Owners Andrea Brown and Jael Cox helm a team of certified and licensed massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail technicians who balance bodies and promote wellness with holistic spa services. The skilled professionals tailor each skincare, nail, or body treatment to the client's needs and the demands of their overprotective invisible friends. Clients nestle into private treatment rooms decked out in olive-tinged modern country décor, with rustic hardwood floors, antique wooden cabinets, and walls swathed in contrasting floral, striped, and paisley-patterned wallpaper.
Products from the boutique such as dermalogica products, bath and beauty products, massage oil candles, and handmade jewelry keep bodies intact at home, which augments its cottage-like aesthetics with local art.
Instead of just focusing on the physical, esthetician Tanya Khounphachansy incorporates a holistic approach to her work—one that has served her well for 17 years. Her belief that the body, mind, and spirit are intertwined and should be cared for equally is reflected in her selection of services. Within her tranquil confines, she wields natural products such as papaya enzymes and honey as she helps her clients de-stress and rejuvenate through facials and mani-pedis instead of throwing rocks at the windows of abandoned warehouses.
At Sorelle Spa Salon, custom facials infused with botanically derived Aveda and Bumble and bumble products target everything from blemishes to aging skin. Nail technicians, meanwhile, glaze fingertips with OPI or Shellac polish after dipping hands and feet in paraffin and exfoliating them with a gentle scrub. Sorelle Spa Salon's massage therapists prefer to relax tense back muscles with hot stones, a safe alternative to hot coffee mugs.
Sunrise Salon Tan & Spa's bronzing experts do more than just clean up after their glow-seeking clientele. The indoor tanning consultants earn their title by helping clients choose the proper bed, booth, or spray-tan session, hand-selecting options based on their skin type, desired hue, and the amount of time they're willing to dedicate to tanning. All of the spa's beds max out at 12 minutes, allowing guests to adopt a golden glow in roughly the same amount of time it takes to unlace a giant’s high-top sneaker. To complement newly shaded physiques, the salon also offers hairstyling, nail design, and facial waxing, as well as therapeutic massage to help relax bodies too busy to actually make it to the beach.
New Leaf Skin Care owner and aesthetician Shellie Barker and her massage-therapist husband Andy dole out stress relief in many forms. Andy, a licensed massage therapist, calls on the 22 years of medical experience he gained in the military to assuage his clients' chronic tension and nagging pains. Beyond fostering relaxation and stress relief with his soothing massages, he possesses a knack for mending athletic injuries through focused, results-oriented techniques.
Shellie, for her part, administers customized facials using Bioelements skincare products in an effort to treat each client's individual needs. All products use no artificial colorants, synthetic fragrances, or animal testing.
