At Ethos Fitness Spa for Women, the focus isn't just on inner health, but outer health as well. The combination gym and spa sports a variety of weight-training and cardio machines, as well as workout spaces for small group-fitness classes, enabling ladies to fine-tune their form whichever way is most comfortable. Meanwhile, inside the spa, clients can soothe recently worked muscles with a therapeutic massage, correct their complexion with a facial treatment, or even highlight newly toned limbs with a UV-free airbrush tan. Staff nutritionists also bring outer and inner health together by constructing personalized food plans that can include everything from meal planning to kitchen makeovers to tips for successfully disarming the grocery store sample lady.
Royal Table Massage owner Rebecca Herrmann moved her nine-year-old business into its current location so that she and her staff could impart relaxation to more clients at once—seven, to be precise. She and her staff have mastered therapeutic massages but also utilize massage’s rejuvenating principles in treatments for the face and body. The space’s turquoise-and-blue color scheme exudes serenity, easing clients into the services that tend to leave them feeling as relaxed as a rooster dining at a vegan restaurant.
With each knead, Serenity Massage Therapy draws upon Eastern and Western philosophical notions of wellness to calm clients and elevate their sense of being. Licensed and nationally certified massage therapists mold muscles with 60- or 90-minute massages, which deplete stress stocks and alleviate tension. Swedish massage helps improve circulation and reduce the mental fatigue of reciting pi backward, and deep-tissue massage works out chronic tension associated with overuse through slow and deep strokes and concentrated pressure.

The salon also purveys a line of creative, stylish accessories, ranging from elegant jewelry and scarves to hand-knit yarn sideburns.
Inside this full-service spa, hair, skin, and nails are fawned over with equal amounts of attention and care. Cuts, coloring, and perms deftly rectify tangled and overgrown hairdos, whereas facials coax glowing tones from the skin with assistance from the Biodroga skincare line. To accentuate stylish new 'dos and dewy cheeks, technicians affix lash extensions to clients’ eyes and set bodies to full bathing-suit mode with Chocolate Sun organic airbrush tanning—who have been featured on The Today Show. Spirits are also rallied thanks to a roster of Swedish, deep-tissue, and foot massages, which put mind and body back into balance by prying stress and tension from muscles and lodged quarters from ears.
