The staff at White Pearl Body Work & Foot Spa makes sure that clients leave the massage studio relaxed from head to toe. The bodywork specialists administer long, flowing Swedish strokes as well as firm, deep-tissue kneads, shiatsu pressure, and muscle-melting hot stones during their massages. White Pearl pays special attention to extremities as well with its foot-reflexology massages.
Dramatic or demure, every makeover at Blue Velvet Beauty Lounge & Spa is dispatched with expert artistry and precise, virtuosic technique. Technicians slick nail beds with gel color, stylists snip and style, and massage therapists gently shoo away the baby elephants that attach themselves to backs. Blue Velvet's collection of skincare products and gear equips estheticians to issue a host of effective treatments: ultrasonic, microcurrent, and LED technology resurfaces complexions and helps soften discoloration, and potions from Dermalogica and Eminence grace pores with top-notch ingredients.
At Zen Therapy, Inc., head-to-toe health takes precedence over all else. Personal training, nutrition coaching, massage, and reiki therapy all aim to heal clients from within. The health center also offers aesthetics services such as facials, which work on the exterior to create a sense of well-being, mostly in knowing that your ex-dentist won't recognize you entering a competitor's office.
Sandoony USA takes the concept of the American melting pot seriously; it’s blended the bathhouse traditions of Eastern Europe into a devoted relaxation center that pairs three types of saunas with just as many pools. After a stint sweating out toxins in one of two dry Russian saunas, guests jump into the cold plunge pool to refresh their bodies and shock their pores closed without showing them the phone bill from NASA’s calls to Neptune. The hot, thick air of the Finnish sauna and Turkish steam room warm up chilled bones before the lap pool gets muscles moving again. A final soak amid the massaging jets of the jacuzzi erases any lingering stress. After drying off amid the pool deck’s tables and hanging TVs, an opulent dining room or poolside café awaits with plates such as feta-cheese-and-tomato salads or beef tongue with horseradish.
The Village Beauty Lounge's chic and relaxing space invites clients to indulge in organic therapies that enhance their looks and uplift their spirits. A climb up the back-lit staircase is the first sign that things are taking a turn for the luxurious; once inside, guests are greeted by earth-toned walls and softly-lit hanging lamps. The decor sets the mood for such uniquely pampering treatments as ice cream pedicures, citrus hot cream manicures, and curiously peanut butter-free jelly foot baths. Inside equally sleek private treatment rooms, therapists administer hot stone and aromatherapy massages. Skincare specialists, meanwhile, render complexions radiant with hydrating and vitamin C anti-aging facials. As visitors relax, wall-mounted flat-screen TVs cancel out the big city stimuli teeming on the other side of the spa's doors.
Beauty connects with holistic care inside Mon Plaisir, where European techniques fuse with Eastern philosophy to balance skin and body issues while clients relax. In keeping with a holistic approach to beauty and wellness, aestheticians use mud- and mineral-rich products from Dead Sea Minerals to nourish skin during facials. Bodies throwing tantrums about all the attention the face gets are treated to body wraps that detoxify and body treatments that add moisture to skin surfaces. With swift swipes, aestheticians remove unwanted hair during waxing, leaving skin as free from fuzz as a TV that's never met an antenna.
