Why You Should Visit Emerge Medical & Well Spa at River Spirit Casino

If you’re planning a fun weekend away at River Spirit Casino Resort, make sure that you include a trip to the new Emerge Medical & Well Spa located inside the casino! Though we offer many of the same services in the casino spa as we do at our other location in Tulsa, several offerings are unique to the new site. Below we’ve listed some of the reasons you should visit our new Emerge Medical & Well Spa location at River Spirit Casino!

Salon Services

Our salon offers all the services you could want for your hair. If you have a ladies’ night or a special dinner with your significant other, make sure to stop by the salon to get a Brazilian Blowout or a Curling from one of our amazing stylists. We’ll make sure you leave our salon looking fabulous and ready for the evening!

We also offer hydrating treatments for hair that needs a little extra TLC. If you need your highlights touched up, we can help you with that too! Whatever it is you need, we’ll make sure you get it at our salon.

If you have a special event or a wedding at the River Spirit Casino, the Emerge Medical & Well Spa salon offers styling for those kinds of events as well.

Nail Treatments

If your nails need a little pampering, come see us at Emerge Medical & Well Spa for a manicure. We offer everything from your classic manicure and pedicure to French tip nail art. Come see us and we’ll make sure that your nails are fabulous!

Spa Day Pass

At our Emerge Medical & Well Spa in the River Spirit Casino, we offer a Spa Day Pass for $25. When you purchase this pass, you have access to a host of relaxing amenities. Come unwind in our whirlpool after a long day. Detox from your night out at the casino by sweating out some toxins in our steam room or sauna.

Difference Between a Medical Spa and a Day Spa

Medical Spa vs. Day Spa

Nothing beats a day at the spa. With a tranquil atmosphere and a focus on personal care, spas offer the chance to unwind, relax, and rejuvenate yourself. Yet, choosing a spa is not always easy, especially when the difference between a “day spa” and a “medical spa” is somewhat ambiguous. To clear up any confusion, Emerge Medical & Well Spa explains how they differ.

Day Spa

Day spas focus on relaxation, personal care, and beauty treatments. Services at a day spa can include massages, facials, mud wraps, waxes, manicures, pedicures, and more. Some spas may even include hair and makeup services as well, so you can leave the spa looking and feeling beautiful. Unlike medical spas, day spas do not offer any medical or cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and laser removal. Although they employ licensed massage therapists and cosmetologists, they do not have medical professionals on staff.

Medical Spa

Medical spas combine the personal care and cosmetic services found at day spas with medical treatments. These treatments typically focus on cosmetics, anti-aging, and skin care. Such treatments might include Botox, dermal fillers, and medical facial peels. Some medical spas, such as Emerge Medical & Well Spa, include additional services outside the realm of skin care, such as laser treatments and teeth whitening.

Keep in mind that these spas are not exclusive to medical services. Although medical treatments are available, you can still receive massages, facials, and other relaxing treatments you would find at a day spa.

Qualifications and Training

While both spas employ certified massage therapists and cosmetologists, medical spas also employ medical professionals. Several medical treatments, such as Botox, require the oversight of a medical expert to ensure the treatment is administered properly and any adverse side-effects can be addressed. If you visit one of these spas, you may speak with a registered nurse or dermatologist.

Belinda Stewart, the clinical director at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, worked as a registered nurse for over eight years before joining the Emerge team and becoming an owner in 2009. She oversees all of our medical treatments, including Botox, dermal fillers, and laser treatments. Our staff also includes several registered nurses and a nurse practitioner.

Welcome To Our New Blog

Welcome to our brand spankin’ new blog! We’re happy you’re here. You look beautiful today.

Being that we’ve had a few requests to start a blog, we thought we’d give it a shot. We hope as you follow along you’re able to see our love for medical aesthetics and day spa services, as well as learn from our own personal experiences and take away tips and tricks on the latest in health and beauty.

As some of you may know we are an award-winning staff with some pretty impressive knowledge (with certificates to back them up) however one thing we are not is professional writers, so keep that in mind as you read each one. Lol.

For almost the last ten years we were a Medical Day Spa located on the corner of 91st and Sheridan in South Tulsa but now, hold on to your knickers, we have TWO locations.

The new Emerge Spa (and salon) at River Spirit Casino Resort just opened last week. I mean, you gotta’ see this place. It’s…incredible. I’m talking steam rooms, saunas, women’s whirlpool tub, full service salon, the works. You’ve never experienced luxury like this, but let’s get back on track here.

Listen, we’re about beauty, health and wellness. Period. We’re in this business for one reason. To make men and women of all ages feel and look their best and to give them the confidence they need and deserve.

We know what each of our clients are going through, we too are worried about aging and want to look as young as we feel. We get it.  And there’s nothing we haven’t seen. For real. We’ve got years of experience under our belts.

So, if you’re thinking “I’m embarrassed because I have *insert said skin condition here*,” don’t be. No judgment on our end, we’re just here to help.

So, let’s talk about what’s up next and that is injectables. Ahh, injectables. For some that can be a scary word, but for us it’s an exciting word with endless possibilities. We’re going to debunk any myths you may have heard about them as well as share some helpful information including what they’re made of, how they work and what you can expect from your treatment and results.

In the next twelve weeks you’ll hear from Belinda Stewart, one of our owners (alongside Taryn Schell). Belinda is also a Registered Nurse and Allergan Certified Injectable Trainer. You’ll also hear from Ric Harrison, one of our close personal friends and client and myself, Director of Marketing and Social Media. Thanks again for joining us and we hope you tune in each week to learn more about us and if we haven’t met you already, we hope to soon!
