Total Body Bliss
Pamper Yourself From Head to Toe
by Jill McCloskey

The start of the new season is the perfect time to revitalize your body from top to bottom. Whether your hair needs a lift or you want to save your skin from its winter roughness, you’re bound to feel like a fresh spring blossom after one (or all!) of these luxurious treatments.

Revive tired tresses with a “facial for your hair” at Blush Hair Salon & Make-up Studio. The Damage Remedy Hair & Scalp Renewal ($45) begins with a scalp massage using essential aromatherapy oils—a blend of lavender, ylang ylang and orange—to increase scalp circulation while releasing tension. Your stylist will then apply a repairing treatment that contains powerful plant ingredients, like quinoa protein for strength and tamanu oil for softness, leaving your hair looking healthy from root to tip. Combine with a styling of your choice for total hair transformation.

The Pantai Herbal Visage Face & Neck Treatment ($130) at Joseph Anthony Retreat Spa and Salon is a 75-minute treatment that combines three stages of skin beautification. First, your skin is cleansed and moisturized with herbal extracts and warm oils are used to lightly massaged pressure points. Next, heated sachets of high quality oils, fresh herbs, coconut and limes are applied to stimulate blood supply to the face. The treatment ends with a gentle massage of the areas around the eyes and other energy points.

If you’re searching for total relaxation, start by soothing your tired hands with a Hot Stone Manicure ($60) at The Polished Spa. Enjoy the perks of a classic manicure, like a deep hand massage and precision polish application, and add the penetrating comfort of heated basalt stones on your hands and arms. Finish with a Classic Paraffin Treatment ($20) for ultimate hydration and a pretty lilac polish for the perfect spring look. Your nails will thank you.

The mineral scrub with bronzing treatment ($122) at Topper’s Spa and Salon combines exfoliation with a tanning session. A skin-smoothing mineral scrub that uses sea salts, essential oils and enzymes is gently massaged onto skin before a technician lathers on bronzer by hand. You’ll be dying to show off your healthy, golden glow in a sultry swimsuit. Toppers Spa and Salon

Treat yourself to a total body tune-up at 3000 BC spa. The Body Ritual to Detoxify ($120) uses rare organic herbs, sea algae extract and essential oils to stimulate the lymphatic system, kick start the immune system, reduce swelling and improve circulation. The 50-minute process begins with an alpha hydroxy botanical scrub, smeared on the skin to eliminate surface impurities. Next, a specialized gel is applied to penetrate the skin and promote detoxification. A nourishing lotion is then slathered on the whole body, leaving skin soft and revitalized.

The AMEzing Jo-Jo ($230) signature treatment at Ame Salon and Spa combines hydrotherapy and traditional massage for a 90-minute session. The treatment begins with taking a dip in the spa’s heated tub to soak in soothing oriental blossom tea. Next, a “double rub” massage will melt your tension away—that’s two massage therapists working on your body at one time. Finally, a hot stone foot massage and a cold stone sinus remedy will leave you feeling completely refreshed.
