The hospitable staff at Serene Treatment takes a holistic approach to relaxation and health improvement with a repertoire of spa services geared toward smoothing skin, alleviating aches, and slimming down physiques. The seasoned team of therapists and aestheticians ensures a unique visit for each patron by performing custom-tailored body scrubs, massages, and wraps enhanced with unscented sea salts and essential oils. The facility's licensed technicians also reduce unwanted bulges and lumps throughout the body with Lypossage treatments, which skillfully evict stagnant lymphatic fluid without the need to perform surgery or yell threats into the client's bellybutton.
At Dermagenix Medical Spa, Dr. H. Kim Vo and her team of nurses and medical aestheticians rejuvenate their patients' skin the same way they would their own. "Every morning," Vo explains to Total Body Magazine, "I put on Dermagenix SPF 24." Her faith in the Dermagenix line doesn't stop there. "I exfoliate with Dermagenix foaming facial refiner," she continues. "At night, I use Dermagenix oil-free hydrating fluid."
An anti-aging specialist who personally uses their own products is a strong endorsement, and Dr. Vo and her staff further ensure that each treatment is carried out with care by beginning each one with a complimentary consultation. Whether it’s laser hair removal, a chemical peel, or an IPL photofacial, one of the onsite physicians or Vo herself oversees each procedure.
The staff at Eternity Nails knows more than just nails. Besides their three different manicures and pedicures, they provide gentle waxing and threading services. And aside from lacquering nails with gel polish and affixing acrylic sets to digits, they nourish skin and clear up blemishes with facials and microdermabrasion. Lash extensions and massage therapy round out their litany of pampering options.
At Elizabeth Esthetics and Massage, cosmeceuticals by Rhonda Allison line the shelves, and issues of Vogue and Architectural Digest are splayed across tables. These artifacts point to the fact that owner Elizabeth Sampson applies a scientific yet creative mindset when embarking on skincare treatments and massages.
Before each service, Elizabeth draws up a treatment plan that targets specific needs, from wrinkle reduction to tension relief. Then she delivers results. During the pumpkin refresher facial, she brightens skin by infusing it with antioxidants; during the deep-tissue massage, she works out concentrated tension with her elbows and thumbs. Elizabeth sees to it that every client feels comfortable during treatments. To this end, she offers complimentary beverages and answers frequently asked questions on topics such as how to pick the right massage modality and whether it's OK to drool on the face pillow.
Adan Juarez wants to make sure that tired muscles don’t get robbed of valuable recharge time. At 115 Massage, each appointment is scheduled to take up a full 75 minutes, so that clients can give detailed backgrounds to their massage therapists, who in turn can fashion an appropriate plan. Hot-stone sessions apply smooth, heated basalt rocks onto specific trigger points on the body, while deep-tissue sessions break up muscle tightness stemming from digging a hole big enough to bury your deceased pet elephant. Adan also offers clients the options of sports, Swedish, or cupping therapy, with aromatherapy available to help energize the senses.
At weMed Clinic, Chinese-trained integrative physicians Drs. You and Ma work toward their mission of fusing Western and Eastern medicine. They use and combine techniques such as acupuncture, infrared heat, cupping, moxibustion, acupressure, and herbal medicine to treat patients based on lab work and diagnostic exams.
