Though its name stems from its signature service, Touch Massage has recently expanded its focus to encompass a range of spa treatments and wellness services. Inside the spa, massage therapists ease muscular pain through long strokes and focused pressure during eight types of massage, including Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, sports, and reflexology. They further encourage relaxation with add-ons such as aromatherapy oils, which blend scents of tangerine, pine, eucalyptus, basil, distilled Hawaiian sunshine, and peppermint. The staff also performs facials that rely on organic oils, deep-cleansing skincare products, and vitamin-infused solutions. To tend to clients? joints as well as skin, the spa's two owners?both certified Pilates instructors?teach slow, rhythmic movements in Pilates Reformer classes. A trusted destination for great massages for 10 years, Touch recently relocated across the street, taking their shop from Beverly Hills to LA, and evolving into a destination of overall wellness. Take relaxation to another level thanks to their dedicated, underground parking making your visit that much easier.
The lotus flower symbolizes renewal, rejuvenation, and refinement. Using this blossom as their inspiration, the beauty professionals behind Lotus Medical Group aim to help renew, rejuvenate, and refine skin with cosmetic injections, peels, and laser treatments. Noninvasive treatments help clients on a quest for weight loss to achieve shapelier silhouettes with lasers, radio frequencies, and appetite suppressants. When patients stroll through Lotus Medical Group glass doors, cherry-blossom murals greet their eyes from behind a dark wooden desk. Leather chairs, potted plants, and tan fabric couches occupy the serene space, which comfortably fits three laser-treatment rooms, four skincare rooms, and one fully functioning Gutenberg printing press.
“Never take for granted the privilege of doing what you love for a living,” says Liza Lewis, the owner of Spa 415, on her site. This philosophy is what spurs her to cull the most effective, restorative therapies and bestow them on clients within the French-Mediterranean day spa’s luxurious setting. From the damask sofas to the patterned wallpaper that’s seen through the flicker of candlelight, she creates a romantic, soothing atmosphere for tandem treatments with loved ones or an escape from everyday stresses.
The day spa’s roster of treatments spans all relaxation and beauty needs. From four-hand massages to chocolate-soufflé body wraps, the staff abolishes stress and helps nourish the skin with high-quality ingredients. They also reverse signs of aging with nonsurgical facial procedures and microroller treatments, which boost collagen to reduce wrinkles and permanent lines made from pillow creases.
During Couples Massage Class sessions, one instructor coaches five misty-eyed duos as they deliver easily mastered, Swedish-inspired strokes to their paramours. Teachers demonstrate beginner massage sequences from neck to toe before two-hour classes commence in a room ringed with mirrors, flickering candlelight, and soothing Norah Jones vocals. Clad in comfy, loose-fitting clothing, pupils de-stress while their fingers glide with provided oils and creams in an effort to fully soothe. Couples gain insight usually reserved for massage therapists and competitive jugglers, including how to keep hands moving without suffering from fatigue. Enlightened students leave with a handout that sums up all of the massage techniques necessary to easily reenact relaxation sessions at home.
Located next door to Vida Emanuel European Day Spa, Beverly Hills Beauty Lounge offers a luxurious, secluded expansion to the popular day spa. The spa's commitment to state-of-the-art skincare treatments and products extends to the beauty lounge, but nailcare services reign here. The Beauty Lounge pampers guests with firming "beauty water" during mani-pedis, which is designed to boost skin health while also serving as an astringent. A 24-karat gold red-carpet foot facial gives feet celebrity status with an essential oil soak and scrub, plus a massage followed by 24-karat gold moisturizing cream. All mani-pedi treatments are equally dedicated to softening skin and beautifying nails, like the platinum manicure, which nourishes skin with an herbal mineral soak and baobab butter.
Linda Labao dips water-heated stones into pure essential oil before resting them on her clients, which is just one way that she refuses to use hands alone. Throughout seven types of massage modalities, she employs her elbows, knees, and heels as well as her palms and knuckles to ease aches and squeeze out toxins. With experience working for chiropractors and acupuncturists, she gears each of her massages to alleviate pain as well as promote relaxation.
