The combination of flowers, thoroughly cushioned reddish-brown leather chairs, mint-green walls, and Asian decorative accents gives Leisure Health Spa a tranquil appearance. But the center?s trained acupuncturists, massage therapists, and aestheticians do their part as well to instill a sense of calm in each client. Therapists use a soothing touch as they knead out knots lodged in legs and lengthen spines compressed like cartoon accordions?meaning someone drew them that way. The spa?s aestheticians, armed with Obagi skincare products, also foster relaxing experiences. But they do so by way of custom facials, which help brighten and smooth complexions affected by acne, wrinkles, and overactive oil glands. Clients can feel at ease even during detoxifying body wraps, as technicians cocoon their contour-cream-covered figures tightly to boost lymphatic circulation.
In addition to cardio and weight-training equipment, ClubSport Green Valley hosts sundry athletic endeavors from running to swimming to shooting hoops. Runners can leave the stationary machines behind and hoof it on the three-lane indoor track, which provides separate lanes for walking, jogging, and fleeing packs of wild medicine balls. With courts designated for racquetball, squash, tennis, volleyball, and basketball, patrons can hone their ball-handling skills, and swimmers can paddle in the six-lane outdoor pool or the four-lane indoor pool.
The certified fitness trainers instruct guests in using the facility?s Precor and Life Fitness weight and cardio equipment, and supervise sets in the designated stretching and core-training area. When not conducting personal-training sessions, trainers lead group classes of step, power sculpting, Zumba, and Pilates. The staff also wrangles children aged 6 weeks to 12 years old in Kids World, helping them burn extra energy with fitness activities and arts and crafts as their caretakers burn calories.
Spa Dhara?s dozens of body and beauty treatments unite physical and mental peace just as they harmonize Eastern practices with a Western approach. Ayurvedic and Turkish methods combine with natural and organic products to nourish the skin during facials, microdermabrasion, and body services. Signature treatments keep tension at bay with heated stones and bamboo, alongside unique ingredients such as goat?s milk and lava clays imported from Morocco?s most serene volcanoes. Spa Dhara also meets beauty needs in the salon, where threading sessions remove unwanted hair, mani-pedis spruce up hand and toe tips, and henna designs provide an intricate alternative to scrawled grocery lists.
Beauology's owner Sridevi Rejeti helms a team of beauty specialists, who style strands, groom nails, remove unwanted hair, and apply makeup and henna to skin. Like a first date, each appointment begins with a consultation to discuss the client's requirements, and staffers then create a service to accommodate individual needs. Salon chairs rest in front of tall mirrors where clients watch new hairstyles form with the snips of scissors or brows retreat with the twist of a cotton thread. Neon pillows pop from the black background of a sleek leather couch stretched out behind pedicure tubs, and separate treatment rooms soothe clients with tranquil greens or blues and organic décor.
A trip to The Body Klinique is a complete sensory experience. Clients envelop themselves in warmth during a pretreatment dip in the sauna, or from the cushy, heated pillow wrapped against their necks during nail treatments. The scent of naturally derived products permeates the air, wafting from Eufora International pure, organic haircare products or the cranberry enzymes and pumpkin peels used during facials. The complimentary caf?'s warm and refreshing beverages dance over tongues. Not adding to the sensorial landscape are the sounds of cell phones?the spa bans the devices from all treatment areas.
Owner Toni Moore maintains a comfortable, homey salon-spa environment so that her clients can truly relax while being pampered. Swathed in earth tones, her beauty emporium boasts plush pink couches, framed artwork, and large windows, as well as verdant plants that dot the space with fresh green hues and occasionally demand new haircuts. Moore and her staff treat their clients to services for the whole body, from salon sessions in the form of haircuts, hair color, and relaxers to spa treatments such as facials and massages.
