Aestheticians combine skincare savvy with a tender touch to perform an abundance of pampering treatments in Renew Massage & Skin Care's charming spa atmosphere. Staffers massage the scalp, neck, and shoulders and offer warm aromatherapy towels during most facials. Four types of clinical peels can help to remove dead skin and the ghost of sunburns past. The team further accentuates countenances' beauty with antioxidant-rich makeup by glo minerals. To reduce stress or chronic pain, massage pros employ modalities such as a lomi-lomi treatment that fizzles tension with long, forearm-based strokes. The spa includes shower and locker-room facilities for guests to change into more comfortable outfits and a stately fireplace in its waiting area for warming hands or burning out-of-date day planners.
My Oasis Spa's massage therapists work their natural magic by making stress disappear and conjuring a decidedly relaxed rabbit in its place during reflexology and reiki sessions. The spa's aestheticians shore up the pamper presence by feeding skin with a combination of facials, masks, and peels. During one-hour reflexology treatments, skilled energy-manipulators lay organic heat pads on feet and conjure aromatherapeutic oils to shake off negative vibes as acupressure and trigger-point techniques release tension built-up from day jobs spent as human guitar strings. Soft music and soy-based candles lull clients into a trance during manual lymphatic-drainage sessions, wherein hands-on healing works to dispel toxins from the body. Aromatherapy facials blend essential oils and plant extracts to revitalize skin.
When clients open the door to Daravadee Spa & Massage Therapy, the heady scents of lemongrass and jasmine come flowing past noses before eyes lock onto decorative Thai statues and delicate orchids. Within candlelit treatment rooms, staff members trained in ancient eastern healing techniques employ their skills to soothe muscle tension and purify complexions. Among the therapies offered at Daravadee, yoga-like Thai massage, herbal compresses of tamarind and kaffir leaves, and all-natural spa products set the center apart from other relaxation oases. But Daravadee’s most unique offering is guasa. A body-scrub treatment rooted in Chinese healing practices, guasa helps boost circulation and detoxify skin with the help of a wooden sloughing instrument. Each treatment is performed in a private room, ensuring privacy and comfort for clients and their shy backs.
Just walking distance from the Long Beach Convention Center lies a 2,000-square-foot oasis and two-time MyFoxLA Hot List winner. The historic downtown building houses four separate treatment rooms where aestheticians and massage therapists perform a variety of facials, massages, scrubs, wraps, and manicures. Their menu of international therapies borrows seaweed mud and traditions from France, Italy, India, and the Middle East, and their medical facials are performed under the direction of a board-certified dermatologist. In addition to individual clients who arrive solo for a day of pampering, La Dolce Vita invites groups celebrating birthdays, wedding days, and spa-appreciation days.
Brocade throw pillows, teak furniture, and gauzy curtains inside True Beauty Wellness Spa evokes a Silk Road caravan transporting a queen across the dessert. True to its regal setting, the spa's treatment rooms are each goddess-themed, and reflect aspects such as Lakshmi's bounty, Minerva's wisdom, and Isis's love of heavy metal. Within these rooms, men, women, and couples can relax during soothing massages or 15 kinds of facials that use organic ingredients. In addition to these spa services, True Beauty houses a yoga studio and chiropractic services for whole-body health.
