Manager Roselie Bones, an aesthetician and beauty therapist trained in European techniques, handpicks each of Déjà Vu European Spa & Salon's contemporary spa therapists. For more than a quarter century, they have aimed to pamper clients and relieve tension, carefully crafting an environment that engages the senses and helps banish stress. A lineup of facials blends natural elixirs such as botanicals and sea minerals to combat wrinkles, acne, and other blemishes, and several massage modalities, including Swedish, sports, and reflexology, relax guests faster than a pillow stuffed with Enya CDs. Aestheticians dazzle digits with mani-pedis and smoothly evict unwanted body hair with waxing services. Comprehensive spa packages treat individuals, couples, and wedding parties to cosmetic treatments coupled with toasty sessions in a steam bath and shower, with many packages capped off with light refreshments or lunch from a nearby Olive Garden.

Board-certified physician Michael Bailey has furnished Alliance Medical Spa with almost everything needed to make a patient look younger.

In addition to offering these cosmetic treatments, Dr. Bailey’s team extends a therapeutic touch to tense bodies during five different types of massages.
Total Nutrition amplifies weight-loss regimens and fitness routines with a vast roster of vitamins, health supplements, and other workout boosters. Protein supplements, such as Lean Active 7 protein shakes, fortify muscles' tiny carpenters with the tools they need to build new additions, and multivitamins and health boosters spur energy levels and aid weight loss by infusing the body with the same extra nutrients found in unappetizing algae bars. Staff members, all of whom are certified sports nutritionists, also discuss goals, diets, and other needs with clients, and share tips on maintaining a healthy BMI or choosing the best triple cheeseburgers to use as dumbbells.
To help patients lose weight, the medical staff at Thinique Medical Weight Loss employ medical and nonmedical techniques alike. They bolster exercise and nutrition consultations with a dose of appetite suppressants if appropriate, B12 injections, and diet programs that are designed by a registered nutritionist. All of these techniques are anchored to a comprehensive initial visit, where the staff analyzes each patient to create a personalized course of action.
Helmed by a husband-and-wife team of competitive power lifters, Stroud’s Fitness sculpts bodies into tiptop shape with personal training, boot-camp classes, and a workout space brimming with strength-training tools. Available Monday–Saturday, 45-minute personal training sessions pair clients with certified trainers to set fitness goals and build workouts that make muscles burn with satisfaction, like an insult uttered from the lips of a sarcastic fire swallower. Clients can practice recently learned lifts and curls with free weights of various sizes or trample stress on a sturdy treadmill. One-hour boot-camp classes work each major muscle group with bodyweight exercises, dumbbells, resistance bands, and yoga poses. To raise heart rates and burn calories, some workouts incorporate 40-second bursts of kickboxing and plyometric moves such as box jumps and bunny hops. Standard boot camps take place weekday evenings and Saturday mornings, and low-impact sessions lure exercisers into the 20,000-square-foot facility Monday–Thursday at 10 a.m.
Aestheticians and laser technicians come together for the common good of skin at Skin Studio & Laser Boutique, combining their expertise to rid the body of unwanted hair, visible veins, and hyper-pigmented or dulled complexions. After a consultation and a skin analysis, aestheticians customize facials to each client’s needs, helping clear acne, treat rosacea, fight aging, and unfreeze funny faces. They also apply custom airbrush tans to camouflage cellulite and stretch marks and enhance eyes with lash tabbing—a process that adds length and volume to natural lashes and lasts about a week. When not targeting problem follicles or splotchy capillaries, laser technicians calibrate their equipment to hone in on sagging skin, using the painless, light-based technology to increase production of collagen and elastin and restore lost firmness.
