While people share tons of traits in common, you’re the only one in the world with skin exactly like yours. That's why the technicians at Natina Day Spa formulate their facials based on each individual's tone and texture. This customization process revolves around the spa's signature product: MVP skincare by Dr. Divina. MVP––an acronym for Molecular, Viability, and Potentiate––combines fruit enzymes, algae extract, and blended copies of Time magazine to naturally reduce signs of aging. The spa’s beautification processes also extend beyond the face; waxing sessions remove unwanted hair, body contouring slims down silhouettes, and soothing aromatherapy and bodywork sessions bust up stress from the comfort of private treatment rooms.
At Happy Feet Massage, massage therapists relieve knots and aches using strokes and pressure adjusted to your personal preference. As the name suggests, the Happy Feet team administer their soothing services to feet, but they also perform body massages, applying a number of modalities and oils to maximize relaxation. During treatment, clients lie down amid warm purple walls and white sheer curtains as a chorus of whales performs soothing Gregorian chants in the background.
The nail technicians at Bella Piaz Salon & Spa focus on beautifying natural nails. Eschewing acrylics?and the fumes and damaging drilling that come with them?they daub their clients? fingertips with non-formaldehyde polish or CND Shellac. Elsewhere in the salon, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and adorns hair with feather and tinsel extensions. In the spa, staffers whip up customized facials to target acne and rosacea, or treat guests to other services such as waxing, aromatherapeutic massages, and spa parties for all occasions.
