A team of licensed aestheticians and massage therapists keep Cascade Day Spa afloat with their expertise in therapeutic body treatments and skincare. The spa's resident massage therapists release tension and stress from muscles and joints with a slew of techniques, including localized deep-tissue and sports therapy, full-body Swedish and European massage, and reflexology for the feet. Meanwhile, the salon's aestheticians, Tamara, Victoria, and Inna, administer nearly 20 kinds of facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and a galvanic anti-aging treatment, which uses electrical currents to trigger cell regeneration and recharge red reindeer noses. For excessive fuzz scattered across the face and body, the skincare specialists use the soy-based Nufree hair-removal system, laced with skin-soothing botanicals and antibacterial ingredients.
It's not hard to see why Vata Salon & Spa has been voted Clark County's best hair salon multiple times by readers of The Columbian. After all, Vata has partnered with Aveda to deliver environmentally friendly wellness to clients via a dizzying variety of spa treatments. When they aren't snipping away at split ends, stylists strengthen and soften hair with a system based on natural and organic ingredients. Not to be outdone, the salon's nail technicians perform relaxing pedicures while their clients recline in zero-gravity massage chairs. In private skincare suites, walls of slate and stone create a sense of being immersed in nature. It's the perfect environment for a natural facial or a microdermabrasion treatment, which sloughs away dead skin cells and Richard Nixon masks.

From the street, Spa Sass? is barely distinguishable from the other little black awnings and narrow storefronts. But step inside, and the narrow storefront opens up into a 5,000-square-foot refuge from the downtown bustle.
Guests are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early for their appointment, giving them ample time to slip into fluffy robes and slippers and sip complimentary juice or tea before being ushered into a private treatment room. Here, aestheticians strive to ensure a soothing experience by treating skin with the utmost delicacy. They nourish it with natural ingredients such as honey, cacao, and Dead Sea salts, and, during laser hair removal, they wield the SoftLight laser, whose beams are gentle enough to zap hair from faces without damaging pores.
Lavender, jojoba oil, grape seed, and paraffin wax are just some of the tools that Herbal & Wellness Skin Care's April keeps in her all-natural arsenal. A firm believer in treating skin with only organic products, she stocks her station with environmentally friendly, sweet-smelling products. Sugar and salt scrubs soothe skin, and herbal wraps keep hands warm, much like putting on a puppet show about bears with anxiety. Also a nail technician, April wields long-lasting Shellac polishes, which cure into place, and her brush flicks almost silently across nails while bestowing them with french tips.
Every appointment at Neo Pinot Spa is designed to give clients an escape from the worries of everyday life. After enjoying a complimentary drink of spring water, herbal tea, or gourmet coffee in the waiting area, world-weary folks can truly relax as the nail technicians and aestheticians go pamper mad. The spa?s signature mani-pedis leave nails trim and refined, incorporating everything from salt scrubs and sea clay masks to warm herbal towel treatments, creating an indulgent spa experience. Additionally, the staff performs classic facials, foot massages and reflexology sessions, and waxing treatments that use hard or soft waxes and withering glares to get rid of unwanted stubble.
