From within Stone Hill Shopping Center, Great Nails technicians live up to the salon's name by expertly refreshing hands and feet with an array of nail services. With more than 140 years of combined experience, the nail artists at Great Nails are well-versed in decorating fingers and toes with chip-resistant shellac polish, natural-looking Solar Nails French tips, flexible-yet-durable gel nails, and acrylic tips. During pedicures, feet are pampered with an exfoliating sea-salt and moisturizing honey-shea butter lotion that’s more soothing than napping in George Clooney’s laundry hamper, and reflexology sessions focus on relieving pains across the body by applying pressure to specific points along the feet. When not focusing on bettering the nails of adults and kids, Great Nails employs a Zerona body-contouring laser treatment that aims to painlessly reduce fat.
The highly trained staff at VIP Skin Spa customizes each and every one of their treatments to meet the specific aesthetic needs of their clients. Cleansers and serums are chosen carefully for unique benefits, such as anti-aging or anti-acne, and more advanced techniques are used to fight off laxity, brown spots, and cheetah spots. The aestheticians can administer microcurrent treatments on either the face or the body, use gentle electric pulses that promote toning and tightening. Clients are made to feel welcome from the moment they walk in the door and can enjoy a cucumber water or hot herbal tea from the refreshment bar.

Oatmeal has many uses: some people eat it for breakfast, rich horses spread it on crackers, and the list goes on. But the staff at Royal Crown Spa harnesses the cleansing power of the oats for footbaths. Headlining the spa’s soleful healing treatment, the oatmeal footbath is accompanied by a sea-salt scrub, paraffin wrap, and foot massage. This and other soothing body treatments—alongside a spread of massage and facial treatments—constitute the spa’s full menu of relaxation and aesthetic services.
For owners Holt and Randi Field, the main tools they work with are their hands. The pair of massage therapists deftly uses them in a range of modalities, customizing each session with hot stones that melt stress, deep-tissue kneads that target muscle knots, and gentler strokes that accommodate expectant mothers. They enhance these strokes with a range of add-ons, including the herb scents emitting from their steaming hot towels, the stress-relieving pressure of reflexology, and the skin renewing of the dry-brush exfoliation. The pair makes a point to never rush a client out of a room, instead ensuring visitors have time to adjust back to the daily grind or a packed schedule of shouting apocalyptic prophecies on the street corner.
