Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of massage therapists and aestheticians continues to realize and build upon Todd's initial aspirations. A spa day at MassageLuXe includes all the perks one might expect from a vacation resort, from facials and massages to full-body waxing and baths in warm, effervescent champagne. The company's services tend to exceed expectations in other ways, too; along with standard massages such as Swedish and deep tissue, therapists are proficient in specialty modalities such as bio-mat, reflexology, and aromatherapy.?
Relaxation is the ultimate goal at EveN Baby Massage, and in pursuit of that goal the studio features a team of licensed massage therapists with a wide range of specialties. EveN Baby offers more than a dozen types of massage, some of which include Swedish, prenatal, hot and cold stone, and reflexology. They also specialize in infant massage for babies. To make the experience even more relaxing, therapists offer enhancements such as a paraffin hand and feet treatments, Indian head massages, and European facials.
Dreams Day Spa?s beauty pros work hard to erase even the slightest trace of tension from their clients? bodies. They glide hot stones over dermal canvases and unfurl deep-tissue massage techniques to reach buried muscle knots and triple knots. Custom facials relax everything above the neck, and mani-pedis treat overworked hands and feet to paraffin wax, aromatherapy, and a choice of polish. The experts also swaddle clients in body wraps chock-full of extracts, herbs, and botanicals with detoxifying elements.
Named Best Salon and Best Spa in the 2012 Daily Press Readers' Choice Awards, Shear Style Salon and Spa pampers guests within the confines of its orange-ochre walls. Stylists such as senior coif crafter Lauren Frogge revamp bedraggled ‘dos into on-trend tresses during cut, color, and retexturing appointments that use top-shelf products from Moroccanoil and label.m. Stylists can professionally apply makeup or rearrange strands into stunning updos for guests heading to a special occasion such as a wedding or high-school reunion.
Meanwhile, the spa aims to repeat its 2012 success with a slate of skin and massage services. Geared toward addressing specific epidermal grievances, treatments include a colloidal oatmeal facial that ups the skin’s lipid count to stave off dryness, as well as photorejuvenation, which marshals light beams and NASA-developed technology to reintroduce even, fetching skin to world-weary visages or especially beloved hairless cats.
Each staff member at All About You Salon & Day Spa kicks in some specific expertise, allowing them to work together in the pursuit of beauty and health. Stylists cut and color hair and mold manes into classy updos before patrons go to important photo shoots or get their heads stuck through the bannisters at the White House. Aestheticians armed with wax remove unwanted patches of fuzz and wield gentle chemical solutions to even out skin tones during peels. Drawing on five distinct modalities, including deep tissue and reflexology, massage therapists elicit happy sighs. A weight-loss specialist visits the salon once a week to help customize fitness programs for patrons.
Instead of withholding the secrets to healthy nails, the expert staffers at Polish Nail Bar do the unthinkable—they dispense them freely to all who sidle up to the black manicure bar that doubles as a social hub. Owner Crystal Davis and her team of technicians get to know each client personally during sessions by chatting freely as though they were catching up with long-lost friends or robot friends that were dropped in water. Each nail treatment occurs in steps, with manicurists tagging in and out for various parts of the procedure to apply their unique expertise where it counts. Mavala, a cuticle cream made in Switzerland, helps fingers and toes replenish much-needed vitamins and amino acids and delicate ghosts of scent drift from essential oils and jojoba oils. After clients leave, ready to raise their hands during secret-mission briefings with newfound pride, treatment areas and equipment are wiped down with hospital-grade disinfectants that evict lingering germs and odors.
