Lavender spa products with dried lavender flowers on a wooden table.

Melt your stress away with one of Cooper Spa’s new Harmonic Lavender services. The soft ambient music, exceptionally clean workstations and complimentary robe and slippers provide a relaxing atmosphere you won’t want to leave. With spa professionals expertly trained and guiding you through every step of the process, nothing unwanted goes on your skin or nails. You’ll leave your service with a relaxed mind and body and nails in the best condition they’ve ever been.

Harmonic Lavender Pedicure

Sit back, relax and prop your feet up in an oversized massage chair. A dry, warm towel with drops of lavender essential oil is gently placed around your neck when you begin your service. The sweet, floral lavender scent instantly brings comfort and clarity; you can’t help but drift into a peaceful state of mind during this Harmonic Lavender Pedicure. Your stress will instantly melt away the second you slip your feet into the warm lavender fresh soak.

After a relaxing soak, your nails are cut and filed before the lavender sugar scrub is massaged into your skin. After the exfoliating mask is rinsed off, your legs feel soft and buttery smooth. The calming effects of the lavender essential oils brings increased clarity to your mind as you relax.

Next, your cuticles are trimmed, nails buffed and cuticle oil rubbed in. A lavender moisture mask is generously applied to the feet and calves, instantly hydrating your tired feet. Close your eyes and relax for five minutes as the cooling mask soaks into the skin, leaving the lavender scent lingering on your body the rest of the day.

Finally, a luxurious lavender lotion and massage is given, releasing tension, aches and pains from your legs. Select the polish of your choice to finish off this relaxing pedicure and walk away feeling refreshed and ready to take on the rest of your day.

Harmonic Lavender Manicure

Pedicures not your thing? Try a relaxing and therapeutic Harmonic Lavender Manicure to de-stress this summer! Start with a lavender fresh soak to soften cuticles and cleanse the nails. Your nail beds are thoroughly cleaned—nails clipped, filed and shaped to your liking—before a lavender sugar scrub is applied to the forearms and hands. This special blend of natural lavender essential oil and sugar mix exfoliates your rough, dry skin leaving it soft and glowing. Fresh, warm towels wrapped around the arms and hands add to the calming experience. Oh, how soothing; but the pampering doesn’t end here.

Your cuticles are cleaned up next. Cuticles are trimmed, nails are buffed to shine and cuticle oil is rubbed in to protect the nails. Indulge in the heavenly lavender scented moisture mask applied next to hydrate the skin. Arms and hands are wrapped in another set of warm, wet towels, allowing your skin to fully soak up the calming effects of the treatment. Sink into the seat as the warmth takes over your whole body. Once removed, the moisture mask leaves your skin dewy and silky smooth.

This manicure ends with the subtle yet comforting luxurious lavender scented lotion and massage so relaxing, you’ll want to fall asleep. Feel the tension leave your body as the lotion is massaged into your arms, hands and fingers. No manicure is complete without the finishing touch of the polish of your choice. Choose a neutral color to compliment your everyday look or spice it up with something fun for the summer—whatever you choose, you’re sure to leave with beautifully-refreshed, polished nails.

Have time to spare? After your service, enjoy the sauna, whirlpool and steam room located inside Cooper Fitness Center to further your relaxation. Complimentary use of the locker room facilities are available for use during the day of treatment. For your convenience and peace of mind, we provide complimentary childcare for children ages 2 months to 12 years at Cooperized Kids based on length of time and availability.

Experience the relaxing and calming effects of lavender yourself with one of Cooper Spa’s new services. Choose from the Harmonic Lavender Manicure, Pedicure or Sugar Scrub body treatment. For a complete day of relaxation, try our Harmonic Lavender Escape package which includes all three.

Managing Your Daily Stress

Stress can overcome our lives in an instant. From things like work to raising a family and everything in between, stress and anxieties can easily build up. One way to help relieve pain within the body and reduce stress is Muscle Activation Techniques® (MAT). Paige Cervantes, Cooper Spa MAT Specialist, shares her personal story, thoughts on dealing with stress and how MAT sessions have helped her clients relieve some of the built-up tension, aches and pains that come along with life.

MAT as a Stress Reliever

MAT is a hands-on therapy used to reduce pain by pinpointing weak points in the muscles and joints, increasing range of motion and finding the root of the problem. “When someone gets on my table, they have to be an active participant in what I do. This is not necessarily a feel-good massage in the moment because we are working on strengthening the muscles, but many patients feel pain relief well before the one-hour session ends,” says Cervantes.

MAT can be effective for individuals with previous injuries related to work, exercise and more, and on those who have general aches and pains. Not being able to manage this pain can cause stress and anxiety in everyday life. Cervantes has found that “often, the root of the problem is entirely different than where the pain is located. I’ve had people come in with knee problems and then found imbalances in their feet. When I can pinpoint the main cause of the pain, then I can help individuals manage it which alleviates stress.”

De-Stress Techniques

Identifying techniques to de-stress and fit your lifestyle can be challenging. Every person is going to relax in different ways and just because a massage works for someone else, that doesn’t mean it will work for you. The trick is to try different stress-relief techniques to see what works for you and your schedule. With a background in massage therapy, personal training and MAT, Cervantes has found a variety of ways to deal with stress, many of which she implements into her own life.

Massage can be an ideal way to relax. A Swedish massage is recommended because less pressure is used compared to other techniques. This massage encourages your muscles to relax and release built-up tension by manipulating the muscles and soft tissue, reducing physical stress.

