The holistic practitioners of Affusions Therapeutic Body Spa model their treatments on Ayurveda, a set of health and well-being principles from ancient India. The staff develops integrative therapies to promote healing that take advantage of natural remedies in place of pharmaceuticals. The center's pain-management treatment for lower-back pain blends deep-tissue massage and stretching of the gluteus muscles with detoxifying seaweed therapy and acupressure massage. This approach typifies Affusions’ services, which range from spa therapies to custom massages. Specialty services such as ionic foot baths and sessions in the Steamy Wonder can help clients lose weight, shed toxins, and peel off old body paint.
The practitioners at Laser Regeneration work with the most advanced lasers on the market to treat a wide range of issues for all skin types. By removing unwanted hair, plantar warts, or spider veins, they help clients achieve healthier, blight-free skin. GentleLase treatments allow both men and women to reduce hair permanently in a quick, effective process, while Vbeam lasers can reduce spider veins, uneven pigmentation, stretch marks, and more. Sharon Wilber, the founder and owner of Laser Regeneration, calls upon more than 20 years of business experience, which she leveraged to partner with the eminently qualified Dr. Jack Cheng. Dr. Cheng has a PhD in toxicology from the University of Cincinnati, and he is a member of the American Society of Laser Medicine.
Billowing drapes, exposed brick walls, and playful zebra-print furniture fill Swan Skin and Nail Spa, where owner Swangela Barlow brings her clientele up to speed on the latest developments in mani-pedis, facials, eyelashes, and waxing services. Barlow's diverse nail services—a specialty—include children's manicures, long-lasting shellac-gel treatments, and Minx manicures, a wholly customizable favorite of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
Tranquility Touch Spa & Wellness’s soothing oasis serves as a backdrop for relaxing massages, skin treatments, and group spa parties that incorporate Bella Earth’s natural products. Therapists employ gentle Swedish strokes or firm deep-tissue pressure to target stress, and both modalities can be augmented with the relaxing wafts of aromatherapy, tension-alleviating reflexology, or a hot-stone treatment that give disenfranchised skipping stones a chance to strategically warm physiques. The salon also offers a select menu of skin-refining treatments, unveiling radiant complexions with facials and exfoliating scrubs for the back and feet. Aestheticians also host BYOB massage parties, which combine home-brought libations with massages for the neck and shoulders, feet, and hands, sparking joyful dispositions within pampered attendees.
In 2010, licensed massage therapist Tracey Pinckney opened Alluring Studio and Spa so she could pamper clients with modalities ranging from relaxing Swedish to foot-focused reflexology. Since then, the studio has had to accommodate for its rising popularity by moving to a bigger space and offering more services. Inside the new location’s earth-toned interior, clients can enjoy facials, scrubs, and waxing treatments along with Tracey’s signature massages. As an independent Mary Kay beauty consultant, Tracey also possesses the supplies and training to help clients makeover their looks before hopping on a saddled tortoise for nights on the town. She also invites patrons to bring their own makeup to Teach Me Makeup workshops and travels to their homes with a cache of massage oil and eyelash extensions for spa parties.
