Orchid Bloom Spa inspires beauty and balance with practices from Thailand and Hungary. A Thai herbal massage relieves deep-seated tension with intense stretches as the essential oils of tumeric, lemongrass, and bergamot tickle the inner senses. Treatments deploy a selection of organic Hungarian products and Thailand's Harnn products, which the spa stocks for use at home or after a hard day at the abacus. Upon arriving at the spa, clients can sip a soothing strawberry beverage while relaxing in the sunlit waiting area.
Having planned and executed massage therapy for the Tennessee Titans and competitors in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, the muscle menders at Athletic Edge know how to help the body recover from physical trauma and athletic exertion. Their highly individualized treatments pull from more than 15 modalities—soothing muscles with gliding Swedish strokes, targeting the deeper connective tissue with neuromuscular therapy, and even combining salutary techniques to treat the underlying causes of aches. Although the gentle or directed kneading can have a distinctively relaxing effect, the therapists specialize in jump-starting clients' natural healing processes and helping them overcome the soft-tissue pains that athletic activity, auto accidents, and full-contact charades can cause. The studios also partner with chiropractors and physical therapists to form a one-stop treatment center for athletes, with particular modalities complementing the strains incurred by particular sports.
Whenever possible, Ciana Salon and Day Spa's staff use natural products, from their Aveda hair-color products to body treatments infused with Dead Sea salts and seaweed. In the salon area, stylists consult with clients to determine the best cut and color to suit their predilections. They then coat manes with Aveda color products packed with sunflower, castor, and jojoba plant oils to protect hair while tinting it and making it indistinguishable from many gardens. The stylists also lengthen locks with Great Lengths extensions made from 100% human hair for a natural look. On the spa side of the business, aestheticians keep to the natural theme by enhancing facials with marine and plant extracts and energizing tourmaline minerals. They also offer treatments that fight the visibility of aging, such as custom-blended TCA skin peels and microdermabrasion with exfoliating microcrystals. The aestheticians further pamper clients by rendering body wraps packed with rosemary and peppermint, as well as hot- and cool-stone massages, which, hypothetically, would lose to paper massages.

As purveyors of all-over wellness, the staff at Mind Of Beauty Day Spa divides their attention between relaxing massage therapy and rejuvenating skincare treatments. Therapists soothe sore muscles with rhythmic pressure during acupressure and shiatsu sessions and target specific points on the feet during reflexology massages designed to promote health throughout the entire body. The spa’s aestheticians also keep busy, nourishing complexions with a variety of facials that include microdermabrasion treatments and nonsurgical face-lifts. A full menu of facial and body waxing treatments keeps skin surfaces free of hair and parasitic barnacles thanks to the swift work of a warm resin wax.
The relaxation experts at Juanita’s Bliss adhere to the ancient Indian system of ayurveda, a holistic approach to health and wellness that requires the use of plant-derived medicines, mineral-rich clays, and naturally processed oils.

The team also helps balance bodily energy with reiki sessions.
