As its name implies, High Maintenance Day Spa & Salon strives to meet the beauty demands of its most discriminating clientele with a comprehensive array of relaxing treatments. The spa’s stylists, nail technicians, tanners, and massage therapists continue to carry out the mission set forth by the Crims, who founded the spa in 2006 with the vision of a retreat from life’s hectic day-to-day routine. Indeed, the only stresses to be found amid the salon’s soft-hued tiffany-blue walls are those that arise when choosing which of the many services to indulge in. Couples massages make for romantic and relaxing experiences, waxing removes unwanted fuzz, and spray tans prepare bodies for playing hide-and-seek amid bronze garden sculptures. Before snipping their first locks or untying their first muscle knots, the staff establishes a relationship with each customer through friendly chitchat and an informal consultation.
Licensed massage therapist Tina Lee helps clients regain balance, physical comfort, and spiritual fulfillment one massage stroke at a time. She’s been in the field for more than 12 years, building up a repertoire of bodywork modalities that combat stress and physical discomfort. At ChakraWorks, she channels her healing powers through Swedish, trigger-point, reflexology, and hot-stone massage, inducing a sense of calm and well-being in clients and massage tables alike.
The experienced staff at Studio Allure smooth and soothe bodies from tresses to toes. A licensed massage therapist treats tired physiques to a one-hour Swedish massage that will improve circulation and send you into a subdued state of relaxation. Mollycoddled muscle fibers and slacked sinews will release all their pent-up tension and old tax receipts.
Licensed massage therapist Robin Hightower eases muscular tension with a relaxing compilation of massage services tailored to fit each client's unique needs and lifestyle. A 90-minute deep-tissue massage tackles subterranean tension, tightness, and pain and addresses specific pain concerns, such as localized injuries and shin bones that refuse to admit any connection to the knee bones. Lie amidst warm lighting and soothing green walls as weighty strokes forcefully caress maligned musculature, reinstating equilibrium and restoring structural integrity lost after years of leaving your back crumpled in the hamper. An elongating series of stretches fortifies more remote crevasses, improving range of motion in unapproachable joints, including hip flexors. New clients should plan to arrive 15 minutes early to complete brief intake and health forms, or fill them out beforehand.
Led by former pageant gal and licensed aesthetician Marci Ruffin Delaney, m.d. Skin strives not only to pamper outer shells but also to boost each client's inner sense of calm and confidence. The signature European facial treats mugs to exfoliation, deep-pore cleansing, and extraction (if necessary), leaving behind only a lustrous sheen and freckles that can speak conversational French. The 55-minute service also includes a massage of the face, neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, and feet, aiding total relaxation while wringing out accumulated storm water.
Cool Artistry Bridal & Spa's licensed cosmetologists and savvy stylists help reduce wedding-day stress by gussying up brides-to-be on location. On-site services include hairstyling, makeup application, and tips for how to avoid water-squirting lapels. Within their salon in Caribbean Suns Tanning Salon, stylists treat visitors to haircuts, waxes, and eyelash extension applications. Their manicures and pedicures pamper appendages with products from OPI and Essie, as visitors slip into relaxed reveries and feet recover from overnight tap-dancing marathons.
