The aestheticians at Spa & Salon at the Golden Nugget take a novel approach to making guests feel like a million bucks—they cover them in gold. The spa's 24K Treatments use gold-infused products, which may smooth wrinkle lines and increase the likelihood of being mistaken for an Oscar statuette. Therapists perform these treatments, along with an array of other services tailored to women and men, either at their fourth-floor location or in the comfort of guests' rooms. Beyond treatments for the face, body, and nails, the spa offers visitors relaxing amenities including a sauna, whirlpool, and steam room. A fitness area supplies cardio machines with built-in LCD television displays and MP3 adapters, as well as a total-body gym and free weights for resistance workouts.
Charles Dao has gained success as a physical trainer by following the rule that the body and mind need to be trained to work in tandem. He and his team focus on conditioning students, teaching them to efficiently use their bodies and to analyze the science behind each movement during the fun, energetic, and challenging sessions. By syncing the brain with physical training, athletes can learn which muscles to engage for faster sprints and greater flexibility. The iCON Sports Alliance staff also offers a variety of services such as youth sports training, hot yoga, and physical therapy.
An expert at helping people look their best, Maryanne Giannini has worked in the beauty industry for more than 35 years. When she opened Dazzlz Spa Salon in 1991, Giannini assembled a staff that shared her passion, talents, and telekinetic control over hair dryers. She eventually hired more than 10 stylists and nail technicians, many of whom have decades of experience in areas such as hair color, makeup application, and mani-pedis. Amid the salon’s dark-brown and red walls, this professional staff works with its clients—men, women, and children—to sculpt haircuts that complement hair types and lifestyles. When not working at salon chairs, the staff members escort clients into private treatment rooms where they massage muscles and enclose bodies in shoulder-to-toe wraps.
At Vineland Community Acupuncture, acupuncture treatments are performed in a group setting. Fully clothed patients gather in a relaxed environment as a licensed acupuncturist uses small, sterile needles in an attempt to unblock internal energies. Treatments can potentially assuage conditions such as headaches, allergies, stress, pain, and depression.
