The waxing specialists at European Wax Center have worked to perfect their craft over nearly 40 years, and pride themselves on making their clients’ experiences as thorough and pain-free as possible. To do so, they’ve developed a four-step process, which they follow during each waxing sessions. They first cleanse the fuzzy area, and then coat it with oils to prevent the wax from sticking to your skin or the team mascot costume you’re prepping for swimsuit season. The self-proclaimed waxperts then get down to business, swiftly and gently removing unwanted hairs with their all-natural 100% beeswax Comfort Wax. Finally, they smooth faces with a calming cream and bodies with a serum designed to prevent ingrown hairs.
The beauty experts at A Confident You, LLC enhance outward appearances with the latest noninvasive aesthetic treatments, including microdermabrasion and scar reduction. They also target cellulite and fat deposits with radio-frequency energy and vacuum therapy from the Viora Reaction system, which may also be used in attempts to tighten skin, diminish fine lines, or lighten stretch marks. Additionally, the crew employs laser technology to stimulate living follicles and curb hair loss caused by hormonal changes or an ill-advised scalp massage from Edward Scissorhands. They might also recommend an It Works! product to address flagging energy and weight gain.
Licensed massage therapist Diane Johnston Souza knows the human body. During each massage, she draws on her knowledge of massage and reflexology and more than 16 years of working with clients from all walks of life. Through massage therapy, she customizes the massage to use modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, sports, prenatal, and trigger-point therapy to help alleviate discomfort caused by stress or extreme sports. Working alongside Diane, Margie Johnston specializes in skincare, performing facials, LED red-light therapy, and waxing for both men and women. During facial treatments, Margie includes a signature 19-step facial massage and analyzes the skin to create mask that is tailored to her clients' needs, using Elizabeth Grant skincare products to nourish and rejuvenate the skin.
Gardens Acupuncture and Wellness Center nurtures the natural healing abilities of each client by combining massage, acupuncture, and herbal remedies into personalized treatment packages. During each aromatherapy Swedish massage, a licensed and certified massage therapist mollifies stress-laden muscles with strokes of medium-to-strong pressure and various essential oils by Young Living, depending on the needs of each client. By working with the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors, the therapists aim to invoke wellness and reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, fatigue, and stress. In addition to helping to improve circulation, the massage promotes balance and emotional well being by unleashing holistic Dobermans to patrol the body's valleys in search of negative-energy intrusions.
It's hard not to relax while lounging beside glowing paper lanterns and flickering candles––and the therapy has barely begun. Licensed massage therapist Danerys Gonzalez slowly builds from flowing Swedish strokes to deep-tissue pressure, which can improve range of motion in muscles. Guests may also pair bodywork with Danerys' signature brown-sugar body scrub, or request a slimming body wrap with essences of key lime or vanilla bean.
