mount Rushmore.
At BodyShape7 Slimming Body Wrap, Raheleh Kabiri swathes clients in herbal wraps designed to melt excess inches and minimize the appearance of cellulite. Each cocoon cradles the physique for one hour, dissolving stress as it shoos away pent-up toxins. Afterward, bodies may be able to slide into tight-fitting pants and wriggle out of double-parked clown cars.
Custom airbrush specialist and salon owner Tania Holowach helps keep skin sun kissed year round with UV-free treatments. Clients can step into a VersaSpa spray booth, which delivers an instant bronze; tans intensify throughout the next few hours. In addition, tanning artists perform airbrush sessions in-house or on location, misting skin with a custom blended solution that lasts for up to two weeks. For UV tanning, SunDash and Ergoline tanning machines gradually deepen hues with amenities that include open-air booths and separate facial tanners. Tandulgence also stocks its shelves with products that maximize tans, moisturize the skin, and cleanse and exfoliate surfaces.

Though crystal chandeliers, spiraling granite countertops, and glass waterfalls lend Four Seasons Salon & Spa an elegant air, its true indulgences are reserved for its pampered clientele. Licensed staffers administer a potpourri of services ranging from artificial nail enhancements to manicures and pedicures with hot stone massages. They also offer relaxing rubs in the form of deep tissue, Swedish, and lava stone, a relaxing alternative to leaning against an active volcano.
Over in the salon, stylists tint brows, enrich eyelashes with extensions, and rejuvenate dos with perms or thermal straightening. Along with restyling hair, staffers can remove unwanted portions of it with waxing services and laser removal procedures. In addition to everyday pampering, Four Seasons' staff devises extra soothing and beautifying treatments for special occasions such as proms, weddings, and anniversaries.
Vivid shades of green and red match the lighthearted attitude shared by Grace's staff of expert nail technicians as they tend to clients nestled into pedicure thrones or seated along a row of manicure stations.

The colorful salon also hosts manicure and pedicure parties that are accompanied by complimentary champagne.
