At Simple Beauty Spa, the staff pampers clients with a full array of health and beauty services. This includes everything from facials and mani-pedis to massages and spray tans, making the spa a true beauty oasis. But it’s also a place to relax and simply feel good. And thanks to organic products used in the majority of the spa’s services, guests can even feel good mentally, and not guilty when they hug a tree or afraid when it hugs them back.
Since the 1800s, people have sought out salt caves for their healing properties. Few of those caves, however, have been equipped with cushioned lounge chairs and flat-screen TVs. At Sea Salt Therapy, patients relax in just amid luxury as they dig their toes into and fill their lungs with safe, naturally salty air. With each breath, patients inhale microparticles that holistically address asthma, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, and other respiratory ailments as well as skin issues. Co-owner Angela Kassai, a severe allergy sufferer herself, was inspired to open the center after doing research on the treatment and learning of wellness success stories from salt rooms in Europe and LA.
At Thea skin hair body mind, caring therapists help clients cultivate beauty and health from the inside out. In addition to selling makeup and skincare products by CosMedix, Jane Iredale, Rene Furterer, and Société Clinical Skincare, staffers operate a salon and spa dedicated to rejuvenating hair, skin, and the spirit within. Here, clients can unwind among warm orange walls, lush pink curtains, ornate mirrors, and globally inspired tile work. Hair services range from cutting and coloring to exotic treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal reconditioning, which both leave hair as smooth as a saxophone dipped in hot fudge. In addition to offering skincare services such as LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, spa staffers pamper bodies with nature-inspired body treatments such as sea-salt scrubs and Moroccan mud wraps.
Walking from one treatment room to another inside Tikkun Holistic Spa feels like what walking through a rainbow might be like. The deep blue-greens of the jade room give way to the pink bricks of the Himalayan salt room, and arctic-imitating landscape in the ice room shines a pale blue. Besides exuding a calming atmosphere, Tikkun Holistic Spa has one main goal: to help heal the entire world, one stressed-out person at a time. To that end, reiki master and owner Niki Han Schwarz developed her signature Korean body treatments for clients. Among those treatments is the body scrub and hot oil massage, in which scrubbing mitts exfoliate and hydrate the entire body. The spa also offers a variety of other relaxing treatments that include massage, body wraps, and facials.
Of course, the marquee draws at Massage Masters are massage services from therapists tapped to service the 1984 and 2004 Olympic teams. Their full-body massages go beyond standard deep-tissue and Swedish modalities to include Serenity massages, Paradise massages, and other bodywork treatments designed to relax and uplift. Staff aestheticians conduct European facials and body polishes that leave physical forms looking as refreshed on the outside as they feel inside. And then there's the salt cave, which helps the body regain balance and fight against disease and toxins. During visits, clients can enjoy free water and ease the transition back into the trappings of their everyday lives—work, traffic, their out-of-date home salt caves—with locker rooms and spa showers.
