Kingsmill Resort's grounds surround visitors in gardens, woodlands, and the gurgling of the James River. The aestheticians and stylists of The Spa at Kingsmill take inspiration and bottle nature's scents from these landscapes, developing spa and salon services to immerse guests in natural splendor. Facial peels draw on the organic enzymes of herbs and fruits, body wraps hydrate and invigorate skin with natural elements, such as chocolate, rose, or oatmeal, and massages alternate the placement of warm basalt and cold marble stones. Combining these naturally based treatments, the spa's staff curates full- and half-day spa experiences, including packages tailored for mothers-to-be, teenagers, and men. After guests are perfectly relaxed, they can pep back up with a fitness and wellness program of group classes such as yoga and water aerobics, all led by professional staffers.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
Clients walking into La Bella Delle Rose Salon might sense a warm, personal aesthetic shaping the styling studio, even if they don't know that the dark-wood reception desk was hand-built by the owner's father. Sherbet-colored walls backdrop ice-cream-themed decorations, a popcorn machine commingles with the coffeemaker in the waiting area, and a manicure station recalls a fortune-teller's table with its scarlet damask draping. While basking in Pureology hair treatments or being prepped for weddings and other landmark occasions, guests sit beneath studio lighting, which helps them tell stylists apart from IRS agents.

Under the expert leadership of Dr. Joel Backer, the staff at Women's Health and Wellness promotes beauty and vitality through soothing, non-invasive procedures. The 20-minute treatment begins with a soothing face wash, then using Derma Genesis technology, surprises worn-out skin with a much-deserved exfoliation, removing imperfections, chipping away dead skin cells, and restoring the exquisite ruins of a beautiful face from years ago. A clay mint mask then removes impurities and softens the epidermis. The doctor also rejuvenates forlorn visages with a mixture of fortified, all-natural moisturizers infused with antioxidants and green tea, ensuring a healthy shine. Lastly, to foil the sun's plot to make people old, an anti-aging sunscreen is applied to faces, protecting their newfound loveliness from jealous UV rays.
