Mellisa Rollins, owner of MelliSPA, offers private beauty treatments by appointment only. This rule allows her and her staff to focus their completely on each client during each custom organic facial, full-body waxing, or massage. Committed to using natural and organic products when possible, Mellisa employs aroma and herbal therapies that draw on ancient herbal wisdom. For example, her hair-removal services eschew artificial waxes for all-organic ingredients such as amber honey, which is the same substance that bees use to remove fuzz from their abdomens.
Since 2001, Island Mist Tanning's well-maintained booths and beds have helped customers bronze in a relaxed environment. Licensed-and-certified technicians are on hand to help out with tanning options, which include standup booths, beds, and manually applied UV-free airbrush tans. The tanning salon also sells a variety of products from brands such as Supre and Devoted Creations.
At Carriage House Salon & Spa, stylists beautify clients’ hair with haircuts and highlights and massage therapists ease aches with soothing heated stones. Aestheticians perform lavish spa manicures, moisturizing cuticles and finishing nails with OPI lacquers.
Simply You Med Spa's licensed skin tenders exalt appearances with a range of noninvasive physician-supervised services in a friendly atmosphere. During a microdermabrasion, the aesthetician enlists a fleet of crystals to exfoliate skin cells. The procedure, which lasts about 30 minutes with no downtime, abolishes fleshly flaws including acne scars, wrinkles, sun-damaged complexion, and oversnug wrestling masks, leaving skeleton covers silkier. A Botox treatment reins in gravity-afflicted dermises with a naturally occurring protein that relaxes the muscular culprits behind crows feet and frown lines. Faces retain firmness for three to four months before turning back into pumpkins.
At Nutrapy, owner and director Jimmy Chung and his team promote internal wellness and external beauty in a tranquil, eco-friendly environment. Chung addresses physical aches and pains not only as a licensed massage therapist, but as a reiki master and certified polarity therapist, specializing in energy work designed to facilitate healing. For the well-being of their clients and the environment, he and his staff perform services using organic products wherever possible, nourishing faces with the Éminence Organic Skin Care line and pampering nails with toxin-free polish. Chung is also working on his master's degree in Chinese medicine, so it's no surprise that the center also offers Eastern-based services such as acupuncture and tai chi classes. Located in the South Shore, Nutrapy also features a raw herbal dispensary and has tested 200 medicinal herbs.
Before treatments even start, Nutrapy helps guests feel calmer and more centered as they walk into the holistic haven, which is decorated with orchids and soothing brown and blue-green earth tones. Once inside, patrons relax in pipe-less pedicure spas that resemble overstuffed recliners, or on a cushy suede couch in the candlelit relaxation room. In the corner, a small, rock-bordered pond teems with bright orange fish and features a soothing waterfall that gurgles Beatles classics.
