Ani Miryala started learning ancient-Indian skincare techniques at an age when most people think "acne" is the misspelling of a Road-Runner plot. Surrounded by uncles who were practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine, Miryala immersed herself in the noninvasive organic methods taught at the family beauty school, eventually opening a spa with her three sisters. As Kate Hamilton of Skin Inc. magazine reported in 2008, Miryala now owns one of the largest female-operated companies in southern India and has brought time-honored Indian traditions to the United States at Anoo's Herbal Day Spa and a dozen other locations worldwide.
The aesthetician and published author has amassed a team of licensed specialists that rejuvenates minds and bodies with chemical-free treatments. Hair-removal technicians refine 80–120 eyebrows per day with signature threading services, leaving behind more clearly defined arches than a freshly poured sidewalk. Pesticide-free fruits and vegetables nourish skin during Indian facials, and natural peels and herbal-microdermabrasion techniques leave faces smooth and glowing. To combat stress, the crew massages muscles with an ancient herbal-wheat-dough method that turns muscles into soft, buttery loaves of relaxation.
Owner and experienced massage therapist Michael Church organizes his business around the belief that the difference between giving a good massage and a great massage is “asking the right questions and customizing [the massage] to the customer’s needs.” His therapists begin each new-client relationship with a review of the client’s grievances, lifestyle habits, and professional wrestling history, and then they check in with their patients throughout each treatment to better understand where to focus pressure.
Each massage style is priced the same, freeing people to mix and match modalities such as deep tissue, Swedish, and trigger point within single sessions. The therapists also add hot stones to massages, and the team plans to grow its repertoire of treatments that utilize healing laser and light therapies.

The soft teal walls of Royal Palm Wellness & MedSpa's private treatment rooms shelter a variety of state-of-the-art devices designed to improve appearance without surgery.

The med spa also performs CelluPulse cellulite therapy, which smoothes dimples with waves of pressure that manipulate underlying tissues to relocate superficial fat cells, restoring firmness and elasticity to the skin.
The aroma of jasmine, lavender, and tea rose essential oils fills the air at Nadege Nails & Salon as technicians buff nails and push back cuticles with their gleaming tools. In addition to crowning digits with acrylic and gel nails, technicians smooth rough skin with banana oil and coconut scrubs during deluxe manicures and pedicures. Orange and white fabric draped between pedicure chairs, bright vases of gerbera daisies, and butterfly wall accents complement the colorful polishes and bright scents wafting through the salon. Facial- and body-waxing services are also packed with aroma enhancements, such as milk chocolate, brazilian nut, and espresso, which leave skin soft and encourage nibbles from wild Keebler elves.
