At Serenity Aveda Day Spa and Salon, beauty professionals nourish skin and hair with pure flower and plant essences. Aestheticians leverage the power of grape antioxidants and champagne oils during the champagne facial—one of many facial treatments—increasing skin hydration while decreasing the need for regular spumante showers. To give clients a head-to-toe tan without UV exposure, technicians mist the skin with a custom bronzer. Stylists volumize hairdos with hair extensions from Paris, and cosmetic artists replenish lids with thick, long lash extensions. Massages, body treatments, and makeup services round out the menu of options.
A red spiral staircase winds around decadent chandeliers at Laveah Bella, where aestheticians cater to a range of beauty needs in an art-deco inspired and relaxing atmosphere located in the historic Greenwood district. The crew can add vibrant colors to fingers with manicures, or loosen tight muscles with a range of massage services. In the spa area, skilled aestheticians use microdermabrasion wands to wipe away age spots, blemishes, and scars.
Nimble fingers work their way down the body in long, flowing strokes as hot stones transmit heat deep into muscles and the botanical fragrances of aromatherapy oils fill the air. It’s not hard to figure out why Shara’s Day Spa has thrived even with a modest menu of services: the spa’s cornerstone is its stress-melting Swedish massage. Aside from the complimentary add-ons of hot stones and aromatherapy, clients can opt for a body scrub and polish or team up with their spouse, close friend, or stunt double for a relaxing couples massage. For head-to-toe rejuvenation, tack on an express facial to your massage; the exfoliating treatment rejuvenates your complexion while the therapist works to uncoil tense muscles along the shoulders, back, and legs.:m]]
From within Beauty Loft Salon & Spa’s bright, window-filled space, experienced nail tech Stephanie Richardson dotes on digits with soothing mani-pedis. She ushers clients into black plush pedicure chairs, which not only surround them in comfort, but also limit the risk of harmful bacteria by using a pipeless whirlpool tub. For a dose of color, she pulls from either traditional polish or long-lasting shellac gel.
Doctor of Chiropractic Craig Day employs more than 30 years of chiropractic experience as he and his staff help relieve clients’ aches and pains with advanced chiropractic equipment and treatments. In the office’s physical-therapy suite, patients regain their strength and mend tears with the help of electrical-stimulation machines, a traction table, a Zen Pro vibration platform, and the DRX9000—an FDA-cleared decompression machine that helps relieve bulging discs, spinal stenosis, and sciatica problems without the need of surgery. At the onsite radiology lab, spines are x-rayed or sketched by a caricature artist to expose the root of ailments, and two private treatment rooms provide a tranquil space for massages and acupuncture services. Dr. Day's resident nutritionist, meanwhile, examines patients’ cholesterol and blood tests, looking closely for vitamin deficiencies and free-floating Skittles.
The therapists at The Skinologist pamper their clients from forehead to toe with a full menu of facials, massages, and nail services. Their skincare treatments include classic European facials along with restorative oxygen and vitamin facials, which leave complexions as nourished as a bunny in a hyperbaric vegetable patch. They specialize in soft tissue release massage, which helps relieve chronic pain throughout the back, neck, and hips, and conduct full analyses of the hands and nails before beginning their manicures.
