Each succession of kneads is designed to alleviate stress, muscles soreness, and various medical conditions, such as high blood pressure.

A cream-colored spa accented by green sprouts, marble, and stone sets the stage for relaxation at Aqua Lifestyle Nail Salon & Spa, where skilled aestheticians bolster beauty with services for the skin, hair, and nails. Wrinkles and furrows fade into oblivion as the staff tightens skin with Lumière LED facials and turns back the clock on sun damage with the lightening peel’s cocktail of lactic acid and brightening serums. Kneeling at the foot of 1 of 17 plush pedicure chairs, a technician culls overgrowing nails, curbs wayward cuticles, and ousts spent skin with a sea-salt scrub, promoting relaxation and the joyful urge to commute via kickline. Among the salon’s other services, airbrush tanning bronzes bodies without UV exposure and gentle head-to-toe waxing treatments strip away hair with warm wax.
Flourish's relaxation experts blend Eastern and Western outlooks to help clients to "find beauty through wellness," as stated in the company philosophy. To this end, massage therapists and aestheticians make health paramount. Prior to administering any service, clients and practitioners sit down for a conversation that touches on medical history, current ailments, and run-ins with sidewalk cracks. Health professionals then proceed to administer treatments such as facials, massages, and waxes. During the ion cleanse, clients submerge their feet in a bath that draws out toxins and purifies the body through the electrolysis of the water. Body wraps also work to flush unwanted substances, leaving the body feeling lighter and more able to slither around turnstiles.
