Though sun-shaped mirrors and spiraling chandeliers abound in Soleil Salon & Spa, they pale in comparison to clients’ skin after a diamond-facial microdermabrasion. The spa’s aestheticians take their cues from the sun, brightening complexions with custom treatments that target conditions such as acne, fine lines, and inflammation. Not to be outshone, stylists illuminate hair with clear gloss and multidimensional highlights. They draw on an array of professional products from Aveda and label.m, and their commitment to innovation has led to such services as the GKhair keratin-smoothing treatment—an advanced therapy that eliminates frizz for up to five months, or roughly as long as it would take to extinguish the sun with a super soaker.
Dr. Lisa Hatzos, owner of Renew MediSpa, has been enhancing appearances with nonsurgical aesthetic treatments since 2005. These knife-less procedures include beauty injections that tame wrinkled muscles or restore fullness to deflated features, as well as microdermabrasion and chemical peels. Dr. Hatzos and her team use lasers to zap unwanted body hair, tighten lax skin, and swat menacingly at spider veins. Velashape treatments, meanwhile, smooth cellulite and contour the body. Some of the more traditional spa offerings available at this modern facility include cleansing facials and mani-pedis.
Before dispensing haircuts and color, stylists at Pure Perfection Salon & Spa conduct an in-depth analysis of clients’ facial shape, skin tone, and lifestyle to design a look that suits them. During the treatment, stylists pay attention to hair’s natural tendencies so that clients can re-create styles at home without resorting to heavy hairsprays, gels, or patronizing lectures. The salon is closed Tuesdays and Sundays and is open until 8 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays.
Amy K Massage's licensed massage therapists tailor therapeutic-massage sessions to each client's specific needs. They draw on Swedish, sports, neuromuscular, deep-tissue, and trigger-point techniques to work to relieve soreness and tension. They also offer therapies such as hot-stone massage, prenatal massage, and infant massage with instructions for caregivers.
Essential Massage's licensed therapists treat clients with a variety of massage treatments to promote wellness and better health. They soothe knotted muscles with high-pressure and hot-stone massages, and they marry techniques from two modalities to create optimum relaxation during the combination massage. Their range-of-motion treatments release joint restriction and increase flexibility, and their Revitalize Five treatment works to exfoliate the back while invigorating hands and feet.
Enhancing Mother Nature's spiritual flow, Green Tea Yoga energizes chakras and enlivens aspiring yogis with a rotating schedule of seasonal 60-, 75-, or 90-minute classes. Green Tea Yoga's experienced instructors guide twisters and toners through a series of poses to help to strengthen postures and limber up limbs. EarthSky yoga, a moderate-intensity class, brims with Vinyasa flow techniques such as bending, stretching, and controlled breathing. Students in search of a more intense course can slide into a Forrest yoga session, and moms-to-be can partake in a prenatal course or the Momaste class, designed to help to relieve stress and shake off lingering fears of toddlers taking over the world. Occasional children’s classes are also offered throughout the year.
