Take Five

Feel refreshed and relaxed at these neighborhood spots.

Holidays have you feeling stressed? South Lake Union has plenty of places that offer the perfect service to get you feeling right again. Here are five of our favorites:

1. Modern Dermatology

The swank new office of Drs. James Collyer and Heather Rogers offers medical, surgical, and aesthetic dermatology.

2. Banya 5

In addition to traditional spa services like massage, facials, and scrubs, Banya 5 offers a saltwater tepid pool, cold plunge pool, hot pool, Turkish steam room, and more.

3. Capelli’s

Gentlemen, getting a great haircut isn’t the only reason you should visit the barber. Treat yourself to a luxurious straight razor shave or one of Capelli’s many other services.

4. Life Float

Looking for an alternative way to relax? Float away your stress in a pool of Epsom salt-concentrated water, which creates a buoyant surface relieving you of your body weight. Float sessions are an hour long and are meant to help you relax and recover from injury.

5. Gary Manuel Studio

New, talented staff members provide similarly luxurious services to the full-service Gary Manuel Salon, from haircuts to color, hair and scalp therapy, and more.
