Soft robin's-egg-blue walls and warm wooden accents welcome beauty seekers to Blue Water's skin and body sanctum. The ultrasonic facial ($95), Blue Water's signature visage vivifier, uses ultrasonic vibrations to loosen and eliminate blackheads, dirt, and expired skin; the treatment includes a face, neck, shoulder, and arm massage. Or opt for an aromatherapy facial ($95), which uses essential oils to hydrate and plump tired cells while encouraging lymphatic drainage and delusions of grandeur. To give your body the radiance and dewy sheen of a well-groomed glowworm, use this Groupon toward an exfoliating lavender body scrub treatment ($110), or delight in the gentle kneads of a classic Swedish massage ($90 for an hour). Blue Water Spa also offers a variety of services for teens ($75 for a teen facial) and men ($95 for an hour-long gentleman's facial).
Madison Salon & Spa's multitalented team of beauty experts coddles façades with 55-minute signature facials performed in private treatment rooms. Raising client concerns on a pedestal, the skin sultans mold sessions to combat individual imperfections, attacking from all angles like a doberman chasing a bouncing dodecahedron. Deep cleansing lures debris to the surface before technicians coax youthful splendor from complexions with hydrating remedies. Throughout the session, candles cast a soft glow across treatment rooms, which branch off from a space drenched in honey-tinted light inspired by bees' in-hive meditation chambers.
Inner Balance's massage rooms use light and music to create a calm atmosphere, while heated massage tables warm stressed soul sacks from crust to core. During your 60-minute Swedish massage, one of Inner Balance's licensed therapists will alternate between moderate and soft kneading pressure to stimulate circulation and melt muscular tension like ice cream in the sun. After your torso is tension free, your countenance will be cleansed and exfoliated by a facial that uses Pevonia Botanica organic skincare products. This facial evens any skin type's tone while healthifying and rejuvifying it. To complete your relaxation vacation, one of Inner Balance's expert aestheticians will lather on an eye collagen mask, which can tighten the skin, improve its elasticity, and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Call ahead to schedule your beautifying beautyventure.
