The attentive aestheticians at The Jennifer Day Spa blend Eastern and Western beauty and relaxation techniques to craft custom spa treatments. Clients can grab some "me time" and partake in one of 14 different facials, including supersonic treatments to nourish collagen and Photo Rejuvenation Time Machine treatments that give faces the famously smooth complexion of H.G. Wells. Aestheticians can denude any area with waxing services or snuff out tension through reflexology, which targets pressure points on the feet and hands to restore energy flow throughout the body. The Jennifer Day Spa also bundles its services together into multitreatment spa packages, many of which include the flowing strokes and gentle kneading of Swedish massage.
LaVida Massage fields a staff of male and female licensed therapists to make all guests comfortable in a gender-neutral environment. The staff calls upon a wide array of modalities, ranging from hot-stone and couples massage to aromatherapy and prenatal. They also take care of skin with peels and facials. The LaVida Signature facial refreshes visages by cleansing the skin, exfoliating it with a mask, and spraying it with a recovery mist before hydrating with lotions, serums, and condensation from a unicorn's glass of iced tea.
The technicians at New Glamour Day Spa strive to create an ambiance that is conducive to total relaxation. They focus on banishing stress via guests' senses of smell and touch: they enhance soothing Swedish, deep-tissue, and shiatsu massages with fragrant essential oils, and they aromatize facials with botanical extracts such as lemon and rosemary. The thai herbal massage combines the best of both sensory worlds, incorporating long, sweeping ankle-to-hip and hand-to-shoulder strokes with a heated sachet of detoxifying herbs that can double as a sweetly scented doorstop.
The team uses the G.M. Collin skincare line, combating specific issues with nature-based ingredients such as jojoba oil and orange-blossom water. They also offer exfoliating body treatments, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
I agree, part of our job is to remove all the stress and pains that makes our clients unhappy, and let their true personality show after the massage. A client could arrive unhappy and frowning, but would come out of their session smiling and relaxed.
Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job?
Seeing clients return month after month, hearing how their life takes them places and how we have helped them achieve their goal of a healthy life. It's like seeing a family member or close friend every time.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
We focus on health because we grew up where therapeutic massage is a part of life. That's the reason we are in this business, to help people discover the health benefit of massage??which is not glamorous, but rather a necessity.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
I learned a long time ago that every massage therapist is different. A therapist could be the best in the studio, but unless she or he is the one you need it could be the worst massage that you've had. Our goal is to match you with the right therapist that can best help you, so we highly recommend that you call ahead and let us find that right therapist for you.
Ming Hair & Nail Spa offers so many beautifying treatments, it needed two locations just to handle them all. Both shops offer a full range of hair styling services, each of which begins with a complimentary consultation. This gives the client the opportunity to voice their goals, and the stylist time to decide whether the look will properly match the patron's facial features and those of the parrot on their shoulder. Cutting, coloring, and styling all fall within the staff's expertise, as do advanced treatments such as keratin straightening.
Meanwhile, at Ming's East Brunswick location?dubbed "shop no. 1"?aestheticians attend to skin with treatments ranging from European deep-cleansing facials to LED photo-rejuvenation. Those looking to pamper their hands and feet, on the other hand, can head to shop no. 2 in Green Brook, where spa manicures and pedicures can incorporate soothing extras such as hydrating masks, sugar scrubs, and detoxifying green tea soaks.
