Permanent Great Looks Salon & Spa?s team of spa technicians enhances exteriors with a comprehensive menu of skin, body, and nail treatments. Manicure services provide customers with nails painted with Shellac polish that protects against chips for up to two weeks, even after wearers build sand castles to store stockpiles of shucked oyster shells. Toes simmer in heated bubble basins before curling up in steamy towels in the pedicure room, and aestheticians stationed in serene private rooms treat skin to body scrubs designed to polish surfaces and stir circulation. The active ingredients in body-scrub formulas range from Dead Sea salt to organic brown sugar steeped with essential oils and more conducive to soft skin than intercepting sneezes from the Marshmallow Man.

Her husband, Dr. Samuel, uses his medical expertise to supervise weight-management programs and erase the hatch marks left by Father Time with injections of Botox and other fillers. To create a one-stop beauty haven, they also enlist an expert staff of hairstylists, nail techs, and makeup artists.
Todd Beckman founded MassageLuXe with the notion that five-star service should not be limited to pricey hotels. Today, the spa's team of qualified 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 hot stone, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
Licensed massage therapist Lauren specializes in Swedish and deep-tissue massage, helping to relax the tight back and neck muscles of her clients in her Edwardsville clinic. Each Swedish massage uses flowing strokes to relieve stiffness, and each deep-tissue massage harnesses the power of deep, sustained pressure to relieve stress and pain. Better Health & Performance Chiropractic animates a functional philosophy with its services, such as rehabilitative exercises and movement-based assessments normally only used in job interviews for the person in the office that does everyone else’s daily exercise.
