From within the tranquil spa, aestheticians keep skin radiant by employing 11 types of facials along with a roster of skin enhancements—from an exfoliating peel to wrinkle-reducing LED light therapy. Antioxidant-rich ingredients such as green tea and Dead Sea mineral mud draw out toxins during body wraps, and a complimentary scalp massage squashes tension and errant thought bubbles. The staff also tends to nails and coifs, and combines many treatments for full-day spa experiences. Between sessions, guests can make use of the spa's luxurious facilities, which include men and women's locker rooms, relaxation lounge, heated whirlpools, steam rooms, and sauna.
European Waxing Center uses hard wax made from beeswax, which is all natural, requires no painful paper strips, and is the equivalent of catnip for Pooh bears. There is also a bevy of waxing services available for both women and men. Ladies can experience up to six weeks of razor freedom with a full leg wax ($58), or add a boost of beach confidence with a bikini ($32) or Brazilian wax ($39). Evict rent-skipping hand-hair ($10 for women, $12 for men), or let freshly de-stranded piggies ($10 for women, $13 for men) go "wee wee wee" all the way to your flip-flops. Gentlemen can cut down on wind resistance during shirtless rollerblading excursions with a chest ($23), neck ($14), and full back ($50) wax.
The aesthetic professionals at Salon Elizabeth treat skincare as an art as well as a science, wielding advanced products from Repêchage, Cellex-C, DermaQuest Skin Therapy, and glo therapeutics. Over the span of two decades, the staff has cultivated a peaceful environment in which to perform skin-revitalization treatments and break the news to their parents that MTV no longer plays music videos. In private treatment rooms, they help clients erase signs of aging with medical therapies such as IPL photo-facials, biosonic microdermabrasion, and alpha-hydroxy acid peels, as well as spa therapists such as European, herbal-enzyme, and vitamin C-infused anti-aging facials. They also tone whole bodies with seaweed wraps, tangerine-lavender scrubs, infrared sauna sessions, and therapeutic massages.
Rose Garden Massage?s cadre of massage therapists targets pain caused by injury, stress, and lymphedema. Massage sessions calibrate each stroke to the client's needs, pulling together modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, lymphatic drainage, and sports massage. Guided meditations attempt to detect emotional sources of pain or retrieve forgotten locker combinations, and workshops provide a space to share knowledge about topics such as couples massage and women?s empowerment. A lounge offers space to linger posttreatment or have a breakup talk with the knots in tight muscles before appointments.
