Deep exhalations drift past the wood paneling, cascades of draped fabric, and hillocks of pillows in the treatment rooms at Beauty Essentials Day Spa. When not kneading the backs of clients, the staff takes a holistic approach to health and works to balance the body through energy work and biofeedback sessions. Aestheticians beautify patrons with facials, nail treatments, and waxing before video conferences with business partners and regular phone calls with psychics.
I am a functional therapist. I specialize in sport related injuries. Because the body moves in a complex and synchronized manner, I treat it as such, rather than treating the injured area alone. I address all components of the kinetic chain: muscular system, joint system, and nervous system.
Dripping crystals, an intricate chandelier sheds light over a black-and-white floral-print couch in E Skincare & Wax Studio's waiting area. Art-deco supports arch to the ceiling above pink wallpaper, presaging the personalized, luxurious treatments guests enjoy farther inside. In addition to the studio's eponymous services, it offers such treatments as the M'lis body-contour wrap, which helps clients shed fat and detoxify. SofTap permanent makeup gently embellishes skin with long-lasting pigment, easing the burden of applying makeup each morning or always wearing a mask of yourself wearing makeup.
Aesthetician Susie Roman has been a local force in beauty for more than 30 years, providing Ventura County and Bakersfield with licensed health and beauty services including facials, waxes, massages, and mani-pedis. Roman’s comfortable spa and tanning salon specializes in skin-friendly packages, each accompanied by deep exfoliation and a steam treatment. After clients have been moisturized, deblemished, and completely plucked of feathers, their treatments wrap up with a soothing neck and shoulder massage.
Massage therapist Harold Kaneshiro has been dispelling clients' aches and relieving stress since 2008. He maintains a flexible portfolio of massage techniques, and with his help, muscles become equally as flexible. Thanks to his targeted kneads, clients can let go of tension and toxins while increasing their range of motion and circulation.
At Beauty Lounge Medical Spa, the staff strives to boost clients' self-image. To do so, they guide them through weight-loss programs, rejuvenate skin with exfoliating dermaplaning, and fill wrinkles with Botox. Licensed medical professionals also wield lasers designed for hair removal, body sculpting, vein removal, and photofacials.
