Welcome to the Body Bar

Signature Massage Sessions include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy or Pregnancy.

Our Signature Facial is the classic European facial, which begins with cleansing to remove makeup and impurities. This is followed by an exfoliation process that removes dead skin cells and generates skin cell turnover. Next, the pores are deeply cleansed with steam that is both gently blown over the face and applied to the skin with warm towels. Your esthetician will analyze your skin type and tailor this treatment to your specific needs; Dry/Dehydrated, Oily, Sensitive, or Mature/Aging Skin. This rejuvenating facial will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face the world with a healthy, glowing complexion.

Unlike shaving, waxing removes the entire hair, which with consistent waxing, may take up to four weeks to grow back. Hair that has been shaved may grow back feeling coarse and looking darker. Hair that grows back after waxing often feels softer than it did before.

Note: For best results, we recommend hair growth to be between 10-14 days from your last shave. Waxing prior to or after tanning, body treatments, and some services may cause skin sensitivity. Certain prescription medications may also cause sensitivity. It is important that you consult your esthetician about any concerns you may have prior to receiving any services.

Get the Most Realistic, Flawless, Sunless Tan Ever Created! Airbrush Tanning eliminates all of the mess and problems associated with tanning creams, and spray tanning booths. There are no streaks, orange palms, or dirty looking knees and elbows. Airbrush tanning is a personal treatment that’s tailored to your individual needs. Airbrush tanning works by having a trained professional spray a customized tanning formula onto clean, un-lotioned skin. The amino acids in your skin respond naturally to the DHA and other complementary ingredients within the tanning formula to produce the most beautiful sunless tan you’ve ever seen, in less than 30 minutes.

One of the other benefits of a spray tan is that it is UV free, making it ideal for pregnant women, those with extremely sensitive skin, and others seeking an alternative tanning experience.

Change your look (and your outlook!) by tanning. Tanning not only provides a positive influence on your outward appearance, but it also makes you feel good. It allows you to keep your summer look all year round, or just darken your appearance prior to a big event, be it a party, wedding, prom, or vacation.

Our Silver tanning bed is designed to get your base tan started and has a 15-minute maximum exposure schedule. This bed also features a fan at the base for ventilation.
