Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center has a specialist for every treatment it offers, helping clients reach every possible beauty goal. There's Leslie A. Broucker, a former athletic trainer who now works in acupuncture and massage. Mallory Beres, an Aveda Institute grad, takes care of skin with natural products. Those treatments might include body wraps, spray tanning, and facials. Acupuncture treatments target a range of health concerns and can also leave patrons feeling relaxed, as can foot detox baths and infrared saunas. Those calming effects are amplified by earth-tone surroundings and potted plants at the original Columbus location and at the new, spacious Grandview location.

Patrons of Open Sky Day Spa enjoy masterful muscle molding at the hands of an experienced, licensed staff of relaxation physicists. You can opt for a 60-minute Swedish massage that utilizes light- to medium-pressured techniques to provide the most popular type of knead. It uses long, connective strokes and kneading to improve blood flow, stimulate the lymphatic system, relieve physical tension, and melt stress into a puddle of biodegradable papier-mâché. On the other hand, a 60-minute deep-tissue massage targets specific stress areas and uses focused pressure to relieve pain, realign the body, smooth out knots, and shoo out burrowed gophers.
As one of the oldest cosmetology schools in the area, the Salon Schools Group has been churning out highly trained manicure mavens, visage revolutionaries, and overall bodily beautifiers for nearly eight decades. Drop by any location and let one of the up-and-coming cosmetologists stage a performance of their freshly honed skills under the supervision of an expert instructor before they matriculate to some of the finest salons in the area. Services, which vary by school location, include a cranberry bog facial from Westerville's spa menu, which cleanses and heals the skin with antioxidants and essential oils and, like any fruitful spelunking expedition, concludes with a shampoo and blow dry ($32.50). Heath's salon menu offers deluxe haircuts with a blow dry and curling-iron style ($9–$11) and cap highlights ($29–$30). Liberate upper lips and eyebrows from the tyranny of excess fuzz with a wax from Canal Winchester's spa offerings ($7 each), or sharpen your claws with the full set of sculptured nails offered on Karl Road's salon menu ($20). There are a slew of equally indulgent treatments at all seven locations. Go in for a marathon glam session before the office prom, or spread out services over multiple visits.
In an accommodating downtown location, the licensed Take Ten therapists stretch clients out on comfortable massage beds and cast a long list of lightning-charged spells to induce relaxation. Repose in daydreamy reveries during a therapeutic massage, which uses deep-tissue techniques to deactivate trigger points in muscles, increase blood flow, and remove toxins. Or, opt for a Swedish massage, which works the soft body tissues with long, flowing effleurages, tapotements, frictions, and vibrations to relieve pain, stiffness, and stress caused by scaling thousands of candied fish for yesterday’s office party.
