How to Make Mother's Day Memorable This Year at SPA LUX


Every year, Mother’s Day seems to creep up on us when we’re not looking – hence the mad rush to the drug store or gas station for yet another sad bouquet of wilted roses or a last-minute greeting card. It’s true that it’s the thought that counts, but this year turn your kind thoughts into applause-worthy action by giving your favorite mom the ultimate gift: relaxation.

SPA LUX is an oasis of pampering and calm where ladies – and men! – can indulge in a wide range of luxurious treatments. Here are a few of our favorites, all at great deals for the month of May in celebration of Mother’s Day.

Purifying Facial – 85 Minutes

Now $120 (Regularly $140)

Just like our other SPA LUX facials, the Purifying Facial starts with a comprehensive skin analysis and personal consultation so treatment can be completely customized. From deep pore cleaning and exfoliation to extractions and a detoxifying shiatsu pressure point massage, this facial promotes healing and works to banish future breakouts before they occur.

Side-by-Side Couples Massage – 85 Minutes

Now $200 Per Pair (Regularly $220)

Use Mother’s Day as an opportunity to reconnect with a Side-by-Side Massage for two. Great for that special gift of quality mother/daughter time together, you will receive a therapeutic full-body massage as well as access to our steam room and sauna, so you can turn your 85-minute treatment into an entire afternoon of conversation and fun.

Any Bikini Waxing

10% Off Regular Price

Pool season is on the horizon. Help your busy wife with a little pre-vacation prep when you give the gift of a swimsuit, high, or Brazilian bikini wax that’ll leave her fuzz-free and ready for the beach. Our French hard wax is very gentle and works even at cooler temperatures so it’s ideal for even the most sensitive spots.

Dead Sea Salt Polish – 30 Minutes

Now $45 (Regularly $60)

Winter often leaves our skin feeling tight, dry, and itchy, and between soccer practice and overseeing homework, there’s never enough time to moisturize at home. Our Dead Sea Salt Polish uses an all-natural, mineral-rich mixture that combines legendary Dead Sea salts and beneficial essential oils to exfoliate, purify, and hydrate thirsty skin. Afterward, all the crystals are washed away under a four-head Vichy shower, resulting in radiant skin that feels both soft and refreshed.

Not sure which luxurious treatment your Mother’s Day superstar might prefer? A SPA LUX gift certificate is a great way to offer up options. You can pick one up at our day spa or, for the ultimate convenience, buy one online and you can instantly print, email, or text your certificate to yourself or your loved one.­


MEET SPA LUX MASSAGE THERAPIST TAMRA LEWIS


Tamra Lewis was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She attended the local Clary Sage College where she studied a broad range of integrated massage therapies, including sports massage, pregnancy massage, hydrotherapy, reflexology, aromatherapy, East Asian spa treatments, and deep tissue massage in Tulsa.

The hands-on training and anatomy and physiology lessons Tamra received at Clary Sage are put to good use here at SPA LUX. Tamra specializes in Swedish Massage, a relaxing therapy that uses light pressure and long, soothing strokes to stimulate body flow and rebalance the client’s system. Swedish Massage is great for relaxation and stress relief but it can also help eliminate toxins, mitigate pain, and make joints more flexible. Swedish Massage is also a great entry point for clients who are new to massage or who want a relaxing session rather than a massage focused on problem areas or medical concerns.

Tamra loves working with the welcoming, dedicated, and engaged staff at SPA LUX. Everyone is eager to learn and deliver the best massage in Tulsa customer service possible, two things Tamra herself is passionate about.

When she’s not at SPA LUX, Tamra enjoys reading, hanging out with family and friends, and shopping.


Meet SPA LUX Massage Therapist August Jenks


August Jenks was born in Seattle, Washington, but he’s a proud Pacific Islander at heart.

August trained at Community Care College here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he studied massage therapy. The college’s massage program includes training in modalities like reflexology, hydrotherapy, sports and pregnancy massage, and some spa treatments, which gives students broad exposure to a wide range of invaluable skills.

As one of SPA LUX’s talented Tulsa massage therapists, August specializes in treatments such as deep tissue and muscle meltdown massages. While deep tissue massages use heavy, focused pressure to combat chronic tension and pain – ideal for clients who want to pay special attention to specific problem areas –  muscle meltdowns take a more full-body approach by using heat to warm up and relax muscles for a thoroughly therapeutic and relaxing session.

His hands expertly seek out even the most stubborn knots and deftly work them into submission. The result is a list of loyal clients that know they can visit August and leave feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and ready to take on the stresses of the real world. 

August loves being on staff at SPA LUX both for its comfortable, serene atmosphere and because of the other friendly and capable therapists he gets to work with every day. When he’s not at the spa, August spends time on his other two passions: anime and gaming.


Keep Calm and Think Prom at SPA LUX


  
Prom season is here in Tulsa. Before you go and have the time of your life, come and treat yourself to one (or more) of our many spa services. In fact, don’t make prom just one part of the evening… make it a whole daylong experience!

Here are a couple of our recommended services to consider.

SPA LUX Signature Facial with Add-On Wax

Put your best face forward and get your skin prepped, ready, and relaxed ahead of your big night. Before you get your makeup done, create a clean canvas for your flawless makeup and enjoy a relaxing facial to get rid of any dirt, oils, and impurities.

Facials are one of the most requested services at SPA LUX. The process includes thorough cleaning and toning of facial skin, followed by steam and exfoliation. Then a serum and treatment mask are applied to balance and soothe, and we finish things up with a moisturizer that leaves your skin glowing. To complete your look for the night, consider adding on a brow or lip wax for only $15.

SPA LUX Swedish Massage

Come and relax your body and feet before you dance the night away! Continue pampering yourself with a relaxing Swedish Massage from one of Tulsa’s best massage therapists. Varying timeframes are available to suit your schedule the day of prom, but we also recommend stopping by a day or two before if you aren’t already accustomed to having a massage done.
