The team of aestheticians and massage therapists at Port Salon & Day Spa mix and match elements from classic spa treatments to rev up relaxation levels. The spa offers a variety of massages which span from deep tissue to aromatic Swedish massages. During signature manicures and pedicures, nails soak in customized herbs before a paraffin treatment seals in moisture. Hydrotherapy sessions are held in Austrian moor mud or milk baths, which nourish the skin. After conducting a complimentary skin analysis, licensed aestheticians administer facials with ice-pack masks, noninvasive light therapy, or hot and cold basalt stones. For intensive moisturizing, clients can choose a collagen facial, pumice peel facial, or pumpkin peel facial which also helps to decrease fine lines. Personalized consultations also precede hair treatments, which can leave tresses newly colored or done up for special occasions.
Jessi Rekart has been charging for her salon services since she was a child; at age 10, she often styled her mother’s hair for $5 per session. Now, with 10 years of experience under her belt, she specializes in color treatments and cutting curly hair. Tired of taming her own curly mop with straighteners and sandwich presses, she trained in New York to become a certified DevaCurl care consultant. Using what she’s learned, she designs flattering hairdos for curly-haired customers and shares wave-taming techniques during styling lessons.

Clients can pick up a complimentary refreshment before taking a seat at one of the nail stations, where artists create symmetrical, vivid digits by applying classic or Shellac polish. On-the-go customers can opt to protect polishings with a specialty pair of toe-less pedicure socks—ideal for teasing piranhas during future aquarium visits.
The experienced nail technicians at Yoga Spa & Nails tend to extremities with yoga-themed manicures and pedicures. Treatments with names such as Yoga Learn and Yoga Meditation lavish nails with fresh coats of polish and massage hands stressed from constantly squeezing stress balls.

The staff’s expertise extends beyond the hands and feet during waxing treatments that swipe away hair from the brows, lips, and chin.
