A professional, affable fleet of 32 licensed massage therapists accentuate the calming atmosphere and warm vibe at The Knotstop, an independent firm focused on unwinding tangled corpuses with attentive care. Each master muscle manipulator will handedly perform whichever of the two 60-minute massage types you choose. The popular Swedish massage uses long, continuous strokes, kneading, and friction to liberate shackled muscle tissues, promoting relaxation and improved circulation. If fiery stress deposits reach down into the core, consider the deep-tissue massage, which targets buried and chronic tensions with slow, intense strokes, restoring flexibility and range of motion. Soak away the worries that have lodged themselves in the nooks of your joints and the crooks of your connective tissues, while inhaling a bouquet of soothing, therapeutic scents afforded by aromatherapy, which piques the nostrils and the mind after a triumphant kneading.
Drawing upon his training in acupuncture and Oriental medicine, Vantis Therapeutic Massage's Josh Chen tailors massage sessions using a blend of Swedish, deep-tissue, and Tui-Na strokes. In a private treatment room with soft music and aromatherapy, Chen unroots painful knots with a mixture of long glides, heavily pressured kneads, and the pushing and grasping techniques of Tui-Na or professional bullies. During massages, patrons can don comfortable clothing of choice, or change into a T-shirt and shorts provided by the spa.

Laguna Canyon Spa may be a touch off the beaten path—the wellness center rests at the edge of Laguna Coast Wilderness Park—but that just means the facility's surroundings match its tranquil interior. After all, it's there that massage therapists perform more than 10 massage styles, including the ancient techniques of Ayurvedic and shiatsu. It's also where yoga and Pilates instructors guide students through postures using mats, reformers, and wall tower equipment, and where aestheticians tend to aging, dehydrated, and acneic skin types using the muds and herbs of eight types of facials. But though the wellness center is usually as serene as a glockenspiel solo, it can still be a fun place to party. The center plays host to birthday and bachelorette parties, during which guests enjoy spa packages that can include jewelry making and henna tattoos.