Exercise is an extremely effective way to relieve stress and anxiety. Anything to get you moving, such as going to a yoga class, can help calm your inner anxiety and provide a good stretch. Activities including walking, running and strength training can help you release your emotions. When you physically exert yourself, you may feel a sense of relief and it can help lower the anxiety and stress you are dealing with.  

Talk to people. Share with your friends or family what is causing you stress. They may be able to ease some of that with words of encouragement or advice. Surrounding yourself with people you enjoy being around can boost your mood and help get your mind off your stressors for a little bit.

Create a stress jar. Find a small jar and label it—for example, no stress zone, stress jar, all my stresses. Anytime you feel anxiety or stress, write a note about it and stick it in the jar, almost as if you are giving it away and releasing it from your life. Although this doesn’t fix the thing you are stressing about, it is symbolic of letting it go and taking a small break from thinking about it.

Sometimes our stress is bigger than ourselves. Taking a step back and focusing on the good in life can help alleviate anxiety and stress-ridden thoughts. “I’m a cancer survivor” says Cervantes. “That was a really stressful time in my life. I didn’t know if I would get to see my kids grow up or my daughter get married. I had this overwhelming feeling of stress and anxiety that consumed my life. I had to step back and realize my disease was out of my control. It was bigger than me. I spent a lot of time praying and relying on God to help me find a way out of it. Realizing I couldn’t change what was happening in my life and fully embracing the life I had been given pulled me out of a dark place and woke me up again. I’ve been cancer-free for 23 years now and I try not to let everyday stress get the best of me.”

Whether it’s having a massage, exercising, focusing on your faith or creating a stress jar, finding something that eases your mind and reduces your stress can be extremely beneficial. Letting stress overcome your life can affect you physically and mentally if you don’t find an outlet. Stress is a normal, inevitable part of life but finding ways to ease your mind, let go and relax can help bring peace to your day.

A Very Berry Way to Melt Away Stress

Frosted Berry stress-relieving services at Cooper Spa

Start 2022 with Our Seasonal Spa Special. (It’s the Berries!)

It’s no secret the holiday season can be a bit stressful. OK, who are we kidding? Between last-minute shopping, holiday parties and making treats for your kids’ teachers, holidays can be a LOT stressful.

With the new year here, Cooper Spa has the perfect antidote to stress—our Frosted Berry Pedicure and Facial featuring vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and essential oils your thirsty skin will soak up like a sponge. These luxurious services soothe your senses and relax your body with the fragrance of fresh berries. Two seasonal services you do not want to miss!

Frosted Berry Pedicure: 60 minutes, $75

More than a pedicure, our Frosted Berry Pedicure is an immersive experience—one that begins to melt stress away the second your weary feet slide into a warm, fragrant bath. Ahhh… After a luxurious soak, a berry-scented moisturizing emollient is deeply massaged into your feet and calves (yes, it’s as heavenly as it sounds), after which a Frosted Berry scrub is gently applied, exfoliating all that rough, dry skin.

Next, cuticles are trimmed, nails are buffed and cuticle oil is rubbed in. A yummy- scented mask is then massaged into your feet and legs all the way up to your knees. Legs and feet are wrapped in warm towels for five minutes so your skin can absorb the benefits of the treatment. (Will the bliss never end?)

After soaking up the amazing, therapeutic benefits of the mask, legs and feet are rinsed and massaged with a luxurious berry-scented, moisture-sealing lotion. In the final step, your polish color of choice is meticulously applied, leaving you with beautiful toenails, a relaxed outlook on life and skin that’s aglow with good health.

Frosted Berry Facial: 75 minutes, $140

Designed for maximum cleansing, exfoliation and hydration, our Frosted Berry Facial delivers immediate, gratifying results. Your skin will appear firmer and plumper, revitalized and downright luminous. All with no downtime!

“Sun, pollution, smart devices, food and genetics can all have a negative effect on skin,” said Lisa Boyle, Cooper Spa manager. “At Cooper Spa, we use only science-based products designed to help mitigate damage, combat signs of aging and help restore that youthful, healthy glow.”

The eight-step Frosted Berry Facial begins with a customized Firm Skin Cleanser to rid skin of impurities and toxins stressful times often bring. Afterward, Eminence® Organic Mangosteen Mist is applied to help balance your skin’s oils and stimulate collagen production.

Your skin is then prepped for the all-important exfoliation process with an application of Eminence Organic Bright Skin Exfoliating Peel. Once the prep is completed a thin layer of Arctic Berry Enzyme Exfoliant is manipulated into the skin. Steps two and three include the application and timed processing of additional Arctic Berry products formulated to penetrate layers of skin and reveal the more youthful-looking skin underneath. The exfoliation process finishes with an oh-so-soothing chamomile toner.

As the busyness of the holidays becomes a distant memory and you’re ready to walk out the door looking luminous and feeling great, you’ll receive one final spritz of Mangosteen Mist, followed by an application of Bamboo Firming Fluid or Arctic Berry Peptide Cream, based on your skin type. (Stress? What stress?)

Think it can’t get any more indulgent? Think again. The luxurious Blueberry Massage Soufflé may just give you an out-of-body experience as it’s gently massaged into your skin after which a Firm Skin Masque is applied.

Don’t miss out on these stress-relieving services. Our Frosted Berry Spa Special ends February 25, so book your appointment now. Call 972.392.7729 to reserve your facial or pedicure. For Cooper Spa’s complete menu of services, visit cooperspa.com.
