Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness' pampering pioneers perform beautifying services within a fun, geometrically decorated salon space. Firm and detoxify the flesh of slightly disheveled hips or torsos with an upper- or lower-body wrap, designed to condition the skin and reduce cellulite. Each session begins with a consultation, during which an aesthetician examines your body's specific needs and devises a 90-minute treatment wrap of Anesi Parafango products. The anatomical expert slathers your skin's surface in mineral-rich sea mud and paraffin, smoothing frazzled follicles while heating the body's core to stimulate circulation and create a hostile environment for toxins, fat deposits, and pore-dwelling chipmunks.
Meanwhile, the European facial combines the cleansing power of France with the moisturization of Lichtenstein to extract impurities and tone the skin of the face and décolleté. For one hour, an epidermal expert will apply gentle yet thorough freshening techniques, leaving skin relaxed and radiant. Alternatively, the 90-minute mani-pedi lets you stay on the avant-garde of ephemeral digit sculptures by dipping paws into a paraffin bath for a soothing exfoliation. Climb into a special spa chair that massages the body and shoots jets of soothing air over the feet and back while nail technicians meticulously lacquer tips in the OPI shade of your choice.
Alaric Health, Beauty and Wellness
One part salon and spa, one part fitness center, Alaric Health Beauty and Wellness is a one-stop shop aiming to glam up, firm up, and wind down clients' bodies. Hairstylists sweep men’s and women’s manes into trendy styles and nourish scalps with deep conditioner and hydrating scalp treatments. During one-hour Swedish massages, long, flowing strokes untie knotted muscles and help rejuvenate auras cluttered with stress and stale boxes of chi, and basic and deep pore-cleansing facials exfoliate visages to help skin regain a youthful glow. Inside the full-service fitness center, bodies work toward fitness goals among rows of weight and cardio machines, and can attempt to expedite results with help from a personal trainer or prescription weight-loss program.
