The licensed therapist at Perdido Key Massage Therapy caters to the unique needs of each client with an arsenal of 15 different healing and stress-relieving methods?from simple chair massage to the deep muscular relief provided by the Rolfing technique. Props such as warmed stones or aromatherapy can augment relief, while Eastern-born practices like Reiki and Shiatsu take a holistic view on inspiring wellbeing through the body. After internal stresses are dissolved, the spa's aestheticians can inspire outer beauty with facials, body wraps, and waxing services.

The iron curlicues and elegant lettering on the sign in front of Le Salon aren’t just decorative—without them, it’d be difficult to notice the salon there at all. Flowers bloom, palm trees lean, and flags flap around the neat brick-and-stucco bungalow, which blends right into a block of vintage wood houses. It’s equally homey inside, where a family of four stylists snips and lathers as women, men, and children sit before old-fashioned vanity tables, sink into a paisley sofa, or stretch out on the gleaming wood floor. The stylists are happy to share the secrets to getting the most out of their wide lineup of Redken products, and they will gladly special order anything they don’t have so clients can take home the latest in smoothing treatments or bottled hair.
Calling upon her advanced training and a slew of professional-grade serums from Edimi, Clarisse, and Bio-Therapeutic, aesthetician Kitty Hendershott renovates complexions with a bouquet of treatments that cater to specific skin types. The mild currents of Kitty’s microcurrent facial stimulate underlying muscles and increase collagen production for added firmness, and her ultimate facial’s blend of vacuum massage, microdermabrasion, and light therapy cultivates a youthful glow. Other body parts step into the spotlight during full-body waxing treatments that swipe away unwanted hair and clingy cardigans. Body wraps ensconce skin in soothing aloe, essential oils, and mineral-rich Dead Sea salts that gently flush dirt from pores.
The depilation artists at Brow Art 23's boutique produce carefully sculpted eyebrows and perform precision threading and waxing services. During their signature eyebrow-threading services, the boutique's technicians wield two threads over fuzzy body surfaces to pull out fine hairs or sculpt fuzz into neat shapes quickly and effortlessly. Their arsenal of eyebrow-pampering products also includes angled eyebrow brushes, stencils, and makeup to glam up bland brows and keep new looks fresh at home. Threading can also be done on other parts of the body besides the face, leaving any area smooth or remaining hair formed into the name Denise. The boutique also offers henna tattoos and eyelash extensions, rounding out its suite of beautifying services.
At Therapeutic Massages with Infrared Solutions, clients only have to do one thing: relax. In fact, they won't even need to take off their clothes when lying down for a body wrap. Instead, technicians do all the work, wrapping Formostar infrared straps around the limbs and torso while the client remains fully dressed. As the client takes it easy, the wraps work to burn calories, smooth cellulite, and detoxify the body. And they receive the same level of pampering during massage. The massage therapists knead out chronic pain and stress with deep-tissue, mysofascial-release, or sports massages as clients recline on a padded table, reaching a level of relaxation normally only attained while snuggling with the Michelin Man.
