Don't be surprised if you suddenly feel more relaxed upon entering Ocean Day Spa. The full-service spa's interior was inspired by the Zen tenet of simplicity, and bamboo plants next to comfy chairs help set the tone. There's also something you won't see: gemstones were placed inside the spa's walls as it was being built to create balance, peace, and harmony within.
The serene setting is the perfect place to get a signature spa treatment such as a warm bamboo massage, which uses heated bamboo rods and lemongrass essential oil to relax muscles and eliminate aches. When it comes to skincare, a pumpkin facial peel polishes skin with fruit enzymes and ingredients that help reduce sun damage. These complex treatments are administered by the spa's talented staff.

Clients of One Good Massage don't have to worry about knowing the difference between a Swedish massage and a deep-tissue massage. Only one massage modality is listed on the menu, a modality owner and CMT Ruben De La Mora created after years of massage therapy practice. He realized that most of his clients' woes couldn't be solved with just one massage style. So he developed what he calls "integrated massage," during which he draws on multiple modalities in order to customize a session that suits the individual client. Mirroring the relaxation of his massages, his studio is replete with warm colors, such the rich browns of the carved wood embellishments to the deep burgundy accents, all counterbalanced by creamy earth tones and live plants that croon soothing arias.
