“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.
After receiving her education in England and training in the salons of industry giants such as Georgette Klinger and Frederic Fekkai, Aban Patel decided it was time to create her own beauty legacy. So the Bombay native opened Abanara Skin Esthetics, where she calls upon more than two decades of experience in skincare, massage, and energy work to transform bodies inside and out. During facial treatments, she employs modern anti-aging technology—including ultrasonic waves and micro-currents that diminish fine lines—yet remains true to her holistic philosophy by handcrafting all-natural, plant-based cleansers and lotions, which she uses alongside professional products by brands such as Osmosis and Susan Ciminelli.
Patel also offers reflexology sessions designed to remedy physical ills and chakra clearing to restore energy flow to systems blocked by negative thoughts or swallowed construction horses. The tranquil spa is tucked inside a quaint cobblestone courtyard filled with natural light and potted plants, making it the perfect place for those looking to escape everyday tension or photosynthesize in private.
Renowned physician Dr. Andre Berger and his staff at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute aim to restore vibrancy to world-weary bodies with a blend of modern medical techniques and time-honored holistic therapies. Dr. Berger's repertoire of figure-sculpting procedures coaxes fatty tissues from hips, buttocks, and thighs to leave sleeker silhouettes. The noninvasive or minimally invasive techniques, which include skin-tightening lasers and liposuction, allow Dr. Berger to renegotiate bodily curves without the need for general anesthesia or costly bribes to the bosses of lipid unions. He also helps patients shed pounds with a holistic medicinal approach, combining hormone therapy with nutritional and lifestyle counseling to give patients control over their own fitness destinies.
