From Image Salon & Day Spa’s airy reception area, corridors lead to relaxing massage rooms with beige walls and hardwood flooring.

A trio of three doctors and an experienced advanced nurse practitioner perform every procedure at aNu Aesthetics, specializing in clinical-grade, nonsurgical skincare treatments that aim to erase signs of aging. Botox injections and cosmetic fillers such as Juvéderm and Restylane work to smooth fine lines, and noninvasive treatments, such as chemical peels and microplaning, deeply exfoliate the entire face to leave skin rejuvenated. To keep epidermises glowing, the staff stocks shelves with SkinCeuticals products and locally harvested pixie dust.
For Maya Zahira, belly-dancing is both an activity and a prescription. She views the dance as a healing act that can affect the mind as well as the body and has personally reaped its many benefits—practicing the art helped her to lose 100 pounds. Today, she leads private, semiprivate, and group lessons for all skill levels. Her classes are geared toward women of every age and build because Maya maintains a safe, positive setting for rehearsing sinuous techniques. Regardless of each pupil's experience, she strives to build their sense of confidence and poise simultaneously.
Weekly class series highlight beginning and intermediate choreography and outfit dancers with props such as hip scarves, finger cymbals, and, for advanced protégés, a second belly on their back. During Slow Burn Bellydance sessions, Maya shifts her attention to strengthening core muscles with the dance's hypnotizing isolations. She can target her private classes and workshops toward specific goals, whether clients want to perfect their arm work or learn to twirl with veils; she also performs at special events from birthday parties to wedding receptions.

Licensed aesthetician Erica Munoz, owner of Spa Catalina, helms a staff of beauty maestros, who conduct a symphony of skin-sprucing treatments. Erica has studied under Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified doctor and frequent guest on Good Morning America. And Spa Catalina's laser technicians each achieved national certification in laser technology before they began setting to work removing unwanted hair or etching their initials in the moon. Laser hair-removal treatments toast follicular pigment with intense light energy, shutting down strand-production factories without harming the surrounding tissue. When they aren't zapping epidermises, Spa Catalina's experts mollycoddle visages with facials, ease the appearance of aging through microdermabrasion and dermaplaning, and swaddle corpuses in relaxing body wraps.
