Upon entering Dolce Vita Massage, guests can immediately sense the spa's relaxing, zen-like vibes as they pass Buddha statues, candles, and soft lighting. Prior to massages, they can sip on cups of hot tea or coffee. Massage therapists customize sessions to each individual's needs, and use a mix of Swedish, deep-tissue, acupressure, and trigger-point techniques. Couples massages are also available for those who wish to relax side-by-side with a significant other or friend.

Though massage therapist Melanie helps her patients find peace and calm on top of a massage table, she finds her own on the peaks of Nepalese mountains. She travels worldwide—her next trip is to Colombia to learn healing rituals directly from Lakota tribes—to find the enlightenment she needs to share with others. Her signature massage style is reiki, which she works into her other modalities, including Swedish and deep-tissue. She also incorporates aromatherapy oils into her sessions, such as invigorating blood orange and cajeput, which soothes sore muscles after taxing activity, like lifting dumbbells or catching a glimpse of Arnold Schwarzenegger in a swimsuit.

Products by brands such as Pharmagel, Aquage, Sexy Hair, Moroccanoil, Vavoom, and Essentials jump into clients' hair and hands at Lakeside Hair Boutique and Day Spa. That's because the stylists use them during hair services, but also make them available for sale in the boutique. It's not just high-end products that refresh guests, though. It's also the facials, hair extensions that last up to one year, soothing massages, and luxurious manicures and pedicures. So, in addition to stylists who re-imagine hair-scapes by using Japanese hair-straightening techniques, nail technicians host clients in cozy black leather thrones during mani-pedis. The latter might involve shiny shellac gels that last for up to two weeks without chipping or fading. Elsewhere—in private rooms—massage therapists work away knots and pent-up stress. Their methods include specialized Swedish, deep-tissue, hot stone, and aromatherapy massages, as well as just playing a tambourine on your back.

Half kids' barbershop, half toy store, Snip Snaps is equally adept at styling haircuts and hosting birthday parties. Kids can pick a fun chair for their trim, choosing from racecars and motorcycles, and then watch TV or pick out a kids' movie from the salon's extensive library. Snip Snaps even has PlayStation 2 plugged in to facilitate hassle-free haircuts. And adults needn’t worry; they can recline on a more traditional salon chair for their own cut and style.

Licensed aestheticians at Art of Aesthetics Skin Care tailor each skin care treatment to their clients' needs. They believe in diagnosing and preventing skin issues instead of finding a quick fix. They also enhance their custom facials with specialty mask treatments such as the Myoxy-Caviar mask to fight wrinkles, and the soothing rosacea treatment packed with green tea, chamomile, and licorice.
