For the last decade, the staff at Tavernier's Salon & Spa has revitalized appearances and moods with a slew of salon and spa services. Defined by its brightly colored walls and artwork composed of primary yellows and reds, the interior is home to a team of diligent stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists.
Tavernier's hairstylists wield Redken and Matrix products with full-color treatments and strategically placed highlights to add depth to monochromatic hairdos. Nail technicians prettify appendages with Opi polish and soothing, hydrating dips into paraffin wax, and skincare specialists administer facials such as the one-hour basic European facial, which opens up pores like they're interviewees on Oprah so that they release their pent-up dirt and leave with a cathartic sense of cleansing and exfoliation.
Cindy Guirino is a registered and licensed dietitian and a solution-focused weight-management therapist with more than 15 years of experience. After a preliminary evaluation, Guirino will test your metabolism's knowledge of 80s sitcoms and determine your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which is how many calories your body is burning while at rest. Using this information, Cindy can work with you to determine weight-loss goals and a plan of action to overcome the donut lobbyists and other challenges standing in the way of a more healthy life.
Named after a Sanskrit word meaning beauty, abundance, and sanctity, Sri Yoga Center helps students achieve physical health and inner peace inside the calming, 9,000-square-foot haven. Seasoned instructors draw from the Para, Sivananda, and Himalayan yoga traditions as they weave traditional poses and breathing exercises into sequences that cultivate enough strength and focus to beat yourself at chess.
Minds and chakras open during Heart-Centered Flow classes, in which students explore themes such as gratitude and compassion through movement and self-reflection. Ninety-degree temperatures draw out toxins during hot-yoga sessions, deepening stretches and boosting circulation as bodies balance and bend within the balmy airs. To foster wellness of mind, body, spirit, and shadow, visitors may also book massages, reiki relaxation therapy, and Ayurvedic healing sessions.
Within Gravity Spa, soft blue lighting and tranquil tones create an atmosphere that beckons visitors to relax and center their minds. Light and sound vanish within flotation tanks, where 10 inches of water saturated with 1,000 pounds of Epson salt create more buoyancy than a rubber ducky wearing water wings. The touted effects of this unique therapy are many, ranging from relaxation and a reduction in blood pressure to enhanced creativity and better sleep. Elsewhere in the spa, massage therapists provide a different type of relaxation in private sessions centered on deep-tissue, hot-stone, prenatal, and other massage techniques.
Enthusiastic nail technicians at Graffitti's Hair & Nail Salon set vibrantly colored trends with glamorous nail treatments. Technicians buff fingernails into attractive shapes and tame cuticles with careful precision. Then, nail artists apply the client's choice of OPI or China Glaze nail products. Clients can make their fingers and toes shine together with like-minded colors, or indulge in multi-hued shellac finishes that catch eyes, turn necks, and challenge the faith of all paint-by-number enthusiasts. Upgrades for french tips ($5) and nail art ($5+) are also available.
Behind the well-kempt storefront, a long hallway leads to each of Sun Kissed Tanning & Beauty’s private rooms. Inside, five levels of UV tanning beds power up to surround visitors in a warm, glowing light. The beds come in both horizontal and vertical versions, so clients can relax in a reclined position or hiss at a cable-company phone rep while standing up. Or they can skip the UV rays altogether—during airbrush tans, a certified staffer coats physiques head to toe in a tanning solution that provides an instant bronze.
