Spa Rituals


As living beings, we are in a constant state of flux as we strive for equilibrium to combat stresses that affect our balance and well-being each day. Naturally, these stresses have an effect on our skin, body and emotions. At Strands, our goal is to design treatments to bring you back into balance, using nurturing high-touch approaches and unique sensory experiences. These facials are designed for men, women and teens. 


The root of Aveda’s holistic spa philosophy, Elemental Nature℠ is based on the five elements found in nature and within each of us. According to ancient Ayurvedic philospohy, we are composed of a combination of elements that are always changing, in and out of balance. When your body is out of balance, your skin shows the signs (blemishes, dry skin, rashes). Our goal is to restore your balance through a custom facial based on your current elemental nature.

Elemental Nature Facial

A customized facial based on your skin’s specific needs, as revealed by Aveda’s signature Elemental Nature Consultation. Great for dry and dehydrated, sensitive or oily and congested skin, this facial offers a truly personalized treatment.

Tulasara Facial Treatment

Dry, oily, uneven, sensitive, anti-aging and acneic skin conditions and eye concerns can all be addressed with a customized Tulasara facial treatment. After a thorough consultation, your skin therapist will provide the best combination of products, personalized Aveda aromas and techniques and design a customized treatment that will move your skin toward balance and reveal its natural beauty.

Dual Exfoliation Peel

The Dual Exfoliation Peel is Aveda's latest advancement in non-invasive, skin-renewing treatments. Using innovative techniques, this treatment combines Aveda's naturally derived mechanical and biochemical exfoliation methods into one powerful service that transforms and rejuvenates the skin through the process of dual exfoliation. The treatment delivers immediate, visible results in improved skin texture and radiance; smooth appearance of fine, dry lines; and refined pores, revealing fresher, younger-looking skin. In a clinical study, the Dual Exfoliation Peel achieved better results than a combined microdermabrasion/30% glycolic peel treatment in both immediate smoothness and radiance, plus significantly better results in smoothness, radiance and the appearance of skin tone one week later.

30 Minute Express Perfecting Plant Peel Treatment

Powered by plants, Aveda’s Perfecting Plant Peel™ system performs like a 30% glycolic peel – naturally and without the redness and irritation. The Perfecting Plant Peel™ can be performed as a stand-alone 45 minute treatment or added on to any of our signature facial treatments.
