At Comfort & Joy Wellness Spa, a team of aestheticians and massage therapists restores clients’ balance of tranquility, health, and beauty with ayurvedic treatments and organic products. Heated herbal packs, drizzles of warm oil, and the sound of whales singing Kenny G usher in peace during the Shirodhara ritual. Moroccan salt-glow body scrubs burnish skin with Dead Sea minerals and tangerine essential oil for dewy complexions. Staff members also perform European-inspired services with Epicuren and suki skincare products, SpaRitual vegan nail lacquer, and natural hair-coloring lines.
From eyelash extensions to manicures and pedicures, the Modern Nails & Lashes team literally beautifies clients from head to toe. After a waxing treatment, facial, or massage, clients relax in the pale green and blue pedicure area, which is bordered by a wood trellis woven with branch-like sculptures. Complimentary WiFi waves perform invisible ballets through the air as nail techs dole out free pedicures to children 5 and younger—available in conjunction with their parents' services.
Cheyenne Liao and the team at Chi Wellness were inspired to pursue Chinese medicine and holistic healing by family members who practiced the science before them. They combine Western and Eastern medical therapies to treat everything from migraines and carpal tunnel to sports injuries, whiplash, and chronic pain.
In addition to medical massage and acupuncture, which can help patients in the treatment of pain, smoking cessation, and weight loss, clients can also benefit from a comprehensive array of treatments directed at specific conditions, including massage modalities such as Swedish, prenatal, and trigger point therapy, as well as herbal medicine. But no matter the treatment, the practitioners believe that the body should be treated as a whole, and work to promote full-body wellness through their targeted services.
For aesthetician Petra, caring for people is a calling. More than 25 years ago, she started her career as a radiologist and trauma-center worker in Germany. She eventually traveled to the United States and decided to focus her expertise in aesthetics by opening her own spa. From this boutique haven she continues to care for others—this time with a range of European aesthetic treatments.
At Petra's Skin Spa, she performs seven kinds of tailored facials using Guinot skincare products to even texture and tone. She can reduce the appearance of cellulite and banish toxins from the body with the help of wraps and scrubs, which she blends with Swiss aromatherapy oils and seawater ions. Given her medical background, Petra can even perform advanced med-spa services including laser skin resurfacing.
