Since developing their skills at schools such as Scientific Marvel and the Professional Institute of Massage Therapy, the ladies behind Envy Esthetics Studio have been perfecting outer appearances and lifting the spirits of their clients. Using pharmaceutical-grade Image Skincare products, the team's aestheticians neutralize blemishes and combat oily or dry skin with deep cleansing facials. Elsewhere in the spa, nail technicians fancy up hands and feet with shellac mani-pedis and a little top hat for each finger and toe. In private, tranquil treatment rooms, massage therapists help tense bodies shed stress and discomfort with relaxing bodywork.
The welcoming staff of Sassy Nailz and Tropical Sun Tan Spa aim to cultivate a Zen-like tranquility of soothing aromas, relaxing services, and placid surroundings. OPI polishes buttress nail services that support the habit of scratching initials into dried pavement with both durable shellac polishes and hearty, artificial gel nails. The staff pampers bodies head to toe, from rejuvenating facials to body sugaring that depilates hair with a chemical-free blend of sugar and citrus. Harmony with nature comes full circle with variable levels of UV tanning beds designed to mimic the sun's various moods.
While the Fountain of Youth's location in the wild is as of yet unknown, when it's found, it will probably contain a large amount of the vitamins, plant extracts, and antioxidants that have been discovered to stave off the visible signs of aging. Forever Young Spa Boutique's goal is to connect clients with the treatments and products that harness these anti-aging effects. Its treatments take many different shapes and include photofacials, mink eyelash extensions, and several types of manicures and pedicures. The backbone of all these indulgent spa services, though, is Forever Young's curated selection of products. These include therapeutic essential oils, La Biosthetique Paris's makeup collection, and SeaVital products derived from Dead Sea minerals. The staff also uses extremely customizable Dermalogica skincare products that are all natural and never tested on animals or particularly realistic action figures.
A graduate of Vancouver's West Coast College of Massage Therapy, Vitality Massage Therapy Clinic's Lincoln Lau specializes in holistic healing with an exotic twist. He employs long, flowing strokes and deep forearm techniques to induce relaxation during hawaiian lomilomi massages, which can last anywhere from one to five hours depending on the client's needs or the health of his watch battery. Lau also leads the body through a collection of yoga postures combined with deep stretches and acupressure therapy during thai yoga massages and helps perfect posture with manupractic structural integration––a modernized form of deep-tissue massage designed to realign the body across several sessions.
Advanced Cosmetic Clinic and sister business Advanced Massage help clients shed discomfort and skin issues through massage, laser therapy, and injectables. The professionals glide low-level lasers over injured or painful muscle tissue to increase oxygen and blood flow to the affected area, and they pair the treatment with therapeutic massages to relieve pain caused by working or attempting to hoist a car to upstage showboating superheroes. To shoo away facial signs of age and stress, Holly deposits expertly injected serums into tissues to relax taut muscles and relieve wrinkles, a treatment she's practiced for more than eight years.
Mira and her staff at Esthetics by Mira nourish skin with organic products during beautifying and pampering treatments. Their four facials treat a variety of skincare woes; the anti-aging microderm facial, for instance, gently removes the topmost layer of skin to reveal smoother skin underneath. It's great for softening wrinkles and fading marks, including any pen marks from an overzealous author after a book signing. In addition to facials, the staff performs full-body massages and waxing, as well as enhances eye drama with mink lash extensions.
